    Fox News Apologizes After Coming Under Fire For Using Photos of Eagles Players Praying During Segment on NFL Anthem Dispute GTSA

    • The White House on Monday disinvited the Philadelphia Eagles from its traditional post-championship visit after some players indicated they would not be attending.
    • While covering the news, Fox News falsely implied that Eagles players knelt during the anthem this year, showing images of players kneeling in prayer before and after games while talking about the White House's decision.
    • Eagles tight end Zach Ertz responded on Twitter, calling the segment "propaganda."



    On Monday the White House disinvited the Philadelphia Eagles from their ceremonial White House visit.

    The Eagles were prepared to carry on with the visit with a smaller delegation from the team, but the White House instead chose to cancel their invitation altogether.

    While reporting the story, FOX News appeared to imply that Philadelphia Eagles players had been kneeling during the anthem throughout the year. However, the images that they used were of players kneeling in prayer, removed from the playing of the anthem, rather than kneeling during the anthem in protest of police brutality and racial inequality.

    FOX News via Twitter @FoxNews wrote:President @realDonaldTrump says Philadelphia @Eagles won't attend @WhiteHouse ceremony amid national anthem dispute https://t.co/QOOUCfOxhD  pic.twitter.com/4yFsEJrTQ1

    Some Eagles players did participate in the ongoing protests of police brutality, but not by kneeling during the anthem. Safety Malcolm Jenkins raised his fist as the anthem played, while other players stood arm-in-arm or with their arm around Butler in solidarity.

    Tight end Zach Ertz, who was shown kneeling during the Fox News segment, took to Twitter to express his anger over the matter.

    Zach Ertz, Tight End for the Philadelphia Eagles via Twitter @ZERTZ_86 wrote:This can’t be serious.... Praying before games with my teammates, well before the anthem, is being used for your propaganda?! Just sad, I feel like you guys should have to be better than this... https://twitter.com/foxnews/status/1003845673073238016 …

    On Tuesday, Christopher Wallace, Executive Producer of FOX News @ Night with Shannon Bream, issued an apology for the error.

    "During our report about President Trump canceling the Philadelphia Eagles trip to the White House to celebrate their Super Bowl win, we showed unrelated footage of players kneeling in prayer. To clarify, no members of the team knelt in protest during the national anthem throughout regular or post-season last year. We apologize for the error."

    The White House said it still plans to host some Eagles fans today for a ceremony "that will honor our great country, pay tribute to the heroes who fight to protect it, and loudly and proudly play the National Anthem," according to a statement.

    This is just another example of...

    Eagles: "We disagree with you Mr. Trump."

    Trump: "Shut up and play football."

    This whole thing about the National Anthem and the NFL is absolutely ridiculous.  Now, FOX News has joined in so much they had to run "fake news" in order to belabor Trump's talking point.  For those who are paying attention, here's the breakdown one more time...

    THIS IS NOT ABOUT DISRESPECTING THE NATIONAL ANTHEM.

    THIS IS NOT ABOUT DISRESPECTING THE AMERICAN FLAG.

    THIS IS NOT ABOUT DISRESPECTING ANY MAN OR WOMAN WHO FOUGHT FOR THIS COUNTRY, UNDER THAT FLAG!

    THIS IS ABOUT PROTESTING RACIAL INJUSTICE AND POLICE BRUTALITY!

    If you're not awake about all this, then you are indeed apart of the problem, and right now, we know where the problem lies.

    Just saying.
