Fox News is a piece of work. But many are watching the hypocrisy and lining them up for all to see. Should the reason they wanted Clinton locked up apply doubly to Trump?
Fox News then and now.
It is hard to believe that Fox News can get away with its incessant changes in positions. They are simply propaganda machines. Unfortunately, that means one cannot assume the slant on reporting will be consistent.
Stephanie Ruhle’s show did an excellent job of pointing out their hypocrisy and inconsistency. She played what hosts and pundits were saying during the Clinton days and what they are saying now.
Remember the days of “lock her up” when everyone was hyperventilating over Hillary Clinton’s emails? What drove those of us who work with computers nuts is that the media and politicians made believe that emails are unidirectional or that their paths do not traverse various computer systems and networks. The bottom line is unless your email is encrypted end to end, everyone can get access to all the emails you send.
Trump, on the other hand, had actual government documents, many classified at his home. It is clear that he could sell them to the government most willing to pay. Where are the lock him up calls for Trump?
Well, it gets deeper. The law-and-order party — we always knew that was a joke — is busy attacking the implementers of law and order.
But then, Attorney General Merrick Garland would have the last laugh. He called Trump and his sycophant’s bluff. He opened all the parts of the investigation he could. And it revealed for those who choose to read between the line that Trump, in fact, should be locked up.
Fox News and pundits — we are waiting.
