Chelsea Clinton says that Fox News was formed just to go after the Clintons by Rupert Murdoch. She says that he saw an opportunity and grabbed it. That’s ridiculous. What he saw was a liberal monopoly in the news business and knowing that half the country is comprised of conservatives, they would hold a huge advantage over everyone else. They would have 50% of the country, while the liberal news organizations would have to share the other half of the country.
“We were the reason that Fox News was created. Because Rupert Murdoch recognized a great market opportunity.”
“Climate change illuminated where Fox News was willing to go and its destructive impact.”
“I’m 42, and when I was in junior high, two-thirds of Americans knew human activity is partly responsible for climate change. The right proved to themselves, ‘We can hit people with relentless misinformation and every night pipe into their homes to disbelieve scientists — what else could be possible?’ Today, with COVID, it’s the same playbook.”
Yes, Fox News did spend a lot of time on the Clintons, but that could be because the Clintons had more scandals than Carter had liver pills. As soon as they moved into the White House, Hillary sicced the FBI onto Billy Ray Dale and fired the entire travel office and handed the job to a cousin of bills and other close associates. Independe4nt Counsel Robert Ray was assigned to the case.
Dale was accused of embezzlement but was found not guilty. Hillary was found to have lied, but Ray did not file charges. Travel office employees were given other jobs, but Hillary had to remove the people she turned the travel office and replace them with honest employees. The travel office served at the pleasure of the president and could be removed just because he wanted to, but Hillary tried to get them thrown in prison in hopes that she could keep her people in place. The scandal became known as Travelgate.
“The so-called mainstream media, even the so-called progressive media, is just not as relentless in rebutting, refuting and making clear that this is nothing but a play for profits at the cost of truth,” Hillary Clinton says of Fox News. https://t.co/sFfOieG82G pic.twitter.com/25Pw704Ndp

“There’s an element to this which is quite frustrating because they get away with it,” Hillary added then, arguing that progressive media had failed to do enough to fight back against right-leaning media.
“The so-called mainstream media, even the so-called progressive media, is just not as relentless in rebutting, refuting and making clear that this is nothing but a play for profits at the cost of truth,” she said.
The former Democratic presidential nominee went on to suggest that tech companies should also be doing more to curb outlets like Fox News, saying, “Tech companies, the rest of journalism, ordinary people with platforms, we haven’t done enough to point out the dangers, point out the falsehoods, point out the hypocrisy. There is a path to limit the damage they’ve done, but it requires leaders on the side of facts and evidence. We now have that with Biden, and he’s making slow progress in trying to open people’s minds and eyes to what reality actually is.”
It is not Fox News’ fault that Hillary is patently dishonest. She created scandals wherever she went. She ran a pay-for-play operation out of the State Department. She used an illegal server with no security. It was determined that a foreign country received copies of all of her emails, many of which were classified. Many more than the FBI claims they seized from Trump. What was easier to steal? Hillary’s emails on the web or Trump’s documents locked up in his basement with Secret Service agents on duty 24/7?
And don’t forget the selling of American uranium to Russia for which the Clinton Foundation was given $145 million dollars. Or the half a million Bill received for a 20-minute speech okayed by Hillary’s State Department. I just touched the surface on their crimes.
