Megyn Kelly said, regarding her attacks on Donald Trump: I ‘Will Not Apologize for Doing Good Journalism’. What she did wasn’t “Good” journalism. It was “Yellow Journalism”(1) and she needs to apoligize for that. But Kelly is practiced at deceit and deception. She supposedly works for a station that’s “Fair and Balanced” but her statements to Donald Trump were unfair and unbalanced. She never mentioned anything good that Trump did before trying to trap him by testifying against him in the form of a statement before asking a question. Her statement was false. Trump denied it. She persisted in her hate-based demagoguery.

Kelly can apologize or defend her false statements but she cannot do both. She choose to defend by apologizing for something she didn’t do which was engage in good journalism. Even worse, she is telling Trump she will not respond but it’s up to Trump to decide whether or not he should trust her. Of course she can no longer be trusted. That’s the consequence for her stubbornness.

1. from Wikipedia: Yellow journalism presents little or no legitimate well-researched news and instead uses eye-catching headlines to sell more newspapers. Techniques may include exaggerations of news events, scandal-mongering, or sensationalism. By extension, the term yellow journalism is used today as a pejorative to decry any journalism that treats news in an unprofessional or unethical fashion.
