Fox News host Megyn Kelly insisted in an interview over the weekend that her network had no “right-wing bias,” and that it was, in fact, “fair and balanced” like the slogan said.
While speaking to CBS host Charlie Rose from her studio recently, the Fox News host blasted “most of news” for having a “left-leaning bias.”
“You don’t believe there is a right-wing bias at Fox, a conservative bias at Fox?” Rose interrupted.
“No,” Kelly quickly replied. “No, I don’t. I think that Fox News is fair and balanced. And I think the conservatives who are on air here make no bones about their ideology.”
“But does Fox News have a closer relationship with Donald Trump, with the Republican Party than it does with liberals and the Democratic Party?” Rose pressed.
“That’s obviously true because you see Trump on our air every day,” Kelly admitted.
As for her contentious relationship with the Republican front-runner, the Fox News host said that she would “absolutely” welcome him on her show without asking for an apology.

Beto O’Rourke calls for a ‘war tax’ in release of health care plan for veterans
The Democratic presidential candidate uses his eighth policy announcement to focus on an area that he prioritized in Congress.
Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke on Monday morning released a plan to improve the lives of veterans, returning to an area of priority during his time in the U.S. House for his latest 2020 policy rollout.
In keeping with measures he supported in Congress, the plan calls for a "responsible end" to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan — reinvesting $1 out of every $2 saved in veterans programs — and the creation of a Veterans Health Care Trust Fund for each future war. The fund would be paid for by a "war tax" on households without service members or veterans.
Conservative Ben Shapiro tweeted something many found offensive — so now he’s calling his critics ‘garbage’
Right wing "thought leader" Ben Shapiro appeared today to say not using the "N" word is nearly impossible as he defended conservative, pro-gun teen Kyle Kashuv, one of the Parkland survivors who just had his acceptance to Harvard rescinded over his racist remarks, which included repeated use of the "N" word.
To be clear, Shapiro denies that's what he meant.
Here is Shapiro on Twitter, in what many took as him appearing to call not using the "N" word – in Kashuv's case, repeatedly, over and over and over again, "an insane, cruel standard no one can possibly meet."
