Colbert Reveals Just How Little Coverage Fox News Gives To Caravan Post-Election

"The Late Show" host found a drastic difference in how many times "Fox & Friends" mentioned the term before and after the election.

“Late Show” host Stephen Colbert noted Friday how Fox News’ fear-mongering reporting of the migrant caravan traveling through Mexico toward the U.S. has dramatically changed since the midterm elections.

Colbert pointed out how the “Fox & Friends” morning show used the word “caravan” an average 21 times per episode in the six days prior to Tuesday’s vote.

But, per Colbert’s research team, the program only mentioned the topic once on the day after the election. “I can’t watch ‘Fox & Friends’ because my doctor said it’s just horrible,” quipped Colbert during his analysis.
