There was a brief period when Fox News didn’t air 2020 election nonsense. It probably wasn’t because they’d had a crisis of conscience; it was almost certainly because they didn’t want to get sued.

Trump Bragged That He Was Impeached Twice, And That Being Punished Only Made Him ‘Worse’

The year’s second Conservative Political Action Conference was as off-the-rails as one would expect. Don Jr. tried to be funny. Lauren Boebert got made fun of by AOC.

A Former Fox Exec Says He Desperately Tried To Convince Rupert Murdoch That Fox News Is Doing ‘Real Damage’ To America
