Lines between Fox News and White House become blurred in Trump’s final months

-

The texts, revealed by CNN, show how the lines between Fox News and the Trump White House had become blurred in Trump’s final months. On election day 2021 Hannity, the second-most-watched host on Fox News, was texting Meadows. Asked which states he particularly needed to “push” – to encourage people to vote.

As chairman and CEO of Fox News, Ailes had close control over the network’s editorial policy.

He alone would make decisions in a direction. As Trump flailed in the dying days of his presidency, there was no Ailes-like figure to steer the coverage. Trump’s White House was also getting guidance from some of the best-known personalities.

On 29 November, an hour before Trump was to sit down for a first interview. Since losing the election, the president received a bit of help with his preparation; from Bartiromo, who sent her list of questions to Meadows, along with a suggestion.

Less conventionally, Trump’s White House was also getting guidance from some of Fox News’ best-known personalities. The direct interactions between Trump’s administration and News channel hosts Sean Hannity and Maria Bartiromo. It was revealed in leaked text messages from his phone of Mark Meadows. Trump’s chief of staff during the November election and the January 6 insurrection.

Meadows exchanged more than 80 text messages with Hannity between 3 November and 20 January, when Joe Biden was inaugurated. CNN obtained 2,319 of Meadows’s texts, which the former chief of staff had provided to the House select committee.

Fox News personalities had their own lines in the White House. The committee had previously released texts which showed Ingraham and Kilmeade pleading with Trump to intervene as his supporters swarmed the Capitol.

The interaction between Fox News and Trump’s White House appears to have flowed both ways. Under Bush’s administration, it seemed to be the politicians leading the line, with Fox News supporting the president’s policies. Under Trump, it wasn’t so clear who was in charge of policy.
