Megyn Kelly Declares CAIR Is ‘Not Getting’ a Retraction for Covering Film on Islamic Women

On Tuesday, the host of The Kelly File on the Fox News Channel discussed Honor Diaries, a documentary intended to depict the “systematic, institutionalized misogyny against Muslim women around the world.”

The first segment aired on Monday and drew a demand for an apology from the Council of American-Islamic Relations. Twenty-four hours later, Megyn Kelly told CAIR: “Well, guess what — you’re not getting it.”

She made that remark during another segment discussing the film on Tuesday with two guests: Agnieszka Karoluk, senior communications coordinator for CAIR-Chicago; and human rights attorney Brooke Goldstein, whom Kelly stated “first brought this issue to our attention.”

Kelly began the discussion by stating there’s “a growing backlash tonight over a film that is trying to bring attention to the so-called ‘honor violence’ inflicted on Muslim women around the world.”

“The film is called Honor Diaries,” she noted, “and while it has been shown dozens of times on U.S. college campuses — not to mention at the U.N. Human Rights Council in Geneva — several U.S. universities have postponed or flat out-and-out canceled screenings of the film” after groups like CAIR complained that the documentary is “Islamophobic.”

The Fox News host then showed a clip of the film in which the female narrator stated that in Muslim-majority societies, the system “is really the basis of a lot of harm that is perpetuated against women.”

Kelly then asked Karoluk: “Why would CAIR want to silence this film?”
