Kari Lake Leaving KSAZ in Phoenix

“The media needs more balance in coverage and a wider range of viewpoints represented in every newsroom, at every level and in each position.”

An award-winning Phoenix news anchor said she is leaving her television station job after 22 years because she does not like contributing to the fear and division in this country. Kari Lake began her career as a reporter at KSAZ Fox-10 in the early 1990’s.

“Sadly, journalism has changed a lot since I first stepped into a newsroom – and I’ll be honest: I don’t like the direction it’s going,” said Lake. “The media needs more balance in coverage and a wider range of viewpoints represented in every newsroom, at every level and in each position.”

In 2019, Lake dropped the F-bomb on a Facebook Live that appeared to be started too early. She was referring to Phoenix News Times who she later called “a rag for selling marijuana.”

Lake explained that her decision did not come without serious thought. “It’s been a serious struggle for me, and I no longer want to do this job anymore. So, I’ve decided the time is right to do something else and I’m leaving Fox 10.”

Lake also explained that the media’s bias, dishonestly and encouragement of fear and division has robbed her of the pride she once took in her profession.

“In the past few years, I haven’t felt proud to be a member of the media. I am sure there are other journalists out there who feel the same way. I found myself reading news copy that I did not believe was fully truthful – or only told part of the story.”

“A legal matter with this network and the two election workers has been resolved to the mutual satisfaction of the parties through a fair and reasonable settlement.”

Freeman and her daughter, Moss, state they faced harassment online and in person following unfounded rumors that began circulating online due to content published by the conspiracy website The Gateway Pundit, which the pair also sued.

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:
