Megyn Kelly Asks Representative Of Pro-Voter ID Group About Boycotts

Yesterday, a proposed boycott by Democratic officials successfully caused Coca-Cola to stop supporting the American Legislative Exchange Council, or ALEC. The issues with ALEC involve its support of voter ID laws which many on the left view as an attempt to disenfranchise minority voters. Today, a spokeswoman from ALEC, Kaitlyn Buss, spoke to Megyn Kelly about the boycott and the “factually inaccurate” claims that her group was from the “extreme right.”

What was interesting in the video was that Kelly seemed to be trying very hard to get a rise out of Buss, continuously asking her how she felt about those calling for a boycott. However, Buss seemed to be steadfastly sticking to uncontroversial comments about how her group is “nonpartisan.” Eventually, with Buss remaining levelheaded, Kelly decided to play a clip from an old interview about an unrelated boycott in which Mark Stevens, a Rush Limbaugh advertiser, accused those boycotting the talk show host of “terrorism.” When Kelly asked if Buss had heard of anything like that in the current situation, Buss simply began talking about how this “is not about politics.”

Come on, Kaitlyn. That’s not how you do a cable news segment! You’re supposed to be ranting and raving like an idiot. Duh!
