FOX News Anchor Megyn Kelly Rips Keith Ablow Over Allegations That Chaz Bono Will Make Kids Change Gender: VIDEO


FOX News anchor Megyn Kelly rips Dr. Keith Ablow for "adding to the hate" against transgender people in response to his FOX News editorial suggesting that Chaz Bono on Dancing with the Stars would cause children to want to switch gender.

Says Kelly: "I think the viewers get this...Our children are no more likely to turn transgender from watching Chaz Bono than they are to turn gay by watching Will & Grace. You either are, or you're not."

  3. Clearly she was replaced with a reprogrammed cloned while away on maternity leave this summer. That's the only way I can come to terms with the fact that she's made sense and I've agreed with her on more than on occasion in just a matter of weeks. Maybe the right has gone too far even for some members of FOX's regime.

  15. Allow me to echo everyone else when I say wtf is going on here?! This must really have pissed off Fox's key demographic of mildly demented 65-year-olds.

  16. So, what I got is that... Transgenders are zebras? Just kidding, but this stupid guy can’t even begin to understand the difference between biological gender and psychological one (provided by culture), so he has to get back to school or do a course. Nah… he is just a bigot.

  17. How lonely must it be for a bigot when even Faux News outs you?

    Terrific Job, Megan - Finally Fair and Balanced. One time in a million Faux news lives up to its tag line.

  18. Wow this coming from Megyn Kelly from FAUX News?! I'm dumbstruck!

    Megyn Kelly apologizing for her remark in 3...2...

  19. Never forget that Megyn Kelly compared gays to pedophiles during the debate over the hate crimes bill.

    Never forget that she defended Justice Scalia when he said that gay sex should be viewed with the same contempt as murder. She actually said on air that it wasn't an attack on the LGBT community.

    How is equating being gay with committing murder NOT an attack on the gay community?

    It does seem true that something has softened her position on gays though.

    She has also done some horribly racist segments on her show. She breathlessly hyped an isolated incident where two men were harassing people on a street corner near a voting center for months as the resurgence of a national Black Panther movement.

  20. Miss Kelly probably needs to have some conservative chips replaced on her motherboard. She's going to end up on CNN soon at this rate.

  22. It's rarely ever fair to paint with a broad brush, and that remains the case for Fox News. For all the Glenn Becks and Bill O'Reillys and those idiots in the morning, there are some good ones like Baier, Greta, and Megyn Kelly.

  23. This is a propaganda technique for - get the hate message out there for the IMPACT and get people voting GOP .... and then send the good cop out.

    Bad Cop Good Cop = this is an evil woman, still will be even if she turns out to support civil rights.

  24. I am stunned by this. A Faux News reporter who calls a colleague out for hating? A Faux News reporter who recognizes a blatant lie when she sees one? Is Roger Ailes still breathing?

    Megan Kelly has either been transformed by becoming a mother or has been reprogrammed while on maternity leave. Or maybe nothing is what it seems, anymore.

  25. Another poster pointed out that we should not forget her previous transgressions as we applaud her for her for her current act of Acceptance. And I do agree, however, one most remember, this was BEFORE she became a parent. Now she's realizing there are other people to consider in this world. What were to happen if her child were transgender, or gay, or to fall in love with someone of another race?

    Usually, when you have a child your heart opens to more than your original view. Not always, but often. Hopefully this means that as any of the non-parent newscasters of Faux (I love that one by the way) become parents, we'll start to see some balance in their reporting.
