It has been nearly a year since the Republican Party assumed their razor-thin (and shrinking) majority in the House of Representatives. In all of that time they have vigorously avoided and/or opposed any legislation that would actually have a positive effect on the lives of the American people.
Instead, the GOP has been laser-focused on partisan political stunts and brazenly dishonest attacks on President Biden and other Democrats. They have held dozens of hearings intended to expose alleged Biden improprieties, but in every case their own witnesses testified that Biden was beyond reproach. It got so humiliating for Republicans that James Comer, chairman of the House Oversight Committee, now refuses to hold any more public hearings.
Nevertheless, the GOP is continuing their crusade against Biden and is pursuing a formal impeachment inquiry, despite not having a shred of evidence of any wrongdoing. And it isn’t just Democrats and liberals saying that. On Friday morning Peter Doocy, the notoriously biased Fox News White House correspondent, appeared on the network to report on the GOP’s plan to vote on an impeachment inquiry next week. However, Doocy detoured to some unexpected honesty from him regarding the matter…
“The House Oversight Committee has been at this for years, and they have so far not been able to provide any concrete evidence that Joe Biden personally profited from his son Hunter’s overseas business. But they are gonna try again with this impeachment inquiry that’s set to start next week.”

That’s right. Doocy is affirmatively refuting the Republicans who have been making innumerable appearances on Fox News insisting that they have irrefutable evidence of Biden’s guilt. Never mind that each time they present it, it is quickly and easily debunked as nonsense and lies. And the chief liar for the GOP is their new Speaker, Mike Johnson…
It’s remarkable that Fox News allows Republicans on the air to openly lie about matters that are conclusively contradicted by their own reporters. And it’s interesting to note that in this case it isn’t even the first time. Peter Doocy’s father, Fox and Friends co-host Steve Doocy, has also disputed the GOP’s arguments against Biden…
This, however, is standard operating procedure for Fox News. They have never cared much for facts. And they aren’t shy about shaming their own “journalists” in order to advance their MAGA propaganda agenda. Consequently, there are many examples of Fox’s right-wing hosts and guests disseminating falsehoods that contradict news reporting that aired sometimes minutes before. Because on Fox News, spreading partisan fiction always trumps the truth.
