What's Wrong With Fox News, Vol. 3, Part 6,810

How does Fox News wash their brains? Let us count the ways.
Fox News has consistently propagandized for fascism in all 14 of its defining elements.
1 -- Powerful and Continuing Nationalism - Flags image fly with vomit-inducing dizziness on Fox News. 

2 -- Disdain for the Recognition of Human Rights - Fox News has consistently defended the Bush-Cheney use of torture.

3 -- Identification of Enemies/Scapegoats as a Unifying Cause - Missing white women and black, Hispanic and Muslim villains are a Fox News staple.
4 -- Supremacy of the Military - Fox News slobbers on of the military-industrial complex daily.

5 -- Rampant Sexism - What other “news” channel interviews Hooters girls about economics? What other news channel employs only Aryan blonde women “reporters?”
6 -- Controlled Mass Media - Fox News repeated Bush-GOP talking points verbatim and ad nauseum.

7  -- Obsession with National Security – Fear is Fox News' most important product.

8 -- Religion and Government are intertwined - Fox News is the very soul of vulgar, know-nothing piety, and annually promotes anger at a nonexistent “war on Christmas.”
9 -- Corporate Power is protected - Obvious
10 -- Labor Power is suppressed - Obvious
11 -- Disdain for Intellectuals and the Arts - Fox News targets one professor or entertainer after another for destruction, and constantly attacks the idea of intellectual independence in Hollywood or the university.)

12 -- Obsession with Crime and Punishment - The flip side of Fox News’ fear mongering. 

13 -- Rampant Cronyism and Corruption - Fox News was strangely unconcerned about Enron, the $12 billion in cash that went missing among Bush's cronies in Iraq, etc. etc. etc.

14 -- Fraudulent Elections - Remember that Fox News called Florida for Bush, deliberately and wrongly creating the impression he had won. Fox News' election night newsroom was run by Bush’s cousin.
