“Fox News host Pete Hegseth made the stunning claim that the media and Democrats who publicly comment about Russian interference in U.S. elections are helping Russia “sow discord and disinformation and delegitimize our Republic.”
To make sure his point was not lost to Fox & Friends viewers, he added “they are willing to parrot what The Kremlin is saying. They’re the agents of Russia. Not Donald Trump, not this White House.”
Hyperbole or genuine analysis? Hard to say anymore more in this super-divided world of parallel narratives, but the reporting is that this information is coming from Trump’s own intel community.
The Fox Friends segment opened with a montage of numerous on-air reports from MSNBC, CNN and ABC News reporting on a recent New York Times article about ongoing Russian interference. A staffer of now-ousted Acting DNI Joseph Maguire briefed the House Intelligence Committee in a classified setting that the Russians are trying to meddle in the 2020 election to assist in getting President Trump elected, but also to sway the Democratic primary race.”
