Fox News Calls WikiLeaks A “Left-Wing Website”

To her credit, Megyn Kelly corrected the record.

On her America Live show yesterday (12/9/10), Megyn Kelly was apparently reading a scripted introduction when she said, “This all started when the left-wing website WikiLeaks…” Kelly paused and added, obviously in her own words, “I don’t know that you can call WikiLeaks left wing. It’s a website that discloses confidential and secret documents that has been provided by a leaker.”

Good on her. But it was obviously Fox News’ intent to put forward this falsehood.

It’s worth noting that both Sean Hannity and Bill O’Reilly took little to no interest in the previous WikiLeaks releases. But now the two are outraged, outraged, I tell you. read more
