Joe Scarborough: Fox News Actively Engaging In Fear-Mongering, Lying and Racism to Support Trump

Joe Scarborough: Fox News Actively Engaging In Fear-Mongering, Lying and Racism to Support Trump

by Colby Hall | Oct 30th, 2018, 7:09 am

Joe Scarborough called out Fox News and it’s curious obsession with a caravan of immigrants currently based at the Mexico-Guatemala border.

After a discussion in which Trump again doubled down on the use of the term “nationalism” in an interview with Fox News Laura Ingraham last night, a deflated Mika Brzezinski exasperated surprise that a media arm would be complicit in what she seems to think is a dishonest campaign of misinformation.

Scarborough jumped in, adding “the problem here is not only is the media arm complicit, not only is Congress complicit, they are actively engaging in the fear-mongering and the lying and the hatred and the racism.”

“When you talk about the others bringing smallpox to America, when it was eradicated in 1980, when you’re talking about bringing leprosy to the United States by a caravan that is not even going to exist by the time it gets to the United States if what happened in April happens, as well,” Scarborough added.

He then questioned the fiduciary responsibilities of News Corp investors, saying “They are spreading this racist lie. Think about this. If you’re a stockholder of a certain media company, the stock that you are holding actually puts you in ownership with a media company that is spreading white nationalist lies, lies about leprosy, lies about smallpox, lies about the others inviting the United States of America.”

1. So What Elise is New, Joe? Fox Has Been Engaged in Spreading RW Extremist Propaganda for Years

It's getting very late in the game.

5. Fox News is no doubt 100% complicit in the Russian treason scandal.

Shit, they probably helped orchestrate it.
