Fox News Contributor Newt Gingrich: ‘Fox is Relatively Obedient’ to Trump

During Newt Gingrich‘s appearance today on The View, the former House Speaker more or less conceded that Fox News marches to the beat of President Trump‘s drum.

As part of an appearance to promote his newest book, the former House Speaker (and current Fox News contributor) was challenged by the ladies about Trump’s tendency to attack the media while lying on a regular basis. Gingrich defended the president by recycling Kellyanne Conway‘s line about “alternative facts,” while saying that POTUS doesn’t have to be “obedient” to the press just because of First Amendment freedoms.

“Fox is obedient to him though,” Joy Behar said.

“Fox is relatively obedient,” Gingrich responded — laughing after Behar called the network “state-run.”

Interesting insight, Mr. Speaker.
