1. Using Lies & Out Of Context Quotes Fox News Tries To Paint The Left As A Mob
A long time ago The Daily Show noticed that Trump was basically following Fox News talking points. This post proves that Fox News is indeed making political and policy decisions for the country through Trump.
IS FOX NEWS THE REAL PRESIDENT? 3/20/2017 Trevor examines President Trump's relationship with Fox News, from granting exclusive network interviews to pushing pundit Andrew Napolitano's conspiracies about Barack Obama.
Daily Show nailed it ages ago;
The Following Media Analysis and Excerpts by Media Matters Proves That Fox News Is Making Decisions For The Presidency And Is Thus Our Real President;
The Fox News president: Trump confirms he's just repeating what he hears on TV Trump spends his latest interview with Fox & Friends echoing the network's talking points
You remember how everyone was so socked by Trump's response to Charlottesville? Trump was simply following Fox News talking points;
Trump defends neo-Nazis, as seen previously On Fox News
What Trump said at his recent press conference, regarding neo-Nazis and Charlottesville, came directly from Fox News.
A channel claiming to be a news channel and doing the sort of low level - obvious - Nazi style propaganda couldn't exist in an environment where the media was doing its job and exposing liars and traitors as per their supposed social role of being "the forth estate" that is supposed to help democracy. All the media has done is help the right destroy democracy and not much else.
Video: Why you should worry about the Trump / Fox News feedback loop
President Donald Trump spends hours of his days tweeting at the television. The president is pulling much of his information directly from Fox News, specifically from his favorite show Fox & Friends. When the man with unparalleled access to the most advanced intelligence operation in the world prefers to get his information from people who once tried to roast marshmallows first with their hands and then with a plastic spoon, we're all in serious trouble. Watch:
Fox News has been openly telling Trump what to do for years (so much the media occasionally comments on it). Even Trump's strategy for dealing with the rises and falls of the stock market (i.e. claim credit for rises and blame others for its falls) is a strategy from Fox News, but the media doesn't even mention where Trump gets his strategies from, acting completely incompetent as a news source.
VOX: Trump took credit when the stock market was doing well. Now he’s looking for someone to blame. The stock market’s recent turmoil, explained.
Where Trump got this strategy from (the part left out of all media reporting);
Fox host says that Trump should take credit for the good of the stock market, but not the bad - Varney’s praise of the "Trump stock market rally" conveniently ignores steady growth of the Dow under Obama
Fox Business host Stuart Varney said that President Donald Trump “was right to tout" stock market growth that has taken place since his inauguration as one of his achievements, claiming that "it was his policies which created" the rally. However, Varney dismissed the February 5 Dow Jones 1,175 point drop as an overdue market “correct[ion],” saying that "presidents shouldn't stick into that kind of sell-off on a day-to-day basis" and advising Trump to "steer clear of that, please." Varney’s comments continue a pattern of showering Trump with praise for a strong economy and stock market or defending his economic policies, while ignoring the six-plus years of steady economic growth under the previous president, Barack Obama, whose economic policies Varney frequently criticized.
Conclusions: Fox News has been openly lying for years. Openly demonizing Republican political adversaries (the Democrats) for years. While doing this Fox News has been the number 1 "News" channel in America for 18 years...

Clearly, pretending to expose "evil" gets high ratings. How high would the ratings be if media was exposing ACTUAL evil? How does a channel lie to the nation - unchallenged by "fact based" media, supposedly of the "fourth estate" - for 18 years? If England was lying to Americans media would report it. If a channel in America - with more viewers than any other "news" channel in America - is lying everyday and the media is not reporting it or calling them out then what the hell is going on? Clearly we no longer have a media that is reporting essential facts. Whatever is going on, after all these years as number 1 "news" channel, Fox News made it to the Presidency.
Every-night, for months, Fox News has been attacking media and Trumps political opponents as America's number 1 news channel with no opposition. If a Nazi style propaganda arm had become America's number 1 "news" channel that would be big news in the universe I used to live in. A universe where. in America, people inciting terrorist with incendiary rhetoric would be called out as the traitors they are. Not covering this up with their silence, or actively helping them push their lies on Sunday Shows (or the Iraq War and its no consequence aftermath, etc.). The examples are endless. This post exposes the biggest secret media is not talking about. Fox News is president. They tell what Trump to do and bully the press and get away with it regularly and have been for 18 years.
