The Fox News–Trump feedback loop is well
documented and it seems apparent that
the network is working overtime to
protect the president above all else.
Trump has reassured the world that his
word is worth more than any former U.S. presidents.
So how does that affect the
50% of Republicans who are Fox News viewers?
Good evening and welcome to Tucker
A study recently compared the sentiments of Fox viewers to non viewers.
It found that the network has
dramatically normalized the ways Trump
undermines democratic norms and public
institutions. Here are three ways that
Fox News is helping erode confidence in
1) Trump’s national emergency declaration:
Eighty-four percent of Republican Fox News viewers
agree that “President Trump was
right to declare a national emergency to
start building a border wall.” That’s
compared to 50% of Republican non-Fox
viewers. That’s because Fox News viewers
are hearing comments like this:
to understand one thing.
The president’s not just trying to fulfill
a campaign promise, he actually believes
it is an emergency.
So you finally get the president to
agree that this is an unacceptable
situation and we should apply some
solutions and some of the Democrats are
Make no mistake Donald Trump
will secure our border, the left are
lying to you when they say there is no
crisis, that the president is concocting
the nation’s immigration emergency.
2) FBI and US intelligence agencies:
When asked whether these institutions were
“trying to sabotage President Trump,”
79 percent of Republican fox viewers
agreed compared to 49 percent of
Republican non-Fox News viewers.
We now know top people within the FBI, filled
with hatred and frankly anti-Trump rage…
they actually plotted to destroy your
As far as I’m concerned, these are the moments when
President Trump is at his absolute best,
challenging the groupthink and
conventional wisdom of the failed
establishment. The fact is the CIA the
FBI and all the rest of the
have been wrong for decades.
This is completely insane these people are being
not only disloyal they’re being
3) The Mueller investigation
Seventy-eight percent of Republican Fox viewers want the investigation shut down.
That’s 18 percent
higher than Republican non-Fox viewers.
There was no Russian collusion in last
year’s election. The whole thing is a dry
well, a crock, a fraud, a scam, a
politically-induced hallucination. It’s
No evidence showing any
sort of collusion between the Trump
campaign and Russia. Their investigation
should be shut down immediately.
Bob, I really think it’s time for you to give
up your phony investigation and get
yourself your own criminal defense
Ultimately, Fox News is targeting the separation of powers,
whether they’re talking about the
national emergency declaration, the U.S.
intelligence apparatus, or the Muller
investigation. They are weakening these
institutions in order to empower this presidency.
