When Rupert Murdoch turned the reins of Fox over to his left-leaning offspring, that whole “fair and balanced” thing went right out the door. On Wednesday, viewers witnessed a liberal train wreck in progress which will go down as one of the most bizarre and awkward “news” moments in history.
Newt Gingrich ‘Outnumbered’ by Fox hosts
Former Speaker of the House and conservative lawmaker from Georgia, Newt Gingrich, who ran for president in 2012, found himself “Outnumbered” on Wednesday by rabid progressives, over-amped on estrogen, for merely mentioning the name of George Soros. The backlash has already been so intense that Fox co-host Harris Faulkner was forced to issue a formal apology on Thursday for the blatant bias and censorship. Even she admits they were over the top.
“So,” Faulkner soothes, “we had a little incident on the show yesterday that was not smooth.” You could say that, but it would be a gross understatement. It all started when regular Fox guest Melissa Francis brought up “the consequences of violence and rioting.” She pointed out that “for a lot of people, they see the numbers around the destruction and they don’t think about that every one of those businesses is a family, is a face, is a person, struggling with no way to support their family.” The camera then cut to Gingrich and he blasted every anarchist Black Lives Matter supporter in America with a verbal shotgun.
“The number one problem in almost all these cities is George Soros-elected left-wing anti-police pro-criminal district attorneys who refuse to keep people locked up. Just yesterday, they put somebody back on the street who was wanted for two different murders in New York City. You cannot solve this problem. Both Harris and Biden have talked very proudly about what they call progressive district attorneys. Progressive district attorneys are anti-police, pro-criminal, and overwhelmingly elected with George Soros’ money. And they’re a major cause of the violence we’re seeing, because they keep putting the violent criminals back on the street.” Fox host Falkner was stunned speechless.
Why are some in the left so afraid of our mentioning George Soros’ name that they scream anti-semitic? It IS his name. He IS funding pro-criminal,anti police district attorneys. Why is the left afraid of the facts?

No need to bring George Soros into this
Francis was the first to recover, scolding “I’m not sure we need to bring George Soros into this.” Since she opened the door, Gingrich kicked it in. “He paid for it,” Gingrich insisted. “Why can’t we discuss the fact that millions of dollars…” He wasn’t able to finish his sentence because the Fox trio had a simultaneous meltdown. “No he didn’t,” Marie Harf lied. “I agree with Melissa, George Soros doesn’t need to be a part of this conversation.” Outvoted. That’s why America isn’t a Democracy, it’s a Republic. If we can keep it. Gingrich can read the writing on the wall. “Okay. So it’s verboten?” Blatant censorship. Since he was totally correct, they simply cut away after a “rather awkward silence on air.”
After the phone started ringing off the hook with complaints, the Fox host in charge of the ambush went back on the air to apologize. “Our guest, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who is beloved and needed to be allowed to speak with the openness and respect that this show is all about, was interrupted. Do we debate with fire here? Yes! But we must also give each other the space to express ourselves,” Harris Faulkner admits.
Nobody can deny because the facts are all public records, that Fox News is protecting “one of the biggest contributors to left-wing causes in the nation, if not the biggest.” The Catholic League calls the billionaire atheist “the nation’s most generous donor to anti-Catholic causes and organizations.” Born in Hungary, George Soros has “long been financially tied to both groups and politicians with the same social justice mission as the Black Lives Matter movement.” Soros “reportedly spent at least $48 million in 2019 alone.” He’s worth around 8 billion and loves to pour money into District Attorney races. He “supported the campaign of St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner, who released arrested rioters and looters back onto the streets citing lack of evidence.” She also “was also involved in the decision to charge a white St. Louis couple with a felony for standing outside their property holding a rifle while Black Lives Matter protesters stormed through a gate and antagonized them.”
