    Donna Brazil has moved to the FOX news club; I just wonder how long she will last there in between these idiots.

    By the way, also Ryan joined FOX, being on the board of it.

    Donna delivered the Clinton presidency in '16. Oh wait. That was a logistical, management and communication breakdown. She stole defeat from the mouth of victory.

    Not her fault entirely but she was steering that ship right before it crashed into the pier.

    If Brazile was disillusioned by the DNC and Mrs. Clinton, she's in for a big, big surprise with FUX and the rnc. If they don't make a piñata out of her, she might wish she never went there, but you never know about traitors and backstabbers, sometimes they find new homes with their enemies, look at Eddy Snowden, he's sipping Russian vodka and gettin' stoned everyday in his new country, and look at julian ASSange, he loves his new home. I'm shocked that Brazile didn't run off to Russia too, poor little scorned thing.

    All this shows is that the most important color to most people isn't red or blue, but green.

    Democrats joining Fox "News" is always going to be a point of contention among various factions of the party, but I don't necessarily see it as a bad thing to go inside the bubble to make sure their millions of viewers at least hear an opposing argument to the batshit crazy nonsense they hear all day long.

    DB was never anything but a shill. She belongs on FOX along with her FL cohort.

    I think MSNBC is just as bad a Fox news in terms of bias bs. MSNBC just has the facts on their side so its a bit easier to accept. Fox news often simply ignores reporting what Trump tweets and actually focus on other news events, whereas MSNBC will pounce on every thing Trump does or says, trying to unscramble what is going on in his deranged mind.

    I believe the upper management at Fox is concerned about having sane conservatives stop watching because Fox News in becoming m0re-and-more a Trump echo chamber; they don't want to become the news platform for crazy people where Fox News has regular experts on how NASA faked the moon landing nor experts explaining 100s of other conspiracy theories. In other words, they are trying to avoid being labeled:"The Trump News Network" with the slogan "Unfake News where all conspiracy theories are real!"

    Naw, I don't believe in the ideology of polarization works.

    Trump wants the left to demonize everyone center right; he becomes more powerful the more people buy into his polarization of politics (ie Hate works, winner takes all, never comprise ever, etc). He wants YOU to hate all conservative people because you will drive them to him, not away from him. He wants you to hate conservative people for the most trivial of reason, or for no reason at all. Make them feel hated by the left, and it ensures they stick with him no matter what.

    Far left = Far Right. They are mirror images of each other.

    Fortunately, I receive only over the air channels, which means I won't need to keep a barf bucket nearby all of the time, I only need it when I'm watching the national news on my local channels of ABC, CBS, NBC and PBS, but anytime Trump is speaking, I need to grab it in a hurry. FOX will use Brazile as a tool against moderate viewers, if there are any who watch it.

    It will be interesting to hear what she has to say on Fox news and what her role will be there. Will she be political commentator on their wack0 political shows such as Hannity and Fox & friends, or be used more on their news side?

    Its my observation is once a political person is hired, the person knows their job is to limit their opinions to a set of rules create by the network; On MSNBC and CNN, they are expected to be center left. On Fox News, they are expected to be friendly toward DT, and phrase any criticism about him with the undercurrent that Trump is an honest, decent, ethical man of the highest standards who always tells the truth. Fox employees not permitted to depict Trump as a con man, nor a racist, nor homophobic, nor a white nationalist. A bit like how Disney operates, there are rules that highly restrict on-air comments when it is related to DT; there are specific terms and labels that can NOT ever be linked with Trump, even if Trump himself tweets the off limit terms, Fox news will not air it.

    Donna Brazille is not the only "woman of color" on FOX.

    Daily Kos reminded us this morning that "Diamond and Silk" are also commentators. Their own show is Fox Nation, but they regularly appeared on Fox News shows including Hannity, Fox News Sunday, Watters' World, and The Ingraham Angle, and Fox & Friend

    Like Brazille, they are former Democrats, but switched to "the dark side" after Trump announced his candidacy.

    This is what they had to say about Trump's criticism of "the squad":

    "Nancy Pelosi said the WORDS that the President used were racist. But those same words are in the Dictionary. Does that mean that the Dictionary is now racist? Should all Dictionaries be banned since Democrats are offended by words?"

    Trump is very fond of this duo, naturally.

    "dumb fuck" is also in the dictionary (the urban dictionary) so I guess that dictionary should be banned as well.

    Here are two of the definitions found under that title:

    1. A person is so incredibly stupid that it is not even funny any more.
    2. The current occupant of the White House.

    Diamond and Silk, two pieces of flotsam and jetsam hanging around past their shelf life.

    Shep Smith announced yesterday that he is leaving FOX effective immediately. That leaves Chris Wallace as the sole remaining voice of reason on Trump's favorite network.

    Just by coincidence, Bill Barr met with Rupert Murdoch at his home on Wednesday of this week:

    The breaking point for Smith apparently came Friday morning"

    On Friday, Smith accused the White House of engaging in a coverup and lying to the American people as he spoke to fellow Fox News anchor Chris Wallace.

    “We’re still not clean on this, Chris. If there’s nothing there, and that’s what they tell us, they tell us there’s nothing to this and nothing came of it, there’s a nothingburger, it wasn’t even memorable, didn’t write it down, didn’t tell you about it, because it wasn’t anything so I didn’t even remember it — with a Russian interpreter in the room at Trump Tower? If all of that, why all these lies?” he asked.

    Smith, of course, is not popular with members of Trump's cult:

    "Shepard Smith is an absolute whack job. He wears entirely too much make up and he's a liberal moron. Get this guy off the air already!"

    Trump isn't a fan either:

    Were @FoxNews weekend anchors, @ArthelNeville and @LelandVittert, trained by CNN prior to their ratings collapse? In any event, that’s where they should be working, along with their lowest rated anchor, Shepard Smith!

    Shepard smith was willing to stick to the facts even when he was pressured to spread BS that he knew was false or no other news outlets could verify (ie most of Trumps statements). He was not willing to state something as fact just because Trump said it or tweeted it. Many at Fox news treat Trump's statements as undeniable fact, like when he said "There was no quid pro quo". Fox news totally ignores the point that Trump was asking for Ukraine to manufacture an investigation into Joe Biden. They simply say "Read the transcript, The president never made any illegal deals." Fox news would have reported it the same way if Trump had suggested that Ukraine plant drugs in Joe bidden's car or home. They would spin it to something like: "Its not illegal to make suggestions to break the law, its just a suggestion, not a demand. Besides the president can't be held accountable as to what other countries decide to do"

    What Fox news tends to do is make Trump seem reasonable and factual by eliminating factual information that is important to consider, especially when it comes to Trump. Headline: "Trump gets 5 billion to build the wall" but they eliminate the fact that the 5 billion was taken from the military budget using executive order..... Sherpard Smith would refuse to spin the news like that, while the rest of Fox news would.
