Donald Trump has reignited his war with Fox News.
Trump is now favored by 25 percent of GOP voters with Dr. Ben Carson at 17 percent and Carly Fiorina at 12 percent. Kelly disappeared from the air, for a planned vacation, the network said. Trump seems to get along just fine with Sean Hannity and has in the past had a decent relationship with Greta Van Susteren, although Van Susteren authored an article recently that called for Trump to “Give it a rest!”
“Now, you know, it’s sort an incredible thing because I’m leading every single one of the polls“.
In 2012, Republican contenders fought what was informally known as the “Alies primary”, seeking the blessing of the Fox News chief.
He deplored Fox’s coverage of him again on Tuesday night.
But a Fox News spokesperson suggested Trump wasn’t telling the full story.
In another tweet, Trump said “The O’Reilly Factor” was “boring”, chiding him for not having “some knowledgeable talking heads on our show for a change instead of the same old Trump haters”.
She says in a statement that when coverage did not go Mr Trump’s way, he engaged in personal attacks on Fox anchors and hosts. “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 reads.
Bill O’Reilly said on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” earlier this week that Trump is booked as a guest on his Thursday night program.
What happened between Fox and Trump?
The other disputes erupted after the August. 6 Fox News debate, in which host Megyn Kelly asked a stunning question about Trump’s various instances of misogynistic remarks.
“Ailes will be joined by senior Fox editorial executives.”, it said.
But the truce was exceedingly fragile.
At the time, Trump retweeted a commenter calling Kelly a “bimbo”.
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump isn’t pleased with Fox News and decided they’re not worthy of his presence.
The National Review editor’s comments sparked a battle with Trump on Twitter Wednesday night.
The Guardian also reports that Trump was also affected when O’Reilly’s failed to cite a poll that showed how far along Trump has been doing. He fired off a series of angry tweets.
While the Fox News Channel has been slammed for many things since it launched in 1996, being a vehicle for liberal Democrats nearly certainly hasn’t been among them – as the network has long been accused of favoring Republicans over Democrats.
