Ahead of an interview at the White House with President Trump, Stuart Varney said Wednesday on "Fox & Friends" the media continually ignores positive economic news. 

He noted that on CNN, MSNBC and the broadcast evening news shows, viewers saw heavy coverage of last week's stock market plunge.

But Steve Doocy pointed out that when the markets rebounded on Tuesday, NBC, ABC and CBS did not mention it in their evening news broadcasts.

The "Varney & Co." anchor said this has been a persistent pattern with the mainstream media, dinging the networks for failing to focus attention on the record 7.1 million job openings.

"It's a long-playing record. If it's something positive about Mr. Trump or the economy, forget it. If it's something negative, they play that in the headlines all day long. ... The media really isn't doing its job," he said, likening the lack of coverage to "ignoring the day-to-day reality" of many Americans.

Speaking to Varney at the White House later in the morning, the president agreed with the assessment. 

Varney, a naturalized U.S. citizen from Great Britain, reflected on getting to interview the president at the White House. 

"It's an enormous privilege and I'm flattered," he said.
