Trump Dumps Fox News for “Treating Me Very Unfairly”

Republican front-runner Donald Trump has a sizable lead in most state and national polls, but remains displeased by the way that the media have covered his campaign. Instead of choosing to ignore or rebut negative press, Trump has decided to simply boycott it altogether.

On Wednesday, Trump tweeted that because of the way that Fox News had covered his campaign, he would no longer participate in any Fox shows “for the foreseeable future.” The relationship between Fox and The Donald has been a tumultuous one for some time now, but it is unclear what exactly was the final straw for Trump.

So let this be a lesson to everyone in the media: If you get on Donald Trump’s bad side, he just might do the worst thing possible for your ratings—disappear.

THANK YOU.

We recently wrapped up the crowdfunding campaign for our ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project, and it was a smashing success. About 10,364 readers pitched in with donations averaging $45, and together they contributed about $467,374 toward our $500,000 goal.

That's amazing. We still have donations from letters we sent in the mail coming back to us, so we're on pace to hit—if not exceed—that goal. Thank you so much. We'll keep you posted here as the project ramps up, and you can join the hundreds of readers who have alerted us to corruption to dig into.
