- The Washington Times - Tuesday, June 5, 2018

Fox News is under fire Tuesday after the network aired images of the Philadelphia Eagles kneeling in prayer while an anchor discussed President Trump canceling the team’s invitation to the White House. 

Critics say the package makes it appear as if the Eagles are protesting during the national anthem — with Eagles tight end Zach Ertz calling the piece “propaganda.”  

Fox News apologized Tuesday morning.

The network issued the apology after fans took to Twitter to voice their displeasure:

The Eagles did not have a player take a knee during the national anthem during the regular season or playoffs last season.
