21. That sounds like the most logical explanation

It‘s one thing to show Bugs Bunny on a cartoon station. It‘s quite another to claim the Easter Bunny is real on a station calling itself a news station.

3. It actually walks a pretty good tightrope

It's not saying that Trump is wrong, which they will probably never do. Depending on which side you're one, you're going to put your own spin on it. We're going to look at it as, "Whoa, look at FOX going against TFG." His cult will look at it as a reminder of who cost them their leader.

knew he was going to lie, but they still broadcast his words ?

Or a former ambassador or senator "Ambassador So and So" and "Senator So and So".

19. A google search reveals no references to 'President' Jimmy Carter without a 'Former'.

Except at the Carter Center, which I feel is appropriate.

But, then we almost never see him blathering away above a scroller.

22. I tend to refer to President Carter, President Clinton and President Obama

But never have used that title for the former guy unless it's an actual title of an article. Those three actually won their elections to earn the title - not to mention that I voted for all three of them.

23. None for President Obama, either.

In a news search. Except for, interestingly enough, Billboard, an entertainment site. Like Faux claims to be in the civil court room.

But, those were all popularly elected Presidents. There needs to be some additional bonus to the honor of serving a popular majority.

32. "Same reason we call Jimmy Carter "President".

Americans are unique in that. In Canada, and I assume, in other democracies, we would refer to a former Prime Minister as......wait for it........ former Prime Minister.

I guess its a nod of respect, but I always thought it was a bit odd.

Dignitaries retain their title after leaving office or retiring.

13. I assume this is a CYA maneuver to stave off lawsuits.

They want to be able to carry TFG's blather without appearing to endorse his unfounded accusations, in the hope that the voting machine companies won't be able to sue THEM based on HIS claims. Will it work? IANAL, so I have no idea.

That said, I love seeing this happen on Fox Noise, regardless of the reasoning behind it. I feel like his credibility is being slowly and steadily chipped away at, and this is one more tiny chip.

35. His credibility will wither and blow away in the wind, but . . .

he will leave behind a strong legacy of divisiveness, hatred, racism, ignorance and willful delusion that may well signal the end of the American dream. The Founders all believed in a Republic whose citizenry was well educated and well informed. They would have considered a high school diploma as evidence of education, and a trained and open mind seeking out diversity of opinion as being well informed. Boy, were they wrong!

75,000,000 voted for Flubbo the Loser a second time. I cannot see that as anything but a sign of hopeless fragmentation and ultimate balkanization, not on ethnic but on intellectual and moral grounds.

The Left argues among itself over moral and ethical issues -- because the Left takes those issues seriously.

The Right isn’t burdened by such things and so, like a person deprived of conscience (or who has simply shucked off conscience) can lie with impunity, praising the Lord of Love while characterizing a murderous mob as everyday tourists, dissuading their own constituents form getting vaccinated against a disease that has killed 600,000 Americans in a year and a half, passing voting restrictive laws in response to a never-existing problem with massive voter fraud.

The 75 million worship at the altar of a sociopath and his paranoid-delusionary ministers, while those ministers and their plutocratic donors all laugh out loud amongst themselves about the suffering caused by their governmental negligence and by their outright deliberate attacks on the non-wealthy. (“No, no, no, no,” said Ex=Senator and marginally human being Rick Santorum, “we do not want to do the will of the people.” And the GOP voters all nudge each other with a drooling grin and say “Now there’s a man who knows what America’s all about!”)

I haven’t given up on Old Glory -- but I may, after the 2022 elections, if things do not go as well as they should for the Democrats.

20. Instead of the disclaimer, "Fair and Balanced" Fox should

invite Dominion and Smartmatic for an on-air chat about vote "flipping"


Oh wait... only a "news" station would do that.

“Voting system companies have denied?” Bullshit! How about “There is no truth to the irresponsible claims of the former guy.”

I do not think Dominion will be satisfied with 49 secs. of truth.

33. Why have these voting machine co's not sued Trump himself?

Surely he is one of the most, if not THE most, harmful to their business reputation. He continues to thumb his nose at them, and is the biggest reason that a majority of Republican voters think he won.
