Let’s first bear in mind how on Jan. 4, 2021, Sen. Josh Hawley argued in opposition to Fox Information hosts about how the twelfth Modification permits Hawley the ability to overturn the votes of hundreds of thousands of People he doesn’t agree with.
You would possibly bear in mind these superb few weeks between November when Fox Information was the primary to name Arizona for Joe Biden by till late January, when it grew to become clear that the GOP was going to commit each supporting Donald Trump and his tried coup, and attempting to downplay the truth that what had occurred was a failed coup d’etat. They did present a few of the committee listening to, although. That’s one thing.
However that was short-lived. That is what really occurred through the listening to.
Tucker Carlson, lengthy gone by the trying glass, has been throwing out the type of disinformation about the events of Jan. 6 which may as soon as have gotten even fake newscasters fired. Throughout Thursday’s listening to, when the Jan. 6 committee confirmed the receipts of Trump’s anti-democracy strategist John Eastman asking for get-out-of-jail-free playing cards after the failed coup, Fox Information went with this angle.
To be clear, they designed their protection very strategically.
However the lion’s share of what Fox Information covers is how finest to be racist and sexist all on the identical time. Do you know Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez doesn’t converse Spanish? You didn’t? After all you didn’t, foolish billy, as a result of it isn’t true. Do you know that the “Hispanic group” needs nothing to do with electrical automobiles? You didn’t? See above. Nicely, MTV’s Actual World alumni Rachel Campos-Duffy, finest identified for being married to fellow MTV Actual World alumni and former Wisconsin Rep.

However as soon as once more, take into account this truth.
