Fox News Dedicates Entire Segment To Spewing Bullshit About Jemele Hill Being "Unemployed"

The U.S. president’s favorite television show Fox & Friends spent an entire segment this morning blasting Jemele Hill, stating the ESPN writer and commentator lost her job at the network due to her criticism of Donald Trump. One problem: Jemele Hill remains fully, gainfully employed by the Worldwide Leader.

Most of the vitriol came via guest Lawrence Jones, who has a history of spreading outright lies on the network yet continues to be invited onto Fox News, perhaps on account of his excellent talent for spreading outright lies on the network.


Fox & Friends issued a correction 5 1/2 hours later, blaming Jones, though certainly any of the other three individuals onscreen at the time could have corrected him but chose not to.
