Before and even after Fox News began feuding with Donald Trump, the network worked tirelessly to promote Trump’s candidacy. Now, there’s a terrific video showing you how it happened.

Media Matters put together the mashup video showing you how Fox became “Trump’s de facto communications shop, defending his campaign’s missteps and giving him tens of millions of dollars in free airtime.”

And yet, Fox also took aim at Trump during its first debate. That set off the current feud and Fox’s schizophrenia re Trump that has yet to be resolved.

But in the meanwhile, see how big a hand Fox had in creating The Donald Trump monster that is eating the GOP, via Media Matters, above.
