Fox News correspondent John Robertsrailed against Don Lemon on Thursday, after the CNN anchor claimed the rival network was not covering the bombshell resignation of White House communications director Hope Hicks.“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. “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 added.
As it turns out Roberts — a veteran journalist serving as Fox News’ White House correspondent — covered the resignation extensively on the network, and took to Twitter to respond to Lemon’s comments.
“WE REPORTED IT MULTIPLE TIMES,” Roberts tweeted in all-caps, to really hammer the point home. “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.”
