Tucker Carlson Blasts Fox News For Cutting Away From Kayleigh McEnany Press Conference

Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson took a subtle shot at his own network after colleague Neil Cavuto cut away from a press conference held by White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany.

The press conference, held in Washington, D.C. on Monday, featured McEnany and RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel discussing Pennsylvania litigation and an overview of the post-Election Day landscape.

Fox, who received an extraordinary amount of criticism for prematurely calling the presidential race in Arizona, something even the New York Times said “changed the tenor of the night,” aired the presser initially.

McEnany claimed that the Trump campaign “want(s) every legal vote to be counted, and we want every illegal vote …” before Cavuto interjected.

Will you support Joe Biden as president?

 

“Whoa, whoa, whoa – I just think we have to be very clear,” he said.

“She’s charging the other side as welcoming fraud and welcoming illegal voting,” Cavuto continued. “Unless she has more details to back that up, I can’t in good countenance continue to show you this.”

 

Tucker Carlson Rips Network For Cutting Away From Kayleigh McEnany

During his Monday night broadcast, Carlson took a subtle jab at Cavuto and his own network for making the decision to cut away from McEnany.

“In a democracy, you can’t ignore honest questions from citizens,” Carlson said.

“You can’t dismiss them out of hand as crazy or immoral for asking,” he continued. “You can’t just cut away from coverage you don’t like.”

It isn’t simply the accuracy of the charges that are newsworthy. The fact that people are legitimately asking these questions itself is newsworthy.

Earlier in the monologue, Tucker said: “If after all the questions have been answered it becomes clear that Joe Biden is a legitimate winner of the presidential election, we will accept that and encourage others to accept it too.”

 

What is Going on With Fox News?

President Trump’s campaign was furious with Fox News for what they considered a premature call of Arizona in favor of Joe Biden.

They went so far as to describe the network’s Decision Desk director Arnon Mishkin “a Clinton-voting, Biden-donating Democrat.”

 

Carlson seemingly didn’t like his network’s actions that night either.

“I’m not privy to the math, I’m not certain how, even after the explanation from Chris Stirewalt, how that decision was made,” Carlson criticized.

“I think our viewers trust us, but people are concerned.”

 

Right now, Tucker Carlson is the gold standard in media and commentary, averaging 5.36 million viewers in October.

If he is growing leery of some of the decisions being made by his network, perhaps Fox News may need to reevaluate the kind of product they’re putting out for the American people.

  1. Why do we all clutch our pearls whenever the known Leftist shills at FNC shill for the Left!? FNC as gone native–and they did it years ago. This simply isn’t news. If the CNN-esque behavior of Cavuto or Wallace (or many other Fox “reporters”) shocks you, then you haven’t been paying attention. Go watch OAN for heaven’s sake.

  2. I stopped watching FOX after the smarmy little p***k Shep Smith kept wearing his liberalism in his reports. It’s been almost a decade that I gave up on them, and they just keep running further and further away from their roots. I sent an email pointing out how Smith was being an a** and Neil Cavuto replied to the email…I always suspected that him and Shep shared a computer at their little intimate lovenest.

  3. The root of your writing whilst sounding agreeable at first, did not really work perfectly with me personally after some time. Somewhere within the paragraphs you managed to make me a believer unfortunately just for a short while. I still have got a problem with your leaps in assumptions and one might do nicely to help fill in all those gaps. In the event you can accomplish that, I would undoubtedly end up being impressed.

  4. Hello! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could locate a captcha plugin for my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having trouble finding one? Thanks a lot!
