Daily Beast media reporter Justin Baragona was just minding his own business yesterday, doing his job and watching Fox News like he’s supposed to, when he caught Kennedy just casually making an outrageous suggestion on “Outnumbered”:
Fox News host Kennedy just casually suggests that public schools should be eliminated.
“A great time in our country’s history where we rethink whether or not we have public schools. Maybe we should not have the government involved in education at all.” pic.twitter.com/BCR8w1edes

Why does the quote you included cut off other stuff she said, Justin?
Here’s Kennedy’s full sentence: “Maybe we should not have the government involved in education at all, so parents and teachers and administrators can make those decisions themselves instead of having the government impose it on them.”
So what Kennedy is arguing for is getting the government out of schools and empowering students and parents (and teachers, too, without the oppressive influence of teachers’ unions). That actually seems pretty reasonable.
Completely deflected the how about the people who can’t afford private education part. Very convenient.

She didn’t, though. You’d know that, Metin, if you’d bothered to watch the video that Justin posted.
But Justin’s counting on his followers not to read past “Fox News host Kennedy just casually suggests that public schools should be eliminated.” Plenty of his followers will indeed not read past that. Shame on them, because Kennedy is right.
She’s right. https://t.co/FNqpNfJWJ3

You go @KennedyNation!!! 100% endorse. The best way to bring real education back is to give parents the ability to use the money earmarked for each student, which here in Loudoun is north of $12k per student per year, however they choose: public, private, charter, homeschool. https://t.co/FhrSdFTWpb

What is Justin Baragona so afraid of? That kids who deserve better might actually be given an opportunity to get better?
That sound you hear is the zeitgeist gnawing through its leash and leftists trying to beat it into submission with a rolled-up newspaper. https://t.co/BBbMvLjW6y

Are you going to be okay? https://t.co/6VghHHIvjR

Justin’s not going to be OK. But if more governments listen to Kennedy, the kids might just be all right.
