‘Fox & Friends’ Goes Ballistic Over ‘Biased’ YouTube Banning Videos Promoting Election Fraud Lies



“Fox & Friends” host Brian Kilmeade is furious over YouTube’s decision to ban videos that promote the lie that there was widespread election fraud that handed the election to Joe Biden.

“Big tech YouTube is the latest to decide that any conversations or postings about election fraud is not going to be posted on YouTube,” Kilmeade ranted.

Kilmeade has the facts wrong.

“More than a month after the U.S. presidential election,” the AP reports, “YouTube says it will start removing newly uploaded material that claims widespread voter fraud or errors changed the outcome.”

Kilmeade wrongly claimed YouTube was banning “any conversations or postings about election fraud.”

“I’m very disappointed,” Kilmeade continued, claiming an interview he conducted would be banned. “But in all seriousness, it’s unbelievable the way these big tech companies are flat out taking the incoming and being biased because they just want the outcome. The outcome is Joe Biden is president,” he admitted. “And this is more of an example of them doing it.”

Fox News Hires ‘Unofficial Member of the Team’ Lara Trump Despite Her ‘Absolutely’ Considering US Senate Run



Fox News has hired yet another person extremely close to former President Donald Trump, Lara Trump, despite saying last week she “absolutely” is considering a U.S. Senate run that her father-in-law himself has been promoting.

The “Fox & Friends” crew welcomed Lara Trump to the “family” Monday morning as a new Fox News contributor, with two of the three co-hosts applauding her.

“I’m so excited to be joining the Fox family,” Lara Trump told viewers. “I sort of feel like I’ve been an unofficial member of the team for so long.”

Trump, a former TV producer, worked on both the Trump 2016 and 2020 campaigns in various roles including fundraising.

Trump is fresh off a public relations disaster after news broke she reportedly has been funneling nearly $2 million from a dog rescue non-profit into the Trump resorts, most recently via a fundraiser that may have been the catalyst for shutting parts of Mar-a-Lago down after a coronavirus outbreak.

News organizations and media outlets, even including Fox News, usually immediately part ways with employees who publicly acknowledge they are considering entering politics. It is a stark departure for Fox News to hire someone who just confirmed they are considering a run for the U.S. Senate.

Media Matters’ Director of Media Intelligence, Lis Power weighed in

Fox News Furious Biden Wasn’t Pouring Praise on Trump: ‘Every Time He Has a Chance – He Kicks ‘Em in the Groin’



Fox News’ Brian Kilmeade expressed anger and upset Friday morning while attacking President Joe Biden for not pouring praise on his predecessor but kicking him “in the groin,” while delivering his first address to the nation Thursday night.

“We don’t need to go over the 500,000 dead, we had that moment. Let’s talk about the future moving forward. Every time he has a chance to praise the previous administration, he not only doesn’t praise, he kicks ’em in the groin,” the “Fox & Friends” host complained, misrepresenting the number of Americans who have died from the coronavirus. The real number is about 540,000.

As most Americans experienced, practically every news conference from practically every Trump administration official began with or included strong criticism of the Obama administration. President Trump criticized his predecessor on a regular basis, and made up lies blaming him for a wide variety of problems that were actually created by his own administration. In fact, Voice of America, the independent international news agency funded by Congress reported that through the end of August 2019 Trump tweeted criticism of Obama 246 times. (Other examples here, here, and here. Many more exist.)

Kilmeade went on to attack Biden for what he called trying to unify the country, which to conservatives means praising Trump and enacting his policies.

Even the Fox News chyron was false.

In reality, Biden’s speech is actually being praised for his efforts to unite the nation. Here are just a few examples:

‘Desperation’: Fox Staffers Embarrassed Over Network’s ‘Indefensible’ Sponsorship of CPAC



Fox News staffers are angry and embarrassed by the network’s association with the upcoming CPAC conference where former president Donald Trump and his allies will continue to spread election lies.

The conservative confab lists Fox Nation — a fledgling streaming service operated by Fox News Media — as a top corporate sponsor, along with the American Conservative Union and Christianity-based Liberty HealthShare, of this week’s CPAC 2021, where the former president, his son and congressional Republicans are expected to push bogus claims of election fraud, reported The Daily Beast.

“I’m not even surprised anymore,” a current Fox News employee told the website. “Fox is indefensible at this point as it has become a channel for the GOP… well, more than usual. So many employees at Fox don’t even support half the shit the channel does or says… It isn’t right, but Fox has rarely been on the right side of history and ethics.”

Fox News Media donated $250,000 through its streaming service, which had contributed at least $28,000 to last year’s conference, and “Fox & Friends” host Pete Hegseth will take part in the conference, along with current contributors Dan Bongino, Lawrence Jones, Deroy Murdock and former Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz.

“Doesn’t surprise me at all,” said a second current staffer. “That’s their crowd, it’s their audience. I feel like they’re always there… CPAC is the Fox audience so it makes sense that they would have a presence there.”

A Fox News Media spokesperson declined to comment on the CPAC donation but pointed out that Fox Corp. chief executive Lachlan Murdoch, the son of company chairman Rupert Murdoch, said the streaming service was “doing tremendously well” — but network staffers say the sponsorship reeks of desperation.

“I think it’s desperate,” said a third staffer. “Fox Nation doesn’t have any clear identity of what it is. Pandering hard to right wing or a fluff HGTV lifestyle wannabe. But it clearly shows desperation and a lack of identity. I’d say it’s biased, but Fox Nation doesn’t pretend to be straight news. I have heard from several people they’ve struggled big-time to get subscribers and money from Fox Nation. I don’t think you advertise with CPAC unless you desperately want right-wing subscriptions.”
