This could be a good thread to chronicle the ridiculously overblown or downright made-up ‘scandals’ that Fox News will hurl at the Biden admin giong forward.
Fox News really seems to be coming hard out of the gate with both barrels blazing (to mangle a metaphor). Now that their main mission is to attack the admin in charge, and not fawn over and be apologists for trump, I think Fox is back in its comfort zone.
This exchange I found yesterday is telling: they’re attacking the first presser with Press Secretary Jen Psaki, saying the press is throwing softball questions, and making it a big sinister conspiracy of Biden colluding with the press to make all nice and shut down transparency to the people or something. Also, how unfair it is compared to how awful and mean the press was to trump. Quote:
“Half of this country adores what President Trump had to put up with,” Schlapp opined. “The persecution of Trump and his supporters with impeachment, it is terrible politics for Joe Biden. If he wants healing, stop the madness.”
Stop the madness…really?
The left-leaning pundit on the interview Nomiki Konst was incredulous, saying “what planet are we on? It was the FIRST DAY. Psaki was basically introducing herself”.
Fox: but but but, trump didn’t get a honeymoon.
Konst: the Biden admin is treating the press like they’re reporters, not the enemy of the people from day one.
It’s worth a watch to experience the manufactured outrage:
