US Presidential election: Fox News allegedly instructs anchors not to call Biden 'President-elect

Fox News is instructing its anchors not to call Joe Biden the "President-elect" when the network calls the race. 


In two memos obtained by CNN, it was gathered that the management of the network told its anchors to "stay away" from using the description, and instead say something such as Biden has "enough electoral votes to win the presidency". 


The memos emphasized that the network should report moves by Trump's legal teams to challenge the results. One of the memos added;


"We will report both sides until there is further guidance."


This is coming after Trump and his aides called out Fox News for projecting Biden to win Arizona. It was however noted that the network called Trump the "President-elect" the day after the 2016 election.
