Morning Joe ridicules Fox News ending caravan coverage: "But smallpox is coming to America!?"

Morning Joe viciously mocked Fox News’ sudden dearth of caravan coverage immediately after the midterm election occurred on Tuesday. On the day that followed the election, the story of Central American migrants approaching the US border got barely any mention on Fox News, which stands in stark contrast to how it was covered in the weeks before.

In the month running up to Tuesday’s midterm election, conservative media outlets delivered extensive coverage of a “caravan” of migrants making their way to the southern U.S. border. Thousands of Central Americans were presented by right-of-center pundits and reporters as “invaders” despite the fact they were nearly 1,000 miles away and traveling by foot.
