President Trump joined Dick Morris on Newsmax TV on Saturday night where he again tore into FOX News and the growing anti-Trump bias at the network.
This was not the first time Trump hit FOX News and its anti-Trump hosts like Chris Wallace.
Dick Morris: Now, an awful lot of FOX News viewers have stopped watching FOX and are now tuning into Newsmax. Why is that? Why do you think they left FOX?
President Trump: Well, FOX has been a lot different. And I think they’re coming back a bit. But FOX has certainly been a lot different than it’s been in 2016. One of the biggest differences in the election, even though I won 75 million votes, one of the biggest differences, which is far more than I won the first time when you think about it. If you look at how FOX, how they did versus how they did in 2016, it was day and night. A big difference and people are very angry about it.
Dick Morris: Do you think it’s because they have people like Mike (Chris) Wallace as their senior correspondent and Paul Ryan on their board?
President Trump: No, he’d like to be Mike Wallace, that’s his father, that’s Chris Wallace… Yeah, he was disastrous. He was your basic disaster. He’s just a very negative guy. And the people don’t want to hear that. That’s why they tune out.
With so much of the media already biased toward liberalism and supporting Democrats, former President Donald Trump noted an ideological shift at Fox News that left conservative Americans “angry.”
“If you look at Fox at how they did, versus how they did in 2016, it was day and night,” Trump tells Saturday’s “Dick Morris Democracy” in an exclusive interview to air on Newsmax at 7:30 p.m. ET.
“A big difference, and people are very angry about it.”
During an infamous, watershed moment on Election Night, Fox News called the state of Arizona for Joe Biden, projecting numbers from Maricopa County that had yet to have been tabulated. By comparison, Newsmax’s coverage that night warned it was too early and the state was still too close to call.
Trump campaign staffers have often noted in the rehashing of election coverage that moment helped turn what seemed to be a positive night for Trump’s reelection chances into a path of victory for Biden. Votes were still to be cast, counted, and – to the dismay of free and fair election advocates – mail-in ballots in some key battleground states like Pennsylvania were still permitted to be received.
Maricopa County, Arizona, is currently under a “forensic” audit of its 2020 election results, which Trump hailed earlier this week on Newsmax’s “Cortes & Pellegrino” as expected to bear fruit of evidence of voter fraud.
