Fox News under fire for wrongly claiming Kamala Harris broke protocol by not saluting military

Experts are calling out Fox News after they slammed Vice President Kamala Harris for not saluting members of the US Military, wrongly saying she had “repeatedly failed” to meet precedent.

The outlet argued that her predecessors, former Vice President Mike Pence and President Joe Biden, regularly saluted the honor guard.

However, military experts were quick to fact-check the broadcaster, pointing out that Ms Harris is not in the chain of command and is therefore not required to salute.

Tom Nichols, a professor at the US Naval War College corrected the report, saying it would be “incorrect” for her to salute and saying the broadcaster “knows this.”
