‘Fox & Friends’ hosts accuse CBS, NBC of ‘conveniently’ sitting on Biden docs, call for investigation

A healthy rivalry between news outlets is nothing to stop the presses over, but when one news network calls for an investigation into two of its competitors for sitting on a story to swing an election, headlines are going to be written.

That’s exactly what happened Tuesday morning on “Fox & Friends” when co-hosts Brian Kilmeade, Ainsley Earhardt, and Steve Doocy deconstructed the timeline surrounding the discovery of classified documents in President Joe Biden’s possession.

They ran through the events that began on November 2nd when Biden’s lawyers cleaned out the president’s office at the Penn Biden Center and exploded five weeks later after more documents were found in Biden’s garage.

“Why didn’t we know about this before the election?” Kilmeade asked. “Whose decision was it?”

Kilmeade pointed to White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain and said, “he evidently is frustrated that this is the number one story because he wants to talk about anything but this.”

“Doesn’t he understand how Washington works yet?” the co-host asked. “This is the biggest story. Even Democrats admit it.”

“Such a double standard,” lamented Earhardt. “He said President Trump was irresponsible for having classified information. Meanwhile, we keep finding more at his location at his office in Washington, three different times they found classified materials at his Wilmington, Delaware, house.”

“We want to know why they kept this from the American people before the election,” she demanded. “They knew about this days before the midterms. Why was Trump’s house raided and not Biden’s house? Why did the FBI take pictures of Trump’s classified documents and not Joe Biden’s, and why weren’t Donald Trump’s attorneys allowed to be inside Mar-a-Lago when they were raiding his house, yet Biden’s attorneys were the ones that found all this classified information?”

Doocy pointed out that Trump’s attorneys were at former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate when the FBI conducted its unprecedented raid, and as Kilmeade stated, “they were pushed back.”

Doocy was more concerned with the timing of discovery, after the Democrats “were protected for the midterms,” and suggested someone, “maybe on the Democrat side, is trying to sandbag Joe. Get rid of Joe for 2024.”

“Because this was not an authorized leak from the Department of Justice,” he said. “Because they kept it quiet for months. And then suddenly, conveniently, new year, what do we learn? We find out all this stuff.”

And that’s when the trio turned the spotlight on CBS and NBC.

“Is it that,” asked Earhardt, “or were they going to hide this from the American people, and the CBS reporter did some investigations, did some digging, and found out that he had classified materials?”

“Were they going to keep it from us?” she wanted to know.

“Karl Rove told me on Saturday that they had the — CBS had — the story in the fall,” Kilmeade revealed. “They had it in November. And they held it.”

“Why did they hold it?” he asked. “Who convinced them to hold it? Since when do you hold a story like this until January? And then NBC finds out about the next tranche that was found. So, these are two outlets pursuing a story and they seem pretty exercised in the press room, too.”

“If that is true,” Doocy stated, “NBC and CBS — if they knew before the election, they both helped the Democrats and that needs to be an investigation.”
