Fox News ‘wants to scare white people’ by pushing ‘a disinfo campaign from white nationalists’: report

Published

on

Fox News was blasted by one of the network’s former reporters for running a disinformation campaign from “white nationalists” as cities across the country deal with crises of civil unrest.

On Tuesday, Fox News ran a story from a single government source alleging Antifa would be causing mayhem in the suburbs.

“Agitators behind the rioting that has paralyzed the country over the past week want to move into more suburban areas, a government intelligence source has told Fox News,” Hollie McKay reported for the network. “Much of the worry stems from the notion that many in well-armed, suburban, and rural neighborhoods won’t hesitate to exercise their Second Amendment rights and elevated anxieties could lead to heavy confrontation. ‘Antifa knows this,” said the source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity. “Local and state authorities have to get a grip on this because if it moves to the suburbs, more people will die.'”

NBC News reporter Brandy Zadrozny blasted the report.

“I used to work at Fox News so I understand the ethical gymnastics that go on there but this is going to give me a heart attack,” she posted on Twitter.

“One source. Unnamed. With literally zero evidence. To claim antifa is ‘coming to the suburbs.’ This is beyond,” Zadrozny explained.

“This article is a chain letter. It’s a disinfo campaign from white nationalists. Fox News wants to scare white people into believing that black, brown, and radical people are coming for them,” she wrote. “It’s ludicrous. It’s dangerous.”

“They should be ashamed,” she added.

These 7 details from the damning Sharpiegate report show it was a dark omen of Trump’s destructive potential

Published

on

While it was dismissed by some as an overhyped media obsession, the presidential scandal that has come to be known as "Sharpiegate" was, in fact, an early warning sign of the truly catastrophic potential of Donald Trump.

The story arose out of Hurricane Dorian, which began its deliberate march up toward the East Coast of the United States in late August and early September of 2019. It ravaged the Bahamas, and officials feared the damage it could inflict stateside. But then came a Trump tweet on Sept. 1, and later comments to reporters, in which he warned that Alabama was in the storm's path. He said it was among the states "most likely be hit (much) harder than anticipated."

"The data, which for the first time breaks down the number of people in the hospital with coronavirus, was promised by the state two weeks ago," the report explained.

MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace asks why Bill Barr is trying to ‘erase Robert Mueller’s investigation’ before November

Published

on

MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace returned to television Friday night to address what she called outright corruption in the Trump White House after another example of the president trying to escape the consequences of the law.

Wallace began by calling Attorney General William Barr nothing more than Trump's "bouncer."

"He has been intellectually overestimated from day one. He is not a mastermind of anything," said Wallace. "He is Donald Trump's body man."

She cited "well-sourced spin" coming from the White House Friday evening, because there were people that she said were "enlisted" with trying to talk Trump out of commuting Roger Stone's sentence. She anticipated that Barr and White House Counsel Pat Cipollone may huff and puff about the act, but that they won't quit over it. "And we should remember their names forever. They are all accomplices in the greatest corruption of one of the most sacred powers."
