Fox News tells anchors not to call Biden 'President-elect,' then seems to change its tune 1

 

Fox News, the cable network that has been one of President Trump's most important supporters, told anchors and other staffers not to call Joe Biden the "President-elect" when the network calls the race, according to two memos obtained by CNN Business.
The memos said that Fox should "stay away" from using the description, and instead say something like Biden has "enough electoral votes to win the presidency."
The memos justified the unusual positioning by citing the moves by Trump's legal teams to challenge the results. Numerous legal analysts, however, have dismissed the lawsuits and potential legal maneuverings as having little to no merit.
"We will report both sides until there is further guidance," one of the memos said.
After CNN Business reported on the internal guidance, and noted that it was possible that Fox could change the guidance either before or after it calls the race, Fox denied that it was guidance at all, and anchors on Fox referred to Biden as "President-elect" in hypothetical conversations.
One of the email messages told staffers that "we will not be calling Biden the president elect. Or using any of the whizbang graphics that say so."

      @Christine King most Australians consume Murdoch Media and are just as bigoted as Americans, if not.more. Australia was also founded on genocide and slavery.

      What we really need is to have the evil billionaire(s) who are funding over 100 nights of mindless violence by ANTIFA to finally be tried and convicted for their crimes against our nation. Those riots are doing much more to harm minority communities in this country than other force has for several decades. I am talking mostly about “He Who Must Not Be Named,” but there are probably others. 🙂

    • People need to cut Joe Biden some slack. I met him once in a Chuck E. Cheese bathroom. He was really nice and helped me potty and wipe. While I thought it was a little weird he was in the girls bathroom, CNN’s Chris Cuomo explained to me that it is normal behavior for grown men to be in women’s bathrooms. Anyway, if I was old enough to vote this year, I think I would vote for him. He said I reminded him of his favorite ‘cheese pizza’. I still don’t know what he meant by that. Do you?

    • Where do I sign.?

      Trump was leading 500.000 on Nov 03, then they stopped for 4 hrs, then 1000.000 suddenly appear the following day? right! of course, Biden knew he did not have to do his rally, he knew that China has printed millions of ballots for him!

    Fox doesn’t matter anymore. They hitched their wagon to a lame horse and they’re now being targeted by the very trumpists they help create. Karma.

  8. Yep. Start making the Murdoch family take responsibility.

  9. Wait do y’all remember when Fox got mad at Obama for wearing a helmet when he went for a bike ride 😂

      Darth Vader is finally getting escorted from the White House.

      Yoda: Lock him up we will !!

    • @Trump Fan Network 2 do you remember when Trump’s kids all made money because their father was in the WH, and….gosh, if you’ve been worried about Biden, this will blow your mind…his daughter and son in law were given jobs they were completely unqualified for, and Trump over ruled their need for security clearances?

    • @ Korosoin Brujula
      This isn’t even a real name here. You so proud of your statements, that you can’t even put a real name on it? Darth Vader out of the White House? You mean the Hollywood view of evil, and darkness (like Oblama’s soul)?! Yah, I am glad about that too!! And his second hand man the same, yes Joe Blow… The Rainbow boys, who like shiny rainbow colors on the White House!! A weird mix. They don’t know that the first thing a Communist taken over country does in their ethnic cleansings. That is how the expression came about of Beijing in the closet. Because if you are a known ghostie in a Communist country, you are first on the list to be killed. And that my friend, is the facts!! Look it up!!

    The Murdoch propaganda machine is running on empty: much like the craniums of its listeners 🤪😂😂

  14. So. I never called 45 the “President. “I DON’T REALLY CARE, DO YOU?” to quote Fox News god’s current wife, Melania, 🤣 lol

    • @US-Zionist Rusty and if you ain’t heard. Supreme Court Justice Alito. Just handed down an order. All votes counted after 8:00 p.m. on election night. Shall be segregated, and counted separately from the election vote.
      As of the law stands now. all election votes must be cast by 8:00 p.m. on election night. Nancy pelosi had eight months. to change the voting laws because of the pandemic. Her failure to do her job, as a lawmaker. may cost Joe Biden the election. And if you remember at 8:00 on the election night. Trump was winning all the states, that needed to be won.

    • Oh Karen Karen Karen, stop being so gullible…you may be a Trumpette but you should still use common sense and think for yourself instead of filtering your thoughts through Donald Trumps twisted logic..

    • This is what trump did in four years. He divided the country n encouraged hatred.

    • @Jean Velves before the pandemic. Our economy was the best it’s ever been in history. Our dollar was number one . Our employment rate was higher than ever. Our unemployment rate was lower than ever. There hasn’t been a conflict or a war in four years. You haven’t heard from isis in three years. He boxed out and crashed Iran’s economy. Shut down Kim jong-un. When’s the last time you seen a missile test from North Korea? Equaled out our payments to the UN. Before the US was paying 70% of all un activity. We put more restrictions on Russia than any other president. Killed China’s trade war. And you believe President Trump hasn’t done nothing in four years?

      How about prison reform, social reform, opportunity zones, 360million toward low-funded black community colleges. These are things he’s done for the black community. After 8 years of Obama and Joe Biden. Why couldn’t they help the black community?

    • @Jean Velves our country started to divide during Obama’s first term. Everything that come out of Obama’s mouth, was racist, racist, and some more racism
      Michelle Obama’s first night in the White House. She was sad, because if she had to sleep in the house that slaves built. Well a quick history lesson. No slaves helped in the building of the White House. In that time and age, they felt like the slaves weren’t to be trusted.
      So after America picked the first African American president. They still believe America is racist. You can’t win the presidency without the white vote. They are 60% of our population.

  15. People need to start referring to rudy giuliani as “the disgraced rudy giuliani” after his indefensible conduct.

    • @Untracked Productions INSTRUMENTAL HIP HOPWith respect to your rant; whereby there is NO SUCH EVIDENCE to your claims whatsoever. However, there is no liberal media reporting on Bill Clinton being a frequent flyer to Epstein Island WITHOUT his Secret Service detail; or how Obama enjoyed $60,000 worth of “hotdogs” at the Whitehouse with his wife Michael…oops I mean Michelle. Not to mention Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State (amongst other things) being the ring leader of international and domestic child trafficking ring that feeds these monsters that the left seem to worship. Last, but not least Biden with the worse political track history for more than 47 years; is busted enriching himself in the capacity of Vice President via his son Hunter. But NOOOOO we cannot acknowledged any of these heinous crimes by the left. It would make us look
      like HYPOCRITES!
      Oh by the way, who said anything about Q anon or whatever they claim to be?

      Bottom line is I agree both side of the isle are full of criminals. However Rudi’s alleged “indefensible conduct” is child’s play compared to the inconceivable crimes committed by the leaders of the Democrat party. Lock them all up and start again fresh!

    • @Untracked Productions INSTRUMENTAL HIP HOP I respectfully require you to provide proof of claim. Otherwise you are just another ranting leftist lunatic!

      Finally, you did not rebut my claims about Clinton’s, Obama and Biden. Thus must be true.

      Have a nice day, my friend. 😉

    • @Reply Soon You mean the millions of dead people who voted for sleepy Joe by post. I still want to know why you leftists, Hollywood and elites in media prefer to have a paid politician in power who bows to China? What goes on your brains to be so dumbed down by the deep state?

    • @Justin Case stupid

    • @country life Go ahead actually. Please impeach him so we can have Kamala Harris as our new president and the squad in her cabinet! Republicans will finally elect a woman as president after all, who would have thought? LOL

    • @Bigbradwolf You’re to blind to see it. Just because Trump said it, doesn’t mean it will happen, because all of his words are lies just like the voting fraud with no evidence. You Trump supporters only believe that the only for Biden to win is by cheating. Y’all are pathetic and ignorant and always copy Trump words no matter what.

    • @Lazy Mo Biden is doing extremely well with dead postal voters.

  19. The Maga King is on his last ropes. Even the rats on his swamp are abandoning ship. Don’t leave mad, just leave.

    • now it will be make america worse again dont you people got some stores to loot,buisness to burn,people to kill how about a good old liberal riot for old times sake and maybe perform abortions in your spare time , oh the good ole days right guys.

  20. For the last 25 years Fox News has been breeding wolves, and now those wolves have turned against them! You reap what you sow!
