Fox News takes a stab at Trump during CPAC speech

Just as Fox News was emerging from the proverbial dog house in the eyes of some of its viewers — specifically, fans of former President Donald Trump — the network faced backlash over the weekend for running what appeared to be a disclaimer while Trump delivered a speech.

According to Mediaite, the former president spoke at the Dallas, Texas-based Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Sunday. As Trump began talking about the 2020 election, Fox News placed a chyron at the bottom of the screen that read, “The voting system companies have denied the various allegations made by President Trump and his counsel regarding the 2020 election.”

To many on social media, the Fox News chyron felt a lot like the incessant fact-check disclaimers attached to Trump’s Facebook and Twitter posts before he was ultimately censored off of the social networks.

Trump’s critics, on the other hand, seemed pleased with Fox News’ attempt to make sure any unproven claims about the 2020 election were debunked in real-time.

The chyron appeared as the former president talked to the CPAC audience about vote totals in the 2020 election, and as Mediaite reported, it appeared at the bottom of the screen for roughly 38 seconds, though for much of that time, Trump had already moved on to a different subject.

While Fox News hasn’t clarified, as of this writing, why they ran the chyron, it’s more than likely due to the fact that the cable news behemoth still faces two enormous, multi-billion-dollar defamation lawsuits filed by Dominion Voting Systems and Smartmatic, both of which are companies that supplied voting machines in various states for the 2020 election.

“Trump’s CPAC Speech Was So Full Of Lies Fox News Had To Run A “Disclaimer Chyron” So They Wouldn’t Get Sued,” one Twitter user wrote.

Call it a hunch, but something tells us that the former president will more than likely have something to say about Fox News in the coming days.

The truth on the Trump election landslide was found in Germany by our special forces when the Dominion voting machines were confiscated and the reason they were blown up in Nashville when the NSA spy building on Americans was blown up by the shadow government which is the CIA and State Department. The Republican Party won 90% of the seats in the House making the election of Biden statistically impossible and the election of the two communist Senators from Georgia was a sham. Shown near the end of a video “Absolute Proof” is hard evidence of the biggest cyber warfare attack in the history of the world against the US in this last election.  Forensic computer evidence is displayed towards the end of the video of foreign footprints using false credentials and thousands of IP addresses sending data to change the ballot counts in the US.  Servers from all over the world were utilized for this purpose; such as: China, Canada, Iran, Turkey, Singapore, Italy, Spain, Afghanistan, Ukraine, Iraq, Mexico, Venezuela, etc. It’s a takeover of our country by globalists and communists both in the US and worldwide! Irregardless of what party you voted for this should alarm you.

This is indeed alarming! I heard the same thing about the findings in Germany. It is amazing the hypocrisy of Democrats they lie and lie constantly always blaming conservatives, Republicans for the very same things they do. God help us!

Enough of this nonsense with media “debunking” things because it defies them. VOTE WITH YOUR FEET, BAN FOX AND BAN THE CHINA OLYMPICS! The NSA says, “we aren’t spying on Carlson” and we are supposed to believe them? If America First is something FOX truly doesn’t support, be adults and admit it, FOX! You have a right to your beliefs. But I have had enough of elitists thinking we are so stupid we can’t see what you’re doing! I WILL VOTE WITH MY FEET, GOODBYE FOX! I HOPE TRUMP ADDS YOU TO HIS SUIT AGAINST MEDIA TYRANTS! ANNOUNCING A BIDEN WIN WHEN THE POLLS ARE STILL OPEN IS PRETTY GOOD EVIDENCE! THE ONLY FOX ANNOUNCER I EVER WATCH IS TUCKER CARLSON, AND FRANKLY, FOX NEEDS HIM MORE THAN HE NEEDS FOX! WHEREVER CARLSON GOES A LOT OF FOX VIEWERS WILL GO TOO.

Agree about Tucker. Still watch Sean and Laura but not as I used to although there are still some conservatives left at Fox, Waters, Levin, Hilton, Judge Jeanine, and a few others. Never miss Tucker though, without him Fox ratings will go down and will be well deserved.

Pretty sad conservatives cannot express their thoughts without being afraid of repercussions from the left or anyone who doesn’t agree. Many wonder why Fox has kept quiet about voter fraud of the 2020 election, even Tucker, Sean, and Laura, who are strong Trump supporters, but Tucker announced that on Wednesday, 7/15, he will report findings of voter fraud in GA. What about AZ? Hope he at least mentions the audit there is about to be completed.

It is obvious the only reason Fox news is top of the heap is because they have stayed with Trump.
So it would be very smart of Fox News to keep Staying with Him.
If Fox goes against Trump, I will go against Fox News.

Dear Patty,
If you have any intelligence or common sense, you’ll look at all the politicians over the years, both dems and republicans and they lie, cheat, steal and have a wonderful time at our expense. Cause there all politicians and have nothing to loose, only gain.
We need a businessman in the white house, not a politician. They have to have muscle and not be weak like politicians. Go for the jugular instead of the wallet
Look at how much Trump has done with thousands of dems dragging him down. Do you think he’s kiss China’s backside like the Bidens. By the way, why aren’t they in jail ??
How much did Biden screw us out of with the oil deal in russia, the immigration deals, the Alaskan deal ??
Patty, say a prayer Trump stays healthy, or get ready to learn either Chinese or Russian.
