No particular comment - every so often I visit Fox

Every so often, I go to the Fox site to see what they are pushing.

The Fox folks are operating in a different universe. Their fan comments are similarly extra-galactic.

Be sure to disinfect appropriately.

I refuse to give them any clicks.

I do look at their chyron occasionally at the gym.

50% of the time it's propaganda.

if you watch them early in the morning you can see very clearly how they machine gun their viewers with simple soundbites and phrases, one after another, totallyrandom drop-ins in the scripts...something to chew on after they leave for work..check it out some time...it's pronounced and horrifying.

Was watching a shop tool video on YouTube this morning when THIS ad was inserted (it’s real!)…

The last time I saw a clip of Fox News:
"We've already seen that we're moving to an authoritarian style of government under the current administration..."
"We know that children do not...indeed, can not...carry COVID."

There should be a clear disclaimer before each program: "What you are about to see is propaganda. Any relationship between the information in this program and reality is purely coincidental." What they're doing is irresponsible and dangerous.

Yeah, the comments are hilarious. There are a few pro-ad comments, but those are rare.
