Fox News “is becoming its own worst nightmare,” CNN’s Brianna Keilar declared on Tuesday as she picked aside the most recent spherical of lies and conspiracy theories being pushed by personalities on the conservative community.
“Completely predictable,” Keilar stated, breaking down Fox’s components as, “Worship Trump, blame Democrats, spotlight fear. Rinse, lather, repeat.”
Keilar highlighted one specific falsehood unfold by its hosts — that supporters of former President Donald Trump “spontaneously” gathered to cheer his passing motorcade on Monday. The occasion was organized beforehand.
“These lies aren’t harmless,” stated Keilar. “They’re part of the bigger lie about what is true and what isn’t. They’re dividing a nation. They’re dividing families.”
The personalities are “pushing lies and conspiracy theories, disguised as patriotism and traditional American values,” she added. “When really they are just homewreckers, who wouldn’t offer up the truth if it landed in their snake oil.”
