Fox Apologizes After Guest Calls Greta “Mentally Ill”

Buzzfeed News reports:

Fox News apologized to 16-year-old climate activist Greta Thunberg on Monday after a conservative pundit called her a “mentally ill Swedish child”. Thunberg, who has Asperger’s syndrome, delivered a powerful speech at the United Nations earlier in the day about the impact of climate change on her generation. The speech was then the subject of a segment on Fox News’s The Story, featuring reaction from conservative writer and The Daily Wire host Michael Knowles and progressive podcast host Chris Hahn.

“The climate hysteria movement is not about science,” Knowles said. “If it were about science, it would be led by scientists, rather than by politicians and a mentally ill Swedish child who is being exploited by her parents and by the international left.” Fox News apologized for the comments on Monday night and said the network had “no plans” for Knowles to appear as a guest on future shows. In addition to on-air appearances, Knowles writes opinion articles on

Knowles first appeared on JMG in 2017 when Trump praised his book, Reasons To Vote For Democrats, which is nothing but blank pages.
