Beto O’Rourke, the US Democratic presidential candidate, accused Donald Trump of dictating Fox News content.
O’Rourke criticized “close ties” between Donald Trump and the news network and said that White House has “free rein, almost” over what is being said on the news network.
It is not the first time when Democrats accuse Fox News of broadcasting “for Republicans.”
“You have members of the organization moving into White House, you have a White House with free rein, almost, over what is broadcast over one of the most widely watched cable networks in the country today,” said O’Rourke speaking at a campaign event in San Francisco.
He also commented on recently released Mueller’s report on Russian meddling in the 2016 elections, saying “I don’t know if collusion is a term of art in the law, but he [Trump] certainly invited their participation”.
