John Stossel: Megyn Kelly On Media Bias
Megyn Kelly is well known for working at Fox News & NBC. Now she’s her own boss, and feels free to call out bias wherever she sees it.
Today, big media has an agenda. It’s not just, “give the news.” Fox News and a few others spin right. Almost everyone else spins left. That’s why I’m glad we have independent journalists like Megyn Kelly. We worked together at Fox, and then she went to NBC. She felt pressure from her bosses to stick to a certain agenda. Not pleasing the network got her fired from NBC. Now she has her own podcast, The Megyn Kelly Show. “I’m totally uncancellable,” she tells me. “That was my only mission in coming back into our business. I didn’t want a corporate overlord.”

Severed pig’s head leads to investigation of possible hate crime
Parkland County, Alta. (from Parkland RCMP)
On Oct. 16, 2022, at approximately 10 a.m., Parkland RCMP received a report of a severed pig’s head that had been left on the rainbow Pride crosswalk painted at Graminia School in Parkland County.
The pig is believed to be a domesticated pig. Its head was severed with a bladed instrument. Its placement in the center of the crosswalk appears to have been intentional and designed to disturb students, staff and parents. Due to these circumstances, investigators are treating this incident as a possible hate crime targeted at the school, which has a Gay-Straight Alliance.
“An unsophisticated person might think this was a prank. An objective viewer would see it as highly intolerant and provocative,” says Staff Sergeant Ian Gillan of Parkland RCMP.
Parkland RCMP are seeking any information that may assist the investigation. In particular, police are seeking the following information:
- Any suspicious activity in the area between the evening of Oct. 15, 2022, to the late morning of Oct. 16, 2022
- Information pertaining to recently missing or mutilated pigs
- Butchers and meat packers who recently sold, or had a pig’s head stolen, are also asked to contact Parkland RCMP
The RCMP encourages all victims and witnesses to report any hate-motivated crime or incident to their local police of jurisdiction. Reporting hate-motivated incidents, no matter how minor they may seem, can help Police better target crime prevention efforts in the communities. It can also help identify trends and prevent a possible escalation towards violence.
If you can provide information regarding this incident, please contact the Parkland RCMP at 825-220-2000. If you want to remain anonymous, you can contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS), online at www.P3Tips.com or by using the “P3 Tips” app available through the Apple App or Google Play Store.
