pretty disgusting how @GianniWindahl and @CBS7News just air blatant islamophobia pic.twitter.com/5nR3mPU0Rz— jordan (@JordanUhl) April 20, 2019
For a "news" broadcast to just put out this disgusting Islamohobia without any context is indefensible. It's one thing if the story had been "Katie Hopkins and this other lady came to Florida to promote blatant lies and bigotry. Here is an example of some of the garbage they are feeding people." That would have been responsible journalism. But to televise these kind of comments as if they were just facts, just undisputed facts, is just stunningly irresponsible at best. If this is not just being cavalier with the truth and reckless with people's safety, then it is intentional promotion of hatred, bigotry and baldfaced lies.
They either don't care, or couldn't be bothered to look into who Katie Hopkins is. A cursory Google search would have shown them that Hopkins is someone who spreads false and inflammatory stories like "white South African farmers are being murdered and having their land stolen by black thugs."

That she is the kind of person who tweets out garbage like this:
And the world looked the other way because Christians matter less. https://t.co/mv0uAWUqsC— Katie Hopkins (@KTHopkins) April 21, 2019
As if the church bombings in Sri Lanka weren't the top story on every news page on the web.
It would have taken just a moment to find out that she is someone who associates with vile scum like Alex Jones.

And this wasn't even FOX, by the way. It was a CBS affiliate. And they just gave this evil woman a platform to spew her lies completely unchallenged. Sickening!
