Bill O'Reilly Dubs Megyn Kelly 'The Only One The New York Times Likes'

Sorry Bill, but it looks like Megyn is winning the Fox News popularity contest.

On "The O'Reilly Factor" on Monday, Bill O'Reilly brought up fellow Fox News host Megyn Kelly's New York Times Magazine profile, calling it a "puff piece."

"Jealous is an ugly emotion, Bill," Kelly shot back.

“Apparently they like you. They don’t like anybody else on the Fox News channel, but they like you,” he joked. “Miss Kelly everybody, the only one the New York Times likes."

The Times piece, by Jim Rutenberg, was published Jan. 21. Overall, the piece does paint a pretty positive picture of Kelly.

"A Megyn moment, as I have taken to calling it, is when you, a Fox guest -- maybe a regular guest or even an official contributor -- are pursuing a line of argument that seems perfectly congruent with the Fox worldview, only to have Kelly seize on some part of it and call it out as nonsense, maybe even turn it back on you," he writes. "The Megyn moment has upended the popular notion of how a Fox News star is supposed to behave, and led to the spectacle of a Fox anchor winning praise from the very elites whose disdain Fox has always welcomed."

Looks like it's time to for you to coin an "O'Reilly moment," Bill.
