Trump attacks Fox News, but the network remains silent

Carl Cameron, the former chief political correspondent for Fox News, argued that Trump was attacking the network, because he is a "cry-baby president who likes to bully instead of finding solutions". "I don't work for you", Cavuto said in the closing monologue of "Your World with Neil Cavuto".

"Fox News isn't supposed to work for you", Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume said.

"It is no surprise you're frustrated that more aren't in line with you and that everyone at Fox might not be in lockstep with you", said Cavuto, before clarifying that even if there are Fox News hosts who defend Trump, it doesn't mean that they work for him. "Just report on you".

President Donald Trump said in a message on Twitter that Fox News has let people down by giving the Democrats a platform to promote themselves and that his supporters should look for a new news outlet. Fox isn't working for us anymore!'

While the White House still gets encouragement, support and even advice from the channel's conservative morning and prime-time opinion hosts, Trump has begun to take aim at the occasional dissenting voices that appear during the day during straight news coverage.

"It is called being fair and balanced, Mr. President, yet it is fair to say you're not a fan when that balance includes stuff you don't like to hear or facts you don't like to have questioned".

Kilmeade then pointed out that Fox News, as well as him personally, have disagreed with Trump in the past with less objection from the president. And on Wednesday he fired Twitter salvos at morning anchor Sandra Smith - no relation to Shepard - for her uncritical sit-down with Democratic National Committee communications director Xochitl Hinojosa. He claimed Fox is "letting millions of GREAT people down" and said, "We have to start looking for a new News Outlet".

Excellent: Saaho Hindi Towards 70 Cr Weekend
Saaho starring Prabhas has taken the nation by storm with by crossing a milestone of 130 Cr worldwide at the box -office. Salman Khan's Bharat (Rs 42.3 crore) and Akshay Kumar's Mission Mangal (Rs 29.16 crore) still retain the top two spots.


Trump also attacked Fox News Sunday anchor Chris Wallace in May, arguing that Fox News "is moving more and more to the losing (wrong) side in covering the Dems", after the journalist interviewed 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Indiana.

Fox News had no comment on the tweets as it has made it a policy not to respond to the president's statements about its personalities. I also think he is getting sick of Fox.

Trump has long sung the praises of Fox News programs such as Fox and Friends, but has targeted the network before, though without the intensity and frequency he has applied to other outlets, including CNN and the New York Times. "I'm not the one who said tariffs are a wonderful thing; you are". CNN and MSNBC are all in for the open border socialists or beyond. "Our job is to keep score, not settle scores", he explained.

"No, I'm not happy", the president asserted.

Hannity and Ingraham, who are opinion show hosts, have consistently backed Trump, with Hannity even joining the president at a rally last November.

"You're entitled to your point of view, Mr. President, but you're not entitled to your own set of facts", Cavuto concluded. "Unfortunately just a free press", Cavuto said in closing.
