Murdoch continues to provide human garbage with a platform to spread his filth
Trump said, “We have hundreds of thousands of people coming in from Haiti.” That’s a lie. He continued, “Haiti has a tremendous AIDS problem. AIDS is a step beyond. AIDS is a real bad problem. So hundreds of thousands of people are coming into our country and if you look at the stats, you look at the numbers. Just take a look what’s happening in Haiti. A tremendous problem with AIDS.” What stats and numbers is he quoting? The Russian Trump Tower memos? Does Trump believe a person catches AIDS from a handshake or a cough? “Many of those people probably will have AIDS, and they’re coming into our country, and we don’t do anything about it. We let everybody come in. Sean, it’s like in a death wish. It’s like a death wish for our country!” What a garbage human being Donald Traitor Trump is.
The Fox correspondent claimed to have reached out to the FAA for clarification on the reason for the flight restriction. However, the FAA directly contradicted Fox News’ story. An FAA spokesperson told Media Matters, “FOX News never reached out to the FAA’s press office yesterday at any point. The first contact between FOX News and the FAA was after the FAA press office saw the report. A statement was sent about an hour after the report aired.” Nevertheless, Fox immediately began weaving a conspiracy theory that the FAA is “trying to keep Fox News from covering what is happening” at the Texas bridge:
When Fox News turned to Bret Baier for comment shortly after the conclusion of Tuesday’s hearing of the House select committee investigating the January 6 storming of the U.S. Capitol by pro-Trump rioters, the network’s chief political anchor was adamant that it would be impossible for anyone to downplay the devastating testimony heard that day. Over the previous several hours, four police officers had described in searing detail how they had risked their lives defending Congress from a violent, bigoted throng that sought to halt the counting of electoral votes formalizing President Joe Biden’s election. “If you were watching, you saw compelling, at times damning, emotional testimony from these four officers who fought the line to try to protect the Capitol and the lawmakers inside,” Baier said. Highlighting the officers’ descriptions of how they “fought to hold on to their lives,” he added that while Republicans are trying to argue that the investigation is politically motivated, “you can’t watch the testimony and say that’s not a big deal.”
A debunked conspiracy theory linked to former Trump White House chief strategist Steve Bannon and his billionaire benefactor, Guo Wengui, was picked up by Murdoch-owned Australian news media and eventually landed on five Fox News shows — where it even reached the ears of a member of the U.S. Senate.
What’s missing is the the UK in identifying the award accurately. Australia Day Awards are awarded to Australians which Murdoch isn’t. They aren’t awarded by foreign organizations intending to boost the image of foreigners. Particularly when the title of the said organization is a false flag. (ODT)
Rupert Murdoch has accused social media platforms of creating an ideologically driven atmosphere of conformity, garnering applause as well as accusations that his vast media empire is guilty of the same crime. In a pre-recorded acceptance speech thanking the Australia Day Foundation for honoring him with a lifetime achievement award, the Fox News owner expressed dismay over a “wave of censorship that seeks to silence conversation, to stifle debate and ultimately stop individuals and societies from realizing their potential.”
Bill Sammon, senior vice president and managing editor at Fox’s Washington bureau, announced his retirement to staff members on Monday. On Tuesday, as part of a restructuring of Fox’s digital operations, politics editor Chris Stirewalt was let go.
In the run-up to the insurrection, Quinnipiac found that 77 percent of Republicans believed there was widespread fraud in the presidential election. They bought into the absurdities spread by Trump and his enablers in right-wing media. That is what fueled the atrocity of an insurrection. And still…the lies continue.
Right-wing grifter James O’Keefe and his organization Project Veritas — along with its more political arm Project Veritas Action — are known for infiltrating progressive organizations, campaigns, and nonpartisan institutions and heavily editing recorded undercover footage to allege wrongdoing. In 2020, in a repeat of their efforts from past election seasons, O’Keefe and his group tried to spread various narratives about supposed voter fraud through dozens of videos released before and after the presidential election. Most of these claims were debunked quickly, but not before they were picked up by right-wing media and viewed millions of times on Twitter and YouTube.
In the nine days after Fox News declared Joe Biden the president-elect, the network has cast doubt on or pushed conspiracy theories about the election results at least 574 times — 208 times on Fox’s “straight news” shows and 366 times on its opinion shows.
Fox executives have lined up behind Carlson before. Lachlan Murdoch reportedly gave personal support to Carlson after he went on an anti-immigrant rant in 2018. The Murdoch family knows exactly what Carlson stands for, and it’s exactly what they want the Fox brand to stand for.
Carlson has long been billed by Fox as a member of the network’s “entertainment” side. In September, a federal judge wrote, quoting Fox lawyers, that Carlson’s show “is not ‘stating actual facts’ about the topics he discusses and is instead engaging in ‘exaggeration’ and ‘non-literal commentary.'” U.S. District Judge Mary Kay Vyskocil found that no “reasonable viewer” would take Carlson seriously.
President Donald Trump over the weekend used his massive platform on Twitter to again spread the outrageous and unsupported insinuation that Joe Scarborough — one of his most vocal critics on TV —murdered someone.
