Fox News, as we all know it, is a very conservative one-sided news network. They do what they can to downplay the seriousness of that bad things Donald Trump does.
In their latest attempt to diminish a breaking story into something not so important, Fox News Channel’s morning show “Fox & Friends” tweeted out Tuesday Morning:
“If you missed yesterday’s congressional hearing with FBI Dir. James Comey, you didn’t miss much…”

They shared a video with the tweet that was only 25 seconds of Comey declining to comment in various ways, including stating on multiple occasions, “same answer” and “I’m not going to comment on that.”
But that’s not how the testimony went at all. Comey’s testimony lasted five hours and 20 minutes as he fielded dozens of questions from Democratic and Republican members of the House Intelligence Committee.
Comey also publicly confirmed that the FBI is in the middle of an investigation between the Trump campaign and the Russian government.
But Comey didn’t just admit to a Russia investigation, he also shot down Trump’s claims that former President Obama wiretapped Trump Tower prior to the election.
Tuesday’s episode of “Fox & Friends” also featured an interview with conservative radio talk show host and Fox News contributor Laura Ingraham.
Ingraham said that Democrats and the media want Trump impeached and are focusing heavily on alleged ties between Russia and Trump’s campaign in an effort to get him out of office.
“They want him out. They want him to resign or be impeached. Let’s be really blunt with what’s going on here,” Ingraham said.
