New York — A former Fox News employee has sat down with Media Matters and revealed what many have been thought to be true for years, that Fox News is a partisan driven “propaganda outfit.” Media Matters reports:
“It is their M.O. to undermine the administration and to undermine Democrats,” says the source. “They’re a propaganda outfit but they call themselves news.”
The real story, and the real danger posed by the cable outlet, is that over time Fox News stopped simply leaning to the right and instead became an open and active political player, sort of one-part character assassin and one-part propagandist, depending on which party was in power. And that the operation thrives on fabrications and falsehoods.
