Fox News has found an interesting way to spin the whole President Trump is connected to Russia saga.
In their words, it’s “news you can’t use” and they will avoid reporting on it when possible.
Take for example a Monday clip of “Fox and Friends” where the segment focused on whether or not American families cared about Trump’s ties to Russia.

Rather than focus on FBI Director James Comey and his revelation that the FBI is investigating Russia for interfering in the 2016 election and helping Trump, Fox News would rather decide whether the story is worth reporting to the American people.
They also decided to avoid talking about the fact that the FBI dismissed the wiretapping claims that Trump has droned on about for several weeks.
“Why is the mainstream media harping on the Russia story?” asked the host.
“Basically because it’s a way for them to undermine President Trump’s presidency,” one of the moms, Beth Parlato, explained serenely. (Parlato is also an attorney focusing on family law.) “They want to infer that he shouldn’t have won and he’s not their president. So they want to keep their story going. And personally I think the left needs to stop their whining. We all know that cybersecurity is an issue. It’s a fact that the DNC was hacked by Russia. so why doesn’t the left get onboard with President Trump and his administration and let’s work on —it’s a nonpartisan issue, the national security.”
“Let me just ask: are any of you concerned that President Trump, his campaign colluded with Russia to get elected?” the host asked.
“No,” they all responded in unison.
“Put the narrative aside,” added one of the moms, Deborah Antignano. “Report real news, do away with the fake news.”
Think about that for a second, the FBI has admitted that there is an ongoing investigation into Trump and his Russian ties, and the right still believes it is “fake news.”

“I’m concerned about national security,” added Josey Kakty, a woman of Syrian descent who supports the ban on Syrian refugees.
