Fox & Friends
As of late, The New York Times has cemented itself as the CNN of the newspaper world with a leftist trajectory and near total loss of journalistic integrity. On Monday’s Fox & Friends to discuss this travesty of modern day investigative reporting was former New York Times contributor and current New York Post reporter, Michael Goodwin.
On Fox and Friends Saturday, the weekend anchors showcased Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren getting caught on tape lying about whether one of her children attended private school while speaking with a pro-school choice protester.
In the aftermath of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's announcement that the Donald Trump administration was essentially reversing the Barack Obama policy of declaring Israeli settlements as illegal, most of the dominant media have inaccurately claimed that Trump has reversed "decades" or "40 years" of U.S. policy on the matter.
On Thursday morning, FNC's Fox and Friends gave attention to liberal efforts to restrict gun sales in Tacoma, Washington, by charging people a tax for gun sales, as if making lawful gun purchases more expensive would somehow harm criminals. At about 7:45 a.m. Eastern, the show allowed two pro-gun activists from the Tacoma Rifle and Revolver Club to appear as guests and explain why they oppose the tax.
On Friday's Fox and Friends, and again on Fox and Friends Saturday, Fox News Channel gave coverage to a story ignored by the other networks as the show recalled for viewers that two illegal immigrants have been charged with murdering a El Dorado County, California, police officer, Brian Ishmael, who was shot to death on October 23 while responding to reports of a robbery.
Over the past couple of months, as there have been signs that President Donald Trump is finally making progress in turning the tide on illegal border crossings, Fox News Channel has given substantial coverage to several critical successes while the other networks have barely touched these developments.
On Thursday's Fox and Friends, co-host Steve Doocy took the time to show viewers an embarrassing piece of video from former Vice President Joe Biden not highlighted elsewhere in the media in which the Democratic presidential candidate admitted that he advised President Barack Obama against the raid that killed Osama bin Laden in 2011.
The last couple of days have displayed the latest example of the liberal media having a freakout over President Donald Trump doing something that has also been done by Democrats in the past as the networks responded negatively to the President likening Democratic efforts to impeach him to a "lynching." After news came out that more than a half dozen prominent Democrats made similar comments as they defended President Bill Clinton from impeachment in 1998, the networks tried to downplay Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden's own history while ignoring the other Democrats.
While most of Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ two-year tenure as President Trump’s press secretary led to many clashes with the media, her replacement -- Stephanie Grisham -- is continuing some of those traditions, including no daily briefings on a regular basis. Grisham made the announcement while a guest on the Fox & Friends morning program on Monday, when she accused reporters of turning the event into political “theater” during their attempts to “get famous.”
Over the past several days, in contrast with the other networks, Fox News Channel has been giving attention to one of the Parkland parents who is pro-gun and blames President Barack Obama and other Democrats for school policies making it easier for Nikolas Cruz to murder his daughter, Meadow, and 16 other students at Stoneman Douglas High School in 2018. Andrew Pollack has appeared on a number of Fox News shows to promote his new book, Why Meadow Died, which gives the results of his own investigative efforts into the school's history of covering up Cruz's severe behavioral problems that should have already landed him with a criminal record, making it harder for him to purchase his murder weapon.
On Fox and Friends Monday, the hosts brought on Fox Business host Charles Payne to comment on how the media is now openly hoping for an economic recession under President Trump. Payne called the media’s newest obsession a “deliberate” attempt to derail the good economy under Trump, and argued there was “no economic data” to suggest a recession was near.
Liberals in the media go ballistic whenever a celebrity publicly supports President Trump. The latest target of this kind of assault is Major League Baseball star Mariano Rivera, who was unanimously inducted into the Hall of Fame on Sunday despite a hit piece slamming the former New York Yankees pitcher for having “far-right politics.” (Ever notice that conservatives are often described as being on the "far right" while liberals are rarely called the "far left?")
