This morning was a perfect example of the pro-Trump infomerical that is Fox and Friends. It's past time to prosecute them for in-kind political contributions to the Republican Party.
October 5, 2020

So this morning on Fox and Friends the hosts:

  • praised Trump's "Sunday drive" outside of Walter Reed
  • advertised a street-shutdown of 5th Avenue in New York by Trump supporters
  • and insisted that Trump is the savior of Wall Street and "union workers'" 401Ks.

And of course Dear Leader was watching and tweeting from his hospital bed.

This isn't a morning news program. It's an in-kind political contribution to the Republican Party. And it's past time for Congress to take them on.

Can you help us out?
