It’s pretty often these days where you see politicians go after the media — after all, it’s one of their favorite things to do! What is a little bit more surprising these days is seeing occasions in with the media goes after each other, in particular when you’re talking about two people from the same network.
Yet, that is precisely what happened here today with Sean Hannity and Megyn Kelly on Fox News. This began during Megyn’s show “The Kelly File,” where she accused Presidential nominees Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton of only doing interviews with news reporters who they felt represented a specific point of view that they appreciated. Specifically, she cited the frequency in which Trump does interviews with her colleague Sean Hannity, someone close enough to Trump that the nominee even referenced him in a speech during this past Presidential Debate.
Let’s just say that Hannity wasn’t altogether pleased with the call-out, given that he accused her on Twitter of supporting Clinton while reminding her that he did speak with her for a special airing on Fox earlier this year.
Whose side are we on? For the time being probably Kelly’s, mostly because Hannity took things to a more personal level in claiming that her comments represented in some way who she was planning to vote for in the November election. With this being said, it is also worth noting that Kelly and Trump have a well-documented history of discord that dates all the way back to early Presidential debates, where Trump took objection to her line of questioning and proceeded to engage in a series of heated social-media comments about her.
