Fox Attacks Duckworth For Using Disability Benefits

Mediaite reports:

Fox News is drawing a great deal of blowback for a misleading headline about Senator Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) not paying property taxes. On Sunday, Fox published an online piece entitled “Democrat Tammy Duckworth hasn’t paid property tax on her Illinois home since 2015, report says.”

Fox’s headline blatantly suggests that Duckworth is freeloading off of her state. Between that and the article’s admission that Duckworth is a disabled veteran who qualifies for the exemption, many news observers were deeply unimpressed by the article’s apparent framing as a hit piece.
