Fox News Continues Obsession Over Pete Buttigieg and His Gay Dad Life
- January 13, 2023
A new Fox News report indicates the network’s obsession with the lives of same-sex couples. Despite having its own paternity policy, the network continues to paint Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg’s life as a gay married father as problematic.
Under the headline, “Buttigieg avoided calls, public appearances on paternity leave, FOIA documents show,” the right-wing network positioned the secretary as somehow having hidden his work attendance.
“Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg avoided some phone calls and requests for public appearances while he was on paternity leave in 2021, according to internal documents obtained through the Freedom of Information Act,” the outlet wrote.
In 2021, Tucker Carlson criticized Buttigieg for taking paternity leave amid a pending infrastructure bill and supply chain crisis.
