NYT Says Megyn Kelly Won’t Be ‘Cowed’ (Sic!) By Trump

‘Cowed’? Isn’t that a sexist term? Will there be an apology from the New York Times?

From the New York Times:

Megyn Kelly Says She Won’t Be Cowed by Donald Trump

By JEREMY W. PETERS and DANIEL VICTOR | August 10, 2015

Megyn Kelly opened her Fox News program on Monday night by addressing the uproar over Donald J. Trump’s personal attacks on her, her first comments since he made a remark that many interpreted as a reference to her menstrual cycle.

Naturally the NYT had to work in the ‘blood libel’ into their lead.

“I certainly will not apologize for doing good journalism, so I’ll continue doing my job without fear or favor,” she told viewers in brief comments on her show, “The Kelly File.”

The "without fear or favor" line is from the founder of the NYT. Which tells you how heavily the old grey lady looms in Ms. Kelly’s mind.

She said she would not respond directly to any of Mr. Trump’s numerous insults and disparaging statements about her. Mr. Trump and many of his supporters have unleashed a social media assault against Ms. Kelly and Fox News…

The NYT is just mad. They thought attacking Fox News was their exclusive domain.

Mr. Trump spoke with Fox’s chairman, Roger Ailes, about the situation on Monday in a conversation that Mr. Ailes characterized as “blunt but cordial.” “We discussed our concerns, and I again expressed my confidence in Megyn Kelly,” he said, adding, “And the air has been cleared.”

On Twitter, Mr. Trump wrote that Mr. Ailes “is a great guy & assures me that ‘Trump’ will be treated fairly on @FoxNews. His word is always good!” …

Thank goodness that is the end to anymore controversies involving Donald Trump. (Sarcasm.)

Hillary Rodham Clinton, seeking to link Mr. Trump to the rest of the Republican field, said Mr. Trump’s language reflected broader thinking among the Republican candidates.

“While what Donald Trump said about Megyn Kelly is outrageous; what the rest of the Republicans are saying about all women is also outrageous,” Mrs. Clinton said…

Like what? Name one outrageous thing any other Republican has said about women. Oh, that’s right. There are no examples. But it sounded good. And that’s good enough for Hillary.

    Megyn Kelly special orders exploding political pie, surprised it blew up in her face.

    Of all the hot-button domestic and international questions to be asked, befitting a presidential candidate who would face such issues, Megyn Kelly, who supposedly is a lawyer, digs deep into her 5th grade class president portfolio to ask Donald Trump about some silly spat he’s had with people who happen to have vaginas.
    She had weeks to prepare and THAT made the cut? Seriously? -Wanted to throw Donald Trump off his game, and that made the cut?
    Looks like we got a good look at the democrat “Mitt Romney contraception” questions a little bit early. Now you all know why we can’t stand these people, and believe they are all (democrats / Republicans) are on the same team.

    -Iran nuclear deal. Nope.
    -Syria. Nope.
    -Russian aggression. Nope.
    -North Korean nuclear aggression. Nope.
    -China. Nope.
    -Immigration. Nope.
    -Student debt. Nope.
    -National debt. Nope.
    -Tax code. Nope.
    -Police misconduct. Nope.
    -Racial unrest. Nope.
    -IRS scandals. Nope.
    -Hillary Clinton disobeying her own policies. Nope.

    She said she would not respond directly to any of Mr. Trump’s numerous insults and disparaging statements about her.

    Duh! –ya’ think? Really? After getting her rear-end handed to her in laughing fashion, she has decided she doesn’t want any more? –I’m sure the more competent lawyers at FoxNews probably told her to leave it alone, otherwise she is going to get it worse.
