Fox News is dedicated, not to journalism of course, but to gaslighting. It’s the perfect term for their modus operandi of propaganda peddling. "Gaslighting or gas-lighting is a form of mental abuse in which false information is presented with the intent of making victims doubt their own memory, perception and sanity,” Wiki notes. “Instances may range simply from the denial by an abuser that previous abusive incidents ever occurred, up to the staging of bizarre events by the abuser with the intention of disorienting the victim. The term owes its origin to the play ‘Gas Light’ and its film adaptations."
