(CNN)“There is no question the media represented it as so much worse than it actually was.”
That’s Megyn Kelly, the former Fox News and, briefly, NBC anchor, on the January 6 riot at the US Capitol.
Yup, that’s what she said. (Kelly made the comments on her podcast — in an interview with a comedian named Chrissie Mayr: “I was there and anybody who was there on the 6th is, like, blown away by how, like, inaccurate the media coverage is,” Mayr claimed on the podcast.)
Well, here’s the thing: Everyone is entitled to their own opinions but not their own facts. And the facts of what happened January 6 at the Capitol are indisputable.
1. More than 500 people have been charged for their roles in the Capitol riot.
2. A total of 140 police officers were injured trying to deal with the insurrectionists.
3. Five people died in the riot.
How then, exactly, did the media cast the 1/6 riot as “so much worse than it actually was?” Was the body count of dead and injured not high enough for Kelly? Did she need more videos of rioters attacking the police with, well, just about anythin
The Point: Megyn Kelly is dead wrong about January 6
