This might be a fun thread, chronicling the alternate "fair and balanced" universe.

Today's top story: Manafort juror: Mueller team's star witness 'deserves a special place in Hell'

No mention that "Mueller team's star witness" is also Trump's former deputy campaign chair.

Apparently Manafort's crimes were also not that bad. He was really only guilty of being caught, and was only caught because of the witch hunt.

This article aggregated a bunch of funny tweets about Fox News' coverage of this scandal, or lack thereof:

My work has blocked Fox News, but I look at the app to see how it's coverage compares to everything else. currently, the second article is about how Trump will survive attacks from the Dems. The third article is about Tiger Woods saying you have to respect the office of the president. Further down, there are 2 articles about Mollie Tibbetts. Not a single mention of McCain anywhere.

This a really long (7K words) but really, really good article about Tucker Carlson.

The mystery of Tucker Carlson
Quote:
The question, What happened to Tucker Carlson? is worth answering. If we can figure out how an intelligent writer and conservative can go from writing National Magazine Award–nominated articles and being hailed by some of the best editors in the business, to shouting about immigrants on Fox News, perhaps we can understand what is happening to this country, or at least to journalism, in 2018.

Sometimes Fox News feels like some sort of bizarro Onion.

Current lead headline: ALL TRUMP'S FAULT? Washington Post calls president "complicit" as Hurricane Florence poised to ravage Carolina coast

Much to the surprise of no one here, Fox News has difficulty with vocabulary. "Complicit" doesn't mean "all their fault".

The actual WaPo editorial.

It is impossible to take Tucker Carlson seriously when he has permanent "who farted?" face.

Tucker Carlson kind of makes it understandable why his mother abandoned him as a kid and never looked back.

Not that it matters to his followers but [expletive] Carlson got owned. Looked like a damn moron there. It was glorious.
