President Joe Biden has demonstrated a habit of allowing some inflammatory remarks to leak — but this latest is a direct attack against the most popular cable news channel.
In 2010, he was discussing the Affordable Care Act with former President Barack Obama, “This is a big f***ing deal,” over a hot mic.
In January, he was caught antagonizing Fox News White House Correspondent Peter Doocy by calling him “a stupid son of a b****.”
Now Biden is presiding over a new leak, and it looks bad. According to a leaked remark from upcoming book, he started his vendetta against Fox News well before the Doocy remark.

Last year Biden called Fox News “one of the most destructive forces in the United States,” according to a book preview obtained by CNN.
In one conversation with an unnamed colleague, Biden also reportedly singled out Fox Corporation Chair Rupert Murdoch, privately calling him “the most dangerous man in the world.”
Biden has yet to mention Murdoch in public, according to a review of his public statements by Factba.se.
However, Biden has taken shots at Fox News.
“The vaccine requirements work, and more companies are instituting them,” Biden told Illinois’s business leaders in September. “Even Fox News is requiring them!”
The book, This Will Not Pass: Trump, Biden, and the Battle for America’s Future, will hit shelves on May 3, according to the publisher.
It comes from the minds of Times reporters Alex Burns and Jonathan Martin, 10 years after Martin’s book The End of the Line: Romney vs. Obama: The 34 Days That Decided the Election.

According to the book preview obtained by CNN, the two authors describe Fox News as “torrent of anti-Biden programming, stoking skepticism about vaccines and disseminating wild conspiracy theories about the January 6 attack.”
If the preview is any indication, the book may stand out less for its tired critiques of Fox News than for its revealing details about our president’s private life.
