Last night, Fox News chose not to air the 1/6 Committee’s live hearings. The network decided that the content would be too damaging to show to their viewers.
Still, Fox brought on two of their more serious broadcasters, Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum, to break down the video shown by the committee. And according to Baier, the presentation made Donald Trump look really bad.
Baier told viewers:
“My point was is that if this was a planned thing, the filmmakers with the Proud Boys and they passed by the speech, they go right to this confrontation, and then it happens. And they see only 1 or 2 guards. Why they didn’t have more security at that point is really a big question.
But the focus seems to be the target of President Trump, and he looks really bad in this presentation. He’s just watching the TVs and kinda applauding what’s happening. And then, Liz Cheney says that maybe Mike Pence maybe ‘deserves to be hung’. Mark Short said the vice president didn’t hear that at the time. He didn’t hear the chants. He didn’t talk to President Trump that day. He actually didn’t talk to him for 5 days after that.”
