No one could believe what they were seeing.
Fox News Channel prides itself on not backing down in the face of public pressure.
But now Fox News offered one on-air apology that left viewers speechless.
On a recent broadcast of “Outnumbered,” multiple co-hosts shouted down RINO former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich after Gingrich accurately stated that George Soros spent millions of dollars to elect left-wing local District Attorneys that are now letting rioters out of jail.
Fox News viewers could not believe some of the network’s high-profile hosts acquiesced to the left’s regime of thought control which maintained that all criticism of George Soros is off limits because it is supposedly “anti-Semitic.”
The Blaze TV founder, Glenn Beck, ripped the hosts for a failure to defend free speech Fox News on Twitter.
“This is the power of #GeorgeSoros,” Beck wrote on social media. “This is how the media and now Fox News bows down at his feet. Everything said here is public record. Have you ever seen Fox come to a complete halt like this? Why?”
The blowback against Fox for caving to catechisms of political correctness and left-wing speech control exploded on social media.
On the next broadcast of “Outnumbered,” host Harris Faulkner apologized for her co-hosts silencing Gingrich.
“So, we had a little incident on the show yesterday that was not smooth,” Faulkner stated. “While I was leading that segment, we had interruptions, and I sat silently while all of that played out. Also not ideal.”
Faulkner added that her co-hosts were wrong to stifle debate and that Fox News was not a place for safe spaces.
“Our guest, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who is beloved and needed to be allowed to speak with the openness and respect that the show was all about, was interrupted,” Faulkner continued. “Do we debate with fire here? Yes. But we must also give each other the space to express ourselves.”
The last four years have seen the left rip off the mask and expose themselves as totalitarians.
Ever since Donald Trump won office, the left has sought to control the political environment by controlling what political views Americans are allowed to express in public.
Social media companies now wage a campaign of censorship by banning Trump supporters and changing their algorithms to suppress conservative speech.
The success of that pressure campaign even extended to Fox News where hosts falsely claimed that bringing attention to the fact that George Soros pumped eight million dollars into local District Attorney races through a super PAC was somehow a conspiracy theory or anti-Semitic.
Fortunately Fox News Channel quickly corrected course and Harris Faulkner apologized the next day.
