I didn’t want to comment on the Fox News thing that the media has been going insane over, but there’s a lot going on here that’s really getting on my nerves. For those not familiar, “Fox & Friends” had a discussion about Trump cutting funding to three Central American countries — El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala. Unfortunately, the chyron ran with this:
Whoops. OK, that’s pretty stupid and it’s funny. I can laugh at that. Of course, the left think Fox works for Trump and this is proof of blah, blah, blah…. Look, anyone who has worked an actual job knows stuff like this happens. I’ll go out on a limb and guess that this was some college intern’s screw-up. Does it make Fox look bad? Absolutely. But what did Fox do? They apologized for the error.
I repeat, they apologized for the error.
Think about that for a minute. When was the last time the liberal media apologized for anything? And I’m not talking about a clerical goof like this one. I’m talking about running with blatant lies, over and over again, and refusing to back down when their stories are proven false by insurmountable evidence. What did the liberal media do when these stories were proven false:
- Jussie Smollett hoax: No apology. They doubled down.
- Outlandish Brett Kavanagh claims: No apology. They doubled down.
- Covington High School students: Kids lives were threatened due to lies. No apology. They doubled down.
And these are just a few from the last several months. The hypocrisy is astonishing.
