The message from Fox is quite clear: Trump is going to win, and if he doesn’t, the reason is because of voter fraud by Democrats.

Where the blame lies FOX News

Yes Trump was an amplifier trivializing Covid-19 but never forget he was amplifying Murdoch media his primary PR company. Include Sinclair Breitbart and others in the excercise

The president of the United States is one of those members of the Republican base. He learned about the virus through Fox’s dismissive coverage and refused to take steps to protect himself and those around him from it. And now he has it.

Fox News spent crucial weeks minimizing the danger posed by the novel coronavirus COVID-19 in order to protect President Donald Trump, and recent polls show that the network’s viewers are less likely to be concerned about it than other major media audiences. Top Trump administration officials are now praising the network for its coverage, even as Fox comes under fire from other outlets for endangering the public by actively spreading misinformation about the virus.

Impeachment Witness Rips GOP & Trump — Framers Would Be 'Horrified'

We all know why that’s not what Trump said, though. And we all know why Fox News is telling its viewers to tune out of the Impeachment hearings. They are all very, very afraid of witnesses like Prof. Pamela S. Karlan.

It’s a reoccurring theme in the Trump story: The president tries to do something but ultimately is not effective enough to actually get it done. So, should we penalize him for those attempts? Does the attempt . . . reach that bar for Congress to remove the president?

Right-Wingers: Carlson Gets A Pass Since Media Matters Used... Research!

Media Matters has now released clips and transcripts of Tucker Carlson making racist remarks on a shock-jock radio show, a day after exposing Carlson’s misogynistic and pro-pedophilia remarks on the same show. But according to conservatives, everything Carlson said should be ignored by the public — not because the clips and quotes are fake (they aren’t), and not because they’re out of context (they aren’t), but because they were discovered using (gasp!) research.

Here’s Mike LaChance at William Jacobson’s blog, Legal Insurrection:

These audio clips didn’t just fall out of the sky. The people at Media Matters went looking for them. They sat and combed through hours of audio looking for something to use to target Tucker and his Fox News show.

So these clips are fruits from a poison tree! They should be stricken from the record!

Former Fox executive Bill Shine quits White House after Trump reportedly complained that he was misled about Shine by Sean Hannity

The show goes on Sine wasn’t sacked he didn’t resign he was shifted sideways to deflect attention that from the fact that Murdoch runs the White House.(ODT)

Trump reportedly “feels he was sold a bill of goods by Hannity” about Shine’s abilities, “but Trump needs Hannity and so he will never attack him publicly”

Former Fox News executive and Roger Ailes’ “right-hand man” Bill Shine has left his job as White House communications director to join President Donald Trump’s 2020 re-election campaign as a senior adviser — despite reported complaints from the president about Shine’s poor performance.

The president of the White House Correspondents’ Association says the apparent end of the daily White House press briefing “sets a terrible precedent”.

US President Donald Trump tweeted on Tuesday that he told White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders “not to bother” with the daily briefing.

The small chorus of pro-Trump figures defending his disastrous presser with Putin

Nonetheless, a group of Trump’s most ardent supporters in the media rejected the overwhelming consensus and defended the president:

Fox’s Jeanine Pirro: “What was [Trump] supposed to do, take a gun out and shoot Putin?”
Fox host Sean Hannity praised Trump for being “very strong at the end of the press conference.”
Infowars host Owen Shroyer on the press conference: “It just kept getting better in time.”
Conservative radio host Mark Simone: “The whole idea of a summit is to make peace. That’s what he was doing there.”
Fox host Laura Ingraham admonished “mass hysteria” in reaction to the press conference and downplayed Trump’s performance as involving an “unfortunate word choice.”
Fox’s Tucker Carlson attacked media for their reactions to the press conference and said it seems like politicians critical of Trump’s actions toward Putin and Russia “seek increased conflict with Russia.”
Breitbart’s Joel Pollak: “A day after the media/Democrats/NeverTrump meltdown over Trump-Putin summit, they’re still wrong, the world’s still here, and the future is bright.”
Breitbart’s Charlie Spiering: “Remind me, did Obama forcefully confront Putin for” the 2014 attack on a Malaysian Airlines passenger flight over Ukraine?
The Washington Times boosted comments from former Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX), current host of the web show Liberty Report, who categorized Trump’s meeting with Putin as “significant diplomacy.”
