Now that Fox is on the outs with Donald Trump, the “fair and balanced” network seems to be looking at Senator Marco Rubio as their rebound love for president.
Last night, Fox hosts repeatedly gushed over Rubio’s “surprise” third-place finish. Even though, as Media Matters pointed out, polls consistently showed him in that position. You might have thought he won and not Ted Cruz.
I put together a mash up video showing the spin. Watch it below, from Fox News’ coverage of the February 1 Iowa caucuses. By the way, it’s not just Fox promoting this hype.
