Anyone who watched the FOX News GOP debate got a quick lesson in sensationalism and yellow journalism. The “Fair and Balanced” news outlet and its moderators were anything but. The evening started out with calling all the candidates out and asking them to pledge their undying love and devotion to the eventual nominee and promise not to run 3rd party. It went down hill from there. It was very clear they had it out for Trump and weren’t even trying to hide it.
Breitbart news reported: two early, and unscientific polls are suggesting that Trump’s numbers have once again soared.
“Time Magazine found that Mr. Trump took 47% of nearly 55,000 votes. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL)of Florida was in second place with just 10%. The Drudge Report’s poll found more than half of nearly 362,000 voters favored Mr. Trump, well above everyone else,” the Wall Street Journal noted.
After Frank Luntz’s made his opinion on Trump’s performance suggesting “tonight his act wore thin,” conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh stood up for Trump, and instead went after Fox News’ performance.
“I have never seen this kind of public backlash against Fox News personalities since the network launched in 1997,” the radio legend stated.
Even Bloomberg Politics went after Fox News host Megyn Kelly for her questioning comparing it to “something Rachel Maddow would ask.”
A few hours before Thursday’s Fox News debate, a friend of Donald Trump’s confided to me that Trump was nervous. Not about the competition—he could handle them. No, Trump worried about Fox News, and in particular, debate moderator Megyn Kelly. She’d been hammering him all week on her show, and he was certain she was out to get him. He’d canceled a Fox News appearance on Monday night, the friend said, in order to avoid her. (Trump’s spokeswoman wouldn’t confirm or deny this.)
It turns out Trump was right. His toughest opponents Thursday night weren’t the candidates up on stage, but the Fox News moderators, who went right after him—none with more gusto than Kelly…
But Trump saw her coming a mile away and cut her off.
Perhaps Megyn Kelly, Chris Wallace and Bret Baier should consider what this kind of a hatchet job might do to their careers before they try this kind of stunt, again.
