The Lincoln Challenge known as out Fox Information for realizing that Trump dedicated sedition crimes, however now not appearing the 1/6 Committee hearings.
The Lincoln Challenge stated in a press unlock previewing the 1/6 Committee listening to supplied to PoliticusUSA:
No person must be shocked that FOX Information refuses to hide the hearings since they aren’t a significant information channel. Their very own attorneys concede Tucker Carlson engages in ‘non-literal observation’, and can't be taken critically.
FOX actually can't have the funds for to have its audience understand the reality about January sixth: that it was once sedition. If their audience realized the onerous reality, the fog would elevate and they'd see that FOX Information promotes the Giant Lie to extend scores and become profitable off their audience’ lack of knowledge.
On January sixth, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, and Brian Kilmeade all attempted to get Donald Trump to name off the protesters. They knew then, and so they know now, that the assault at the Capitol was once performed via Trump supporters and was once now not an act of patriotism, however a criminal offense of sedition.
Fox’s plan to hide the hearings, however now not duvet the hearings via shifting protection to Fox Industry, and most effective speaking about them outdoor of primetime isn’t fooling somebody.
Fox Information is aware of that Trump was once engaged in seditious crimes. The texts from their very own hosts to Mark Meadows are evidence in their wisdom. Fox has no credibility. Tucker Carlson admitted that he lies on his display. When Fox will get sued they at all times indicate that their primetime lineup is leisure, now not information.
Fox is aware of that Trump is answerable for 1/6, but they're going alongside for the propaganda journey, as any group that may be a danger to American democracy would.
