‘Sounds like you don’t care’: Warren gets unexpected push-back on ‘The View’ when she bashes Fox News

Democrat presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren received pushback from nearly every host of “The View” Thursday — including notoriously anti-conservative and anti-Christian host Joy Behar — when she doubled down on her vow to never appear on Fox News.

Leading the charge against the fake Native American Indian, conservative commentator Meghan McCain remarked that turning down the opportunity to participate in a town hall on the most successful news network in America seems “a little shortsighted.”

Watch the full discussion below:

“Why not give this a second look?” she said. “Because I really do think it’s a mistake. It’s such a huge audience. It’s such an interesting part of the country that watches.”

Warren replied by touting the same hateful, divisive conspiracy theory about how Fox News is allegedly a “hate-for-profit” scam (whatever that means) that she’s been spouting for weeks.

She initially trotted out the conspiracy theory earlier this month:

“I want to go everywhere. … I’ve been to 18 states,” she said. “I was just in Kermit, West Virginia where they describe it as the reddest of the red. And we did a town hall where there were folks who quite openly said I voted for Donald Trump, may vote for him again, but wanted to hear what I had to say, and wanted selfies by the time we got to the end. That’s a good thing.”

That claim seems about as credible as socialist Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s far-fetched claim that a Trump supporter stopped by her office to express his support for her.

“I’ve been to a lot of different places, not just our early battleground states but to Utah, to Mississippi, to Alabama, to Tennessee and I want to keep doing that,” Warren continued. “But here’s the deal about Fox News executives — and that is they’re running a hate-for-profit scam.”

This was the astonishing moment that Behar interjected to say, “Not all of them.”

Not any of them, actually. Despite claims otherwise from congressional Democrats and their allies in what some have described as the “propaganda media,” there’s nothing hateful about discussing valid concerns vis-a-vis changes in demographicsillegal immigration, anti-white racism, etc.

There is however something starkly hateful about labeling black conservatives “Uncle Toms” (CNN), referring to the 62+ million Americans who voted for Trump as “toothless rubes” (CNN) and accusing all white people of voting “with their whiteness” (MSNBC).

Yet for some reason, Warren continues to appear on the networks cited above …

Dovetailing back to the discussion on “The View,” Warren responded to Behar’s half-correct criticism by trotting out a couple more stunningly glaring lies.

“[W]e have to admit, they’re out there pushing white nationalists at the time when people are marching in Charlottesville,” she said. “They give a platform to people who describe immigration as making our country poorer and dirtier. They attack a young man and try to sully his reputation after he’s murdered just because they think it’ll be a good attack on Democrats.”

Fox News is not pushing white nationalism. Nor did anyone at Fox News ever suggest immigration makes America poorer and dirtier. FNC host Tucker Carlson did correctly note though illegal aliens do bring a lack of skills and a tendency toward criminality with them.

As for Warren’s latter remark, it’s unclear which “young man” she’d been referencing. What’s known is that the entire mainstream media tried only months earlier to smear a group of high school-aged teenagers just because they were white and supported the president.

“So, here’s the deal about those town halls, they make a lot of money off those town halls,” Warren continued. “Right now advertisers are getting really antsy about being with Fox on a regular basis because they don’t want their brands associated with them.”

“We do town halls, we bring in a big Democratic audience to watch that night, and then the sales reps for Fox come out and say, oh, look, look at our high numbers, and look how even-handed we are. I’m just not going to give them a full hour to help raise money and help get credibility because they were willing to talk to me for an hour. I’m not.”

McCain then tried one last time to reach Warren.

“I hear your explanation. I hear it. I was really proud to work at Fox News,” she said. “I don’t consider them a racist organization. I will say that there are so many people that watch that are really good people. And I just think you’re alienating an audience, and for me, it just sounds like you don’t care about the people who watch Fox News.”

Nor does it sound like she cares for the truth …

“I care,” Warren said in rebuttal. “And I’m going to find a thousand ways to reach out. Look, I’ve done, I think it’s 88 town halls now. I’ve taken 1100 questions. I go all across the country. I want to talk to people and find as many ways to reach out as I can. I’m just not going to help the Fox News executives raise money off my name.”

“Follow the money,” co-host Sunny Hostin then said.

“I just want to — I want to just say we should be very careful sometimes, because you scratch the surface wherever you go and cockroaches run out everywhere,” co-host Whoopi Goldberg said next.

It’s unclear what she meant by that.

Hostin concluded the discussion by pointing out that, despite Warren’s depiction of FNC as a hateful place full of conservatives, it does contain a few Democrat “journalists.”

“There are journalists like Shep Smith and — and Chris Wallace that are doing fair and balanced journalism there,” she said.

“But a town hall is about their ability to get Democratic voters to tune in, right, to watch, Democratic primary voters who want to see this, and to be able to sell advertising space on the argument that advertisers can ignore the really horrible stuff that they continue to give a platform for,” Warren replied. “It’s not 100 percent it’s just what they have a platform for. I just don’t want to be part of that. I’ll keep reaching out but not that way.”

In fairness to Warren, most Fox News viewers are likely quite uninterested in hearing her lies.
