Fox News LA’s Bill Melugin has become an essential follow on Twitter for his coverage of the border. He’s the one who kept questioning the progress of that so-called investigation into the two mounted Border Patrol agents who were caught “whipping” Haitian migrants. He’s the one who reported on the drowning death of a Texas Army National Guard soldier in the Rio Grande while trying to save migrants. And he’s also about the one reporter who covers the number of immigrants coming across the border each month. So of course Media Matters is smearing him as a “far-right propagandist.”
Fox News' Bill Melugin is a far-right propagandist masquerading as a neutral, disinterested voice https://t.co/yVnDFtGwZz

He’s Fox News’ top anti-migrant reporter? Let’s see what he says against immigrants in his most recent tweets:
BREAKING: There were 234,088 migrants encountered at the Southern border in April, per a DHS court filing today. That’s the highest number in DHS history.
117,989 migrants were released into the U.S. in April.
113,248 were removed, including 96,908 expelled via Title 42. @FoxNews

We’re not seeing the “far-right” bias in Melugin’s tweet. That the Border Patrol encountered the highest number of migrants in DHS history last month is a fact. Does Media Matters have a problem with the facts? Never mind.
Literally documenting the illegal crossing of our borders is … <looks up> … "propaganda?
Clowns. All of you, mmfa.

Thank you, Media Matters, for acknowledging @BillFOXLA and his excellent coverage of the border crisis. All good reporters should strive to receive your disapproval.

HOW DARE HE cover the news we don't want you to see.

What is he saying that isn’t true?
— FieldRoamer (@FieldRoamer) May 17, 2022
Has he reported any falsehoods? Or just spread videos that you don’t want people to see?

Who is the neutral voice reporter at the border covering the border?

We not it’s neither President Joe Biden nor Vice President Kamala Harris, neither of whom has visited the border.
😂😂😂 This is rich

This is a such bad tweet and an erroneous story. I'm in PR and worked with @BillFOXLA on several business stories. He was fair and professional. You are doing a disservice to the American public and journalism in general by publishing and promoting this false propaganda.

Odd since all he really does is post videos of actual events as they occur.

Media Matters is garbage masquerading as a “progressive media watchdog.”
Bill Melugin reports that, according to multiple sources, Texas National Guard soldier drowned in the Rio Grande 'while trying to save migrants' https://t.co/rR98rKXYwx
