FOX News announced this week they will not be airing the sham January 6 hearings this Thursday night.
Instead, FOX News will air their top-rated show, Tucker Carlson Tonight.
It is widely known that Liz Cheney’s Jan. 6 Committee will not discuss Ray Epps, FBI operatives, or the brutal killings of Ashli Babbitt or Rosanne Boyland.
This sent CNN’s Brian Stelter into meltdown mode. How dare they not show the lies and smears and omissions of the January 6 Committee!
Fox News is not airing the hearing of the January 6 committee live this Thursday as it falls during the network’s highly-watched primetime line up and will instead be airing the hearing live on Fox Business.
CNN host Brian Stelter criticized the decision to air Tucker Carlson because his show “promotes conspiracy theories about the riot, calls the committee ‘illegitimate,’ and ridicules the committee members.”
Fox's top news anchors will be moved over to the Fox Business Network, and they will cover the hearing there. At 8pm ET on an ordinary night, Fox News has more than 3 million viewers, while Fox Business has under 100,000. That pretty much says it all about Fox's priorities.

Here's the language from Fox's press release: "Fox News Channel's primetime programs will cover the hearings as news warrants." At 11pm ET, "Gutfeld" will be preempted, and Shannon Bream "will anchor a two-hour live special," joined by Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum.
