Fox News – No Moral or Ethical Compass
Caught Reporting Completely Fabricated News Stories
I suppose that this surprised no one at all, Fox News has the reputation of being a Trump propaganda media outlet.
Yet, not unlike some of the other mainstream media outlets, they report anything and everything just shy of actual real life factual news.
Yes they speak about the recent uptick in violent left and right wing supporters, but then they more often than not careen way off script and just start giving us personal thoughts, opinions and conspiracy theories.
Which play a rather unarguable part in those to far left or right that are somewhat off and decide to do something, violent.
Words even those spoken or written by the press can carry with them deeply frightening consequences.
Russian meddling carries very little weight actually where opinions are concerned here in the US.
It seems to me that our very own media are the ones causing the most irrevocable harm by distributing and sharing disinformation that is so clearly designed to sway public opinion that is it sickening.
While those who have been responsible for recent threats and murder simply spread hate through social media.
Causing one site, Gab ai to be promptly shut down. I actually am part of that site, I use it on a personal level to better track how certain headlines inspire hate rhetoric in the US. Something law enforcement should have been doing a better job of for quite some time. But that is another matter entirely.
Fox News while speaking of the migrant caravan heading towards the US, mislead viewers by mentioning that those in the caravan might spread disease once in the US.
Information that is completely unverified by the way.
So do I get ready for the zombie apocalypse finally or…do I buy a gun, start shooting any and every migrant I come across?
Between Fox News, CNN, Morning Joe, I don’t know whether to feed an immigrant or get ready for a war with them.
You see how people can take such misinformation and apply it to frame of mind that can become dangerous?
Prior to this, all we heard was that within the caravan are dangerous Mexican cartel and gang members, terrorists and the like seeking to gain entrance into the US in an effort to rape, plunder and pillage innocent US citizens.
While other news outlets left viewers believing the caravan contains innocent mothers and children.
Words are more powerful than most would think if our own media outlets cannot respect that, they should not be licensed to present the news at all.
The media’s job and I have this before is not to sway public opinion but to deliver the news in a moral and ethical manner. To report fairly and not support one side over the other. It is is to report impartially.
Something the folks at CNN, Fox News, MSNBC and a handful of others have long forgotten.
Who bloody cares what Trump and his goon squad say, the media has a moral and ethical obligation to refrain from following suit and finally get back to fair and impartial reporting with facts and not misinformation.
