Right Wing Lies & Conspiracy Theories Are Destroying the United States

Featured Video Play Icon

The 2003 Fox v. Franken, “Fox-Can-Lie Lawsuit” established that Fox is not required to be truthful by law. Since Fox has established that they have the legal right not to be truthful, Fox Opinion Hosts often tells their conservative viewers what they want to hear… that Republican policies are good for this country, that Trump was a rational person & the best President ever and the MSM (Main Stream Media) is out to get him when facts show ALL of this is the exact opposite.

Many of FOX viewers are so brainwashed that they believe all other news outlets such as ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNN, New York Times etc are “Fake News”.

By telling their conservative viewers what they want to hear, they keep their viewers hooked. The more people watches Fox, the more money they can demand and bring in for advertising.

2 Weeks after the Election was called for Joe Biden, Fox Pundits cast doubt on the results nearly 800 times

“In the weeks after Fox News called the election for Joe Biden, the news network continued to cast doubt on the electoral process in a way that significantly amplified Donald Trump’s unsubstantiated fraud claims, according to a new report.

The Media Matters NGO tracked the claims aired on the network in the two weeks after Fox called the election for Mr Biden, and found that there were at least 774 instances when the channel questioned the legitimacy of the result in this period.

The claim that the election was stolen from Mr Trump – and that his supporters should therefore “stop the steal” – formed the basis for the deadly Capitol riots on 6 January, Media Matters said in a report, and “Fox News played a large part in fuelling that lie”.

“The network’s most prominent figures relentlessly attempted to subvert democracy by fueling conspiracy theories and spreading misinformation, rhetoric for which the network has refused to hold them accountable,” said the report.

In the days before the riots, Fox News host Lou Dobbs could be seen saying that it may be “criminal” for Republicans in Congress to uphold Mr Biden’s electoral victory, saying they were imparting a message to their constituents that they don’t really care if the elections were stolen.

On 3 January, three days before the riot, Fox News host Mark Levin could be seen telling his viewers that: “If we don’t fight on 6 January on the floor of the Senate and the House — and that is the joint meeting of Congress on these electors — then we are done.”
