    Default Fox News caught trying to pass off GOP operatives as parents "concerned"

    Fox News failed to disclose to their audience that nearly a dozen guests billed as parents panicked by what they misleadingly label critical race theory being taught to their young children in school are also professional Republican operatives, according to a newly released report.

    The liberal media watchdog organization Media Matters for America details how Fox News has repeatedly failed to mention that their guests, who included right-wing media personalities, GOP strategists and conservative think tank staffers, were far from apolitical despite billing them as your average outraged parent.

    And it's not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment

    For example, one of the guests who frequently appeared to rail against critical race theory was a gentleman by the name of Ian Prior, who was billed by the network as a "Loudoun County parent" that went "from [a] concerned parent, like many of you, to legal activist." But below the surface, Prior is a Republican operative with deep GOP political roots. The former Department of Justice spokesperson, Media Matters noted, worked "in top communications roles during the 2016 election cycle" including for "the National Republican Congressional Committee, the Karl Rove-fronted super PAC American Crossroads, and the Senate Leadership Fund, a super PAC that works to elect Republican senators which was founded by allies of Minority Leader Mitch McConnell."

    Another frequent guest to appear on Fox News, Lilet Vanetsyan, turned out to be far from an ordinary parent, as well. Instead of being your average frustrated parent, Vanetsyan is associated with the pro-Trump organization Turning Point USA founded by Charlie Kirk and was a reporter for the right-wing Right Side Broadcasting Network. Fox billed Vanetsyan as a "Fairfax County teacher," despite being a longtime Trump supporter and fervent GOP activist.

    Do you want to know how fake and affected their "concern" is?

    Eight months ago not a single one of these hacks were complaining to teachers or school boards about CRT.

    No problem....there are plenty of parents, teachers, community members who are "legitimately" concerned.....and rightfully so.... as they should be....They don't need the media to make sure this doesn't happen.... or continue.... in their schools...

    On Thursday, The Daily Dot published a report chronicling that when GOP lawmakers on Capitol Hill were pressed on what critical race theory, they had very little idea what they were talking about. Notably, Florida Republican Sen. Rick Scott told the Daily Dot, "there's a lot of people that have a lot of different definitions," pressed further, he added, "I don't think the Republican caucus has a definition."

    Bingo , the mouth breathers cannot tell us what CRT is

    You want fake history taught and children’s spirits to be controlled and stunted

    Which is what I just said....
    What is "fake history"? We never taught that.....and certainly never controlled or stunted their spirit....You've not been in a school since you were in one as a student or had a child in one...very obviously....Have you?
    You should never volunteer to help in one, btw...not with that attitude....

    When the old man gave his sons FNC to 'play' with, they set out to copy the dishonest mainstream media and still keep the Conservative audience.

    I bailed on them a while ago, but still occasionally listen to some of the evening show replays on YouTube.
    The Left will cause Government of the people, by the people, for the people, to perish from the Earth.

    Trump is mankind's last hope to preserve Liberty.

    Fox would never do that.
    Once in a while you get shown the light, in the strangest of places if you look at it right.

    Fox disagrees. They are pounding on CRT every day. The right is super concerned. They want only the white side taught. If you were a teacher you should be alarmed by the rewriting of history whitewashing slavery.
