Fox News and Trump aide mocked for using a conservative reporter’s sarcasm to claim liberals attacked Vince Vaughn

Published

on

Fox News and White House press aide Hogan Gidley got their facts wrong yet again.

It all began with a conspiracy theory Tuesday that liberals were trying to “get Vince Vaughn canceled.” Conservatives raged about “cancel culture,” which advocates punishing those they disagree with by getting them fired or their shows canceled.

The problem, however, is that the so-called “liberal” who Gidley and Fox are using as an example of the attack on Vaughn was a conservative Washington Examiner reporter, who was joking. To make matters worse, Vaugh’s latest appearance in a television show was “F is for Family.” He hasn’t been on the show since 2018.

As Vox reporter Aaron Rupar pointed out, the network was so desperate to gin up outrage they didn’t seem to account for sarcasm in tweets.

“Fox News is so dense they don’t realize the one tweet they keep using to smear the hysterical libs was posted sarcastically by a Washington Examiner staffer. Beyond parody,” tweeted Rupar.

"No matter how many times public health officials, especially like Anthony Fauci, speak the truth, what does it do, Doctor, when the president continues to lie to the public in face of a public health crisis?" asked anchor Kate Bolduan.

"This is gaslighting on an enormous scale, and means until people eventually get sick or their family members get sick, the communities hit hard, they won't believe it, and then it will be too late," said Grounder. "The problem is there's a lag period from the time that somebody's infected and starts to develop symptoms a couple days later. We don't see people get severely sick and need to be hospitalized and in ICUs until a week into disease, and talking about probably one to two weeks of lag time from the time somebody's exposed at least before you start to see hospitalizations and then another couple weeks before you start to see deaths."
