Fox News’ Shepard Smith Relentlessly Fact Checks Donald Trump’s Border Wall Address!

Fox News’ Shepard Smith Relentlessly Fact Checks Donald Trump’s Border Wall Address!

"Let me get back in your face, 'cause you're such a smart ass most of the time and I know you want this to go viral", Conway said.

There is widespread agreement that anchors and reporters will be under pressure to fact-check and contextualize whatever Trump says.

The president also referred to how drugs such as meth, heroin, and fentanyl were coming through the southern border, and that this would be stymied by a wall that would pay for itself with a new trade deal with Mexico.

"It's like the patient zero of fake news", Wallace added.

Top news personalities including CNN's Chris Cuomo, Fox News Channel's Bret Baier and ABC's George Stephanopoulos attended the lunch, which lasted about an hour and 20 minutes. Interestingly, the Trump speech from the White House and the Democrats' response from the Capital building were perfectly matched on FNC, which will not be good news to that frequent viewer at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. "That's the problem for putting this on the air", former Clinton White House press secretary Joe Lockhart said on CNN's "New Day" on Tuesday.




Not even Fox News was having Donald Trump's lies about border security following his prime time address on Tuesday night.

Seth Meyers, the host of "Late Night" on NBC, took a position about this on his show Monday night.

After Trump speaks, congressional Democratic leaders, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (N.Y.), will be given time for their rebuttal, according to a CNN Tweet. Among the key demo of adults age 25-54, Fox News averaged 1.8 million, compared to 1.4 million demo viewers for CNN while MSNBC failed to crack the 1 million viewer plateau.

As of Tuesday morning, all the major cable and broadcast networks have confirmed that they will carry the Democratic speech.
