Fox News’s John Roberts is the latest Murdoch-empire “reporter” to be called out by Twitter users and Donald Trump supporters for consistently pushing false narratives over “white supremacy.” Despite his wife’s own reporting, Roberts repeated the canard of Trump’s inability to condemn white supremacy (FACT CHECK: He has, multiple times).
