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.
