What we have been witnessing with Fox News, News Max, OAN, and the privatized media is that their business models have made them the Organ Grinders Monkeys. Driven by the need for the dollar they have sacrificed truth for the Autocratic Capture of the American narrative, the “Big Lie” and Right-Wing messaging. Yes, they have done a Trump, become ratings-driven, and are now anybody’s for a price. As we know money flows from the top down, not up, is generally reactionary, and is in the hands of an oligarchy. Trump knew that, but couldn’t really manage it as he’s just an old-school grifter, and not really a politician. However, now darker forces are at play and working on the Autocratic Capture of the very electoral process state by state trying to turn America away from Democracy to a single party-run Autocracy the likes of Hungary, Russia, and Turkey. Who claim to be Democrcies because they have elections too!!

“What Steve and Jonah did in giving up compensation and a high visibility post was to put their money literally where their mouth is,” Stirewalt said, adding, “What Fox allowed in Tucker Carlson’s documentary, which said that January 6 was potentially a false flag operation undertaken by the federal government and that Americans were being put in Guantanomo over pictures of waterboarding, was beyond reckless and is another mile-marker down the road to the kind of Alex Jones-ian, Infowars-ian garbage that makes it impossible to have any kind of conversation.”
