If you’ve been confused by Fox News’ coverage of leaked documents this year, you’re not alone.
Over the last three months, Eric Bolling, co-host of “The Five,” advocated suing outlets that publish leaked documents. At the same time, multiple Fox hosts have slammed the media for not covering hacks enough.
Sean Hannity applauded Julian Assange’s WikiLeaks for releasing hacked emails from Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta. Bill O’Reilly praised Donald Trump for calling on Russia to hack into Clinton’s “missing emails” from her days as secretary of state.
But the network sang a different tune in 2010, after WikiLeaks released thousands of classified U.S. military documents.
“I believe we can go after him for espionage,” Megyn Kelly asserted at the time.
“People would like to hear the president get mad about this,” Steve Doocy said.
“That’s what I’d like to see: a little drone hit Assange,” O’Reilly declared.
It’s all very consistent.
