Fox News helps promote Border Patrol union's alternative facts regarding border agent's death

Last year, Donald Trump, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and U.S. Senators John Cornyn and Ted Cruz wasted no time trying to pin the death of a border patrol agent on Mexicans, with Trump tweeting that “we will seek out and bring to justice those responsible. We will, and must, build the Wall!” Gross … and fake news. The FBI interviewed nearly 700 people and in a report released this month, stated that it found no evidence that the agent was attacked by Mexicans or anyone else for that matter. Seems clear enough, unless you’re reading Fox News:

Don’t let the facts get in your way, guys. It must be noted that the National Border Patrol Council, the Border Patrol’s official union, endorsed Trump in 2016 and has been colluding with anti-immigrant organizations for years. Among other things, the union records a podcast out of Breitbart studios, and according to a 2015 report, “the Texas chapter of the National Border Patrol Council honored Breitbart Texas … and its Managing Director, Brandon Darby, with an appreciation award for their work in ‘exposing the realities of law enforcement along America’s southern border.’” 

Well, “the realities of law enforcement along America’s southern border” actually include border agents purposefully destroying lifesaving jugs of water left in the desert and then prosecuting the good samaritans who leave them there, but the union most likely won’t mention that during their next podcast. Their mission is an anti-immigrant one, and Fox News’s mission is to defend Donald Trump at all costs. The unfortunate headline in the tweet shows what happens when the two marry without any regard to the facts.

Kim Cattrall Tells SJP ‘You Are Not My Friend’ 4 Days After Thanking Costars Following Brother’s Death

On Saturday, Kim Cattrall — who is grieving the recent death of her brother, Chrissent a message to her former Sex and the City costar Sarah Jessica Parker, telling her “You are not my friend” and “I don’t need your love and support at this tragic time.”

Cattrall confirmed on Sunday that her 55-year-old brother Chris had been found dead — just hours after asking fans to help find him after he went missing in Canada.

After learning of the tragedy, Parker had reached out to her privately and had written a supportive comment on social media: “Dearest Kim, my love and condolences to you and yours and Godspeed to your beloved brother. Xx.”

It initially appeared Cattrall was receptive to Parker’s messages of condolences, thanking her and other SATC colleagues for “the outpouring of support for myself and my family” on Twitter Tuesday.

Cattrall began criticizing her former SATC costars last year after Parker revealed that plans for a third SATC movie had been scrapped. Sources said that Cattrall’s demands had derailed the project; Cattrall denied this, saying she never agreed to do the film. In October she told Piers Morgan that she’s “never been friends” with her SATC costars.

Parker has not responded to Cattrall’s Saturday Instagram post, but she did address Cattrall’s previous remarks to PEOPLE last week during an interview for an upcoming story about her HBO show Divorce, her new Gap Kids line and other projects.

“I never responded to the conversation that Kim had with Piers Morgan, where she said things that were really hurtful about me,” Parker tells PEOPLE. “I don’t want to answer it, that’s not how I feel about her. I think of her as part of this experience and it was amazing. We had a connection with the audience, and we had a connection with this city and with this crew and we got to tell these crazy stories with each other. And I don’t want to mess with that.”

Parker says that after Cattrall’s brother went missing earlier this month, “I rang and I didn’t get her and I texted her. And then when I learned he passed I reached out. I can’t imagine what it’s like for her right now.”
