(NEWSBUSTERS) – The border crisis was out of sight out of mind for the broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) Monday evening after most of them spent last week peddling lies about Border Patrol agents using whips from horseback. But as Fox News Channel’s Special Report documented that evening, some 10,000 Haitian migrants were staging in Mexico with another 15,000 reportedly on their way through the “pipeline” from South America.
Instead of reporting on this impending next wave in the ongoing border crisis, ABC’s World News Tonight fretted about the “fuel crisis” in the U.K., CBS Evening News touched on Facebook pausing its proposed Instagram for young teens, and NBC Nightly News was out there talking about how attempted presidential assassin John Hinckley Jr. “wins freedom.” All three of them also touted how President Biden had gotten his COVID booster shot.
Meanwhile, Fox News anchor Bret Baier kicked off Special Report with the looming crisis. “Breaking tonight, the southern border crisis at the Texas border is about to get worse because of the southern border crisis at the Mexican border with Guatemala. That is the entry point for thousands of migrants hoping to make their way into the U.S.,” he announced at the top of the hour.
