Fox News Is Now a Threat to National Security
'The networks furthering of lies from foreign adversaries and flagrant disregard for the truth have gotten downright dangerous.'
Mondays split-screen drama, as the House Judiciary Committee weighed impeachment charges against President Trump and as the Justice Departments inspector general released a 476-page report on the FBIs handling of its 2016 investigation into Trumps campaign, made one truth of the modern world inescapable: The lies and obfuscations forwarded ad infinitum on Fox News pose a dangerous threat to the national security of the United States.
The facts of both dramas were clear to objective viewers: In the one instance, theres conclusive and surprisingly consistent evidence that President Trump pushed Ukraine to concoct dirt on a domestic political rival to affect the 2020 presidential election, and in the other, Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz found that the FBI was proper to investigate Trumps dealings with Russia in the 2016 presidential campaign.
But that set of facts is not what anyone who was watching Fox News heard. Instead, Fox spent the night describing an upside-down world where the presidents enemies had spun a web of lies about Trump and Ukraine, even as Horowitz blew open the base corruption that has driven every attack on the president since 2016.
Sean Hannity, who had long trumpeted the forthcoming inspector general report and expected a thorough indictment of the behavior of former FBI director James Comey and other members of the deep state, had a simple message for his viewers during Foxs Monday night prime time: Everything we said, everything we reported, everything we told you was dead-on-center accurate, he said. It is all there in black and white, its all there.
it's time to get some noise out there about boycotting their advertisers.
Fox has Constitutional rights. So do the rest of us.
Im of the opinion that they have been a threat to national security since the day they first aired. Their complicity in the run up to Shock & Awe pretty much cemented my view.
Exile them to to a far away land with no way of returning to the USA.
who vote for impeachment were reprehensible. I think it's time that the FBI pay him and the FUX legal staff a visit.
If any other citizen issued threats to Congressmen, the FBI would be knocking on their door with a battering ram.
Hannity is out of control and has gone to insane lengths to promote his fruitless fantasies.
