FALSE: CNN’s Oliver Darcy Claims Fox Information ‘Ignored’ Dispute Over 1/6 Paperwork


Brad Slager at RedState experiences CNN’s Oliver Darcy proved he was a horrible Fox Information-buster. On 8 pm at Friday, Darcy’s “Dependable Sources” e-newsletter led with the headline “The story lacking from Fox’s air.” Inside, Darcy insisted:

Fox conspicuously ignores battle over 1/6 docs

As I simply talked about, the highest story on WaPo’s homepage proper now’s associated to the battle over 1/6 paperwork wanted by the Home committee investigating the rebel. However over on Fox Information, it was a non-story. I searched transcripts at 5pm, and located no cases of the right-wing speak community overlaying the story. The truth is, the one time I noticed the problem come up on Fox’s air was when a reporter requested about it within the White Home press briefing. And when that occurred, Fox made the choice to instantly reduce away…

This can be a widespread CNN grievance about Fox Information: that it would not share its obsession over the Capitol Hill riot. CNN and MSNBC could not cease speaking about it.

However he made a rookie media-critic mistake. If you are going to say one thing was “ignored,” that media protection was “zero,” then you definitely higher nail that down. Darcy missed that it had been talked about simply hours earlier than on Particular Report with Bret Baier within the 6 pm hour: 

BAIER: Peter, how’s the White Home responded to a request by President Trump to protect sure paperwork referring to the January sixth episode?

DOOCY: Officers listed here are saying, no. They don’t seem to be going to do it. This January sixth, committee up on Capitol Hill requested about 50 paperwork President Trump and his attorneys claimed that they had been topic to govt privilege.

However officers right here checked out it and so they mentioned no, these paperwork will not be topic to govt privilege anymore. You are not the president, so that is doubtless going to wind up in courtroom quickly. Bret.

Darcy might kvetch the story is under-played in his opinion, however “ignored” isn’t factual. It seems Darcy used the phrase “subpoena” to seek for January 6 tales. Johnny Greenback made enjoyable of that on Twitter: 

A few hours after Darcy pushed “ship” on his e-newsletter, Raymond Arroyo interviewed former congressman Bob Barr on The Ingraham Angle on the executive-privilege battle.
