REPORT: Media, Biden team blast Fox News over comments on candidate’s health
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by TheHill.com:
Former Vice President Joe Biden’s 2020 presidential campaign accused Fox News personalities of spreading rumors about the presidential hopeful being in poor health, The Daily Beast reports.
Fox News host Sean Hannity and Fox Business host Lisa “Kennedy” Montgomery have discussed Biden’s health on the air multiple times. On a May 29 broadcast of “The Five,” Kennedy compared Biden to 2016 Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, saying Democrats are quietly talking about Biden’s health, The Daily Beast reports.
The article goes on to state the following:
“If you talk to Democrats, who are working for different campaigns, all of the aggressive gossip whisperers — and this is where the action is happening in terms of opposition research — it’s people having a few drinks at a bar and whispering, ‘You know there is something wrong with the former vice president,’” she said. Last week, Kennedy said Biden’s staff should keep their candidate “off a main stage” because he says “stupid things and he slurs,” adding that Biden “does look very tired.”
Hannity, who has used the nickname “Sleepy Joe” to refer to Biden, also called the former vice president “tired,” adding “he does not have the energy for this.”
Raw Story blasted Fox News on Twitter, tagging a link to the story, “Fox News is now spreading baseless rumors about Joe Biden’s health.”

“Kennedy claimed to know Dem operatives engaged in a whisper campaign abt Biden’s health.”
of many liabilities actual Dem operatives whisper abt Biden, his health isn’t on the list
+ chances that Kennedy is being whispered to by Dem operatives seem…lowhttps://t.co/mQaVNFTVyA
