Warning: Fox News’ Pride messaging may cause you to question the very fabric of existence, because nothing this blatantly hypocritical could exist within the laws of physics.
Of course, if anyone could do it, it’s the network that promoted anti-vax conspiracy theories while requiring its employees to be fully vaccinated.
Media Matters recently shared a clip of Fox News celebrating “America Together: LGBTQ+ Pride Month,” followed by recent examples of its hosts attacking the LGBTQ community.
“Celebrate Pride Month with Fox News,” a voice says. “Meet important voices of the LGBTQ+ community and go inside their incredible contributions.”
Then the video cuts to Fox personalities attacking queer people, from general “groomer” hysteria to repeatedly misgendering transgender swimmer Lia Thomas.
