If you want to get someone’s attention and call them out for anything shady, Twitter is the place to go for that, and that is exactly what Trump’s spokesperson did recently.
After Trump did an interview with Dan Bongino, Fox News took it upon themselves to edit that interview.
Trump’s spokesperson Liz Harrington stated last evening that as she was about to post a clip of the interview with Dan Bongino she noticed that Fox News edited part of the interview where Trump talked about the “fake election”.
Harrington went on to say that the words that were edited were the section when Trump sstated “You have a Fake Election, you have an election with voter abuse and with voter fraud like nobody has ever seen before”.
When the interview aired the words were not edited but after the interview was posted on YouTube it appeared as the Fox News production team made the edits.
Here you can compare the edited versions here:
Did you notice it?
Harington then went on Twitter and made it clear that it was the Fox News production team who made the edits to the video and not Dan Bongino himself.
This had nothing to do with @dbongino, the interview happened to be on his show. Dan is a great friend of America First.
It was @FoxNews who cut out President Trump's statement about the Fake Election, just like they have cut out coverage of election fraud ever since

BREAKING REPORT: Fox News EDITS President Trump’s Interview on “Unfiltered” with Dan Bongino — FILTERS OUT His Accusations of Stolen Election..

Newsweek had more on the story:
President Donald Trump’s chief spokesperson said Sunday that Fox News edited a new interview with Trump to remove unverified claims about election fraud in the 2020 presidential election.
Liz Harrington, a former Republican National Committee spokesperson who was appointed as Trump’s personal spokesperson in June, accused Fox News of censorship after Trump appeared on Bongino’s Saturday night show, Unfiltered, to discuss and criticize Democratic policies under the administration of President Joe Biden.
“Fox News DELETED President Trump’s words,” Harrington tweeted after the interview, sharing a YouTube video that allegedly shows a “jump edit.”
Harrington claimed that the network edited out a quote from Trump calling the election “fake” and mentioning “voter abuse” and “voter fraud.”
Dan Bongino says he is not responsible for the edits Fox News made to President Trump's interview. So who is responsible? The network needs to explain what happened. This was an egregious act.
