NewsBusters Podcast: Fox News, Krakengate, and ‘Reliable Sources’

The Dominion Voting Systems lawsuit against Fox News has uncovered an embarrassing collection of messages underlining that Fox’s owner and stars had contempt for wild claims about Trump winning the 2020 election, but aired lawyers like Sidney Powell, who pledged to “release the Kraken” of truth….that never arrived. Tucker Carlson, for one, called her out on TV.

CNN’s Oliver Darcy, one of America’s premier haters of Fox News, reported with glee in the “Reliable Sources” newsletter that text messages and emails showed that privately, Fox was much harsher with these election-fraud claims than they were on television.

Fox was worried that their pro-Trump audience would leave them for Newsmax. Ex-conservative Mona Charen claimed conservatives were more interested in “agreeable fictions” than on “complex facts.” Conservative journalists and conservative media critics and conservative media consumers should never be rightly accused of seeking “agreeable fictions.”
