Home

During the 11 a.m. hour of news shows on CNN and MSNBC, hosts highlighted President Donald Trump’s selective outrage about recent reports of sexual assault by politicians amid long-standing accusations against him. Meanwhile, Fox News used the same hour to defend Trump’s failure to comment on accusations against Republican Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, despite the president’s statements about Sen. Al Franken (D-MN), who is also facing a report of sexual harassment.

‘The Arena Was Almost Empty’: Baltimore Reporter Goes To Bill O’Reilly Show And Finds Only 20% Of Seats Full | Crooks and Liars

During a panel discussion about O’Reilly’s reported $32 million sexual harassment lawsuit, Zurawik reflected on the fact that Fox News chose to renew the host’s contract even though executives were aware of the litigation.

“This speaks to the larger question of Fox News,” Zurawik said. “This doesn’t change Fox News. Twenty years of a culture that Roger Ailes established and that continued takes more than firing just the head of it. And now we see how deep-seated it is.”

Fox News is unusually focused on the nationality of the officer who shot Justine Damond (he’s Somali-American)

In its hyperfocus on Noor’s nationality, Fox News served to validate the racism, xenophobia, and debunked associations between immigration and crime espoused by pro-Trump fake news purveyors, conspiracy theorists, white nationalists, and notorious Islamophobes alike.
