    Is this Fox thing cutting through?

    That Hannity and the rest were disgusted with Trump and lied again like they did over COVID.

    Tucker called Trump demonic.

    Murdoch admitting it all in court documents.

    I guess since Fox isn't reporting it then none of their base will know about it?

    The world is so fucked up...

      Maybe if Newsmax or OAN runs the story, the right wingers will find out about it?

        Yeah but that's the problem isn't it? If people go to something even more toxic is that good? Also what you are calling right wingers is now tens of millions of people who have been radicalized by lies.

        You have all these millions of people not realizing that they are not watching a news channel they are watching a opinion channel that has become about basically click baiting them by making them more and more angry.

        In the UK we didn't get the removal of the 'Fairness Doctrine' for TV whereby Reagan ruined US TV news forever. Our newspapers though are a fucking nightmare and maybe worse than the US ones.

          Looking into this it will all probably fizzle out. Dominion is only an $80 million company so how can it prove $1.6 billion damages from Fox? They'll probably win a little and Murdoch will scapegoat a couple of employees and move on.

          It's striking that Murdoch is worse than Logan in Succession in so many ways...usually reality is milder than fiction.

            Reagan removing the Fairness Doctrine was bad, but Clinton passing the Telecommunications Act of 1996 was much worse. FAUX Noise literally could not have existed before that (and Newt Gingrich giving Murdoch a fast track to US citizenship). CNN existed, but it was owned by one guy named Ted Turner, not a succession of mammoth corporations. And NBC was owned by General Electric by then, which wasn't ideal, but far better than the Scumcast oligopoly, which itself was a relatively small cable company in Pennsylvania before 1996. Same with Sinclair Broadcasting, and Clear Channel radio, which ended up syndicating 24 right wing extreme radio nationwide. The only thing the Fairness Doctrine really did back in the day was if a radio or TV station took an editorial stance on one side of a political issue, the opposing side would have the opportunity to be heard on that same station. I can vaguely remember "point/counterpoint" dueling editorials on the local TV news shows back in the 1970s. Of course, being a kid at the time, I probably didn't pay that much attention to most of them.

              Fox News Is Reportedly Shadowbanning Donald Trump

              Donald Trump, who once dominated the Fox News broadcasts, is now running into a brick wall
              with what four members of his circle say is a “soft ban” from the top of the conservative news
              channel, as it rolls out the red carpet to even the low-profile rival candidates.

              Trump hasn’t been on Fox News since announcing his presidential bid in November. His last weekday
              appearance on the network was in September with host Sean Hannity. During that interview, Trump
              said a president could declassify documents “by thinking about it.”

                I honestly think that false information presented as fact is the biggest danger to humanity all of us and our kids.

                It's so much worse than most people realize. Whataboutery about CNN v Fox or whatever is just inane. If you go to a thread on the internet about Ukraine have you noticed all the African names supporting Russian fake news? A lot of the time that's China who are now offering these countries free media deals with the rule that they can only take their source of info. Also grabbing up all the world's lithium while our politicians have lost sight of the stuff that actually matters.

                You see it here with a poster like Nitro, a middle aged typical ex stockbroker average US Republican now starting to post pro Putin?

                    I'm on record as being against these goddamned "voting" machines overall, but if Dominion can take down FAUX, I'm not going to complain about that.

                          Cucker has so much RuZZian dick in his grubby mouth that he now oozes Putin's sperm out of his ears and eyeballs. This shit is taken right out of the FSB propaganda playbook. Fox Spews is 100% Kremlin-funded.

                            RuZZian propaganda and Fox Spews - you tell me the fucking difference. This RuZZian chick is the real deal. For one, she still has all her teeth unlike, say a fucking limey







                            Not much difference for the fascism Republicans wish for America eh, kids?
