Fox & Friends brutally mocked for complaining 60 Minutes interviewer ‘peppered’ Trump with questions

Published

on

Fox News Monday morning did its usual propaganda pitch for President Trump, defending the lying leader’s responses during his rare “60 Minutes” interview which aired Sunday night.

Fox & Friends” host Ainsley Earhardt told viewers, “people — many Republicans thought it was disrespectful and obnoxious,” referring to “60 Minutes” veteran journalist Leslie Stahl asking actually questions of the President of the United States, and expecting actual answers.

“Many people thought it made him look better because he did answer everything correctly,” she claimed, albeit falsely. “But she gave a tough interview, and when you’re a journalist, you want to ask tough, fair questions. Many people had a problem, though, with the fact that she was interrupting him a good bit.”

Stahl interrupted Trump when he lied. Good journalists are supposed to do that (cc: Chuck Todd, who should take notes.)

“Hats off to President Trump, who will go up against any journalist, even the ones who aren’t in favor of him, and answer all the questions,” Earhardt said, falsely.

Trump, since he admitted to NBC News’ Lester Holt that he fired Comey to end the Russia investigation, has all but never given an interview to any outlet that is not pro-Trump.

“It’s been a while since we’ve seen Trump’s rhetoric challenged in any significant way in a television interview,” The Washington Post’s Philip Bump said in an analysis of some of the questions asked and answers Trump gave during the interview.

Earhardt doubled down on Twitter, where there are actual people with reality-based opinion, unlike her fellow Fox News sycophants.

She tweeted that Trump was “peppered endlessly” with questions from Lesley Stahl during the “60 Minutes” interview.

Earhardt apparently was surprised – and dismayed – when the internet did not fall in line with her spin.

She deleted the tweet after being mocked – take a look at some of the responses:

The media’s ‘Made in America’ problem: Trump creates racist controversy — and gets free campaign coverage

Published

on

Let’s presume, however depressing that notion may be, that mainstream news organizations will continue to fumble the ball when it comes to directly calling blatantly racist statements coming out of Donald Trump’s mouth what they are, which is racist.

Let’s also presume that in the fallout of such incidents like Trump’s racist tweets on Sunday, media organizations adopt predictable stances. Most struggle to maintain a sense of equanimity and fairness when it comes to calling out Trump’s racism. Fox amplifies it.

Longtime Trump loyalist warns the president that his racist tweets are about to permanently stain his image

Published

On Tuesday, former Trump administration official Anthony Scaramucci criticized President Trump for telling four freshman congresswomen to go back to their own countries. All four are American citizens.

Scaramucci accused the president of playing to his base, in a way that has dangerous manifestations: for the president and the country.

“He’s blowing very hard on a dog-whistle that every ethnic group that’s landed in the United States has had to hear,” Scaramucci told the BBC.

“I don’t think the president is a racist, but here’s the thing: if you continue to say and act in that manner, then we all have to look at him and say, ‘OK, well, maybe you weren’t a racist, but now you’re turning into one.'”
