I miss the old Fox News wherein they value integrity than money. It’s just sad this news outlet is becoming Dems infested network.
Politico Playbook reported on Friday that Fox News has banned Rudy Giuliani and his son from appearing on its network
The news outlet reported that Giuliani, who served as a personal attorney to former President Trump, has reportedly been banned for close to three months and only learned of the move by the news network right before Sept. 11.
Aside from that his Son Andrew Giuliani, a New York gubernatorial candidate, has also been banned.
And former NYPD Commissioner Bernie Kerik, a close adviser to Giuliani, is rarely booked on Fox News, the outlet added.
Rudy Giuliani and Kerik were prominent New York City leaders on 9/11 as mayor and NYPD commissioner.
“They’re not doing us any favors,” a Trump aide told Politico.
Prior to a scheduled appearance on “Fox & Friends” on Sept. 11, “Fox & Friends Weekend” co-host Pete Hegseth apparently called the former New York City mayor the night before and apologized, telling him he had been canceled from their guest list.
A source close to the former New York City mayor told Playbook that Giuliani was upset by the decision because he had “done a big favor” for Fox Corp. founder and Chairman Rupert Murdoch.
“He was instrumental in getting Fox on Time Warner so it could be watched in New York City,” the source told Playbook.
The rejection on hosting the Giulianis “comes from the top,” sources told Politico.
Fox began distancing itself from Giuliani shortly after Trump left office and in the wake of Dominion Voting Systems’ lawsuit against the network. The suit cited Giuliani’s appearances and statements made on Fox in its $1.6 billion defamation case.
Newsmax was also sued by Dominion over its election coverage, but the network continues to have Giuliani, his son, and Kerik on as guests.
Rudy Giuliani learned of being bumped from Fox News on the eve of this 9/11 anniversary, with “Fox & Friends” host Pete Hegseth having to call to apologize for being cut from the show, according to the report.
Kerik was reportedly also un-booked from “Fox & Friends” on 9/11.
“I could not have been more disappointed with the Fox coverage on the 20th anniversary of Sept. 11,” Kerik said in a statement to Politico. “Then they chose to intentionally ignore Mayor Giuliani who was, and who, according to their own coverage for the last two decades, was America’s hero on the day and in the aftermath of the attack.
“Regardless of the reasoning, I think this was another demonstration of Fox’s cowering to the far left.”
A source close to Giuliani tells Newsmax that the former mayor and his circle view their banishment from Fox as part of the network’s strategy to reduce and restrict Trump’s influence in the Republican party.
