This shows how influential Fox News is and how closely tied to the White House it is too.
This is a remarkable indication of the role Fox plays in driving GOP primary voter behavior: R senators basically want assurances the network won't stir up their base https://t.co/SzDuUvorRf

Unfortunately for Fox News characters like Gregg Jarrett, blowhard partisan infotainment doesn’t hold up well in the face of guilty pleas and overwhelming case evidence. Someone should maybe remind Gregg how much stuff the FBI seized from Cohen in April https://t.co/cqVg4kTFdj

Lead story on @foxnews website: no news in events today involving Cohen. Lead headline: “nothing to see.”
2;d article: Hilary’s emails. Seriously. And THOSE, unlike new allegations of criminality by trump and his company, are REALLY important.
Fox creates alternate reality.

I try to do this only every two months or so, but JUST IMAGINE if a Democratic president with no military record — Clinton, Obama, a hypothesized HRC — went on a rant like this.
Imagine the tone from GOP Senators and Fox News. https://t.co/y0pMccKEGr

Any talk about trump’s enduring popularity with a good chunk of the American public really needs to begin with the fact that the largest cable news apparatus in the country is quite literally a campaign arm for him.

This is a day-by-day look at Fox's "caravan" coverage before and after election day. This week the subject dominated Fox's pro-Trump talk shows, in anticipation of more migrants arriving along the border. Data via @tvThirdEyeF pic.twitter.com/9CSIl2e9pc

Fox News talks about George Soros a lot. Its conservative talk shows blame him for all sorts of ills, sometimes even pushing into conspiracy theories.
But the head of Soros's philanthropic group said Fox won't let him on air to rebut the wild accusations. https://t.co/oRxb8mA4tV

After initially letting it go unchallenged, @FoxBusiness host Stuart Varney was ultimately forced to issue an apology for @replouiegohmert's baseless, anti-Semitic attack on George Soros. https://t.co/QHFy7vU5k7
