Why is this important? Because people rely upon news networks and their hosts to provide them with accurate, honest information. If the pepper spray being used on protesters is "a derivative of actual pepper ... a food product, essentially" then it should be consumed as such by anyone making that claim. I would like to see Megyn prove that she believes her own statement by consuming it as a food product. This would need to be verified by an independent third-party as the same pepper spray that has been used on Occupy protesters.
Conversely, Megyn could issue a full formal retraction of her assertion by admitting she was wrong about pepper spray being a "food product" and by saying so she was simply trying to minimize the suffering of those who she and her network considers "the opposition," and never make this absurd suggestion again.
