Fox News host Neil Cavuto wasted no time tearing into President Donald Trump over the commander-in-chief’s escalating attacks on the conservative network.
Cavuto’s response came after Trump tweeted to his supporters that Fox “isn’t working for us anymore.”
The Hill’s Joe Concha reports:
“Well I think the president watches Fox,” Cavuto began. “I also think he is getting sick of Fox. Which is weird because I think he gets pretty fair coverage at Fox.”
After reading Trump’s tweet, Cavuto said, “first of all Mr. President, we don’t work for you. I don’t work for you. My job is to cover you, not fawn over you or rip you. Just report on you.”
Cavuto said his job as a journalist covering business and the economy in particular was to report on economic numbers when they are good and bad, and when trade talks are going poorly and when it looks like there will be a deal.
“It is called being fair and balanced Mr. President,” Cavuto said. “Yet it is fair to say you’re not a fan when that balance includes stuff you don’t like to hear or facts you don’t like to have questioned.”
