Controlled Opposition: Fox News Cuts Off Newt Gingrich After He Points Out George Soros Role in Electing Prosecutors
This was perhaps the worst segment from Fox News in a long time. Newt Gingrich was speaking the truth about George Soros’ role in the election of far-Left district attorneys, who Soros will fund to undermine the American justice system. In fact, Fox News may have banned Joe Digenova for making a similar statement about Soros last year. Why is Soros being protected by Fox News?
Fox News Cuts Off Newt Gingrich After He Points Out George Soros Role in Electing Prosecutors
By Breitbart, September 18, 2020
Fox News cut off former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich on Wednesday after he brought up the role of billionaire left-wing financier George Soros in funding the election of left-wing prosecutors in local races over the past several years.
Gingrich argued that the rise in crime in many Democrat-governed cities was partly the result of the election of left-wing district attorneys who had received financial assistance from George Soros.
But commentators Melissa Francis and Marie Harf attempted to silence Gingrich.
This is one of the weirdest exchanges I’ve ever seen on TV. @newtgingrich correctly points out that George Soros threw an unprecedented amount of money into DA races all over the country to elect radicals and Fox News basically told him to shut up. WTF? pic.twitter.com/IxwcLG2gOH

“Look, the number one problem in almost all these cities is George Soros-elected, left-wing, anti-police, pro-criminal district attorneys who refuse to keep people locked up,” Gingrich said. “Just yesterday they put somebody back on the streets who’s wanted for two different murders in New York City.”
He continued: “You cannot solve this problem — and both [Kamala] Harris and [Joe] Biden have talked very proudly out what they call ‘progressive district attorneys’. Progressive district attorneys are anti-police, pro-criminal, and overwhelmingly elected with George Soros’s money.
“And they’re a major cause of the violence we’re seeing because they keep putting the violent criminals back on the street,” Gingrich said.
“I’m not sure we need to bring George Soros into this,” Francis replied.
“He paid for it,” Gingrich, who was obviously taken aback by the interruption. “I mean, why can’t we discuss that fact that millions of dollars….”.
“No he didn’t,” Harf interjected. “I agree with Melissa. George Soros doesn’t need to be a part of this conversation.”
“Okay, so it’s verboten,” Gingrich said, using the German word for “forbidden.”
