Megyn Kelly and the
Sandberg Head Shaker

American Thinker, by Richard F. Miniter

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 4/15/2014 9:16:05 AM

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

I had high hopes for Kelly, but its obvious she´s not ready for prime time. She´s had the losing end of too many interviews. She looks like a deer caught in the the headlights. Kelly was a junior Washington, D.C. Reporter with a law degree who lucked out on the Fox network. She needs to go back to afternoon TV.

This was the worst "interview" Megyn has ever done. This Sandberg woman clearly has been grooming Kelly to put the warm and fuzzy on her leftist brand of "feminism." Thus, the constant references to "I called you immediately, to.... blah, blah, blah..."
Sandberg´s just another ´my way or the highway´ leftist... and Ladies, please get over yourselves... there´s a whole world out there that thinks you´re just another human... a speck of cosmic dust.

I don´t watch her. She´s used aggressiveness and looks to get ahead but she´s not a conservative. She´s a pretender and every now and then her real beliefs show through as they did in this interview.

Had she been at NBC instead of Fox she would have been on the other side of many more interviews.

Now that she´s hit the big time at Fox news, she wants to be part of the ´in´ crowd and get invited to all the good parties. We´ll see her slide steadily to the left. Sad. I used to enjoy her show.

Bingo! I watched that interview, and wondered what I couldn´t put my finger on....it was EXACTLY like hearing the newly aware feminists of the 1970´s spouting the talking points about poor, poor, pitiful women when I was in college! I remember rolling my eyes then; not much has changed. Oh, and I´m a woman, though not a poor, poor, pitiful one.

Kelly is shallow, no depth there. Really shows her lack of professionalism. She´s defiantly not conservative. She´s more of an O´Reilly, without credentials. Even Greta would have been better in that time slot.
Glad they moved Hannity and his "audience" nonsense out of that time slot, too.

I too was disappointed with that Sandberg interview and agree it was a "head shaker." Usually Megyn Kelly doesn´t allow her guests to spin and Sandberg sure did her share of spin and didn´t answer the direct question about why NOW was not more inclusive. All of that being said, I still think Kelly is one of the best interviewers on TV. She airs stories on her show that are compelling and you will not see on even other Fox shows. She was relentless in the interviews with Ibrahim Cooper from CAIR and never wavered. She received huge compliments from Louis Gohmert when she interviewed him about how well she did her research.

She was the first to report on the horrors the Pelletier family was suffering because of the Boston DCF. Then Mike Huckabee took up he cause. I will continue to watch her show even though that interview was a disappointment. That´s not a bad record considering all the excellent interviews she has done.

I must admit I didn´t see the interview but it strikes me that they cannot see the irony of two very successful women discussing how bad it is for women these days.
Or are they just complaining that at one point or another in their careers they had to do what the (male) boss wanted? Wilkommen to die realwelt.
What are they b*tching about?

I LOVE Megyn´s show. She is tough, aggressive and unlike O´Reilly prevents her guests from spinning. So, when she allowed this babe to spin and regurgitate her nonsense, I was stunned. I kept yelling for Megyn to ask this babe if she would reach out to Palin and Bachman after Megyn let her get away with not answering the questions about conservative women. That is the first time I ever saw Megyn do that and it was obvious she was smitten because the "lean in " babe is COO of FaceBook. Megyn, very, very disappointing.

My DH would watch Megyn recite the alphabet. Over and over and over... he is smitten.

I am not so easily bowled over, so like to watch her when she is making some sense - and not buried alive in her own redundancy - but find it easy to hit the remote when the going gets rough.

Got sick of her morning show, and thought/hoped this one (airs at 6PM in our zone) promised to be better. She also had less time - only an hour - to keep repeating herself and ranting. But alas it was not to be.

Sometimes v. good. A lot of times anger-inducing or just plain boring.

First of all, men have no dog in this fight, so step off.
Secondly, she´s doing what every man in power does - give the good old boys a pass.
Why is she required to go after Sandberg? Because she doesn´t agree with her?

Let´s make a deal - when women are represented at the 50% mark for business and government, then we can begin to have the conversation of context and texture.

Until that day, let´s not pretend the playing field is level. Let´s be thankful there´s a chick for Kelly to even talk to.

Megyn was definitely OFF, impossible to watch most of it once it was clear that Megyn was in over her head with almost
a worshipful manner, like the White House press corp. Yes, that obviously bad. When interviewers are reporting a great tragedy, they act much more important, act to suit the event.
Same goes for the people they interview. Steve Pelley truly looked like he thought he was God when he was in the actual presence of the Pope. Megyn, not so bad with Sandberg, but the sanctity meter had risen, and it was unpleasant.
She is a great interviewer, quiet with good people, talks over the evil people, like that Imam, and rally does ask penetrating
questions, one of the other.
But, now, Megyn must look back at this unfortunate moment
with Sandburg, and pick up the pieces. Honesty IS being a conservative, free market person. She doesn´t have to delate herself any more clearly.
You can really start worrying when she´s plugging her own "line" of both adult and kiddie books, T shirts, and has a conservative comedy side kick on nightly!!!! Also, when she has a closing SIGN crediting her dressmaker.

I agree with the author, I do not understand the appeal of Sandberg. Women should be creating and building their own enterprises.
Every job I have ever had included difficult people and required some type of compromise. At the end of the day the boss has the last say. If you cannot or will not make a compelling enough case to change minds then you have several choices-- comply, move on or or become the boss of your own enterprise.
Sandberg´s claims and techniques only reinforce the stereotypes. Stereotypes ALWAYS do more harm than good.
In this day and age, if you provide a valuable skill or good value product, and are able to market it, most do not care what your gender/race/other special designation is.
Instead of ´lean in´ how about ´step up.´

BTW, telling men they cannot comment because they lack the appropriate body parts is unproductive to an open dialog.

Is there anyone in the world who can tell me what the heck "Lean In" means? I googled for a definition and not one of the hits that came up actually defined the term. That includes an interview with Sandberg.

Looks like just more feminist sloppy thinking

Sandberg suggests that women tend to watch more than participate. They let men do the talking, leading, etc. She suggests women need to sit at the table (as opposed to in the back, along the wall, etc.), speak up/offer suggestions, take/volunteer for leadership roles and do a better job of marketing themselves.
She refers to this type of engagement as leaning in.

Hey, we all have off days... #18 isn´t completely off either. There IS some discrepancy in female representation and pay. The guy who had my job before me had a little more experience in the field but less experience with the company, products and culture. He made 1/3 more than I do for essentially the same job and they also paid for his travel back and forth from Pennsylvania (where he had a house) to California AND paid for his housing here in California too. No, there are still some discrimination, but nothing like the left claims.

#18, you make sweeping generalizations about men. Your comment suggests that employment opportunities should be decided first based on percentages of men and women in society. Why? Sounds like affirmative action quotas and has *zero* to do with education, experience and career motivation on the part of the job applicant on the one hand, and business needs, job requirements, and talent management of the employer.

#27, there is no 1:1 correlation between every job candidate and a particular job salary. As soon as you factor in education, experience, and variations in job requirements, aptitudes, and intangible factors (employee´s business connections or potential for business development, for example) -- in short, a host of other factors, then salaries and *salary ranges* can vary widely based on any combination of these factors. Reducing this to a mere gender issue is a simplistic justification of a perceived wrong and not very convincing.

Not a surprise to me after her first show where she opened the interview with Ted Cruz by asking him what it´s like to be the most hated man in America.

BTW I enjoy reading comments from both men & women on all topics. And I can think of one man in power who doesn´t give the good old boys a pass: the aforementioned Ted Cruz.

If Kelly´s weakness - as it appears to be - is her naivete about what "feminism" really is and who "progressive" feminists really are, we can be sure the Left will be exploiting this weakness to bring her down.

Think harder, Megyn.

Megyn Kelly makes an entertaining program. She hurt B.H. Obama´s numbers during the tragic imposition of Medicaid for all illegal moochers. She did this tirelessly. This is more than enough for me, so I forgive her a few boring days talking about the missing B 777.

I love watching human beauty, and delivered with such irrepressible enthusiasm even more. I wish Kelly a long career.

My 32- year old daughter makes as much or more than her 12 counterparts, male or female. She has been with her current company in the past and last fall was rehired in another part of the US. The catalyst for her success? A previous boss, a man, who appreciated her abilities and work ethic so much that he told her current boss to hire her. The downside? Her love for her job vs her mixed emotions about the long hours and missing her 2 year old son, whose father has taken over the majority of childcare. I think generally speaking, women struggle with this aspect far more than men do. But our daughter and SIL make it work and don´t get hung up on who should be doing what or earning more. And guess what...her biggest supporters are all men, here. Previous boss, current boss, and husband. We need both. =). I´m thrilled that we have these choices...available for men AND women.

Many of the above comments remind me of the constant bickering, blaming one another and accusations against follow conservatives within the Republican Party. The msm can´t get enough of our animosity. Much that I have read here seems to be written by the left to give more ammunition to our enemies.

If you have nothing better to do than to slander Fox News or Megyn Kelly, I suggest you find a new Political Party. The ship is sinking and the so called conservatives are drilling holes in the life boats.

sorry. Well, I can´t comment on this one interview but the other night she hit the admin with 3 consecutive blocks with great effect starting with Bundy and the IRS. Megan doesn´t present herself as a conservative and hits Republicans hard, especially Rinos, when deserved. You are asking her to be a Hannity when she is lots better at certain things than O´Reilly who has innate biases that show up clearly like against oil, soft on unions, and not critical enough of Obama´s danger to our society. He gives him too many good intentions about deliberate acts of destruction, etc. I turn him on for Miller and Watters but he is awful at cutting off high points when people try to give decent background, often women.

#18: I´ll stay out of your "issues" if you will stay out of "mine". /s I don´t buy into the baloney that what´s yours is yours, and what´s mine is ours.

As to old-style feminism: has anyone observed that in addition to driving hyper-inflation (the market will bear more when both spouses work) and forcing many women to work in order to make ends meet; and in addition to the impact on child rearing; it also has had the unintended(??) consequence of dramatically reducing white fertility rates - affecting the demographics of the nation.

#18, you are wrong, men do have a dog in this fight. I’ve been in construction for 45 years and I’ve had to deal with women architects and engineers. Some knew their stuff but lacked a field background. Most were recruited by larger firms to bolster the company’s female involvement, I don’t mean to imply that makes them inferior, but they advance without the testing a man goes through. In my experience, when I pointed out any of their errors, some acted like zero did to Dr. Carson and insisted that they were right, that reaction was triple that of egotistical male colleagues. When we lost time and the client’s money repairing those mistakes, they were hostile because I was right when I warned them.

I have worked with some that earned my respect, but most of them wanted to flaunt their credentials and position over others. When they enter with an attitude that they’re going to show everyone that they’re as good as a man, watch for trouble, but when they enter as part as a team that wants a successful project, nobody cares if they’re female. There are still some sexists and racists on job sites, but for the most part, nobody wants to be part of a fiasco and a failure, they want to do a good job on a good job and then go home.

BTW, I grew up with nine sisters and have witnessed what women are capable of accomplishing. Want my respect, work with me through heat, cold, rain and snow for consecutive 16 hour days without whining about wanting to go home, then you own it.

I watched the interview, and the thing Megyn didn’t do was cut off the microphone while the guest made her plight look archaic and stupid.

Not sure what all the fuss is about. personally never watch Megyn Kelly she is NOT a Conservative and O´Reilly is half way between a Democrat and a Republican . I guess so he can get a bigger viewing audience. I watch Sean Hannity he states categorically that his program is Conservative and I never miss a session.

I watch Megyn pretty regularly and was surprized at this interview. It was a love-fest, too much girlish chumminess for my taste.

Too bad she didn´t have Christina Hoff Summers on in equal time allotments to offer a counter-point.

But usually Kelly is tough, and doggedly goes after baloney-free answers.

Maybe her mistake was in having a guest whom she idolizes, and really really really really likes.

#18 I totally agree. You had me at your first sentence. The guests first admitted that women are different from men. That´s a big YES! And we need to improve our tactics for competing in a man´s world. Sorry, guys, you don´t understand this segment. I own my own business. I LOVED it, and found it to be very helpful.!

The conservative commentators who advocated a “path to citizenship” after the 2012 election bear partial blame for the current wave of illegal immigrants from Central America. Many of those who advocated for amnesty following the 2012 election are now complaining that people indeed came expecting that amnesty. But there is also an unbelievably bad policy at the root of the problem. The William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2008 is the awful piece of legislation that is allowing tens of thousands of illegal aliens to be released and remain in America while awaiting “deportation hearings” that we all

At a recent town hall meeting in Edmond, Oklahoma, local citizens gathered to discuss the possible connection between fracking and increased seismic activity in their area. According to one published report, members of the audience left “disappointed” that no consensus had been reached linking fracking and seismic activity. (snip)Clearly, the left is engaged in an all-out effort to smear the oil and gas industry by spreading misinformation and fostering confusion – such as ignoring the difference between fracking itself and wastewater injection. The intent of this effort is to cripple the U.S. economy by depriving it of an efficient and

After months of collaboration with dozens of family activists, my blogging squad (English Manif) was able to publish a catalog of 300 real-life examples of totalitarian conduct by the gay marriage and gay parenting movement. For the convenience of readers, and to allow for discussion with common reference points, we have numbered the examples. The incidents range from small and episodic things (snip) to the grave and severe, such as #157 (the imprisonment of a young French man for opposing same-sex marriage) or #162 (the hiring of trained provocateurs to infiltrate the French Manif pour Tous).

Anthony Cumia gets attacked all the time: Most often for telling the truth about black crime and violence that is stratospherically out of proportion. And how reporters condone it. On Thursday night, July 3, his bosses at Sirius XM radio fired him for it. “The decision was made, and Cumia informed, late Thursday, July 3, after careful consideration of his racially charged and hate-filled remarks on social media,” said the suits at Sirius. “Those remarks and postings are abhorrent to SiriusXM, and his behavior is wholly inconsistent with what SiriusXM represents.” Cumia was typically defiant: “Sirius decided to cave and fire me,” he

It was headlining AOL on Friday: a story about a woman stabbing a schoolteacher to death in front of a class of five and six-year-olds. The gruesome and bloody crime occurred in the southern French town of Albi; the victim was a 34-year-old mother of two. But a certain bit of information is conspicuously missing from virtually all the reportage.

On July 2, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) announced that it would not reopen the investigation into the destruction of TWA 800. This was the Boeing 747 that was blown out of the sky ten miles south of the Long Island coast on July 17, 1996, killing all 230 people on board. The TWA 800 Project, a team of former aviation investigators and scientists, had petitioned the NTSB to examine evidence that pointed toward a missile strike on the airline. Not surprisingly, the NTSB, which had invested four years of resources to prove some other theory, any other theory, chose

The Hobby Lobby decision has ignited liberals and unleashed their prejudice. And this ad is shameful.

Here is a copy from the website of the Freedom From Religious Foundation that wrote and paid for the ad (snip) what is worse is this line from the ad: “All-male, All-Roman Catholic Majority on Supreme Court Puts Religious Wrongs over Women’s Rights.” Anti-Catholicism apparently is no problem for this group.

The Obama administration quietly announced on Tuesday that it intends to change the way Americans learn about natural disasters and other major emergencies during radio and TV broadcasts, giving the president the ability to flip a switch and address the entire nation at once. The Emergency Alert System, the latest version of a program first established in 1951, blasts out emergency messages in the event of local weather emergencies, but can also be used to warn Americans about terror attacks and major natural disasters.

In his message to the “Mexico/Holy See Colloquium on Migration and Development,” Pope Francis characterized the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants that have crossed the U.S. southern border as a product of globalization, suggesting that the phenomenon is happening worldwide. Francis proclaimed, “Despite the large influx of migrants present in all continents and in almost all countries, migration is still seen as an emergency, or as a circumstantial and sporadic fact, while instead it has now become a hallmark of our society and a challenge.” Emmer McCarthy for Vatican Radio said Francis expressed his concern for “the tens of thousands of

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School. They’ve just learned they will no longer be allowed to buy Chick-fil-A

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

With Bill on the skids and his wife’s future prospects on the line, it was necessary for the pubic to see the president being punished, said Weekly Standard online editor Daniel Halper in his new book, “Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine.” “They understood that
