Fox Retracts Fake News Hit Piece on Trump, Admits Inaccuracy

Fox News was forced to retract a hit piece against former President Donald Trump after they admitted they “inaccurately attributed” an anti-Trump quote to former Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price.

This was the Fox News headline: “Former Trump Cabinet member tells him to ‘kiss’ his ‘butt.”

The story read, in part:

“EXCLUSIVE: Former Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price told Fox News Digital there’s “no way” he will support former President Donald Trump’s 2024 presidential bid.

When asked whether he would endorse Trump, Price said, “After he fired me? No way.” “The only thing that guy has more of than fake tan is narcissism,” Price said in an emailed statement to Fox New Digital. “He can kiss my big medical butt.”

Trump fired Price in 2017 after Politico revealed he took multiple taxpayer-funded private jet trips for personal reasons.

Dan Diamond, who broke the story, aid Price never communicated with Fox News about the story.

“A source close to Price said he: (1) never heard from Fox News on this matter, (2) did not write an email to Fox News on this matter, (3) this is not Price’s quote,” Diamond tweeted.

“Screenshot of Fox News story below.”

Fox News was then forced to retract its story.

Now, the web page’s headline reads “Correction,” with the following editor’s note:

“This article inaccurately attributed a quote to former Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price and has been retracted.”
