In a rapidly intensifying back-and-forth between Fox News Channel and the campaign of Republican frontrunner Donald Trump, the network Tuesday night accused Trump's campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski of threatening FNC host and debate moderator Megyn Kelly.
In a statement, a Fox News spokesperson said "in a call on Saturday with a Fox News executive, Lewandowski stated that Megyn had a 'rough couple of days after that last debate' and he 'would hate to have her go through that again.' Lewandowski was warned not to level any more threats, but he continued to do so. We can't give in to terrorizations toward any of our employees."

Never watched her since that debate where she was way out of order.
Why watch her anyway and add to her ratings which in turn adds to her already massive ego?
Hell she was not much of a lawyer, not much of anything , but does like to dress and act slutty.
The media have become megaphone hachet men for the beliefs of their owners and manipulators and their targets have typically had no recourse.....except Trump. This is why politicians have historically kowtoweÄ to those like Ailes.
The media demands servitude from politicians regardless of the antagonism from provocateurs in their ranks. Trump gave them the middle finger only after they gave Trump the middle finger and they don’t like it.
Thank-you, well said!
Why is doing this?
He knows we love it when he picks on the media while simulatanously stepping over him.
Trump's antagonism toward the media makes them mad and do dumb things that Trump takes advantage of watch its still early in the morning. Media folk will be saying stupid things all day now.
No threat, fox news in on the rope’s and fading fast!!
I don’t see any threat, baby megmeg.
Not to mention Marie Osmond and William Devane!
Excellent observations. This is a huge financial disaster for Fox. Trump id the master at this. Kelly is now a liability to Fox.
Why isn`t the Tony Perkins endorsement of Cruz on the Front page as a sticky?
The answer is obvious, the powers that be here dont want this huge news given any respect.
Its a much bigger deal than the Falwell endorsement, but FR doesn`t want this huge news in a prominent spot on front page....so enough with the you like Cruz also nonsense
“Sounds the other way around to me Trump can dish it out but can ât take it. So we just went through seven years of a president who ridiculed and denigrated anyone who disagreed with him and now you want to elect another guy just like him.”
You are missing the main point.
Obama ridiculed and denigrated anyone who disagreed with him *with the backing of the media cartel*.
Trump ridicules and denigrates *the media cartel* and those who disagree with him. Those who disagree with him generally have the backing of the media cartel.
It is all the difference in the world.
Well which is it? Trump the cry baby or Trump the terrorizationist? They’re throwing out whatever sticks.
“Trump is like the roadrunner. He is one step ahead of Wiley Coyote.”
That is a great image! Quite clever
Then you would have to ignore what Brett said their plan was. He specifically they were prepared to escort Trump from the stage. No such statement was made about any of the other candidates. If you remember Brett led off with the loyalty oath demand with the express purpose of embarrassing Trump. Consider now how many republican figures have sworn they would not vote forTrump if he wins the nomination.
You’re really quite a funny man. Keep drinking your beer, gaze at the sky and attempt to appear above all others here, you’ve got it nailed down.
Your bias against Trump disallows you to see the reality. Perhaps you thought the query to Cruz regarding the bible, was a fair and professional question to ask. I didn’t, but since you’re all about how professional the moderators are, you may believe that was a good question - you know, just to get the candidate to defend their ‘own words’.
Fox argues that Trump shouldn’t insult Megyn Kelly because she’s a woman. They actually call him out on it.
So is Megyn exempt from criticism or insults because she’s female? Thereby making her a “second class citizen” that she argues she isn’t?
What’s Ailes’s game?
What’s a ‘Megyn’?
