Megyn Kelly: Female Journalists 'Don't Need' Chuck Todd's Help

By    |   Wednesday, 08 Apr 2015 10:54 PM

Republican presidential candidate Rand Paul, a day after announcing his presidential candidacy, came under fire Wednesday from NBC's Chuck Todd for arguing with NBC's Savannah Guthrie, but Fox News Channel's Megyn Kelly said women journalists don't need Todd's help.

In an interview with Paul on Wednesday's "The Kelly File," Kelly noted that "Meet the Press" host Chuck Todd and The Guardian newspaper had accused Paul of attacking female interviewers.

Kelly agreed with Paul that he treats men and women equally and said he has a right to push back against tough interviewers.

"I, as a female reporter, will say to Chuck Todd and The Guardian: We don't need your help. Savannah Guthrie doesn't need your help. [CNBC's] Kelly Evans doesn't need your help," Megyn Kelly said. "So, these male commentators can butt out. We can give as good as we get."

Kelly did tell Paul he needs to be less thin-skinned with the press because it will only get worse as the campaign wears on.

"There's a real question about whether you're pulling this trigger too early in these interviews and whether you're alienating people by being too defensive," Kelly said.
