It was bad enough that Fox News called Arizona for Joe Biden with skimpy evidence, but it was an outrage that Neil Cavuto refused to air allegations of wrongdoing against the Biden campaign on the grounds that the evidence was skimpy.
This isn’t the first time that Fox host Cavuto has tried to undermine President Trump, (here’s his malpractice over COVID), but it’s the most blatant.
On Monday, Cavuto halted coverage of White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany’s press conference alleging irregularities and fraud in the presidential election.
In talking about the lack of transparency and rush to declare Biden the winner, McEnany said, “You take these positions because you are welcoming fraud and you are welcoming illegal voting.”
That was too much for Cavuto.
“Whoa, whoa, whoa. I just think we have to be very clear: she’s charging the other side as welcoming fraud and illegal voting. Unless she has more details to back that up, I can’t in good countenance continue to show you this,” Cavuto said.
You Fake News fraud!
Since when do legitimate news organizations refuse to air both sides of a breaking news controversy until all the evidence is presented?
Oops, I said “legitimate” news organizations, so that leaves Fox out, but the answer is NEVER!
This is rapidly becoming the story of the century — surpassing even the Russia Hoax — and yet Fox News can’t be bothered to cover it. Why would Fox News want to cover the opinion of the president of the United States about his belief that the election was stolen from him.
Calling Arizona early was frustrating for Trump supporters, but it’s not the first time a network tried to Bigfoot an election. But outright censoring the news and preventing one side of a story from being told violates the very central premise of reporting.
You don’t just tell one side of the story. That’s what got CNN sued in the Covington case, and it’s what is going to cost Fox News millions of viewers.
