When former Vice President Joe Biden visited Detroit on Tuesday, he got more than he expected when a construction worker asked whether he would let gun owners keep their firearms or use the government to remove them instead. The employee who posed that question was a guest on Wednesday morning's edition of Fox & Friends, when he said he was surprised that the Democratic frontrunner responded with a great deal of hostility and vulgarity to his question.
On Thursday morning, Fox News Channel highlighted efforts by Democrats to impose more gun control in Virginia as gun rights activist Dana Loesch appeared as a guest on Fox and Friends. Loesch not only discussed efforts to push back against the Democratic legislature which is trying to pass new gun laws, but she also correctly pointed out that crime increased in Colorado and Maryland after those states passed gun control in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook school shootings.
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.
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?")
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Monday’s Fox & Friends and responded to the latest insults from ever-bitter CNN political analyst and American Urban Radio Networks White House correspondent April Ryan, who had stated on Thursday that Sanders “can’t” be “trust[ed]” and quipped that she should have her head “lopp[ed]....off.”
Since Thursday night, several shows on Fox News Channel have highlighted the latest example of an illegal immigrant who has murdered a police officer while the other networks have ignored the story.
Less than a day after Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez announced her “Green New Deal” to the public, reaction to her proposal has been sharply divided between conservatives and liberals, a fact that was reflected in Friday morning’s edition of the Fox & Friends program. While the three co-hosts expressed deep skepticism about the project, their guest -- and liberal Fox News contributor -- Geraldo Rivera praised it as “idealistic,” “aspirational” and a “wish list” from the New York socialist.
After initially ignoring the controversy surrounding Virginia Democratic Governor Ralph Northam suggesting it would be both legal and acceptable under a proposed new abortion law if a baby were delivered and then allowed to die outside the mother's body, CNN finally ran a few briefs on Thursday morning, and MSNBC ran one. But the reports provided cover for Northam, with CNN host Dave Briggs in particular suggesting conservatives might have misunderstood him even though the Democratic governor clearly stated that not resuscitating a newborn baby would be an allowed option.
On Wednesday morning, Fox News Channel gave attention to another state where Democrats are pushing for an extreme plan to legalize abortion up until birth, this time in Virginia. Over the past week, FNC has also given attention to the recently passed legalization law in New York that has so far been ignored by CNN, MSNBC, and the broadcast networks. Hours later, Democratic Governor Ralph Northam would go further on WTOP-FM by endorsing the killing of children outside the womb after having been “kept comfortable” and “a discussion” that “would ensue between the physicians and mother.”
On Thursday morning, Fox and Friends spent time informing viewers of some of the misinformation that the dominant liberal media like CNN and MSNBC have been spreading about the caravan of illegal immigrants trying to get into the U.S. As co-host Steve Doocy was joined by Gus Portela of Accuracy in Media, the segment highlighted the media tendency to downplay the large number of adult men and non-citizens who will never qualify for asylum who are trying to use the caravan to enter the U.S., as well as the significant number who have a criminal history.
