Fox News - this is not satire
A[quote name="Mangy" url="/community/t/149438/fox-news-this-is-not-satire/480#post_4477150"]Fox News is launching a streaming video subscription for their "superfans" - 

Of course, the irony of this is that subscribers will need their devious Leftist Millennial grandchildren to set it up for them.

Good. Isolate the worst nonsense and hardcore wackadoos further.

Seth Rich's family is suing Fox News (and others):

Quote:The family of Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich, who was killed in 2016, has filed a lawsuit against Fox News, an investigative reporter and one of the network's contributors over a story about Rich and allegations that he was involved in a conspiracy, according to the lawsuit. 

Rich was shot and killed in Washington, D.C., in July 2016. Police said he was shot several times in the back and later died at a local hospital. Rich was 27 years old and worked as a voter-expansion data director for the DNC at the time. 

The May 16, 2017, Fox News article, which allegedly contained "false and fabricated facts," according to the lawsuit, fueled conspiracy theories that Rich was murdered in connection with a massive WikiLeaks data dump of 20,000 DNC emails days after his death. 

In the suit, which was obtained by ABC News, Rich's parents, Joel and Mary Rich, claim that Fox News investigative reporter Malia Zimmerman and contributor Ed Butowsky reached out to the family under false pretenses to support stories that Seth Rich leaked DNC emails to WikiLeaks. 

The lawsuit claims that Fox News, Zimmerman and Butowsky are liable for the harm caused by the report because they "aided and abetted the intentional infliction of emotional distress" caused by the story about Seth Rich and alleges that Fox News provided with a national platform to develop what the lawsuit dubs a "sham story." 
Came here to post this. Lots of assholes being sued this week. I love it.
I see that Fox's new slogan is Real news Real opinions. At least they're half right.
I've got good news and I've got bad news. The bad news is that I have lost my way. The good news is that I'm way ahead of schedule.

Remember when Glenn Beck was Fox's darling? Yeah, now he's trying to sell his private plane and media "empire"
Oh wow, this is the hardest I've laughed in a good while:

Quote:When Roger Ailes founded Fox News in 1996, he made it one of the network’s core missions to fiercely oppose identity politics and political correctness. Now, nearly two years after Ailes was fired for sexual harassment, Fox News is getting woke. Today, Lachlan Murdoch announced the network’s longtime programming executive, Suzanne Scott, was being promoted to chief executive of the news organization, noting in the release that she “made history as its first female C.E.O.” Scott’s elevation comes two days after the network announced it had settled the remaining gender and racial discrimination lawsuits from the Ailes era for roughly $10 million.

But as Fox News adapts its 1950s workplace culture to fit the times, staffers are on edge. According to sources, Fox News recently installed a “meditation room” complete with Muslim prayer rugs in Ollie North’s office in the network’s Washington bureau. (Earlier this month, North left Fox to become the N.R.A. president.) Staffers now attend mandatory sexual harassment training, and the employee intranet includes a section for gender-transition policies and guidelines. “People are terrified. They kicked Ollie North out and put in a prayer room. We’ve got a new trans policy. You’re not allowed to be transphobic,” one source said. Other changes that would have been alien in the Ailes era include the creation of a workforce and diversity council. “People’s heads are blowing up,” one insider said.

“It’s not the Wild West anymore; there are now policies and procedures,” a network spokesperson told me.
"We are now being forced to consider non-white, non-male humans as real persons."

What does "Fox & Friends Weekend" (yes, that's a thing) think of Israel killing innocent Palestinians, including children, during the embassy opening?  "Meh."

Quote:Fox News host Pete Hegseth offered a curious response to Ed Henry when his Fox & Friends Weekend co-host reminded him that innocent people died in the violent clashes between Palestinians in Gaza and Israeli security forces.

Hamas, the terrorist organization that controls Gaza, urged unarmed civilians to rush the Israel-Gaza border as US and Israeli officials celebrated the opening of the new embassy in Jerusalem miles away earlier this month. More than 50 Palestinians were killed by Israeli forces — some were Hamas members, others were innocent children.

On Fox & Friends Sunday morning, Ed Henry tried to point this out.

“We should separate out,” Henry said. “There could be some innocent Palestinians, including children, who were killed.”

“Because Hamas told them to go to the front of the line and get shot!” Hegseth said.

“Okay, but there are some innocent people who died,” Henry reiterated.

“Meh,” Hegseth replied with a shrug.

“Caught in the crossfire, whatever it is, children, let’s just point that out,” Henry added.

“Meh,” Hegseth said.
This clip, though...

Tell me this couldn't have been a deleted scene from Idiocracy.
Trump found a media outlet that likes a leader more than Fox News likes him:

Fox Business went after Seattle, calling it a "socialist hellhole" and the city "where freedom died along with every good singer from the 90s."

Yeah!  That damn socialist hellhole where [checks notes] construction is so massive that it has led the usage of towering construction cranes for three straight years:

Seattle also leads in home price increases and pay increases. Sounds terrible.
