Fox News cut host Neil Cavuto from Trump’s campaign press conference after the discussion shifted to voter fraud, and on Monday evening, Fox News host Tucker Carlson blasted the news network because of this.
“We live in a country where a large part of our population no longer believes that our democracy is real. That is sad. It is also dangerous. It could easily get worse. What we are doing in response is hardly the solution. It is making our country much more volatile and setting us up for something bad.”
A few moments later, he turned his attention to his own news network.
“In a democracy, you can’t ignore honest questions from citizens,” Carlson said. “You can’t dismiss them out of hand is crazy or immoral for asking. You can’t just cut away from coverage you don’t like.”
Earlier on the same day, Fox News host Neil Cavuto cut off White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany when she started outlining the Trump campaign’s alleged voter fraud case.
“Whoa, whoa, whoa. I just think we have to be very clear… She’s charging the other side as welcoming fraud and illegal voting, unless she has more details to back that up, I can’t in good countenance continue to show you this,” Cavuto said.
