Megyn Kelly Berates Producers On-Air For Cutting Away To Ferguson Video

Fox News host Megyn Kelly was furious on Tuesday night when producers interrupted her conversation about the beheading of kidnapped journalist James Foley with video of breaking coverage of Ferguson, Mo.

Kelly was discussing Foley’s tragic death at the hands of terrorist group ISIS with Fox contributor Pete Hegseth when the full-screen video of Ferguson ran. Kelly abruptly paused the conversation to vent at her producers.

“Hold on. I realize — can, just, just — I realize something’s happening in Ferguson, but we’re talking about something important here, so can you at least split-screen the video?” she said.

Then, staring directly at the camera, Kelly continued to express her frustration.

“I realize — look, the protesters and the police are clashing again, alright? They’re clashing again. But we’re talking about the dead, the death of an American, of an American who was beheaded, and Pete deserves his say.”
