“There are so many stories that we’re not covering and to take time with this … is not journalism.”
On Monday, Megyn Kelly used her segment on The Today Show to call out Jane Fonda for not wanting to discuss her experience with plastic surgery.
So on Tuesday, Ann Curry addressed Kelly’s segment when she was guest co-hosting on The View.
“Journalists are not supposed to be the story,” Curry said.
“We’re supposed to be humble. We’re supposed to use whatever time we’re given to shine a light on other stories,” she continued. “There are so many stories that we’re not covering, and to take time with this … is not journalism.”
“Not only are we living in a time, but also we’re witnessing a certain amount of meanness … which we should not tolerate,” Curry said. “In general, about everything, we are better than this.”
View co-host Joy Behar also said Fonda should have asked Kelly, “And how much work have you had, bitch?”
A few minutes later, Behar apologized for calling Kelly a bitch. “I want to apologize to Megyn Kelly, I didn’t mean to call her a bitch. I like her actually. I’ve met her at parties and I like her. I just think she’s struggling for a persona … she doesn’t know who she is, and that’s the problem.”
