Ordinary Decent Liars of Fox News Furious With High-Profile Liars Of Fox News
The reputations of “ordinary, decent liars” at Fox News are being dragged through the mud by the buffoonish and dangerous actions of a few. This is the claim being made by newsroom journalists who say revelations about the monumental liars Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity, are making life hell for them.
The claim comes hard on the heels of the sensational news that top presenters and station managers privately regard Donald Trump as a “major whack job”.
A man in a balaclava who gave his name as “the short straw”, agreed to speak out on behalf of rank-and-file liars at the station, on condition of absolute anonymity. But first, he stressed that station managers are always warm and supportive. “In no way are they the vindictive swine they’re portrayed as, in some media outlets?” Nevertheless, he flatly refused to show his face.
“We, the ordinary decent liars of Fox, are responsible for the daily drip-drip of small lies poisoning the waters of American democracy,” he explained. “Every week we churn out biased stories that ignore salient facts about poverty, crime, unemployment and identity politics. We elevate survey claims based on absurdly unreliable methods and push them relentlessly on social media. These allow the A-listers to treat them as legitimate news reports and then dramatically inflate the lower level lies they contain, via their own sensational high-profile shows.”
“Our work is important but also pretty thankless stuff? Not like the flashy, primetime bravado of the A-listers. We never made a lot of money but we were able to take pride in what we did and at least we could say we had our dignity. That’s all gone now.”
“Now that the curtain’s been pulled back and the public can see who’s pulling the levers, we’re being laughed at. People who once had to pretend to respect us, are now openly laughing at us.”
“The rot all started back in 2017,” the man continued, “when Fox dropped the network’s ‘Fair and Balanced‘ motto. That was a beautiful slogan that perfectly described the way we work and we were all proud of it. ‘We Report, You Decide‘ was another marvellous description of our ethos. But the new one, ‘Most Watched, Most Trusted‘, I don’t like? Frankly it sounds like we’re hiding something!
