Fox News is re-launching its hateful, race-baiting, conspiracy theorist, and downright ridiculous website Fox Nation into a subscription-based digital video streaming service with “right-leaning commentary.”
The New York Times reported that on February 20, “Fox News is set to announce Fox Nation, a stand-alone subscription service available without a cable package” designed to “‘appeal to the Fox superfan.” Unmentioned in the Times report is that the Fox Nation brand is not new.
Fox Nation, as a Fox entity, has existed and operated since 2009, featuring some of the very worst of right-wing commentary, smears, and conspiracy theories. Media Matters and others have archived some of Fox Nation’s past content, which has been wiped from its website. Here is a preview of what might be seen on Fox News’ new video service, taken from Fox Nation’s past content (also, if you see any headlines that are missing, please send them to us so we can add them):
