California Governor Gavin Newsom (D) is attacking Fox News prime-time hosts for their “ruthless” approach to media.

The Democrat governor, who has been floated as a possible 2024 contender, remarked over the weekend that Democrats are getting “crushed” by Fox News hosts. Newsom cited his Father-in-law as an example of someone for whom he has great respect, but at the same time, is often confused about his conservative narratives, which he blamed Fox News prime-time hosts for. 

According to Mediaite, a portion of Newsom’s remarks aired Monday morning on CNN’s New Day for discussion.

“These guys are ruthless on the other side. Ruthless on the other side,” Newsom reiterated. “That prime time line up by Fox, they are ruthless. They dominate the most important thing in American politics today, and that’s the narrative. Facts become secondary to narrative. They dominate with illusion. We are getting crushed.”

Panelists Margaret Hoover and John Avlon didn’t refute Newsom’s allegation that hosts for the top-rated cable news program are consistently lying.

Coming out of the clip, Erica Hill noted, “when it comes to messaging in terms of getting crushed, this is something that has been an Achilles heel for Democrats in terms of having a united message across the party.” This may be a shock to any conservative viewer who watched years of Russian interference narratives that, for reasons good and bad, never amounted to anything other than breathless media analysis.

Hoover also noted a media narrative favorable to Democrats seemed a pretty well-oiled machine during past Democrat-led administrations.

“I don’t think necessarily Democrats suffer from lack of a narrative,” Hoover continued. “They own the presidency right now and have control of the Senate. I worry about what he’s pointing to,” which she summarized as getting away from the Michelle Obama rhetorical ethos of “when they go low, we go high.” She ultimately landed on the real issue as she saw it, which was the impact Donald Trump has on political discourse.

“[Newsom] is right in saying Democrats want a fighter right now. He has a good point about the unified narrative of Republicans that tends to put Democrats on defense because they are saying ‘Gosh, look at all those lies.”


  1. So why the leftist networks fail? Lack of viewers. I wonder why. Is it because folks caught on to being lied to over and over? Ratings speak for themselves.

  2. Seems laughable from left who never report the truth – they justcan’t handle the truth! Even when it’s right in front of them. Russian collusion was defunct how long ago? But they can’t accept it that again they were wrong. Hunter biden caught over and over – but they can’t accept. Border disaster but again deny deny deny! Bunch of spoiled brats that have to have their way or it’s a temper tantrum. They’ve lied so much about everything they don’t even know what the truth is! Hypocriticsal liars!

  3. Newsom must live with his head in the sand. No, wait. That would muss up his pomade hairdo. So I should say he is living in a fantasy world to complain about FOX News evening hosts. Has he bothered to watch CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, or NBC? The anchors on their newscasts or, should I say, their Democratic party talking points have for the past six years vilified President Trump in about every way possible. Now that the shoe is on the other foot old gel-hair is feeling the pain and, as usual, screeching like a stuck pig. If he does decide to make a run for the presidency I can assure you he ain’t seen nothing yet.

  4. Gruesom and the other leftists want any media that doesn’t strictly follow their leftist ideas to be silenced. Gruesom is the worst governor California ever had.

  5. Newsome is an idiot and fool just his disgusting Aunt, Nancy Pelosi, two incompetent Political HACKS. Newsome thinks he is hot sh-t, the bottom line he is incompetent, ignorant, inept, and just an egotistical idiot. He needs to get a job that he can handle, we need some trash collectors!
