when obama told him mitt romney, the 19 80s are calling to ask for their foreign policy back when romney called russia a serious threat and obama's former national intelligence director james clapper admitting the former president should have been tougher on russia after the 2014 annexation of crimea. a college freshman calls out sean misleading coverage right to liberal host brian selter's face. listen to this. >> cnn in particular seem to go one direction, are we expected to believe this is all some sort of random consequence or something else mind it? >> too bad, time for lunch. >> carley: joe concha joins us now, joe, this seminar is quite the event. you saw brian there and he had no answer for it.
>> joe: for a conference tackling disinformation, there is a ton of disinformation being shuffled out and -- after christopher phillips, i had a younger brother, he would look like christopher phillips, points all the things they got wrong. collusion, jussie smollett, clearing brett kavanaugh as a rapist, the campaign against another teenager calling the hunter story russian disinformation, the cnn media guy answers by saying everything was a popular right wing narrative about cnn, and proceeds not to answer any points phillips made. here is what he had to say, we know this is a classic example of the right wing media machine,
unquote. no apology for that. christopher phillips tweeted, if sean unbiassed, why is every mistake they make an overstep against republicans? wow, i've heard that before on this show, i think. kudos to christopher philips and in this case, the cnn media guy was trending last night, on twitter for all the wrong reasons, guys. >> ashley: we spoke to the university press -- >> these peep compel to university events expecting no -- feel threatened. >> they are probably 18 or 19 years old and they are pressing
these peep and he will calling them out. i'm impressed, guys, daniel schmidt, he was on in like the 3:00 hour, in college i was just starting to go out. he looked sprie and sober, guys like -- people pretending to go to the event and get t-ball and baseball challenges. good for him to challenge these folkss. and that is not the case. >> carley: we want to talk about one of the biggest tv events happening right now is the masters and tiger wood system back after nearly losing a leg, just 14 months ago. you have thoughts on this, what are they? >> joe: there is three guys, when you watch a sporting event,
they make you stop and watch if you were not otherwise watch that sporting event. that is tiger woods, and people otherwise wouldn't have known the masters were on. lowest rating event was last year when tiger didn't play. highest rates of past 25 years occurred when tiger woods won, no one can change membership, he was in an being and now he is competing under par in striking distance of the leadirs. >> carley: this is tiger's 24th masters appearance, this one feels more important. have a great one, joe, see you monday. >> carley: opening day in the books for a number of major
league teams and it will not a good start for the defending champion atlanta prafs who dropss to the the rookie delivering the final blow of fittingly on national beard day, love that and this saturday, the >> ainsley: make their season debut against boston red sox long-time rivals go head-to-head in the bronzex at 4 p.m. eastern time on fox. house republicans are putting big tech on notice for censoring the hunter laptop story and more members of the biden family are under the microscope. nancy mace sits on house oversight committee who promises to investigate. she wants hunter to testify, we'll be asking her about that next. >> and black lives matter may

letter to the tech giant. >> brooke: good morning, republicans on the caucus are tearing into twitter ceo for suppressing the hunter biden laptop story ahead of the 2020 election. the letter reads, "the laptop contained damming e-mails showing how he exploited his connections to further his career. twitter blocked the article, big tech played a role in swaying the outcome of the 2020 election and we are hearing from jack maxey who gave hunter biden's to -- black suvs started showing up after he leaked data to the daily mail, who landed this exclusive interview, listen. >> we found 450 giga byte of

>> congresswoman, good morning, you sit on the oversight committee, which has jurisdiction over the hunter biden saga. if republicans take back the house come midterm election, what happens? >> i believe you will see hunter biden subpoenaed before the oversight committee and if he doesn't show up, he will hold him in contempt, like we should to everyone else. when talking about election interference by mainstream media to burr thestory, not allow the "new york post" story to be shared on twitter and other social media platform system problem at and i can we should be bring nothing tech companies to talk about the election interference that happend and how folks were targeted or information was targeted and disinformation or bearing of information was allowed to happen on their plate forms.
>> do you think traction will force capitol hill to bring this up? it will get to the point, where they can't ignore it. >> it is getting to that point now, hearing about a possible investigation, hearing more coming out about james and biden -- for the banks they were doing business with, particularly china. when you read alleged e-mails, it is clear there is between -- all things should be investigated when we get the majority back, you will see that on oversight. >> carley: hunter and joe biden receives money from the chinese government communist party.
this was a time when hunter biden was significantly in debt. senator chuck grassley has done a lot of investigation, he is worried the business transactions can put the united states in a position where china could be blackmailing them as a result. >> tens of millions of dollars and the oversight committee, we have subpoena power and will have the opportunity, among a number of different issues. i think more information will come to scompliet that will be apparent we need to figure out what is going on, if conflicts of interest happens, put the money in your's -- >> south carolina set to ban biological males from competing

disease control, the cdc and their definition of it is 15 minutes of contact within a set period of time and within six feet. it did not meet that bar. >> the white house doesn't think the kiss on the cheek meets the bar for close contact after pelosi tested positive for covid-19. fox news contributor lara trump joins us now. lara, i'm sure a lot of viewers are pleased with the biden administration lax attitude i'm still wearing a mask on planes, trains, ubers othe messaging is muddled. >> don't believe your lying eyes. even though they kissed on the cheek that does not mean a close end counter. the definition of close as we know is wrong. apparently it is whatever the white house tells us it is. it is so crazy that this is the direction jen psaki went here. i think it would have been very easy for her to say we are just monitoring the president and making sure that he stays
healthy. yet, she felt the need maybe because it was peter doocy, to push back the way that she did. but you are exactly right. i think so many people are frustrated by the fact that all of our lives for two years basically were upended. we had to change the way we did everything and we did -- i'm still i'm getting on a plane today i have to wear a mask the whole time i'm in the airport. we still have rules set for us. but then whenever asked about it we hear this new 15-minute resume. dots covid have a timer. i saw so many people in line asking this maybe this is new we didn't know over the past two years if we weren't kissing someone for 15 minutes we are in the clear. it's all crazy. that's why no one trusts what is coming out of this white house, absolutely ridiculous. even my 2-year-old knows what a close encounter is. that was one right there. >> ashley: no kidding the with the planes and the masks.
>> they need to. >> ashley: the midterms are looming. the bipartisan bill would edges tend title 42 latest sign that moderate democrats are opposing biden's border policies. so obviously when you look at any of the polls going around right now, the border crisis is a huge topic, as well as inflation. it kind of mangs you wonder with the midterms coming up, do they really feel this way or are they just concerned about losing their seat? >> well, i think it's probably the latter, it's kind of nice to see that there is some level of self-preservation still left within the democrat party. at least five democrats are not fully willing to go down with the sinking ship. but, look, title 42 is something that should stay in place. it is not a cure although. it is basically a twig that is holding back this dam from fully breaking. the only thing that would actually curb this problem and make any difference on our southern border at this point is to go back to the trump era
policies. obviously we know this white house is another going to do that. our southern border has been a joke, guys, since the day that joe biden took office. we have seen it last year, there were 2 million encounters. those are the ones we know about. this year is on record to break that in a very big way. so there needs to be direct attention given to the disaster on our southern border. and i guess at least the good news is there are five democrats that are waking up and paying attention but, yes, ashley, i think it is because they see the writing on the wall. they do not want to lose their midterm elections and they know the american people are sick and tired of what we see happening on our southern border. >> ainsley: five cosigned that legislation, at least seven set of democrats have raised concerns with ending title 42. four of them are up for re-election in november. it's funny how that happens. lara, got to leave it there. thank you so much for joining us, we brexit it. happy friday. >> thanks, ladies. >> carley: happy friday. >> you too. >> carley: as we said before,
when it comes to the border it's not just people that are coming into the country, influx of drugs, fentanyl, crisis, everybody says if title 42 ends, it's only going to get worse, certainly a story to watch. >> ashley: everybody is talking about it going to be a story for a long time and going to get worse. >> carley: great to spend the last two hours with you. >> ashley: you too. >> carley: have a great friday. thanks for watching, "fox & friends" starts now. >> move back. >> preparation force a potential nightmare scenario at the southern border are underway right now. >> this is the first administration in history who came in office and unsecured the border. >> this nomination is confirmed. >> president biden and ketanji brown jackson set to give remarks from the white house. >> is there super spreader event. >> at that time the vaccines weren't available. it certainly puts us in a different space. >> ukraine prepared for another
