ANOTHER DUST UP BETWEEN TRUMP AND FOX NEWS …
As reported at The Hill, Donald Trump has put a moratorium on Fox News interviews. Donald Trump took to Twitter and tweeted … @FoxNews has been treating me very unfairly & I have therefore decided that I won’t be doing any more Fox shows for the foreseeable future. In essence Basically Fox News called Trump “stale” and “tiresome”. Hmm really? As the BPR opines, those are two words not normally associated with the man who energized Republican primary politics this year. Sorry, love Trump or hate him … support him, like his brashness or think he is the worst thing in the world, it is obvious these days that FOX News has become like its competitors that they have railed against in the MSM for so long. FOX News has an agenda for establishment Republicans and the Carl Rove types.
GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump said Wednesday he will not appear on Fox News programs “for the foreseeable future,” claiming he was unfairly treated.
Trump did not detail the alleged unfair treatment.
But Fox News said the “boycott” followed its cancellation of an appearance by the outspoken real estate mogul on Bill O’Reilly’s show on Thursday.
“At 11:45 am today, we canceled Donald Trump’s scheduled appearance on The O’Reilly Factor on Thursday, which resulted in Mr. Trump’s subsequent tweet about his ‘boycott’ of FOX News,” a Fox News spokesperson said in a statement.
“The press predictably jumped to cover his tweet, creating yet another distraction from any real issues that Mr. Trump might be questioned about,” the statement continued.
“When coverage doesn’t go his way, he engages in personal attacks on our anchors and hosts, which has grown stale and tiresome. He doesn’t seem to grasp that candidates telling journalists what to ask is not how the media works in this country,” the spokesperson added.
Trump targeted O’Reilly in a series of tweets on Monday night, saying O’Reilly featured the “same old Trump haters.”
