Following an attack on Fox News meteorologist Adam Klotz in the New York City subway, the network’s flagship morning show Fox & Friends has repeatedly blamed the beating on one man: Liberal financier and right-wing catch-all boogeyman George Soros.
Over the weekend, Klotz was left with two black eyes, bruised ribs and cuts across his face following an altercation with a group of teens on the 1 train. According to the weatherman, he attempted to stop the young men from hassling an older gentleman, only for the teenagers to attack him instead.
After the group of teens beat up Klotz and ran off, three of them were detained by New York Police Department officers—only to be released from custody soon after. “Juvenile reports were prepared, and their parents were called to pick them up,” an NYPD representative said. Klotz has since noted that police have told him he would need to file charges.
