Fox News host Harris Faulkner gave a brief on-air “apology” on Thursday, over a segment with the “Outnumbered” panel and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich on Wednesday.

During the Wednesday segment, Faulkner had allowed Gingrich to have the “last word,” but when he dared to mention liberal billionaire George Soros in connection to the violent riots that have ravaged the country over the last few months, the other hosts quickly shut him off.

“The No. 1 problem in almost all the cities is George Soros-elected, left-wing, anti-police, pro-criminal district attorneys who refuse to keep people locked up,” Gingrich said on Wednesday. “Both Harris and Biden have talked very proudly about what they call progressive district attorneys. Progressive district attorneys are anti-police, pro-criminal, and overwhelmingly elected with George Soros’s money. And they are a major cause of the violence we are seeing because they keep putting the violent criminals back on the street.”

Host Melissa Francis immediately declared, “I’m not sure we need to bring George Soros into this.”

“He paid for it,” Gingrich said, as host Marie Harf jumped in as well. “No he didn’t. I agree with Melissa, George Soros doesn’t need to be part of this conversation,” Harf stated.

After a very awkward silence, host Harris Faulkner ended the segment.

On Thursday, Harris aired her “apology.” WATCH BELOW:

During his podcast show on TeamDML.com Thursday morning, Dennis Michael Lynch blasted Fox News for censoring Gingrich. Coming soon on the DMLNewsApp:  DML’s fiery reaction!

Gingrich has been pounding on Soros.  On September 9, he tweeted, “Why are some in the left so afraid of our mentioning George Soros’ name that they scream anti-semitic? It IS his name. He IS funding pro-criminal,anti police district attorneys. Why is the left afraid of the facts?”

On September 13, Gingrich shared a link to a podcast about Soros and tweeted, “Does the rise in crime in our cities correlate to the election of so-called progressive prosecutors? I discuss this issue with my latest podcast guest is Jason Johnson, President of Law Enforcement Legal Defense Fund.”

  1. Anyone with a brain knows soros and a few other billionaires are paying for the people and left wing organizations to riot. But as with anything else the left doesn’t want you to know the truth. This is why facebook, Twitter and the rest block any conservative thoughts or comments

  2. I saw the exchange and was so upset that they treated Newt the way they did. I was thinking “ did Soros threaten Fox or higher ups?”. What’s going on at Fox?

  3. M. Francis Lost respect for you in cutting in on Newt when he was explaining what the problem was… expected it from Marie after you had spoken. I agree with Newt and sorry he was so rudely treated!!

    • Yep I’ve lost respect for Melissa as well, that was really rude. I also expected it from Marie I can’t stand her. I was shocked that Faulkner just sat there and let it happen. That was not much of an apology. I think this should be Newt’s last time on the morning Fox programs.

  4. Of course he’s involved. One body is paying the rioters. He’s on of the few who can do that. He is intent on bringing America down. Melissa Francis is the one who should apologize. Expected from Harf. She’s the one who said if we get jobs for the terrorists they’d stop being terrorists. That during Obama administration. Her ignorance is well known.

  5. Not an apology. An “explanation” for their blatant, obvious weakness to call Soros by name. Newt is right, and these lawyers who have power in our government *need* to be exposed and drilled on who they are beholden to. Sorry, but their actions show that it’s not The Constitution and America. Speak out, Newt, and you cowards on Fox, siding with those who are destroying our country-shame on you. You should be embarrassed, and *really* apologetic-that little segment was anything *but*, and it was pathetic. Harris….after having done this (by your own admission for 6 years), you know better. When you pull stuff like this, we tend to trust you less, because you have given us reason to doubt your sincerity to the Truth, and *actual* balance on your show. Shame on you. Newt is right; And you are….pathetic. Why are you covering for Those who would destroy our country? Huh?

  6. I agree with all the post above. Thank you Newt so much for speaking the truth and letting fox know there’s some that is a true Trump backer. Shame shame on the Fox for letting your guard down and becoming a lefty and one of the worse. I’m a shame of you all at Fox….and feel so sorry for President Trump. He has people to stab him in the back constantly. Wake up people stop listening to Fox. We are headed for the worse of the worse very soon. God is coming and while these people are fighting and making a mockery out of truth, Jesus has had enough.

  7. The news media’s are truly the enemy of the people , they defend everything the far left socialists stand for and censor anyone that dares to speak out against the socialist left .so much for fair and balanced, Fox has shown its true colors, they are indeed just another socialist leaning news media trying to pass themselves off as a fair and balanced news organization. Nice try Fox, you have failed and have lost another long time viewer.

    • Lost me, too. Newt is telling the truth & That leaves us all thinking Soros bought Fox out. What a shame. Fox used to be a fair & true show. How dare you mistreated Newt that way.

  8. I saw the segment because I watch the show everyday and if I can’t it’s taped. That was appalling to CENSOR Newt. To hear Melissa and then Marie Harth chime in about not “bringing George Soros into this conversation”. Why the hell not!!!??? I expect that from Marie but Melissa and Harris. Harris sat passively as this censorship unfolded. Wow!! Well, I’ve removed both Harris Faulkner’s shows from my shows recording list.

    As for Harris’ apology, that was actually worse than the namby pamby “if I have offended anyone”. Weak!! That was undeniably the worst non-apology apology I’ve ever heard. Wow!! I’m just shocked.

    • Lost me, too. Newt is telling the truth & That leaves us all thinking Soros bought Fox out. What a shame. Fox used to be a fair & true show. How dare you mistreated Newt that way. I agree!

  9. Melissa Francis and Harf owes Newt Gingrich and apology! That is just WRONG!Going to Newsmax , America’s voice & Just the News. If Fox can’t be truthful and NOT censorship then they are like CNN, MSNBC.. etc.

    • I have been watching just strictly OAN One America News. Great station. I haven’t watched Fox since last yr. I only catch a few of the evening programs online.

  10. Really don’t want to hear this supposed apologies. Only people that actually don’t know that Soros and bunch are paying for these things need to apologize. But these people know it’s true. One day these people are going to keep ignoring these facts and we’re going to wake up in a country like Venezuela. Then these news anchors will be down in the gutters with the rest of us. And maybe they’ll think. Why didn’t I listen to people like Gingrich.

  11. Anyone with half a brain knows Soros is behind all the looting, violence and rioting, the bastard is funding it all. AND for Marie Harf to stand up for him is a damn crime. Can’t stand her and she shouldn’t be a Fox contributor..as far as Melissa is concerned, she had a hell of a nerve! She should be the one apogizing, not Harris!

  12. Oh, Now she idolizes Newt… We see right thru you . She is pathetic. All high and mighty “as the senior member of this segment” We see right (actually left) through you. You can only B.S. the public and your viewers so long .
    Fox is in the dumpster wars now.

  13. What BS! That wasn’t an apology at all! She didn’t take any responsibility but rather deflected as though it was some collective snaffoo. She is in my opinion, a operative for the left. You must ask yourself the blatantly obvious question of WHY she and the other woman would cut him off to protect SOROS! There is NO sane explanation other than those two women obviously thinking they would catch hell from SOMEONE if they didn’t shut it down. So WHO is the SOMEONE these two were worried they would have to answer to if they let Newt speak freely?

  14. Fox lost me long ago,when they hired the snake Ryan the writing was on the wall, Tucker is the only one with the balls to speak the truth on FOX!

  15. Fox is on the payroll…what a disgrace to be so rude to newt…he told the truth and was stopped. Harris sat there like a deer looking at headlights and softly said lets move on…what a coward…I do not watch these people anymore…they drink the koolaid every morning before the show told what to say and what not to say and have become puppits…bye bye ladies you lost me and I know many others…

  16. She didn’t apologize properly. Anyone that heard it knows full well that WAS censorship. Can anyone in the media be honest and stop covering for this guy? And why is he still in the U.S. anyway?

  17. We aren’t as stupid as they think we are—- I live on the border of N.M.– We knew Soros was
    behind the “caravans” coming from South America. Didn’t like the way they treated Pres. Trump
    last Tues.
