Above is the headline of an untruthful smear on the New York Times by Fox News that remains on its website today, even after being notified of the falsehood. This is nothing less than an effort to destroy a powerful voice of democracy seen as threatening Dear Leader Donald Trump.
In case you missed it, Fox & Friends ran a misleading story claiming that that reporting by the New York Times allowed an ISIS leader to escape. Fox’s favorite fan, Trump, picked up on the falsehood and tweeted about it. Because Trump, apparently, only believes in being skeptical when it’s our country’s intelligence agencies reporting on Russia. When it’s a biased news organization attacking another American institution, what’s not to trust?

The Times objected and demanded an apology. But Fox News has only provided an “update.”
Media Matters explains:
The Times later sent a letter to the show, which has a history of botched reporting, criticizing the “little regard it has for reporting facts” and demanding “an on-air apology.” The response noted that the information in question had been announced by the Pentagon weeks before the report ran and that the Pentagon had “no objections” to the report when it was published. Doocy did not apologize and relayed only parts of the Times’ statement, but acknowledged the “update” and pointed viewers to Fox News’ website if “you want to read the entire statement.” From the July 24 edition of Fox News’ Fox & Friends:
Online, Fox merely reported the Times’ statement. As show above, the headline for the video still suggests the Times committed treason.
The fact that Fox is not standing by its reporting is tantamount to an admission of guilt. But its failure to admit it made a mistake is more than just another example of Fox’s blatant partisanship.
It’s terrifying proof that Fox is a willing partner in Trump’s efforts to destroy his opposition by deliberately undercutting democracy.
In other words, it’s Fox News that is behaving in an anti-American fashion and nobody should let them pretend otherwise.
Watch Fox’s shameful reporting and Fox host Steve Doocy’s even more shameful “update” below, from the July 22, 2017 and July 24, 2017 Fox & Friends, respectively.
As I’ve pointed out in the past, Catherine Herridge is a fake news propagandist who was a lead reporter on #Benghazi! Her #Benghazi! fake news has been repeatedly debunked. She’s also behind the fake news October FBI surprise crushing Hillary’s campaign. If Catherine Herridge says it’s going to be sunny today carry an umbrella.
The masses can fight the Foxies by going on talk radio and reminding all the masses of the sexual harassment and discrimination lawsuits against them.
The suits are trying their hardest to try to bury these lawsuits. Keep on it the front burner. Remind the global community of the sexual predators that worked at 21st Century Fox.
This is a demonic network run by evil people. May it tank to fifth place in the ratings.
Wow, I guess Drywall has no problem with treason then. Good, duly noted.
Soooo…you’re saying that that Fox claim is true?
It’s not, but apparently the TRUTH means absolutely nothing to the moronic trump supporters.
I believe Mark Levine’s current PR effort is “Americanism vs. Progressivism”, which is a tell that the right is realizing that they must turn the tables on the fact that they are condoning Trump campaign behavior that at least borders on treason. The email is there. Trump Jr.’s collaborative advice about “especially later in the summer” is a blunt fact. It takes a toxic amount of propaganda to counter that, like associating the New York Times or Progressivism with the most extreme anti-Americanism, viz. ISIS. This is as crude as propaganda gets.
It’s more terrifying how the CNN/NYT/MSM complex is trying to take down a duly elected president.
