When CNN reporter Kaitlan Collins was removed from an event at the White House last July after shouting a series of questions at President Donald Trump, Fox News stood in “strong solidarity” with her and her network. But despite the DNC banning Fox News from hosting Democratic debates, CNN has yet to defend its fellow news network. “We stand in strong solidarity with CNN for the right to full access for our journalists as part of a free and unfettered press,” Fox News president Jay Wallace told TheWrap via statement. Fox News anchor Bret Baier also tweeted his support. Similarly, when CNN White House Correspondent Jim Acosta’s White House press pass was suspended last November after he refused to give his microphone to an intern during a press conference, Fox News was quick to defend its fellow news network over what it considered a fundamental press freedom, and even filed an amicus brief on CNN’s behalf. “FOX News supports CNN in … [Read more...] about Fox News Defended CNN Against The White House — CNN Didn’t Return The Favor Over DNC Ban

Kimberly Guilfoyle didn’t take her usual spot on “The Five” Friday afternoon after it was reported that the longtime Fox News host would be parting ways with the network. Not only did sources tell DailyMail.com that Guilfoyle was purposefully not given the chance to say goodbye to co-hosts and viewers Friday, but HuffPost also reported that her departure from the network was not “voluntary.” “Fox News has parted ways with Kimberly Guilfoyle,” a Fox News spokesperson said in a statement. Guilfoyle’s lawyer directly challenged the notion that she was “unceremoniously dumped” as Daily Mail reported. “As FoxNews noted in statement earlier today, Ms. Guilfoyle and the network have agreed to part ways. That agreed-upon parting of ways has not yet been finalized, has been under discussion for an extended period of time, and is entirely mutual and amicable,” Thomas A. Clare wrote in an email to the Daily Caller, with … [Read more...] about Conflicting Reports Emerge About Guilfoyle’s Fox News Exit — Host Replaced Friday
Fox News and MSNBC are disputing whether Sean Hannity or Rachel Maddow took the No. 1 slot in cable news viewership last month. Both networks released statements on Tuesday, citing Nielsen data, claiming that their respective anchors won in prime time and had a bigger share of the coveted adults 25-54 demographic. MSNBC says that Maddow averaged 549,000 A25-54 viewers per night and 3.1 million viewers overall. On the other hand, Fox says Hannity brought in an audience of 575,000 A25-54, and his grand total was 3.165 million. Industry sources tell Mediaite that the discrepancy is the result of Fox News excluding “specials,” or days when substitute anchors fill in for Hannity. MSNBC, on the other hand, does include numbers from when Hannity is not on the air. That means that Fox News is counting nights when Hannity himself goes up against Maddow, while MSNBC is counting all weekdays of the month. The other major show at 9 p.m. appears to be finding its niche. Cuomo Prime Time … [Read more...] about Who’s No. 1, Hannity Or Maddow? Fox News and MSNBC Both Claim Ratings Victory in February
Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA), the 38-year-old House member from California, has only met President Trump once. But as he tells it, the commander in chief immediately recognized him when they came face-to-face. It was at Trump’s first address to the joint session of Congress and a group of Democrats greeted the president before the speech. “I happened to be the last person in the line,” Swalwell told The Daily Beast in an interview. “I brought a letter to give to him from a Muslim constituent who had concerns about his Muslim ban. And as I’m handing him the letter, he looks at me and goes, ‘I know who you are. I’ve seen you on TV.’” The night before, Swalwell appeared on Tucker Carlson’s prime-time Fox News show. It was an unlikely place to find a liberal Democrat from California. But not necessarily for Swalwell. The congressman has made a personal effort to do more conservative media and is hoping others in his party will do … [Read more...] about Fox News Loves Trump. Dems Want to Complicate That Marriage.
The media was furious after Donald Trump refused to take a question from a CNN reporter at his first press conference as president-elect Wednesday. (Photos: Getty Images) He blasted the network as “fake news” after it reported on an unsubstantiated 35-page document that claims Trump is being blackmailed by the Russian government. “Don’t be rude,” Trump told Jim Acosta when he tried to ask a question. “No, I’m not going to give you a question. You are fake news.” The press was incensed, but why did Barack Obama not generate the same outrage when he repeatedly criticized Fox News and questioned its legitimacy over the last eight years? (Photo: Reuters) In 2010, he said the network promoted a “destructive viewpoint.” “I think Fox is part of that tradition — it is part of the tradition that has a very clear, undeniable point of view,” Obama said during an interview with Rolling Stone. “It’s … [Read more...] about The Media Is Outraged That Trump Criticized CNN.
