In his regular “Common Sense” monologue, Cavuto attacked Trump’s complaint that “Fox News isn’t working for us anymore,” a comment he’s made several times in the last two weeks about an apparent liberal turn on the network.

“I think the president watches Fox,” Cavuto said. “I also think he’s getting sick of Fox, which is weird, because I think he gets pretty fair coverage on Fox. But the president is making clear that to fact-check him is to be all but dead to him, and (he has) a legion of supporters, who let me know in no uncertain terms that I am either with him totally or a never-Trumper bully.”
“First of all, Mr. President, we don’t work for you. I don’t work for you,” Cavuto continued. “My job is to cover you, not fun over you or rip you, just cover you. Call balls and strikes. Our job is to keep score, not settle scores. In my case, to report the economic numbers with their good and when they’re bad. But when the markets are soaring and with her tumbling. When trade talks looking they’re coming together and when they are look like falling apart. It’s called being fair and balanced, Mr. President.”
Cavuto laid out a long list of examples where Trump seemingly contradicted himself, then took umbrage when the news reported what he had said.
“You’re entitled to your point of view, Mr. President, but you’re not entitled to your own set of facts,” Cavuto concluded.
