During an interview with Fox News personality Greg Gutfeld, former President Donald Trump insisted that President Joe Biden’s handling of the evacuation from Afghanistan was a “travesty.” He drew spurious connections between Afghanistan and security along the United States-Mexico border.
The job of the anchors on Fox News has never been to accurately report the news. At least not for the last few years.

But the idea of spin has become very difficult in the age of Trump. So the media figures of Fox News, OAN and Newsmax have decided that it’s just easier to gaslight their viewers. It is easier to pretend something never happened rather than defending the indefensible.
"Can I question the historical value of this? It comes off to me as really drab...It's like you won a trip on Wheel of Fortune and it's to Venezuela"

The news that Fox's Greg Gutfeld To Host His Own Comedy Show has caused crisis of confidence. Heretofore Friday Fox Follies treated all of Fox "News" as a meta-comedy/reality show -- a cross between The Colbert Report and the short-lived The Joe Schmo Show. Maybe only Greg Gutfeld is in on the joke.
There's nothing Friday Fox Follies likes least than to repeat a topic from last week because new jokes are hard to find. No matter. When Bill O'Reilly Goes Ballistic On Eric Engberg, David Corn, Calls Bob Schieffer A 'Plagiarist' this reporter must follow the truth, no matter where it goes.
