Let's talk about the real elephant in the room... [View all]

It is called PROPAGANDA.

FOX News was fined $787,000,000 for practicing the fine art of propaganda, otherwise known as lying to the people.

And they have now doubled down and are back at it again. They are not the only ones but they are the leader amongst all the right-wing networks.

They should be treated differently by actual "news" networks, than they have been treated, up to this point.

Who are these liars that attack our democracy and defend the wannabe dictator? They are busy from daylight to dark attacking (not criticizing) our democracy and our leaders with lies. They falsely claim to be a "news" network but they are nothing more than an arm of the Republican Party, but only in so far as they support Donald Trump.

Other networks tend to live and let live. They don't criticize FOX as propagandists or liars or a political arm. They may dispute one of their moderators on occasion but if there are actual news people, in my opinion, they should go all out against the liars at FOX News. They have been getting a free ride since they were found guilty and fined almost a billion dollars for their lies. They need someone to tell the truth about them.

If they cannot stand the heat, maybe they cannot stand the First Amendment?
