Rudy Giuliani has reportedly been banned from Fox News. he learned of the ban the night before Sept. 11, when his scheduled appearance on “Fox & Friends” was cut and host Pete Hegseth called to apologize, reported Politico.
Rudy Giuliani has been banned from Fox News for almost three months. Politico’s sources said the ban comes from the top and includes Giuliani’s son, Andrew, who has not appeared on Fox News since launching his New York gubernatorial campaign in May. rival GOP candidate Rep. Lee Zeldin has made frequent appearances on the network.
Dominion Voting Systems has sued Fox News for allowing guests like Giuliani to spread false claims about the 2020 election. In a 2018 FBI deposition that became public last month, Giuliani admitted he pushed lies about Hillary Clinton on Fox News before the 2016 election.
“Rudy is really hurt because he did a big favor for Rupert [Murdoch],” a source close to Giuliani told politico. “He was instrumental in getting Fox on Time Warner so it could be watched in New York City.”
Other senior aides to Trump have also been banned by Fox News.
“They’re not doing us any favors,” said one ex-Trump aide.
