During Wednesday’s Special Report, Fox News Channel anchor Bret Baier predicted that the rest of the media would refuse to cover former FBI Director James Comey getting chewed out and admitting to major problems with his Russia investigation. “I guarantee you it's not getting a lot of coverage on other networks and that is the former FBI Director Jim Comey testifying on Capitol Hill,” he said. And how right he was!
ABC’s World News Tonight, CBS Evening News, and NBC Nightly News refused to cover how Comey had admitted: “There were ‘embarrassing’ and ‘sloppy’ mistakes, in his words, in the applications to the FISA court for surveillance warrants on a former Trump campaign aid.”
Instead, the networks continued to lie and claim President Trump “refused” to condemn racists, even though he did so at the presidential debate Tuesday and again at the White House the next day.
“Former FBI Director James Comey continued to claim he was unaware of major issues with surveillance warrants used to eavesdrop on a former Trump campaign aid wrongly suspected of being a Russian agent,” reported chief congressional correspondent Mike Emanuel. He also noted that Comey admitted to problems with the investigation he was overseeing.
