Fox News rebukes top anchorman after speech at Trump's final rally

  • Voters cast their ballots early for the midterm elections at the Government & Judicial Center in Noblesville Ind. Tuesday Oct. 23 2018

President Trump spoke with Fox News" Sean Hannity Monday night following his signature "Make America Great Again' rally in Missouri; saying the booming economy and soaring recovery will bring all Americans together.

Hannity and the president have had a close bond for years - before the 2016 election, Trump falsely claimed that he had been against the Iraq war and when pressed for evidence of that position, he said that he and Hannity used to have "arguments" about the war.

Officials also called the issue a distraction and said it "has been addressed".

"The whole thing is just so embarrassing that this guy basically has free rein to do whatever he wants, and management is either helpless or uninterested in doing anything about it", one Fox News employee told CNN. This was NOT planned.

Stay with Fox News Channel for the best election coverage, and don't miss Hannity's big interview with the president tonight at 9:00pm ET.

"They do awesome work day in and day out in a fair and balanced way", he said on Twitter.

Hannity and Pirro - two of the network's most fervent fans of the president - both bounded on stage after Trump invited them to join him at his final rally before the midterm elections. The response was that Hannity is "an opinion talk-show host". In 2010, he was ordered not to broadcast his program as part of a Tea Party rally originating from Cincinnati.

He set fundraising records and made Cruz work for the victory, but Cruz ultimately pulled out a three-point victory. Cruz argued that his opponent's support for gun control and universal health care were too liberal for Texas.

Trump did not care for the soft-focus ad, which notably did not mention him, according to a person familiar with the president's thinking who was not authorized to speak publicly.

Fox has completely stopped pretending to be a news organization at this point and they are fully embracing their reputation as a propaganda outlet for the Trump administration.

The network had tried earlier on Monday to establish distance between Hannity and Trump's campaign, which had billed Hannity as a "special guest" at the rally. It came after Hannity's prime-time show aired from the rally site, during which he pleaded with viewers to vote Republican on Tuesday to support Trump, and his opening monologue echoed a campaign slogan seen on signs at the arena: "Promises made, promises kept". It was a group that included his own Fox News colleagues. Pirro, a former NY state attorney general who has a weekend show on Fox, spoke after him.

During his prime-time Fox show, Hannity played the role of cheerleader from the side as the crowd waited for Trump's appearance.

It wasn't clear what exactly the woman was treated for, but she was described in news reports as "elderly".

Alisyn Camerota, a former Fox News anchor who now hosts a morning show on CNN, said executives at Fox "know vaguely" that they're not supposed to have one of their hosts endorse a candidate or party, but that Hannity can't help himself.
