Fox News Doing Its Job

David Bauder / Associated Press:
NowThis has attracted attention by creating pointed media criticism with videos illustrating inconsistencies by Fox News personalities  —  NEW YORK (AP) — Some of the day's most pointed media criticism lets its subjects do the talking.  —  The news outlet NowThis has attracted attention with videos that illustrate inconsistencies by Fox News personalities, like one posted Tuesday that contrasts the news network’s treatment of Michelle Obama with her successor as first lady, Melania Trump.

Clips show Fox commentators criticizing Michelle Obama’s wardrobe, saying she needed to drop a few pounds and calling her the “merchant of death.” Meanwhile, Melania Trump is called stunning, spectacular and “a woman of strength who should be revered.”

Back-to-back clips show Fox’s Dana Perino suggesting that Michelle Obama gets a pass from criticism and, at another point, saying “she’s carrying a bag that costs $1,200 and nobody said a thing.”

“You can’t dispute video when you see the hypocrisy very directly,” said Athan Stephanopoulos, NowThis’ president.
First the "Twinkie" defense, now the "Fox News" defense. They incite murder & sedition, then their incitement is used as a defense by the true believer mental case.
