Texas Gov. Abbott blames Dominion for Carlson’s firing

Gov. Greg Abbott (R-TX) is blaming Dominion Voting Systems for Tucker Carlson leaving Fox News (read story here). He’s knee-jerk reacting to an Axios report that Carlson was fired as part of Fox’s settlement with Dominion Voting Systems. Other reporting has portrayed Carlson as an out-o[...]

Rupert Murdoch’s last gasp?

It’s amazing Rupert Murdoch is still alive. Firing Tucker Carlson may be the only decent thing the 92-year-old has done in his entire long life, and as always, he did it for money. Rumor has it the old man got tired of the expensive lawsuits (to find out who the source is, click here). That&#[...]

Journalistic malpractice

Fox News is a money machine for its owners, not a dependable news source. If you listen to Fox, you’re being fed lies. We now know for certain that Fox’s management prioritized profits over honest reporting. And the revelations keep coming. On December 2, 2020, Fox News CEO Suzanne Scott[...]

Fox News is in serious hot water

Millions of Americans watch only Fox News, and don’t get news from any other source, which is a great big problem. It’s a great big problem because Fox is propaganda, not news. It’s brainwashing, not informing, its audiences. Its top opinion-shaper, Tucker Carlson, is a Russia symp[...]

Another example of why Fox is disreputable

Fox doesn’t do news, it does persuasion. Its talk shows, which are pure demagoguery, are by far its most popular fare. And its hosts are close-minded, intellectually dishonest pot-stirrers and hatemongers. They’re also liars. Take Laura Ingraham, for example, one of Fox‘s worst off[...]

Fox says Biden is too pro-Christmas!

For years, Fox Network’s hatemongers accused Democrats of waging a “War on Christmas.” That was always crazy, but it got people riled up, which is why they did it. Now Fox host Laura Ingraham is standing that meme on its head by complaining Biden is too Christmas-y. Read story here[...]

Fox and GOP stoke anti-LGBQT hate

A day after the mass shooting at Club Q in Colorado Springs, Fox superstar Tucker Carlson and Trump lawyer Jenna Ellis were busy inciting more gratuitous violence against LGBQT people. This is America, land of free speech, and they can do that, up to a point. Cross a line and you can be sued, as [&h[...]

Fox host pooh-poohs Pelosi attack

At what point does Fox take a host off the air for violating civilized standards of decency? Apparently there isn’t one. Granted, Fox News isn’t a news organization; it’s a rightwing propaganda platform, a purveyor of lies (Tucker Carlson admits it), and at times of hate; yesterday[...]

More proof Fox isn’t a news organization

Journalism, like other professions, has standards. Don’t call yourself a new organization if you don’t adhere to them. A new book by New York Times journalists says Fox personality Bret Baier tried to pressure his superiors to rescind Fox News’ decision desk call of Arizona for Bid[...]
