In back-to-back hours on Fox News today, two of the network’s anchors took an un-Fox-like posture.
During his show at 3 p.m. ET, Shepard Smith spent more than 5 minutes explaining the Uranium One deal, contradicting Pres. Trump’s claims about, and much of Fox’s opinion coverage of, the 2010 deal and then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton‘s role in it.
“The accusation is predicated on the charge that Secretary Clinton approved the sale. She did not. A committee of nine evaluated the sale. The president approved the sale,” said Smith.
An hour later on his show, Neil Cavuto said he’s not interested in interviewing Pres. Trump.
“I have not asked for a sit down with the President. I don’t want a sit down with the president,” said Cavuto. “That doesn’t mean sit-downs with presidents don’t add value, just that my sitting down with this one probably would not.”
