Despite Outbreaks Among Unvaccinated, Fox News Hosts Smear Shots
Back in December, before the queen of England and the president-elect of the United States had their turns, media mogul Rupert Murdoch received a dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.

Since then, a different message has been a repeated refrain on the prime-time shows hosted by Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham on Murdoch’s Fox News Channel — a message at odds with the recommendations of health experts, even as the virus’s delta variant and other mutationsnews.yahoo.com
Trump defends Capitol rioters, says there was 'zero threat'
Trump complained to Fox News Channel’s Laura Ingraham that law enforcement was “persecuting” the Capitol rioters, while “nothing happens” to left-wing protesters. Trump did acknowledge that those who stormed the Capitol “went in and they shouldn’t have done it.”But he added: “Some of them went in and they’re, they’re hugging and kissing the police and the guards. A lot of the people were waved in and then they walked in and they walked out." AdThe Jan. 6 riot followed a fiery Trump rally outside the White House, in which he urged a mob of his supporters to “fight like hell” for him at the Capitol.

Conservative media decry Capitol riot, but grievances remain

(AP Photo/John Minchillo)NEW YORK – Media outlets that appeal to conservatives offered condemnations, explanations and deflections following the U.S. Capitol riot by President Donald Trump's supporters, but little introspection. Several figures in conservative media suggested liberal politicians and mainstream media outlets are more outraged when Trump supporters are violent than they were about civil rights demonstrations last summer. “Were left-wing provocateurs leading the way into the Capitol?” questioned Thomas Lifson of American Thinker. Many conservative media figures have sold themselves as truth-tellers and admitting error isn't good for business, said Brian Rosenwald, author of “Talk Radio America” and a scholar in residence at the University of Pennsylvania.

Fox News spent less time on raw numbers to showcase their prime-time stars, Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham.

Trump spins baseless tale of thugs flying to protests
Thousands of social media users shared posts suggesting a covert network was coordinating the protests and rioters were descending on communities across the country.

Democrats hope unconventional travelogue entices viewers
(Democratic National Convention via AP)NEW YORK An unexpected travelogue connected as a television event during the second night of the Democrats' virtual convention, livening up a show that so far is struggling in the ratings. Four years ago, opening night drew just under 26 million viewers. NBC's telecast drew 2.28 million viewers, down from 4.29 million four years ago, Nielsen said. The left-leaning MSNBC, where Rachel Maddow, Joy Reid and Nicolle Wallace were anchors, led the way Monday with 5.1 million viewers, up from four years ago. Fox News Channel's audience was unimpressed; the 2.1 million viewers it reached for its hour of convention coverage compared poorly with the 3.4 million viewers that time slot occupant Laura Ingraham had on an average July day.

Many supporters of the movement consider that a deflection, akin to answering Black Lives Matter with all lives matter. Of course, all lives matter, they say. The point is to draw attention to times when officials with a duty to serve and protect seem to value Black lives less.

Asked whether she supported Trump, Faulkner said people can think whatever they want.

Then he said he was going to spend the next four days trout fishing. A Fox representative confirmed the vacation was planned before the Neff story broke.

Trump has the full authority to use the federal government to go into states to restore order, Fox's Sean Hannity said. Criminals and domestic terrorists are using George Floyd to try to murder America, host Laura Ingraham said.
