Fox News is applying the violent assault of Paul Pelosi to push the GOP campaign speaking points about crime.
Fox News instantaneously plugs the Pelosi dwelling invasion and assault on Paul Pelosi into its GOP speaking points, saying this shows that “crime hits everyone” and “this can take place anyplace, crime is random and that is why it is such a substantial component of this election story.” We’ll see. pic.twitter.com/WfkGZUU7tX

Bill Hemmer mentioned, “You think about crime and how we have been talking about this for the past two years. Lee Zeldin, the Republican candidate here in New York, about a month ago he had a random shooting in his front yard. The point being depending on how the circumstances of the story work out, crime has hit everybody…Point being this can happen anywhere. Crime is random, and that is why it is such a significant part of this election story.”
There actually is no low that Fox News will not sink to.
The reality is that it is unknown why the Pelosi dwelling was broken into and Paul Pelosi was violently assaulted. It could have been a robbery. It could possibly have been a political attack intended against the Speaker of the House and her household.
If the assault on Paul Pelosi was not a random act of crime but was carried about by somebody with political motivations, Fox News will right away cease speaking about it mainly because if it does not match their suitable-wing propaganda narrative, it does not get mentioned on the air.
