It is sad that so many Faux news sheeple are so triggered that they leave negative reviews because they can't handle reality. These are the folks who kill police officers that defend our nation's capital! They are nothing but uneducated traitors - exactly the people the orange turd said he loves. He said he could shoot one of them and they would still vote for him. That is the very definition of cult behavior. It is almost funny that they keep sending him money that he then uses to line his pockets and pay off porn stars.

A CNN correspondent writes about a competing network they consistently lose to in the ratings. IMO, as long as you know this has the integrity of a Kevin Durant twitter feud, enjoy for a few laughs. If you're a triggered progressive who wants to take this as serious reporting, spare yourself the embarrassment.

What a bunch of BS lies. It never ends, the lies they make up about this wonderful President.

This book is written by the dude who gushed and gushed about traitor/psycho/perv Hunter Biden's memoirs as "breathtaking" and "extraordinary"?!
Something skewed with this picture?
Photos and videos from Hunter's laptop --- and yes, it is Hunter's laptop --- and we know that 50 "former intelligence professionals" (including Brennan, Clapper, Hayden, Vickers and Mikey Morrell) lied like the devil in falsely claiming it to be Russian disinfo (and didn't all those same clowns lie before Congress and to the American public before this) --- show a crackhead filming hooker vids and selfies with an underaged female relative --- UNBELIEVABLE!
Yet this beanbag of a sorry excuse for a citizen should be considered a "credible source" ---- ONLY by the conspiracy theorists of the NY Times staff, some of whom were previously employed by the CCP at their China Daily publication.

The huge swing between the 5 star reviews and the 1/2 star and 1 star opinion make clear that this is a very controversial and divisive book. Brian Stelter is the very opposite of an unbiased reporter! Not a trustworthy read.

I found this book absolutely fascinating. Probably because it is so current and about people I see in the screen all the time. It's good for revealing all the behind-the-scenes poop about the Murdochs, Ailes and Fox "stars" like Hannity and Carlson and their blatant lies and hypocrisy. Stelter has contacts within Fox and has been following that soap opera for years. Everything he writes about is confirmed by what I actually have seen or other sources. It is well- written, believable and informative.

I couldn't get into this book as much as I tried. I think it was written in April 2020, and I mostly just skimmed it over. If I had read this soon after its release, perhaps it would have seemed more current and relevant.

The inner workings of fox world. Worse than anyone could imagine.

This is a lie! The Left will lie about anything to get in power. Do your research, people!

Fox news is the definition of fake and biased news geared toward supporting a corrupt president. Stelter got it right! We now know that the President of the United States lied on tape about knowing the danger coronavirus presents, while being complicit in causing 190,000 + deaths and tanking the economy. He's perfectly willing to sacrifice all of our lives and livelihood in the interest of getting re-elected.

“When the virus was silently spreading across the United States, some of Fox’s biggest stars denied and downplayed the threat posed by the virus; Trump echoed them; and they echoed back. . . Most Americans knew that Trump was untrustworthy, but the Fox base still trusted him. They also trusted Hannity, who dismissed ‘coronavirus hysteria,’ and Laura Ingraham who called Democrats the ‘panDEMic party.’ . . . As ICU admissions and the death toll rose, Fox’s most vociferous critics said the network had blood on its hands.“

“As the number of (COVID-19) cases ballooned and the CDC warned about ‘disruption to everyday life might be severe’ . . . Democrats said Trump wasn’t taking the threat seriously enough. Trump rebuffed them and claimed the virus was ‘very well under control in our country.’ Fox’s (News) overarching storyline was set: the damn Democrats were unfairly using the virus as a cudgel against Trump. One night Laura Ingraham’s show screamed ‘LEFT WEAPONIZING CORONAVIRUS FEARS.“
