On Thursday morning, Fox and Friends spent time informing viewers of some of the misinformation that the dominant liberal media like CNN and MSNBC have been spreading about the caravan of illegal immigrants trying to get into the U.S.

As co-host Steve Doocy was joined by Gus Portela of Accuracy in Media, the segment highlighted the media tendency to downplay the large number of adult men and non-citizens who will never qualify for asylum who are trying to use the caravan to enter the U.S., as well as the significant number who have a criminal history.

At 8:17 a.m. Eastern, Doocy began with a soundbite of the ACLU’s Lee Gelernt appearing on CNN’s New Day asserting that many of the caravan members would qualify for asylum. In another clip, liberal CNN political commentator Maria Cardona talked up those immigrants who could be granted asylum.
