Fox News has rehired Arnon Mishkin as the “Decision Desk Director.”
This is the man responsible for calling Arizona early in the 2020 presidential election.
Mishkin is a longtime Democrat operative who backed Hillary Clinton in 2016 and donated to Barack Obama’s presidential campaign, Newsmax reports.
Since then, Arizona has been at the center of controversial election audits.
An independent auditing agency called Cyber Ninjas uncovered “significant and undeniable evidence of voter fraud,” President Donald Trump said.
Trump slammed Fox News for rehiring Mishkin.
Now Mishkin will oversee election coverage for the 2022 midterms and 2024 elections.
This information was confirmed by Fox News CEO Suzanne Scott.
“I think it’s terrible they hired him back,” Trump said.
“He made a terrible call. It was a terrible thing to do,” he added.
“When you look at the numbers that came out in the findings from the report … when you look at those numbers, we won Arizona by a lot.”
“We won other states by a lot. It was a rigged election. I think that it’s a disgrace that they hired him back. But that’s the way it is, not like it used to be.”

Fox drew outrage from its viewers when it called Arizona just minutes after polls closed on election night 2020, while still failing to call Florida for Trump, even though voting had closed almost two hours earlier…
The Associated Press reported that a Republican-backed review of the 2020 presidential election in Arizona’s largest county, Maricopa County, came up with a vote tally that would not have altered the outcome.
Trump issued statements claiming the review found widespread fraud. He urged Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich, a Republican vying for his party’s U.S. Senate nomination, to open an investigation.
“Huge findings in Arizona! However, the Fake News Media is already trying to ‘call it’ again for Biden before actually looking at the facts—just like they did in November!” Trump said in a statement released Sept. 24.
“The audit has uncovered significant and undeniable evidence of FRAUD! Until we know how and why this happened, our Elections will never be secure. This is a major criminal event and should be investigated by the Attorney General immediately.”
