Fox Says It Canceled Trump Appearance Before ‘Boycott’ Tweet

“At 11:45am today, we canceled Donald Trump’s scheduled appearance on ‘The O’Reilly Factor’ on Thursday, which resulted in Mr. Trump’s subsequent tweet about his ‘boycott’ of Fox News,” a Fox News spokesperson says in a statement.

  • “The press predictably jumped to cover his tweet, creating yet another distraction from any real issues that Mr. Trump might be questioned about. When coverage doesn’t go his way, he engages in personal attacks on our anchors and hosts, which has grown stale and tiresome. He doesn’t seem to grasp that candidates telling journalists what to ask is not how the media works in this country”
  • Earlier: Trump said in Twitter post network “has been treating me very unfairly & I have therefore decided that I won’t be doing any more Fox shows for the foreseeable future”
