On Fox News Thursday, host Neil Cavuto laid into President Donald Trump for his executive order punishing social media companies for perceived “bias” against him.
“The president is saying that some of their liability protections should be waived when they do things that are not fair, in this case, to some things that he has said on Twitter,” said Cavuto. “What was shocking in those comments, he was open to shutting down Twitter — whatever your opinions, on the left or right, a huge social networking site, the largest on the planet — and that since it was fact-checking him, that’s good enough to crack down and maybe look at shutting down Twitter.”
Trump was only being fact-checked, Cavuto noted, “because he was wrong. He was being policed on that because he said that millions of ‘illegals’ were getting ballots, when that simply was not the case. So this isn’t a left/right issue, that was not the case. That was a wrong fact … some have said it was an outright lie.”
“You can check the fact checkers. They should be scrutinized,” said Cavuto. “But when you’re questioned on that, and they don’t pull your tweets down, that’s another matter.”
England pubs reopen on US Independence Day — after first nationwide closure since 1665’s Great Plague
The streets of Soho filled with merry drinkers in London on Saturday and the pubs of Manchester were packed as England's hospitality sector returned from a three-month coronavirus hiatus.
"It feels amazing," said Leo Richard Bill, a soldier, after getting through the door of one of London's buzziest restaurants on the Thames River's popular south bank.
"It’s been what, like three months since... me and everyone else haven’t been able to get outside and have a good time. So yeah, it feels good to get amongst it," he said.
Parts of London and other cities, deserted during lockdown, sprang to life as people dressed up and came out for "Super Saturday" -- the day England's hospitality sector reopened for the first time since March.
Trump’s angry words and Coronavirus surge darken Independence Day weekend in America
The United States marked an unusually somber Independence Day on Saturday, with President Donald Trump bashing domestic opponents and China -- but praising the country's coronavirus response, despite a record surge in cases.
Across the country, virus fears dampened or nixed Main Street parades, backyard barbecues and family reunions on a day when Americans typically celebrate their 1776 declaration of independence from Britain.
Instead of adopting a unifying tone, Trump -- facing a tough re-election and eager to mobilize his political base -- railed against protesters demanding racial justice after unarmed African American George Floyd was killed by a white police officer.
