Chris Matthews: ‘I Think Megyn Kelly’s Great’

It’s rare to see anyone on Fox News or MSNBC complimenting each other, but on Morning Joe today, Chris Matthews gave an unqualified statement of praise for Megyn Kelly over her tough interview with Dick Cheney over his hypocrisy on the current crisis in Iraq, given his past musings about the war the Bush administration started there.

Matthews mocked Cheney… er, sorry, Cheeneey, for being generally “awful” before saying, “I think Megyn Kelly’s great.” He praised her for when she called out Karl Rove on 2012 election night and said, “She keeps earning her spurs as a journalist.”

Matthews said Cheney expected to go on Fox and receive a big kiss, but Kelly actually held his feet to the fire. During the interview, Kelly told Cheney, “Time and time again, history has proven that you got it wrong as well in Iraq, sir.”
