Cut his mic: Fox versus facts
Despite the fact that voter fraud allegations against ACORN are known to be a Rovian political strategy and that no instances of voter fraud can be attributed to the organization, Fox News' female beauty queen version of Bill O'Reilly, Megyn Kelly continues to attempt to portray voter registration fraud perpetrated against ACORN as evidence of its corruption. Kelly went so far as to say that ACORN has pleaded guilty to voter fraud. Needless to say, this is not the case, but it doesn't matter; Fox and the Republican Noise Machine constantly offer allegations of ACORN wrongdoing and then cite their own allegations as evidence of wrongdoing.
When confronted with someone willing to call Kelly and Fox out on the lies, Kelly resorts to O'Reilly's tactic ordering the guest's mic cut so that she can lie without disturbance.
One can see the sort of professional ethics that lands one with an anchor position at Fox and allows them to smear with impunity.
