Specifically, as of 10:30 a.m. ET on June 30, six of the 13 stories that the Fox Nation was promoting on its front-page “Media” section came from NewsBusters.

NewsBusters and its contributors have a history of promoting falsehoods and misleading or discredited claims about progressives and Democratic figures.

Fox Nation has also frequently mocked and made falsehoods about progressives and Democrats.
