Megyn Kelly Apologizes for Guest Who Called Tucker Carlson a ‘Bow-tyin’ White Boy’

At the end of her show today, Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly apologized for FNC analyst Jehmu Greene who, during a debate about democratic Massachusetts senate candidate Elizabeth Warren, referred to Tucker Carlson as a a “bow-tyin’ white boy.” Greene and Carlson were going at it over how Warren’s claims of Cherokee ancestry have become a campaign issue. Greene, a democratic strategist, said, “To question this woman on her qualifications is going to be something that does appeal to folks like you, voters like you bow-tyin’ white boys, but at the end of the day….”

“Hey, hey, hey,” Tucker jumped in, “You can use name-calling all you like, but you’re ignoring the truth.” Carlson was known for donning bow ties during his CNN days. Not so much anymore. But he is white, and not at all Cherokee.

Is Fox News Moving Left?

Politico’s Keach Hagey took the temperature of conservative Americans at CPAC last week, asking them if their favorite channel had changed.

“I’ve gone from all Fox to no Fox, and replaced it with CNN, which I think right now is giving me a much fairer analysis of what’s going on,” says Virginia radio talk show host John Fredericks. “I feel they’ve lost that independent conservative mantra that had drove people like me to them.”

Since Fox News founder Roger Ailes announced a “course correction” last Fall, the network has hired liberal activist Sally Kohn and may be testing the waters for a Web show fronted by liberal commentator Jehmu Greene. And these loyal viewers have complained it’s not a course they like. From Politico:

“Something is happening at Fox News,” wrote one Red State blogger last month. “More often these days I hear the language of the Left entering their news programs. Conservative points of view are becoming more rare on Fox and/or treated with scorn…it may not be admitted, but I believe the left’s boycott of Fox is having an effect.”

But Fordham University media professor Paul Levinson says at the end of the day it’s about ratings. While Fox News still has more viewers combined than its competitors, ratings were down in 2011, while MSNBC and CNN were up. “It’s a smart move to get slightly less conservative and draw in some people in the middle and slightly to the left. If they just stuck to their staunch conservative guns, they wouldn’t go anywhere.” So we’re putting it to you:
