CNN’s Don Lemon lied on the air last night. He called FOX News “state run TV” and claimed they weren’t covering the story of Hope Hicks leaving the White House. But FOX News did cover the story extensively.
Here’s a partial transcript of Lemon’s show in CNN via Real Clear Politics:
“I was sitting in my office and was watching all the news channels, right — Trump TV or state-run TV, they’re not even reporting this,” Lemon said Wednesday night. “So, Trump supporters, they don’t even know about these stories, it doesn’t even register, that’s the amazing thing. We cover all of these things every day. The White House imploding behind him, and he’s standing there going, ‘nothing to see here.”
“His supporters probably don’t even realize the extent of it,” Lemon lamented.

John Roberts of FOX News called out Lemon on Twitter:
WE REPORTED IT MULTIPLE TIMES. I REPORTED IT ON NEIL CAVUTO'S SHOW – AND ON THE FIVE. AND AGAIN AT THE TOP OF THE 6PM SHOW. AND WE DID IT AT THE TOP OF THE 7PM SHOW. CLEARLY SOMEONE IS NOT WATCHING FOX, BUT SAYING THEY ARE. https://t.co/Jdci8XRezL

Here’s Lemon’s lame response:
FYI.. Last night, in an attempt to make a broader point about Fox News prime time I misspoke. I should have been more specific.

CNN is so pathetic.
