(BREAKING WIDE) — Fox News Chickens Out Of White House Presser Over Portland Footage “We Were Not Notified”.
Fox News abruptly pulled away from a White House Press conference being held by Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany over protest footage from Portland.
Harris Faulkner explains “Alright, we were not expecting that video and our management here at Fox News has decided we will pull away from that at this time.”
“I want to address a decision that was made by Fox News management a few minutes ago as we pulled away from the video that we were not told would air and how it would be edited with some things on screen that we wanted a heads up about,” Faulkner said. “That is part and full of what went on there [in Portland]. But I can’t go on without addressing that,” she continued.
“We’re approaching the top of the hour. The White House press briefing is something that is important for us to carry for you, and so a heads up at those times with videos like that in the middle of the day sometimes is helpful,” the anchor added.

FOX News later issued a statement: “FOX News was not provided with any advance warning that a video using profanity would air during this afternoon’s White House press briefing.” “Once it aired, FOX News made the decision it was inappropriate for a daytime audience and temporarily dropped out of coverage.”
The network returned to the briefing when McEnany began taking questions from reporters.
