    Trump Goes Off on ‘Fox Board Member Paul Ryan’ and ‘Hater’ Guest on Fox News’ Neil Cavuto Show

    President Donald Trump lashed out on Twitter Thursday, targeting Fox News, Neil Cavuto, former House Speaker Paul Ryan and more in less than 180 characters.“Could somebody at @foxnews please explain to Trump hater A.B. Stoddard (zero talent!) and @TeamCavuto, that I won every one of my debates, from beginning to end. Check the polls taken immediately after the debates. The debates got me elected. Must be Fox Board Member Paul Ryan!” he wrote.The tweet was a response to A.B. Stoddard of RealClearPolitics, who went on-air with Cavuto Thursday during his show “Your World with Neil Cavuto” and described Trump’s own presidential debates as “disastrous.”Also Read: Top 3 Democrats in New Hampshire Primary Were Also the Ones Who Didn't Shun Fox NewsAfter leaving Washington, Ryan joined the board at Fox in March of 2019.Trump has been attacking Fox News with some frequency lately, and while individual on-air talents — including Cavuto — respond from time to time, the network has not ever issued an official response. In January, he criticized the news channel for booking Democratic lawmakers to appear on shows, asking what “the hell” happened to the network he once praised above competitors like CNN and MSNBC.In other attacks on Fox News over the past few months, Trump has said the network used to be comprised of “proud warriors” and insulted its polling unit. Fox News stood by the polling unit.Cavuto addressed the president’s tweet at the end of his show today.“Meanwhile the president not wasting any time, he heard A.B. Stoddard and tweeted out this, that she’s a Trump hater and that ‘I won every’ debate the last go around. You can read that as well as I,” Cavuto said. “But, just to point out, he did not. When you look at polls that came out from FOX, NBC, CNN, Politico, YouGov and a host of others, the initial read was that he had failed to do well in those debates. He ultimately won, but he didn’t poll well in those debates.”Read original story Trump Goes Off on ‘Fox Board Member Paul Ryan’ and ‘Hater’ Guest on Fox News’ Neil Cavuto Show At TheWrap

    Stress, rumors, even violence: Virus fear goes viral

    You might have heard that the fear of a new virus from China is spreading faster than the actual virus. Subway cars in Tokyo and Seoul look more like hospital wards, with armies of masked commuters shooting dirty looks at the slightest cough or sneeze. You've probably got a better chance of winning the lottery than buying face masks in parts of Asia.

    Saudi Arabia Equates Coronavirus’s Oil Impact to a House on Fire

    (Bloomberg) -- Saudi Arabia gave the clearest signal yet of its concerns about the impact of the coronavirus on oil markets, comparing the situation to a blaze that needs the fire brigade.In his first public comments on the virus since January, when he said the epidemic would have a “very limited impact” on oil demand, Saudi Energy Minister Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman described more urgent circumstances to an audience in Riyadh on Wednesday.When asked about the impact of the coronavirus on oil, the prince equated it with a burning house, according to people who heard the comments, but asked not to be named because the event was closed to the press. You can either treat it with a garden hose and risk losing the building, or call the fire brigade, he said.Some would say that calling the fire brigade projects panic and it could damage the furniture, the prince said. But doing so would simply be acting responsibly, and you would save the house, he said, according to the people. The Saudi Energy Ministry didn’t immediately reply to a request for comment.The prince’s statements offer an explanation of why, behind closed doors, Saudi Arabia has been an advocate for an emergency meeting of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries in order to deepen production cuts. Despite those efforts, the group seems to have abandoned tentative plans for urgent talks in February after the kingdom failed to persuade Russia.The toll on oil consumption from the epidemic has been severe. Chinese refineries are throttling back to cope with weak demand, processing 25% less oil than they were last year. World oil consumption will decline this quarter for the first time in more than a decade as the virus reduces travel and economic activity in China, according to the International Energy Agency.To contact the reporter on this story: Annmarie Hordern in London at ahordern1@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: James Herron at jherron9@bloomberg.net, Christopher SellFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
