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.
This week, many Conservative outlets and lawmakers began to turn against those Americans who have chosen to remain unvaccinated. Of course, plenty of Fox anchors have continued to refers to endangering one’s community as a “choice.”
One doesn’t have to be a rocket scientist to understand why the Delta variant is surging in certain parts of the country. The outbreaks are happening in red states where vaccination rates are lowest.
Over the weekend, Rep. Cori Bush (MO) noted that not all Americans feel the same way about the 4th of July. She noted on her Twitter page, “When they say that the 4th of July is about American freedom, remember this: the freedom they’re referring to is for white people. This land is stolen land and Black people still aren’t free.”
Networks at least attempted to give an all sides view of the news. It does, however create a very tough situation for Liberal commentators on Conservative shows and vice-versa.

The attack on the US Capitol last week was a first in multiple ways. Of course, the attack was unprecedented. But the assault on Democracy also represented the first time where almost all Republicans were willing to admit that Donald Trump did something bad.
Donald Trump is on his way out of the White House looking like a bit of a loser. The president would much prefer to leave office on a high note. Time and time again he’s attempted to take credit for the COVID-19 vaccines. It hasn’t worked out for him.
Donald Trump started taking coronavirus seriously, so Fox News suddenly flipped and is freaking out over the virus.
Guilfoyle exclaimed, "Just kill them all and close Gitmo, that's fine. They don't have to come here, they don't have to stay there.".
Welcome to The Friday Fox Follies, a new weekly feature at PoliticusUSA. Each week Headly Westerfield will wrap up the Fox "News" tomfoolery and shenanigans (as the dictionary defines those words) into one neat little package with a bow.
During Thursday's broadcast of Fox News' Outnumbered, co-host (and longtime sufferer of Obama Derangement Syndrome) Andrea Tantaros spouted off that resigning Attorney General Eric Holder ran the Department of Justice "much like the Black Panthers would."
