How Fox News works

Recommended Posts

If we are closing our country to foreign nationals, can we deport Fox Nation? Ruling class somehow excludes the people who are actually, I dunno, President? Smh.

That's worse than the old Colbert Report joke. "President Bush. Great president or greatest president?".

3 outta the 4 shots of Florida Spring Breakers on last Fox segment were groups of black kids. The 4th was a rap concert with a bro-heavy crowd. They balanced it out by having a young, attractive black family physician for the interview. The previous medical expert was a young Ears, Nose, Throat specialist with cleavage and pretty sure some lip work.

Wonder what old Lou Dobbs is thinking now that he's had to self-quarantine?

He's thinking he's gonna blame it on Hillary and Pelosi.

Tonight on Lou Dobbs, our lead story:  was the Clinton Foundation behind the China-Benghazi Virus?   Is this why we never saw her emails?  Our all star panel, Oliver North, Dennis Rodman and Eric Trump’s mistress, are here with analysis.   But the answer is “yes.”  

Also, brown people - gross, right? You bet they are.  At the bottom of the hour Judge Jeanine will join us to answer the question that is on everyone’s mind:  is it really a crime to murder Mexicans?

It will end in April when it warms up, at least that’s what President Cheeto said.  And he’s an expert!

Holy shit. In Idiocracy, Costco was the big behemoth that ran everything. Frito went there for law school. In Trump’s Idiocracy, Fox News is where people go for their medical treatment. This is insane.

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.
 
 
 

Holy shit. I knew Fox News was the hive mind for these morons, but I had no idea it was anything like this. 

How much of this outright hostility to the rest of the MSM is Dotard's doing? I don't recall the right crying about CNN and the NYT all the goddamn time before Trump, although they have whined about the liberal MSM here and there my whole life. 

On Orangebloods you can't even reference CNN or NYT in passing without a cult member losing their shit.

She needs a little Italian mayor lecture in her life. Right up next to her face.

The bit about hair color was pretty on brand too. Blondes are only about 10% of the population IIRC.

honestly, it seemed run of the mill fox to me.

 

Seriously.  Hannity has basically said the same things on air.  Of course, he's #1 in their ratings.  I guess being a second tier former Bloomberg coorespondent doesn't put you in the untouchable category at Fox.

I come to this thread to laugh (cry?) at this bullshit, not to watch it. I’ll just assume she’s drunk on air.

I like how the broadcaster says, "we will continue with our coverage of the President's Rose Garden ceremony...erm...press conference."

Yes, yes that is a ceremony indeed. Almost Shakespearean. Act 5 Scene 5:

...Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player

That struts and frets his hour upon the stage

And then is heard no more. It is a tale

Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,

Signifying nothing.

I don't believe them. They might furrow their brows, but they don't care if they're sued.

After this is all over with Fox News will be off the air and bankrupt and the Murdoch’s will be fighting extradition to the United States to face charges for premeditated murder.

I wish I shared your optimism, but I suspect the Murdochs will survive intact. They may have jumped aboard the Trump train, but they will pivot on a dime if it behooves them.

trumkins won't blame Fox for anything.  They'll blame Nancy, Hillary and the Media, even as they drop like flies. 

This.

A certain class of character needs their fix. FOX gonna be the cockroach of TV.
