Fox News amplifies Trump’s veiled threats of political violence after Mar-a-Lago search | Media Matters for America

FoxNews.com ran an article featuring direct comments from Donald Trump responding to the fallout of the FBI search of his residence. The title of the piece was, “Trump ‘will do whatever’ he can to ‘help the country’ after FBI raid: ‘Temperature has to be brought down.’” Far from helping to bring down the “temperature” of the public debate, Fox has just promoted Trump’s veiled threats that his supporters will carry out more political violence against federal law enforcement — as he simultaneously worked to stir them up to even more bedlam — unless the Justice Department stops investigating him.

The story was also given prominent placement on the front page of the Fox News website, with an additional tagline noting that the country is now in a “very dangerous time.”
