A source at Fox Business told Mediaite that White House Senior administration officials asked Fox Business producers to stop host Maria Bartiromo from asking questions about Trump’s unprovoked attacks against Sen. John McCain’s corpse.
However, Bartiromo ignored the alleged government censorship, and asked Trump about his attacks against the dead senator.
Trump got visibly upset when his censorship efforts failed:

Bartiromo countered: “It’s not fake news.”
