Trump Widens His Attack on the Media: “Fox Isn’t Working for Us Anymore”

HeadlineAug 29, 2019

President Trump is continuing his attack on the media, but this week he has a new target: the right-wing news outlet Fox News. In a Twitter message on Wednesday, Trump wrote, “@FoxNews is letting millions of GREAT people down! We have to start looking for a new News Outlet. Fox isn’t working for us anymore!” Fox has long been criticized for its close ties to the Trump administration. According to Media Matters, 18 current or former Trump administration officials used to work at Fox and at least five Trump administration officials now work at Fox, including former White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who was hired last week.
