“There’s one network, Fox, that’s a propaganda voice for them,” the 66-year-old media mogul said.
“It’s certainly legal. But it does pose problems for our democracy when the news is ‘dumbed-down’.”
Not to have their good name bashed, Fox News, maintaing their journalistic integrity, responded by saying:
“Ted is understandably bitter having lost his ratings, his network and now his mind – we wish him well.”
Arguably, one could say that it is up to the individual to keep themselves informed, so that they might be an effective member of the democratic system. However it is sad, when the major voice in America chooses not to keep the public informed, by only reporting half the story.
A lie of omission is still a lie.
