Donald Trump told one truth about Fox News that left his supporters upset
Fox News Channel continues to come under fire.
But this time the attacks aren’t coming from the Left.
Instead, Donald Trump told one truth about Fox News that left his supporters upset.
While flying to Texas, Donald Trump tweeted that the daytime coverage of Fox News was “unwatchable.”
I was on Air Force One flying to the Great State of Texas, where I just landed. It is AMAZING in watching @FoxNews how different they are from four years ago. Not even watchable. They totally forgot who got them where they are!

Trump later criticized Fox News for getting a story wrong about federal law enforcement agents withdrawing from Portland.
“FoxNews reported incorrectly what the Federal Government is doing with respect to Portland. We are demanding that the Governor & Mayor do their job or we will do it for them. To complicated to discuss in a Tweet, but bad reporting by Fox (possibly on purpose!),” President Trump posted on social media.
Fox News always tried to fight back against its critics in the liberal media that accuse the network of being “state TV” by claiming the daytime programming is straight news compared to the opinion programming that airs during primetime.
But Donald Trump is calling Fox out claiming the daytime programming is the same type of left-wing opinion journalism being passed off for “straight news” like that on fake news CNN and MSNBC.
This news is not good for America.
Viewers used to be able to count on Fox News to provide fair and balanced coverage that pushed back on the Fake News Media’s automatic anti-Trump and anti-conservative bias.
But Donald Trump is warning viewers that Fox News may be moving away from that model.
