Newsmax host Eric Bolling used his primetime opportunity to attack his former employer, Fox News, as he accused the network of going "woke." On Friday, July 16, Bolling appeared on primetime television where he filled in for Greg Kelly.

According to Mediaite, Bolling argued that the network had become woke because it had refrained from sounding off about Major League Baseball's (MLB) decision to relocate its All-Star game from Atlanta, Ga., to Denver, Colo., in the wake of Georgia lawmakers passing their controversial voting law. The Republican-led restrictive piece of voting legislation became a point of contention that many voting advocates see as a way to suppress Black voters.

"Fox News, like me, loves to call out the woke cancel culture warriors for what they are — frauds — playing the race card whenever and wherever they can," said Bolling. Then, he sounded off on Fox News' presumed failure to express outrage about the MLB's decision.

But where were they when MLB 'canceled' the All Star game over being woke? They were silent. Silent. Now I wonder why Fox was so quiet on the All Star game flip flop. After all, they claim to be against the leftists ruining the country by constantly playing the race card here, there, and everywhere, and against the cancer that cancel culture is, why were they silent when it came to the All-Star game? Look no further than their program guide. Turns out Fox was broadcasting that Major League Baseball All Star game. Watch these Fox shows not only not call out Major League Baseball for their ill-conceived move to cancel the Atlanta All-Star game, they actually promoted the Denver game.
