Filmmaker embedded himself in migrant caravan, found it’s nothing like what media is telling you

A filmmaker who embedded himself within the migrant caravan traveling to the U.S. southern border discovered that the group is “highly organized” and well-funded.

Filmmaker Ami Horowitz discussed with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson his trip to the southern Mexican state of Oaxaca where he filmed the migrant caravan heading to the U.S. border.

“What we do know is this whole thing cost millions and millions of dollars. The mainstream media, and there are so many layers of this onion to peel back, it’s hard to know where to begin,” Horowitz told Carlson.

“One of the lies the fake news if you will, that the mainstream media is trying to propagate is the fact that all this weird organic thing and all the water and the food and medicine, all dropped from … manna from heaven,” he added.  “It’s baloney. It’s all highly organized. It’s paid for by a number of organizations, we don’t know exactly where the money is coming from.”

“Despite the framing of the caravan as being full of women and children, the reality on the ground is quite different, “Horowitz said in the video documenting his trip.

“Why haven’t other news organizations gotten to the bottom of this? You’re one man, you’re doing this independently. Why isn’t NBC News or ABC or PBS, why aren’t they on this?” Carlson asked the filmmaker.

“You know the answer to that,” Horowitz replied. “They don’t want to get to the bottom of this. They have no interest politically in getting to the bottom of it.”

“The same reason why, when you see a photo in The New York Times or The Washington Post or a video on CNN or the BBC or MSNBC. What do you see? ” Horowitz asked. “The entire framing are women and children when the reality is so far from the truth: 90-95 percent of all the people in this caravan are men. Although I do apologize for assuming their gender.”
