On Monday, Fox News clearly made its stance as they begin to move to the left side. In a press conference telecast, the news outlet cut White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany when she accused the Dems of “welcoming” fraud and illegal voting.
“She is charging that the other side is welcoming fraud and welcoming illegal voting. Unless she has more details to back that up, I can’t in good countenance continue showing you this,” Neil Cavuto, Fox News host, said on-air as the outlet cut the press conference in Washington, D.C.
“Maybe they do have something to back that up, but that’s an explosive charge to make that the other side is effectively rigging and cheating,” the host continued.
The bold move marked a notable shift for Fox News. The news outlet often rallied for President Trump and continuously aired his press conferences.
McEnany’s claims echoed that of President Trump’s campaign in their latest effort to challenge the election result. Joe Biden was projected by the media as the victor over Trump last week.
The Press Secretary declared that the presidential election isn’t over yet, and the conservatives had “only begun the process of obtaining an accurate, honest vote count.”
McEnany then accused the left of opposing voter ID laws signature verification and other identity markers. She said the Dems have been preventing observers from witnessing ballot counting in the poll centers.
“You don’t take these positions because you want an honest election,” McEnany said.
Fox News only briefly aired the conference and cut away thereafter. The outlet didn’t resume airing the press conference.
President Trump’s campaign has been raising allegations of election fraud and irregularities since last week. The allegations, however, are yet to be substantiated.
On Monday, McEnany and RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel claimed voting irregularities in Michigan and Nevada, insisting that officials didn’t have adequate access to witness counting ballots in Philadelphia.
McDaniel declared officials would pursue legalities but admitted it might not be enough to shift the election results.
“Is it going to be enough? We don’t know. Is it going to take time? Yes,” said McDaniel.
Trump refused to concede to Biden, who has been declared as the new president-elect by the media and The Associated Press.
