In a segment on Dana Perino’s ‘The Daily Briefing’, following the Trump team’s election fraud presser, Fisher trashed Giuliani’s claims, calling the news conference “bold and baseless”.
“So much of what he said was simply not true, or has already been thrown out in court,” Fisher continued, saying Giuliani had opened with “this really bold and baseless claim” about a “nationwide conspiracy,” but failed to “provide any hard evidence” to support his claims.
Tucker Carlson felt compelled to call out his own FNC colleague for her lazy reporting and lack of journalistic credibility.
Trump Attorney, Jenna Ellis, later appeared on Newmax TV’s Stinchfield show.
“Jenna, I don’t know what’s going on with Fox News,” a testy Stinchfield said after airing that clip, “but they just called Mayor Rudy Giuliani a liar. Your reaction?”
“Well, unfortunately for Kristin Fisher, she doesn’t understand how the legal process works, and that was, frankly, embarrassing for her,” Ellis said.
“She is not sitting on any federal court that I’m aware of, she hasn’t been looking at this,” Ellis added. “The media really needs to take this seriously and actually allow the facts to be shown and cover this as responsible journalists.”
“Fox is off the rails,” Stinchfield noted. “They don’t believe in an attorney presenting a case. An attorney, the likes of Rudy Giuliani, who has won a lot of cases, including taking down the mafia — fitting here, in this case, by the way.”
