Megyn Kelly’s Show Taken Off Air Because of Russians’ Love for Her

Summary of Disinformation

The program of Megyn Kelly, our favorite American TV anchor, is being taken off the air. She was fired on a completely contrived pretext — for something she did not say about the color of Halloween masks. Something like ‘if a black person can wear a white mask, why then can’t a white person wear a black mask?’ Or, maybe the opposite. However, it doesn’t matter. I am sure that the true reason is our love for her.

Disproof

NBC said the anchor would no longer host the “Megyn Kelly Today” after she made racially insensitive comments during the October 25 edition of her show.

While Kelly's remarks caused outrage, neither her critics nor NBC mentioned her stance toward Russia. Kelly has since apologized for the racially-tinged comments. Further debunking by the Polygraph.
