Fox News / Lies Must Be Shut Down

I went to read to my wife "Fox News is a very powerful media organization, but it cannot stop people from dropping dead" from the #1 story on DU a couple minutes ago. She switched the channel to Fox. This is what we saw. Jaw dropping.

Some asshole on Fox was asking the woman Trump appointed to the U.N. He asked her if the worldwide health organizations who were supposed to stop things "like this" and "protect us" need something changed. The Trump Minion said Trump was doing a fantastic job and was blah, blah, blah.

Really. The WHO and the other worldwide health organizations are supposed to "stop pandemics" and "protect us". Really? With what? Jesus?

The poop for brains lemmings watching Fox are eating this crap up. Looking for anyone to blame for this nightmare except their Messiah Donald Trump. Cult Leader Trump.

Fox is dangerous, and is distorting everything. They had to stop calling it a hoax when the bodies started piling up.

They need to be ENDED.

I believe in freedom of the press 100%. They are not the press. They are the Republican Party and nothing more. Their distortions are killing people. Trump thinks he can get away with DOING NOTHING because Fox has his flank. Something needs to be done.

Sorry for edits. Not having a good morning.

1. So if you believe in freedom of the press 100%...what "something" do you suppose should be done?

And by whom?

3. When You Lie To People And They Suffer From The Decisions Based On The Lies They Heard

I call that damages.

Overwhelm them with lawsuits for starters.

Paid hosts on Fox was telling their minions the corona virus was a "hoax". They weren't reporting news, or interviewing guests that said this. They were saying it with paid staff.

4. +1. Free speech doesn't include the freedom to yell fire in a crowded theater and cause death.



If the communication willfully causes death because of lies, shouldn’t there be some kind of penalty?

5. The mainstream media needs to self police Fox News.

Other mainstream media outlets need to stop treating them like they are a news organization, and treat them like a propaganda outfit.
