Hillary Clinton has no love lost for Fox News Channel.
But the depths of Clinton’s desire for revenge are stunning.
And Hillary Clinton revealed this sick plan to shut down Fox News.
Hillary Clinton and her daughter Chelsea used a promotional tour for their Apple+ show “Gutsy” to air their grievances about Fox News.
Chelsea Clinton claimed the only reason Rupert Murdoch launched Fox News in October 1996 was in reaction to the Clinton presidency.
“We were the reason that Fox News was created. Because Rupert Murdoch recognized a great market opportunity,” Clinton stated.
Hillary Clinton then launched into a familiar left-wing diatribe about how Fox News spreads “misinformation” and that it was up to the corporate media and liberal press – as if there is a difference between the two – to push back against Fox News.
“There’s an element to this which is quite frustrating because they get away with it,” Hillary added. “The so-called mainstream media, even the so-called progressive media, is just not as relentless in rebutting, refuting, and making clear that this is nothing but a play for profits at the cost of truth.”
Clinton pushes the falsehood that the rest of the corporate press clings to that the preferred political narrative of the Democrat Party is “the truth” and that any information that contradicts Democrats’ version of events is misinformation and a dangerous conspiracy theory.
But in trying to use an example of how to counteract Fox News, Clinton spread misinformation herself.
Clinton lobbed a familiar complaint on the left about how Fox News hosts did not relentlessly promote the ineffective COVID vaccines and falsely claimed that Fox News requires all its employees to get vaccinated.
“It might have mattered if one of the other networks for 10 days said, ‘Do you know one of the very first people to get vaccinated in the U.K. in December of 2020 was Rupert Murdoch? Did you know that Fox News requires all of their employees to be vaccinated?’” Clinton continued.
This is not true.
Fox News never required vaccination.
Any employee that did not receive the vaccine could submit to a testing and masking protocol.
Fox did eventually require all employees at its New York City headquarters to get vaccinated, but that was to comply with a vaccine mandate imposed by Mayor Bill de Blasio.
Clinton then closed out her rant by demanding Big Tech censor Fox News and conservatives on the baseless grounds that their views represented misinformation.
“Tech companies, the rest of journalism, ordinary people with platforms, we haven’t done enough to point out the dangers, point out the falsehoods, point out the hypocrisy,” Clinton fumed.
“There is a path to limit the damage they’ve done, but it requires leaders on the side of facts and evidence. We now have that with Biden, and he’s making slow progress in trying to open people’s minds and eyes to what reality actually is,” Clinton declared.
