Three-time election loser and loud-mouth Trumper Dan Bongino was banned from Fox News @ Night over his “unglued” behavior yet he was just hired as a contributor to the network. It’s a sad reminder of just how far the network has sunk
Fox News has always acted as a propaganda outlet for the Republican Party, camouflaged with some legitimate news operations, as this blog has demonstrated since its 2004 inception. But while some at the network have clearly recognized and avoided becoming pawns in the dangerous shenanigans of the Trump administration, the Sean Hannity brigade of Trump sycophants are clearly in the driver’s seat. Not only was the Trump-worshiping, Hannity-show regular Sebastian Gorka hired as a “national security strategist” despite his ties to the Nazi Party, his on-air call (without pushback from Hannity) for Hillary Clinton to be executed and dubious national security credentials, but Gorka credited Hannity for the contract.
Now Bongino is on the payroll. Also a regular on the Hannity show (as well as Fox & Friends and Ingraham Angle) , Bongino is a thrice-failed Congressional candidate whose NRATV show was recently dropped after less than a year. Furthermore, he was reportedly banned from the Fox News @ Night show after he “became unglued,” according to a Daily Beast source. “He’s not someone who would typically be on the news shows,” that source added. It's worth noting that Gorka is also unwelcome on Fox's news shows.
So why would Fox News hire Bongino when it seems nobody else wants to? The Daily Beast probably has the answer: Bongino’s a loud-mouthed Trump supporter who says his life is now “all about owning the libs.” More to the point, he’s Trump World’s kind of guy. Here’s how Media Matters described Bongino's now-defunct NRATV show:
The theme of Bongino’s show We Stand quickly became the Trump-Russia investigation. In an August report, Media Matters chronicled at length the bizarre and nonsensical ways Bongino used his show to try to absolve Trump and his administration from any wrongdoing and to call for an end to the investigation. (Bongino also talked about the Trump-Russia investigation during his frequent appearances on Fox News.) One typical example of Bongino’s rants is when he said on NRATV, “Fire Bob Mueller; fire this guy now. This is a disgrace. We investigate crimes -- we don’t investigate people.”
Oh, and did I mention he’s also Infowars’ kind of guy?
So, ladies and gentlemen, take a look at what Fox News thinks is the kind of commentary worth paying for below, where Bongino rants about “owning the libs,” from the October 4, 2018 NRATV’s We Stand, via Media Matters.
