Apology for dispensing actual fake news
Quote:
We have an important correction to make. It appears we have been punk’d. Earlier in the program I interviewed someone claiming to be the CEO of Smithfield Foods, Dennis Organ. We’ve since learned that that was not Dennis Organ, but an imposter making false claims about the company. He is someone who has absolutely no relation to Smithfield Foods, we want to apologize to Dennis Organ, Smithfield Foods, and to our audience for making this mistake. We will of course be more vigilant.

Sadly, even if the lawsuits go ahead and they are successful and in the least OANN/NewsMax shuts down.... The indoctrinated numpties that follow these channels since they fled FNC will be out in the streets, screaming: "Conspiracy! CNN had our channel shut down." They can join the column of flat-eathers and anti-vaxxers. UGH!


You're right, but the funny thing about stupid people is that they quickly forget and move on. Without any semi-legit media sources, they lose the legitimacy and back-up. Facebook's a great example. All it has to do to cut off the lunacy is prevent people from being able to share links to fringe websites. I can go online now and post a conspiracy. If it's just me saying it, it's all a bit lame. If I say it, with a link (and pretty link picture) through to what appears like an official news source, it creates a profound degree of legitimacy. Cut the source and the water will eventually stop flowing!


It’s why Alex Jones and Infowars got shut down on social media. Oh, and as a related note, Rush Limbaugh’s radio show has now ended, so, there’s going to be one less major source of right wing talking points spreading bile over the airwaves. Nobody in right wing media will ever have the impact that Limbaugh did, so I would say that the days of right wing talk radio are numbered, and it will slowly die or have to evolve to survive.

Fox News Announces Major Shakeup of Daytime Lineup

Not that I've ever watched Fox News, but these last four years have certainly seen some names make headlines for all the wrong reasons. If only this were a shake up of 'Prime Time' and the removal of the channel's extremist hosts.

Fox News prime time schedules are appalling, and need to be changed once the Biden administration comes in. Fox will have to tailor their schedules once they start doing their hit jobs every night on the Joe Biden presidency.

The current line up on Fox News prime time is as follows:

7.00pm - The Story with Martha MacCallum
8.00pm - Tucker Carlson Tonight
9.00pm - Hannity
10.00pm - The Ingraham Angle
11.00pm - Fox News @ Night with Shannon Bream

Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity are the worse, pure Trumpists, who have defended him for the last five years and are really going to find themselves adrift once Biden is in office. Their little hit jobs every night will start to wear thin on the viewers once the new administration settles in for four long years at least.

^^^They've had 5 years to learn from CNN and MSNBC so I'm sure they'll do just fine.

The two you mention are not even journalists, hence me using the word 'hosts'. The cable news landscape would be a lot more pleasant if they were ejected into oblivion.

What ever you may think of Tucker Carlson's views you would be objectively wrong to claim that he isn't a journalist.

They'll be just fine. People forget that FNC's downfall was wrongly predicted when Obama was elected. A lot of media critics thought that FNC wouldn't have anything to talk about and that the appetite for conservative media was waning. A few months into the Obama administration, they had the smash hit of the Glenn Beck program, and Hannity became even more unhinged with his own show.

FNC still has a huge audience that will eat up anything they're given. The agenda will simply just pivot to making out everything Democrats do into a scandal.

Have you ever sat down and watched a full hour of his show? It starts with a monologue that drones on for 15-20 minutes, and very rarely does he have an interview he doesn't agree with. He may have been a supposed journalist at some point in his career, but he is certainly not one now. Watching his show will take ice cream scoops out of your brain.

Agreed. On the basis of his show on FNC, he may be an experienced journalist but his current role is not that of a journalist - he is an editorialiser.

IMO, the same is true for all talking heads on American news channels.

Our views do not align and never will. I have no interest in discussing this further with you, sorry Alex. Have a nice day, eve.

Exactly! FOX seem to be doing a great deal to weed out those who appear to have polluted the channel for so long. I'll refrain from naming people because on here it's incendiary, and I've no desire to be burnt again.
