‘What Fox News Has Created is a Market For Crazy’ – Truth Bomb From Down Under

The vast majority of the American people recognize that Fox News is a deceitful cabal of propagandists bent on advancing the interests of radical Republicans and Trump cultists. Never mind the ratings. While Fox Entertainment is leading the other legitimate news networks, that’s only because they have a near monopoly on the right-wing fringe. Their actual penetration into the population at large is only about one percent.

Nevertheless, Fox News is deliberately dividing the nation on behalf the corporations and wealthy elites they represent. And they have an impact because other media parrots their partisan rhetoric and helps to disseminate their lies. But they aren’t fooling everyone, and especially not the leaders of foreign countries that have their own problems with Rupert Murdoch’s media.

Case in point, on CNN’s Reliable Sources Sunday morning, Malcolm Turnbull, the former Prime Minister of Australia, Murdoch’s birthplace, explained to host Brian Stelter why Fox News is so dangerous (video below). And he wasn’t mincing words:

“What Murdoch has delivered largely through Fox News in the United States is exactly what Vladimir Putin wanted to achieve with his disinformation campaigns. Turning one part of America against another. So exacerbating the divisions that already exist in American society and undermine the trust Americans have in their Democratic institutions. That was the objective of the Russian disinformation campaign. And that is exactly what is being delivered by Fox News, and by other players in that right-wing populace media ecosystem.”

Exactly! And Turnbull’s commentary applies just as much to Donald Trump as it does to Fox News. The talk of “collusion” during the first impeachment of Trump barely scratched the surface of the conspiracy that engulfed Trump, Russia, and Fox News. They were (and still are) all working toward the same ends: Turning Americans against each other and their country. Turnbull continued saying that…

“What they have created is a market for crazy. They’ve become unhinged from the facts. It is now, basically, they’ve worked out that you can just make stuff up. Everyone talks about and complains about social media. But what is being done by curated media, mainstream media – including, and in particular, Fox News – has done enormous damage to the United States.”

The evidence of the ultra “crazy” market that Fox News created is all too apparent in the Trump insurrection at the Capitol on January 6th. It is apparent in the adoption of QAnon insanity by many on the right, including the QAnon supporting primetime host, Tucker Carlson. And it couldn’t be more obvious than when Fox News denies that the GOP is the party of QAnon.

Turnbull concluded by asking whether America is “a more divided country than it was before, thanks to Murdoch’s influence?” The answer is an unequivocal “Yes!” Murdoch is a foreign-born domestic terrorist who has never had the best interests of the nation at heart. To the contrary, he has spent his lifetime attempting to pervert democracies in order to empower the oligarchs and enrich himself.

The harm done by Fox News is extensive and destructive. And Trump is just as responsible for it as Murdoch and his treasonous media manipulators. They have been executing the agenda of Vladimir Putin, who couldn’t be more pleased with the efforts by Trump and Fox News. And they must be called out at every opportunity for their betrayal.

  1. (Murdoch) “…has spent his lifetime attempting to pervert democracies in order to empower the oligarchs and enrich himself.”

    Sounds like he’s done this before ~ attempting to pervert other democracies. Didn’t Britain kick his dastardly butt to the curb, due to something related to media? (When & what did he do? Might make for a noteworthy blog & get shared on social media?) For sure, is doing bang-up job of it here! Anywhere else? If we could show a pattern of him using/abusing his media for propaganda with bad intentions, may be able to get FCC to do something about “FPN”!? Guess he wasn’t on my radar yet cuz’ this is all news to me.
    I mean, I’d hate to put those talking empty skulls, like *ucker Carlson out of a job — Oh wait! No I wouldn’t!

  2. Sunny, if you want to follow the sleazy career of Rupert Murdoch, aka The Fascist of Oz, brace yourself for some truly disgusting revelations from Australia, the UK and the USA. I admit to being shocked by Turnbull’s revelation that his son Laughan’s even farther to the furthest Right than the old man is.

  3. All the more reason that FauxNotNews should normt be allowed to continue contaminating U.S. airwaves, duviding & destroying this Country, with lies, while calling itself “news”!
