Fox News attempted to censor White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany by cutting away from her press conference. Fox Host Neil Cavuto cut away from McEnany while she made claims of voter fraud because he says such claims are “unsupported.” This is the latest blunder by Fox News after the outlet was the first to call Arizona for Joe Biden, who had not yet won the state.

There’s only one party in America trying to keep observers out of the count room. You don’t take these positions because you want an honest election.” pic.twitter.com/b4w7pa9D23

As a @FoxNews viewer (and occasional guest) I don’t understand why viewers can’t see @kayleighmcenany make the same arguments at 4:45 p.m. ET that @JasonMillerinDC makes later at 7:05 p.m. ET. What’s the justification for cutting away the first time?

Rightfully, the media called out Fox News for the decision.
Cutting @kayleighmcenany off the air was so disrespectful and total political bias. Our media is becoming a North Korean, China combo. Disaster. Thank you @kayleighmcenany for always speaking the truth. 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

It’s close there. And it could be flipped by Trump. Yes, MSNBC’s Steve Kornacki made that point, which caused host Rachel Maddow to panic. A Democrat runs Fox News’ polling and election desk operation. And they said there’s no way Trump can win. Well, he can. They’re wrong. The votes haven’t been counted, and when MSNBC or CNN hasn’t called it yet, you know that’s a red flag.
The Trump team has already stated their plans to request ballot recounts in multiple battleground states like Arizona and Georgia. Trump and his team have also filed legal action in battleground states like Pennsylvania Michigan over voter fraud allegations.
