A 'Slow-Moving Scandal' Involving Donald Trump And Fox News

Is anyone else not surprised that Fox is hiding the truth of Trump from their viewers .. its a cult.. there is no other way to describe it.. A cult leader will do the most insane things including telling people they need to feed poison to their children (Jim Jones) and they do it..The Magas are under cult control.. and the way to keep them in control is to keep doing crazier and crazier things to destroy their own belief system and accept only what the leader says

"Former GOP strategist Stuart Stevens acknowledged Fox News “can try not to show this and hide it” but suggested to Wallace that “it’s a long time to the election and a lot of people are going to start paying attention that aren’t paying attention now and I think it’s going to be impossible to hide the difference” between Trump and President Joe Biden.

Stevens also predicted Biden “is going to win this thing easily” because Americans, he said, will become more focused on what is truly at stake come mid-October."

2. I'm not so worried about voters. I think the vast majority of Americans wouldn't vote for trump under any

circumstances. What I AM worried about is the vast republican conspiracy to destroy this election in states where there is a republican majority in control of the levers of power over elections.

There are so many plans afoot to stop the certification of votes, or to taint the votes, through one method or the other, with and/or without foreign help, and then get their cases before the corrupt supreme court if necessary. THAT is my concern.

4. And you would be right to be worried because "they" have to cheat to win in large sections of America.*

The “shit they’re selling” is not popular with the majority of Americans so they need to cheat,
have a corporate media that “shills for them,” and a Federal Judiciary whose #1 job is protect
them.

Ohio is so dirty it is not funny. After Obama won this state twice the republican Sec. of State
have purged millions of democratic voters and they gerrymandered the state to the point that
just about every congressional race is over before the 1st vote is cast.

There’s no question that Fox manipulates what they call the “news” to advance the Republican agenda. This is what people should be complaining about instead of the real journalists at the New York Times and MSNBC who have ethics while Fox does not. Fox (as well as the rest of the right wing media) is the real danger to this country. Fox, though, is a little slicker than Newsmax and the rest. They have already caused considerable damage in the years since they’ve been on the air. They were instrumental in getting Trump elected in 2016. And even with the big judgment they paid out last year, they haven’t stopped their continual lying to the American public. We should rightly be extremely frightened and angry about what they do.

5. I totally agree. The media is what allows the rich to have the entire country protect them: police, military, judiciary.
