Fox News Reporter Shuts Down ‘Absolute Hack’ Who Distorted His Report on Texas School Shooting – Opinion

Fox News’ Bill Melugin, a Fox News correspondent, is very skilled at his job. This goes back to when he worked at the Fox News affiliate in Charlotte. The cable news network made him a national reporter, which meant that he was primarily focused on covering the illegal immigration problems at the border of states like Texas and Arizona.

Melugin’s in-depth, on-the-ground (and sometimes in the air via helicopters and use of drones) matter-of-fact reporting on the border crisis has been very effective at shining a bright spotlight on the serious problems the Biden administration doesn’t want the American people to see. For that reason, he’s now being attacked and vilified by The Usual Suspects on the left who are portraying him as a closet conservative “propagandist” who is allegedly using his position to advance anti-immigration rhetoric his critics claim is spouted from right-wingers.

So it was little surprise to see another one go after Melugin’s coverage during a segment Tuesday on the horrific mass shooting that took place at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas that claimed the lives of 19 children and two teachers who were trying to protect them.

Timothy Burke aka “BubbaProg,” who proudly boasts in his Twitter bio that his work has been featured at liberal “news” sites like the Daily Beast and Deadspin, was monitoring Fox News after the shooting happened and shared the below six-second clip of Melugin commenting on a question asked by Fox News host Jeanine Pirro about whether or not a chase from the border patrol of the now-deceased perpetrator proceeded the shootings.

Remember that this rumor was reported by multiple media outlets, including ABC News and CBS News. They were trying to discover the truth and share it with viewers and readers. But “Bubba” decided to narrow his focus on Fox News, where he proceeded to cut off Melugin’s full answer to the question in an attempt at “owning” the Fox News reporter and his employer who Burke clearly insinuated was trying to turn this into a “blame the illegal immigrant” thing.


Below is Melugin’s more detailed answer. Here, people clearly see that Melugin actually cast doubts on the reliability of early reports regarding a chase by border patrol agents.

Melugin is no stranger to this deceptive tactic and responded accordingly, calling the wannabe-Aaron Rupar an “absolute hack” for good measure:

It’s never a good time to deceptively edit a video to get RTs and clicks (which is a routine practice for the left, as we’ve previously documented) but it’s especially NotIt is a great time to do this in the middle of tragedy, when emotions are high. People are searching for solutions through the media.

Incredibly, “Bubba” later accused Fox News of reporting “some of the most irresponsible garbage you will ever see on television” regarding the school shooting, apparently blissfully unaware of how ironic that was coming from the guy who deliberately and irresponsibly suggested that Fox News was trying to whip up anti-illegal immigrant sentiment.

Some people took advantage of the chance to report Burke’s tweet to Twitter for “manipulated media” but of course, it’s still up as of this writing because as we all know at this point Twitter’s only “standards” are double standards that allow the left routinely skate free on manipulating content, which quite literally happens every day – and often with the blessing of mainstream media reporters at supposedly “credible” news sites like the Washington Post.
