Anatomy of a faux scandal: Right-wing media uses misleading local story to suggest coronavirus cover-up


Let me walk you through what happened: On Wednesday, Fox 17 in Nashville, a Sinclair-owned station, published what sounded like an explosive report. It essentially suggested that city officials did not disclose the info so that they could justify keeping local businesses shut down. The crux of the story was simply not true...Fox 17 left out crucial contextThe Fox 17 story was grossly misleading. For some unknown reason, Fox 17 did not include any of this in the text of its initial story. Carlson then read during the segment the same out-of-context clips from the emails emails Fox 17 had printed.
