Fox News anchor Neil Cavuto heavily criticized President Donald Trump over his complaints that Fox News isnt sufficiently pro-Trump enough.
Cavuto gave a long monologue to close out Thursdays Your World with Neil Cavuto, hitting at Trump complaining to Twitter followers that Fox isnt working for us anymore!
I think the president watches Fox, Cavuto said. I also think hes getting sick of Fox, which is weird because I think he gets pretty fair coverage on Fox, but the president making clear that to fact-check him is to be all but dead to him and a legion of supporters, who let me know in no uncertain terms that I am either with him totally or a never-Trumper bully.
First of all, Mr. President, we dont work for you. I dont work for you, he continued. My job is to cover you, not fun over you or rip you, just cover you. Call balls and strikes. Our job is to keep score, not settle scores. In my case, to report the economic numbers with their good and when theyre bad. But when the markets are soaring and with her tumbling. When trade talks looking theyre coming together and when they are look like falling apart. Its called being fair and balanced, Mr. President.
Youre entitled to your point of view, Mr. President, but youre not entitled to your own set of facts, Cavuto said.

No, Neil. It is called “the hard left turn”.
You might want to look it up.
No, he’s right, your channel is total trash now, and you contributed to that, Neil.
Three hours of Shep denying that several hundred miles of 30 foot barriers replacing a few barbed wire strings are “new” is hardly fair, or balanced. It’s word-parsing lying. It’s not news, and it’s far beyond balanced opinion.
And then there’s Donna and Juan. They’re not just left-leaning, they are in-the-bag propagandists. How can Donna Brazile ever show her face on any TV after giving Hillary the debate questions in 2016?
I like a lot of what Neil says, but he’s way off base here.
“Fair and Balanced” doesn’t mean treating obvious lies and falsehoods as legitimate debate topics.
I had Cavuto on for about two minutes yesterday while he was discussing China tariffs with some guests and referred to the president’s actions as “Abbott and Costello”. He can shove it deep.
Neil has been itching to give this speech about Trump for a long time. Has he had George (Mr.Kellyanne)Conway on yet?
Not anymore it isn’t. CNN says they’re the truth as well.
I think Cavuto welcomes the trashing of Fox by President Trump and his response as he thinks it gives him cache with the rest of the pathetic fake news media. And if anything this shows the President is an equal opportunity trasher of fake news.
Id rather see 24 hours of Lou Dobbs and Tucker. Nothing else on Fockers News is worth much anymore.
Cavuto, Napolitano, Shep Smith, Chis Wallace...
Nothing fair and balanced about that NeverTrump clown cabal.
*I'm sure some useless cuck is going to remind me of Cavuto's medical issues. Before you do, let me say I don't give a crap. Anyone who attacks Trump is useless to me. He's the last line between us and socialism.
I was flipping thru channels and came upon Cavuto and his diatribe. After a few seconds, I turned him off and reminded myself why I haven’t watched him ( or much of FNC) for ages.
Trump, “gets pretty fair coverage on Fox”?? El tu, Cavuto?
More liberals watch Fox News than watch CNN and MSNBC combined More liberal commentators are on Fox News than conservative commentators are on other networks, combined.
I’m ok with Fox News leftwing afternoon slant as it does show both sides. After 5 PM is when Fox has most of its viewers so who really gives a crap what Cavuto and Sheep have to say.
Cavuto, I agree with the President. I can tell that u hate our president. You are such a disappointment.
