Fox News host Shepard Smith slammed President Donald Trump and White House press secretary Sean Spicer on Tuesday for his assertion that the media was ignoring terror attacks.
He said Trump appeared to be echoing “fringe media” like the publications InfoWars and Breitbart.
“In short, the president’s assertion is false,” Smith said. “The White House knows that it was false or could have learned that it was false with a quick Google check, but either did not do so or decided not to tell the truth.”
The Trump administration published a list of 78 terrorist attacks it claimed were under-reported by the media. But the Fox News host said that his network had covered every major terror attack.
“What they’re saying is not true, again,” he quipped, while introducing his guest. “Why bother?”
