Hoax: Donald Trump, Fox News, and the Dangerous Distortion of TruthHoax: Donald Trump, Fox News, and the Dangerous Distortion of Truth by Brian Stelter
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Biased? Maybe, some. However, there isn’t much you’ll hear that isn’t true. That’s a bit contradictory, but there it is, and if you listen, I believe you’ll agree. This book names names. Hannity, Ingrahm, Carlson, Dobbs, even AG Barr. Where are the lawsuits for libel? Crickets. It’s all true.

His base will not believe a word.

Hoax covers the Trump/Fox relationship well before his inauguration, early in the campaign, through the COVID pandemic. Slowly, insidiously, the entire staff of Fox became completely obsessed with getting the ear of Trump, repeating whatever they said, propaganda or not, lies or not, in Tweets and policy. Ratings rule. Nothing else matters. NOTHING. The poison at Fox is the reason why legitimate broadcasters left the station, like Shep Smith and others, many behind the scenes. Commentator access to Trump makes you indispensable. Hello, Hannity. Daily phone buddies.

America is governed by Fox commentators, Trump is an obsessive viewer and they know it, as they often speak directly to him, and he usually does what they suggest. President Trump is the president of Fox News listeners – NOT America, he never has been. Fox viewers are 24/7 watchers, hear no other viewpoints, and are deeply Indoctrinated into a cult-like obsession. Frightening.

Jim Jones or David Koresh have nothing on Trump. He’s the same type of leader and has created a zombie-like following, using the Fox commentators and viewers..

Shame on you, Fox. Shame.
