By Monday, numerous media outlets had debunked the viral false claim that President Joe Biden has proposed to restrict how much red meat Americans are allowed to eat. Even a Fox News anchor admitted on air on Monday afternoon that the claim was inaccurate.

Washington (CNN)By Monday, numerous media outlets had debunked the viral false claim that President Joe Biden has proposed to restrict how much red meat Americans are allowed to eat.

Even a Fox News anchor admitted on air on Monday afternoon that the claim was inaccurate.

Yet two days later, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy went on Fox News and repeated the nonsense.

McCarthy's comments show, yet again, that a false claim that has been introduced into the conservative media ecosystem can be hard to eradicate even after it has been proven incorrect.

Before the Monday debunkings, the claim that Biden has proposed a meat restriction was aired repeatedly on Fox and was amplified on Twitter by multiple Republican lawmakers.

But the study said nothing about Biden and said nothing about a government-mandated limit on meat consumption.
