Media Matters: VIDEO: How Fox News is mainstreaming white supremacists and neo-Nazis
Video: Fox News' Tucker Carlson echoes white nationalists, white supremacists, and neo-Nazis (this video added on Oct 8, 2018)
There has been a massive backlash following Laura Ingraham's anti-immigrant rant on her Fox News show. Ingraham's arguments are directly reminiscent of arguments made by white supremacists Jared Taylor, Richard Spencer, and David Duke.

Media Matters: Fox & Friends is sympathetic to neo-Nazis marching but outraged over sports players kneeling
has been outraged by the peaceful protests led by professional athletes like Colin Kaepernickand Megan Rapinoe during the national anthem. And yet, Trump's favorite television show has found plenty of sympathy for the white nationalists who marched in Charlottesville.
If only Fox and Friends showed the same level of disgust towards a white supremacist rally as they do for a peaceful national anthem protest.

Media Matters: Tucker Carlson is using his Fox News show to mainstream white nationalism
Ever since Tucker Carlson took over the reigns of the 8 p.m. slot in Fox News’ prime-time lineup with his show , he has been using the hour to mainstream white nationalism. Carlson, a belovedfigure of the white nationalist community, dedicates significant time to fearmonger about immigration,defend white nationalists, complain about racism against white people, or regularly provide a platform forbigots, all the while accusing "the left" of making everything about race.

Media Matters; How Sean Hannity's Charlottesville propaganda works
Note: At 2:25 is the key to Hannity's strategy. He avoids the fact that GOP has been using a racist strategy since Nixon and states blatantly - while pointing to the ENTIRE left (since, at least, 9/11 and then it became an identifying feature of the right) - that its a lie. i.e. "not true that Republicans are bigots" while he knows that the people they use the racist strategy don't think they are racist because their views of race are being manipulated to create conflict for bad policies (as a red herring/decoy) but in a sense they are (unconscious racism) but Hannity ignores these subtleties in favor of cult like statements and general categorizations. while labeling it "destroy Trump" "establishment media" i.e. us against them. Its a basic con strategy that shows Hannity is not a journalist but a con artist, and not that good of one. Then he continues painting a picture of us vs them and how bad they are against us. (clearly only civil war can save him). [Of course, most Republicans tend to be generational Republicans and vote Republican cause their daddy did and will pretty much believe anything the leadership tells them anyways, its their thing. But their core is probably where "President" Trump's approval rating is when he is playing to his base at the cost of everything else, which seems to be pretty standard procedure nowadays]
Closing of the article above:
The bias of supporting the hate of white supremacists/nationalists/Nazis over regular Americans continues in Fox News;
Media Matters: Fox & Friends coverage of Unite The Right protests ignores white supremacists, instead fearmongers about antifa While happy to complain about antifa, Fox & Friends completely ignores that white supremacists are planning on gathering again
Supporting thier base;
Media matters: Fox News reporter: Unite the Right white nationalists "peacefully exercised" free speech while counter-protesters were "chaotic" Griff Jenkins: The counter-protest "wasn't just directed at [white nationalist Jason] Kessler, there was a large anti-Trump version, or sentiment in that crowd"
Result of this sort of propaganda is to make Nazis/White-supremicists (or historical America that was rejected by the educated civilzed world of the west) mainstream again;
Nazi, white nationalist running as Republicans An avowed Nazi, a Holocaust denier, a white supremacist, and a pro-confederacy fetishist are running for office this year, all as Republicans.
Clearly its the right that are the Nazis (if facts are used to measure the situation);
Fox News recent, and amazing, hypocrisy;
Tucker Carlson is aghast anyone would compare Trump to a Nazi...
(He previously compared the Obama administration to Nazis.)
Right-wing media repeatedly compared the Obama administration to Nazis
Right-wing media are incensed that anyone would compare Trump to a Nazi. They compared Barack Obama and his administration to Nazis for years.
BREAKING: Nazism Has Been Repackaged as "Conservatism"
- Update Aug 20, 2018 -
Note: There is one person who consistently acts like a facts based newsman on Fox News suggesting that the lies are pushed by Fox personalities/script-writers independently of the contract (the perfect alibi for Fox to claim "its the anchors fault"!). One non-white supremacist/traitor amougst a whole group isn't enough to change the definition of a channel but it is an interesting tid bit;
