The night of Donald Trump‘s indictment for allegedly keeping “classified documents” from his time as President at his Mar-A-Lago residence, FOX News published a chyron on the story that read, “Wannabe dictator speaks at the White House after having his political rival arrested.”
FOX immediately retracted the statement, apologizing and issuing a statement that read, “The chyron was taken down immediately and was addressed.”
“Addressed” meaning the producer, who put the tongue-in-cheek headline (in a nod to Babylon Bee) on the story, was dismissed from the company, owned by News Corp, controlled by the Murdoch family. The producer, Alex McCaskill, who also worked on the Tucker Carlson show on FOX, confirmed his exit via Instagram post shortly after the incident.
Former Fox News producer Alexander McCaskill, who parted ways with the network for airing the “wannabe dictator” chyron, posted this photo of him leaving Fox offices on his Instagram.

Yet the point of the chyron stands.
How involved is President Biden in the massive all-out persecution of his political enemy, Donald Trump? This relentless witch hunt against a former President is unprecedented. The irony is that Biden was just caught in the same offense, having confidential, classified documents at his home in Delaware, in his garage, at the University of Pennsylvania, etc. Yet the Biden administration is persecuting President Trump, who single-handedly is the biggest threat to the radical left agenda and woke ideology. If our nation is founded on “Justice for all,” why is Biden exempt but Trump prosecuted?
Tucker Carlson chimed in on his new Tucker on Twitter Show, sharing his thoughts and commentary and adding to the thoughts around Biden’s actions as dictatorial. Worth the listen.
