Former special counsel Robert Mueller will testify Wednesday morning before two House committees, and the hearings will be televised. However, according to one of the leaders of the writers’ wing of the anti-Trump Resistance, one cable network won’t be carrying the hearings:
FOX news shows the president’s rallies but won’t show Robert Mueller’s testimony? What happened to “Fair and Balanced?”

King’s not a member of the media but that didn’t stop him from getting in on the “fake news” action:
32,000 likes for a fabrication. Good thing twitter is protecting us from fake news. Where are CNN's hall monitors? On lunch break?

Well look at that:
FOX News Channel (FNC) will present live coverage of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s testimony before both the House Judiciary Committee and the House Intelligence Committee on Wednesday, July 24th beginning at 8:15AM/ET preempting FOX & Friends. Special Report’s Bret Baier and The Story’s Martha MacCallum will co-anchor coverage live from Washington throughout both testimonies.
But King’s tweet whipped up plenty of Resistance frenzy, which was probably its purpose.
Why would you tell a bald faced lie like that Mr. King? I just saw an ad for FOX News saying their coverage of the Mueller hearing would start at 8 am Wednesday morning. What do you hope to accomplish with a lie that's so easily disproved?
