While taking in Megyn’s segments I’ve had some admiration and hope that she may be one of the women who takes us across the barrier from blocked news to open, truthful facts.

Shock Shake-Up Reported at Fox News With Megyn Kelly

A Fox News spokeswoman did not immediately return a request for comment from TheBlaze.
