Sirius XM podcast host and independent journalist Megyn Kelly blasted the people who were already attempting to politicize the weekend mass shooting in Buffalo, New York, that left 10 dead.
During Monday’s episode of The Megyn Kelly Show, the host described the timeline of events and expressed her sympathy for the victims and their families and friends – and she noted that her policy, like the policy adopted by The Daily Wire, was to avoid naming the suspects in mass shootings whenever possible in order to deny them the notoriety they sought.
“We will not be naming the shooter on this program, consistent with our policy of not naming mass shooters, who in part are out for infamy and we decline to help. He’s pleaded not guilty, but he also left behind a trove of information, including a 180-page manifesto filled with racist and antisemitic commentary,” she said. “The shooter was white. Detailing how and why he picked his target.”
Kelly then noted that a number had attempted to pin at least a portion of the blame for the shooting on her friend and former colleague, Fox News host Tucker Carlson. They argued that because he has addressed the topic of “white replacement theory” on his show, “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” he is in some way responsible for the alleged shooter’s focus on that.
“Some in the media had been quick to point fingers and even place blame on our friend and very popular Fox News host, Tucker Carlson. It’s outrageous. It’s wrong, both factually and morally,” Kelly said.
“Why do we have to go to that place immediately on these stories. Why can’t we spend two f***ing minutes mourning the people who are dead and trying to understand that we have insane people in this country? We have lunatics. It’s a huge country!” she continued.
