President Donald Trump offered yet another criticism against Fox News, and Neil Cavuto responded with a scathing rejection of his claims.
The Fox News host replied to the president at the end of his show on Thursday.
"Alright well, I think the president watches Fox. I also think he is getting sick of Fox. Which is weird becuase I think he gets pretty fair coverage at Fox," said Cavuto.
"But the president making clear to fact-check him is to be all but dead to him and his legion of supporters who let me know in no uncertain terms I am either with him totally or I am a Never-Trumper bully," he continued.
"There are no grays. No middle grounds. You are either all in or you're just out. Loyal on everything or not to be trusted on anything," he explained.
Cavuto addressed a tweet that the president lobbed at the cable news channel.

"First of all, Mr. President, we don't work for you," Cavuto continued.
"I don't work for you. My job is to cover you, not fawn over you or rip you, just cover you. Call balls and strikes. Our job is to keep score, not settle scores," he explained.
"You are right for a media isn't fair to you. That they are more inclined to report the bad than anything good about you so it's no surprise you are frustrated that more aren't in line with you — that everyone at Fox might not be in lockstep with you," Cavuto said.
"Hard as it is to fathom, Mr. President, just because you're the leader of the free world it doesn't entitle you to a free pass," he said.
"Unfortunately, just a free press," he concluded.
