WATCH: Fox News Weatherman Brutally Attacked on NYC Subway

Fox News meteorologist Adam Klotz was brutally attacked by a group of teenagers a New York City subway, leaving him bruised and battered.

Klotz, who has been with the network since 2017, detailed the altercation in two videos posted on his Instagram account. He also disclosed that police officers had apprehended at least a couple of the attackers.

“Hear me out, though: you should see the other guy,” Klotz joked in the first video while revealing his discolored face. “My side—oh, don’t laugh—my side is so much worse than my face.”

Klotz noted that the “other guy” was really “five or six children,” wondering “where are the parents,” and asking them not to “let your kids beat up people in the middle of the night.”

In the second video, the 37-year-old took a more serious tone and provided more details about the incident. He said he was on the train headed home after watching an NFL playoff game at a bar. He saw an “older gentleman” who was “being hassled by this group of seven or eight teens.”

The meteorologist continued: “And I was like, ‘Yo, guys, cut that out.’ And they decided, ‘Alright, he’s not gonna get it, then you’re going to get it!’ And boy, did they give it to me. They had me on the ground—my ribs are all kinds of bruised up too. They got their hits in!”

Klotz noted that the aforementioned older man “got out of there fine” and the “cops grabbed a couple of these kids” after the attack.

According to police sources who spoke with the New York Post, Klotz confronted the teens on the train around 1:15 a.m. The group fled the train at the 18th Street stop and three of them were detained by police not long after.

Ultimately, the three suspects — two 15-year-olds and a 17-year-old — were released from custody.

“Juvenile reports were prepared, and their parents were called to pick them up,” a New York Police Department spokesperson told the outlet.

“I got a couple of X-rays. I’m okay. This is all going to heal,” Klotz stated in the second video, sarcastically adding: “It’s all good! You know what I mean? New York City! New York City! Ahh, what a place. The Big Apple!”

WATCH: Tulsi Gabbard Rips into George Santos During Fox News Interview

1775: Battle of Quebec in American Revolutionary War; Americans defeated trying to take British stronghold.

Former Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard tore into New York Rep.-elect George Santos over his fabrications about his personal and professional background during a tense Fox News interview.

Gabbard, who was filling in for host Tucker Carlson, didn’t mince words with Santos.

“If I were one of those in New York’s 3rd District right now, now that the election is over, and I’m finding out all of these lies that you’ve told, not just one little lie or one little embellishment — these are blatant lies — my question is, do you have no shame?” she asked.

“Do you have no shame? And the people who are now, you’re asking to trust you to go and be their voice for them, their families and their kids in Washington?”

Santos responded, saying he “can say the same thing about the Democrats.”

“Look at Joe Biden. Joe Biden has been lying to the American people for 40 years. He’s the president of the United States. Democrats resoundingly support him. Do they have no shame?” he said.

Gabbard interjected, saying that she wasn’t asking about the Democrats.

During various interviews this week, Santos admitted to “embellishing” his resume. But he’s also faced scrutiny for inaccurately representing himself as an “American Jew” and claiming that his grandparents fled the Nazis during World War II.

Gabbard pressed Santos on the subject during the “Tucker Carlson Tonight” interview.

“My heritage is Jewish. I’ve always identified as Jewish. I was raised as a practicing Catholic,” Santos said. “Not being raised a practicing Jew, I’ve always joked with friends and circles, even within the campaign, I’d say, guys, I’m ‘Jew-ish.’ Remember, I was raised Catholic.”

“So, look, I understand everybody wants to nitpick at me. I’m gonna reassure this once and for all. I’m not a facade. I’m not a persona. I have an extensive career that I worked really hard to achieve. And I’m going to deliver from my experience because I remain committed in delivering results for the American people,” he said.

Gabbard concluded the interview, saying: “Congressman-elect Santos, we’ve given you a lot of time. I think the time that is owed is to the people of New York’s 3rd. It’s hard to imagine how they could possibly trust your explanations when you’re not really even willing to admit the depth of your deception to them.”

WATCH: Fox News Host Lashes Out: “I’m Pissed Tonight!”

Fox News host Laura Ingraham didn’t hold back after her network called the Georgia Senate runoff race for Democrat candidate Raphael Warnock.

“I’m pissed tonight, frankly,” Ingraham said of Republican nominee Herschel Walker’s loss.

Warnock’s victory means that the Democrats expanded their Senate majority. The GOP loss follows what was viewed as an underperformance in this year’s midterm elections.

But Ingraham said she wasn’t surprised by Walker’s loss, blasting Republican leadership for failing to properly bolster their party’s candidate.

“I’d like to say this was surprising, but it’s not. The Senate Democrats, I would argue, did a much better job,” she lamented.

“We felt this coming,” Ingraham told Fox News contributor Mollie Hemingway. “To me, it never felt like the Senate Republicans wanted this guy in office. He was a Trump pick, and they didn’t like that,” Ingraham said, adding that “there wasn’t the intensity on the part of the Republicans as there was on the part of the Democrats.”

She continued: “But we don’t change anything! We have the same people in place in leadership. The same people in place, apparently at the RNC, perhaps that’s not changing. We are doing the same thing over and over again. I’m pissed tonight, frankly!”

Ingraham addressed Fox News correspondent Kellyanne Conway, who previously served as a White House counselor under former President Donald Trump.

“Kellyanne, I know you didn’t want any change. I like Ronna McDaniel,” Ingraham said, referencing the RNC’s chairwoman. “Isn’t this like a warning sign flashing, or are we just going to keep doing the same thing all over again every single election?!”

WATCH: Biden Snaps at Fox News Reporter

President Joe Biden snapped at a Fox News reporter who asked him which issue was his top priority: abortion rights or inflation.

As Biden was wrapping up remarks delivered from the White House on Wednesday, Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy called out a question.

Doocy asked: “Just hoping to clarify for midterm voters, top domestic issue: inflation or abortion?”

Biden responded: “They’re all important. Unlike you, there’s no one thing. It crosses the board. Domestic — ask me about foreign policy too. There’s multiple, multiple, multiple issues, and they’re all important.”

The president continued: “And so — and we ought to be able to walk and chew gum at the same time. You know that old expression?”

Mediaite noted Doocy wasn’t alone in receiving an impatient response from Biden on Wednesday. Earlier, he fumed at the suggestion that his releasing oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve was “politically motivated” ahead of the midterm elections.

“I’ve been doing this for how long now? It’s not politically motivated at all. It’s motivated to make sure that I continue to push on what I’ve been pushing on, and that is making sure there’s enough oil that’s being pumped by the companies so that we have the ability to be able to produce enough gas that we need here at home,” Biden said.

WATCH: Fox News Reporter Carries Hurricane Victim to Safety

A Fox News correspondent reporting from Florida carried an elderly survivor to dry land amid the mass floods caused by Hurricane Ian.

Steve Harrigan said the rescuers were a “mish-mash” of government workers and volunteers.

Harrigan explained his motivations for helping out while Fox News’s “The Story” showed a video of him carrying the man.

“Everyone is sort of just pitching in to try and get people out of the water,” Harrigan said, adding that “everyone is lending a hand.”

In the video, Harrigan walks into the water where the boat’s stopped. He puts the man over his shoulder before walking him to dry land.

The Fox News correspondent said some people might not be able to move around well, and he would hope someone would help his mother if she were in the same situation.

Trump Says “Fox & Friends” Has Gone to the “Dark Side”

Former President Donald Trump said that Fox News’s morning show Fox & Friends has “gone to the ‘dark side.'”

“@foxandfriends just really botched my poll numbers, no doubt on purpose,” Trump wrote on his social media app, Truth Social. “That show has been terrible — gone to the ‘dark side.’ They quickly quote the big Turning Point Poll victory of almost 60 points over the number two Republican, and then hammer me with outliers. Actually, almost all polls have me leading all Republicans & Biden BY A LOT.”

Trump was referencing the show’s coverage of a new poll from Turning Point USA, which showed the former president doing far better than every other potential GOP primary candidate.

“That is a little different than a couple of other polls we’ve seen over the past couple of weeks,” Fox News’s Steve Doocy said. “So it’s like the young people who are activists at that [Turning Point] event like the former president, but looking at these other polls, different answer.”

“If you look state by state, Ron DeSantis is showing tremendous strength in New Hampshire, Michigan, and Florida,” co-host Brian Kilmeade added.

Trump’s post on Truth Social also included a dig at “RINO Paul Ryan,” who is on the Fox Corp. board.

“RINO Paul Ryan, one of the weakest and worst Speakers EVER, must be running the place,” Trump said.

The Fox News coverage comes shortly after the editorial board of the New York Post said that Trump has proved himself to be “unworthy” of another presidential term.

Business Insider referred to the outlet’s op-ed, published Friday, as a “stunning reversal of fortune for Trump.”

Tucker Carlson Addresses Accusations

1777: Independent Vermont introduces a new constitution, prohibiting slavery.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson addressed accusations of ties to white supremacist ideology, vehemently denying the claims.

“I’ve never had a white supremacist work for me. I don’t think I’ve ever talked to a white supremacist,” Carlson told Ben Smith, the Semafor co-founder and editor-in-chief, at an event on Thursday.

“I’m not sure what that means,” he added. “I know it’s a slur and the worst thing that a person can be. I don’t really understand the terms.”

Smith played a clip from an episode of Tucker Carlson Tonight in which the host says Democrats are working to “replace” Americans with new voters from other countries. Critics say rhetoric like this amplifies the so-called “Great Replacement” theory.

“I have no empathy for people who derive their judgments about anything from 30-second clips on Media Matters,” Carlson responded, referencing the liberal watchdog group.

At one point during the tense interview, Smith asks Carlson why he’s “been flypaper for racists.”

“I believe that people are not defined by their race, any race,” Carlson said. “People are defined, their value is derived from the fact that they were, A, created by God, and, B, by what they do, by the choices they make. They’re not part of some larger group, they’re individuals. I believe in the individual, and I say that virtually every night.”

When asked what he’d say to critics who believe Carlson is racist, he said: “I don’t know what to say to you.”

“I’m stating my sincere views as reflected in my personal life and my professional life as clearly as I can,” Carlson said.

Carlson’s portion of the event starts at about the 1:08:04 mark in the video below:

Schumer Asks Fox News To Stop Amplifying “Great Replacement” Theory

Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) penned a letter to Fox News leaders, calling on them to stop the “reckless amplification of the so-called ‘Great Replacement’ theory” on the network.

“I write to urge you to immediately cease the reckless amplification of the so-called ‘Great Replacement’ theory on your network’s broadcasts,” Schumer wrote to network executives in a letter published by the New York Times.

“For years, these types of beliefs have existed at the fringes of American life. However, this pernicious theory, which has no basis in fact, has been injected into the mainstream thanks in large part to a dangerous level of amplification by your network and its anchors,” Schumer wrote.

Schumer specifically named Fox News host Tucker Carlson in his letter as a proponent of the replacement theory.

“A recent New York Times investigation found that Tucker Carlson alone amplified this dangerous and unfounded theory in more than 400 episodes of his show.”

Carlson addressed the criticism on his show, denouncing the shooter as “racist, bitterly so” and called for the focus to be placed on the victims.

“There is only one answer to rising racial tension, and that is to de-escalate and do what we have done and tried to do for hundreds of years, which is work toward colorblind meritocracy, and treat people as human beings created by God, rather than as faceless members of interest groups that might benefit some political party or other,” Carlson said on his show.

“We have a moral duty to do this because all people have equal moral value, no matter what they look like. All lives matter. Period.”

Fox News Reporter Injured in Ukraine

1783: In an emotional speech in Newburgh, New York, George Washington asks his officers not to support the Newburgh Conspiracy. The plea is successful, and the threatened coup d’etat never takes place.

A Fox News journalist was injured in Ukraine while covering the invasion of Russian troops.

Fox News Media CEO Suzanne Scott confirmed that Benjamin Hall, the network’s State Department correspondent, was injured and is currently hospitalized.

“This is news that we hate to pass along to you, but it sometimes happens in the middle of a conflict,” host John Roberts said.

Roberts said the network was privy to “very few details” and that teams were “working to gather more information.”

“The safety of our Fox team is of the utmost importance and our highest priority,” Roberts said. “More on this as we get it.”  

Hall has been with the network since 2015. He has previously reported from the front lines in Syria and Iraq.

“Covering a war is dangerous business,” Fox News anchor Bret Baier said. “Please keep all of the crews on the ground – and the people there in your prayers – but today – especially Ben.” 

News of the incident comes days after American journalist Brent Renaud was killed in Ukraine while covering the Russian invasion.

Members of the Biden administration acknowledged Hall’s injury during briefings on Monday.

“Our thoughts, the president’s thoughts, our administration’s thoughts are with him, his family, and all of you at Fox News,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki said.

“We certainly wish him all the best a speedy recovery and a safe return,” Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said. “This is a war that didn’t need to be fought … [but] there are journalists from around the world on the ground trying to discover the truth and to show that truth and to tell these important stories.”

Fox News Host Says COVID Vaccine Saved His Life

2012: Wikileaks begins disclosing 5 million emails from private intelligence company Stratfor.

Fox News host Neil Cavuto returned to his show after an unexplained five-week absence, which had worried many viewers.

Cavuto told his Cavuto: Coast to Coast audience that his second bout of COVID-19 had landed him in the intensive care unit, where things were “touch and go” for some time.

The veteran anchor has multiple sclerosis and survived stage 4 cancer and open-heart surgery, meaning he’s one of the 3% of Americans with a weakened immune system who “cannot sustain the full benefits” of the COVID-19 vaccine.

But, he stressed, some defense was better than none.

“Let me be clear,” he said. “Doctors say had I not been vaccinated at all, I wouldn’t be here.”

Last October, Cavuto had his first bout with COVID-19 and received death threats after disclosing his diagnosis and urged viewers to get vaccinated.

Cavuto said that this time was a “far, far more serious strand, what doctors call COVID pneumonia” and that he was in the ICU for “quite a while.”

He had asked Fox to keep the illness private because he didn’t want to become the story — but felt he owed viewers an explanation for his prolonged absence. He also appeared to dismiss claims that his hospitalization was due to the vaccine itself, calling that a “grassy knoll theory.”

“Some of you who’ve wanted to put me out of my misery darn near got what you wished for,” he added.

“So, sorry to disappoint you! But no, the vaccine didn’t cause that … My very compromised immune system did.”
