Fox News took a decidedly left turn after the election.
But no one was prepared for this.
And Fox News betrayed Kayleigh McEnany in one way that will make Trump’s blood boil.
As Black Eye Politics reports:
There is a concerted effort on the left to “cancel” former Trump administration officials by ruining them financially.
Left-wing activist groups organize online mobs to harass companies that even think of hiring former Trump officials.
And now it looks like Kayleigh McEnany is the latest victim of this reign of terror.
The George Soros-funded Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington published a financial disclosure form filed by McEnany revealing that in her final months as President Trump’s press secretary she secured a position as a Fox News contributor beginning after Trump’s time in office ended.
Fox News disputed the report and claimed they had no agreement with McEnany.
The Hill exclusively reported:
A Fox News spokesperson said McEnany “is not currently an employee or contributor” at the network.
McEnany and Fox held initial conversations after the 2020 election about a role, but those discussions were paused, according to a source familiar with the matter. The network does remain open to hiring her in the future, the source said, given it does “not condone cancel culture.”
Fox News claimed they would never give in to cancel culture.
But many Trump supporters and Fox News viewers wondered if McEnany was in fact canceled.
Activists at CNN began pressuring cable providers to drop Fox News.
The Washington Post’s Margaret Sullivan and MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough both used their media platforms to demand commercial sponsors boycott Fox News and starve the network out of business by draining its lifeblood of advertiser revenue.
McEnany also worked as the press secretary for the Trump campaign.
In that capacity, she echoed the President’s claims of voter fraud and defended Trump contesting the election up until the day Congress certified the Electoral College results on January 6.
That was the day rioters broke into the Capitol and every major institution in America united to excommunicate the President and his aides from public life.
Fox News founder Rupert Murdoch just delivered a major speech vowing Fox News would never bow to cancel culture.
The network’s statement announcing McEnany was not employed by Fox made the same claim.
But many Trump supporters are wondering if Fox did in effect cancel McEnany by putting her potential employment on ice to deflect any financial fallout by pushing her debut back several months in hopes the controversy surrounding the riot at the Capitol goes away.
