I have a relative who only watches Fox News. We watched the last presidential debate last night together—on Fox. I kept my mouth shut.
This morning, I looked up “fact-checking” to see about all the BS that was flung around during the debate (by both candidates - albeit not equally). Most of the mainstream television media companies have fact-checkers, and there were some enlightening points made and important facts recited. I learned things.
My relative would not even consider any of these fact-checks because “everybody has a way of twisting the truth.” I tried to find Fox’s fact-check follow-up, and guess what? FOX DOES NOT DO ANY FACT-CHECKING. 😳 So, my relative has been convinced that facts are always manipulated, and does not believe the truth can even be known. This is the legacy of Fox.
I feel sick.
