Fox News Runs Fake News Story About Navy SEAL For 11 Days Before Retracting
A 72 year old man reportedly served in the Vietnam War as a Navy SEAL, receiving 2 purple hearts and 2 dozen other medals for his service.
“The man’s story turned out to be a fabrication” and “Don Shipley, a retired SEAL, told the Navy Times that he contacted Fox on Oct. 9, the day after the story ran. But the story was still on the news outlet’s Facebook page on Oct. 19. By then it had amassed 1.5 million views. Fox published a correction on Thursday.”
