Fox News hires former DNC chair Donna Brazile

Fox said on Monday that it has hired Donna Brazile, the former interim Democratic National Committee chair and a long-time CNN commentator before she became embroiled in controversy in 2016.

CNN forced Ms Brazile to resign as an on-air contributor in October 2016 after emails revealed that she had tipped off Ms Clinton's aides about questions likely to be asked by CNN moderators during the debates and town hall meetings carried by CNN.

File this one under "bizarre", and also questionable if it should be in the fascist nation thread.

Last night Trump boasted that ISIS was going to be defeated overnight, and we'd be hearing about it today. Great.

Fox News is carrying seemingly an exclusive story that the caliphate has crumbled. This should be a pretty big deal, right? No other media outlet seems to be reporting on it. The Pentagon will not comment on it. The White House hasn't called any sort of press conference to announce this victory. The lead is already getting buried on Fox News' website.

And as for the article itself, this is near North Korea levels of propaganda. USA, you're my hero!

Quote:
Troops here are now bringing down the black flags of ISIS. The flags no longer fly over the town, instilling fear.


Quote:
None of the main surviving ISIS leaders have been caught inside Baghouz. Instead, they left their men to fight alone. It’s thought they prepared ahead for the insurgency.

The scale of the devastation here is incredible. And everyone acknowledges that without U.S. support, it would have taken far longer.


Quote:
For four-and-a-half years, ISIS held this territory, ruling over it with an iron fist. It was the terrorist group’s heartland – and they were so dug in that the only way to push them back was to flatten whole villages. The devastation here goes on for miles – and craters like this are a reminder of the critical role played by U.S. airpower. Military jets still fly overhead.

SDF fighters are all so grateful to the U.S., not just for their help in the battle, but now for its decision to leave troops here when it’s done.

Earlier in the week, BBC World News was showing footage of (I don't know the right term, so I'll call them) anti-ISIS fighters dancing after they felt they had successfully taken back the last tiny bit of ISIS territory.

Is anyone able to read this in a way that doesn't make Brit Hume seem insane?

Sweet tactical fanny pack, dork.

I read this this morning and found it to be very, very good.

It's about people's experiences of Fox News poisoning their parents brains and relationships. Many of us know what that's like.
