Last Friday Fox Business Network anchor Melissa Francis made news with her allegation that CNBC “silenced” her for questioning Obamacare. Francis said executives chastised her for being “disrespectful to the office of the president” for noting that the ObamaCare numbers don’t add up. She made the point that the administration relied on people’s (read Democrats) “lack of economic understanding” to help pass ObamaCare and also the liberal media to help cover up the truth.”
On the Kelly File Monday night, she expanded on her experience at CNBC and commented on their disrespectful and glib response to her accusation.
Kelly read CNBC’s “nasty little shot” at Francis on the air: “That’s laughable, but we take notice because as the fastest growing network in primetime (Hm! Megyn sniffs) we’re always on the lookout for high quality comedy writers and actresses.”
(Melissa Francis was a child actress who is best known for her role as Cassandra (Cooper) Ingalls on Little House on the Prairie.)
“They don’t try to deny it – they just try to attack you personally,” Kelly declared.
“I guess,” Francis replied. “I thought their response was glib and sarcastic and they treat it like a joke and I don’t think it is a joke.”
