While some may disagree with Megyn Kelly over President Donald Trump, there’s no denying she’s on the money in calling out Lawrence O’Donnell for proudly admitting the anti-Trump bias on his network, MSNBC.

Kelly’s assessment: “Media is so broken.”

“Quite an admission from ⁦@Lawrence⁩: “on MSNBC there will be no one defending [Trump.]” “Bc we don’t bring on liars,” he adds. So anyone who defends Trump is a liar, & MSNBC will never offer any defense for anything Trump does. Media is so broken,” she tweeted.

Kelly linked to a Daily Beast article on O’Donnell blasting CNN on “The Al Franken Podcast” for not hating Trump enough — how’s that for rich?

“One-third of the people on their payroll love Trump. So you’re guaranteed on any hour of CNN to, minimum one-third of the programming will be supportive of Trump—someone on their payroll saying, ‘Here’s why Trump’s right,’” O’Donnell declared.

“That’s one of the reasons why Trump kind of wants you to watch CNN instead of MSNBC,” he added. “Because he knows on MSNBC there will be no one defending him. Because we don’t bring on liars. I don’t bring on a liar. I won’t do that.”

That’s quite a statement, considering MSNBC features Al Sharpton and Joy Reid.

In effect, both networks all but dedicate 24/7 coverage to destroying Donald Trump, so it’s not clear why O’Donnell thinks a third of the coverage on CNN is supportive of the president. The network has taken to occasionally adding a pro-Trump pundit to a panel, but it’s nowhere near the level he alleges.

Interestingly, when a social media user replied to Kelly’s tweet saying it’s too bad she and Trump don’t get along because they are both fighting the good fight, the television personality replied: “We get along fine. That other stuff is ancient history.”

Another social media user shared an interesting observation that on Fox News, hosts such as Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham actively seek out those who see things in a different manner.

Here’s a sampling of other responses from Twitter:
