RINOElizabeth Cheney attempted to smear several Fox News members by revealing private texts sent from the likes of Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, and others within the organization to Mark Meadows.
In the texts, Hannity and the others openly called for President Donald Trump to disavow the events of January 6th.
Somehow Cheney has it in her mind that this made the Fox News hosts look bad, despite the fact that they said the exact same thing on-air that they did in the text messages.
Now Hannity, Ingraham, and Tucker Carlson are putting Cheney on blast.
Hannity called Cheney’s actions a “weak attempt” to slander him, while Ingraham played exerpts from her show from the night of January 6th proving that she condemned the alleged January 6th “insurrection.”
Carlson then pointed out that Cheney only undercut her own narrative that somehow Fox News didn’t criticize what occcurred on that day.
Fox News has more on Hannity's response to Cheney:
Sean Hannity addressed what he called Rep. Liz Cheney's "weak attempt to smear" him after the Republican lawmaker publicized a text message showing the Fox News host encouraging former President Trump to take stronger action to quell the Capitol riot on Jan. 6th.
"Last night, in a weak attempt to smear yours truly, and presumably, President Trump, Congresswoman Cheney presented one of my text messages from January 6th to Mark Meadows," Hannity told viewers in his opening monologue on Tuesday.
"I said to Mark Meadows the exact same thing I was saying live on the radio at the time and on TV that night, on January 6th and well beyond January 6th," he continued.
"I’m an honest, straightforward person. I say the same thing in private that I say to all of you."
Cheney reveals text messages from Fox News hosts
Laura Ingraham also had plenty to say about Cheney's actions on the "Ingraham Angle."
The New York Post has more from Ingraham:
After Hannity’s show went off the air, Ingraham said Cheney’s public release of the messages sent “left-wing media hacks into spin and defame mode.”
“Of course, the regime media was somehow trying to twist this message to try to tar me as a liar [and] hypocrite, who privately sounded the alarm on Jan. 6, but publicly downplayed it,” said the host of “The Ingraham Angle.”
“Had they bothered to actually watch what I said the night of Jan. 6 or read any of my public tweets from the afternoon of Jan. 6, they couldn’t have denied the truth,” she said.
Ingraham then played an excerpt of her show that aired the night of Jan. 6.
“The Capitol was under siege by people who can only be described as antithetical to the MAGA movement,” she said at the time. “Now they were likely not all Trump supporters, and there were some reports that Antifa sympathizers may have been sprinkled throughout the crowd.”
Fox News Host Tucker Carlson also responded to Cheney's pathetic attempt to criticize the organization by revealing the private text messages.
Tucker also correctly pointed out that the texts only served to undercut Cheney's entire narrative.
