From VARIETY to the BOSTON GLOBE to CNN,
media outlets scrambled over one another yesterday,
blaring the results of Carrie Fisher's autopsy report months after the actress' death ...
even though the family wanted some semblance of respect and courtesy paid to Carrie.
Did the world need to know this?
The poor woman is dead. Let her rest in peace.
There is a game show host in the White House,
the senate is trying to kick 24 million people off healthcare
and this is what makes the news?
Then, there is Megyn Kelly giving air time to Alex Jones, a “conspiracy-spewing” radio host,
whose claim that no children were killed at Sandy Hook Elementary
is especially troubling since she hosts the Promise Champions Gala,
an annual event for the Sandy Hook Promise Foundation,
a nonprofit gun violence prevention group founded
by family members of some of the Sandy Hook shooting victims.
Giving air time to such a borderline personality only gives him legitimacy.
What was Megyn Kelly thinking?
Of ratings, of course.
