Greg Russak‘s insight:

"This veneer of credibility that Kelly has acquired is what makes her more dangerous: in an age where the false balance of he said-she said reporting too often has replaced fact-checking, media will be more likely to take Kelly’s scandal-mongering seriously. But Kelly’s strength in achieving relevancy also speaks to Roger Ailes’ motive: elevating Megyn Kelly is more about a political strategy than about a business strategy." – John Whitehouse, Media Matters blog

Corporate media across the entire spectrum has done and is doing a huge disservice to America by engaging almost exclusively in the he-said-she-said model of reporting as if all sides have something of equal validity to contribute.

Proud middle class husband, father, and progressive liberal. Registered Non-Partisan but have much more in common with Democrats than Republicans. Consider Libertarians to be immature and underdeveloped in their understanding of reality. An atheist who doesn't care what you believe so long as you stop pretending the Founding Fathers intended for you to legislatively force your beliefs on everyone else. Laughs out loud in mocking disdain at the abject lunacy of birthers, climate science deniers, and hard core tea partiers. If that offends you, too bad. You're not rational and have no place at the adult table.
