Anyone who believes that Fox is a legitimate news network is too stupid to be allowed to vote. Since 1996 Fox has been a propaganda machine for the right-wing. Their ‘fake-reporters’ praised every Republican while denouncing anyone who was viewed as liberal. The fake-news network was so successful many Democrats refused to use the word ‘liberal,’ instead of being proud of the history of progressive leaders, most notably Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
When Donald Trump won a rigged election, at least the Electoral College part of the process, only a few legitimate journalists employed by Fox treated him somewhat fairly; one resigned from the fake news network just days ago. Most, including Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson, Laura Ingraham, Jeanine Pirro, and the others continue to kiss his humongous derriere.
The truth is Trump could not exist without the assistance of Fox Noise. Tens of thousands of lies and multiple violations of the Constitution would have forced his removal from office. If the truth was told by all television “news,” he would have only a few loyal followers who share his beliefs in white supremacy, xenophobia, homophobia, and misogyny.
If, and hopefully when, Trump is impeached, Fox will very likely continue to support him. This will be the end of the most divisive organization in America. Nobody will miss the trash created by Rupert Murdoch and Roger Ailes.
