In an look on Cavuto Live Saturday, Griffin defended her reporting: “My sources are not anonymous to me and I doubt they are anonymous to the president,” Griffin advised Neil Cavuto. “I can tell you that my sources are unimpeachable.”
Cavuto famous that “you are a very good reporter—and then some. Jennifer Griffin following the story here. She’s pretty scrupulous when it comes to making sure all the i’s are dotted and all the t’s are crossed.”
On Friday, Griffin—citing two former senior Trump Administration officers—confirmed key parts of The Atlantic’s story, together with Trump’s resolution to not drive to the Aisle-Marne Cemetery outdoors Paris to honor fallen American troopers. “The President drives a lot,” certainly one of Griffin’s sources mentioned, “the other world leaders drove to the cemeteries. He just didn’t want to go.”
That angered the president, who referred to as for Griffin’s dismissal and added “Fox News is gone!” But Fox News journalists had been fast to hitch reporters from different shops in defending Griffin. Bryan Llenas, a Fox News nationwide correspondent, mentioned “Jennifer Griffin is the kind of reporter we all strive to be like. She’s courageous, smart, ethical, fair and a class act.”
