Did anyone see the

Hannity video where he flip flops on Mueller? After calling the Times piece a distraction, then retracting. The funniest part was using a car chase as a distraction... squirrel l!!!lmfao

Hannity is today’s version of Joe McCarthy.

Not even close.

McCarthy was a US Senator who had real power.

Hannity is just a slick talking con man.

I can just imagine what is going through his head when he had to report that FAUX News had confirmed the report.

I watched the guy years ago a few times, when he sang the praises of GM cars. Then came the bail out and he went into a hysterical frenzy about the cars he previously loved. What a hypocrite.

The problem isn’t just that Fox News sometimes presents patently false narratives, but that its audience is addicted to it—often to the exclusion of other news sources.
Trump remains popular among HIS BASE thanks to the powerful media bubble created by the network--Fox News.
But there are bigger issues. 1) Even voters who are NOT addicted to Fox News--who don't watch all day every day--HEAR the "news" from a friend or neighbor and of course we KNOW what happens when we play "Telephone". The story becomes more tangled and less true. 2) The president's base, including Fox News, HAS TO LIE for him, then are caught in their lies. Maybe "LIE" is too strong a word so let's use the word "explain". Consequently, THEY (Fox News) set themselves up repeatedly as an unreliable source. Unfortunately, credibility doesn't seem to be their concern....AND THIS is a YUGE problem for me.

Obviously, there are people who simply don't care about their integrity. AND THAT is something I just can't fathom. What kind of parent raises their child to intentionally be dishonest? A cheat? AND what adult wants to be seen like that, in the eyes of his/her children, family and friends....?
Thanks from iolo

I seldom watch live TV, but yesterday I had bought a new antenna for one of my wife's TVs and for an instant, I saw the FOX News channel, and as luck would have it, it was news time. FOX News was reporting on the "fake news" channel, CNN.

I had to let that sink in for a moment. FOX was reporting on CNN, telling its viewers that CNN reported fake news, just like the rabid base "knows" already because the president of the US has been telling everybody about the fake news reporting of CNN and others ... well, not just others but every other news source except his twitter account and FOX.

That's insane.
