Far-right group sees pro-gay drift at Fox News Channel
How’s THIS for sheer nuttiness?
Amid speculation that Megyn Kelly will be taking over conservative pundit Sean Hannity’s time slot on Fox News Channel, a conservative group has decried the potential move as further evidence of the network’s “pro-homosexual” agenda and “left-ward drift.”
A report last week from Matt Drudge indicated that Kelly, already slated to move from daytime to primetime, will take over Hannity’s 9 p.m. ET slot. Fox News neither confirmed nor denied the move, while Hannity insisted on his radio show that he’s “very happy” with the plans. No other media outlet has confirmed Drudge’s report.
But America’s Survival, Inc. (ASI), which bills itself as a “public policy organization,” said that replacing Hannity with Kelly would be a jump-the-shark moment for the conservative cable news channel.
“Pushing Sean Hannity out of the 9:00 p.m. slot, to make way for pro-homosexual advocate Megyn Kelly, is another sign of the channel’s left-ward drift and decline,” ASI President Cliff Kincaid said in a press release, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
ASI will detail a study its conducted on Fox’s allegedly gay-friendly drift on Aug. 20 at a National Press Club event in Washington, D.C.
