Fox Attacks Reporting On Trump Scandals As 'Opposition Party'

up

If you're wondering why your crazy Uncle Liberty (h/t Driftglass) still believes Trump is the Greatest President Ever, here's what life looks like inside of the right-wing bubble.

Over in GOP-TV land, otherwise known as Pravda Fox "news," the problem is not Trump or his administration's behavior. Nope. It's the evil non-existent "liberal media's" fault for reporting on all of the scandals.

How dare they let the public know what's going on? Here are some of the headlines for the last couple of days over on Fox's blog, Fox News Insider:

Hegseth showed this graphic and tried to use it as proof that the media is just out to get Trump, which was knocked down by the other guest, Richard Fowler, who was quickly cut off by Hegseth after he pointed out that Trump has been his own worst enemy when it comes to generating a lot of his own negative press coverage.

As Media Matters reported, as soon as these stories broke on Friday, Fox immediately began echoing the White House's talking points, attacking the media: Fox News’ first reporting on breaking NY Times and Wash. Post articles echoed White House talking points.
