Ten hours of life TV.
Every week while.
-- what do you -- with some nonsense car chases -- our sense cover the car chase of the moment ratings gold.
Teen models diet fads -- ratings coal but.
We supposed to be in the news business -- -- what's important.
Well that's a crime it's a crime in progress we cover crime depending on what it is every day want to cover -- a crime in progress where we can witness.
The events and we all and in essence become potential witnesses in court because -- watch it unfold and there's a big question mark about the outcome I think that's what people really want to watch it is because.
-- want to -- -- what's gonna happen.
-- -- -- -- -- -- These show -- yours is called America line.
There is happening now which comes on before you it's all about what's happening now that's what people want.
But I think the important stuff.
The gradual increase in the deficit which may crush us the woman's movement the invention of the birth control pill the invention of the computer chip.
Rely -- covering bad and that's the most important stuff what you're covering the -- of the day.
We cover less of that.
I think that is true -- of the evening broadcasts on network and it is of cable news because as you say I do ten hours of live TV a week.
If for no other reason than you have to fell.
That time we get to virtually all the major stories -- tons of stories on debt on the deficit.
On health care when the healthcare debate for started I was -- anchoring.
America's Newsroom with Bill -- in the mornings.
And ours was one of the very first shows to pay that story any attention.
-- you don't remember -- is such a huge story but when it first started nobody was paying attention to it and then an you know.
An explosion happened with the Tea Party everybody else and now rupees on.
And no questions -- the reasons I left ABC to go to fox because fox covers much more of the stuff that I think is important until I was much real estate or their which point 470 cooperation we have a lot of real estate to cover.
But if we were saying we're -- people shouldn't it be all that I mean you -- just recently here's the story you covered patios for man.
Many have -- in the.
Introducing meant -- -- -- Yes man T codes or perhaps you prefer.
Women have recognized the benefits of -- like where for decades.
Okay come on.
Ticker for the Shalit out of -- never failing directly forward -- -- as we wanted to talk to him about his rosary.
Note that -- you can give the viewers a laughing still bring in the news I like to think of my check in to speak to how we approach Marcia.
Which is it's it's all the news you can talk about something that's a social issue or something that a mom may be experience -- Or something that we'll just give people cocktail party -- like many -- or rosary but every second we devote to that is the second we take away from.
Health -- Rights deficit right we could completely transform ourselves in the the most boring network possible it's RD out there it's called seaspan.
With all due respect they do a good service but.
Is the -- wants to watch that point 47 they wanna get their news but they also wanna be -- -- I think this is a problem a lot of the other networks don't get the Fox News does.
Did this the key is to give -- the news but not to more than two to death don't Warrenton death it's not necessary.
So I'd make a distinction about C span because C span covers politicians talking.
And that's not news that's just wind bags talking I and I -- -- Analyzing this stuff and you know I.
Not gonna be holier than now I've -- in your show.
With a -- yeah I was gonna so were you standing there next to me -- -- pack up.
Yes and that's up to make a point about the tax incentives and how they distort the economy doesn't you know it's it's they did IF props yet I love your props I actually sitting next to the ball and chain here we go offices.
It's not that heavy a road to serfdom okay -- -- serial disappointments a little disappointment if you hold it gives her eyes so I wanna put -- on I'm not saying I'm above this this saying that.
I mean we'll hear it here so here's -- thought about covering the -- Here's -- your caught up -- -- caught up.
It's it's journalism yes but it's broadcast journalism and you need to be both a journalist and you need to be good broadcaster in order to deliver compelling television.
And some people aren't some people aren't in part of the broadcast obligation I think -- didn't make it compelling visually to keep people stimulated as they watch it's not just about.
This straight news and nothing but the facts because they can get that -- get that in print -- get that on line.
When they turn into a television show they want to see more they want to see announces it received in video and I think they do more more wanna take that a more emotional journey as they get the news.
Megyn Kelly thank you good luck with your ten hours a week --
