promotion of fear and lies

Fox News Channel: 25 Years Of Promoting Hatred, Bigotry, Lies, Fear, And Evil!

Fox News Channel, the purveyor of hatred, bigotry, lies, fear, and evil, is now celebrating its 25th anniversary, being created in 1996.

It has poisoned the media environment, and allowed demagogues to prosper, including, most notably, Donald Trump.

Their evening news anchors, past and present, have done great harm to the concept of truth and the need for cooperation and unity to deal with the problems the nation has faced in the past quarter century.

Such horrendous individuals, including Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson, Laura Ingraham, and Judge Jeanine Pirro, along with many others past and present, have misled Americans by promoting the “Big Lie” that Donald Trump won the Presidential Election of 2020; promoted white supremacy, racism and nativism; encouraged Americans to resist COVID 19 vaccinations and mask mandates; and so much else!

But the evil and lies are not just about the present, but undermining American democracy, the Constitution, and the rule of law in all of the events and controversies since the late 1990s, including the contentious Presidential Election of 2000; the September 11 attacks and the Afghanistan and Iraq Wars; the Barack Obama years; and the Donald Trump Presidency.

Sarah Palin Promoting Fear And Lies

Former Governor Sarah Palin of Alaska is maybe out of office, but she is, predictably, becoming a threat to civil discourse!

Last weekend, she came out with a statement that Barack Obama was intending to promote “death panels” that would decide the future of the elderly, such as her parents, and her son, Trig, who was born with Downs Syndrome.

This is outrageous, totally false, and all it does is promote hysteria and panic among the American people.

Interestingly, after much criticism over the weekend, Palin yesterday seemed to withdraw her statement, emphasizing the importance of civil discourse on a subject as important as health care.

However, this does not lessen the damage she has done, and the best one could ask for, but of course will not occur, is that Sarah Palin keep her mouth shut until she knows the facts about what she is talking about. This will require many months, if not years, of educating herself so she does not play a destructive role, inspiring people to act irresponsibly and behave like a mob, when they want to believe that she is a legitimate public figure.

At this point, unfortunately, she is NOT legitimate!
