Former Fox News host Megyn Kelly brought her podcast over to SiriusXM Radio, and on her Tuesday debut, promised to combat the “bulls–t censorship of free speech.”
“We’re doing this program because we believe there is an urgent need for independent voices in the media landscape — hosts who are not committed to corporate agendas, partisan jerseys, or simply committed to stoking your outrage day-in and day-out,” she announced.
“We are not Woke, and we are no one’s sycophant. And we are entirely over the bulls*** censorship of free speech and debate that has seized hold of most media, education, Hollywood, sports, and corporate America,” Kelly went on.
She shared a statistic that two out of three Americans are afraid of the social repercussions for sharing their political beliefs, which she remarked, “is insane, but it is our reality.”
“When you hear the news discussed without a filter, without crippling concern for who’s going to claim offense or try to cancel you, it is a joy. It is intellectually stimulating. It’s wonderfully American. And it’s what you can expect from us,” Kelly said.
In an interview promoting her show, Kelly blasted liberal hosts Don Lemon, Joy Reid, Brian Williams, and Chris Cuomo for skewing the facts during their reporting.
“Don Lemon is out there every night telling everybody what bigots they are. Meanwhile, this is a man who has been credibly accused of shoving his hands down the pants, fondling the genitals, and rubbing his hands all over a stranger in a bar,” she said.
“Don’t even get me started on Chris Cuomo,” Kelly continued. “These are our moral arbiters who are casting judgment on regular American citizens who, for the most part, are powerless to fight back.”
She called out Joy Reid for being “one of the worst offenders,” and said she has information that she is “not at liberty to share” about MSNBC. “They put Brian Williams back on the air after about dozens, if not hundreds, of lies.”
