    Trump seems to think Kelly is despicable and biased. I think her bias is real. What do you believe?

    Trump would never like any intelligent woman who stood up to him or questioned his comments. His dislike of her is simply his general view on women.

    Her bias is real, and based on the way he treats her. So is his (towards her). And if he's made the remarks that have been attributed to him, then his bias towards women is unacceptable.

    I am no Trump fan but the report I read the other day said he has more women executives then men.

    Megan has shown no bias against him but she has shown a tendency to be a little Jerry Springer

    Did he pay women executives as much as men in comparable positions?

    That's probably a better description than "bias." She's asked him some hard questions; he's shouting "bias" because he doesn't like them.

    Have you stopped beating your wife?

    That is a hard question. It puts someone on the spot. It is only designed to make someone look bad. Jerry Springer.

    My point is saying she asked some hard questions can make her look innocent but she is not. Saying "hard questions" does nothing to give a good description of what she has done.

    No reason Trump should let up on the press. Are they letting up on him?

    Her questions about remarks he's made towards women are not equivalent to "have you stopped beating your wife." Either he's referred to women as "bimbos," or he hasn't. And posting a re-tweet of someone calling Megyn Kelly a bimbo is just as bad as calling her a bimbo himself.

    Because of the way he's reacted negatively towards her, that's why I initially posted that she has some bias towards him (a natural response to his negativity towards her). Asking him those questions fits more with what you described as Jerry Springer, and I agree with that.

    Yea its the same thing. The reason is they are not policy issues, its all gutter talk, and its sole purpose was to get ratings and make Trump look bad, rather than to deal with the issues. Nothing more than Jerry Springer or National Enquirer. Things like that just cheapen these debates.

    I don't think she is biased against Trump. But if she is, it would be a welcome counterweight to the fawning worship that Hannity, Bolling, and others give Trump on a daily basis.

    I typically watch old TV shows on DVD at night (i.e. working through the Mission Impossible series right now) and when the episode is over I flick through the news channels. I am shocked and astounded at how often Trump is on Hannity's show. I also listen to the news channels on XM satellite radio at work and I hear the same Trump admiration.

    For goodness sakes, on Super Tuesday, as the candidates queued up to give their victory and concession speeches, they didn't even show Bernie Sanders, they showed microphones on an empty stage at Trump's HQ. Typically, they record any speeches they can't show live but there was no Sanders speech that night, at least on CNN and for as long as I was watching.

    Hannity has everyone on his show. He has them al on as often as they will come.

    C'mon, really? Hannity is a Trump sycophant!

    I saw a fake Trump town hall on Hannity one night. It was on the Hannity set and had about 20 audience members.

    No he's not. He is a party loyalist. Trump is the front runner and he badly wants shrillary beaten. So he is willing to vote for and promote Trump, for that reason, even if you are not.

    However, he would gladly have people on both sides of the isle on his program. He has always been that way. I find your characterization of him disingenuous.

    By the way I have not watched Hannity in a couple of years.

    From the article you posted:

    "Editor’s Note: This is an opinion piece. Sean Hannity’s official position is that he gives access to all candidates on his radio and television shows and that he will support the GOP nominee, whomever that may be. Hannity has not endorsed Donald Trump as the Republican nominee for president."


    I rest my case.

    Well, if the disclaimer had said this:

    Sean Hannity’s official position is that he gives EQUAL access to all candidates on his radio and television shows

    maybe there would be a valid point.

    Really? That's all you got? Sometimes you don't know when to give it up.

    You say you haven't watched Hannity in years. I tell you EVERY time I see a snippet of his show, he's got Donald Trump on. Yet you say he would gladly have people on both sides of the aisle on his program. So why is it I never see anyone else?
