The Fox News turn is more obvious every day. In this case, it was demonstrated by Neil Cavuto while Fox News was carrying Kayleigh McEnany’s presser on the Trump campaign’s legal arguments and actions on vote fraud and the election results.
McEnany rightly stated that Democrats are doing everything in their power to prevent accountability and transparency and a legal and fair accounting of the votes. Cavuto didn’t like it and he got his digs in as he pulled the feed.
“There is only one party in America trying to keep observers out of the count room, that party my friends is the Democrat party. You don’t take these positions because you want an honest election. You don’t oppose an audit of the vote because you want an accurate count. You don’t oppose our effort at sunlight at transparency because you have nothing to hide. You take these positions because you are a welcoming fraud and you are welcoming illegal voting,” said McEnany.
As she continued talking it apparently sunk in for Cavuto that she’d called out the Democrats, and apparently he wasn’t about to have it. Watch:

“Whoa, whoa, whoa, I just think we have to be very clear that she’s charging the other side is welcoming fraud and welcoming illegal voting, unless she has more details to back that up, I can’t in good countenance continue showing you this,” he said.
Can’t continue showing you this, he says. CAN’T CONTINUE SHOWING YOU THIS? Do we have to explain how bad this is?
“I want to make sure that, maybe they do have something to back that up, but that’s an explosive charge to make. That the other side is effectively rigging and cheating,” he continued moralizing. “If she does bring proof of that, of course we’ll take you back.”
Oh how benevolent of you.
