#HallofShame | Megyn Kelly Talks Equality, But The Kelly File Doesn’t Show It


Earlier this week, Megyn Kelly had an interesting exchange with Newt Gingrich. Gingrich dismissed Kelly’s questions about whether Donald Trump is a sexual predator, telling her she was “fascinated with sex,” to which Kelly calmly replied, “I’m not fascinated by sex, but I am fascinated by the protection of women…”

While we commend Kelly for standing up to voice concerns important to women around the country, her show has again failed to actually include women commentators. The latest Who Talks? data finds The Kelly File still among the lowest ranking of the six cable news shows when it came to gender balance. For the week of October 17–21, The Kelly File’s coverage of the presidential election only managed to include commentary by women 19% of the time.

Let The Kelly File know that sound bites are not enough. It’s who you share your platform with that counts.
