Time for another anatomy of a Trump tweet.
On July 19, New York Times TV critic James Poniewozik wrote about Pres. Trump’s favorite TV show Fox & Friends. Poniewozik called it “the most powerful TV show in America.”
Well today, Fox is out with a full page ad that appeared in the New York Times as well as the New York Post and the Wall Street Journal (which both share a parent company with Fox News), using that very line.
Naturally, the co-hosts talked about the ad on their show this morning. There were several mentions throughout the 3-hour program, with the first coming at 6:03 a.m. ET.
Things were brought full circle when, at 6:48 a.m. ET, the president sent a tweet lauding his favorite TV show, while also taking a swipe at his least favorite publication:

But it might be the author of that Times story, James Poniewozik who gets the last laugh:
