If you woke up from a coma on Wednesday afternoon and viewed Fox News or checked the website of the network, you would forgive yourself if you had no idea that the country is grappling with a pandemic that kills tens of thousands of Americans and that leaves millions of unemployed more.
Fox News hosts such as Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham have supported the new developments as part of the alleged “OBAMAGATE” scandal that the network has promoted in recent days with President Trump. Network anchors, such as Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum, have also improved history. And during the day, softball interviews were given to Republican Senators Rand Paul and Ron Johnson, who so far have both refused to appear on CNN.
Online, the Fox News homepage highlighted articles on the subject, barely mentioning the coronavirus or chaos that destroyed the nation and the world. It looked much more like the front page of the far-right Breitbart website than a credible news organization.
That Fox News pushed a dishonest disinformation campaign against Trump’s political opponents is reprehensible, but not surprising. The network has been pumping poison into national conversation for some time. But that Fox is doing this as over 83,000 Americans have died of a virus that has upset American life is particularly repugnant.
And while it may be tempting to ignore all this and wipe it out, there is real news here: it is that the President of the United States, in collaboration with a large American network, is polluting the information wells during a pandemic to distract from bad news. and increase his reelection efforts.
Hannity launches herself against the judge in the Flynn case
“You’ve failed him since day one and you’ve had an injury since day one,” Hannity says. “It stinks of ignorance, it stinks of political partiality. So Judge Sullivan, you and you only from this day on are responsible for continuing what was a parody of justice that destroyed four years of life of an American hero, and it is time for a new venue and a new judge and someone unlike you who has no political bias. “

Limbaugh explains Trump’s Maw strategy
“‘Oh my God. Tony, you should apply for a job,’ and then privately ignore everything damned he says and implement your policy,” added Limbaugh. “This is the only way to do it.” The caller asked Limbaugh if Trump will pursue this strategy. “I think it already is,” Limbaugh replied.
