Chris Wallace, who ignored massive wildfires in the western United States on Fox News Sunday, and who did not ask a single climate crisis question in his 2016 debate, announces that he'll ignore the issue in this debate as well.
Maybe his house has to flood / catch on fire for him to actually pay attention to climate.

This isn't a political game. Entire communities are being burnt to the ground, record flooding and hurricanes destroys entire areas. It gets worse every year. The absolute least that a "journalist" can do is ask about the issue.

Rupert Murdoch when Fox News loses one hour to further-right Newsmax:
Fox personalities constantly rail at elites, but Murdoch's elitism is not the sort that you hear about there.

the thing about watching this terrible show is that there are countless examples of dumb hypocrisy every single night.

and for the record, plenty of legislatures have used gender-neutral language, like ohio here as @bubbaprog has noted. lsc.ohio.gov/documents/priv…
@bubbaprog as of 2013 half the states used gender-neutral language governing.com/archive/gov-ge…

but this can get some cheap engagement and that is all that matters
tucker's grift right now is giving the same empty calories to right-wing audiences as everyone else, only he pretends that he's somehow better than the rest of them. he's exactly the same.

top congressional republicans refuse to acknowledge the election results more than a month after the fact, and the story in mainstream outlets is just basically "welp trump is out of options ok that's all"
the trump-focus ends up creating the expectation that things will go back to some sort of "normal" when he's gone. but if you look at the forces shaping gop behavior (that is, right-wing media), it's clear that we're never going back. that's the story.
to the contrary, this dumb coup just sets the bar going forward. it's not just that right-wing media and their audience are for this sort of thing, it's that any gop politician who doesn't do at least this / support this is a stealth democrat (and to them, democrats are evil)
