3. Journalsm major here.

Fix News was not ever intended to be a legitimate news source.
Right leaning would be fine. All conservative content would be fine.
But, thatís not what they were and are about.
I have studied it and written about it many times.
Iíve read reports of former employees.
You can not compare them to anything else in our history.
A man like the Australian Murdoch with his ownership f satellite companies to give him carriage.
And, it wasnít just the content with absolute disregard of the truth or the facts.
It was the packaging that also made them a joke.
The wide shots of the attractive women required to wear short skirts.
The bells and whistles of the graphics and sound effects.
The silly slogan of fair and balanced. Even if true, not a journalists role.
Seeking the truth wherever it leads? Nope.
But, we let it happen because they called themselves A News network.
I could call myself Brad Pitt. Wouldnít make it so.
