Trump Lashes Out At Fox News After Outlet Hires Liberal: ‘They Forgot The People Who Got Them There’

On Sunday, President Trump took to Twitter and unloaded on Fox News for their hiring of another liberal news host.

In a flurry of tweets directed at the conservative network, Trump said watching Fox News was now worse than watching CNN or NBC. The president said their hiring from across the proverbial aisle has given platforms to liberals to bash him on the network.

Speaking of Fox News, Trump said they are “changing fast, but they forgot the people who got them there.”

“Watching @FoxNews weekend anchors is worse than watching low ratings Fake News @CNN, or Lyin’ Brian Williams (remember when he totally fabricated a War Story trying to make himself into a hero, & got fired. A very dishonest journalist!) and the crew of degenerate Comcast (NBC/MSNBC) Trump haters, who do whatever Brian & Steve tell them to do,” the president said in his Twitter rant.

“Like CNN, NBC is also way down in the ratings. But @FoxNews, who failed in getting the very BORING Dem debates, is now loading up with Democrats & even using Fake unsourced @nytimes as a ‘source’ of information (ask the Times what they paid for the Boston Globe, & what they sold it for (lost 1.5 Billion Dollars), or their old headquarters building disaster, or their unfunded liability? @FoxNews is changing fast, but they forgot the people who got them there!” Trump added.

BizPac Review reports:

While Trump didn’t call him out by name, Chris Wallace — a registered Democrat — is a vocal Trump critic who hosts Fox News Weekend. It’s likely he was referencing Wallace, whom Trump has criticized before.

Trump also called out former CNN contributor Donna Brazile by name. Brazile, a longtime Hillary Clinton friend and ally, is the former interim chair of the DNC who was ousted by CNN after being caught leaking debate questions to Hillary.

The president continued his rant in another pair of tweets which read, “Impossible to believe that @FoxNews has hired @donnabrazile, the person fired by @CNN (after they tried to hide the bad facts, & failed) for giving Crooked Hillary Clinton the questions to a debate, something unimaginable. Now she is all over Fox, including Shep Smith, by far their lowest rated show. Watch the @FoxNews weekend daytime anchors, who are terrible, go after her big time. That’s what they want – but it sure is not what the audience wants!”

BizPac Review also reports mainstream media networks mostly hire within their own Left-leaning bias, except Fox News. According to the report, Fox News balances their hiring of news hosts to include liberal and conservatives:

Unlike CNN or MSNBC, Fox News is not monolithic. While CNN employs “Republican” hosts, they all hate Trump. CNN and MSNBC do not employ any full-time hosts who support Trump.

In contrast, Fox News employs a large number of leftist contributors and anchors who openly despise Donald Trump. That’s in addition to their stable of conservative opinion hosts (like Hannity and Laura Ingraham) who are Trump supporters.

So Fox News actually has diversity of opinion among its hosts, while CNN and MSNBC do not.

USA Today adds:

In March, Brazile wrote that her decision to commentate for Fox is “rooted in the belief that you cannot make progress, let alone reach compromise, without first listening to, and understanding those who disagree with you on critical issues.”

Trump has often praised Fox commentators like talk show host Sean Hannity, but he has on occasion criticized its news gathering organization on items ranging from pollsto its sponsorship of town halls with Democratic presidential candidates.

On June 17, Trump tweeted: “Something weird going on at Fox.”
