FOX news failed to stand up to Trump: Former news editor

A former Fox News editor said the network rolled over for former President Donald Trump and his allies when it amplified the “big lie” that the 2020 election was stolen.

“Fox had the opportunity to use its position to tell the truth for the good of the country and failed to use the power and resources that it had to stand up to Donald Trump,” Chris Stirewalt, Fox News’ former politics editor, said in a recent documentary.

The documentary by Australia’s “Four Corners” news show investigates the role Fox News played in promoting Trump’s lie that the 2020 presidential election was stolen from him after he lost to Joe Biden.

Part one of the investigation, which aired last week, analyzes the role media mogul Rupert Murdoch played in both Fox’s and Trump’s early successes. The second part, which aired Monday, outlines what happens when ratings outweigh the truth.
