Fox News has released a relatively balanced and fair article on the controversial confrontation between Nick Fuentes and Ben Shapiro. Where Ben Shapiro fled the scene using his family as shields. Following the incident, a large number of big-name celebrities came out in defense of Ben Shapiro with an all-out attack on Nick Fuentes. Big names like Nikki Haley, Meghan McCain, and Megyn Kelly, but also others like the creepy porn lawyer Michael Avenatti, and Sebastian Gorka weighed in with stinging attacks on Nick Fuentes and defending Ben Shapiro.
But Fox News has rather surprisingly published an article that defends Nick Fuentes’s side of the story. The original article labeled Nick as conservative and did not label Nick a holocaust denier or make a big deal over the cookie monster skit. Instead, the article did a good job of presenting Nick’s side by quoting many of his Tweets responding to the attacks, including many of the Tweets that were critical of Zionism.
Nevertheless, within hours the article was edited to include smears by the ADL, bringing up Charlottesville and the Cookie monster skit as well as the Washington Post story in which Nick denied the accusations of Holocaust denial. We can only assume, only hours following the publishing of the article, the ADL was able to pressure Fox News into editing the article so that Nick was painted in a negative light. Nick was originally described in the article as conservative and not far-right.
Still, all in all, the article was good coverage for the Groyper movement that has exposed many Fox News readers to Nick Fuentes and America First, and it’s clear that fake conservatives like Ben Shapiro and Charlie Kirk, as well as all the fake conservative inc crowd, are panicking over the Groyper movement and true America First.
