Putin: early to speak about retaliation against new USA sanctions - agency

United States Congress

NBC News chief Andy Lack hired Kelly away from Fox in January, offering her what industry insiders believe was a raise over the $15 million per year salary she earned at the ultraconservative network.

On Saturday, journalist Yashar Ali obtained an unedited video of Kelly's interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin for the left-wing HuffPost and promptly eviscerated the "nervous" Kelly for asking Putin "softball" questions.

Putin responds - in the video obtained by Huffington Post - by speaking about the "live, direct connection", he has for Russian Federation before launching into an uninterrupted spiel about his economic hopes for his country.

"Our population's real time wages have grown manifold, pensions have grown several times over", Putin said as Kelly watched on. "Has it taken any sort of personal toll on you?"

Ali spoke with a former CIA Russia analyst, who was reportedly "taken aback by the last question Kelly asked".

"All of this, including our great history, great culture, all of this; not just what we see today, is what makes the vast majority of Russia's citizens feel proud of their country".

Yashar Ali writes that "Kelly repeatedly fails to interrupt the Russian president while he rambles in his responses", and she "asks Putin questions he can easily dispute".

Though establishment media journalists patted Kelly on the head when she tried to undercut Donald Trump during the 2016 election cycle, they mostly slammed Kelly for being way out of her league after Putin's interview.

The footage was published as Kelly and NBC faced a backlash over her interview this Sunday with radio host Alex Jones, a conspiracy theorist who claimed the Sandy Hook massacre that killed 26 people in 2012 was a hoax.

Yahoo's Ken Tucker wrote that Putin's "a load of nonsense" comment could have described "most of the premiere of Sunday Night With Megyn Kelly".
