Tucker Carlson gives friendly interview to police officer who said Black people “probably ought to be” shot more

Tucker Carlson interviewed Major Travis Yates of the Tulsa, Oklahoma police department.

Earlier this week, Yates had said in a radio interview that he does not believe systematic racism exists; he also claimed in that interview that Black people “probably ought to be” shot more by police. The Tulsa police department has subsequently opened an investigation into Yates.

Joe Biden discussed this phenomenon at a Thursday event, saying that because technological advances allowed millions of Americans to see Floyd’s killing on their phones, his death had a greater worldwide impact than that of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Over the hours that followed, Biden’s comment was ripped from its context and spun with fake outrage by pro-Trump right-wing activists and trolls, leading to a Fox & Friends segment Friday in which a Fox contributor falsely claimed that Biden had said Floyd “may have been a greater civil rights leader” than King.

“SAVE FOX NEWS.” It was a long letter, but the essence of it was restated in this post script, which read: P.S. The radical Left is trying to destroy Fox News and I need you to join me to fight back against the Left’s scheme today — before it’s too late. We cannot allow the radical Left to tear down and destroy Fox News — the only source of truth in our otherwise fake-news media.”

President Trump: Fox News is a propaganda outlet | Media Matters for America

Trump-Fox-Interviews.png

Trump is pitting the two halves of the network’s business model against each other. If its executives respond by making the network even more supportive, they are risking flight from advertisers and cable providers concerned with being too closely associated with the president. If they don’t, they are risking outlets like OAN, which has little interest in pretending to be a real news outlet, peeling off their viewers.

During Tuesday night’s prime-time Fox News schedule, hosts Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, and Laura Ingraham all bashed Dr. Anthony Fauci.

You knew this was coming after Dr. Fauci slapped around Sen. Rand Paul during yesterday’s Senate hearing.

It’s been a constant refrain from Fox News lately to make Dr. Fauci the fall guy for Donald Trump’s ineptitude and unconscionable lack of action when the outbreak was first discovered.

  • Murdoch Whitehouse- SACK THEM
  • On her Fox Business show, anchor Maria Bartiromo complained that the PPP provision “doesn’t make any sense to me” because the loan goes “right out the window to its employees, who are at home.” 

  • On America’s Newsroom, Bartiromo complained that there are restaurant owners who feel that the PPP loans aren’t going to “do anything for me once things open again because I have no revenue. Yes, maybe I save those people from being out of a job because I gave my employees the money, but for the viability of my business, that’s questionable.”

  • On Fox & Friends, co-host Brian Kilmeade asked Fox Business host Charles Payne about the “75/25” regulation. Payne said that he “reached out to the administration” to discuss the provision, but “they are saying they are not going to change that.” 

  • Fox & Friends hosted the owner of a Crunch gym franchise, who complained that the bill isn’t suitable for health clubs. Kilmeade told him that Congress “can’t tell you how to run your business, you have to tell them what it takes to run your business.” Kilmeade also claimed that “unemployment is so attractive now, a lot of [employees] don’t want their jobs back.”

  • On Fox & Friends, Kilmeade told Labor Secretary Eugene Scalia that “these restaurant owners can’t live with 75% [of the loan] going to labor” because “many of these people don’t want their part-time jobs back.” 

  • Kilmeade also made this argument on the April 9 edition of Fox & Friends, saying that if the goal is to help small businesses, “don’t make them take 75% of that grant money and put it towards employees, many of which don’t want those jobs back because they’re better off on unemployment.”

President Trump’s Fox obsession reshaped the political universe in 2019 | Media Matters for America

Donald Trump

No accident that this type of relationship was born in Australia as far back as the 1970’s with the destruction of Whitlam’s ALP. Rupert Murdoch went to America where he knew there was better ground on which it could flourish. From there he consolidated and refined his corrupt business plan and took it to the rest of the English speaking world. We can see him losing money in Australia. We saw him do an Alan Bond in the UK but America restored him and from there he prospers to the detriment of the notion of any COMMON GOOD> (ODT)

Trump sustained his well-documented fixation on the network, continuing his practices of giving the vast majority of his national televised interviews to Fox hosts, maintaining a revolving door between his administration and the company, and relying on Fox personalities for private counsel. He kept watching hours of daily programming from Fox News and its sister network, Fox Business, basking in sycophantic coverage from shows like Fox & Friends, Lou Dobbs Tonight, and Hannity. And continuing the Trump-Fox feedback loop, he maintained his habit of firing off hyperaggressive tweets in response to what he saw on those networks, sending 613 such live tweets this year through December 17.

But more than ever before, Trump’s Fox fanaticism this year drove the federal policymaking process and political reality, with a tangible impact on the lives of the American public.

Fox violates its edict not to name the whistleblower | Media Matters for America

fox-news-fb.jpg

Fox News doesn’t have, or doesn’t enforce, standards the way a normal news outlet does. Its hosts frequently buck the network’s purported ban on participating in campaign events, its efforts to limit abject on-air bigotry only highlights the horrific commentary it is willing to let slide, and its much touted wall between “news” and “opinion” divisions is extremely permeable.

And so when CNN reported on Wednesday that Fox hosts and personalities had been ordered not to identify the whistleblower whose complaint is at the heart of an impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump’s abuse of power, the question was not whether that edict would be violated, but when.

Fox News contributor Solomon linked to pay-to-play news operations | Media Matters for America

Now at Fox of course it’s all about the money. Back in the 60’s DJ’s were paid to play records to insure higher ratings on Billboard whch translated to higher sales it was called “payola” That cash flow was eventually stopped. How is it Murdoch and Roger Ailes were allowed to apply the same formula with the NEWS. These days the money isn’t delivered in brown paper bags. It comes in the for of NDA contracts. (ODT)

Recently hired Fox News contributor John Solomon, a key player in President Donald Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani’s disinformation campaign against Joe Biden and his son Hunter, is now facing further ethical scrutiny.

According to a new report from ProPublica, Solomon was involved in an apparent pay-to-play operation at The Hill, involving him courting a conservative group for a six-figure advertising deal and also quoting its director in the Hill’s news content.
