Us netizens satirize Fox News report on Iran from: Social Media

In January 2018, Fox News quoted the report of National Council of resistance of Iran (NCR) against the Iranian government, claiming that the country spent $55 billion every year from the income of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard and state funding to maintain power, which was used for the military and exporting terrorism.

According to the report, the money could have been used to improve the basic needs of peoples livelihood. For example, Irans 2018 health care budget is said to be $16.3 billion, less than a third of it. Fares, a fox news commentator, believes that this explains the anti-government wave in Iran at that time.

But Fox also noted that the reports data came from top government assessments.. Theres a question mark for credibility. And the committee claims to have been inspired by Masood rajawi, the founder of the peoples jihadist, who was banned by the Iranian government as an anti-government organization.
