President Donald Trump reportedly called Rupert Murdoch on Tuesday night when Fox News announced an Arizona win for Trump’s Democratic opponent Joe Biden.

The president complained about how the news network treated him unfairly by prematurely calling the win.

Trump phoned Murdoch, the owner of Fox, and demanded Fox News to take back their projection.

Murdoch refused to retract their call on Arizona which was met with criticism from Fox News staff members and other networks.

Former Trump adviser Sam Nunberg also accused Fox of bad faith.

Nunberg told Vanity Fair, “Fox News committed news malpractice and voter suppression last night.”

“There’s got to be a change there or there will be major consequences. Chris Wallace wouldn’t shut up the whole night! I switched to CNN anytime he came on,” he added.

Fox’s call on Biden’s Arizona win has given the Democrat a higher electoral vote count than CNN or MSNBC has. It also denied Trump the ability to falsely claim victory on Tuesday night as he reportedly had planned to do.
