MEGYN KELLY (HOST): These are nonpartisan outlets that are just trying to call the electoral scoreboard --
NEWT GINGRICH: They're not nonpartisan outlets. Every outlet you described is part of the establishment.
KELLY: Fox News, really? Are we? I don't think so.
GINGRICH: Oh, come on.
GINGRICH: Look, I just heard you go through this with Governor Pence. I get it. I know where you're coming from. But, let me point out something to you.
GINGRICH: The three major networks spent 23 minutes attacking Donald Trump that night, and 57 seconds on Hillary Clinton's secret speeches. You don't think this is a scale of bias worthy of Pravda and Izvestia? I mean, you want to know why Donald Trump has had a rough time --
KELLY: If Trump is a sexual predator, that is --
GINGRICH: He's not a sexual predator, you can't say that.
KELLY: OK, that's your opinion. I'm not taking a position on it.
GINGRICH: You could not defend that statement. Now, I'm sick and tired of people like you using language that's inflammatory that's not true.
KELLY: Excuse me, Mr. Speaker, you have no idea whether it's true or not --
GINGRICH: Neither do you.
KELLY: That's right, and I'm not taking a position on it, unlike you.
GINGRICH: Yes you are, when you use the words, you took a position, and I think it's very unfair of you to do that, Megyn. I think that is exactly the bias people are upset by.
KELLY: I think that your defensiveness on this might speak volumes, sir.
GINGRICH: You want to go back through the tapes of your show recently? You are fascinated with sex, and you don't care about public policy. That's what I get out of watching you tonight.
