Fox News Gives Donald Trump A Pass On Birther Crusade It Helped Fuel
Huffington Post - 5 months
NEW YORK ― Since Donald Trump finally admitted last week that President Barack Obama was born in the United States, the Republican nominee has done more than two hours of interviews with Fox News and Fox Business hosts. Yet the toxic crusade that Trump pushed for five years, and which was amplified through several appearances on Fox News in early 2011, hasn’t come up.  Trump briefly acknowledged on Friday, Sept. 16, that Obama was born in the U.S., a fact long clear to anyone who was not a fringe conspiracy theorist. He did so that morning only after promoting his new Washington, D.C., hotel and ceding the microphone to a stream of veterans praising him ― a spectacle the cable networks carried for more than 20 minutes before any actual news was made. Reporters, who had been given the impression that Trump would take questions at the event, were left shouting their queries to no avail.  Trump’s remarks that day left several unaddressed issues, including why he kept peddlin ...

How Megyn Kelly's Silence Signaled the Worst for Roger Ailes
ABC News - 7 months
The silence was the sign. Roger Ailes, the powerful Fox News chief, first realized his career at the helm of the network he built was in jeopardy when evening anchor Megyn Kelly refused repeated overtures to issue a public statement of support, according to a source familiar with the internal discussions. Greta Van Susteren, Bill O’Reilly and Maria Bartiromo had already defended Ailes. But Kelly was invisible -– ominously so. At the center of this year’s presidential campaign, Kelly was being asked, cajoled and even pressured outright to pledge her support for Ailes in the first days after sex-harassment claims were lodged, two sources said. And when Kelly declined to play along, a sense of doom quickly creeped over Ailes and his cabinet of advisers. “And what about Megyn?” was the question asked inside Ailes’ war room. “There’s a problem with Megyn. Let’s talk offline.” The following is an account from inside Fox, based on interviews with multiple sources with direct... ...
