"“Fox News ... is on a jihad right now on the whole question about whether there’s fairness about this or not."

Appearing on MSNBC's Morning Joe Thursday, veteran news anchor Tom Brokaw charged that Fox News is waging "jihad" against the FBI in an effort to tarnish the investigation into whether or not the Trump campaign colluded with Russia during the 2016 presidential election.

Trump watches Fox News because it “reinforces what he believes,” Brokaw said, noting, however, that Shepard Smith, a Fox anchor willing to call out the Trump administration, was less biased.

“Fox News ... is on a jihad right now on the whole question about whether there’s fairness about this or not,” Brokaw said, referring to the network’s coverage of the Russia probe. “The whole assault is on the institutions.”

Fox News did not respond to a request for comment on Brokaw's statements but did request the story be updated with a pair of tweets from Fox News contributor Katie Pavlich:
