Fox News doesn't condone Hannity appearance with Trump

  • President Trump Fox News host Sean Hannity and conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh will all appear at a campaign

"While we often hear that all politics is local, there's just no getting away from the fact that Trump's policies are on the ballot", said host Laura Ingraham on Fox News' "The Ingraham Angle" during her opening monologue, in which she focused on protecting and preserving America's and Americans' future.

"It disturbs me to my core", said another senior Fox News employee, who added, "I am so f-ing mad".

It happened nearly immediately after Trump took the stage in Missouri following an introduction from conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh, who had warmed the crowd up. At the same time, he has sought to distance himself from any potential blame if Republicans lose control of the House. But the relationship between Fox News opinion programming and the Trump White House has raised ethical questions about whether the channel is reporting the news or promoting the president's agenda.

But in my worst fears about what that would look like and how it might affect our democracy, I never thought I would see what I did Monday night on Fox News, starting with the propaganda performance of Sean Hannity.

A Fox News spokesperson offered a similar message to CNN and other news organizations, insisting Hannity would only be at the rally in Missouri to broadcast his show and cover the event for the network. "They've been with us from the beginning".


"But it's closing with elite pundits [like Nate Silver] now hedging on whether Democrats will even take the House as Republicans are poised to perhaps increase their majority in the Senate". Faced with low Republican enthusiasm, Trump calculated that immigration would again be an animating issue for his base.

In recent stops, Trump has directly targeted favorite foes House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters and argued that Democrats would plunge the country into Venezuela-like chaos. Aides believe it to be one of the most effective arguments for bringing GOP voters to the polls. The President said he hoped a the supporter would be fine.

In the final sprint to Election Day, Trump has pushed forward with rallies amid news events that would have halted previous leaders - holding a massive event in IL the same day a gunman massacred 11 people in a Pittsburgh synagogue.

Resuming his speech after the supporter was taken out of the arena, Trump said of the singing, "That was attractive". "There's electricity in the air like I haven't seen since '16", he said Monday. "I wouldn't say it's as important as '16, but it's right up there".
