Fox News host calls out network for covering false stories about Biden and Harris





Wed, April 28, 2021, 4:04 AM





Co-host of Fox News ’s  The Five , Juan Williams, called out the network on Tuesday for its repeated coverage of two recent stories that turned out to be false. First there was the  false narrative  that part of  President Biden ’s plan to combat climate change involved restricting the amount of red meat Americans could consume. That story was first printed in a British tabloid and in no way resembled anything in Biden’s actual plan. Still, right wing media, pundits and elected officials jumped all over the story, including many on Fox News. Then came the bogus report that  Vice President Harris ’s children’s book,  There Are Heroes Everywhere , was being distributed at a migrant shelter for children. That story was also  completely fabricated . The  New York Post  reporter responsible for the story  resigned  on Tuesday, and claimed she was ordered to write it. In reality, one copy of Harris’s book was given to a child at a shelter, a book that was a one-time donation during a charity drive.




Williams brought up these situations while he and his fellow co-hosts were discussing allegations that former Secretary of State under   President Obama , now Climate Czar   John Kerry , gave Iran classified information about Israel back when he was Secretary of State.

“To me, when you talk about, you know, ‘Oh, is this right wing going after John Kerry? They don’t like John Kerry.’ It just worries me,” Williams said. “Like last week we had the hamburger story. ‘Oh, Biden’s gonna take your hamburger.’ Or, you know, it’s always, ‘Kamala Harris’s book is being given to immigrants.’ These stories are false, but the right wing echo chamber starts going crazy because you can go after a Democrat.”

As for the Kerry story, which is so far unsubstantiated, Williams pointed out that even staunch Republican   Lindsey Graham   is skeptical.

“On this story, I think it’s important that you notice that people like Lindsey Graham, you know, strong Republican voice out of South Carolina, says he doesn’t know whether or not we can trust this so-called tape,” Williams said. “The State Department saying that the timeline is way off."

It's absolutely unreal how some when presented with the truth, the absolute truth, they double-triple-quadruple down on the lies.  

Their are some 'articles' here still spreading the lies.

As you can see here on NT, extremely ignorant.  Every time their lies are pointed out, they double-triple-quadruple down and continue to spread the lies.  There is at least one piece up for days with the lies about John Kerry.

Fox 'news' is known only for spreading lies and disinformation and propaganda and projection.  They are not a valid news source.

Fox 'news' considered entertainment, not news.  

You forgot to say that CNN and MSNBC are 'extreme leftist liberal biased'

Co-host of  Fox News  ’s  The Five , Juan Williams, called out the network on Tuesday for its repeated coverage of two recent stories that turned out to be false.

Juan Williams, the man that self identifies as an Afro-Panamian or the 'black guy with a Spanish name'.

First there was the  false narrative   that part of  President Biden  ’s plan to combat climate change involved restricting the amount of red meat Americans could consume. That story was first printed in a British tabloid and in no way resembled anything in Biden’s actual plan. Still, right wing media, pundits and elected officials jumped all over the story, including many on Fox News.

True.  It was originally "reported" in the Daily Mail, but not as a WILL HAPPEN, but as a possible "could limit".   And depending on what happens with the disaster Biden wants to accomplish with 'green energy', it is still a pollobility or something that "could" happen.

Then came the bogus report that  Vice President Harris  ’s children’s book,  There Are Heroes Everywhere  , was being distributed at a migrant shelter for children. That story was also  completely fabricated  . The  New York Post   reporter responsible for the story  resigned   on Tuesday, and claimed she was ordered to write it. In reality, one copy of Harris’s book was given to a child at a shelter, a book that was a one-time donation during a charity drive.

Well, per the above quoted paragraph, the author of the article might have been "forced" to write it, but it was in fact true.  The last sentence in the "Yahoo Entertainment" indicates that when it quite clearly indicates:  " In reality, one copy of Harris’s book was given to a child at a shelter, a book that was a one-time donation during a charity drive.".   The first sentence does not indicate any particular quantity or at what time.
