It was former Breitbart reporter and alleged “assault victim” Michelle Fields who said she never wanted to be part of the story. But during this presidential election cycle, she’s not the only member of the media who’s made headlines.
One of the interesting side shows this time ’round has been the very public feud between Megyn Kelly and Donald Trump, which began with her hardline questioning during the first Fox News debate. Trump picked up the baton and gave her a twitter bashing that hasn’t let up since.
But now perhaps we’re seeing a little rapprochement.
Eagle-eyed New Yorkers noticed Megyn Kelly entering Trump Tower shortly before noon this morning for a secret meeting.
The Hill says, Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump and Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly reportedly met Wednesday at Trump Tower in New York after months of feuding.
Megyn Kelly just went into Trump Tower and was "met by a member of Trump's team," reports @AymanM

The meeting was brokered by Fox News chairman Roger Ailes, a source with knowledge of the situation told CNN Money.
Representatives for Trump and Fox did not return inquiries from The Hill about the meeting.
“To be honest, every time I prepare an invitation to sit down with him, he attacks me on Twitter or elsewhere,” Kelly told Variety for a story published last week.
“I had always been hoping I could reach out to him at a time when he wasn’t angry. I don’t think it would be a good interview if he was angry at me—but then he never stops with the attacks. I was just about to ask him to sit down with me two weeks ago, but then he started up again out of the blue.”
Am I the only one who thinks the “feud” between Megyn and Donald is about as real as the World Wrestling Entertainment feuds? Their battle only helps ratings, and as the wrestling world knows, every hero needs a good villain.
I suppose the question in this case is, which is which?
