On Monday night, Fox News contributor Guy Benson had some harsh criticisms for Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) over her release of a DNA test that might prove some Native American heritage. Early in the morning, Warren publicized the findings of her DNA results which suggest that she may have a 6th-10th generation Native American ancestor, making her anywhere from 1/64th-1/1024th Native American. However, as The Boston Globe reported, the test relied on Mexican, Colombian, and Peruvian DNA instead of actual Native American DNA. Well, Benson had a lot to say about it. “There’s a very real possibility that Donald Trump is more Native American than Elizabeth Warren,” Benson told Fox News anchor Bret Baier. “I think he should take the test himself and just troll her if that’s the case because it’s possible.” Benson insisted that Warren wanted to “rip off this band-aid” as soon as possible before her Continue reading "Guy Benson: ‘There’s a Very Real Possibility’ That Trump is ‘More Native American Than Elizabeth Warren’"
Fox News contributor Juan Williams says that there’s pretty much no distinction at this point between his network and President Trump‘s administration. Williams spoke to Hill TV on Monday, and Krystal Ball got the conversation started when she remarked that the “lines between Fox News and this White House are blurry at best.” “Blurry?” Williams asked, which prompted Ball to go further and say “they are joined at the hip.” She also remarked on how Fox ends up perpetuating many of the “cultural flashpoint” that end up getting attention in the sociopolitical conversation. Williams went on to say that he considers it his function at Fox to push back on his conservative-leaning colleagues to generate political conversation. Ball eventually called Fox a “propaganda network” and asked Williams if he ever expressed concern to the outlet’s higher-ups about the blurred line between them and Trump. “I don’t Continue reading "Fox News’ Juan Williams: There’s No Real Separation Between Fox and Trump Admin"
Fox News commentator Melissa Francis questioned if the Saudi government is actually behind the disappearance of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi, who Turkish intelligence services believe was killed in Turkey by the gulf state regime. She made the remarks during a Fox News segment today that began with judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano explaining why President Donald Trump’s remarks on the controversy are problematic. “He’s basically saying, this didn’t happen here, why should we be concerned about it?” Napolitano said. “We should be concerned about it because of Khashoggi’s status, A, as a journalist, and B, as a lawful american resident, when the president says the king doesn’t know anything about it, the king is probably telling the truth but the president is asking the wrong person.” “Can I just jump in for a second? Because you are assuming that the Saudis did it, and we don’t necessarily [know that],” Continue reading "Fox News’s Melissa Francis Questions if Saudis Killed Missing Journalist: There Are Quieter Ways to Dispose of a Body"
Fox & Friends host Brian Kilmeade and NRATV’s Dan Bongino voiced concern over a violent revolution starting after actor Alec Baldwin called for Democrats to vote out the current GOP government. “In an orderly and formal way, and lawful way, we need to overthrow the government of the United States under Donald Trump,” the Saturday Night Live star said while speaking to New Hampshire’s Democratic Party. “How unbelievable is it that the people that the Democratic Party New Hampshire fundraising arm thought that Alec Baldwin would have the right message?” Kilmeade said while responding to the clip of Baldwin’s speech. “Do you think that’s the right message for Democrats — to overthrow the government?” Bongino, a three-times failed congressional candidate and a former NYPD cop, voiced similar worry over Baldwin’s rhetoric. “I don’t know who I am more embarrassed for, Alec Baldwin or as you guys just said the Democrat Continue reading "Fox & Friends Fears Alec Baldwin Wants Violent Revolution After He Calls to Vote Out GOP"
The hosts of Fox and Friends were not exactly thrilled with Saturday Night Live‘s depiction of the Kanye West‘s meeting with Donald Trump in the Oval Office. In fact, they found it a bit insulting to Trump supporters. After showing a clip of SNL’s latest cold open, host Pete Hegseth kvetched, “They use comedy to push an agenda.” He added: “If you support this president you are either crazy or you’re racist. Those are the two boxes! And because Kanye can’t be racist, then he’s got to be crazy.” Hegseth — who admitted the sketch was at least a little funny — also slammed the sketch show for bringing West’s mental health into it, an issue he said they “they take seriously all day long until it’s about time to make fun of someone who is being open, earnest and honest with the president of Continue reading "Fox Hosts Rip SNL for Slamming Trump Supporters: ‘You are Either Crazy, Racist or Dumb’"
On CNN’s Reliable Sources on Sunday, host Brian Stelter addressed briefly the move to Fox PR by former Trump administration official Hope Hicks, as part of a larger segment on Donald Trump‘s media moves recently and his relationship with Fox News. First in the clip above the panel discussed Fox News pulling their entrance-to-exit coverage of Trump rallies, which Stelter noted was obviously a business decision, and how that has affected the Trump PR calculus. Politico White House Reporter Gabby Orr noted that Trump has been calling in to Fox News shows more in the last week, and giving more interviews to other outlets in the wake of Fox’s decision not to air his rallies in their entirety, something CNN and MSNBC stopped doing some time ago. She said that Trump is obviously frustrated, and that Communications Director Bill Shine is frustrated as they scramble to find other Continue reading "CNN’s Reliable Sources on Hope Hicks and Bill Shine: The Fox ‘Revolving Door’ with Trump Admin ‘Very Real’"
Though Kanye West has been hit with a wave backlash for last week’s Oval Office visit with President Donald Trump, not everyone in the media feels the rapper deserved the criticism. Appearing on Fox News’ MediaBuzz Sunday, Jedediah Bila, a former co-host on The View, went as far as calling the reaction a “media meltdown.” “Whether you like Kanye or not, there has been a character assassination against this guy,” she said. “You don’t have to agree with everything he says, but you do have to defend his right to say it. He just like every other celebrity that has walked into that White House from a former administration has a right to, if he has a platform, to make his voice heard. There’s no reason why he should be described as all those horrible things.” CNN’s Don Lemon ruffled feathers Thursday during his commentary Continue reading "Jedediah Bila Slams Kanye Critics: ‘There Has Been a Character Assassination Against This Guy’"
