There is major pushback against Fox News coming from viewers across the country after the network called Arizona for Joe Biden on election night. Anchor Brett Baier is also under fire for deleting a tweet that was solely intended to promote an upcoming show.

“Join me + @marthamaccallum tonight 8pmET on @FoxNews,” Baier said. That tweet was followed by tons of negative comments mostly from people who claim to have lost faith in the network. “Nope – done with Fox,” read one tweet. “I’d rather get another vasectomy without anesthesia sir,” said another person.

Fox News is facing stiff competition from Newsmax and One America News Network (OAN), however the two things that those networks do not have are Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson. Those shows outranked every network from 8 to 11 p.m. from June to July.“Fox’s ratings will likely remain high until the presidential election is resolved, but I am truly interested to see what happens after,” said a viewer on Twitter.

News Media Reacts To Dinesh D’Souza’s Claim of ‘2000 Mules’ Being Suppressed

’Souza has a new film called “2,000 Mules,” and he’s going after Fox News host Tucker Carlson and Newsmax, accusing them of suppressing his movie.

Dinesh D’Souza has a new film called “2,000 Mules”  which allegedly exposes widespread, coordinated voter fraud in the 2020 election. But earning press for the film has been harder than expected. D’Souza claims Fox News host Tucker Carlson has tried to suppress his movie. 

“I’m sorry to say Tucker Carlson and his team specifically instructed Catherine Engelbrecht of True the Vote NOT to mention the movie,” D’Souza tweeted.

True the Vote, the Texas-based non-profit organization that provided the analysis D’Souza based his movie on, declared that 2,000 “mules” were paid by Democratic representatives to gather and drop off ballots in multiple states.

D’Souza also took to Twitter to share that Newsmax blocked coverage of the film too. The director had been booked to appear on the channel, but the appearance was later cancelled.

The AP provided their fact-checking for the film calling it a flick “based on faulty assumptions, anonymous accounts, and improper analysis of cellphone location data, which is not precise enough to confirm that somebody deposited a ballot into a dropbox, according to experts.”

Nonetheless, here’s what some in the news media are saying about the film:

Piers Morgan: When You Interview Donald Trump, You Have to Keep Going

Morgan drew the ire of Trump for the way he promoted their exclusive interview that aired weeks ago.

Talk show host Piers Morgan joined the “The Megyn Kelly Show” on SiriusXM Monday to discuss his beef with former President Donald Trump. Morgan drew the ire of Trump for the way he promoted their exclusive interview that aired weeks ago. 

Trump ridiculed Morgan during a rally this past weekend calling him, “over the hill” and accusing him of creating a false narrative during the interview. Trump also accused Morgan of using him to boost his ratings and said that after their interview the “Uncensored” show tanked. 

Morgan joked that he always wanted to be one of Trump’s “rally targets.” He also blamed Nigel Farage, a British broadcaster and former politician for pitting Trump against Morgan before the interview. 

“Farage works for a rival network of mine here in the UK,” Morgan said. “He deliberately tried to sabotage the interview by sending Trump all the very critical things I’ve said about him in the last year of his presidency.” 

Morgan told Kelly that he’s always tried to be fair with Trump despite the former president’s insistence that the 2020 election was stolen from him. Morgan said that the promo he ran leading up to his interview was fair and didn’t depict something that didn’t actually happen. 

“With Donald Trump, when you’re interviewing him, you just keep on going until he says stop, it doesn’t matter what his aides tell you. The promo I did was very much in the style of the Apprentice, where I tried to make it as exciting and as tantalizing as possible.”

Donald Trump hosted “The Apprentice” for 14 seasons.
