  • Former President Trump's spokeswoman lashed out at Fox News for censoring an interview.
  • Fox News appeared to edit out portions of a Trump interview where he lodged false claims of election fraud.
  • Fox News is being sued for defamation by voting machine company Dominion.

Donald Trump's spokeswoman ripped Fox News over the weekend, charging that the former president's baseless election fraud claims were "edited" out of a clip of his interview that the media giant posted on YouTube.

"WOW. So I went to post a clip from President Trump's great interview from @FoxNews last night, and lo and behold, Fox News EDITED and CHANGED what President Trump said, censoring out 45 accurately describing the Fake Election," the spokeswoman, Liz Harrington, tweeted Sunday.

Harrington, a former Republican National Committee spokeswoman, added, "Fox News DELETED President Trump's words: 'You have a Fake Election, you have an election with voter abuse and with voter fraud like nobody has ever seen before and based on that and based on what happened they are destroying our Country…'"

The ex-president has continuously made baseless claims following the 2020 election that it was rigged against him. Trump and his allies had filed dozens of lawsuits to challenge or overturn the election results, but all failed.

"This is just as bad as Big Tech. They are putting President Trump's honest statement, and the concerns of tens of millions of Americans, down the Memory Hole," Harrington continued.

Trump gave the interview Saturday night to Fox's Dan Bongino. In a video of the interview shared to YouTube, a jump cut can be heard in Trump's interview.

Fox News did not immediately respond to a request for comment by Insider.

The network is currently being sued by voting machine company Dominion Voting Systems for defamation, with the company seeking $1.6 billion in damages.

Dominion claims that Fox News personalities and guests spreading baseless claims and conspiracy theories about the company's voting equipment caused both reputational and severe economic damage to the company. Fox News has sought to dismiss the lawsuit by citing the First Amendment.


But Fox News isn't the only network to censor or cut out false election fraud claims perpetuated by its guests.

Newsmax, a smaller conservative network that settled a defamation lawsuit from Dominion in April and retracted and apologized for some of its coverage, has previously cut off the mics of guests who spouted baseless election conspiracies.

In February, before Newsmax settled with Dominion, anchor Bob Sellers cut off MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell's microphone and walked off set after Lindell began launching into a rant about Dominion machines. Lindell too is being sued by Dominion.
