In 1789, Thomas Jefferson wrote that “wherever the people are well informed they can be trusted with their own government.”
Fox’s business model is antithetical to Jefferson’s vision. It makes billions by challenging the nation with an existential question:
Can democracy die from too many lies?
Fox News makes money by telling its audience what it wants to hear, even if Fox knows it’s a lie. The settlement preserves its lucrative business model.
