Fox News appears to be brushing off President Trump’s criticism from Sunday night. The network did not appear to make any mention of the president’s numerous tweets condemning the outlet during yesterday’s coverage. Fox News also chose not to cover the story on their website yesterday.

Strangely, the story hasn’t received much coverage from any of the 24-hour news networks. Considering President Trump denounced multiple Fox News personalities by name, perhaps other networks are worried that coverage of the event might encourage the president to conduct similar attacks in the future.

Although President Trump routinely lashes out at the media, Fox News is rarely the target. The relationship between Trump and Fox News was quite a bit bumpier during his 2016 campaign than it has been during his presidency. Trump was engaged in a lengthy public feud with Megyn Kelly during the 2016 primaries and attacked the network itself multiple times during his presidential campaign.

In one 2016 tweet, President Trump wrote, “Fox News is so biased it is disgusting. They do not want Trump to win. All negative!”

Regardless of past conflict, it still seems unusual to hear President Trump hit Fox News so hard. It’s likely the network will wait until Media Buzz, Howard Kurtz’s Sunday program, to address the conflict. Kurtz generally handles negative stories involving the network, including the scandals connected to former CEO Roger Ailes and former anchor Bill O’Reilly.

Here are all of President Trump’s tweets from Sunday evening attacking Fox News:
