Biden Trashes Fox News Hack for ‘Garbage’ Question About Immigrant Children

President Biden announced on Wednesday that children 5-11 can begin receiving the vaccination for COVID-19. It’s a significant step toward protecting all Americans and restoring some semblance of normalcy as kids return to school.

Fox News, Joe Biden, Fake News

After the announcement, the President took questions from the press. And true to form, Fox News’ White Correspondent, Peter Doocy, managed to swerve so far off course he ended up in a landfill in another county. The exchange began with Biden having a little fun at Doocy’s expense, saying “This ought to be good,” as he called on him. And then they engaged in the following exchange:

Doocy: About the way forward, Mr. President, as you were leaving for your overseas trip there were reports that were surfacing that your administration is planning to pay illegal immigrants who were separated from their families at the border up to $450,000 each, possibly $1 million per family. Do you think that that might incentivize more people to come over illegally?
Biden: If you guys keep sending that garbage out, yeah. But it’s not true.
Doocy: So this is a garbage report?
Biden: Yeah. $450,000 per person, is that what you are saying?
Doocy: That were separated from a family member under the last administration.
Biden: That’s not going to happen.

It’s curious that Doocy would even bring up the subject of how Donald Trump enacted policies that resulted in more than 5,600 children being ripped from their parents with no process in place to keep track of them or to reunite the families. It’s a crime against humanity that was designed purposefully to punish innocent babies.

Biden’s response characterized Doocy’s question perfectly. It is a “garbage” assertion to raise the matter of compensation for the families that were harmed without acknowledging that such compensation would only be paid as the result of litigation or settlement by the victimized parties.

Biden could have been more clear about that in his response, but he was likely more interested in preventing Doocy’s false premise from becoming perceived as factual. The truth is that

“Thousands of migrant parents and children separated from each other at the U.S. border by Trump administration policies may soon be eligible for hundreds of thousands of dollars per person in compensation, according to three sources familiar with ongoing negotiations in a lawsuit brought on behalf of separated families.” […]

“The talks are part of negotiations between the Justice Department and lawyers representing the separated families in a number of tort cases that have claimed the families experienced harm when they were forcibly separated.”

There hasn’t been any dollar amount agreed to. However, if/when there is, it will surely far less than the potential judgment awarded should the matter go to trial. So the Biden administration’s solution will undoubtedly save hundreds of millions of dollars, while still having the decency to provide compensation so that the families can heal.

Biden’s response also noted the ludicrous suggestion that any compensation “might incentivize more people to come over illegally.” Doocy knows that the only people who would be eligible for compensation are those whose families were torn apart by Trump’s sadistic policies. So he seems to think that having your family destroyed would be appealing to migrants who are fleeing the poverty and violence that was traumatizing them in their home countries.

Fox News and Republicans have been at the forefront of encouraging migrants to come to the U.S. They have repeatedly advertised the fallacy of “open borders” with the intention that it draw migrants whom they they could then condemn for coming here.

So while the Biden administration is discouraging people from coming to the U.S., Fox News is making it sound like they will get free entry and cash bonuses for doing so. And all of this so that they can blame Biden because the migrants believed what Fox News told them. If anyone should be paying compensation it’s Fox News.

Newsmax and OAN Added to Smartmatic’s Billion Dollar Lawsuit for Pushing Trump’s ‘Big Lie’

The fallout from Donald Trump’s relentless crusade to spin his humiliating loss to Joe Biden as a “rigged” election continues to deliver consequences to those aiding and abetting its dissemination. It has already resulted in a multibillion dollar defamation lawsuit by Dominion Voting Systems against Fox News, Trump attorneys Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell, as well as Mike Lindell, the infamous MyPillow Guy.

Donald Trump, Fox News, Fake

Dominion’s lawsuit wasn’t the only one seeking to hold Trump’s “Big Lie” spreaders accountable for their reckless slander. Earlier this year Smartmatic, a voting software company, filed a similar lawsuit against Fox News, along with their accomplices Lou Dobbs, Maria Bartiromo, and Jeanine Pirro. Their filing is a thrilling must read that outlines the depravity Fox & Company. And now Smartmatic has invited more guests to their legal party. CNN is reporting that Smartmatic “is now adding Newsmax and One America News Network to the list of defendants.” Their filing charges that…

“Despite claims to provide viewers with honest, unbiased reporting, these outlets victimized Smartmatic by spreading false information about the company following last year’s election, all in their efforts to increase viewership and revenue.” [and that…]

“The lawsuit charged that Newsmax ‘published dozens of reports indicating that Smartmatic participated in a criminal conspiracy to rig and steal the 2020 U.S. election and that its technology and software were used to switch votes from former President Trump to now President Biden.'” [and that…]

“The first time it happened could be a mistake. The second, third, fourth and fiftieth times it happened were intentional choices,” the lawyers wrote. “OANN had every opportunity to do the right thing after the 2020 election for President and Vice President of the United States. It could have reported the truth. Instead, OANN chose to do the wrong thing every time. It reported a lie.”

There has been some blowback suffered by the “Big Lie” propagandists. Fox News has had to alter their programming to avoid further legal liability. And also here. Trump’s lead libelist, Rudy Giuliani, has been banned from Fox News. Nevertheless, Trump is still trying to bully Fox into reporting his election falsehoods. Meanwhile, Trump is slobbering all over OAN for sucking up to him:

“You guys are amazing,” he drooled. “So many people are watching what you’re doing. The election fraud of 2020 is the single biggest thing they want to watch, and other networks don’t put it on because they’re afraid to put it on.”

However, even OAN has exhibited some nervousness about stepping out too far onto Trump’s limp limb. In February they ran a hysterical disclaimer prior to airing a crockumentary by Lindell that promised to provide “Absolute Proof” of voter fraud (It didn’t).

It will be interesting to see how they behave now that Smartmatic has named them in their lawsuit. But we can easily predict how Trump will behave. He has always been – and is now – incapable of rising above his infantile and hostile tendencies. So, unfortunately, it will be more of the same going forward. And hopefully the future will see Trump himself added to the list of defendants.
