Last week, Fox News correspondent Benjamin Hall was seriously injured when the vehicle he was traveling in was struck by incoming fire just outside of Kyiv, killing two of his colleagues, Pierre Zakrzewski and Oleksandra “Sasha” Kuvshynova.

Hall is out of Ukraine, and the U.S. government helped play a role in getting the reporter out of the war zone as Russia continues its invasion of the country.

During an interview with Defense Press Secretary John Kirby on Monday, “Fox & Friends” hosts Steve Doocy, Ainsley Earhardt, and Brian Kilmeade thanked the Pentagon spokesman for the administration’s part in rescuing the reporter.

“Thank you as well for your — the Department of Defense and the Pentagon — in assisting getting our man Benjamin Hall out of Ukraine,” Doocy told Kirby. “Thank you. God bless you for that,” Earhardt added.

Kirby replied with gratitude, saying that he was elated that their Fox News colleague was able to be evacuated from the situation.

“Well, our thoughts and prayers go to Mr. Hall and all the people at Fox and of course Mr. Hall’s family,” Kirby said.

“We were very glad to be able to help get him the care that he needs, and we look forward to seeing him come home to his family where he belongs. Again it was the right thing to do, and we were pleased to be able to help.”

Kilmeade stepped in to remind Kirby how significant of a role he played in aiding Hall, to ensure the correspondent got out of harm’s way to begin his recovery. “But Admiral, you didn’t help a little; you helped a lot,” Kilmeade said.

“Thanks, Brian. Again, we, unfortunately, as I think you all know, we are all too familiar with these kinds of injuries, and we built up an expertise on how to treat the kinds of injuries that Mr. Hall had,” Kirby replied.

“So, again, it was our honor to be able to help and, again, we just want to see him get home safe and sound and get back to his family, and we applaud the work that he, other Fox journalists, as well as all journalists, are doing even today on the ground in Ukraine.”

Former President Donald Trump has reportedly filed a massive defamation lawsuit against CNN. According to The New York Post, the suit seeks $475 million in punitive damages. 

Trump alleges that the network used its influence to defeat him politically. He also alleges that CNN has ramped up its attacks on him in recent months out of fear that he will run again in 2024. 

Trump is facing a multitude of legal challenges including a criminal investigation from the U.S. Justice Department for his allegedly concealing classified documents. 

In August, federal agents raided Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence looking for any evidence related to the case. Last month, New York State Attorney General Letitia James filed a lawsuit against Trump and some of his children accusing them of lying to banks and insurers over the value of his assets.

“As a part of its concerted effort to tilt the political balance to the left, CNN has tried to taint the Plaintiff with a series of ever-more scandalous, false, and defamatory labels of ‘racist,’ ‘Russian lackey,’ ‘insurrectionist,’ and ultimately ‘Hitler,’” the lawsuit claims.

A Congressional committee is currently investigating Trump’s alleged role in the Jan 6 Capitol riots.

“How about in the year 2022 we stop playing down, minimizing, whitewashing people who literally say or do fascist things?”

MSNBC host Mehdi Hasan took aim at the “quote unquote liberal media” for its lack of criticism of new Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni and her ties to fascism.

The Mehdi Hasan Show host began Sunday’s show by defending a recent tweet discussing Meloni’s victory in Italy’s election, and the problematic nature of some of her comments.

He mentioned he expected Republicans to embrace the new Italian Prime Minister, saying they are “at best, to quote the President, semi-fascist themselves”.

Hasan continued by saying “what has been so depressing, is just how much of the quote unquote liberal media — the mainstream media — are giving her a pass or playing down her and her party’s fascist roots, focusing more on the fact that she is female, and less on the fact that she is a fascist. That has been deeply, deeply depressing to see.”

He concluded by equating headlines from The Washington Post and The New York Times, among others, to those surrounding the 2020 election that said Donald Trump wouldn’t participate in a coup attempt.

“Look, I have a humble suggestion for many of my colleagues in the quote unquote liberal media,” Hasan said while he ended his monologue. “How about in the year 2022 we stop playing down, minimizing, whitewashing people who literally say or do fascist things? People who want to overturn elections and ban Muslims. People who, as in the case of Italy’s next Prime Minister, spout great replacement theory, while running a political party that has a direct connection back to Benito Mussolini himself? Can we try doing that? Please?”
