It’s been more than 20 years now, and I think it’s safe to say we all agree: Fox News has an agenda.
When reporters and anchors for the right-wing network approach a story, they do so with the assumption that they’ll be interviewing like-minded folks. You know, the people Fox News programming is intended for. So what do they do when they come across an interview that doesn’t go as planned?
That’s exactly what happened to Griff Jenkins when he went to the Tastee Diner in Bethesda, Maryland. Jenkins was on hand to ask “regular” people what they thought of the firing of FBI Director James Comey. The Fox News hosts in the studio chuckled about how Comey is now “looking for work” as they tossed to Griff live in Bethesda. But when he sat down with Pat Flaherty, a 25-year employee of the Veterans’ Administration, he got more than the folksy answer he was expecting. Asking Pat what he thought of the current situation in America, Flaherty laid it down.
I think people are starting to care now and realize we’ve got some pretty weak promises made by somebody who doesn’t understand we’re not in the golf business. We’re not building buildings. He’s working for me now.
“Not to be too Machiavellian about it”
Maybe Griff was thrown off by not getting a “Hail Trump” type of response, but he soldiered on. Pressing the elderly diner on the Comey firing, Pat once again left Jenkins’ jaw on the floor.
Why does it take such a long time for these guys to arrive at this conclusion? Is it because we’re getting too tight in finding out too much information linked to Putin?
That was just about enough for the no-longer-smiling Griff Jenkins. “Well, we’re tight on time,” he said, moving quickly to a patron across the aisle.
