Fox’s Neil Cavuto fires back at Trump for attacking Chris Wallace: ‘We’re not entitled to praise you’

This Monday, Fox News host Neil Cavuto took President Trump to task over his recent attacks on Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace, where the President slammed Wallace as “nasty” and “obnoxious” in response to an interview Wallace conducted with House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) regarding the House impeachment inquiry targeting Trump.

“What makes something fake news?” Cavuto asked. “I would assume if the news being reported is fake or wrong and the person presenting that news knows it is fake or wrong that is bad. But what if the news being reported is accurate?”

“My colleague Chris Wallace has discovered again the president doesn’t distinguish,” Cavuto added.

In conclusion, Cavuto pointed out that Trump isn’t entitled to constant glowing coverage of his presidency from Fox.

“People will always see things through the prism of their own set of beliefs. I get that,” he said. “The best we can do as journalists is be fair to all, including you, Mr. President. That’s not fake doing that. What is fake is not doing that. What is fake is saying Fox never used to do that. Mr. President, we have always done that.”
