Jennifer Griffin has fired at President Donald Trump later he questioned her reporting,” after President Donald Trump signaled on Twitter which Griffin”must be fired” after she confirmed reporting from The Atlantic that comprehensive President Trump repeatedly disparaging members of the army.
Jennifer Griffin of Fox News Did Not Confirm ‘Most Salacious‘ Part of Atlantic Story https://t.co/rUpbSWhHac via @BreitbartNews All refuted by many witnesses. Jennifer Griffin should be fired for this kind of reporting. Never even called us for comment. @FoxNews is gone!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 5, 2020
For decades, Fox News has worked to undermine and discredit the work of other press organizations that have reported damning details of President Trump and his administration. However, on Friday, something unusual happened: The network turned into a skeptical eye toward reporting from its correspondent.
After spending a lot of the afternoon bashing The Atlantic to get Jeffrey Goldberg’s jarring report that stated Trump had disparaged military members who died in service to the nation, Fox News itself confirmed crucial aspects of it. In a lengthy Twitter thread, correspondent Jennifer Griffin said she’d supported Trump disparaged veterans; did not need to honor the deceased in the Aisne-Marne Cemetery; also didn’t need to lower flags after the death of John McCain.
A genuine news company will aggressively tout it had matched a lot of the reporting at the middle of the biggest news story of the day — particularly since Fox rarely produces on first reporting of its own. And it could have mattered because Fox viewers are so frequently protected from the truth. But Fox didn’t proudly maintain Griffin’s reporting. Rather, it behaved as though it were humiliated and it.
The country’s war dead, and wounded veterans.
In a look on Cavuto Live Saturday, Griffin defended her coverage:”My sources aren’t anonymous to me and I doubt they are anonymous to the president,” Griffin told Neil Cavuto. “I will tell you that my resources will be unimpeachable.”
Cavuto mentioned that”you are a very good reporterand then some. Jennifer Griffin following the narrative. She is fairly meticulous in regards to making sure all the I’s are dotted and the t’s are crossed.”
Griffin also stood from the credibility of her resources, noting that they are not anonymous to that she doubts”they’re unknown to the president,” as well. She proceeded to explain that folks have been unwilling to step forward and speak about the President, after seeing the way he”destroyed” people who have crossed him and how he’s”weaponized” Twitter.
Trump yesterday afternoon: “And we need everybody to be careful, to apply common sense, and do all of the things that we’ve told you to do as quickly — as much as you can — social distancing, wearing a mask whenever the distancing is not possible..” https://t.co/TvdaTRcvhZ— Brit Hume (@brithume) September 6, 2020
Fox News Senior Political Analyst Brit Hume provided a fiery defense against his colleague Jennifer Griffin after she came under fire for confirming a lot of report by The Atlantic that alleges President Donald Trump made disparaging comments about U.S. military service members.
Hume leapt to the defense for his colleague in response to a Saturday tweet from Steve Milloy, a Fox contributor that bills himself as”perhaps the most influential climate science fiction,” which suggested that Griffin was suffering from”Stockholm Syndrome” or was reporting”as educated” from a feeling of dread.

“That is bullshit,” Hume tweeted in response to Milloy. “Jen plays it straight and always gets.”
