KELLY: In this country in the ’50s and ’60s there were huge numbers of people that believed that the children of interracial marriages were biologically inferior and that is why it was illegal for blacks and whites to marry in some states in the country up until 1967. And they said it was science and fact if you were the child of a black father and white mother or vice versa you were inferior and not set up for success. Tell that to Barack Obama.
This is just priceless!

The trouble is that Megyn Kelly is just as much as a hypocrite as the pundits she's taking to task, because she's only doing it when it benefits a group that she's a part of. Just like when Kelly demonized maternity leave until she because pregnant and needed it herself
The outrage about those studies is the problem with being ethnocentric, it all depends on what group you identify with
Megyn Kelly was doing the exact same thing as those other pudits did from the opposite side, she objects when somethign impacts a group of which she is a member, but has no problem demonizing other groups of which she is not a member.
Another example of "with friends like these who needs enemas?" that Megyn Kelly shows is the part about Women in Combat.
Since she won't ever want to join the military, she doesn't care about others that do since it doesn't affect her. But to open the possibility that her daughter might become eligible for the draft because of women's right to serve in the military then the outrage begins because then it might affect her no matter what equal rights are for.
It's not about a stand on principle or fairness, it's what is best for Megyn Kelly to drive up the ratings with controversy, or else why pick different positions one time and others the next?
Kelly didn't believe that the GOP was waging a "War on Women" and even defended Limbaugh when he mocked it.
"Kelly was in mocking mode as she reported on Billie Jean King's efforts to link up with the Democrats on behalf of women's rights. Kelly framed the Fox propaganda message with the question of whether this is a war on women or a case for fundraising on women. Kelly guffawed at her own humor as she asked Monica Crowley if she, as a Republican, is waging war on herself. After Crowley responded that there is no war, Kelly chortled as she asked if Republicans hate women. Crowley accused the left of making up this "theme."
Which also is just another example of since Megyn doesn't need birth control, it doesn't affect her and she doesn't care about the issue when others do need it.
