Jimmy Kimmel Asks Megyn Kelly to Air 'The Interview' on Fox News
"I don't know if I did the right thing" reporting on Sony hack, says Megyn Kelly
Jimmy Kimmel and Megyn Kelly discussed Sony's decision not to release The Interview when the Fox News host stopped by Kimmel's show on Wednesday.
Sony's decision came after the U.S.' top five theater chains pulled the movie from their theaters following threats from the Sony hacker group, which said theatergoers would be in danger if they went to see the film. Kelly said that while she found Sony's decision "deeply troubling," she thinks the "only message back has to be from the American consumer." She and Kimmel talked about whether the movie should be released on DVD and whether they think Sony will release it at a later date.
The duo also discussed the media's role in covering the Sony hack, and Kelly talked about reporting on the leaked information. "I don't know if I did the right thing," she said.
Then, Kimmel brought their conversation back to the movie's release. He said, "Do you think Fox News will take a stand and air The Interview in its entirety on its channel? Yes?" Kelly laughed and responded, "Further updates to follow."
