Your support of the program is invaluable. Producing the Thom Hartmann Program is a labor of love for the team, but doesn't come without cost. We supply the program to non-profit, community and volunteer radio and cable stations across the US. However, this isn't cost-free and being a supporter through Patreon means you can help us to meet some of the bills, to allow us to continue free supply to the non-profit sector.

As a way of saying thank you, we would like to give you something back for your support at various levels. Every weekday, the live Thom Hartmann Program three hour program is recorded exclusively for Patreon supporters. Unedited, the full three-hour video will be right here on the Patreon page, within a couple of hours of the end of the live program. And we're also providing extra videos exclusive to sponsors.

America you've hit a milestone in television history, October 7th marked 20 years since FOXsocalledNEWS first went on the air in America. Believe it or not , one of the most divisive media channels to ever go on the air in the US, now has almost a hundred million viewers.

Launched by a right wing neocon Australian Rupert Murdoch and run by former Republican talking head and CNBC executive and serial sexual predator Roger Ailes, its CEO for the 20 years, the fraud who preached Fox News was the home of family values and Christian America, only later to be fired after it was found out Ailes was an abusive sexual predator.

As for Fox spending that last 20 years making Americans stupid, a study at the University of Maryland proved that a fact.

"World Public Opinion, a project managed by the Program on International Policy Attitudes at the UNIVERSITY of Maryland, conducted a survey of American voters that shows that Fox News viewers are significantly more misinformed than consumers of news from other sources. What’s more, the study shows that greater exposure to Fox News increases misinformation.

So the more you watch, the less you know. Or to be precise, the more you think you know that is actually false."
