Fox stepped way out of line…
President Donald Trump escalated his assaults on Fox News Wednesday evening in a tweet storm aimed at several of the network’s liberal personalities.
“Just watched Fox News heavily promoting the Democrats through their DNC Communications Director, spewing out whatever she wanted with zero pushback by anchor [Sandra Smith],” Trump tweeted.
Trump also assaulted conservative journalist Juan Williams and TV presenter Shepard Smith, suggesting conservatives should begin “looking for a new fresh news outlet.”
Just watched @FoxNews heavily promoting the Democrats through their DNC Communications Director, spewing out whatever she wanted with zero pushback by anchor, @SandraSmithFox. Terrible considering that Fox couldn’t even land a debate, the Dems give them NOTHING! @CNN & @MSNBC….

Wednesday’s tweets are the recent sign of dissatisfaction with Fox News from the president.
Trump has constantly criticized Fox for recruiting and continuing to broadcast Williams and Smith and former DNC chairwoman, Donna Brazile. Trump also mocked Fox News presenters like Smith and Bret Baier for their coverage of his administration.
Trump also attacked the media channel last month after a Fox News poll in a hypothetical general election match found the president trailing former vice president Joe Biden by 10 points.
““[Fox News] is at it again. So different from what they used to be during the 2016 Primaries, [and] before — Proud Warriors!” Trump tweeted at the time. Now new Fox Polls, which have always been terrible to me (they had me losing BIG to Crooked Hillary), have me down to Sleepy Joe.”
