As much as the political left in America likes to slam Fox News are being entirely right wing, that has never actually been the case. Actually Fox News historically has been one of the more balanced news networks. That was then; this is now. As the control of the network changes, it has lost some of its willingness to report thoroughly on some matters.
The Conservative Treehouse posted an article yesterday about some creative editing done by Fox News.
The article reports:
President Trump appeared on Fox News for an interview with Dan Bongino last night. Unfortunately, when the interview segment was posted to the Fox News channel, some specific words from President Trump were deleted from the interview segment.
Ironically the name of Dan Bongino’s show is “unfiltered.” Alas when President Trump’s spokesperson, Liz Harrington, reviewed the tape she discovered the censorship and showed on Twitter [SEE HERE] In the transcript below the emboldened section was removed:
President Trump said: …“it’s a disgrace what’s happening, and I don’t think the country is going to stand for it much longer; they’re disgusted. You have a fake election; you have an election with voter abuse and voter fraud, like nobody has ever seen before. And based on that, and based on what happened, they are destroying our country. Whether it’s at the border. Whether it’s on crime. I can say in plenty of instances including military, you look at the leaders of military, the woke leaders of military, we have to focus on our great military for what it’s supposed to be – to protect us against very powerful countries like Russia, and China, and others who don’t exactly love us.”
The edit, called a “jump edit” takes place at 09:03 of the presented video below:
The article concludes:
This is just as bad as Big Tech. They are putting President Trump’s honest statement, and the concerns of tens of millions of Americans, down the Memory Hole.
I guess it’s FILTERED after all, @dbongino.

It is sad that news organizations are editing things to avoid letting Americans know the truth. I guess it’s nothing new, but it is definitely bad for our republic.
