While we’re on the subject of pretty blondes employed by Faux News, yesterday Megan Kelly interviewed an unidentified police officer who gave her “the dirt” on Freddie Gray: Megan Kelly lets anonymous cop call Freddie Gray a snitch and ‘guess’ that drugs caused arrest. (Raw Story)
Excerpt from the Raw Story article:
Fox News’ Megyn Kelly protected the identity of a guest claiming to be a Baltimore police officer who then smeared 25-year-old Freddie Gray — the unarmed black man whose death touched off the latest round of protests regarding police use of force — by painting him as a “snitch” for the department.
The guest also said he “guessed” that Gray was taken in for dealing drugs, even though police officially issued him a summons for possessing a switchblade — which turned out to be a knife that Gray was allowed to carry under state law.
Check out the video of Kelly interviewing the anonymous Baltimore police officer below the fold.
NOTE: Megyn Kelly said that the unidentified officer, “who went by the pseudonym ‘Mike,’ had asked for his identity to be concealed out of concern for his safety. But instead of challenging the officer for his uncorroborated claims just hours after six of his fellow officers were indicted in connection with Gray’s death, she responded, ‘That’s interesting. That’s new information I had not yet heard.’”
