From Variety on Kelly’s coming out as an independent voter:
“I’m an independent,” Kelly said, adding that she’s voted for both Democrats and Republicans.
Pundits have long speculated about Kelly’s political affiliation, because she often sounds liberal on social issues, but conservative on fiscal ones. Kelly believes her lack of political ideology makes her a more effective reporter.
“I’m not rooting for anybody,” she says. “I’m a Fox News anchor, and I have no horse in the race. I can give anyone a hard time.”
Now that Rupert Murdoch is gone, the sons have taken over, I expect a few things to happen. One, Fox News chief Roger Ailes will retire. Two, Fox News will become more moderate and less divisive.
