Fox news is ..., " the closest we've come to having state TV."


Nicole Hemmer, an assistant professor of Presidential studies at the University of Virginia’s Miller Center and the author of “Messengers of the Right,” a history of the conservative media’s impact on American politics, says of Fox, “It’s the closest we’ve come to having state TV.”


From Jane Meyer's article today of how Fox was involved in helping Trump win the election.

2. indeed, if donnie were to create state tv and, naturally, privatize it, the result would be foxnews.

4. Worse yet, Fox employees are now running the WH



Fox 's Bill shine is now Trump's deputy chief of staff, he and Hannity have been buddies and intertwined family friends for decades, they are very close.
Hannity is now inserting himself into Trump's life, travels with him, they talk on the phone every damn night after Hannity 10 pm show, and during the day.
It is no longer possible to know if what Trump says or does is led by Fox news or not.

For Democrats, they’re 24 hours of lies and oppo-research.

7. It sure helps explain why the Republicans in congress won't utter a word of disagreement

with Trump. They don't want the machine that has brainwashed their base turn it against them.
