The Deadly Fox News-Trump Syndicate — Robert Reich
Former Secretary of Labor Robert Reich exposes Fox News’ endless circuit of lies. As the coronavirus crisis rages on and protests against police killings and centuries of Black oppression sweep the country, Fox News is contributing almost as much to the deaths, disease, and brutal treatment of protesters as is Trump’s White House.
Trump spouts a shocking amount of misinformation from his bully pulpit, but it’s Fox News’ equally misleading coverage of the dual crises that closes the lethal circuit of lies.
Fox News called white protesters with AR-15s demanding haircuts “patriots”; they called Black protesters demanding an overhaul of our racist systems of oppression “thugs” and “looters”. And their biased coverage of the protests hasn’t stopped them from continuing to spew lie after lie about the coronavirus pandemic, even as the death toll surpasses 100,000.
Trump’s propaganda machine is a clear and present danger to the United States. It’s up to us to shut it down.
