Rupert Murdoch reporter quits in disgust after being 'ordered to write' BS story on Kamala Harris (Raw Story link): Rupert Murdoch's tabloid, the New York Post, published a ridiculously false smear of Kamala Harris.
"An announcement: Today I handed in my resignation to my editors at the New York Post. The Kamala Harris story -- an incorrect story I was ordered to write and which I failed to push back hard enough against -- was my breaking point," she explained.
As Ali noted, Italiano did not "say who ordered her to write the story nor does she apologize."
Fact check: No, Biden is not trying to force Americans to eat less red meat (CNN Politics link): Republican members of Congress, Fox News personalities and other prominent right-wing figures are falsely claiming that President Joe Biden is trying to force Americans to eat far less red meat.
No fewer than five Fox News or Fox Business personalities told versions of the scare story on the air starting Friday morning. For example, Fox News host Jesse Watters said Saturday that "Americans are going to have to cut their red meat consumption by 90% in order to reduce emissions to hit Biden's target. That means you're only allowed to eat four pounds of red meat a year. That adds up to a burger a month. That's it."
Here's the truth.
Facts First: Biden has not proposed any limit on Americans' red meat consumption. In fact, he has not proposed any limit on Americans' consumption of any food. The false claim about Biden trying to restrict people to four pounds of red meat per year appears to have originated with a deceptive Thursday article by the British tabloid The Daily Mail. The article baselessly connected Biden's climate proposals to an academic paper from 2020 that is not about Biden and says nothing about the government imposing dietary limits.
