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.

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[...]

Why should anyone take Fox seriously?

Parsing today’s dramatic Jan. 6 testimony, Fox News commentator Martha MacCallum remarked (story here), “I’m not sure that it really shocks anybody that the president, just knowing what we’ve seen, observing him over the years if he got angry, that he might throw his lunch.” While [...]

More proof Fox is a propaganda, not a news, network

Veteran journalist Chris Stirewalt (bio here) “was working Fox News’ decision desk on Election Night 2020,” and called Arizona for Biden, before any other network. That incensed Trump and his allies, and Fox fired him for it. “Stirewalt’s reporting was totally accurate,” [...]
