An unfortunate distraction

Fox News is shocked, shocked, at the way some of its “reporters” are out campaigning for Trump while posing as “reporters.”

On Tuesday, Fox News publicly rebuked Hannity and Pirro for appearing with Trump. “FOX News does not condone any talent participating in campaign events,” the network said in a statement to CNBC. “We have an extraordinary team of journalists helming our coverage tonight and we are extremely proud of their work. This was an unfortunate distraction and has been addressed.” Fox did not say, however, what actions it had taken to address the issue with two of its biggest prime time stars.

Let me guess. A mid-level executive told them, “Now Sean and Jeanine, don’t ever do that again” – and then all three had a damn good laugh.

In addition to the statement from Fox, Hannity said Tuesday that when he pointed at the pool of reporters and called them “fake news” at the rally, he did not mean the Fox News reporters who were among them.

We know. That is not, in fact, the issue.
