“Fox & Friends” unveiled a curious new spin in the ever-unfolding drama of Donna Brazile’s book tour, with the show co-hosts and guest Kayleigh Mcenany blasting the mainstream media for downplaying Brazile and her explosive allegations.
“Can we really trust many in the media to have fair and balanced coverage about the [scandal] unfolding at the DNC?” asked Brian Kilmeade.
The answer to that question was “no” according to Mcenany, who left her position as a CNN contributor in August to take on a new role as a spokesperson for the Republican National Committee.
“The radio silence from the media is really puzzling,” she said. “In the wake of these allegations you had a sitting Democratic senator Elizabeth Warren coming out and saying yes this election was rigged and not a single network not ABC, NBC, CBS, devoted one second to these claims. It’s appalling.”
Brazile’s revelation of an ethically questionable fundraising deal between the Clinton campaign and the DNC has been front and center among the networks all week and Brazile has personally stormed newsroom sets on “Morning Joe,” “All In,” “This Week,” “The View,” and “CBS This Morning”
But it just wasn’t enough for Mcenany.
“They choose to ignore this because it’s the Democratic party,” she continued. “They spend so much breathless time covering this Russian campaign collusion conspiracy theory.”
In addition to news of the fundraising deal, Brazile also raised eyebrows with claims she considered dumping Clinton from the ticket after she fainted at a September 11 event in New York City. She also revived renewed speculation about the unsolved murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich.
