There’s a tall Fox News reporter in his mid-30s with slicked back hair and an air of combative indignation who is getting under the skin of some people in JOE BIDEN’s administration. And he’s not PETER DOOCY.
BILL MELUGIN, a former local Los Angeles Emmy-winning reporter, has become a growing presence online and in broader political circles as Fox’s go-to reporter at the U.S. southern border. He’s done hundreds of television hits since joining the network last year, largely from border states, where he often focuses on the historic flow of migrants that are overwhelming communities there.
In recent days, several current and former White House and administration officials expressed to West Wing Playbook their increasing frustration with his on-air coverage, arguing that there is an alarmist quality to it, designed to feed political narratives rather than illuminate the actual issues feeding the migrant flow.
Melugin has been gathering footage at the border and posting them on social media since Biden took office often destroying the regime’s narratives.
Below are just some recent examples:
There are groups of migrants who have been released from federal custody walking around the city of Eagle Pass right now, appearing unsure of where to go. Border Patrol and local police are approaching them. We’ve seen others camping out in front of gas stations after release. pic.twitter.com/0IO7xyXfvH
BREAKING: We just saw a young boy nearly drown while trying to cross the Rio Grande into Eagle Pass, TX. A group tried swimming across, the boy in the blue shirt struggled & went under, began thrashing. Bystander in white shirt on MX side jumped in & saved his life. @FoxNewspic.twitter.com/jQkBtabUD5
Melugin has also been working with Jorge Ventura from the Daily Caller who has also been reporting on the border since Biden took office.
