The biggest story to dominate the news cycle over the last week has been Donald Trump's decision to fire James Comey as the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). In response, Trump has criticized the media over their coverage of the story, which is getting a mixed reaction on Fox News.

Fox News on Comey

As the 2016 presidential election was coming to a close, then FBI Director James Comey shockingly brought up Hillary Clinton's private email server issue relating to her time as Secretary of State during the Barack Obama administration.

Despite Clinton leading in the polls at the time, the speculation brought on by Comey cast further doubt over whether or not she could be trusted, which many Democrats blame for Donald Trump's victory. While Comey was a top enemy for Democrats, he's recently become a thorn in the side for Republicans ever since he was tapped to lead the investigation into what role Russia played in the election, including what their impact was on the Trump campaign. With Comey reportedly not willing to cooperate with the president, he was fired last week causing instant criticism from the media. Though most at Fox News have given Trump the benefit of the doubt, host Chris Wallace wasn't as forgiving. During the May 14 edition of "Fox & Friends," Wallace clashed with a fellow host at the network.

Joining the crew at "Fox & Friends" on Sunday morning was Chris Wallace, with the highlighted topic covering James Comey's firing from the FBI. Co-host Pete Hegseth defended Donald Trump and his criticism of the press, saying, "you can understand his frustrations. It's been about Russian collusion since the beginning." Not stopping there, Hegseth added, "His critics have tried to make him look illegitimate."

Pushing back from Pete Hegseth's comments, Chris Wallace put the blame on the lap of Donald Trump.

"This is a big story,” Wallace said. "This is the first time in history that a president has fired an FBI director who was conducting an investigation that was directly investigating him and his associates," Wallace continued. In addition, Wallace went on to rip Trump for his use of Twitter, as it was clear that not all Fox News hosts were on the same page when it comes to covering the White House and the commander in chief.

As even hosts on the more conservative Fox News debate over whether or not Donald Trump was right in firing James Comey, it doesn't appear like the rest of the mainstream media is willing to back off. Trump has denied any wrongdoing and stands by his decision, as questions still remain around the issue at hand.
