“What has happened to Fox News?”
The question has been asked by many over the years, especially following the 2017 death of CEO Roger Ailes.
The list of inexplicable decisions have been mounting to the point where viewers have been left scratching their heads in confusion.
We can begin with the hiring of disgraced CNN analyst Donna Brazile. Keep in mind that Brazile has had some issues with integrity and honesty as she first leaked townhall questions to the Clinton Campaign back in 2016.
The revelations came from Wikileaks who were able to obtain the information pointing to her leaking the questions ahead of time through a phishing email scam perpetrated against John Podesta. Just a helpful PSA, folks, don’t click on every email that is sent to your inbox.
Brazile then called Wikileaks “sad a** whipper leakers try to slow my groove.”
She continued to lie about leaking the questions, then used her gender and religion as a means to claim that she is actually a victim,
“As a Christian woman, I understand persecution. I will not sit here and be persecuted because your information is totally false.”
It was almost a full year later that she finally admitted to the fact that she did indeed float the Clinton Campaign the questions ahead of the event.
When asked if she had any regrets, Brazile casually said that she would have invested in better cyber security.
“If I had to do it all over again, I would know a hell of a lot more about cybersecurity.”
The implication there is that she would still be unethical and dishonest, but that she would work towards hiding her actions better.
THIS was the person that Fox News decided that they had to have and hired in March of 2019.
Yet this is only one instance of Fox News’ straying away from the motto “Fair and Balanced.”
What do you think? Is Fox News still a trusted name in news for you?
