Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) claimed she would “shut down” any telecommunications companies if they comply with a request from the House Select Committee for phone records of lawmakers who participated in the “Stop the Steal” rally ahead of the January 6 insurrection.
The job of the anchors on Fox News has never been to accurately report the news. At least not for the last few years.
Fox has figured out that the best way to keep the GOP in power is to constantly make their viewers angry. And the network’s outrage machine is now very focused on cancel culture and “wokeism.”
Kayleigh McEnany did not exactly develop a sterling reputation when she served as Donald Trump’s press secretary. During her first day on the job, she promised to never lie. She broke that promise on a number of occasions.
Over the last number of years, 3 different presidents have had the opportunity to finally pull troops of out of Afghanistan. This month, Joe Biden became the president who actually did it.
In explaining his actions, the president told Americans, “After 20 years I’ve learned the hard way that there was never a good time to withdraw U.S. forces. I am president of the United States of America. The buck stops with me.”
After the disastrous presidency of Donald Trump, it can be easy to forget that Kamala Harris is the country’s first female Vice President. The anchors of Fox News, however, have not forgotten about her gender.
Amazingly enough, despite a readily available vaccine, the country is now going through another wave of COVID-19 cases.Hospitalizations and deaths are up, especially in red states where far fewer people have been vaccinated.
The personalities on the Fox News network know that many of their viewers are not vaccinated. And they’ve done everything they can to let the unvaccinated know that they have no problem with their stance.
Wednesday was a big day for vaccine hesitancy promotion on Fox News. In the afternoon, Maria Bartiromo got the former president involved. Donald Trump told Fox Business viewers that booster vaccine shots are only being pushed so medical companies could make more money. And during the evening, host Will Cain doubled down on his COVID misnformation from last night.
Fox News personality Mark Levin claimed that the Taliban, which has over the last few days seized control of Afghanistan, “gave safe harbor” to former President Barack Obama.
“When the hell is the media in this country, or the flunkies who sound like the media in this country going to get over this?” he said of the media’s coverage of the Taliban takeover without citing any evidence. “They’re an evil people. These people attacked us. They gave safe harbor to Obama. They now control Afghanistan. They didn’t even control the northern part of Afghanistan.”
Will Cain spent a number of years working at ESPN. But it never seemed like sports were his true passion. So in 2020, he left the sports giants to become a host over at the Fox News network.
Cain quickly fell into Fox’s main talking points. He has opined on Fox culture war topics like Critical Race Theory. He was also infuriated that the terrorists who stormed the White House on January 6th were being referred to as insurrectionists.
Conservative media had a rapid pivot when it came to the events in Afghanistan yesterday. During the afternoon, Fox hosts wondered how Joe Biden could treat our allies in Afghanistan so poorly.
But during the prime time hours, Fox’s chief racists, Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham began to hammer away at the incoming refugees. Ingraham wondered why we owe the people of Afghanistan anything at all. Tucker Carlson told his viewers that Afghani’s would soon be invading their neighborhoods.
The Delta variant is raging in Florida. And the state is nearly setting daily records for cases of COVID-19. One might never know how bad it is, though, if they paid attention to governor Ron DeSantis.
Today, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo resigned from his post. The popular governor was partially taken down by his own party. Democratic Attorney General Letitia James led a probe that found Cuomo has sexually harassed people within his employ.
The rules of cable news have been very clearly drawn. It is very rare to see a Conservative lawmaker appear on MSNBC. In turn, it is very rare to see a Democratic lawmaker who is willing to appear on Fox News.
Many of today’s Conservatives like to compare Democratic policies to historical events or works of literature. This was most evident with
Marjorie Taylor Greene. On multiple occasions, the controversial GOP Rep. attempted to compare mask mandates to Nazi Germany.
Things cost much more these days then they did back in the 1980’s or 1990’s. As prices have inflated, though, salaries haven’t. In 2018, the Pew Research Center found that for most workers, real wages have been stagnant for decades.
With COVID cases raging in red states and GOP governors doing nothing to help, Fox News personalities are looking for scape goats. Despite the fact that Fox viewers are less likely to get vaccinated, Fox claims that they are not the problem.
The 8-10 PM block of Fox News has long been a breeding ground for crazy opinions. But after facing competition from channels like Newsmax and OAN, Fox has decided to double down on the crazy.
The 7 PM slot of Fox programming is now populated by people like Maria Bartiromo, Brian Kilmeade and Trey Gowdy. That group also includes Ben Domenech who is mostly known for plagiarism and being Meghan McCain’s husband.
Mary Trump and Meghan McCain both come from very famous families. McCain, on one hand, has used her family name to get high profile jobs in show business. Trump, on the other hand, has distanced herself from her family as much as possible.
An awful lot of Americans have refused to get vaccinated so far. As a result, the pandemic is continuing to grow, especially in areas with large pockets of Republicans.
Fox News, of course, doesn’t want to blame their viewers for their failure to get shots. So instead the network has continued to push hesitancy towards the vaccinated. And plenty of attempts have been made to blame Blacks and Hispanics for the surging caseload.
