Pro-Trump pundit Raheem Kassam blasted Fox News for, in his opinion, distinctly moving left in its programming during an interview with Trump campaign adviser and former Bernie Sanders backer Harlan Hill on The National Pulse TV show.
Fox News had just essentially banned Hill from the network for tweeting about Kamala Harris’ VP debate performance, stating that she “comes off as such an insufferable lying b***h.”
While Hill was conciliatory about Fox News because “at the end of the day, they are the biggest bulwark against the leftist media that we have,” Kassam strongly rejected the premise based on the way the channel is trending. “I don’t think Fox News is a bulwark against the left at all, I think they are enablers of the left,” he declared.
Trump supporter Kassam then gave a litany of folks he claims are no longer welcome on Fox News such as Ann Coulter, Trish Regan, and others. In an apparent reference to Tucker Carlson Tonight, The National Pulse website editor in chief observed that “we get an hour of conservative programming, maybe two, if you include Laura [Ingraham]. I’m not interested in what Sean Hannity has to say anymore, because Sean Hannity says the same thing every day.”
He pointed out that Fox runs paid ads for the Never Trump Lincoln Project and constantly gives a megaphone to Never Trumpers. He also alluded to liberal contributors like Donna Brazile, who reportedly gave Hillary Clinton debate questions in advance in the 2016 election cycle. Kassam also recalled how Fox News’ Outnumbered cut off Newt Gingrich for trying to call attention to how left-wing billionaire George Soros is interfering with American politics. “What is this bulwark against the left? It’s gone. Let it go.”
Apparently referring to conservative audiences, Kassam added that “Drudge doesn’t like you anymore, and Fox doesn’t like you anymore. Embrace the suck.”
Watch a portion of the interview below:
Hill explained that he has appeared on Fox News platforms hundreds of times over a five-year period and that the network has been very good to him. “As long Tucker, Ingraham, and a few other people are there, I’m not going to speak ill of Fox.”
“Well, I’ll do it for you,” Kassam quipped. In a satirical callback to the tweet that got Hill into trouble, Kassam joked about FNC that “it’s an insufferable, lying…”
“It’s becoming increasingly clear to people, every single day, that it has just gone so far away from its purpose,” Kassam concluded, adding that Fox News executives have allegedly donated millions to the Joe Biden presidential campaign.
Hill seemed to maintain that banning commentators is a disheartening PR move because it’s “something they have to do because they don’t have the stomach, the appetite, to stand up for people that have been there for years, producing content with them.”
After the interview streamed on Real America’s Voice News, Mediaite contacted Kassam about whether his own future appearances on Fox News might be in jeopardy.
“I trust the producers and bookers who reach out to me to understand how banning Harlan Hill and not banning people who call Donald Trump a fascist is a silly little move designed to kowtow to the left,” Raheem Kassam responded.
Parenthetically, Rupert Murdoch’s son James and his wife reportedly donated $615,000 each to the Biden campaign. On July 31, 2020, James Murdoch stepped down from the board of News Corp, which is the sister company of FNC’s parent company, Fox Corp., because of disagreements over some of the editorial content.
