Fox News blasted for claiming 'no word on possible motive' of DC MAGA bomb suspect who demanded Biden resign
In his videos, Roseberry said he was “picked by the American [expletive] people to come up here and take a stand.” Much of his ranting was directed specifically at Biden and suggested he believed in the baseless election fraud conspiracy theories pushed by former President Donald Trump and other prominent Republicans that Biden was not legally elected.
“I just got chose for the job. Unlike you,” Roseberry said. “This ain’t about politics. I don’t care if Donald Trump ever becomes president again. I think y'all Democrats need to step down. Y'all need to understand people don’t want you there.”
Many are furious that once again Fox News is distorting the truth to protect its core base of pro-Trump MAGA supporters.
Incredible -- Fox News just reported "no word on a possible motive" for DC bomb threat suspect Floyd Ray Roseberry, even though Roseberry posted video rants in which he echoed right-wing Trump and Fox News talking points pic.twitter.com/warM2ulPCS— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) August 20, 2021

@JackieibanezFNC ‘No Word on a Possible Motive’ for Man Who Said He’d BLOW UP WASHINGTON, DC UNLESS BIDEN RESIGNED.No motive, #JackieIbanez, except for wanting to overturn the legitimately elected government of the US by threat of force. Can't find any motive *there*. — Paul Hanlin Jr (Fully Vaccinated) (@Paul_Hanlin_Jr) August 20, 2021
A man spouting anti-Biden, anti-immigrant, anti-gov't right-wing rhetoric and conspiracies threatened to blow up a bomb near the U.S Capitol today ... None of Fox News' primetime shows covered it (there was a 15 sec Fox News Live news brief during an Ing. commercial break)— Lis Power (@LisPower1) August 20, 2021
Not only was it evident that yesterday's bomb terrorist had become radicalized by Fox News and GOP propaganda, he also complained about inadequate health care; a problem that the GOP has caused.

Fox News reports "no word on a possible motive" on DC bomb incident today. This is, of course, aside from the couple of hours of livestreamed grievances direct from the suspect that were, in fact, a sad jumble of common Fox News narratives. https://t.co/siQOxMYviS— Justin Hendrix (@justinhendrix) August 20, 2021
No word on a possible motive … that would fit our narrative— Larissa Gallagher (@larissala) August 20, 2021
