Occasionally, real time catches up with Fox News.

It happened in 2012, when several Fox News personalities predicted that "Romney was gonna win in a landslide" days before the general election. (Jon Stewart had a field day)

And it's happening right now with the Coronavirus. On the occasion of WaPo's release of side-by-side commentary by Fox News "personalities" from 10-12 days ago versus this week, #FoxNewsLies was trending on Twitter.
