(National Sentinel)Â Head-Scratcher: The media correspondent forÂ CNN, Brian Stelter, is calling outÂ Fox News‘ “Fox & Friends” morning show because the hosts reported an accurate polling statistic comparing Presidents Donald J. Trump and Barack Obama.
On ThursdayÂ The National Sentinel reported that Trump’s approval rating had popped to 46 percent, while his disapproval had fallen to 53 percent.
â€œFox & Friendsâ€ shared this fact on air Friday morning, leading the president to tweet out his satisfaction about the polls.
While the Fake News loves to talk about my so-called low approval rating, @foxandfriends just showed that my rating on Dec. 28, 2017, was approximately the same as President Obama on Dec. 28, 2009, which was 47%…and this despite massive negative Trump coverage & Russia hoax!

But according to Stelter, it was a “disservice” to viewers of Fox & Friends for the show to share that information.
â€œThis is a prime example of how â€˜Fox & Friendsâ€™ does a disservice to viewers,â€ Stelter tweeted.

However, according to a Dec. 28, 2009 poll by Rasmussen Reports, the same firm that released Trump’s latest approval ratings, had Obama at 47 percent favorable; just a day later, on Dec. 29, Obama’s rating fell to 46 percent favorable and 53 percent unfavorable, the same as Trump’s.
“SoÂ Brian Stelter is apparently angry that Fox News reported poll numbers that are factually accurate because they happen to be favorable to the president. Very unbiased,”Â The Daily Caller observed.
