Gutfeld Slams Media for Buying Teen's Lie About Anti-Muslim Attack
In his monologue on "The Five" today, Greg Gutfeld ripped the media for immediately running with the story of a Muslim teen who claimed she was harassed by Trump supporters on a New York City subway.
Yasmin Seweid, 18, has since admitted she made the whole story up, and she has been charged with obstructing governmental administration and filing a false report.
Gutfeld said the media bought Seweid's lie with no questions asked because they wanted to believe that Trump voters "gleefully attack innocent Muslims."
"So they suspended skepticism, and they enabled a lie," Gutfeld said.
He added that the media will now likely turn the narrative to Seweid's "issues," not her crime.
Gutfeld said the media should actually be more focused on their own issues, such as continually buying these hoaxes.
"Even now, when reporting this lie, they still claim it's an exception among real attacks, which is another lie," Gutfeld stated.
"But that's our media, who takes fiction as fact because it fits their ghoulish assumptions. It's a hate crime against all of us."
