Fox News loves to spread divisiveness in their viewers’ lives, but as they are running out of ways to defend Donald Trump and Roy Moore, they need something more sensational to make sure families fight this Thanksgiving.
So what could they possibly use to really create anarchy this coming Thursday? The Moon Landing! Fox News didn’t just share a YouTube video that claims to show evidence that the moon landing was faked—they wrote an entire story on it. They note that “shows a picture that was allegedly taken in December 1972, is named “Reflection in a Visor.” The person who posted it, using the user name Streetcap1, claims that there is a reflection of a stagehand on the helmet of one of the astronauts.”
Granted, they reported how it is doubtful, and how there is “insurmountable evidence” that the landing did take place. So why are they writing features on a Moon Landing conspiracy theory?
It’s Thanksgiving week and news is slow. And instead of writing pieces on Roy Moore or Trump’s horrendous tweets of the hour (which makes news writing very easy), they need to scrape the bottom of the internet for news stories.
The least credible news source not called Infowars or the Blaze or Breitbart just got a little less credible.
