Fox News Isn’t Even Trying Anymore

For indispensable reporting on the coronavirus crisis, the election, and more, subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter.


Maybe the Republican Party’s struggles are driving Fox News employees to hit the bottle. Because there’s no other explanation for this video clip. Make sure to watch the second half, which is arguably worse than the first.

What I love about this is that, while it’s conceivable that the Fox News producers mixed their clips up, the host and his guest plow on through like there isn’t a problem. Like they aren’t literally creating attacks out of thin air.

Dear Reader,

This feels like the most important fundraising drive since I've been CEO of Mother Jones, with staggeringly high stakes and so much uncertainty. In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," I try to unpack the reality we all face and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism: We need to raise $400,000 to help cover the vital reporting projects we have planned, and right now is no time to pull back.
