Scare Tactics: Fox News Uses 5-Year-Old Clip to Portray Refugees as Terrorists

During a recent segment of Last Week Tonight, host John Oliver pointed out that Fox News was misrepresenting old footage, and using it to paint refugees as terrorists.

The footage that they used actually wasn’t very threatening at all, it just showed a train loaded with people chanting “Allahu akbar” or “god is great” in Arabic.

However, the caption for the story read “Terrorists inbound?”, and the Fox reporters said that this was footage of refugees that were on their way from Syria.


During the broadcast, one reporter said:
“We’re not saying that any of those people are terrorists or in any way affiliated with a terror group, but it does highlight just how many of these refugees who are fleeing violence in Iraq and Syria are Muslim.”
However, as John Oliver pointed out on Last Week Tonight, the footage was actually old and had been uploaded to YouTube back in 2010.

During the segment Oliver said:
“OK, first, you don’t get to claim that you’re not calling those people terrorists when your lower third says, ‘Terrorists Inbound?’ question mark. If you’re really not saying they’re terrorists, maybe change that to something more accurate, like ‘People Take Train,’ or ‘Some Wear Hats, Others Less So.

“And second, describing that as a new video that sheds light on the migrant crisis is a little misleading, because in researching this story, we found a version of that same video uploaded onto YouTube back in 2010, well before this migrant crisis even began.

“And, if you are going to use misleading, old footage to make people frightened of Muslims, why stop there? Just go the whole way and use a clip from True Lies.”
