Kelly is a well known attorney and usually claims to be an attorney rather than a journalist. There had been a number of articles that Rupert Murdoch
was pushing Roger Ailes to use this debate to take out the Donald.
She is very good at what she does, but on occasion her self-esteem is too high and her arrogance gets her into trouble with people she interviews.
But on other occasions her work is a revelation. I wasn't in the States at the time, but a friend had recorded and played for me her interview with
Suzanne Somers on alternative medical therapies and it was so remarkable because she clearly was not the usual spokesperson for BigPharma.
All that being said in watching the U.S. debate, I felt Kelly had received the memo from Rupert Murdoch and was doing her best to skewer the Donald.
If that was her brief, she did remarkably well. But for anyone who is on board with Trump-as-saviour, she has now become the whore-of-babylon.
My problem with the theatrical event was that it was not a debate. The moderators easily spoke for one-third of the allotted time. It was very
poorly constructed and conceived of as a debate.
I am more interested in which persons behind the scenes decided that it was Rand Paul's job to reveal Chris Christie as a brawling, frothing enemy of
the Bill of Rights willing to play any and all emotional cards. If anyone lost miserably, it was Chris Christie, and hearing the pundits reading
their scripts that he bested Rand Paul helps to underline that there is little difference between journalism today and prostitution.
Megyn Kelly will survive and thrive. More moderates and liberals will watch her show. And when the time comes that Donald Trump turns into Ross
Pierot people will recall fondly that she was the knight who first skewered the dragon of Donald Trump.
The Canadian debate was narcoleptic by comparison.
