Fox News Isn’t Even Trying Anymore

For indispensable reporting on the coronavirus crisis, the election, and more, subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter.


Maybe the Republican Party’s struggles are driving Fox News employees to hit the bottle. Because there’s no other explanation for this video clip. Make sure to watch the second half, which is arguably worse than the first.

What I love about this is that, while it’s conceivable that the Fox News producers mixed their clips up, the host and his guest plow on through like there isn’t a problem. Like they aren’t literally creating attacks out of thin air.

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2020 demands.
