Transformed By Fox News

I read this a couple weeks ago: What I’ve Learned From Collecting Stories of People Whose Loved Ones Were Transformed by Fox News

I found it to be an interesting read, and I’m glad the author, Luke O’Neil, pointed out that, yes, there a a few liberals who react the “same way” when it comes to Rachel Maddow and Russiagate, but I couldn’t help wonder, are you sure it’s those watching Fox News, and not those on the left lurching further and further to the left as the Democratic party embraces more and more radical ideas: free college, free health care, free abortions, free contraceptives, the Green New Deal, illegal immigrants before American citizens, sanctuary cities, abolish the Electoral College, Hillary is a saint, and on and on and on. Of course, those who watch Fox News are going to look like the bad guys when they don’t embrace all that nonsense.

That article was published on April 9, 2019.

On April 11, 2019, the following article appeared: Boston Globe opinion writer wished he urinated on Bill Kristol’s dinner, says Nielsen must be blackballed

Two days later I was reading that and I thought the name of the Boston Globe writer was familiar. Where had I heard that before? And then it hit me. It was the same guy who was complaining about people who watched Fox News, and how horrible they became over time.

So, now I have to ask: Did any of these people watching Fox News lament not pissing in another human being’s dinner? Was the writer always like that, or did he get that way from watching CNN?

My guess is, is that most people who watch Fox News are staying relatively grounded, and those watching liberal media are becoming angrier because we refuse to come over to their dark side. It’s them who are changing, but are too blind to see it.
