Fox News is facing a schism in its coverage of the 2020 election. The network faced harsh criticism from the Trump campaign for calling Arizona for then-candidate Joe Biden, and since then has been torn between reporting on baseless claims of voter fraud and calling victory for Biden.

On Monday, Fox News host Neil Cavuto cut away from White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany’s press conference after McEnany touted voter fraud accusations without proof.

Host Peter O’Dowd speaks with NPR’s media correspondent David Folkenflik about Fox’s election coverage.
