Fox News has spent over 100 days in 2022 attacking innocent LGBTQ families, new report reveals.
“Fox News attacked LGBTQ people at least once on 106 of the 181 days in the first half of 2022 (59%). Fox’s anti-LGBTQ attacks were particularly focused during LGBTQ Pride Month in June, with the network attacking the community at least once a day on 26 out of 30 days (87%).
Fox News’ attacks against the LGBTQ community during this time period were extreme and harmful. Fox anchors, hosts, and guests repeatedly spread baseless lies about queer and trans people, including falsely claiming that life-saving gender-affirming health care is “child abuse,” spreading the long-debunked myth that LGBTQ people seek to groom children for sexual exploitation, and misgendering and deadnaming trans people.
The network’s most popular star, Tucker Carlson, even repeatedly called for violence against teachers who discuss LGBTQ issues with their students. Fox’s attacks come at a time when calls for violence against LGBTQ people are being answered by right-wing extremists. In fact, incidents of anti-LGBTQ demonstrations and violence rose from 15 events in 2020 to 61 in 2021, according to data collected by Armed Conflict Location & Event Data Project. There have already been 33 incidents in 2022, putting it on track to be even worse than last year.” [READ MORE]
