The former Democratic National Committee Chairwoman will offer political analysis across both FNC and Fox Business Network’s (FBN) daytime and primetime programming beginning today.
President Trump on Sunday lashed out at a trio of Fox News anchors, suggesting they should work at competitor CNN instead. Trump tagged Arthel Neville and Leland Vittert in a tweet and asked whether the weekend anchors were “trained by CNN prior to their ratings collapse.” “In any event, that’s where they should be working, along with their lowest rated anchor, Shepard Smith!” Trump added.
Jeanine Pirro is off Fox News prime time — and President Trump is not thrilled about it. Fox News removed Pirro’s program, Justice With Judge Jeanine, from its usual 9 p.m. time slot on Saturday, one week after the network took the rare step of publicly rebuking the host for an on-air monologue that questioned a Muslim lawmaker’s loyalty to the United States. Fox News declined to address the host’s status.
Fox News anchor’s Shepard Smith was the recipient of the Radio Television Digital News Foundation’s Leonard Zeidenberg First Amendment Award at a ceremony in Washington Wednesday, telling a crowd of Washington journalists that he was committed to the primary mission of journalism, which he said was being accurate, honest, thorough and fair, to never knowingly misinform, and to correct and apologize when the inevitable mistake happens.
Fox News and Tucker Carlson don’t want to talk about what Tucker Carlson said. They want to talk about his accuser, the liberal media watchdog group Media Matters for America.
The liberal advocacy group Media Matters for America this week released two batches of recordings Fox News Channel host Tucker Carlson made as a guest on a radio show where he made denigrating remarks about race and gender. It was timed to coincide with Fox’s first-ever sales meeting with advertisers on Wednesday. Media Matters says it wants to pressure Fox into better behavior by making advertisers aware of what is being said on the air. Carlson says critics want to shut Fox down.
