‘Fox & Friends’ Interviews ‘Thomas Jefferson’ About The Poor State Of America

‘Fox & Friends” had a big exclusive this morning. The third President of the United States, Thomas Jefferson, was a guest on the program today, despite having been dead for 187 years or so. Jefferson is not a fan of the current state of the U.S. government.

TPM has the highlights:

Yes, obviously it was an actor portraying Jefferson, though that fact was not acknowledged until the end of the interview. The whole segment was reminiscent of a bit from December where the team interviewed ”Santa Claus” about the “War on Christmas.”

As we have documented, TV news has a long and illustrious history of interviewing fictional characters or actors playing characters, and pretending they are real. That’s called journalism!
