Fox news has taken a sudden interest in the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. Reporters and camera crews have "been stalking various members of the board of supervisors for the past week", even going to one board member's home. The network became interested in the governing body after an undocumented immigrant killed Kathryn Steinle.
Like many other conservative networks, Fox blamed the woman's death on the board for not actively deporting undocumented immigrants. Scott Wiener is unimpressed with Fox's coverage, saying they're trying to "take advantage of a horrible crime to bash immigrants". Wiener does regularly speak to conservative news networks, but doesn't consider what Fox does as "news". He describes Fox as a "propaganda machine, nothing more and nothing less".
When Fox targeted him outside his office, Wiener took the opportunity to fill Fox in on what we all think, repeating,
Fox News is not real news. And you're not a real reporter.
The clip has gone viral, even airing on the O'Reilly Factor. Predictably, Wiener's social media feed and voicemail have been flooded with "really extreme fringe hateful comments" from Fox fans. However, the overall response has been "overwhelmingly and enthusiastically positive".
Check out the video as it aired on the O'Reilly Factor, complete with Bill O'Reilly calling Wiener a "pinhead" whose actions are "enabling evil"
