Most of us have intuitively understood that while Fox News does offer some diversity of thought on its programming, the network as a whole is not to be trusted. Many of the network’s news anchors and reporters, and some of its commentary staffers, would be perfectly comfortable migrating over to CNN and MSNBC – and they’d fit right in. President Trump has noticed Fox’s downhill slide into liberal bias on more than one occasion.
More recently, there was a truly outrageous segment that you really have to see to believe. Two of Fox News’ panelists on a program told an esteemed former Republican Speaker of the House to shut his mouth and stop talking about George Soros.
I’ve been personally peeved with Fox News for years because they’ve blacklisted a number of the most important conservative thinkers and speakers from appearing on the network. When’s the last time you saw Ann Coulter on a Fox News segment? Been a while, hasn’t it? Same goes for Chris Farrell of Judicial Watch (more details on Farrell in a sec).
Two of the most influential and hilarious Trump supporters on the planet, Diamond and Silk, have also been kicked off the air at Fox News. They had been granted a one-hour show on Fox Nation, but the network kicked them off the air for asking questions about the Chinese coronavirus back in March. Think about that for a second: They were kicked off of a “news” network for asking questions about the virus.
So, I guess we shouldn’t be surprised that Fox News has now told author, former presidential candidate and former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich to shut up. The reason why this happened is pretty baffling.
Gingrich started telling Fox News hosts Melissa Francis and Harris Faulkner about the elephant in the room when it comes to the riots plaguing Democrat-run cities this year: George Soros. Gingrich correctly noted that Soros has been pumping tens of millions of dollars into District Attorney races across the country. Thanks to Soros’ cash, these cities have been electing radical, far-left DAs who hate the police and refuse to prosecute the hardened criminals conducting the riots, as well as progressive sheriffs and other important community figures.
There are a ton of examples of this. Soros helped elect Kim Foxx in Chicago, the DA who refused to prosecute Jussie Smollett for his hate hoax. Soros spent $2 million to unseat Sheriff Joe Arpaio in Arizona in 2016. Between 2015 and this year, Soros has spent at least $17 million in campaign contributions to far-left progressive DA candidates in Pennsylvania, Virginia, Illinois, New York, California, Arizona and other states.
He’s still doing it right now. Part of the reason why Los Angeles hasn’t been hit as hard by rioting this year is because the LA County District Attorney, Jackie Lacey, is a law-and-order Democrat (there are still a handful of them out there). But Jackie Lacey isn’t progressive enough to suit George Soros, so he’s pouring millions into that race right now.
This isn’t shocking information to anyone who’s been paying attention. Heck, it’s not even shocking news to Fox News viewers. Especially since Fox News reported on Soros’ cash-for-DA-races scheme back in 2018. A story that Fox News reported on the air a couple of years ago is now “verboten” to discuss on Fox News.
This is a really bizarre segment. If you haven’t seen it yet, watch as Newt Gingrich is told to shut his mouth by a pair of Fox News personalities, for daring to bring up George Soros’ role in the 2020 riots:
That’s quite an awkward pause there!
One of the ways that you can tell that what you’re hearing is true is by how quickly the elites will shut you down when you say something. That’s what you just saw in that Fox News clip. George Soros’s tentacles are all over the riots that have plagued America this summer. And now it looks like Soros’s tentacles are inside Fox News as well. The fact that they shut Newt Gingrich down like that tells you what Gingrich was saying is true.
Fox News owes Newt Gingrich and their viewers and explanation over this. If they’re a “fair and balanced” news station, why is a truthful mention of George Soros now banned? President Trump should ask them that as well, the next time he appears on the network.
