that FOX News is the greatest threat to our nation,
then you are an idiot. I mean that with conviction.
Before Trump there was Sarah Palin and Herman Cain.
The issue is this: As long as Fox is brainwashing people en masse, there will be a never ending lineup of Palins or Trumps to endure.
And don’t give the “both sides” bullshit. The nation is about to go full fascist and I don’t play that shit with this much at stake.

Why don’t you just come right out and call Fox viewers “deplorables”?
Nothing like hearing one brainwashed group blast the other brainwashed group.

is not a very effective way of communicating.
His body recovered from his torment and became hale,
but the shadow of his pain was in his heart;
and he lived to wield his sword with left hand
more deadly than his right had been.

I don’t think there is a bright line to be drawn and evident between news outlets spreading disinformation and biased interpretation, based on supposed political affiliation, any more. CNN is just as full of shit.

For one thing, we’ve been Fascist since both Democrats and Republicans passed the Patriot Act. Trump just ripped the mask off, and Biden is incapable of putting it back on.
As for threats, let’s see. Accelerating climate change. The Second Great Depression. Hunger. Deteriorating supply chains. Donald Trump. Joe Biden’s potential Cabinet. Mitch McConnell. Nancy Pelosi. All billionaires. The police. Idiotic armed militia groups. A failed health system.
Let’s just say we’re already a failed state. Fox News has done it’s share, but your claim is sheer partisan hyperbole. And calling me an idiot is a pretty stupid way to persuade me to your point of view.

Biden’s mental health is absolutely fine. If you think otherwise, its because you have fallen for Russian propaganda. The fact that he can’t finish half his sentences, his endless gaffes, his word salad, his pony soldier style outbursts, its all a Russian smoke and mirrors ploy to denigrate Scranton Joe. If you trust your own eyes and ears, you are a useful idiot.

It’s been shown, that FOX viewers are LESS informed about the world around them. Instead of an informed electorate, they are engineering a stupid electorate, and judging from the results of the 2016 election, that engineering is having results.
The misinformation and opinion of MSNBC and CNN is less damaging IMHO.
Let me make an analogy to a lung cancer patient. MSNBC and CNN are telling the patient “don’t worry about that cough, the Russians have added coughing powder to your water”. FOX News, on the other hand, actively denies that smoking causes cancer and is recruiting a new generation of smokers. None of them care that a lifetime of smoking has led to a terminal disease, and none of them will let anyone air the opinion that the country should take care of cancer patients instead of bankrupt them.
The big problem of democracy is when stupid, misinformed people vote in large numbers. If it was just a matter of picking out which misinformation to disregard, that would be one thing, but picking out misinformation requires thinking, and that is the one thing that stupid people just can’t do. We’ve had 40 years of experimental evidence that “tax cuts pay for themself” is wrong, but stupid people continue to believe it because FOX keeps telling them so.

Corporate media only spew forth the so called news that makes them a profit. If it destroys democracy and makes for ignorant citizens they don’t really care. It’s all a result of our destructive economic system.
Instead of government censorship we have corporate censorship.
