The Loyal Opposition
A classic example of Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly’s interview style here, as she eggs on Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) to demand the resignation of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.). First question:
There are some who are saying, given her statements all over the board on this, and an open accusation that our CIA has been lying to the U.S. Congress, that she needs to step down from the speakership. What say you?
Can she be held accountable if, indeed, the American public believes that she lied, if the members of the House believe that she lied, and that on top of lying she then threw our CIA under the bus, what can be done to take away her speakership?
No member of Congress was demanding that Pelosi resign, but “some were saying” that she should, so now Steve King is. The coverage of this on Fox News has really been fascinating, and similar to the way the network got members of Congress to demand the resignation of Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner over, er, the falling Dow Jones index.
