All the FOX people said one thing privately and the opposite to their viewers on Jan 6.

Off the air, Fox News stars blasted the election fraud claims they peddled

In the days and weeks after the 2020 elections, the Fox News Channel repeatedly broadcast false claims that then-President Donald Trump had been cheated of victory.

Off the air, the network's stars, producers and executives expressed contempt for those same conspiracies, calling them "mind-blowingly nuts," "totally off the rails" and "completely bs" - often in far earthier terms.

Their entire network is full of shit. They should never be treated as a legitimate news organization after this.

It’s extremely sad when you know people who’ve cut off family and friends because they believe every word that comes out of their mouth…. I don’t understand how they haven’t been sued into oblivion for all their bullshit.

You won’t find a word of this on FOX News. Their lead story is talking about some Trans dude. Their next big story is about Don Lemon making sexist comments. This opinion article sums it up. FOX knew Trump was lying. Trump was doing what he always does and was threatening FOX News already for calling AZ for Biden. He started telling his viewers to switch to News Max and some did. FOX New knew if they told the truth about Jan 6 FOX they would lose half their audience. They decided it was better to go along with Trumps lies rather than tell the truth and risk the fallout. They all deliberately lied for ratings.

Analysis: Fox News has been exposed as a dishonest organization terrified of its own audience

Fox News’ role, according to its own talent, is thus not to challenge or inform its audience, but rather to confirm what its right-wing viewers already believe. In short, Fox is a propaganda outlet, not a news outlet.

Fox’s viewers are good people and they believe that Bill Gates has placed microchips in the COVID-19 vaccine, and Fox’s stars are there to tell them they are right to think the vaccines are dangerous and unnecessary. Fox’s viewers are good people and they believe that Paul Pelosi was assaulted by his gay lover, and Fox’s stars are there to tell them they are right to question the official story. Fox’s viewers are good people and they believe that Trump is about to smash a global cabal of Democrats and celebrities that is sexually abusing children, and Fox’s stars are there to tell them that there’s nothing wrong with being a QAnon adherent, whatever that is.

But with its 2020 election fraud lies, Fox News may have finally gone too far. It is very difficult to win a defamation case against a media outlet in this country — rightfully so given the importance of the First Amendment. But Dominion’s lawsuit makes a strong case based on internal documents that it says show “literally dozens of people with editorial responsibility — from the top of the organization to the producers of specific shows to the hosts themselves — acted with actual malice” — the legal standard required in defamation cases. And earlier in the week, a court ruled against Fox News’ bid to quash a separate $2.7 billion lawsuit filed by the election technology company Smartmatic, which the network similarly maligned.

Fox News may finally be on the verge of facing real consequences for lying to its viewers. That day of reckoning can’t come soon enough.

Professional liars. I hope they're happy with the insurrection they encouraged. How do they live with themselves? I guess the money hides their shame.

They simply don't care. They've mad large amounts of money, and there hasn't been any real negative consequence to their behavior, so why should they change it?

The messages also revealed that Rupert Murdoch, the chairman of Fox Corporation, did not believe Trump’s election lies and even floated the idea of having Carlson, Hannity, and Ingraham appear together in prime time to declare Joe Biden as the rightful winner of the election.

Such an act, Murdoch said, “Would go a long way to stop the Trump myth that the election stolen.”



But he didn’t…

His argument is basically, “If he’d been more loyal to me I wouldn’t have tried to have him killed.” Which is at least more coherent than the typical Trump argument.
