Fox News is now hyping an invitation for U.N. envoys on racism and human rights to visit the United States — which Secretary of State Antony Blinken said was an effort to “lead by example” on human rights — depicting it as the Biden administration asking the United Nations to investigate the U.S.
But in the telling of Fox Nation host Lara Logan, appearing on Thursday’s edition of Outnumbered, this move is more sinister: an “act of desperation” to “divert attention away” from imminent findings that the 2020 election was stolen.
This is not even the first time that a Fox host claimed to have an intelligence source telling them that Donald Trump won the 2020 election — Fox Business’ Maria Bartiromo made similar claims in December, on the same day as the Electoral College delegates were voting across the country to formalize President Joe Biden’s victory.
Logan also referred to Fox host Tucker Carlson’s show the night before, in which he pushed a series of easily debunked theories circulating among far-right media about the election in Georgia, involving some initial counting errors that were already resolved in the state’s manual hand recount. Carlson also ended his monologue by appearing to threaten a repeat of the January 6 insurrection.
