(DCWatchdog.com) – Dick Morris — the American political author and commentator who previously worked as a pollster and was an advisor to Bill and Hillary Clinton before switching his allegiance to conservatives — recently slammed Fox News as anti-Trump in an interview on Newsmax, where he also hosts a show.
According to Morris, Fox News has submitted to the political will of Democrats and now wants Florida Governor Ron DeSantis to beat former President Donald Trump for the 2024 GOP presidential nomination because Democrats are afraid of a Trump candidacy.
As Newsmax reports in “Dick Morris: Fox News Wants Primary Against Trump“:
“Former presidential adviser Dick Morris told Newsmax on Monday that Fox News is doing everything it can to create a GOP primary fight opposing Donald Trump — from ignoring the former president to promoting a candidacy for Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis…
“‘[The Democrats have] censored, they switched Fox News from Republican to Democrat, and they are now basically…Newsmax is the only organ that’s covering Trump,’ Morris said on “John Bachman Now.”
“‘And in the meantime, Fox is doing everything it can to promote DeSantis. He’s on the air all the time. They say nice things about him. Trump hasn’t been on for three-and-a-half months, and this is because the…Democrats are scared to death of Trump, and they know they have to try to beat him in the primary.'” [emphasis added]
