Fox News host Juan Williams was called out on air after making this ridiculous claim

Published

Juan Williams has been a part of Fox News since 1997.

But the Emmy award winning commentator is also becoming more and more of just another radical leftist making bizarre and disprovable claims.

And Williams got called out on air by his co-hosts on The Five after making this ridiculous claim.

From its inception, Fox News has tried to be the “fair and balanced” news network and has always included liberal commentators and journalists in its lineup.

One of the original liberals is Juan Williams, who has been with Fox more than 20 years.

Lately he has been the vocal and angry liberal voice on Fox’s popular show The Five.

And on Thursday, while trying to downplay the violence and destruction being caused by Antifa and BLM radicals, the co-host claimed that the Portland riot violence footage “keeps being repeated from the first night way back.”

The segment about the continued rioting, looting, and violence began with a video of Portland Police Chief Chuck Lovell calling for an end to ongoing violence in his city.

Then, after citing a recent Gallup poll that showed “81% of black Americans want police to maintain or increase a presence in their communities,” the show’s co-host Pete Hegseth asked Williams whether he agreed with the police chief that the BLM movement has been “hijacked” by violence.

“No, gosh, I think it’s still like 60% plus of Americans support the Black Lives Matter movement,” Williams responded.

“The violence?” Hegseth asked.

“I couldn’t disagree more with the police chief,” Williams said. “They don’t support defund the police. That’s Republicans, Democrats, black, white, Asian, Latino. That’s not something that people support. What they really are focused on is police reform.”

“In terms of, you know, the violence that you see in these pictures that keeps being repeated from the first night way back,” Williams continued.

Clearly agitated, co-host Lawrence Jones interrupted Williams and said, “That’s what’s happening there right now.”

Hegseth piled on, “Juan, that video is not from the first day. That video we’re showing is from last night. It’s ongoing day after day.”

“Oh, please,” said Williams.

“Oh please? This is our own video from our own show out of Portland. On this program, lighting fires and assaulting police,” said Hegseth.

Williams derisively ended the segment by continuing to insist that such violence as shown in the Fox News video “is not typical of the protests, which have been largely peaceful.”

The “largely peaceful” mantra has been the liberal media’s response to the death and destruction being perpetrated by the rioters around the country.

And while protests have occurred off and on in a number of major U.S. cities since May, the Portland rioting has continued almost every night ever since.

And, largely overlooked by most of the media, Portland saw a record number of murders in the city in July, after the Portland city council voted to cut $15 million from its police budget.

But don’t think that Juan Williams is alone in his claims of “largely peaceful” riots.

Almost all the media has joined with Nancy Pelosi, Jerry Nadler, Chuck Schumer, and other leading Democrats to continue to try and spread the myth that these continued riots are “largely peaceful.”

Fox News just fired one big name that Trump supporters could not believe

Published

The shake ups at Fox News continue.

But no one saw this change coming.

And Fox News just fired one big name that Trump supporters could not believe.

On Tuesday, Fox News announced it was firing political editor and decision desk member Chris Stirewalt.

The Hollywood Reporter stated:

Fewer than 20 people are expected to be impacted, someone familiar with the matter says. The company had added to its workforce to help with its coverage of the 2020 election, and with the election over the company is adjusting its staffing accordingly.

Among those let go Tuesday was Chris Stirewalt, the politics editor for Fox News. A 10-year veteran of the company, Stirewalt was also a key member of the Fox News decision desk, which drew the ire of President Trump after becoming the first network to call Arizona for Biden.

Stirewalt became the focus of controversy when Fox became the first network to call Arizona for Joe Biden with just 73 percent of the vote.

That was the event on Election Night that everyone focused on because Presidential Elections draw the most attention.

But Stirewalt and the Fox News Decision Desk completely blew the race for control of the House of Representatives.

The Fox Decision Desk projected early in the night that Democrats would keep control of the House and even gain five seats.

That ended up being wildly wrong as Republicans won every single one of the tossup races and gained 13 seats in the House.

There obviously needed to be major changes at the Fox News Decision Desk.

Stirewalt became the face of the gang that couldn’t shoot straight.

And he paid for it with his job.

An MSNBC host offered this strange explanation for why Fox News is in last place

Fox News Channel’s rapidly declining ratings are a cause for celebration in the liberal media.

Trump supporters fled the channel thinking the network abandoned the President.

But one MSNBC host offered this strange explanation for why Fox News is in last place.

On Monday, former Republican Congressman and MSNBC host Joe Scarborough claimed that the reason Fox News Channel’s ratings collapsed was because viewers punished the network for repeating Donald Trump’s claims that massive voter fraud swung the 2020 election to Joe Biden.

“Just bald-faced lies,” Scarborough ranted. “And they knew they were lying all along. They knew they were lying to the viewers and spreading the lie to try to get a couple more thousand viewers. And it’s landed them in last place now.”

Fox News viewers began to lose patience with the channel over the premature call on Election Night of Arizona for Joe Biden.

But Scarborough is wrong about when Fox News ratings dropped.

The plunge began when Fox hosts began attacking President Trump’s claims of voter fraud.

Almost overnight, Fox lost 40 percent of its audience as viewers migrated over to Newsmax TV and One America News as alternatives.

Before Big Tech banned President Trump, the President repeatedly blasted Fox News on social media for anti-Trump bias and also began linking to clips from Newsmax and One America News to promote their channels and build their audiences.

Fox News is now experiencing their lowest ratings since around 2000.

But if anyone is lying here, it is Scarborough. Fox’s viewers are not rejecting the network for repeating President Trump’s allegations of mass voter fraud.

One former Fox News host just revealed there is major shakeup coming at the network

Millions of Trump supporters fled Fox News after they saw its programming turn on Donald Trump.

That set off a cascade of events inside Fox News.

And now this former Fox News host just revealed there is major shakeup coming at the network.

For years, Fox News was the number one rated cable news channel because it united its audience around the fact that it would challenge the narratives in the leftist Fake News Media.

But starting with the election, Fox News Channel’s “straight news” programming began to sound like CNN and millions of viewers began to change the channel and began watching competitors like Newsmax and One America News.

Former Fox News host Eric Bolling noted the fact that on Tuesday, Fox News was once again in last place and that Rupert Murdoch was flying into New York to oversee a massive management shakeup.

Fox News was not just in last place for Tuesday.

For the period from December 28 to January 13 Fox News finished in last place.

One change Fox already made was moving Martha MacCallum out of the 7pm primetime spot and replacing her with an opinion show to be hosted by a rotating cast of anchors.

But that appears to be just the beginning of the changes as Fox News’ outward projection of confidence about their audience returning is having a serious organizational panic.
