How Fox News works

Recommended Posts

It really is sickening how Fox 'shows' the House Managers speaking, but it's split screen with a live speaker talking about other things.  And just now, the House speaker showed a slide of a letter from GAO or whatever stating that Trump broke the law by withholding the funds, and Fox switched to a live view of the US Capitol building.  When the slide came down, they went back to the live view of the lady speaking.  (I was watching CNN, with Fox on the channel preview version).

And she is interviewing the President tonight on her show. I try very hard not to wish ill on others, etc, but that Fox creator Murdoch will be joining Ailes in hell.

Good for you.  I wish the worst for her.  I hope the next time she steps outside, lightning strikes her ass.  But I don’t want her dead...let her live on as a quadriplegic.  
And when I said strikes her ass, I mean literally her ass, hopefully later in life, that leads to ass cancer and she can live the rest of her days shitting in a leaky colostomy bag.

Yeeah, I get what the folks are saying about him simply being a weasel, but he gives off a Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil vibe only w/o the gun and South Carolina instead of Georgia. I don't know if something happened way back when he was stationed in Germany in the 80's that Putin 's KGB scooped up and held on to for later or something that happened stateside or what, but his popularity in his home state is shaky right now apparently.

If you turned on Fox News on Thursday night to catch the ongoing Senate impeachment trial of Donald Trump -- only the third time in American history a president has faced such a proceeding -- you were sorely disappointed.

Fox wasn't showing the trial -- as CNN and MSNBC were. Instead, Fox ran its usual primetime lineup of pro-Trump voices with the trial confined to a small corner of the screen, without sound. Sean Hannity, the network's flagship host, called the entire impeachment trial a "snoozefest." The previous night, when Fox again ran its primetime lineup rather than live coverage of the impeachment trial, Hannity noted: "If I were a terrible host. I would force you to endure watching the regurgitation, the repetition ... the insanity that has gone on all day." 

In each episode of his weekly YouTube show, Chris Cillizza will delve a little deeper into the surreal world of politics. Click to subscUnless you have spent the last few years on another planet, that programming decision won't surprise you. Fox has relentlessly promoted and defended Trump -- and he has responded in kind by showering its hosts with coveted interviews.
But what's terrifying about how Fox News is choosing to cover (or not cover) the impeachment trial is revealed in new polling from the Pew Research Center delving into trust (or lack thereof) in the media.

Asked to name media companies in which they have trust, 65% of Republicans named Fox News. One in 3 named ABC. And that's it. Not a single other news source was trusted by even 33% of self-identified Republicans in the Pew poll. 
 
That's in stark contrast to both Democrats and the population at large. More than 1 in 3 Democrats named 13 media sources they trust. The general public named 8: ABC (48% trusted), CNN (47%), NBC (47%), CBS (45%), Fox News (43%), PBS (42%), BBC (35%), The New York Times (35%) and MSNBC (34%). (Note: The pollsters went through 30 media sources with the respondents.)
 
200124113534-pew-research-news-sources-e
 
Now, consider what those numbers mean. 
 
A majority of Republicans (and Republican-leaning independents) don't trust ANY media company other than Fox News. And two thirds don't trust ANY media companies other than Fox News and ABC. The next 3 most-trusted media sourced among Republicans? CBS, NBC and, wait for it, the Sean Hannity radio show -- all of which are trusted by 3 in 10 people. Eighteen of the 30 media courses that Pew asked about were trusted by less than 1 in 5 Republicans and Republican-leaners.
 
Combine those numbers with Fox News's overwhelming viewership numbers among Republicans (60% get their election news from Fox; no other outlet gets above 30%), and the marked difference between its content and that of all the other mainstream media outlets, and you see a major reason for why we are where we are, politically speaking.
 
If you only trust one news outlet and that news outlet is telling a very different -- and factually challenged -- version of current events, a massive disconnect is created. It's not too much to say that Fox News viewers are occupying a different (and less fact-based) reality than the people who seek out other sources for their news.
 
And it is into that disconnect, that information void, that Trump has leaped -- and now resides. What Trump has done and is doing is use his own massive social media following to amplify the messages on national news offered by Fox News. Trump regularly tweets and retweets Fox News segments to his 71+ million Twitter followers. He often directly quotes from Fox personalities. He works to create a totally closed information ecosystem for his supporters -- and largely succeeds.
 
That so many Republicans believe a) Fox is the only network to be trusted and b) trust in Trump despite his demonstrated lack of concern for telling the truth allows both the network and Trump to succeed. But their success comes at a price. A big one. And one that we will continue to pay for years and years to come.

Quote

Conservative groups are trying to peddle conspiracy claims of voter fraud to undermine an election that doesn’t even involve Republicans.

Judicial Watch, a conservative advocacy group, put out a report on Monday claiming that “Eight Iowa counties have more voter registrations than citizens old enough to register.”

Iowa Secretary of State Paul Pate, who is a pro-voter-ID law conservative, refuted the claim on Twitter and linked to Iowa’s own numbers debunking Judicial Watch’s report.

Quote

Fox News’ own research team has warned colleagues not to trust some of the network’s top commentators’ claims about Ukraine.

An internal Fox News research briefing book obtained by The Daily Beast openly questions Fox News contributor John Solomon’s credibility, accusing him of playing an “indispensable role” in a Ukrainian “disinformation campaign.”

Quote

The document also accuses frequent Fox News guest Rudy Giuliani of amplifying disinformation, as part of an effort to oust former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch, and blasts Fox News guests Victoria Toensing and Joe diGenova—both ardent Trump boosters—for “spreading disinformation.”  

The 162-page document, entitled “Ukraine, Disinformation, & the Trump Administration,” was created by Fox News senior political affairs specialist Bryan S. Murphy, who produces research from what is known as the network’s Brain Room—a newsroom division of researchers who provide information, data, and topic guides for the network’s programming.

Stuck in an airport bar with Fox News on and I don’t think I’ve actually sat and watched it for a hour plus in a decade. It’s difficult to describe the insanity on the shows and the commercials. I don’t know which is worse.

And right after I type that they change the chyron to “media in denial over Sanders New Hampshire win” and now I am wondering why I don’t watch more Fox News.

I suppose if I had to watch Fox News, a bar would be a good place to do it. Sit there long enough and answering  their crazy rhetorical questions suddenly no longer seems as insane as when one is sober.

I belong to the local Elks lodge.  Cheap, cold beer.  Nice enough people.  I rarely go because every TV is always tuned to Fox News. 

I find Fox News offensive in general, but I find Fox News particularly offensive when there's a fucking game that could be on the TV instead.  It's a fucking BAR people.

She doesn’t want to appear on the other shows. She only want Hannity viewers to think that the Left networks and their viewers are closed minded, unlike them.

I also guess there is more to the story because she quickly says that even Fox’s Sunday show turned her down. Perhaps there were conditions on her and others appearances like statements only and zero questions.

If you are a Bernie supporter and realize you have adopted right-wing talking points, at what point do you hear Ding Ding Ding.
