Did Fox News Call Arizona for Biden With ‘Less Than 1 Percent’ of the Vote In?
Last week, Robert O’Neill—a former Fox News contributor and Navy SEAL known for his role in the killing of Osama bin Laden in 2011— tweeted the false claim that during its coverage of the 2020 presidential election, Fox News prematurely called Arizona for President Joe Biden with “less than 1% in.”
In response to O’Neill’s false statement, Fox News anchor Bret Baier tweeted that O’Neill’s claim is “not true,” and that “Our decision desk called AZ w/ almost 80% of the vote in AFTER polls had closed. Associated Press called AZ that night too. No matter what you think of the call or the audit -this tweet is wrong.”
