Nicolle Wallace: How is Fox News ‘Different From State-Run Media?’ (Mediaite)

During Thursday’s Deadline: White House, host Nicolle Wallace and her panel discussed Fox News, largely in less-than-glowing terms because of their many personalities who are sympathetic to President Donald Trump.

Matt Schlapp, the American Conservative Union Chairman and a cable news regular, defended the network, claiming that more than one point of view could be found there.

“This rhetoric is way over the top,” Schlapp said. “Fox News has different types of shows. There’s plenty of Republicans on Fox News who are Never Trumpers. It’s more diverse than you’re characterizing.”
