As Twitchy told you, the New York Times’ Kevin Roose reported that the top-performing stories on Facebook about the migrant caravan have been from conservative media outlets:
Not a shocker, but the top performing stories containing "caravan" on Facebook in the last 24 hours come from:
1. Fox News (also the #1 performing link overall)
3. Fox News
4. Ben Shapiro
5. Daily Caller
6. Ben Shapiro
7. Daily Caller
8. News & Guts

It’s just too much.
Also worth noting:
