Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with. Matt Gertz on how Fox News is covering the 2020 Presidential election.
President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani had hoped for an October surprise of the scale of the “Hillary Clinton email scandal” that arguably helped skew the 2016 election in his client’s favor. He shopped around a supposedly shocking story that would reveal Joe Biden’s nefarious business links involving his son Hunter. The Wall Street Journal refused to play so the New York Post did. But the story fell flat.
Now, even Fox News’ Tucker Carlson, who harped on about it, appears reluctant to slam Hunter Biden for much longer. What is the current status of the rightwing echo chamber between Trump and Fox News ahead of the 2020 election?
Matt Gertz, Senior Fellow at Media Matters for America and his latest article is called Fox News really doesn’t care about voluminous evidence of Trump-Russia malfeasance.
