Unfair and Unbalanced

Jane Mayer, has a big piece in The New Yorker on the relationship between the Trump administration and Fox News.

Hannity was treated in Texas like a member of the Administration because he virtually is one. The same can be said of Fox’s chairman, Rupert Murdoch. Fox has long been a bane of liberals, but in the past two years many people who watch the network closely, including some Fox alumni, say that it has evolved into something that hasn’t existed before in the United States. Nicole Hemmer, an assistant professor of Presidential studies at the University of Virginia’s Miller Center and the author of Messengers of the Right,” a history of the conservative media’s impact on American politics, says of Fox, It’s the closest we’ve come to having state TV.”

Apparently, Fox News is just now being looked at as a propaganda arm of Republicans and especially Trump? Come on now.
