I wrote the other day that Megyn Kelly was one of the only Conservative pundits who thought Trey Gowdy's Benghazi hearing was successful. And on Friday night, she continued her beliefs by attacking the media for using their eyes and ears instead of their hearts, and awarded Hillary Clinton the victory.

She's focused on an email which she says proves that Hillary knew all along a video was the cause of the attacks in Benghazi. But America already knows all about these issues since they were fully investigated by eight hearings, with the help of endless hours of Fox News fearmongering the attack to tear down Hillary Clinton.

Megyn Kelly called out media outlets for crowning Hillary Clinton the undisputed victor following the Republican-led Benghazi hearing on Thursday while overlooking a "bombshell" email to the Egyptian prime minister.

Kelly played clips of Clinton and other administration officials repeating a talking point that the Sept. 11, 2012 attack was the result of extremists hijacking a protest of an anti-Islam video that had sparked other protests in the region."To watch most of the media you would think we never saw that email," Kelly said. "To the contrary, the messaging was 'She won, it's over, move on.'"

Kelly then played a barrage of clips showing the favorable press coverage..

The Benghazi Committee has spent almost five million dollars to come up with one email that has nothing to do with the actual attacks, nor does it show any malfeasance on her part for allowing the attacks to take place.
