Now that their lord and Master Trump has disinvited the Eagles to the White House, Pravda, I mean Fox News is going to extreme lengths to justify it.  They are showing Eagles  players who are Christians praying while explaining the kneeling controversy to their moron viewers.   They don’t disclose that these were players praying before and after games and NOT during the anthem. No Eagles player kneeled.  So the moron viewers now believe players like Zach Ertz kneeled during the anthem.  Fox will do anything to suck Trump’s dick.  A joke.

Update - Pravda issued the following on Twitter

UPDATE: Fox News has apologized. “During our report about President Trump canceling the Philadelphia Eagles’ trip to the White House to celebrate their Super Bowl win, we showed unrelated footage of players kneeling in prayer,” said Christopher Wallace, Executive Producer of Fox News @ Night with Shannon Bream in a statement. “To clarify, no members of the team knelt in protest during the national anthem throughout regular or post-season last year. We apologize for the error.”

Of course, they won't do so on TV. They know their moronic, senile, idiot viewers for the most part don't have Twitter. What a complete joke. Fair and balanced!

The retraction never quite gets the same publicity as the original story. Very convenient.  Waiting for KGB to defend this, most likely by starting with “But CNN...”

Zach Ertz who is one of the Christians on the team (and probably WAS a Trump guy) cannot believe his likeness was used to convey that he was kneeling during the anthem. A quick check of Twitter shows that the Trumpers jumped all over that and turned him into the new Kaep. Yea, this POTUS and Fox News are just good old fashioned hard workin peoples.

Look, I am not reflexively against him.  When I agree I say so.  However, this is 3rd rate propaganda.

The funny thing is, I know FOX News got the idea for this from a misleading meme that was being spread on liberal Facebook pages earlier in the day.  In that one, it accused conservatives of supporting Tim Tebow for kneeling during the anthem to protest legal abortion, and included a picture of him doing so (of course the pic was of him praying, and not during the anthem).  Despite how absolutely crazy that claim was, and the fact that anyone who hasn't been living under a rock the past 5 years knows this isn't true (because every move of Tebow's was scrutinized beyond belief), this was shared repeatedly and taken as gospel by the HuffPo and Slate contingent.  I actually saw some of my liberal friends who work in sports shout down hysterical people and tell them to stop making their side look bad because this was completely made up.  And they were called Trump supporters.  lol 

So I imagine this was the conservatives fighting fake news with fake news because no one has any integrity anymore.  Of course Fox News should still be held to a higher standard than bloggers on Facebook.

Given your feelings on flag protests and fake news, I thought you'd have an opinion.

Not trying to bait you, but what's my opinion on the flag protests?  One reason I'm asking is that I just perused my posting history and I didn't see where I'd said anything about it.  Maybe I missed it, though.
