Just Because It's Trending Doesn't Mean It's True

Donald Trump's war on Fox News got even uglier Thursday when the GOP presidential frontrunner tweeted a fake photo of anchor Megyn Kelly with Saudi Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal.

Trump, who has called for a ban on all Muslim's entering the United States, was making the point that the prince is a "co-owner" of Fox News.

"Google It!" the tweet's pic suggests. But a Google search shows the photo is fake and the prince owns just 7% often the news company.

Trump is boycotting the Fox debate because the network refused to release Kelly, who the billionaire accuses of being biased against him, as a moderator.
