Fox News issues statement after Fauci calls for host’s firing

Fox News issued a statement of support for host Jesse Watters after Dr. Anthony Fauci said he should be first over his remarks about the coronavirus expert.

Watters had called for conservatives to investigate Fauci in order to expose the doctor and others, including Massachusetts Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren.

The remarks took place during Turning Point USA’s recent conference in Phoenix, Arizona.

“Based on watching the full clip and reading the entire transcript, it’s more than clear that Jesse Watters was using a metaphor for asking hard-hitting questions to Dr. Fauci about gain-of-function research and his words have been twisted completely out of context,” the statement read.

“He’s gonna go, very likely, unaccountable. I mean, whatever network he’s on is not going to do anything for him,” Fauci argued.

The controversy is resolved from the viewpoint of Fox News, but Fauci has clearly noted his disdain for the network and its hosts.
