There has been a major shot across President Donald Trump's bow and it came, believe it or not, from Fox News. Specifically, it came from Fox reporter and commentator Neil Cavuto, in response to a Trump tweet which stated, among other things, "Fox isn't working for us anymore." Whoa! Next thing you know, Putin will turn over his kompromat on Trump to the CIA!
Seriously, though, the love affair between Fox and 45 has been more than a little frayed in recent days, and apparently, that latest tweet from the twit sufficiently irked Cavuto that he decided to return fire:
Mr. President, we don’t work for you. I don’t work for you. My job is to cover you, not fawn over you or rip you. Just report on you.
-- Nick Cavuto, Fox News
Extraordinary words from a representative of an organization which, for the large part, HAS fawned over the president and rarely if ever ripped him. Whether this is a marker for a change in attitude at Fox, perhaps signaling a genuine attempt at "fair and balanced" reporting (ignoring for the moment the likes of Fox and Friends, Laura Ingraham and Sean Hannity), it may be we are looking at Another CHINK In The Wall that surrounds the special snowflake that currently resides at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
For those who are interested, here is a portion of Cavuto's response:
