Re: Fox News Alert! (A Fox News Thread)

Fantastic piece in the New Yorker chronicling Fox's rise and the close ties between Murdoch and Trump.

The Making of the Fox News White House
Fox News has always been partisan. But has it become propaganda?
By Jane Mayer


https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2...ws-white-house

There's a lot of good stuff in here, but here's one section that summarized the two men quite well.

Trump became famous, in no small part, because of Rupert Murdoch. After Murdoch bought the New York Post, in 1976, he was introduced to Trump through a mutual acquaintance, Roy Cohn, the infamous legal fixer, who, as a young man, was Senator Joseph McCarthy’s chief counsel. Cohn saw the potential for tabloid synergy: Trump could attain celebrity in the pages of the Post as a playboy mogul, and Murdoch could sell papers by chronicling Trump’s exploits.

In private, Murdoch regarded Trump with disdain, seeing him as a real-estate huckster and a shady casino operator. But, for all their differences, the two men had key traits in common. They both inherited and expanded family enterprises—an Australian newspaper; an outer-borough New York City real-estate firm—but felt looked down upon by people who were richer and closer to the centers of power. As Edward Luce, of the Financial Times, has noted, both men have tapped into anti-élitist resentment to connect with the public and to increase their fortunes. Trump and Murdoch also share a transactional approach to politics, devoid of almost any ideology besides self-interest.

Re: Fox News Alert! (A Fox News Thread)

Personally I thought this was the big takeaway:

When Shine assumed command at Fox, the 2016 campaign was nearing its end, and Trump and Clinton were all but tied. That fall, a FoxNews.com reporter had a story that put the network’s journalistic integrity to the test. Diana Falzone, who often covered the entertainment industry, had obtained proof that Trump had engaged in a sexual relationship in 2006 with a pornographic film actress calling herself Stormy Daniels. Falzone had worked on the story since March, and by October she had confirmed it with Daniels through her manager at the time, Gina Rodriguez, and with Daniels’s former husband, Mike Moz, who described multiple calls from Trump. Falzone had also amassed e-mails between Daniels’s attorney and Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen, detailing a proposed cash settlement, accompanied by a nondisclosure agreement. Falzone had even seen the contract.

But Falzone’s story didn’t run—it kept being passed off from one editor to the next. After getting one noncommittal answer after another from her editors, Falzone at last heard from LaCorte, who was then the head of FoxNews.com. Falzone told colleagues that LaCorte said to her, “Good reporting, kiddo. But Rupert wants Donald Trump to win. So just let it go.” LaCorte denies telling Falzone this, but one of Falzone’s colleagues confirms having heard her account at the time.

One is we except her ghastly deal, the second is we delay. The third is we exit, on WTO terms. And we are out, we are free. We are clear. Even if there are some bumps in the road,” Farage told FOX Business’ Stuart Varney on Wednesday.
This must be the worst spelling error I have ever seen on any commercial site.

All of that shit is propaganda. When you hear the same fucking crap, coming out of both Liberal and Conservative readers, you know it's an agenda. Unfortunately, most don't cross-check the commentary. Why? Well, that would make one very uneasy. If you're Lib or Con.

My question is...what is REALLY going on in the nation. We have thousands of stories happening and still, only a few are making headlines. It did not used to be this way. The media has too few owners.

Best thing, would be to split these big media companies up, and declare them a monopoly on American mentality...and a disgrace to human interest stories.

Thanks, you proved my point. Only one side is wrong and your side is only immaculately correct.

That's quite a generalization there, but at least we can both agree that Fox is wrong.

I see what you're doing here.

But, I will take it for face value, yes, we technically both agree Fox News is propaganda.

Karate Chop or not...did he touch the woman. I don't think it means much except the world has a few less social media shitholes to smell. Which isn't saying a lot.

Maybe some of the other ones can lock up shop as well.

Sadly, Fox isn't condeming him, and his only response to this is:
"if you want to know what I think, you can watch. Anyone who disagrees with my views is welcome to come on and explain why."

I don't think he thought that through. Last I looked, about half the replies on twitter are people wanting to take him up on the offer.

Enlarging the nose of a Jewish guy to cartoonish proportions and darkening rings under his eyes. Just like the good old days.
