Basketball legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar on Fox News and fake news:
Fortunately, we have found the elusive source of fake news that Trump and Fox News have been railing against and it turns out to be Fox News and Trump himself. Let’s start with Trump. A fact-check by The Washington Post showed that as of Aug. 22, Trump has made 1,057 false or misleading claims since taking office. His Aug. 22 speech at his rally in Phoenix only added to that tally. He referred to the media as “truly dishonest people,” then proceeded to offer several lies of his own. He said that “very few people showed up” to protest his rally, yet photos show there were thousands. He claimed the news media wouldn’t show the size of the crowd of supporters, but U.S. News & World Report tweeted photos of that crowd. He also told the crowd that TV cameras were being turned off because networks didn’t want to show his speech, even as his speech was being aired live on television and online.
The very people who support Trump and Fox are the very people most endangered by their support.
