Megyn Kelly speaks out about Donald Trump and Breitbart’s attacks against her and Fox News after the 2015 GOP debate and how Fox News’ then-CEO Roger Ailes responded, in FRONTLINE’s documentary “America’s Great Divide: From Obama to Trump.” Coming to PBS January 13 and 14.
“Roger definitely felt that he had to keep that sort of Breitbart wing of the viewership onboard; that they were at risk thanks to Trump’s attacks on me and Fox in the wake of that debate,” Kelly says. “And he definitely wasn’t going to lose 30% of the viewers, as this man, who by August of 2015 we knew was the likely Republican nominee.”

FRONTLINE’s two-part special documentary “America’s Great Divide: From Obama to Trump” explores the nation’s increasingly bitter, divided and toxic politics. Part One traces how Barack Obama’s promise of unity collapsed as increasing racial, cultural and political divisions laid the groundwork for the rise of Donald Trump. Part Two examines how Trump’s campaign exploited the country’s divisions — and how his presidency has unleashed anger on both sides.
From veteran FRONTLINE filmmaker Michael Kirk and his team, “America’s Great Divide,” premieres on Mon., January 13 and Tues., January 14 at 9/8c, on PBS and streaming on the PBS Video App or online at pbs.org/frontline.
