Fox News Contributor Jessica Tarlov took Jesse Watters and Dan Bongino to school on the topics of the murder rate and gun deaths versus knife deaths on “The Five." The panelists were doing a segment about America’s supposed “crime surge” and Watters showed how murder rates in other developed countries are lower than in the United States. Tarlov pointed out that those other countries don’t have a rampant gun problem like America has, which Watters immediately took issue with. He fired back, “people can still kill you with a knife, go down to Brazil.” Jessica responded, “I lived in the UK a long time where people got knifed all the time and it’s still nothing close to our murder rate.” Then Tarlov delivered a finishing blow to the conversation, which is that “the data that we’re talking about is 2020, those are the Trump years, so all of this blaming on President Biden that’s happening now — actually, under President Biden’s watch, the murder rate has even gone down.” She then went on to explain that the FBI crime data show an increase to violent crimes across all regions in the US, not just liberal cities. Therefore, the uptick in crime cannot be attributed to policies like bail reform and defunding or reforming the police. It’s good to see some truth get out on Fox News, even if it is for only a few seconds while the messenger is being shouted over and ignored.
