VIDEO: Fox News Host Blasts Broward Sheriff, Says Deputies being Directed to Defend Him

In an "Ingraham Angle" report, Fox News host Laura Ingraham blasted Broward County (FL) Sheriff Scott Israel and aired a purported internal email that directed employees to defend him.

Ingraham said the email was given to her by a source and that its veracity was "confirmed" by a second source.

It urges all staff members to vigorously support Israel as he "find[s himself] up against a flurry of media allegations."

"He stood with us, and now we must stand with him," the email reads.

"The focus should be on getting to the bottom of what happened [at the Parkland school shooting]," Ingraham said. "[It] shouldn't be about saving [Israel's] job."
