Viewers of Fox News were incensed when their beloved “news” network gave more airtime to a rally in Georgia led by President Barack Obama than to one of President Donald Trump’s rallies in the same state.
Fox News actually hasn’t been showing many of the recent rallies Trump’s held as he’s traveled to various states trying to get his MAGA crew to vote for Republican candidates in the midterm elections (which are today! GO VOTE!). No reason has been given for why Fox hasn’t been airing the rallies, but, several weeks ago, while speaking to the press, Trump said he’d “have to see about” Fox carrying them live. I’m not sure if he ever did reach out to Fox, but whatever the case, they never did start airing the rallies in full.
And you can imagine how unhappy that’s made Fox viewers, who tend to be loyal Trump supporters. So straight to Twitter they went, hell-bent on yelling at the network about their decision to show Obama instead of Trump.
Fox News is in full blown Shepard Smith mode now.Some last min deep state money obviously. So if you wanna watch this awesome rally in Georgia turn in to ONE AMERICA NEWS the are making a name for themselves durring this corrupt media era.

Disgusting FOX channel coverage of GA rally… not even covering it. Gave a few minutes and cut in to say “they” gave equal coverage to both presidents. EXCUSE ME. Last time I looked we had only ONE PRESIDENT. PRESIDENT TRUMP. #Onlyheis my American President.

Why is FoxNews carrying Obama? And not Trump Rally? Obama is not President.

Can’t televise today’s @realDonaldTrump rally? What is going on in the news that is more important.? You televised Obama’s the other day. We won’t forget this BS and especially if we lose the House

I shut off @FoxNews
They are trying to hurt this President.
I listened to about 7 minutes of the Obama rally today, and about 2 minutes of the Trump rally in Georgia.
You people are going to suffer. Not Trump or his supporters. Mark my words.
Say good bye to your ratings.

How biased #amagenda under this new CEO Whittaker, they open with old film of Obama and his tiny crowd, at the very same time President Trump is addressing a massive rally, but you won’t see this on Fox now they have gone labor/Greens with this new CEO, well we have news for him!

Yay, @cspan is covering President @realDonaldTrump‘s rally live!!! Interesting @FoxNews is trying hard to suppress ALL @realDonaldTrump‘s rallies, leading up to the midterms! They showed ALL his rallies in 2016!!

Want to watch a Trump Rally without any interruptions?! ok then, change your TV channel from Fox News to C-SPAN from now on when it comes to Trump Rallies in full turn to C-SPAN!!

I’m so disappointed that Fox News didn’t cover the Trump rally in Macon. I’ve tried to find where to watch it but to no avail. It seems that @FoxNews doesn’t care for the election results. Very sad.

Unreal @JonScottFNC Shows five minutes of @realDonaldTrump at his #MaconGA rally and says now we gave equal opportunity to Obama and Trump and are returning to our programming. So I say bye again @FoxNews I am now returning to @RSBNetwork to watch the Trump rally.
