MEGYN KELLY (HOST): So my interview with Donald Trump earning lots of viewers and lots of reviews last night. It was the second most watched show on a Tuesday on Fox Broadcasting in 2016. For that we thank all of you. However, it also earned the scourge of many in the mainstream media because it was not a takedown of Trump. Not surprisingly, many of these very critics failed to disclose their own bias against Trump, against Fox News or against the GOP. Here's just a few examples. James Warren of Poynter.org writing for Vanity Fair called it “soft as a grape session.”  This is the same man who dismissed the entire Republican Party as quote “anti-female.”  Erik Wemple of The Washington Post has made no secret of his hatred for Trump, calling him a bigot and a misogynist. Wemple wrote that I should dismember Donald Trump. Today, Wemple is upset that I quote “did not get personal about what Trump's behavior has done to my life." As if an interview about Trump should instead be about me. Hank Stuever of The Washington Post said, I brought too much attention to myself. He found the sitdown uninformative. More informative, Hank's true opinion of Donald Trump, who Hank called a quote “hateful, nonsensical, vainglorious candidate.”  Amy Davidson of the New Yorker said I quote “surrendered to Trump,” who she dismisses as a quote “brazen liar.”  This is the same woman who in January accused Fox News of using yours truly as a debate moderator not for any broadcasting talent, but because it's fun to show off the oddity of a quote, “smart blond."
