Fox News’ Ainsley Earhardt shut down Sen. Ted Cruz’s attack on colleague Chris Wallace Thursday morning during “Fox & Friends.”“Look, I think the president’s right on this,” said Cruz of President Donald Trump’s announcement he wouldn’t participate in a virtual debate. “And unfortunately, I think this is a pattern we’ve seen play out throughout the debates, where the moderators and the debate commission have behaved like arms of the Joe Biden campaign. I think at the first debate, I think Chris Wallace did a terrible job moderating. Last night, I think Susan Page did a better job moderating. She didn’t interrupt as much.”He went on with his discussion of how, in his mind, a virtual debate “benefits” Democratic nominee Joe Biden.Also Read: Chris Wallace: Trump 'Bears the Primary Responsibility for What Happened' at Debate (Video)When she got to respond, Earhardt addressed the comments on Wallace: “Well, just to defend Chris Wallace, he’s part of our family and it’s not easy to debate — to moderate a debate — and I’ve watched other moderators say sometimes when you’re up there on stage — all the time when you’re up there on stage — and you’re in charge of asking the questions, you see something different than what the audience is seeing at home and it’s a difficult situation. I thought Chris did a fine job and he’s one of our friends and he’s part of our family, Ted Cruz.”The Republican senator said he understood and Earhardt went on, “All right. I just wanted to clarify that because we love him.”After last week’s debate, Wallace said he’d “never been through anything” like it and reflected on the “desperation” he felt from the moderator’s seat to gain control over the evening.“I’m a pro. I’ve never been through anything like this,” Wallace told the New York Times last Wednesday. “I never dreamt that it would go off the tracks the way it did.”Watch Earhardt and Cruz above, via Fox News.Read original story Fox News’ Ainsley Earhardt Shuts Down Ted Cruz’s Attack on Chris Wallace: ‘He’s Part of Our Family’ At TheWrap

A woman says that Ghislaine Maxwell, Jeffrey Epstein’s confidante, raped her between 20 to 30 times when she was a teenager.In an interview with Fox News reporter Bryan Llenas, the woman (who chose to remain anonymous and was only referred to as Jane Doe) said that she is willing to take the stand and testify against Maxwell, who was arrested by the FBI on Thursday morning in New Hampshire. “She did rape me. I would say it’s more than 20 or 30 times,” the woman told Llenas. “She is just as evil as Jeffrey Epstein … She is a rapist.”Doe told Fox News that she wanted to testify against Maxwell because she “deserves to be where she’s at today and she deserves to stay there for the rest of her life. I hope by me coming forward, it encourages other victims to stand up and say, you know, to be honest, let your voice be heard.”The woman said the abuse, which first started back in 1991 when she was just 14 years old, came to an end only after she became pregnant with Jeffrey Epstein’s baby. “I had never been with anyone except for him [Epstein],” she said. “The fact that I had to kill my child really affected me and my family.”Also Read: Jeffrey Epstein Documentary Director: Ghislaine Maxwell's Arrest Is 'An Important Day for Justice'The British socialite was arrested on charges that she conspired with the financier to sexually abuse minors, recruiting girls as young as 14.The indictment, reviewed by TheWrap, cited 1994 to 1997 as the years when the FBI says Maxwell “facilitated and contributed to Jeffrey Epstein’s abuse of minor girls by, among other things, helping Epstein to recruit, groom, and ultimately abuse victims known to Maxwell and Epstein to be under the age of 18.”Epstein died by suicide in a federal detention center in New York while awaiting trial on the trafficking charges last year.Read original story Woman Accuses Ghislaine Maxwell of Raping Her ’20-30 Times’ as a Teen, Willing to Testify At TheWrap

On Thursday night, Fox News host Laura Ingraham addressed the backlash she received for coming to the defense of New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees the night before.

CNN’s public relations department responded to a tweet from President Donald Trump Tuesday and suggested he had “more important issues” to contend with than taking jabs at the success of the network’s primetime hosts.“Yesterday was a bad day for the Cuomo Brothers. New York was lost to the looters, thugs, Radical Left, and all others forms of Lowlife & Scum. The Governor refuses to accept my offer of a dominating National Guard. NYC was ripped to pieces. Likewise, Fredo’s ratings are down 50%!” the president declared on Twitter, referring to CNN primetime anchor Chris Cuomo as “Fredo.”“Surely you have more important issues than TV ratings to address. But since you’ve made it a priority, we’ll correct the record,” came the reply from CNN’s PR shop. “@ChrisCuomo has had his highest ratings in history for the past two months.”Also Read: Fox News Wins Total Viewers for Weekend Protest Coverage, CNN Tops Key DemoMonthly Nielsen research ratings were released Tuesday, though the president’s statistic more closely matched one from a Daily Mail piece released over the weekend.

In the advertiser-coveted age demographic of viewers 25-to-54, it saw an average of 513,000.Meanwhile, Trump-favored network Fox News hit some milestones, too, logging its 47th consecutive month in the top spot across all of cable in total-day viewership and 221st consecutive month as the top-rated cable news network in total viewers across both total-day and primetime.Read original story CNN Disputes Trump’s Chris Cuomo Jab: ‘Surely You Have More Important Issues Than TV Ratings’ At TheWrap

ABC News’ Will Reeve got caught going pants-less on “Good Morning America” Tuesday and responded good-naturedly on Twitter.“I have ARRIVED,” he tweeted before adding, “in the most hilariously mortifying way possible.”He was responding to one of the many tweets that called him out for very clearly not being fully dressed below the waist during his morning hit, which was done remotely. Like most other on-air personalities in the age of the coronavirus and social distancing, Reeve was telecommuting, beaming himself into the nationally-aired show live from his living room.Also Read: Fox News' Dana Perino's Tips for Working From Home: Keep a Schedule, Step Away When You CanOn-air talent often jokes about only wearing business attired up top, even during in-studio hits, but the whole gag hinges on viewers not being able to tell.Earlier on Tuesday, he responded to the original viral tweet about the slip-up.
