“Halloween is Ruined”. Fox News Insiders Nauseous About Trump/Putin Coverage

October 31, 2017

Advice. Consider a real job. Your soul will thank you.

CNN/Money:

Some employees at Fox News were left embarrassed and humiliated by their network’s coverage of the latest revelations in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian election meddling, according to conversations CNN had with several individuals placed throughout the network.

“I’m watching now and screaming,” one Fox News personality said in a text message to CNN as the person watched their network’s coverage. “I want to quit.”

“It is another blow to journalists at Fox who come in every day wanting to cover the news in a fair and objective way,” one senior Fox News employee told CNN of their outlet’s coverage, adding that there were “many eye rolls” in the newsroom over how the news was covered.

The person said, “Fox feels like an extension of the Trump White House.”

The employees spoke to CNN on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly on the matter. A Fox News spokesperson declined to comment.

On Monday, it was revealed that President Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort and another associate Rick Gates had been indicted by a grand jury on 12 counts, including conspiracy against the United States. Unsealed court records also revealed that another Trump associate, George Papadopoulos, had pleaded guilty to making a false statement to the FBI weeks ago.

The revelations jolted through the news media, and Fox News did cover it as its top story. But in contrast with CNN and MSNBC, which aired non-stop rolling coverage throughout the day, Fox News found plenty of time to cover other topics, like the NFL protests, North Korea, and tax reform.

There’s more. recommend the piece for your amusement.

Of course, Fox has a nauseating record on climate science as well.

    A Dickinson University study a couple of years ago showed that watchers of Fox news, when tested, knew even less than those who watched no news at all. Negative IQ’s. I’d’a said that was IMPOSSIBLE, but in today’s America…?


    • I remember stumbling over a segment on climate featuring Joe Bastardi a few years ago on Fox. It was a real “what the f” moment for me. He didn’t even make sense, let alone convey any useful information. If that was the sole source of climate information for viewers, it could certainly damage your I.Q.!

    Then quit already. These people don’t realize they are working for a propaganda outfit? Sheesh. Any minimum wage job in the USA must be more respectable than working for FOX.

    Well, that’s a relief. For a moment there, I thought this coverage affected the moral sensibilities of actual people.
