This morning I noticed Fox anchor after Fox anchor expressed concerns about DACA’s (Deferred Action for Children Arrivals) end.
Brian Kilmeade, for one, suggested Trump should allow DACA in exchange for building the wall. Stuart Varney joined in, too, as did others like Neil Cavuto.
The “right” leaning network is not so right when it comes to rule of law and illegals.
If you recall, Obama’s executive order on this is not Constitutional. Obama himself admitted this earlier when he said, “My cabinet has been working very hard on trying to get it done, but ultimately, I think somebody said the other day, I am president, I am not king,” Obama told Univision in October 2010, when asked why he had yet to achieve comprehensive immigration reform.”
But those were just words and he ditched them and did DACA anyhow. So he gave illegal aliens brought to the U.S. as minors the promise that they wouldn’t be deported and gave them work authorizations and access to Social Security and other government benefits.
Fox, evidently, is fine with this. They certainly were during the GOP primary debates. The network tilted pro immigrant Jeb! and later Gang of Eight member Marco Rubio. Do you remember them asking Rubio anything about his Gang of Eight membership then? No. It would have looked bad for him. Murdoch supported these two because they advanced policies beneficial to Murdoch, The Chamber of Commerce and GOPe elites.
Breitbart has written: “Rupert Murdoch, Fox News’ founder, is the co-chair of what is arguably one of the nation’s most powerful immigration lobbying firms, the Partnership for a New American Economy. Via his lobbying firm, Murdoch endorsed Marco Rubio’s Gang of Eight immigration bill, as well as Rubio’s 2015 immigration expansion bill, and has expressed his support for Rubio’s desire to grant citizenship– and, thereby, voting privileges and welfare access– to illegal aliens.”
Pundit Ann Coulter, a frequent guest on Fox, has noticed their bias, too. She said, the “Rupert Murdoch enterprise is implacably pro-open borders, pro-amnesty and, consequently, anti-Trump.
“You won’t read about Fox News’s open-borders philosophy in National Review. You won’t hear about it on almost any ‘conservative’ webpages, magazines, radio shows, Twitter feeds or blogs,” Coulter writes.
She continued: “Fox News is the only game in town for conservative commentators and politicians. That’s why no other candidate would dare cross Fox… Viewers beware: The only ‘conservative’ opinion allowed on Fox News involves dissolving the nation’s borders.”
Coulter asserts that there is a real danger in continuing to perpetuate the charade that Fox News represents the “conservative” alternative: “One of the biggest problems facing the nation is that viewers think of Fox as the ‘conservative’ network. If NBC or ABC were this spiteful to Trump, everyone would see it for what it is: political bias. Your enemies can never hurt you; only your ‘friends’ can.”
Coulter explains the network’s bias presents itself not so much in what the Fox News hosts say, but rather in what the network’s hosts do not say:
“One of the hardest things to notice is what you’re not being told. Immigration is the issue shaking up this entire election and driving Trump to the top of the polls. But at Fox News, immigration is Issue No. 22 — after Iran, Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Russia, Russian President Vladimir Putin, Benghazi, Hillary Clinton’s emails, ISIS, ISIS, ISIS, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the Export-Import Bank, entitlements reform, ISIS and everything else.”
“Fox News’s bias is more insidious,” Coulter writes.
Look to see how they react to the DACA decision now. And, what they don’t mention.
