One theory being discussed, according to Vanity Fair, is that Trump pushed Bill Shine out now because House Democrats are looking to investigate the White House's ties to Fox.

Walter Shaub Retweeted Citizens for Ethics

While in government

— Shine receives $$ from Fox

— Gives Hannity a high 5 at Trump event

— Strips Fox competitor of WH credential

— Ends regular press conferences, thereby giving Fox an advantage as to its access to POTUS + WH

— Can't get financial disclosure approved

— Quits abruptly

Fox News has enjoyed record ratings over the past two years, but its close ties to the president and its commitment to right-wing opinion coverage is putting the network on the brink.

If you think you know Tucker Carlson, just read the transcript of that taped interview with

Bubba The Love Sponge.

Tucker Carlson on Rupert Murdoch in 2010 radio segment: "I'm 100 percent his ****"

“But see, I’m an out-of-the-closet elitist,” Carlson said in a 2008 segment. “I don’t run around pretending to be a man of the people; I’m absolutely not a man of the people, at all.” https://interc.pt/2XSJx3W  by @aidachavez

Per The Washington Post, Rupert Murdoch got mad when Laura Ingraham apologized for her tweet about David Hogg not getting into his preferred college because it made Fox look weak.

Caught harassing a high school shooting Survivor-- and then having the Fox cable news boss Rupert Murdoch angry because you apologized to this teenager...

 All this in addition to all those sexual harassment lawsuits.

 But often times we've noted, when an individual or an organization is bigoted with racism they often have other attributes that aren't exactly positive either.

Hate is like a Contagion.

Like Kavanagh, Tucker Carlson is the victim in this story ...

Tucker Carlson says he’s the victim of a powerful bully. Meet the 24-year-old who found the tapes.
In reality, credit goes to Madeline Peltz, a 20-something in her first adult job who lives in the basement of a D.C. house she rents with five other people, a few cats and a dog named Noodles.
By Eli Rosenberg

 Reading the transcripts of these tapes was truly a  R Kelly moment.

Fox News hires former DNC chairwoman Donna Brazile

Brazile said she would question assertions about low-income people and issues such as climate change but would do so with “civility and respect.”

......In an op-ed article on FoxNews.com, Brazile wrote that she hoped to improve the tenor of political debate.

“Will I agree with my fellow commentators at Fox News? Probably not. But I will listen," Brazile wrote.

Brazile said she would question assertions about low-income people and issues such as climate change, but would do so with “civility and respect.”

Brazile added: “I will also freely admit the weaknesses in liberal arguments and the strength in conservative positions.”........

Trump campaign urges networks to challenge top Trump detractors-

Trump’s campaign on Monday urged major news networks to not allow on their shows several people, including Democratic lawmakers, who have been critical of the president,

adding that the networks should report Barr's conclusions of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report as a “complete vindication” of Trump.

“The issuance of these definitive findings comes after two years of Democrat leaders and others lying to the American people by vigorously and repeatedly claiming there was evidence of collusion,” Tim Murtaugh, director of communications for Trump’s campaign, wrote in the letter to the networks...

Glenn Greenwald, What a real journalist sounds like.

Times change but things remain the same.

Operation Mockingbird[edit]

In a 1977 Rolling Stone magazine article, "The CIA and the Media," reporter Carl Bernstein wrote that by 1953, CIA Director Allen Dulles oversaw the media network, which had major influence over 25 newspapers and wire agencies.[50] Its usual modus operandi was to place reports, developed from CIA-provided intelligence, with cooperating or unwitting reporters. Those reports would be repeated or cited by the recipient reporters and would then, in turn, be cited throughout the media wire services. These networks were run by people with well-known liberal but pro-American-big-business and anti-Soviet views, such as William S. Paley (CBS), Henry Luce (Time and Life), Arthur Hays Sulzberger (The New York Times), Alfred Friendly (managing editor of The Washington Post), Jerry O'Leary (The Washington Star), Hal Hendrix (Miami News), Barry Bingham, Sr. (Louisville Courier-Journal), James S. Copley (Copley News Services) and Joseph Harrison (The Christian Science Monitor).[50]

MSM should stop framing the Russians reaching out the to Trump campaign during the election as if it was an isolated incident during election

and start discussing Trump’s almost 4 decades of dealings with Russian officials and mafia in US and abroad.

 

So overlooked
