Fox News host Jesse Watters has retracted comments he said on Saturday that seemed to praise the conspiracy theory movement known as QAnon, calling the group a “fringe platform.”
In a statement provided to Mediaite by Fox News, Watters retracted those comments about QAnon, clarifying that he did not support or believe in the conspiracy theories the group promoted.
“While discussing the double standard of big tech censorship,” said Watters, “I mentioned the conspiracy group QAnon, which I don’t support or believe in. My comments should not be mistaken for giving credence to this fringe platform.”
During his interview with Eric Trump, Watters said QAnon has “uncovered some really great things.” Eric Trump himself has promoted QAnon on his Instagram page, once posting a giant “Q.”
