Default Fox News Hosts Flip Out as FAA Grounds Drone Gawking at Migrants Under Texas Bridge

Fox News Hosts Flip Out as FAA Grounds Drone Gawking at Migrants Under Texas Bridge

Quote:
Fox News can no longer bring its viewers live voyeuristic footage of desperate people huddled under a bridge in Texas—and its hosts are mad. Late Thursday, the Federal Aviation Administration brought in a two-week flight restriction over Del Rio, which means that Fox News has to ground the drone it’s been using to show the scene at International Bridge between Del Rio and Mexico’s Ciudad Acuña. At least 10,000 migrants, largely from Haiti, have gathered at the bridge, and Reuters reports the people are low on food and water as temperatures hit 99 degrees Fahrenheit. The FAA said the flight restriction was needed “due to drones interfering with law enforcement flights,” and the media can still “make requests to operate in the area.” Fox News hosts, who have been fear-mongering about the gathering all week, reacted to the ban with anger. Sean Hannity accused the FAA of “trying to prevent Fox’s drone from showing the American people the truth and capturing images just like this... The FAA is being used to cover up for Biden’s failures. And we are going to let that stand? I don’t think so.”

poor widdle Hannity can't be a voyeur.

So you agree with the administration allowing the FAA to put in a flight restriction in an obvious attempt to shield themselves from the news media?

What other political moves would you approve of from this admin. Also, would you have felt the same way had this happened to CNN or MSNBC while Trump was president?

I do find it funny as Fox simply hitched a ride with a Texas enforcement agency and filmed from their helicopter. What will Pete Buttigieg do now?

I think you missed the point (with the help of Hannity types ); this is voyeurism into the inhuman conditions people are living, and interference with law enforcement.

By the time you ran here to post DailyBeast BS, the FAA had rescinded the politically motivated restricted airspace order.

There was no interference with law enforcement by Fox's reporting, either by drone or otherwise . . . Fox has been there every day for 7 months and has used the drone continuously the entire time with zero issues from DHS/BPS or Texas . . . Well, until the Biden admin became embarrassed with the footage of the humanitarian crisis and law enforcement nightmare of 11,000 illegals -- mostly Haitian, swarming Del Rio over the last couple days because of a stupid statement by Biden . . .




I would note the that first thing this morning, 10AM Eastern, before the drone ban was lifted, Texas Dept of Public Safety invited the Fox reporter and cameraman in their helicopter for an extended fight all up and down the Rio Grande on both sides of the border, even filming the coyote drop-off procedure in Mexico and the constant stream of people crossing the river. This resulted in much better footage, more damaging to Biden footage than any drone flight, a short snippet:




This morning's live footage, on Fox News, of Fox News on a Texas Dept of Public Safety chopper, was probably a big reason why the drone ban was rescinded, the feds couldn't ban TDPS from flying and having this be a daily routine would be unthinkable LOL.

Why do you go to the Daily Beast for any info and an even better question, why would you bring their crap here and post it like it is a real news item?

The left's erotic obsession with anything they consider voyeuristic borders perilously close to the edge of stupidity, but that is par for the course anyway.

from fox news:

"The Border Patrol requested the temporary flight restriction due to drones interfering with law enforcement flights on the border," the FAA said in a statement Thursday evening. "As with any temporary flight restriction, media is able to call the FAA to make requests to operate in the area."

But seriously?
Foxnews needs to fly a drone over the small portion of Haiti that is home to six million, then fly one over the large portion that is home to the elite.
Now that the military has dethroned a despot hopefully there will be elections. This all started in 1972 and Mexico took them in initially.
Meanwhile train wreck loving people continue to ogle these unfortunates instead of demanding food; it outrages them for their own selfish or prejudiced reasons.

Pearl clutching over the "unfortunates" taking refuge under a bridge in Texas as if they hadn't been invited by Biden's so-called humane open borders policies is about as unserious as it gets.

Worse, censoring news coverage of the crisis caused by the Biden regime's radical Leftist policies as voyeuristic only provides further confirmation of how the corrupt ministry of truth has largely replaced the free press. Leading advocate of blind hatred for the Trump administration the WaPo whose motto is democracy dies in darkness is supremely disinterested in the misery caused by Biden's border policies purely for political reasons.

Do you see the problem here? You are really going to believe the excuse for the political TFR given by the same agency that put the quickly rescinded TFR in place?

Can you link to any statement by BPS claiming interference?

Surely, with BPS personnel at all ranks regularly appearing on Fox News and chaperoning Fox reporters and discussing this and other Biden created border disasters, a snippet of tape exists of someone from BPS actually complaining about the drones. Truth is, you won't find any BPS people complaining about Fox's drones before the TFR or validating FAA's BS claim since the TFR.

What in Biden's Butthole are you going on about?

If you want an example of sadistic voyeurism how about all the celebratory stories of anyone who spoke out in opposition to the vax getting COVID (and especially dying of it)?

How many statements were made and stories published over the last couple weeks by disgusting leftists and leftist outlets about the three anti-vax radio hosts?

Here, here's the story that flowed from your favorite septic tank, The Daily Beast:

Conservative Radio Hosts Are Being Killed By Their Own Anti-Vaccine Propaganda

Whenever you make one of your claims like this "voyeurism" one, make sure you aren't standing in a fun-house mirror room, only looking and pointing at yourself and your fellow leftists dancing in blood . . .

One has to wonder: If an anchor on CNN or MSNBC were complaining of the same thing, would you really be so dismissive of him?

Note: This ban has since been reversed.

So Texas has had enough of this feckless, hollowman of a President's program of destroying the USA . . .
