Chyron cop Oliver Darcy takes issue with Bret Baier and how Fox News is handling Jennifer Griffin’s reporting

GOOD: CNN is *FINALLY* policing chyrons.

BAD: Not their own.

Here’s the latest from CNN’s Oliver Darcy who is taking issue with multiple chyrons on Fox News related to Jennifer Griffin’s reporting that allegedly confirmed parts of The Atlantic story:

pretty weird chyron for a story your own outlet has confirmed key details of pic.twitter.com/xolRIZsQTH

First up, quotation marks — how do they work?

Anyone want to explain to Oliver how quotation marks work? https://t.co/m4vXIyc43y

And spare us any anger over chyrons Mr. “Fiery But Peaceful”:

Also, no one from CNN, the home of Fiery But Peaceful, should comment on chyrons

Darcy, however, wasn’t done:

this is the strongest chyron Fox has run and it doesn’t do @JenGriffinFNC‘s reporting justice. what info does “COMMANDER IN CHIEF” relay to viewers? how are viewers supposed to know what the vietnam quote is? pic.twitter.com/Wa2Znd0BQN

This guy is unbelievable. There’s nothing wrong with this as Fox News has reporters contradicting each other:

After presenting the denials of The Atlantic story, and then @JenGriffinFNC‘s reporting, @BretBaier says, “Thought we we lay all of that out for you at home to make a decision.”

He mad:

Just remarkable that after Fox’s own reporter *CONFIRMS* key details of The Atlantic’s report, this is the headline on the network’s website. pic.twitter.com/uiPEOegrwl

More criticism of Baier:

Fox now running this chyron. C’mon @BretBaier, you’re supposed to be a newsman! Your own outlet has confirmed key details of the report! pic.twitter.com/OAN9hYhoic

And, boy, can you believe Fox News is trying to discredit this whole story by *checks notes* putting Pete Buttigieg on the air?

Have you ever seen an outlet work so hard to undermine / discredit its own reporting? pic.twitter.com/8WkQqV4PtT

Honest question: What does he think about any of the CNN chyrons we’ve criticized?

another chyron from the 7pm hour — worth noting that this is purportedly one of Fox’s hard-hitting “straight news” shows, not opinion programming pic.twitter.com/18Ukpa5ZMq

This is how the cable-news game is played and HE KNOWS IT:

Fox anchor @JonScottTV allows Trump comms director @TimMurtaugh on the show to attack the reporting as “fake” without once pushing back and noting that Fox has *confirmed* some of the very reporting he’s bashing
