Republican Rep. Dan Bishop Slams Fox For False Report he Will Resign If McCarthy Becomes Speaker

On Thursday, Republican North Carolina Rep. Dan Bishop reportedly chastised Fox News for posting a “incorrect” report on Bishop’s prior statements.

The item quoted an interview published in Roll Call in which Bishop stated that if no adjustments were made, he would not remain in Congress permanently.

Fox’s original title on the article was “GOP holdout Dan Bishop says he will resign if bid to stop McCarthy fails.”

Fox was later forced to change the title to “GOP holdout Dan Bishop denies claiming he’ll resign if bid to stop McCarthy fails.”

Bishop’s communications director Allie McCandless slammed the organization for what she claimed was “purposefully misconstruing” the quote in question.

On Thursday, the House failed to pick a speaker for the seventh time, with a handful of Republicans standing hard in their opposition to California Rep. Kevin McCarthy.

Opponents have gathered around a variety of champions, first with Arizona Rep. Andy Biggs, then Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan, and finally Florida Rep. Byron Donalds.
