Republicans were angry at Fox News when they shut down former House Speaker and Republican pundit Newt Gingrich when he noted on-air how Democrat mega-donor George Soros had funded a number of controversial candidates for prosecutors in riot-torn cities. But they were even more furious after Fox News host Harris Faulkner of the news segment, issued an apology following the debacle where she boasted about TV ratings. 

"So we had a little incident on the show yesterday that was not smooth, and while I was leading that segment we had an eruption and I sat silently while all of that played out. Also, not ideal. Our guest, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who is beloved, needed to be allowed to speak with the openness and the respect that the show is all about was interrupted. Do we debate with fire here? Yes. But we must also give each other the space to express ourselves. As the only original member of the six-year-old amazing daytime ride known as 'Outnumbered,' I especially want to rock n’ roll with every voice and perspective at the table. We don’t censor on this show. And that’s why we’re winning weekdays at noon," Faulkner was heard saying on Thursday, Septmeber 17. 



 

It was clear that none of the conservatives brought into the apology as they demanded Faulker to actually admit her mistake to Gingrich. "That's not an apology, it's just a prideful statement of what happened, and a claim that you don't do what you actually did, still waiting for an actual apology" one said, while another wote, "@HARRISFAULKNER This is cover, not a real apology or reason. What happened was undeniably producers giving direction to two different anchors to redirect the guest and close the discussion. There is no excuse for that." A third commented, "This is neither an apology nor an explanation for why Newt Gingrich was insulted on air by Marie Harf and prevented from talking about George Soros while everyone just watched in silence. In fact, it makes the whole incident ever more so bizarre."

A fourth opined, "Your apology is not enough. How dare you disrespect a statesman like Mr Newt. I have always been a fan but your true colors are out. You lost my respect and I am verbal about people with no real character. Shame!" A fifth said, "Have him back on, turn off everyone's mic when it's his turn and give him a minute to make his point. Then they can respond...which to my knowledge they have not. You were silent so idk what was up with you but they were def censoring Gingrich."



 



 



 



 

We previously reported that Gingrich was telling the hosts of Fox News' ‘Outnumbered’ on Wednesday, "The number one problem in almost all the cities is George Soros-elected, left-wing, anti-police, pro-criminal district attorneys who refuse to keep people locked up. Both [Kamala] Harris and [Joe] Biden have talked very proudly about what they call progressive district attorneys. Progressive district attorneys are anti-police, pro-criminal, and overwhelmingly elected with George Soros’ money. They are a major cause of the violence we are seeing because they keep putting the violent criminals back on the street when he was cut off by Fox Business anchor Melissa Francis.

“I’m not sure we need to bring George Soros into this," she said, before fellow panelist Marie Harf agreed and said, “George Soros doesn’t need to be part of this conversation.” Harf was a spokeswoman for the CIA and the State Department in the Obama era. “Okay, so it’s verboten?” Gingrich said in response, followed by a long moment of awkward silence. Host Harris Faulkner then interjected by saying, “Okay, we’re going to move on.”
