America Needs To Recognize Fox-So-Called-News As Propaganda

Thom plus logo Donald Trump arrived in London and immediately tweeted about how upset he was that he couldn't watch his beloved Fox News and attacked CNN. As former Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd has pointed out in a recent newspaper piece, Rupert Murdoch took over so much media in Australia that he destroyed the politics of that country, then moved to the United Kingdom and did the same there helping to elect conservative prime minister's for generations, and then he moved to the United States and inflicted his worldview on us through Fox, The New York Post, and the Wall Street Journal. Fox stands alone against every other news service in the world with things like climate denialism, support for tax policies that support the billionaire class, and deregulation that poisons our air and water.

Trump's unwillingness to even watch CNN should tell us everything we need to know about the tragedy of democracy that is being caused by our having a 24/7 propaganda channel as one of American's primary sources of information.

Hot coffee, as long as I am here I thought this may fit in with Hatrmann's biased philosophy.

New York Times bans their reporters from appearing on CNN and MSNBC shows It is said Don Lemon is throwing hissy fits all over town. Have a great one!

Hey Diane,

Watched a few minutes of Don the Lemon last week, he looks like he's on Pharma drugs Zanax, Ambien or something?

I saw that NYT article...NYT trying to save their butts!

Had to laugh even Glenn Greenwald couldn't take anymore...

Seems the Dems have to have their town halls on Fox now or no-one will see them.

Probably the only time Fox viewers don't watch Fox...lol

later!
