Fox News Host Bret Baier Getting Slammed by Viewers, Check Out His Response

Published

on

Fox News host Bret Baier made some remarks this week about President Trump banning a reporter from covering the White House that didn’t settle too well with some folks in the viewing audience.

True to form in the 21st century, these individuals quickly made it clear that they weren’t happy with Baier by criticizing his comments. Well, the veteran anchor is responding to his critics. Here’s what he has to say.

Some viewers thought Baier had shown disloyalty to Trump because he said that Fox News stood “firmly” with CNN on the issue of press availability. The Trump administration had told a CNN reporter that she was not allowed at an announcement at the Rose Garden because she acted inappropriately earlier that day. She denies their characterization of her behavior.

“As a member of the White House press pool, Fox stands firmly with CNN on this issue of access,” Baier said immediately after the story broke.

Wednesday evening, Baier patiently answered some of his critics on social media and defended his statement.

“When Sam Donaldson would yell questions at Ronald Reagan – what do you think folks supporting the President called him?” Baier asked, referring to Reagan allowing access to hostile reporters.

“They are members of the WH press pool,” he explained to another angry critic. “Kaitlan was doing what pool reporters do. We stand for access for WH reporters-no matter what you think about their coverage.”

Baier reminded some that CNN stood up for Fox News when former President Obama refused them access during his term in office.

“When President Obama’s administration left us out of round robin interviews — CNN and [Jake Tapper] spoke out for us,” he tweeted.

Here’s the full video of Baier’s statement:

What seems really scary about all of this isn’t Trump banning the reporter, nor Fox News standing with CNN. What’s truly frightening is that a journalist is being hounded for not pledging his loyalty to the President of the United States.

Have we as conservatives really forgotten how awful an idea it is to have the press connected so deeply to a particular politician? We endured eight years of that with Obama, many of us often vocalizing how sickening it was to see the media in the pocket of the left instead of being impartial and objective.

Now we’re the ones insulting people for not being loyal to Trump? At times it feels like there is a bad case of viral schizophrenia circulating throughout the political right that makes us wag the finger at leftists for certain practices and then hypocritically ignore those same practices when we do them ourselves.

If we want to win hearts and minds with the truth — and conservative principles grounded in the Word of God are indeed the truth — then we need to live consistently by those principles, which is something the left dare not do. Let’s be bold, be different, be consistent.

US Pop Star Offers to Pay Fines For Olympic Team Protesting Skimpy Outfits

The IOC wants the women to remain scantily clad, and this is undoubtedly on account of their incessant greed.

Published

The Olympics may have built themselves as some sort of prestigious and untouchable global event in years past, but the last few decades have revealed just what a shady cash-grab the games have become. It all began in the 90’s when the financially-struggling Winter Olympics added snowboarding to the games, in a move that was blatantly meant to generate ad revenue from the emerging sport and its fans.  In this quest to cash in, the International Olympic Committee refused to allow any actual snowboarding organizations participate in the operations, which drove several of the world’s best to boycott.  This, in turn, completely ruined the concept that the gold medalists were truly the best in the world, and exposed the IOC as nothing more than a marketing firm. Now, in 2021, a number of female athletes are complaining that they are being forced to wear skimpier clothes than their male counterparts, (often in the same discipline), to which the IOC responded with a “be quiet and play” sort of attitude. Again, the skimpier outfits equate to more ratings, so Olympic organizers are refusing to make accommodations. This has led US pop star Pink to step up.  US pop star Pink has offered to pay the fines handed out to the Norwegian women’s beach handball team, after they wore shorts like their male counterparts instead of bikini bottoms. The team was fined 1,500 euros (£1,295) for “improper clothing” at the European Beach Handball Championships last week. “I’m very proud of the Norwegian female beach handball team for protesting sexist rules about their uniform,” tweeted the singer on Sunday. “Good on ya, ladies,” she added. “I’ll be happy to pay your fines for you. Keep it up.” In doing so, the Olympics will get their coveted cash and these female athletes will be able to perform…

GOP Rep. Says There’s ‘Credible’ Evidence of Wuhan Lab-Leak Theory

China has been avoiding any such investigation for months now.

From the very moment that the COVID-19 pandemic began, there were concerns that China wasn’t telling us the truth. This was primarily based on Beijing’s horrendous record of dishonesty when it comes to the international community, which has been ever-so frequent in cases in which the Chinese government could be made to appear cruel or uncaring. To be fair, it doesn’t take long for most to realize that this is, in fact, reality, especially as we continue to receive credible reports of the nation’s use of concentration camps and ethnic cleansing. In the case of the coronavirus, not only did the world discover that the data coming out of Beijing was wholly incorrect, but that a laboratory specializing in the exact type of coronaviruses that caused COVID-19 happened to be just a few miles away from the epicenter of the pandemic. Now, despite numerous attempts to stall or stymy efforts to investigate the theory that pandemic began as a lab-leak, one US lawmaker is claiming that there is credible evidence of just such a possibility.  Sunday, on FNC’s “The Next Revolution,” Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks (R-IA) stressed the importance of investigating the origins of COVID-19, and in particular, China’s role. His statement was stern. “As you know, we still have yet to have any notice that there will be an investigation. And so I think, rightfully, we used the powers of oversight that we have in Congress and we convened a hearing. Unfortunately, none of the Democrats attended that hearing. But the expert testimony from the witnesses was quite profound and quite significant. “And I think as they said, and I would tend to agree that this virus came from the laboratory, whether it was a leak, whether it was accidental, whether it was intentional, whether it was manmade or whether it…
