“The fake news is the enemy — it’s fake, it’s phony.”
Are people ever going to realize that Fox News — excluding Tucker Carlson, Lou Dobbs and Laura Ingraham — is just as bad as the rest of the fake news media?
From Fox News:
Fox News anchor Chris Wallace told that he is viewed as a “beacon for repression around the world” because of his repeated attacks against the press.
Wallace made the statement to Trump while conducting a sit-down interview with the president that was aired on Sunday. In it, Wallace pressed Trump about his rhetoric in regard to the media, noting that most presidents haven’t like the coverage of their administrations.
“No president has liked his press coverage … Nobody called it the enemy of the American people,” Wallace said.
“The fake news is the enemy — it’s fake, it’s phony,” Trump replied, before claiming that he doesn’t mind negative press coverage if he gets something wrong.
But Wallace pushed Trump on the topic, saying that “leaders in authoritarian countries like Russia, China, Venezuela, now repress the media using your words.”
After Trump said he can’t speak for other countries, Wallace stated that “you’re seen around the world as a beacon for repression.”
Trump continued to double down, saying that the coverage of him was “largely phony.”
