Trump Ups the Ante in Fox News Brawl
Earlier today, President Trump came out with his fiercest criticism yet of his longtime favorite cable news network: Fox News.

In a Twitter salvo, the president teed off at the conservative channel. First, saying that Fox has become too hospitable to Democrats, then adding that his supporters should start looking for a replacement news outlet. (The Hill)

Trump lashed out in a trio of tweets after a spokeswoman for the Democratic National Committee (DNC) appeared on "America's Newsroom." The president cited her interview; the employment of former DNC Chairwoman Donna Brazile; Juan Williams, who is also a columnist for The Hill; and anchor Shepard Smith to claim the network is biased against him.


Fox News did not immediately respond to a request for comment, but some of its news personalities quickly pushed back against Trump.


The president has favored Fox News over other outlets for much of his presidency, regularly tweeting out quotes from network personalities and sitting for interviews with Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Harris Faulkner, Chris Wallace, Maria Bartiromo and the hosts of "Fox & Friends.
