Fox anchor says she's threatened by angry response


NEW YORK (AP) - A Fox News Channel anchor whose reaction to President Donald Trump's comments on Charlottesville spread widely said she feels threatened but not deterred after a flood of angry responses from viewers to her words.

Kat Timpf, of the Fox show "The Specialists," said Wednesday that she's blocked part of her Twitter feed and stopped looking at emails. A day earlier, Timpf called Trump's news conference disgusting and said: "I have too much eye makeup on to cry right now."

Feelings were raw at Fox, the favorite news network for Trump and his supporters, after the president said there was "blame on both sides" for violence at a weekend rally organized by white nationalists.

Timpf said she got chills from one tweet that called her "a disgrace to the white race."
