Fox News and Megyn Kelly give Duggars a sympathetic platform

As expected, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar's interview with Fox News presented a sympathetic view of the family's experience with child molestation within their home.

Here's the New York Times account. 

And you can go to Fox for the full thing.

I watched. The Duggars are due some sympathy. Not, though, for the inaccurate assertions that release of police reports was illegal. And not for the implication that somehow there's a political or anti-religious theme to questions the case raises. Not for dragging daughter victims into it as cover. Megyn Kelly also failed to have the Duggars sufficiently address their recent political proclamations on child molestation in the context of LGBT rights. It was a gaping hole, but Kelly made it clear to people who encountered her in Springdale that her mission was to help the Duggars. Some accounts, for example here in Raw Story, didn't buy the rehab effort.
