Fox News @ Night
Appearing on Fox News @ Night on Friday, Media Research Center president Brent Bozell discussed his new book, Unmasked: Big Media’s War Against Trump, and how it relates to news coverage of the 2020 presidential race. He particularly called out the press for being “in lockstep with the Democratic Party” even as the party moves far left.
In contrast to the broadcast networks, CNN, and MSNBC ignoring radical pro-abortion comments by Virginia Governor Ralph Northam (D), a look at the Fox News Channel programs in that span (The Story, Tucker Carlson Tonight, Hannity, The Ingraham Angle, and Fox News @ Night) yielded 67 minutes and 23 seconds of coverage on not only Northam’s comments, unsuccessful attempts by Virginia Democrats to pass a late-term abortion bill, and how New York was able to push through such a law last week.
In a Wednesday appearance on Fox News @ Night, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell blasted the “very bad people” in the liberal media whose false reporting have put the lives of the Covington Kids in danger.
For a year that featured Joy Behar’s anti-Christian tirade on The View, faux conservatives making fools of themselves on cable news, Jim Acosta’s nuttiness, and Samantha Bee’s ugly use of the c-word against First Daughter Ivanka Trump, 2018 provided an inordinate amount of content for the NewsBusters staff. Following the precedent set in 2016 and 2017, the following post gives you, the readers, a look at the top ten posts of 2018 based on traffic.
Nationally syndicated talk radio show host Rush Limbaugh made a rare television appearance on Tuesday’s edition of Fox News at Night With Shannon Bream. Bream asked Limbaugh to weigh in on the media’s coverage of President George H.W. Bush in the wake of his death last week.

On Wednesday, both Fox and Friends and Fox News at Night took the time to inform viewers of the case of an illegal immigrant from El Salvador, Ramon Escobar, who is believed to have murdered several homeless people in Los Angeles. Additionally, according to the Los Angeles Times, in spite of his previous criminal history and six deportations, he was granted a stay of deportation in 2016 because he applied for asylum.
Over the weekend, several Fox News Channel shows have repeatedly given attention to the awful tragedy that anti-MS13 activist Evelyn Rodriguez was struck and killed by an SUV at the site of her daughter's murder two years to the day after the death of her daughter. Rodriguez had been one of President Donald Trump's guests at this year's State of the Union speech, and the President tweeted out condolences on Friday night.
On Saturday morning, CBS and NBC both ran predictable reports arguing that human activity is causing global warming, which is causing hurricanes like Florence to be worse, while those who are skeptical are derided as "climate change deniers." By contrast, global warming skeptic Joe Bastardi appeared on both Friday's Fox News at Night and Thursday's Hannity show on FNC. He argued that, while it is true that climate has always undergone change, past hurricane seasons have actually been worse than those in recent decades, as he doubted that humans are making a significant impact on the climate.
In a mid-Tuesday morning tweet, ABC News chief foreign correspondent and longtime Supreme Court correspondent Terry Moran engaged in some mansplaining and anti-Fox News chicanery by voicing displeasure with Fox News @ Night host Shannon Bream for claiming that she left her spot Monday night outside the Supreme Court because she “felt threatened” by the “very volatile” “mood” by the far-left protesters.
Late Monday night, Fox News @ Night host and Supreme Court correspondent Shannon Bream tweeted that she had to flee her live shot from outside the Supreme Court after having “felt threatened” by the “very volatile” “mood” by the far-left protesters having conniptions over President Trump’s nomination of Brett Kavanaugh for the nation’s high Court.
On the March 10 midnight edition of Fox News @Night, Juan Williams disingenuously made three attempts to create a false equivalence between Congressional Black Caucus leaders' political and physical embraces of National of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan and Donald Trump's non-existent relationship with the KKK. Host Shannon Bream and the Daily Caller's Vince Coglianese weren't having any of it, but Williams wouldn't let go.
