GOP congressmen speak to Fox News (screen grab)

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.

"I wonder how many people are ready for just how bad the next six weeks plus are going to be," Krugman wrote on Twitter. "This is going to be the most dangerous election since 1860, with substantial odds that America as we know it will be damaged or even destroyed."

Trump’s campaign ‘is discussing contingency plans to bypass election results’ and keep him in power: report

Published

on

A startling new report from The Atlantic claims that President Donald Trump's campaign is discussing truly radical measures aimed at keeping him in power even if he loses the 2020 presidential election.
