Hear What Megyn Kelly Regrets Saying to Obama at the White House Holiday Party: VIDEO

Kelly

FOX News Anchor Megyn Kelly attended her first White House holiday reception this week at which she had a meet-and-greet with President Obama and the First Lady, she told Jimmy Kimmel last night.

Upon reaching the front of the receiving line, Obama said to her, “The White House is a pretty fun place, isn’t it?”

To which she replied, "It is. Maybe we'll be here in two years."

Kelly claims she was making a joke about her and her husband Doug running for President or something and says it was absolutely, positively not "a shot" at Obama about Republicans and FOX News taking back the White House.

Says Kelly: "President Obama, I apologize. I didn't mean it that way."

Fox News' Megyn Kelly had something of a f--- up last night on air, when she introduced former Governor Mike Huckabee and name checked his Fox News show incorrectly. From the Blaze:

“Joining me now, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, who is the host of F***a—,” she said, before noticing her error and immediately correcting it.

Fox News Blames Marriage Equality For Decline in Marriage Rates

Screenshot 2014-10-14 14.11.54

Fox News correspondents Bret Baier and Shannon Bream took to the conservative network’s Special Report to reinforce the widely debunked idea that same sex marriage poses a clear and present threat to heterosexual marriages. Growing support for marriage equality, the talking heads reasoned, actively discouraged straight people from considering “traditional marriage,” and was one of the major contributing factors to the overall decline in marriage rates in the US.

The false correlation between rise in gay marriage and the fall of straight marriages was thoroughly disproved in a study conducted by Portland State University’s School of Community Health last June.

“[W]e found that adult rates of opposite sex marriage in states implementing same sex marriage laws were equivalent to rates in states with no such laws,” researchers explained. “[W]e find that any differences appear to due to chance alone.”

“The question of whether states ought to legally provide same sex couples with the legal status of marriage, or a related, though less regarded and less beneficial status of same sex union cannot be answered solely in terms of the effect on opposite sex marriages. However, a deleterious effect on rates of state rates of opposite sex marriage has been argued to be a motivating factor for both the withholding and the elimination of existing rights of same sex couples to marry by policy makers–including presiding justices of current litigation over same sex couples rights to legally marry. Such claims do not appear credible in the face of the existing evidence.”

Fox News Correspondent Todd Starnes Thinks Gay Marriage Will Lead to Man-Dog Marriage: VIDEO

JoniShow

Appearing on the Daystar talk show "Joni" last month, Fox News commentator Todd Starnes felt the need to get some personal woes off his chest and lament the redefinition of marriage at the hands of the gays. 

In one segment, Starnes agreed with another guest in saying that same-sex marriage allows for countless other forms of commitments to be made, including a man wanting to marry his dog--all this from a conversation about the Denver bakery that refused to make a cake for a same-sex wedding.

And in another segment, Starnes said that he believes "the government is going to have to start coming after pastors in the pulpit," lamenting the probability that stricter hate crime laws (like the ones censoring anti-gay speech on Christian talk radio in Canada) will make their way to the United States. "I think that we're going to see some pastors who, quite frankly, may have to go to jail to protect their religious beliefs." If that weren't enough, he also throws out the old religious freedom argument, saying: "If I wanted to be persecuted for my faith I would go move to China. I like to live in America where we don't get beat up on the way to church." A classy line coming from someone boo-hooing about hate crime laws.

Fox News On Ray Rice Elevator Assault: 'I Think The Message Is, Take The Stairs' - VIDEO

Fox

In the wake of the scandal surrounding NFL Ravens' player Ray Rice being caught on camera assaulting his then fiance while on an elevator, Fox & Friends yesterday decided to place the blame for the assault squarely on the shoulders of the victim, Janay Rice, and suggest the biggest take away from the whole incident was to make sure to assault people where there aren't any cameras around. Think Progress reports:

Responding to the video, Fox host Brian Kilmeade on Monday blasted the victims of domestic violence, criticizing Palmer (now Janay Rice) and other women who don’t break up with their partner after a domestic violence incident, saying they send a “terrible message.”

Kilmeade then proceeded to provide mocking advice to Palmer, quipping, “I think the message is, take the stairs.” Co-host Steve Doocey gamely joined in, “The message is, when you’re in an elevator, there’s a camera.”

Today, Fox & Friends responded to the backlash by stating, “Comments that were made during this story made some feel like we are taking the situation too lightly. We are not, we were not. Domestic violence is a very serious issue to us, I can assure you.”

Megyn Kelly Invites on Hate Leader Tony Perkins More Than All Other Fox News Hosts Combined: VIDEO

Screen Shot 2014-08-08 at 10.37.04 AM

A new report by Media Matters finds Fox News personality Megyn Kelly guilty of inviting on anti-gay hate group leader Tony Perkins more than all other network programs combined.

According to the report, Kelly's shows account for 17 of Perkins' 30 Fox News appearances since the end of the 2012 GOP primary season.

Media Matters adds:

But these numbers don't fully account for Kelly's role in whitewashing the anti-LGBT animus that motivates Perkins' and FRC's work. She's described FRC as "a group whose mission is to advance faith, family, and freedom in public policy and culture from a Christian worldview." And Kelly has repeatedly peddled Perkins' own talking points - suggesting that "Christian beliefs and Christian rights" are being trampled as LGBT rights are ascendant, charging gay rights activists with being intolerant, lamenting that it must be "alienating" for Perkins to be criticized for his anti-LGBT views.
