‘Bravo Megyn Kelly’: Twitter Applauds Ex-Fox News Host For Calling Out Bill O’Reilly
While her recent shows have mostly consisted of entertainment news and fluff pieces, NBC’s Megyn Kelly came out swinging this morning by diving into a powerful monologue in which she called out Bill O’Reilly and Fox News over sexual harassment.
Twitter’s reaction to Kelly slamming her former colleague and the network she once worked for was one mostly of applause. Many media figures pointed out that Kelly’s segment on O’Reilly was the Kelly they hoped to see — one focused on important political and culture issues, rather than the dancing morning talk show host she has become.
Below are a number of Twitter’s top responses to Kelly’s tell-all against Fox News and the former king of cable news:

This is the Megyn Kelly that should be on the air every morning–the one who became a star. https://t.co/0s7E65KyoS

I’d 100% spend an hour watching Megyn Kelly fight for what she believes in, even if I don’t always agree, than see her push fluff.

That was the “old” Megyn Kelly in that interview, wasn’t it? Tough subject, interesting discussion.

Megyn Kelly’s new career as a palate cleanser better have ended with that clip. She’s a social/political commentator. Can’t run from destiny

Bravo to Megyn and all the women everywhere shining a light on the misogynistic ugliness that has been going on for far too long. https://t.co/uxXuYAXqR1

There have been a lot of critiques about Megyn Kelly — many justified, many unfair. But I think pieces like this is where she’s at her best. https://t.co/ZAciWYCRk9

The Megyn Kelly that addressed this issue in the first person on “Today” likely a lot closer to the one that NBC thought it was hiring. https://t.co/Xaw96F6C2K
