Fox News Host Slammed For ‘spreading Lies And Conspiracy Theories’ On His Own Show


On Tuesday, Fox News personality Pete Hegseth's interview with Texas state Rep. James Talarico (D) went awry when Talarico called the conservative host out on the air for "spewing lies and conspiracy theories."

During a discussion about the Democratic state legislators (including himself) who left Texas on Monday to thwart GOP efforts to pass new laws restricting voting, Talarico told Hegseth that the reason so many people believe ex-President Donald Trump's election lie is "because folks like you get on television every night and repeat the lie over and over again."

“You've made a lot of money personally, and you've enriched a lot of corporations with advertising by coming on here and spewing lies and conspiracy theories to people who trust you,” Talarico continued as Hegseth tried to speak over him repeatedly.

“And so, what I'm asking you to do right now is to tell your voters that Donald Trump lost the election in 2020; can you admit that? Did you catch what I just said? Did you hear what I asked?” Talarico inquired.

“Did Donald Trump lose the election in 2020?” he asked.

“I think I'm answering the questions,” Hegseth replied, “but I don't feel obligated to answer anything.”

“Do you find this a difficult question?” Talarico inquired.

“No,” Hegseth said before shifting his focus to Talarico's decision to leave Texas.

Here's a video of the exchange starting at 11:20:
