15 Years After The "Outfoxed" Documentary...



...social media is all abuzz by a New Yorker article by Jane Mayer reporting that Fox News is a corrupt, propaganda chop-shop.
The Making of the Fox News White House
Fox News has always been partisan. But has it become propaganda?
On the one hand, I'm glad Ms. Mayer's story -- rich with telling details as it is -- exists in the world.  And that fact that it was printed in The New Yorker has given it social media rocket fuel.

On the other hand, this feels so much like reading a weather report from 20 years ago that I don't know whether to laugh or cry.


Behold, a Tip Jar!

But wait, Partisan FOX host says Both sides.

Then says, MSNBC is partisan.

Then says they are not as partisan as CNN because they have Chris Wallace who asks tough questions.

Then says they are not partisan.

Look, driftglass, there's your socialist-liberal mere "regular" Obvious, which draws observations and facts from the world around it in the present, and then there's the Beltway Media Vomiting-Blood-Directly-Into-Your-Eyeballs Obvious, which draws upon facts and observations that have existed for 20 years.

And then there's the fact that Roger Ailes is currently only raping worms and maggots with his dick now, so it's safe for journo careers to dunk on Fox News during the election off season (but not in an election year, God Forbid we lose sweet eyeball money, hurry we need an autoplay video for every article Fackbook told me so!).
