Former military veteran and current host of Fox & Friends Weekend, Pete Hegseth, shared his thoughts about his journey to host a national television show, the problem with higher education, and how social media prevents independent thinking, in a recent conversation with Bobby Burack of Outkick.

Hegseth wrote a book called Modern Warriors which is due to be released on Tuesday. “I think readers across the spectrum will enjoy it as it reminds them why America is such a special country,” Hegseth said. “I’m not really asking questions – I’m facilitating the discussion. What’s cool about these guys is that they get really comfortable.”  

Hegseth, once a member of the Army National Guard, was in the running to head the United States Department of Veteran Affairs before he became engulfed in an adultery controversy. He explains that his military experience was a catalyst for his television career.  

“One day they asked, hey have you thought about asking questions instead of answering them?” Shortly after that conversation, the network gave him a chance to host Fox and Friends. “I hadn’t done professional television in that role before. But if you’ve been shot at, reading a teleprompter and asking a couple of questions is not the most stressful thing you’ve ever done in your life.”  

Asked about his Ivy League education, Hegseth said that “he’s sending his degree back to Harvard and telling them that they can keep it. The challenge is getting these parents to wake up and stop sending their kids back to these schools.”

Fox News contributor Britt McHenry hasn’t appeared in months on the network and states that she remains on the sidelines due to suing her former co-host and Fox News during an interview with The Daily Beast.

A U.S. district judge denied Fox News contributor Tyrus’ request to dismiss McHenry’s lawsuit, alleging that her former Fox Nation co-host repeatedly harassed her via lewd, inappropriate text messages.

Despite the ongoing lawsuit, the former professional wrestler has appeared on Fox’s airwaves at least ten times. Furthermore, he’s the co-host of the highly-rated late-afternoon talk show The Five.

“All I want to do is work,” McHenry told The Daily Beast. “But when you flip on the TV and see your harasser once again given on-air promotions, it sends a clear message that solving this appropriately on Fox News’ end isn’t in the cards.” According to the conservative media outlet, they’re not benching McHenry. The network renewed her contract for two more years and added that she could pitch herself to appear on Fox News or Fox Business Network shows like any other contributor.

Cable News Coverage of Biden Inauguration Ran the Gambit

Coverage of President Joe Biden’s big day came with little to no scrutiny on the left-leaning networks.

Published

The tone of cable news coverage during Inauguration Day depended entirely on who you voted for. Anchors at CNN and MSNBC offered dismal and sarcastic opinions about President Trump’s four-year term while reporters at Fox News, One America News Network (OANN) and Newsmax offered a less critical analysis of the 45th President.

OANN, the nation’s most friendly Trump network, covered the president’s final White House goodbye with pre-taped video packages and in-depth analysis. The network also produced a 48-minute video for its website called “Trump – Legacy of a Patriot.”

Fox News Described Trump as a hard-working man while host Dana Perino repeatedly and delicately referred to him as a “disruptor.” Anchor Martha MacCallum claimed Trump has “worked hard in the past 48 hours to finish this on a more gracious note.”

CNN sent reporter Jim Acosta to cover Trump’s departure at Joint Base Andrews. Acosta, who worked in the White House for the last four years and had several run-ins with Trump, called him an “autocrat” as his plane was headed towards Florida.

CNN’s Wolf Blitzer called the turn-out for Trump’s farewell “pathetic” piggybacking off of the seeming disgust that Acosta was reporting with.

“He looks small,” CNN anchor Dana Bash opined as the defeated 45th president and his unpopular first lady, Melania, made their way across the South Lawn to Marine One. “He just looks like a small man.”

Coverage of President Joe Biden’s big day came with little to no scrutiny on the left-leaning networks. CNN and MSNBC seemed to ignore the fact that Biden signed 17 executive orders erasing key aspects of Donald Trump’s presidency.

The Five co-host Greg Gutfield ripped the mainstream media for practically “drooling” with compliments for President Joe Biden while almost “spitting” on Donald Trump during Inauguration Day coverage.

Gutfield demonstrated his points with several soundbites from various networks including CNN and MSNBC who seemed to rejoice in Trump’s plane departing Joint Base Andrews. 

“A welcomed sight for many Americans,” proclaimed MSNBC. “He’s almost leaving town like an autocrat,” said CNN’s Jim Acosta.

Gutfield said he was amazed by the “emotional intensity of the [media’s] conformity” He also called the media “predictable” and compared them to “children.”

Meanwhile, Trump said goodbye to a small crowd at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland where he touted his administration’s accomplishments and wished the new administration “great luck and success.”

“I hope they don’t raise taxes, but if they do I told you so,” said Trump.

Gutfield claimed that the media will handle Joe Biden’s administration with kid gloves, avoiding controversy at all costs. 

“Don’t worry there will be no anonymous sources feeding Wolf Blitzer stories of Joe Biden meltdowns,” proclaimed Gutfield. “What will the media do after all of their bitter, emotional farewells?”
