Granted, Fox News isn’t exactly known for having strong journalistic standards, but an article posted on Fox’s website Wednesday marks a new low for the network’s already sullied reputation.
According to the article, a nationwide shortage of “signature sauce” at Chick-fil-A restaurants can be blamed on President Joe Biden. The proof? They cited remarks made by Republican political figures.
The article in question contains this bit of idiocy:
“Amid the massive fuel shortage in several states as a result of the Colonial Pipeline cyberattack, Chick-fil-A is reportedly facing a short supply of its signature sauce.
“Following multiple reports of the popular fast food restaurant limiting how many Chick-fil-A sauce packets each customer is allowed, social media users took to Twitter to express their outrage – not at the restaurant – but at President Joe Biden.”
Joe Biden is destroying America. https://t.co/0G1zpgS2ax

In Joe Biden’s America:
Chick-fil-A has to limit sauces because of supply chain issues.
Gas stations are having mass shortages and prices are soaring.
The price of groceries are skyrocketing.
Everyday Americans are hurting and they miss Donald Trump’s America.

Joe Biden also canceled the Chick-fil-A sauce pipeline?

The stupid; it burns.
It didn’t take long before the mockery of Fox’s “news standards” began in response to their Chick-fil-A report:
This page is getting more pathetic by the day lmao. Imagine blaming a sauce shortage on Biden with a straight face lol. It’s the type of headline you would see on a parody account.

This is the dumbest headline ever. I literally cannot believe that this is not an Onion article. An editor approved this. https://t.co/47ErZBIQUS

If things are going so well that the worst thing we have to complain about is a sauce shortage then we’re doing great.

I would rather be blamed for a sauce shortage then the death of 600,000 Americans. But I guess to Fox News, sauce is more important.

Someone hacked Fox’s Twitter account and is just randomly putting words together as news articles, aren’t they?

Maybe Fox can have an interview with the Loch Ness Monster for an encore.
