As more of the mainstream media attempts to convince Americans that former Vice President Joe Biden is the clear-cut winner of the 2020 presidential election, many networks are going as far as cutting away from coverage of President Donald Trump’s top officials.
Unfortunately, that recently happened on Fox News and the network’s highly-rated primetime host, Tucker Carlson, of “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” took a sharp jab at one of his colleagues for cutting away from a press conference that was provided by White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany.
On Monday, McEnany and Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel gave a press conference to update the current happenings with Trump’s election-related litigation. As Fox News cameras immediately cut to the presser to carry it live, the moment McEnany used the word “fraud,” Fox News host Neil Cavuto immediately cut away.
“Unless she has more details to back that up, I can’t in good countenance continue showing you this,” Cavuto said as part of his reasoning that his team pulled away from the live update.
Not surprisingly, later that night Carlson made clear at the opening of his show that Democracy in America is under attack on multiple fronts, including by the mainstream media, who have seemingly banded together to prop up and defend Biden at all costs.
After warning of the consequences of a nation full of voters who no longer believe that American democracy is real or honest, Carlson dropped a bomb on his Fox News colleague for his actions earlier that day, actions that effectively silenced the other side.
“In a democracy, you can’t ignore honest questions from citizens. … You can’t dismiss them out of hand as crazy or immoral for asking. You can’t just cut away from coverage you don’t like,” Carlson said.
The backlash on social media from what used to be loyal Fox News viewers has exponentially grown over the past week.
According to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, Fox News first came under heavy fire from its viewers on election day when the network was the first to make a controversial call that Biden was the winner of the traditionally red state of Arizona.
Luckily, the network still has a few free-thinking hosts, like Carlson, who aren’t afraid to call out their employers for their actions. There’s no telling how much longer they’ll be able to do that, however, as many believe Fox News appears to be quickly veering left.
