Boom: Bret Baier Mic Drops Oliver Darcy After Twitter Attack, and It Was Awesome

When I think of “fair and balanced journalism”, I think of reporters who present both sides of the debate and allow viewers and readers to make up their own minds, rather than the media engaging in one-sided “reporting” and trying to tell their audience what to think.

This apparently is also the mindset of Fox News “Special Report” host Bret Baier, who is one of the most respected names in journalism once one ventures beyond the fetid fever swamps of CNN and MSNBC.

On Baier’s program Wednesday, he aired clips from President Trump’s 46-minute video alleging election fraud. Baier had guests and panelists give their thoughts on it afterwards.

You should try it,” Baier advised in a mic-drop moment before moving on to more important matters:
