Fox News Hits Back On Rumors That It Won’t Air The Mueller Testimony
Fox News hit back at multiple rumors throughout the week that the network is not airing the Mueller testimony Wednesday.
Fox aired a promotion, a press release and has a section about covering the Mueller report on its website. Some media figures originally said Fox News was not airing the Mueller hearings, later walking back the remarks through Twitter.
“Fox isn’t showing Mueller’s testimony Wednesday. Trump is afraid of what will happen if his base gets to hear Mueller’s testimony for themselves,” MSNBC contributor Joyce Vance tweeted Monday.
The tweet was deleted, and Vance later posted the first tweet was meant “ironically.”
“I’ve deleted an earlier tweet I intended ironically, but that some took as factual regarding Fox news coverage of Mueller’s testimony,” she said. “My apologies to anyone I confused. I don’t like to delete tweets but that seems a better course than unintentionally misinforming people.”
MSNBC guest and Republican strategist Rick Wilson told “Deadline: White House” host Nicolle Wallace on Monday that Fox News would not be covering the hearingWednesday. Wilson later tweeted a correction.
