Fox reporter rips Rudy Giuliani presser, declares allegations of voter fraud are ‘baseless’

First, it was the botched election night calls that left Fox viewers scratching their heads. Now, the network seems to be zeroing in on President Donald Trump and his campaign’s legal fight against possible voter irregularities in the 2020 presidential election.

Kristin Fisher, Fox News White House correspondent, called Thursday’s news conference with Trump’s legal team “colorful” but “light on facts.” Fisher went after the credibility of the president’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani, citing his “bold and baseless claim” of voter fraud in the election, Breitbart reported.

Fisher made the comments on Thursday’s “The Daily Briefing” on Fox News. She was speaking about a news conference Thursday in which Giuliani and former Michael Flynn attorney Sidney Powell spoke about the ongoing litigation to overturn election results in places they contend were hotspots of voter fraud.

“So much of what he said was simply not true or has already been thrown out in court,” Fisher said of the former New York City mayor. “He opened by making this really bold and baseless claim that a lot of this alleged inside voter fraud he is referring to all came from one centralized place. He called it a nationwide conspiracy, and yet he failed to provide any hard evidence to back up that one specific claim, especially when it cuts to the core of the democratic process.”

Fisher cited differences between what Giuliani was saying publicly and what he was saying in court, such as in Philadelphia where he declared fraud to the press but explicitly said it was “not fraud” when in front of a judge. Similarly, according to Fisher, Giuliani’s claim was “not true” that Michigan de-certified its results after two election canvassers flipped their previous decision to accept election results in Wayne county after facing immense pressure despite their misgivings. “The results were certified in Michigan on Tuesday, and Biden won,” Fisher pointed out.

“Now up on that stage with Giuliani was a big poster with the headline ‘Multiple paths to victory,’ but Giuliani never credibly explained a single path, let alone multiple ones,” Fisher continued.” The fact remains that the Trump campaign has yet to provide — at least in court — hard evidence of voter fraud and irregularities widespread enough to overturn the outcome of the election and to effectively challenge President-Elect Joe Biden’s stance as the president-elect.”

Another Fox News host, Tucker Carlson, came under fire for similar doubts. He also expressed skepticism in a monologue during Thursday’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Thursday broadcast where he alleged Powell did not provide any proof for her allegations. Powell said she did provide Carlson with affidavits from witnesses who had the mathematical evidence to prove problems with Dominion voting machine software, thus backing up her claims of fraud with the machines.

Whatever the outcome ultimately is, a troubling trend has emerged with Fox News repeatedly taking sides against Trump in his fight for the presidency. Fisher and Carlson are right to express a healthy mistrust of some of these claims, but it would be better to wait until all of the facts are in before completely undermining the process in advance; Fox owes that to their viewers, and to the president.
