NEW and important reporting from @JaneMayerNYer: The Making of the Fox News White House | The New Yorker newyorker.com/magazine/2019/…
💥Inside the @FoxNews-Trump propaganda machine: Hannity's become a West Wing adviser b/c of “utter breakdown of any normal decision-making in the White House…The place has gone off the rails.” So Fox TV personalities fill the "vacuum.” One—Guilfoyle—is like family, dating Don Jr
🤯Trump watches ‘Fox & Friends’ morning talk show like he's watching friends. He's reportedly RANKED the LOYALTY of Fox figures on a 1-10 scale. Bret Baier—on the "news" side—is only a 6; Hannity—a solid 10. And Steve Doocy of Fox & Friends is so adoring, Trump gives him a 12😳
"Murdoch regales friends with Trump’s latest inanities." Trump knows Murdoch denigrates him behind his back ("fucking idiot" per Wolff's book). But having the media mogul's—and Fox's—support is essential for Trump b/c "it's very important to his base." #FoxNews #Propaganda
Sounds like a mafia family: #KUSHNER has an "almost filial status" w/ #Murdoch—talks to him every day, shows respect, asks for advice. And Kushner regularly assures Murdoch that the WH is a smooth-running operation, contrary to many reports suggesting chaos. #propaganda #FoxNews
"Radicalization model"—#FoxNews isn't taking the temperature of the base, it's raising it. For Trump & Fox, “fear is a business strategy." New @JaneMayerNYer piece on Murdoch/Fox propaganda machine's bond with Trump/WH is hair-raising & necessary reading. Who's running the show?
@JaneMayerNYer Looks like Trump's propaganda arm @FoxNews could get a letter from @HouseJudiciary too >> #FoxNews killed the Stormy Daniels story b/c Rupert wanted him to win, Jane Mayer reports in this blockbuster report on the "tabloid synergy" between media mogul Murdoch & media hound Trump.
.@JaneMayerNYer: Has Trump abused his power to help friends & punish enemies? He ordered his economic adviser to block a major merger—to hurt CNN & help Fox. Fox killed a story to affect the election. #FoxNews as an arm of WH raises questions about our democracy. #AMR #Propaganda
#FoxNews gave Trump a debate question beforehand, killed the hush money story—to affect the election. Now Fox populates the WH & he favors Fox, basically his propaganda arm. Top US media outlet blurs & crosses the line betw news & politics every day for Trump, says @JaneMayerNYer
#BREAKING Democrats reject #FoxNews for 2020 DNC primary debates, citing @NewYorker report on "inappropriate" (#propaganda) relationship between Fox and Trump by @JaneMayerNYer washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/styl…
