FOX News Channel’s Megyn Kelly joined Seth Meyers on “Late Night” Thursday and discussed her June interview with Dick Cheney in which she asked the former veep, “What do you say, to those who say, that you were so wrong, about so much, at the expense of so many,” following his op-ed with his daughter Lynn Cheney for the Wall Street Journal criticizing President Obama’s foreign policy in Iraq.
“That is what I do for a living,” Kelly told Meyers. ”It got a lot of attention and it was interesting because he, Liz Cheney and Lynn Cheney went on a political roundtable afterward and Mike Allen said, ‘Oh, you know Megyn Kelly at FOX News, no enemy to you, called you out in this fashion.’ And Mrs. Cheney said, ‘Of course she did. That is what journalists are expected to do.’ I really appreciated her saying that and I said on my own show, he is right, I’m not an enemy to Dick Cheney and I’m not a friend to Dick Cheney. I’m a journalist who has to ask tough questions and he came in and answered them.”
