If a picture is worth a thousand words, two screen grabs from this morning's Fox & Friends tells you that the Curvy Couch Cheerleading Squad was very worried about today's revelations from FBI Director James Comey during a House Intelligence Committee hearing on Russia's interference in our election and Donald Trump's claim to have been wiretapped by President Obama.
@BadFoxGraphics caught this sycophantic banner, along with a typo:
Not long after, Bad Fox Graphics caught Trump echoing Fox spin:
James Clapper and others stated that there is no evidence Potus colluded with Russia. This story is FAKE NEWS and everyone knows it!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 20, 2017
CNN's Brian Stelter caught Fox & Friends suggesting that the whole thing is a big nothingburger. Because a U.S. president's possible collusion with Russia and/or lying about being illegally wiretapped by a former president is no biggie compared to the "important" news of a tasteless, retracted joke by Full Frontal with Samantha Bee or an obscure right-wing blogger getting escorted out of an ACLU meeting.
And then there is Fox [Trump] Business Network. The Daily Beast's Andrew Kirell caught this whine about a "double standard" from Neil Cavuto today that was deemed more important than the actual hearing:

—CNN: FBI confirms Russia probe
—Fox News: Dems vs. Gorsuch
—Fox Business: LIBTARD DOUBLE STANDARD!! pic.twitter.com/b9v67uxHLz

But why wonder? GOPTV™ has proven covering Trump there is no level of hypocrisy they are unwilling to humiliate themselves with to prop up their Chosen One.
The #ComeyHearing is stunning. No doubt Fox’s panties are all in knots. But Fox saw this coming as Newshounds is pointing out here. You can’t keep a good propagandist down. I’ve already seen many in the #FoxNews hashtag thread saying nobody cares about Russia. So Fox can quickly ignore it and nobody they care about will notice.
