The American people need a fair and unbiased media now more than ever.
They thought they could count on Fox News to provide that credible source of information.
But Donald Trump just shut down Fox News with one brutal truth.
During a recent White House press briefing Fox News White House correspondent John Roberts brought up the debunked story that Donald Trump disbanded the National Security Council’s pandemic response team.
This story was floated by former Obama acolytes and lapped up by sympathetic fake news reporters.
“That turned out to be a false story . . . what are you working for, CNN?” Trump shot back at Roberts after Roberts asked his questions.
“No, no, no, no,” Roberts replied, “I’m pointing out what they have said and what you have said.”
The President wasn’t having any of it.
“You know that’s a false story, what you just said was a false story . . . you shouldn’t be repeating a story that you know is false,” Trump responded.
Roberts and everyone in the press knew the story that Donald Trump “closed” the office pandemic response is false, but reporters still promote it because they think the public doesn’t know any better.
Former National Security Council staffer Tim Morrison – who the fake news loved when he testified in the impeachment proceeding – wrote an op-ed in the Washington Post explaining that the pandemic response office was folded in to a nonproliferation and biodefense directorate as part of the Trump administration streamlining a bloated National Security Council.
“One such move at the NSC was to create the counterproliferation and biodefense directorate, which was the result of consolidating three directorates into one, given the obvious overlap between arms control and nonproliferation, weapons of mass destruction terrorism, and global health and biodefense. It is this reorganization that critics have misconstrued or intentionally misrepresented. If anything, the combined directorate was stronger because related expertise could be commingled,” Morrison wrote.
The American people expect better from Fox News. They expect reporters to stick to the facts and not get carried away with fake news narratives.
