From the August 30 edition of Fox News’ Outnumbered:
DAGEN MCDOWELL (CO-HOST): Remember the players -- who hands up, don't shoot? They were not, they were not reprimanded for that at all. They were not fined by the NFL.
HARRIS FAULKNER (CO-HOST): And that was narrative that turned out not to be true.
MCDOWELL: Right, it was complete lie and a falsehood, and nothing happened to them.
LISA BOOTHE (CO-HOST): And the idea that there is somehow racial bias in police shootings has also been dispelled as fiction, and I really think that there is danger here for society, the mainstream media, corporations, to let this false narrative continue to be perpetuated because there is police officers lives at risk. And we've seen it from people like him. We’ve seen it from people like Beyoncé, and people allow it, and this society allows it. The mainstream media allows it. Corporations allow it. And it is a big problem because, as I mentioned, there are police lives at stake. It needs to be dispelled as fiction, and people need to call it out for what it is, which is fiction.
