Fox News anchor Harris Faulkner accused Democratic Washington Rep. Denny Heck of “dancing” around her questions during a Friday interview.
Faulkner grilled Heck on the findings of Thursday’s inspector general report, and Heck asserted that there is “something for everybody” in the report before asking to move on to another topic.
“I know you want to move on,” Faulkner replied, as Heck tried to pivot to the president’s nomination of Kimberly Reed to head the Export-Import Bank.
“Let me step in because I want to stay on topic. I see the swing that you’re doing and I love dancing myself but we are not going to dance right now,” Faulkner shot back. “We’re going to go back to the Fox top story and the top story all over the place right now.”
“You say this is the top story,” Heck said, before accusing Fox News of not covering an ex-Trump campaign manager being sent to jail. “Actually, if you turn the channel to a couple of others, you’ll be seeing the top story about Paul Manafort being sent to jail.”
“We started with that, you didn’t catch the top of our show,” Faulkner replied with a sigh.
