Fox News reporter Megyn Kelly attacks Jenny McCarthy

Megyn Kelly Rips Apart Jenny McCarthy

Autism activist and vaccine opponent, Jenny McCarthy, is doing a 180 on her views on vaccines.

McCarthy claims she's pro-vaccine, but she's cited them, specifically the toxins that some of them contain, as the cause of her son's own autism.

Fox News host Megyn Kelly and contributor Dana Loesch were shocked by McCarthy's sudden change and spoke passionately about the effect her original preachings as well as her stance reversal is having.

'If you're not against vaccinations you don't say things like, well, if we're going to stay in line for autism or measles we'll stay in line for measles because you're presupposing that all vaccinations are triggering autism which - you know, you're entitled to our own opinion but not your own set of facts! Science is disputing this. So this is a really serious issue and, Megyn, I know you have little ones. I have kids as well I don't want to be looked as a bad mother if there's junk science that comes out one day to the next about vaccinations. All I know, is that when I have a question about vaccination schedules I'll go to my pediatrician who has studied this!"

Kelly also noted that most of McCarthy's opposition is to the toxins in vaccines, but pointed out that McCarthy doesn't have a problem with some other toxins, like Botox and e-cigarettes.

'This is the same woman promoting e-cigarettes. You're inhaling nicotine into your body, if you want to talk about toxins! She's a big supporter of getting botox. Those are one of the most deadliest things you can inject in your body. She's for those toxins so I'm not sure where she draws the line on that. You're right. she has a position of influence and it is wrong,' Loesch says.

Kelly says McCarthy is only making pediatricians' jobs harder. 'She has such a high-profile,' Kelly said. 'She raised a lot of people's fears about this!'

Yep. And coffee, and chocolate.

And Susan - it is not the exact same thing, but it is on the same parallel.

The "news" - and I mean ALL of the stations, are soooo desperate to report bad things that they report conjecture as fact, and contradict themselves the very next day.

This all presumes that anybody takes anything Jenny McCarthy says seriously. If you do, then you have bigger problems than a vaccine.

McCarthy is only known for two things, and neither one is her intelligence. EVERY study has shown her beliefs on vaccines are false, but she so desperately wants something external to blame for he child's autism that even overwhelming evidence and proof are not sufficient to change her mind.

Since when is a spirited disagreement an attack? Kelly just took issue with Jenneys former
stance and present change of opinion.

Attack? I watched this video expecting to see Megyn Kelly loose it during an interview with Jenny McCarthy. Kelly is usually level headed, and tells it like it is. When a guest, contradicts themselves or makes an outrageous statement, she will call them out with very critical, yet accurate statements. What the "attack" turned out to be was Kelly and a guest discussing McCarthy's statements on vaccinations. Kelly, like any good reporter, simply pointed out the hypocrisy of objecting to toxins in vaccines while she supports E-cigarettes and Botox. She also pointed out that McCarthy, although stating many other possible reasons autism and that she is now supposedly pro-vaccine, still maintains that she believes the toxins in vaccines play a part as a trigger. Kelly points out that her celebrity status as a parent of a child with autism leads confused parents to ignore medical studies and opt out of the vaccinations that she now supposedly supports.

There is no "attack" here, but rather, good, tell it like it is reporting.

But then again, maybe there is an attack...on Megyn Kelly for daring to be critical in the face of hypocrisy!
