Former Fox News primetime host Bill O’Reilly said that the management at Fox News all changed, and that’s the reason why Fox News is standing with CNN in the left-wing network’s plot to get showman Jim Acosta his permanent White House press pass back.
O’Reilly noted that he is not disparaging Fox News, but he made it very clear that the new management seeks approval from the fancy insiders on the East Coast Acela route, which Fox never would have done under previous management — meaning, presumably, the late Roger Ailes.
“The current management there wants to be part of the establishment media,” O’Reilly said. “That’s what it wants. Doesn’t want to be criticized by the New York Times and the Washington Post. Doesn’t want to be attacked by Media Matters. Doesn’t want that anymore. Wants to be part of the crew. Part of the gang. So what better way? The gang’s all behind Jim Acosta. So that’s what’s going on there, in my humble opinion.”
I discussed the Jim Acosta saga on a recent episode of Howley Reports:
One America News, Fox’s foremost rival for TV market share, seized on the opportunity to contrast with their competitor. Peter D’Abrosca reported:
One of the leading alternative news networks in America will file an amicus brief in support of the White House and President Donald J. Trump as they defend themselves against a lawsuit filed by fake news CNN.
“WE are going to file in the CNN vs White House court an Amicus Brief in favor of the White House. Acosta’s actions are stopping our people from getting their questions answered, so that we can give our audience the real news direct from our President,” said One America News’ CEO Robert Herring.
“Can’t believe Fox is on the other side, but they have direct communication to the President. We are lucky if we get a five minute interview once a quarter,” he continued.
OAN’s motivation could be to snag some of the market share from right-wing news competitor Fox, which surprisingly filed a brief in support of CNN in the lawsuit. Fox News president Jay Wallace accused the White House of “weaponizing” press passes in a statement of support for the CNN suit.
“Fox News supports CNN in its legal effort to regain its White House reporter’s press credential.” President of Fox said in a statement. “We intend to find an amicus brief with the U.S. District Court. Secret Service passes for Working White House journalists should never be weaponized. While we don’t condone the growing antagonistic by both the President and the press at recent media avails, we do support a free press, access and open exchanges for the American people.”
The move angered many Fox viewers, with whom the network was already on thin ice.
CNN is taking the White House to court on the grounds of a First Amendment violation, which has been ridiculed as flatly absurd by many conservative attorneys.
“I just read CNN’s lawsuit against the administration over Jim Acosta. It’s a very weak case, but if they get before an Obama or Clinton district judge, who knows,” constitutional lawyer and conservative radio host Mark Levin said.
“Nonetheless, it is a ridiculous suit. CNN still has reporters at the White House and in the presidential press conferences; Acosta does not have a constitutional right to be physically present in the press room, anymore than the scores of media outlets that do not; Acosta can watch the press conference from outside the White House grounds as they are televised; the president cannot be compelled by any court to actually call on any particular reporter during a press conference,” he continued.
“Acosta does not have a constitutional right to disrupt the press conference with his various antics anymore than any other reporter; and, a president is not constitutionally compelled to hold a presidential press conference. The courts should stay out of this on separation of powers grounds, among other things. No one is preventing Acosta from reporting or CNN from broadcasting.”
Dana White Vows No Censorship in UFC After Media Campaign Against Pro-Trump Fighter Colby Covington
White is standing for free speech.
UFC promoter Dana White is standing strong for free speech, vowing never to “muzzle anybody” after pro-Trump fighter Colby Covington was targeted by a media campaign for making controversial statements following a huge victory last week.
“These guys all have their own causes, things, their own beliefs. We don’t muzzle anybody here,” White said. “We let everybody speak their mind.”
Covington made some candid comments following his defeat of Tyron Woodley at UFC on ESPN+ 36 in which he dominated the former champion who had professed his support for Black Lives Matter. He took the opportunity to gloat following his big victory.
“He’s standing up for lifelong criminals,” Covington said regarding his opponent Woodley. “The Black Lives Matter is a complete sham. It’s a joke. They’re taking these people that are complete terrorists. They’re taking these people that that are criminals.”
“He’s a communist,” he added. “He’s a Marxist. He stands for criminals. He hates America, and that’s why he got broke tonight.”
Covington also garnered controversy for making remarks about Nigerian-born UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman. Covington referenced his “little tribe” and “smoke signals” while calling Usman out. The fake news media brought up the issue to UFC fighters, who expressed their dismay, in order to push their latest phony race controversy.
“Let’s be real, first and foremost,” bantamweight Sijara Eubanks said. “It wasn’t ‘unfortunate.’ It was flat-out racist. It was racist. It was disgusting. It was quite frankly disappointing.”
“This guy has directly insulted my culture, my brother and many other cultures, and no one says anything,” Middleweight champion Israel Adesanya said. “But it just shows you a mirror. Shows you a mirror to you guys.”
“Reebok is the uniform provider for the UFC, however we do not sponsor Colby Covington. We do not agree with the sentiments he expressed, and stand firm in our belief that Black lives matter. We stand with athletes and communities who are fighting for change,” the corporation that sells shoes made by third-world workers wrote in an official statement.
Not only is White refusing to take disciplinary action against Covington, he is also claiming that Covington’s comments are not even racist and no big deal.
“I don’t know what he said that was racist. I don’t know if I heard anything racist that he said,” White added.
Big League Politics has reported on how White has stood up for pro-freedom causes in the past, such as when he fought tooth and nail against senseless COVID-19 lockdown restrictions preventing him from doing events:
UFC promoter Dana White has refused to succumb to coronavirus hysteria and remains steadfast in his resolve to hold fights even while panic grips the world.
White announced on Monday that his next pay-per-view event will take place on Saturday, April 18 with a new main event in a currently undisclosed location.
White has even said that he intends to hold UFC fights on a weekly basis at a private island, refusing to slowdown even as the global economy shutters due to coronavirus mania. He opened up during an interview with TMZ Sports on Monday.
He told TMZ that the next UFC event will take place in the United States, and he intends to use that venue to host fights for two months. However, White claims he is only “a day or two away” from sealing a deal that would allow him to hold fights in a private island venue, and this would potentially give him a reprieve from all the coronavirus-related hassles that he has dealt with over the past month trying to book fights.
“I have a private island that I’ve secured. We’re getting the infrastructure put in now so I’m going to start doing the international fights too with international fighters,” White explained. “Because I won’t be able to get international fighters – all of them into the U.S. – so I have a private island. I am going to start flying them into the private island and doing international fights from there.”
“So as of April 18, the UFC is back up and running,” White declared.
White has claimed that the fake news media is doing everything in their power to sabotage his efforts, as they want the public to suffer during the worldwide coronavirus lockdown as much as possible.
“A lot of these media guys are absolute and total f**king scumbags,” he said. “As soon as you let them know what you’re doing, all they’re trying to do is f**k up everything that you’ve worked. So I’ve literally told every one of these guys to go f**k themselves and I’m not telling any of them what I’m doing, where I’m doing it.”
White might be wise to consider a career in politics after he retires as UFC promoter.
