Trump's Guilty Verdict - The Immediate Aftermath

Decoding Fox News

Fox & Friends featured an interview with Trump that was supposed to be 90 minutes long yet they just recycled and cut up the same 15 minutes over four hours. Trump made a slightly racist remark to Rachel Campos-Duffy. Will Cain fawned all over him. Gov. Doug Burgum called for people to rise up against the Trump verdict. Jesse Watters predicted a revolution while Greg Gutfeld implied they’ll be riots if Trump doesn’t win in 2024. I also do a bit about Judge Jeanine Pirro at the end.

Trump in The Bronx: A Smokescreen of Lies

Decoding Fox News

This episode is a journey that starts with one media savvy YouTube personality that Fox News tries to pawn off as a random man from The Bronx. I picked up on some clues that many of the “every day New Yorkers,” featured in segments about Trump’s rally in The Bronx were really politicians and activists. I created a Twitter thread about it Fox News responded. The entire thing comes full circle. I also discovered a Black Trump supporter who is obsessed with the Proud Boys - things got weird.

Trump's Toadies Take Manhattan!

Decoding Fox News

Fox News completely forgot about pro-Palestinian protesters and the Israel-Hamas War choosing instead to focus on Trump’s criminal hush money trial in Manhattan. The network featured Trump’s toadies - a legion of lawmakers desperate to suck up to their dear leader. Jesse Watters claimed Trump was meditating in court - not nodding off. Judge Jeanine Pirro clutched her pearls over Biden’s joke “I hear you’re free on Wednesdays.” Laura Ingraham defended a NFL kicker’s commencement speech and Rachel Campos-Duffy pitted Black Americans against Latino Americans. Eric Shawn continued to drop truth bombs and Steve Doocy went rogue!

Fox News: The College Protest Channel!

Decoding Fox News

Fox News dedicated over 2/3 of its airtime to covering the college protests last week. The network often ran commercial free hours of live feeds from UCLA or Columbia University. Fox portrayed the protesters as violent antisemites who were determined to destroy the country. Some of them even had nose rings. The network cited matching tents as proof of a nefarious foreign actors fueling the demonstrations. More than one Fox hosts or guest compared the protests to January 6th. Eric Shawn went rogue and called Trump a liar twice during a short segment about his hush money trial. Judge Jeanine tore into Gov. Kristi Noem on behalf of all dog owners.

An Exercise in Jury Intimidation, Trump Worship and Lies About Israel

Simpson's double murder trial and said the criminal trial would be a laugh riot. As usual it was a whole lotta stupid.
