During Monday’s coronavirus press conference, Dr. Anthony Fauci rebuked the media for pouncing on an out of context quote pulled from an interview he gave to CNN the previous day. The liberal media had been using the quote to suggest President Trump was responsible for the deaths of over 20,000 Americans due to alleged inaction. ABC’s World News Tonight manipulated the video of Fauci’s defense of the President to leave out key details, and insinuated that he was pressured by the President.
As he was speculating about him being in hot water with the President because of the CNN interview, ABC senior national correspondent Terry Moran lied about Fauci blaming Trump for the deaths. “This, on the same day Fauci declared, in an interview on CNN, that the administration's reluctance to call for shutdowns and strong social distancing measures sooner has cost more American lives in the pandemic.”
That’s not what he said and ABC manipulated that video too, see the transcript below where it says “transition.”
