Howard Kurtz and Megyn Kelly took a closer look at the liberal backlash against the Duggar family after Josh Duggar admitted that he inappropriately touched some of his sisters as a teenager. 

"I would do anything to go back to those teen years and take different actions," Josh Duggar said in a statement. "I sought forgiveness from those I had wronged and asked Christ to forgive me and come into my life. In my life today, I am so very thankful for God's grace, mercy and redemption."

TLC has pulled all of the current episodes of "19 Kids and Counting" from television.

Josh Duggar also resigned from his position at the Family Research Council, Fox News reported.  

Kelly told Kurtz that she found it remarkable about how many people in media are covering this story.

“This isn’t going to be a cross examination of a family," Kelly said of her upcoming interview with the Josh Duggar’s parents, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar. "It’s going to be an interview… And I think America wants to hear their story.”

Kurtz told Kelly that he doesn't like how some "types" in the liberal media are covering this story.  

"Look I've been pretty disgusted by how some liberal media types are using what's obviously a family tragedy to score political points," Kurtz said.
