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.

They don’t challenge the lies by the leftists on Fox, letting it go as if that is what “fair” and “balanced” means.
Tucker does. Hannity has just become a long-winded bore. Laura I never liked.
There’s no one else on that station worth watching anymore - including that insipid morning crew that Trump likes so much.
paul ryan is now on the board of fox news.
I believe he is virulently anti-trump.
Nothing surprises me about fox news never-trumpism with him on the board.
past due time for one america news to grow and expand
Neil = Putz
I turn Cavuto off as soon as he comes on. Trump is right, Fox has become just another liberal “new’” organization. And no, Cavuto, it is not called fair and balanced — is is called just more propaganda.
The problem with Fox is that they give liberal commentators twice the speaking time compared to conservatives.
There’s fair and then there’s false news and unwarranted attacks which Cavuto has done. He was one of a half dozen FOX folk who went all Trump bash during the do vs. don’t fiasco. Others were Laura, Shep, Brett and I can’t remember the others.
Cavuto has embarrassed himself acting morally outraged.
Cavuto and his buddy Charlie Gasparino are both diehard Never Trumpers. When 12 Noon rolls around, Fox Business gets turned off.
I can’t even watch him any longer.
He has always been a NeverTrumper and when Ailes left, he took the gloves off.
He is an asshole, as is Shep and now even Sandra Smith...
Don’t watch them. I watch Fox Business news, Stuart Varney and Payne.
Fox News cannot be Pro-America if they are not Pro-Trump.
Hey Neil, Fox dropped fair and balanced and we report, you decide when Rupert let his leftist sons take it over. Could care less what Cavuto thinks. Trump hater and a general idiot.
Fact is, Im gonna bet FOX viewership is down since 2016
They lost me.
But hey, maybe they got the Donna Brazile fair-and-balanced fan club
The only time I tune in is very early in the morning to watch Fox & Friends. Steve and Ainsley seem ok but not so sure about Kilmeade. It’s as if he doesn’t quite fit in based on his facial expressions.
Most of the gals are nice to look at.
How does Payne put up with these weenies?
Cavutoad is THE most pedantic BORE in all of media. His trite writing device is grade school, beyond predictable, and tiresome; he’s the anti-wit to Greg Gutfeld and I’m amazed he’s still employed by this downhill network.
How much less could you care? If you're going to comment on this no talent bag of boredom, I insist that you to do it correctly. Sheesh.
Well said and exactly right!
I think Neil is afraid the President really will find another venue for his news......maybe even start his own!
Go for it Mr.President!
