Representative for George Soros Patrick Gaspard said Sunday that Fox News refuses to book Soros on its shows, despite using him as an almost-daily subject of attacks and criticism.

Fox News did not immediately respond to TPM’s request for comment.

“Fox News has had the opportunity to have us come on to rebut some of the outrageous claims being made and refuse to have us on,” Gaspard said to CNN’s Brian Stelter. “My colleagues have reached out to say ‘you had anti-Semites on Lou Dobbs’ show saying the most reprehensible things about George Soros. Let us rebut it.’ Nothing.”

The Fox Business Network recently was forced to ban a guest after an episode of Dobbs’ show during which he called the State Department “Soros-occupied” and accused Soros of somehow funding the immigrants from Central America.

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) offered a rejoinder to the backlash from the comments a few days later, saying that “it’s not anti-Semitic to criticize George Soros.” Gohmert has also floated the idea that Soros is funding the migrants on Fox News previously.
