Even Fox News Isn’t Buying Trump’s Claim Networks Don’t Cover Terrorist Attacks
Fox News’ Bill Hemmer didn’t buy the Trump administration’s claims about the media coverage on terrorism and said,"Others like Paris and Nice and Orlando and San Bernardino. They got a lot of coverage. I was in Nice and Orlando. What is to suggest they were not given ample coverage here?"
Trump senior adviser Kellyanne Conway replied, "But what the president I believe is saying, Bill, is that the ones you are pointing out, we had a high number of casualties, of course got international coverage and wall-to-wall coverage as well they should have."
She was forced to admit the media was covering terrorist attacks after all.
She continued, "The rest of the list you’re correct. Some you hadn’t been aware of and you are a news guy so it tells you we’re becoming inured to some of these attacks that don’t thank god, lead to mass casualties, but still don’t get the attention."
That’s flat out false. The press and every ordinary American is not inured to terrorism. "Alternative facts" rule!
The Trump administration is trying to shift today’s narrative away from their own ineptitude and onto a false claim to smear the media.
They should admit Trump wants the media to become Terror TV, 24/7 which it becomes after every major attack.
