Fox hypes bogus FBI ‘secret society’ dozens of times — then goes silent after it’s revealed as a joke

Published

on

Fox News on Thursday ceased discussion about an alleged anti-Trump “secret society” in the FBI after the notion was revealed as a joke.

According to TV Eyes, Fox News made 90 mentions of the so-called “secret society” in January. The network and GOP guests alleged that text message showed that FBI agents were out to get President Donald Trump.

However, text messages obtained by ABC News on Wednesday suggested that FBI agents were joking when they used the term “secret society.”

But that report was never mentioned by Fox News and there is no record of a clarification from the conservative network.

Media Matters’ Lis Power counted 20 mentions of “secret society” just on the Tuesday and Wednesday editions Fox & Friends, widely considered to be Trump’s favorite morning show.

By then, the coronavirus crisis was already underway."

Even Trump criticizes Mike Pence’s answer about why the administration won’t open Obamacare exchanges

Published

on

At Wednesday's coronavirus task force press briefing, reporters asked Vice President Mike Pence to justify why the administration is refusing to reopen the Affordable Care Act insurance marketplaces for a special enrollment period in response to the pandemic — and the vice president's answer was so evasive and unhelpful that even President Donald Trump teased him for it.

Pence replied that he was working with insurance companies to eliminate copays for coronavirus-related treatment — which doesn't help people who have no coverage and can't enroll because the administration hasn't authorized enrollment.
