Accuracy in Media

Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly, who has been under attack from GOP front-runner Donald Trump ever since the Republican debate a few weeks ago, returned from vacation and scored her highest ratings of the year.

Kelly averaged 3.096 million total viewers and 603,000 in the 25-54 demo—which ranked second in all of cable news—trailing only The O’Reilly Factor, which averaged 3.349 million total viewers and 631,000 in the demo.

Trump picked up right where he left off before Kelly’s scheduled vacation by issuing a series of tweets criticizing her for her performance Monday night.

Despite Trump’s bluster, Kelly isn’t going anywhere. She is a bona fide star on Fox News and has posted strong ratings ever since her show debuted nearly two years ago, strengthening the network’s grip as the No. 1 cable news network.

Instead of criticizing Kelly, Trump should thank her for preparing him for future debates with less friendly moderators who undoubtedly will ask much tougher questions than she did.
