Video: Megyn Kelly Smacks Down Gloria Allred

posted at 11:02 pm on February 1, 2010 by Danny Glover

Four months of maternity leave didn’t mellow Megyn Kelly in the least. The Fox News anchor smacked down abortion advocate Gloria Allred today in the debut of her own show, “America Live,” during a segment about a pro-life ad set to air during Sunday’s Super Bowl.

Allred claims that the Focus on the Family ad, which features Florida University football star Tim Tebow and his mother, Pam, is “misleading” even though she hasn’t seen it.

The ad reportedly will tell the story of how Pam Tebow decided not to abort Tim even though doctors told her the pregnancy could endanger her life. Allred is threatening to file complaints with the FCC and FTC if the ad airs but does not mention her allegation that aborting the pregnancy at the time in the Philippines would have been a crime.

Kelly poked holes in Allred’s take on the ad throughout the video. She asked whether Allred believes a woman’s right to choose extends to choosing life, why she would object to someone airing an ad with a religious message, and why abortion advocates don’t air a competing ad if they are so bothered by the Tebows’ message.

“As you know, that’s the bedrock of the First Amendment,” Kelly said. “The answer to speech you don’t like is not less speech; it’s more speech.”

But the highlight of the segment comes at about the 4:30 mark. Allred ridiculously in effect argued that if Focus on the Family insists on airing an advocacy ad during a sports event, it should be compelled to air the equivalent of a mini-documentary explaining Philippines law.

Kelly’s response: “No ad can tell the entire story about the law as it stands in the Philippines. … It’s just a practical impossibility, Gloria, which would lead many to say that this is a PR stunt by you.”

Lesson #1- Don’t BS Megyn.She is way too fast,smart and feisty for those who try to deceive.

Alred is all wrong. Megyn burned her good. It may have been illegal EXCEPT to save the life of the mother. That is what her doctor said.
The pro-choicers choice is ABORTION.

newsjunkieky on February 1, 2010 at 11:15 PM

I saw that interview live and the only thing I could think is that Allred is pro-abortion and nothing more.

Is Shep still employed on Fox? I avoid his time slots and those should be given to Megyn. She`s fierce!

ThePrez on February 1, 2010 at 11:18 PM

Did Allred actually say “This is about life and death”? I’d have to say she’s right. Every time there’s an abortion somebody dies.

Oldnuke on February 1, 2010 at 11:18 PM

My guess is someone is leaving out the part where they lived in the Philippine?
Otherwise it’s just confusing.
So the only “choice” she really had was to get an abortion, because, no one is allowed to abort save to save their life?
Someone ‘splan this to me.

Observation on February 1, 2010 at 11:19 PM

Let us suppose that Allred client Rachel Uchitel was carrying Tiger Woods’ baby.

Would Gloria recommend that Rachel abort the child?

I guess it would depend on whether the beach house in the Hamptons needed an upgrade.

David2.0 on February 1, 2010 at 11:22 PM

Compulsery Motherhood? We’re mandating babies? Is that really her argument? Maybe I’m just really tuned in or the left’s arguments really are becoming that weak.

birdhurd on February 1, 2010 at 11:23 PM

Allred is threatening to file complaints with the FCC and FTC if the ad airs but does not mention her allegation that aborting the pregnancy at the time in the Philippines would have been a crime.

…because no one in the Philippines ever breaks the law?

RBMN on February 1, 2010 at 11:23 PM

Megyn Kelly absolutely crushing the feckless arguments of progressive liberals and making the look like complete idiots in the process….more please.

Hellrider on February 1, 2010 at 11:24 PM

It was of equal slapping-downage when the Focus on the Family guy (who created and paid for the Tebow, pro-life ad) came on with Meagan Kelly after Alred was off, and the guy said that he’d found information “in about five minutes” that identified “how easily it was to get an abortion in the Philipines” during Tebow’s mother’s pregnancy there (which she’d seen through to term, and thus, birthed her son, Tebow and did not abort him).

Alred had gone on in failed allegations that abortions were hard to get or somehow close to impossible to obtain while the Focus/Family guy then proved her (utterly, completely) wrong soon afterward.

And, yes, Kelley was great. Her new show is, too.

Lourdes on February 1, 2010 at 11:24 PM

Gloria involved in a PR stunt? Noooo!

TheBigOldDog on February 1, 2010 at 11:27 PM

I hear/read this weird complaint from Leftwingers/abortion advocates all.the.time: that women are “forced to” bear children, that there exists this “compulsory motherhood” or “forced pregnancies” running rampant everywhere, anywhere…

It’s as if people of such mindset exist in a results-hating state of mind…I’d call them “male hating” but in fact, pregnancies occur WITH a male involved, so the answer is very straightforward and the advocates who promote this version of hate-speech (“compulsory motherhood” exists, therefore abortions are necessary to avoid this plight) don’t want to face the music: you get pregnant when you have sexual intercourse, not when you don’t.

I mean by that that on average I’d venture to say that MOST females who find themselves pregnant were willing participants in the sexual act that resulted in their pregnancy. The obvious answer is…

Allred is an idiot. And why do pro-abortionists always bring in religion to the matter? Does God say thou shalt not perform abortions? Now, it does say something about murder, but all societies recognize that. So, I don’t get it.

Narutoboy on February 1, 2010 at 11:30 PM

JohnGalt23 on February 1, 2010 at 11:31 PM

You can actually see the envy in Allred’s eyes as she looks at Megyn Kelly. “Damn it,” she thinks to herself. “I was never that smart or good looking.” Allred also probably thinks that Megyn should be grateful for all of the “sacrifices to the cause” she made so that Megyn could have the position she is in. Because, after all, no woman could possibly be successful if it wasn’t for the hard work of women like Gloria Allred.

nogooddeed on February 1, 2010 at 11:32 PM

Welcome back Megyn….I have missed your presence these last few months…I love your feisty, no hold bar-smack down on the folks who think that they can get away with Illogical thinking….Looking forward to watching the show….
Congrats on your new born.
God Bless

I’d like to smack down Gloria Allred, but I’m not as sophisticated as Megyn. I’d use a 2×4.

…why abortion advocates don’t air a competing ad if they are so bothered by the Tebows’ message.

How were they supposed to know — far enough in advance of the Super Bowl to fund and produce a commercial — that CBS would ignore its own policy on political ads? I guess if they were as cynical as Focus on the Family they might have had a chance.

RightOFLeft on February 1, 2010 at 11:36 PM

Who appointed Gloria Allred the commerical police? Her arguments were over-reaching; CBS can run a pro-life ad as long as they run a (free of charge) disclaimer?

Observation on February 1, 2010 at 11:19 PM

What Allred was attempting to do was push a “forced pregnancy” plight upon Tebow’s mother, that although Tebow and his mother both testify as to an intuitive if not spiritual dedication to life (mother having the child against all odds, child now grown grateful for that and respectful of mother’s courage and gift), Allred was selling/pushing the “she had no choice” point of view based upon, so Allred falsely claimed, abortions were “hard to get” in the Phillipines at the time of Tebow’s gestation there (and thus, so Allred was setting up, the mother had no choice because abortions were not easy to get there and the pregnancy was “forced” or some evil plot by nature to bring a child to term that feminists hate the idea of, whatever)…

The Focus on the Family guy appeared right after Allred and held up a report he says he “easily obtained” in “about five minutes” that proves Allred wrong, that abortions were (I’m paraphrasing, don’t have actual quotes) “easy to get” or “readily available” in the Phillipines at the mother’s time of pregnancy there…

He went on to say that he didn’t know why Allred was not able to obtain the same information he had and had done so so easily…

It just proved how incredible Allred’s state of mind and general argument actually is: she, like most abortion advocates, USE these “plight” conditions to try to frame abortion as a “necessary medical act” because of this thing Allred described as “coerced motherhood” existing for women.

About the issue of “force”, however, as in rape of a woman, no child is responsible for that act; abortionists want the world to believe that taking the life of an innocent child is somehow the right thing to do.

I can’t imagine the barbarity in someone’s mind that would even begin to claim that an unborn child should lose their life because their biological father “forced” their mother to engage sexually. It doesn’t compute ethically, morally or religiously.

Lourdes on February 1, 2010 at 11:39 PM

Alred must be in a different state during that interview. This explains why she is yelling. Or she is normally an annoying yeller. Or she survived the abort attempt. Is she married? If so I feel sorry the the other chick.

Was that not nice?

Not necessarily…that response (“make your own ad”).

It’s a reasonable thing to say to anyone complaining about an ad: “go make your own”…

What the abortion advocates WANT is to SILENCE the ad by this pro-life group with this pro-life message. They don’t necessarily want to “go public” and actually advertise their services (to perform abortions), they just want to silence/suppress anyone who exclaims pro-life.

Lourdes on February 1, 2010 at 11:47 PM

Not even close to an even fight. Megan is a new mother and understands just what that developing life is. Given that, this was like trying to mess with a mother bear’s cubs. Allred? To her, abortion is just the liberal’s sacrament and she can’t see beyond that.

AZfederalist on February 1, 2010 at 11:47 PM

So, each time CBS runs a car commercial, they have to run a commercial featuring bicycles or women will die…

CWforFreedom on February 1, 2010 at 11:45 PM

When placed under the light of day — best disinfectant — the pro-abortionists’ rationalizations quickly wither.

It’s one thing for a woman to carry a pregnancy to term that she’s been told will threaten her life AND the life of the child she’s carrying and then to go forth with it anyway, based upon faith in survival (and God, because many people who do so rely on a religious belief that they will survive and their child will, too, or, one of them will, and that aborting a child is morally and ethically wrong, especially, so that the risk is justifiable).

Even so, pro-abortionists will ENCOURAGE if not threaten a woman in those conditions: criticize her faith, weaken her optimism, trash her best hopes, generally try to “kill” her expectations and ideals along with the child she’s carrying.

That’s the awful truth of things. Abortion kills human life in many capacities.

I am pretty Libertarian on social issues, but the claim that abortion is simply about a womans right to choose ignores the obvious.

This kind of thing always brings to mind something that Stewie Griffin said to Brian: “Don’t worry, Brian.

If the message of the ad is something along the lines that even when abortion seems like the “easy” or “necessary” solution, life will bring great rewards in the end, I don’t see how the legality of abortion is even a factor. Surely the coat-hangerists were advocating for abortion before it was a “right” of the Constitution.

I haven’t talked to every abortion advocate, but I doubt that’s true. NOW has responded with the kind of radicalism that I should have known better to expect, but they do not represent the sum of the opposition to anti-abortion laws.

Abortion is such an emotional, complex issue that both sides should hold themselves to some kind of standard of decorum. If either side doesn’t live up to that, it’s fair and necessary to point that out.

NOW has a kernel of a point here about the ad itself and CBS’ decision to run it, that’s as far as I’m willing to defend them.

So according to Alred
Every beer commercial should be followed by an AA commercial ?

Every ad for potato chips should be countered with an ad for veggie trays

Every ad for soda pop should be paired with an ad for fatfree yogurt drinks !!!

Silly woman

I’ll play,

Every tampon ad should be countered with hard liquor ads to remind you how to get that image out of your head. Maker’s Mark works for me. *blegh* Men should not be subjected to that ever. EVER. EVER

P.S. More people watch the Superbowl for the Ads than those that watch it for the football BTW. I say this because football fans watch it for both.

If Gloria and her pals are truly offended by this ad for life, they could certainly not watch the Super Bowl on CBS. But then, are they going to introduce “Right to Super Bowl” argument?

OK let me pull some strings and see what I can do about that

At the end of the day, Tebow’s message gets out to the viewers, and I for one am thankful. Allred must own stock in PP or an abortuary or something.

OmahaConservative on February 2, 2010 at 12:20 AM

I’m willing to bet that the Tebow ad will be one of the most popular downloaded and/or viewed ads post-superbowl. Methinks the Clydesdales and the bullfrogs will be drowning their sorrows with a brewski over their rankings drop.

I also think that if Gloria took up Megyns challenge and produced their own counter-ad, it would win the least viewed/downloaded spot.

Classic libtard rant – it’s not fair!!! The truth must out!!! Bwahahaha.

I’d rather hit this over Gloria if I were forced to choose.

Twisted! But I’m still lmao.

RIGHT OF LEFT. how is it political– the games you play kill me.

CWforFreedom on February 1, 2010 at 11:40 PM

Abortion is politics to the Left. Actually, everything is political with them. They have no core beliefs. Just a desire to make everyone as miserable as them.
