Excerpts from World Affairs Brief, May 24 and April 26, 2019 by Joel Skousen:
Fox News Betrays Trump Again: Fox News continues to show its globalist colors. Chris Wallace, the son of globalist journalist Mike Wallace has been slowly losing his conservative facade because he is subtly sabotaging support for Trump. This week he hosted a live event with Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg, who hates Trump. The audience was packed with Democrats who in the end gave Pete a standing ovation. Wallace never grilled him on any of his bad policy positions and repeatedly used the endearing “Mayor Pete” to address him. As Business Insider reported,
[Trump freaked out at Fox News for hosting a live event with Pete Buttigieg, who got a standing ovation from the audience]
Buttigieg promised tax hikes on higher earners, and made a pitch for his 2020 candidacy. He also attacked Fox hosts Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham for their coverage of migrants. Trump was listening to the feed while waiting to be interviewed by another host and blasted Fox News, his favorite TV network, for hosting a town hall with Buttigieg.
Then yesterday, Fox let Jon Summers, former communications director for Sen. Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev write a scathing opinion piece against Trump. It’s time to let Fox News know you disapprove. They give more air time to the opposition than all the other Left wing networks do for conservatives (which is zero).
HAS THE LEFT TAKEN OVER FOX NEWS?
Thomas DiLorenzo asks that compelling question here, as Fox continues to air more “balanced” Democrat’s views like Hillary Clinton’s deceiver-in-chief, Donna Brazile.
So the Murdoch kids take over the helm at FOX News, and the first thing they do is to hire Donna Brazile, the Hillary Clinton liar/deceiver/political hack who admitted to giving Clinton debate questions in advance when she was employed as a Democratic Party propagandist by CNN (the job description of everyone at CNN). Then they gave Comrade Bernie Sanders an hour of air time for a “town hall” stacked/rigged with Socialists who cheered the old communist’s bloviations about medical care socialism.
Conservative FOX News fans say they were shut out of the “town hall” audience. They also gave hard-hitting conservative Judge Jeanine Pirro a good two-week spanking (figuratively speaking) for daring to say something mildly politically incorrect on her show that might have upset the social justice cupcakes (who don’t even watch FOX). Guests who dared to suggest that the Notre Dame fire might have been arson were shouted down and rudely cut off.
It looks to me like the writing is on the wall at FOX: The big financial rainmakers like Hannity and Tucker Carlson are probably safe for now, but many others who want to hang on to their big paychecks will have to toe the new line by trashing Trump as much as possible while praising such creepy D.C. establishment figures as Bob Mueller and his “legal team” of eighteen Hillary-worshipping/Trump-hating political shysters. It will take a while, but it looks to me like the CNN-ification of FOX has begun.
In reality, Fox News has always been compromised by globalist Rupert Murdoch, who bought Fox to Turn it into the “controlled opposition.” Murdock had to start out with making Fox a solid conservative network, although nary a hint about conspiracy was ever allowed to be uttered by a Fox News host.
That tactic built Fox into the most profitable cable news network in the world and attracted the largest conservative following in the USA. Then, slowly things began to change, as DiLorenzo pointed out above, but it is not because Murdoch’s two boys took over. It was always meant to misdirect conservatives, first away from conspiracy (by omission) and then through “balanced” views giving lots of air time to Democrats. The latter is OK when someone like Tucker Carlson counters every false claim, but the other hosts allow the Left’s propaganda “equal time.”
For example, if you listened to Fox recently, every host repeated the false Mueller claims that Russia interfered with the US election, even though there is ample information all over the internet from former intelligence professionals debunking that US claim, most of which was noted in last week’s brief. Fox made zero effort to counter this false intelligence.
This kind of deception is hard for many conservatives to detect—people masquerading as “conservatives” when they are really on the other side. …
