The stories like this are popping up lately, and people are starting to think there might be a chance that Fox News might be end-of-life.
I kind of have a problem with this. Reality has a well-known liberal bias, but I have also noticed of late that liberals (myself included) have a reality bias.
We keep thinking that logical and sane things are the things that are going to happen. But we have a Pumpkin for president, don’t we? Nazis are working at the White House. A Rethuglican body-slammed a reporter and then won his election the NEXT DAY.
Why do we think a bunch of sexual harassment and assault scandals will bring down an organization that prides itself on generating moral panics? I don’t think anything like that will happen. I think they will solidify their troglodyte base just exactly because of these things. Just like the Montana voters who liked that their new congressputz body-slammed a Guardian reporter and broke his left-wing eyeglasses.
The 21st century American is, on average, an asshole. So why would they shut down Fox News?
