MEGYN KELLY (HOST): I think this is a massive error. I think this is a massive misjudgement of what their audience wants. I - If you - If this is a reaction to the Dominion lawsuit why is Maria Bartiromo there? Why is Jeanine Pirro still there? Why is Suzanne Scott still there? The CEO of Fox News. She got them in far more trouble with her executive emails panicking about Dominion and the audience than anything Tucker did behind the scenes.
I realize the left hates Tucker's guts. I get that this is a joyful day for them but internally at Fox they always had that gauge, at least under Roger Ailes, of how to ignore those critics and do what was right for the channel and its audience and the truth. And they lost that in the context of Dominion, as we've discussed on this program many times. But that was not due to anything Tucker did. Yes, there were a couple of controversial emails, we discussed those at length, go back and look at my Dominion shows, I've spared no one. But this is an extraordinary move for a channel that appears to be very worried about its audience.
