From the March 12 edition of Fox News' Tucker Carlson Tonight:
TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): You don't want anyone to know that you were watching forbidden videos, there is a penalty for that. This is what an authoritarian society looks like. It's a place where the group in charge will tolerate no criticism at all. That's what we're becoming. It was only a matter of time before they came for Fox News.
Of the top dozen news networks in the United States, only Fox has an alternative view. The other channels speak with one voice. They are united on every issue every time. They are in almost perfect sync with the priorities of the Democratic Party.
Fox News stands apart. The opinion shows on this channel have another perspective. You might consider that valuable diversity, something different in a sea of sameness. We're grateful that Fox supports that. The left does not support that. They would like Fox News shut down tomorrow. The other news channels agree with that. They would like it, too, they're trying to do it now.
That's where Media Matters comes in. Media Matters is a George Soros-funded lobbying organization whose sole mission is to punish critics of the Democratic Party. Media Matters often uses propaganda from the Southern Poverty Law Center to bully corporations, news executives, and tech companies into punishing people it doesn't like. Not surprisingly, the media love Media Matters.
“It's about decency,” cries the eunuch, “We must have decency” -- by which the eunuch means “less disobeying, more obedience,” -- stop criticizing the program, or else. This is the face of state media. Why does Fox even exist, they wonder?
We have 11 other perfectly good cable channels, all of them approved by management, and obedient to the people in charge. How could anybody watch something different? Fox can't be legitimate, they must be lying. Their viewers must be stupid.
