In the ongoing battle between Fox, Rupert Murdoch and Donald Trump, things are taking a turn for the worse. It now appears several of Fox News top hosts will be fired due to the legal dispute, and as one news source has said: “Relations have been rocky before. But the punches being thrown now are particularly aggressive”.
As per Politico, In his very first segment onstage at CPAC this Friday, Steve Bannon identified one of his targets of the moment – an entity which he claimed is opposing Donald J. Trump’s presidential campaign at its own peril: Fox News.
The host of the popular War Room podcast and longtime Trump hand started by ripping the conservative channel for announcing that Joe Biden had won Arizona on election night in 2020.
“Fox News illegitimately called it for the opposition, and not Donald J. Trump,” the Trump adviser-turned-talk show host told the crowd in National Harbor, Maryland, an audience full of diehard MAGA supporters.
Ten minutes in, Bannon attacked the network again. He called out Fox for not having Trump on since he announced his campaign in November. He also called out Rupert Murdoch, owner of Fox.
“Murdoch, you’ve deemed Trump’s not going to be president,” Bannon continued as the crowd roared with applause. “But we deem that you’re not going to have a network, because we’re going to fight you every step of the way.”
