Fox News moron: Why the fuss about pepper spray?



Megyn Kelly is:

A. Just another pretty face spouting misinformation on TV.
B. A mouthpiece for corporatists.
C. A and B

The answer is C, of course. It seems Kelly is also an expert on police violence, no doubt because of her extensive on-the-scene reporting at Occupy rallies (joking):

In the mind of Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly, the pepper spray [incident at] University of California-Davis … last weekend was really just a one-sided food fight. Kelly gave her casual assessment of the increasingly common police weapon on Tuesday’s broadcast of The O’Reilly Factor, seemingly defending the cops.

“It’s a derivative of actual pepper, it’s a food product, essentially,” she told host Bill O’Reilly. “A lot of experts are looking at saying is that the real deal. Has it been diluted?” …

As Scientific American‘s Deborah Blum notes, commercial grade pepper-spray is immensely more painful than the most powerful natural pepper, the ghost chili. People who’ve eaten ghost chili compared it to “a cocktail of battery acid and glass shards,” and has since been turned into a weapon by the Chilean military.

Footnote: If you asked Kelly what she thinks of waterboarding, I’ll bet she’d say: “It’s a breathing exercise, essentially.”
