Fox News apologizes after Eagles' Zach Ertz blasts national anthem 'propaganda'

The press secretary responded: "If it wasn't a political stunt by the Eagles franchise, then they wouldn't have planned to attend the event and backed out at the last minute".

Kenney's statement said that the Eagles team "embodies everything that makes our country and our city great" and that the players "represent the diversity of our nation - a nation in which we are free to express our opinions".

The President also noted that numerous Eagles weren't planning to attend the White House ceremony.

Police in Tennessee say a woman, identified as Leimome Cheeks , was charged after mobile phone video emerged of the incident. Skylarr Blake, Cheeks' neighbor, told WATN that Cheeks was a "nice lady" and that he couldn't "see her doing that".

Eagles tight end Zach Ertz called out Fox News on twitter Tuesday morning. The Eagles were in fact one of seven teams that did not have a player kneel for the anthem at any point during the 2017 season.

"We love our country, we respect our flag, and we always stand for the national anthem - we always will stand for the national anthem", Mr. Trump said at the event. "I will be there at 3:00 p.m. with the United States Marine Band and the United States Army Chorus to celebrate America". In an interview on Fox business channel, Trump said, "Tweeting is like a typewriter - when I put it out, you put it immediately on your show".

"I think we need to focus on what's important and in this case we have a sports team from Philadelphia who are world champions and I think we should take pride in that, especially the way they went about it", Courtright said.

Mr Kim's itinerary was reported in detail, which is a rarity for the state's media, according to South Korea's Yonhap news agency. AP media relations director Lauren Easton said that the outlet was "troubled" by the press' limited access to some of the events.

The statement from President Trump cites disagreement on the national anthem, and Huckabee Sanders herself said in a statement today the team "offered to send only a tiny handful of representatives", accusing them of trying to "abandon their fans". A source close to the players told CBS News that fewer than 10 players committed the attending the White House event.

In response to Trump's allegations, former Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Torrey Smith noted an Eagles player did not kneel last season. Safety Malcolm Jenkins raised his fist as the anthem played, while other players stood arm-in-arm or with their arm around Butler in solidarity.
