Fox News Host Forced to Apologize After Guest Gets Rudely Interrupted After Mentioning George Soros
Harris Faulkner of Fox News recently addressed an incident on her program “Outnumbered” in which Newt Gingrich was brought on to speak.
However, when Gingrich mentioned how George Soros is being the funding of these terrorists who are trying to destroy our country, he was rudely interrupted.
The former Speaker of the House was interrupted when he said Soros was funding “left-wing anti-police pro-criminal district attorneys who refused to keep people locked up”.
A day later, Hawkner addressed the highly publicized incident in a standalone segment, saying Gingrich is “beloved and needed to be allowed to speak with the openness and respect that this show is about”. She said her stance in sitting silently while the situation played out was “also not ideal”, adding that “we must also give each other the space to express ourselves”.
As the only original member of the six-year-old show, Faulkner said the show values different perspectives and does not censor people and that’s why it was “winning weekdays at noon”.

Nonetheless, Gingrich was quickly shut down when he argued that funding provided by Soros had helped fuel riots across different US cities in the aftermath of the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis. He blamed the election of progressive district attorneys with Soros’ money.
Co-host Melissa Francis interrupted him by stating that Soros should not be brought into the discussion. “He paid for it. I mean, why can’t we discuss the fact that millions of dollars,” Gingrich said, before he was interrupted.
After dead-end silence, Faulkner then quickly wrapped up the segment by moving on.
The exchange quickly went viral on social media with Fox News accused of hiding Soros’ influence. Twitter went abuzz with comments showing their disappointment at the show’s stance towards Gingrich.
Like I’ve said before, Fox News is becoming more and more liberal and intolerate of conservatives.
