The Truth Comes Out About FAUX NOOZ's Lies


These are postings from a blogger who believed in the Big Lie:

It’s Day 619 of the coup, the theft of the American Government, by enemies both foreign and domestic.

Our federal government has been stolen by the illegal actions of leftist politicians.
And they have no regard for you or yours. Only they and theirs.

We have been the victims of a vast criminal enterprise.

It’s Day 605 of the coup, the theft of the American Government, by enemies both foreign and domestic.
Our federal government has been stolen by the illegal actions of leftist politicians.
And they are driving it like they stole it.

I pray for a Great Awakening of the American People and a glorious, hopefully bloodless, Second Revolution, the restoration of our Republic.

The "Great Awakening of the American people" begins by reading the texts below from the Dominion law suit against FAUX NOOZ where the American people can see the contemptible, destructive lies by Carlson, Hannity, and Ingraham that were fed to their viewers and that infected the minds of millions of Trump cultists with the Big Lie.

(PS. Apparently, the blogger has given up his paranoid idea that the 2020 election was stolen. He no longer posts about it on his blog. A true "Great Awakening!")

Faux Nooz contributed to Trump cultists' delusions and disinformation, not just the above quoted blogger's. Millions of other dupes believed what Faux and Trump fed them. Together, they drove a stake through our democracy's heart, all in service to money and power.

Don't blame the bloggers too much. They couldn't help themselves, because they'd been fed distortions, disinformation, and lies for years from FAUX NOOZ and Trump and they lacked the ability to see through those deceptions. 

When you place your trust in liars and cheats, this is the result of that terrible choice:

via Democratic Underground:

Here are some things Tucker Carlson is now on record saying, with some dates and juicy details: 

 "Sidney Powell is lying. Fucking bitch. " (Tucker to his producer Alex Pfeiffer, 11/16/20) 

"Sidney Powell is lying by the way. I caught her. It's insane." 

To which Laura Ingraham texted back, "Sidney is a complete nut. No one will work with her. Ditto with Rudy." 

To which Tucker replied, "It's unbelievably offensive to me. Our viewers are good people and they believe it." (11/18/20) 

November 13: The filing says Tucker wrote privately that Trump should concede, and was in agreement that "there wasn't enough fraud to change the outcome" of the election. He called the election fraud claims "ludicrous" and "totally off the rails." 

(11/20/20 and 12/24/20) When, just after the election, Maria Bartiromo started pushing Sidney Powell's bullshit about Dominion's voting machines — which was sourced from somebody who said they saw it in a dream and who thought the wind talked to her, among other things — Tucker said the "software shit was absurd." He said it was "shockingly reckless" to claim Dominion rigged the election without any proof in a text to [REDACTED] on 11/21/20. 

After the Trump White House and other conservatives started screaming at Fox News for (correctly) calling Arizona for Biden on election night, Tucker's producer Pfeiffer said people on their side were being "reckless demagogues." Tucker said, "Of course they are. We're not going to follow them." 

However, on the night of November 12, when Fox News reporter Jacqui Heinrich correctly factchecked a Trump tweet about Dominion and election rigging, Tucker group-texted Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham saying, "Please get her fired. Seriously .... What the fuck ? actually shocked...It needs to stop immediately , like tonight. It's measurably hurting the company. The stock price is down. Not a joke." 

The night of January 6, Tucker texted his producer Pfeiffer that Donald Trump was "a demonic force, a destroyer. But he's not going to destroy us." 

And then he had the MyPillow Guy on his show on January 26 to blab more conspiracy theories. Said literally all the lies Tucker absolutely knew were lies. Tucker didn't push back.

Interestingly enough, in all my rather extensive reading of right-wing blogs, I haven't seen a single post explicitly acknowledging the revelations of the internal Fox communications at all. In fact, the blog "American Thinker" has a new post up today doubling down on the usual stuff about signatures and ballot paper and still claiming that the 2020 election is "unverifiable".

I suppose in some cases they may simply not have the integrity to post a confession of having been wrong, but in most cases it's probably that the media they watch haven't mentioned the story. This shows again the risk of being in a bubble, only going to news sources that agree with one's existing views -- there's too much risk of simply being unaware of major stories that don't fit the narrative.

Hopefully Dominion will require, as part of the settlement, that Fox itself broadcast a clear and prominent confession with extensive citation of the damning e-mails. Of course the most extreme wingnuts long ago decided that Fox had "gone over to the dark side" and won't pay attention, but some of the less-crazy ones will be reachable if Fox itself has to acknowledge what they did.

I can't help but wonder if the MAGAt's will even attempt to digest truth and realize they were played for fools.

But the trashiest is Hannity, Ingraham, and Carlson. If networks had any integrity at all they would have never allowed the dishonesty they knew was occurring. These opportunists should have had their asses fired. But for the networks it is glaringly obvious that what matters is audience and mega bucks. The charade they allowed to happen lined tgeir pockets and in corporate America THAT is ALL that matters.

GREED found a home in what is supposed to an honorable profession as societies watchdog. Cable news is far from that.

If only he believed that. Mr. Offensive himself.
