After Her Insane COVID-19 Coverage, Trish Regan’s Fox Show Placed on Hiatus

Donald Trump’s performance during the COVID-19 crisis has been universally panned. If you’re a Fox News watcher, though, you may not even be familiar with the criticism.

The most egregious report on the Coronavirus came from Fox Business’ Trish Regan who wondered if the alarm over the virus was a plan to get rid of the President. The Fox network has now announced that Regan’s show will be going on hiatus.

On March 9th, Regan told viewers:

“We’ve reached a tipping point. The chorus of hate being leveled at the president is nearing a crescendo as Democrats blame him and only him for a virus that originated halfway around the world. This is yet another attempt to impeach the president. And sadly it seems they care very little for any of the destruction they are leaving in their wake. Losses in the stock market, all this, unfortunately, just part of the political casualties for them.”

That was too much for the network. Fox announced on Friday, “Fox Business’s prime-time programs Trish Regan Primetime and Kennedy will both be on hiatus until further notice. Due to the demands of the evolving pandemic crisis coverage, we are deploying all resources from both shows for staffing needs during critical market hours. Fox Business will run long form programming in prime time for the foreseeable future.”

Regan acknowledged the decision, tweeting, “I want to let everyone know that Trish Regan Primetime is now on hiatus. FBN has taken prudent steps to limit staffing levels and is prioritizing its coverage during market hours. I fully support this decision — we all must to do our part to keep our colleagues safe.”
