If you look up the word “hypocrite” in the dictionary, there should be a picture of Elizabeth Warren.
When President Donald Trump was calling out liberal media outlets like CNN, MSNBC, and the New York Times for inaccurate reporting, the Massachusetts Senator and rabid Trump-critic was front-and-center calling Trump an “enemy” of free press.
But now that Warren is running for president, it seems like she can’t take a little criticism from members of the media… and now she is hell bent on SILENCING her critics in the press.
According to multiple reports, Warren “snubbed” an invitation from Fox News to do a televised town hall… despite other Democratic candidates taking Fox News up on their offer.
Her reason? She HATES Fox News!
“Fox News is a hate-for-profit racket that gives a megaphone to racists and conspiracists—it’s designed to turn us against each other, risking life and death consequences, to provide cover for the corruption that’s rotting our government and hollowing out our middle class,” Warren tweeted. “Fox News is welcome to come to my events just like any other outlet. But a Fox News town hall adds money to the hate-for-profit machine. To which I say: hard pass.”
She also attacked several specific Fox News hosts, including Tucker Carlson, founder of The Daily Caller, and Laura Ingraham, in an Instagram post reiterating her “hate-for-profit” line.
I love town halls. I’ve done more than 70 since January, and I’m glad to have a television audience be a part of them. Fox News has invited me to do a town hall, but I’m turning them down—here’s why...

But no surprise, Warren’s decision to snub Fox News (and her reasons why) are being met with PRAISE by her pals in the liberal media.
“Her denunciation was greeted with glee by some liberals who consider the network the equivalent of state television,” reported The New York Times, offering no counter to the liberal characterization of Fox.
But according to commentary from The Daily Caller, their reception of Warren’s declaration of war on the network is markedly different from their reception of Trump’s war on The New York Times and CNN, which he has criticized for publishing “fake news” and referred to as “the enemy of the people.” These same outlets reacted with indignation to Trump’s criticisms, claiming he posed a threat to the free press and put the lives of journalists in danger.
Where in the world are these same critics as Warren lashes out at Fox News?!
