Democrats Demand that Fox News Acts Like the Rest of the Media

In an unprecedented move that is sure to alarm anyone who cares about freedom of the press, the Democrat-controlled House Committee on Oversight and Reform is demanding that Fox News explain why it did not publish the Stormy Daniels’ story back in 2016.

Committee chairman Rep. Elijah Cummings is insisting that a former Fox News reporter turn over any documents pertaining to President Donald Trump’s extramarital affairs that she may have in her possession. The bizarre rationale behind Rep. Cummings’ request seems to be the assertion that Fox News’ failure to cover the Stormy Daniels story in a timely manner constituted a campaign rules violation.

Former Fox News reporter Diana Falzone has publicly stated that she will cooperate with the House Committee on Oversight and Reform investigation. However, Fox News executive Ken LaCorte, who made the decision to decline publishing the Stormy Daniels story, has made it clear that he has no intention of cooperating — even though he fully supports a Fox decision to release Diana Falzone from her non-disclosure agreement.

In a stinging rebuke to Rep. Cummings published on Mediaite, Mr. LaCorte accurately notes that Fox News was not the only news outlet that declined to publish Stormy Daniels’ story back in 2016. The lack of corroborating evidence for the story led even mainstream news media outlets to push the story back until long after President Donald Trump had won the election.

As Ken LaCorte also notes, the idea that a House Committee should have oversight over editorial decisions made by a private news organization is scary. If news outlets could face legal action based on the absurd allegation that publishing or not publishing a news story constitutes an “in-kind campaign contribution,” no media outlet in the United States would be safe from government interference.

Fox News is far from the only news organization that has made editorial decisions that anger a particular political party. In fact, the list of news stories that mainstream news media outlets have suppressed is almost endless. The only difference between Fox and other outlets such as CNN and MSNBC is that the latter tend to suppress stories that portray Democrats in a negative light. Stories that most news outlets have failed to cover in a timely manner in order to give Democrats an advantage during election season include reports of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s poor health, Beto O’Rourke’s DUI conviction and the fact that he is married to a rich heiress and former presidential candidate John Edwards’ extramarital affair.

Naturally, it would be ideal if news outlets always published the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth all the time. Unfortunately, as most savvy Americans have already realized, this is not the case. Even so, having the government interfere is far worse than having biased news media outlets in the first place.

Even those who do not agree with Fox’s decision to put off the Stormy Daniels story should be horrified by the fact that House Democrats are trying to force Fox change its editorial standards. If Republicans were to make a similar move against CNN or the New York Times, there would be widespread outrage — and rightfully so.

  1. The Democratic Party is standing firm on there hypocrite views when it comes to anything to do with the Republicans views.

  2. The news directors of CNN, PMSNBC and every liberal ragsheet need to be grilled for decades of doing the same but much worse! Cummings and all the other remaining MLK era ass clown niggas need to fucking croak!

    • You’re an ass, Chuck. Conservatives come in all shapes and colors. Fortunately, most of them are smart(er than you) enough to ignore your moronic noise.

  3. Another step to becoming a socialist nation where Govt rules the media. Can you say Banana Republic? This should frighten everyone. It’s bad enough the mainstream is a branch of the Democrat communications division. They are just searching for dirt on Trump which confirms that the Socialist/Democrat Party the party of Destruction the Republican Party the party of ideas.

  4. I would like to know why the MSM networks don’t talk about any of the positive accomplishments made by this administration. I would like to know why they don’t bother with news that will not be popular in moving their agenda forward. I would like to know why they knowingly lie to the public each and every day. I would like anyone who tries to pass themselves off as a “journalist” to have to live by a Code of Ethics (just like a ton of other professions). If they can’t stand up to that level of scrutiny, then they just need to pass themselves off as opinion pundits. I would like to know why they collude with the the DNC/Media Matters to get their daily talking points. I would like to know why this is considered legal and “news”.

    Face it – the communists have let us know that’s what they are – they need to be IMMEDIATELY voted out of office! And their other branch – the MSM – needs to be stopped as well.

  5. TERM LIMITS!!! That’s the answer. Politics was never meant to be a “full time profession”. The “Founding Fathers” were merchants, farmers, laborers, teachers, etc. etc. They only gathered to represent their own constituents when needed. These phony, lazy, corrupt politicians today couldn’t make a living IF THEY HAD TO. The “politician” from Georgia are an embarrassment! The last “mid-term” election certainly proved it! TERM LIMITS! Think about that come 2020! Understand it’s the “State Representatives and Governors” are the ones who decide; but its the VOTERS who can dictate to these “State Politicians”. TERM LIMITS!

    • this is a bit “off topic”but I just can’t let it go..I have not been fortunate enough to have earned a college degree. However, if I had, I don’t believe I would care to have my “accomplishment “sealed”.The only reason anyone would do such a thing ,(in my view) is the information it would provide would show the person hiding it to be a total flunky. A failure ,if you will, and probably stupid. I have always believed that is the ONLY reason that scumbag kenyan had his school records sealed. what he did to this nation shows him to be an idiot.. If those records were any good, that narcissist would have had them nailed to his forehead. Now ,we have another moron in the person of one “elijah cummings” . This communist bastard shows just how dumb he is every time he opens his rather large mouth and lets the air out of his empty head. He is SO stupid that he doesn’t realize the can of worms he has just opened. Beside the fact what he is “demanding” is CLEARLY unconstitutional and WILL be overturned ,If the lunacy ever gets that far.Democrats ,are without doubt the dumbest bunch to ever walk this planet !

  6. The liberal dem bloodsucking parasitical life forms, give a whole new range of meaning to asinine and inane.
    They have come to the place where we can no longer deal with them, we all know what the single answer to dealing with thee life forms, is.

  7. Just another example of how bad the Democratic Party has become and the only fix is complete change of most of the elected officials. Most of these Dem officials have lost of sense of what they were elected to do and have been on a one way agenda trying to find trash on Trump. No matter how hard they try, they cannot seem to find anything and have gone off the deep end over it. How this idiot Cummings is still behind a desk and not told to resign is beyond imagination. To even think he can tell any news media what and when to print something shows how insane he is. After three years of left media lies, spins, scams and printing whatever they want, Cummings calls out Fox news for not printing something. The Democratic Party has destroyed itself with their hatred of Trump.

  8. I agree term limits or the corruption will not stop. Also why doesn’t the liberal media report all the democrats cover up Bengazi, fast and furious, uranium one, the clinton foundation and many other issues. The republicans have to grow a back bone and start fighting back and hopefully AG Bar will do that his job and start holding people accountable. GOD BLESS AMERICA

  9. Democraps and Cummings (the head of the oversight committee)what a joker. And I am not racist by any means. They should bring Rachel Maddow and company on charges of reporting stories about Trump-Russian collision. Their fabrication of a big lie. These are the people who have no accountability on there
    False reporting. They are like a defunct comedy act that should only run during daytime for all those that are not out making a buck to survive. They are the ones that are creating our division and are Very disrespectfully to our PRESIDENT. YES Our President Donald J Trump. They should be embarrassed and ashamed of their actions. They are pathetic!!!
    God Bless America!!!

  10. I don’t recall CNN, MNBC, The Washington Post, NY Times or any other low life media outlets that hate President Trump, one time talk or publish anything about the Obama administration’s FBI, Justice Department, Hillary and all the other swamp creatures trying to take down the President before and after he was elected. Where are all those proven facts? Obviously hidden from the public?

  11. It is beginning to look more and more like the 1930’s again. What is wrong with these people have they forgotten history so soon?

  12. We need to vote alotof these democrats out of office before they completely destroy our country and pass a national law no muslims in any form of our country. They r evil and hate the USA, somehow we Need to get on the ballot in every State term limits, we the the people r suppose to be in charge and there suppose to listen to us, not what they want.

  13. It is way past time for the principals in the Demomarxist party to issue an apology to the USA for the treasonous treatment they have administered to a legally elected President Donald J. Trump. ENOUGH ALREADY.. Even after the expense of 30 million taxpayer dollars and 2 years of attempting to dig up something, anything that Pres. Trump illegal that he may have done–have come up empty handed.. This will go into the history of the USA as the worst example of a conspiratorial coup in our country since it’s existence. I am just waiting for the demomarxists to begin turning on each other and start confessing on their co-conspirators in an attempt to save their own hides. In the meantime–follow the money–the 12 million dollar discredited dossier paid for by Hilary and the DNC–the millions collected by Joe Biden and his son from China and Ukraine– I am ordering the new book “HIDDEN EMPIRES” as soon as it comes out so I can better follow this corrupt political party. HAVE THEY NO SHAME??? They still want to prove that our president is a criminal and we find that Jerry Nadler who has been like an ankle biting dog has an old personal vendetta against DJT from old NY politics. THET ARE A BUNCH OF SICKOS .

  14. CUMMINGS, the head MARXIST COMMIZAR OF THE HOUSE, now DEMANDING the control of FOX NEWS! WHERE HAVE WE SEEN THIS KIND OF CRAP BEFORE? HE IS NOW TRULY SHOWING HIS IGNORANCE FULL FLEDGE!

  15. Mr. cummings is a pompous old ass who continues to ride his reputation as a civil rights hero. Unfortunately, all that was long ago and his mental processes have noticeably slowed and calcified since then. Obviously, the leftists desire to control every action and every thought of everyone they can gain power over. That they have so far succeeded in gaining control over far too many is regrettable. May their lust for power be thwarted at every opportunity.!

  16. The Democrats are rapidly becoming the USA’s worst enemy. No other organization has been so anti-American. Cummings is one of the truly dangerous one to all of us.
