Liberals understand that Fox News is the only major counter to their dogged control of the media narrative and while some on the right may take issue with that assessment, the reality is that there isn’t another cable network making an effort to include a conservative viewpoint when reporting on politics.
And while it’s certainly premature, recent revelations stemming from Dominion Voting System’s $1.6 billion defamation lawsuit against Fox News have spurred a renewed effort to scrub the network from the airwaves. A firestorm resulted from Rupert Murdoch commenting on false claims about the 2020 election, saying some of the network hosts “endorsed” these claims — pouncing on this, the left pushed the talking points that Fox News knowingly lied to viewers. The irony being rich that this accusation was promulgated by CNN and MSNBC hosts.
Jon Stewart can now be added to that list, complete with a vulgar analysis of a “snake sucking its own d*ck” — granted, science is not a strong point of the left, but surely Stewart understands the anatomy of a snake.
“They were so comfortable with the idea that none of their private communications would ever come out,” Stewart said Tuesday on his podcast. “Which is why it’s so explicit to the point of saying, ‘These people are crazy with the stolen election narrative and the ways that they think it’s stolen, they’re crazy. But if we say that, we’ll lose our audience.”
Can you imagine seeing the private communications at CNN or race-baiting MSNBC?
“It’s a fascinating look at just sort of like, do you know the Ouroboros, we call it the snake sucking its own d*ck, like America has become a snake sucking its own d*ck,” he added, this being a reference to the ancient symbol of the Ouroboros, which depicted a snake eating its own tail.
“They create through AM talk radio, which is just populism and nativism drilled at the earliest age into people — a news network that’s reinforcing — that’s selecting stories that only reinforced their fear of the other, or, you know, Black or trans or anything that might be considered different,” Stewart said.
“Fear” being how the intolerant left characterizes not just opposition to their Marxist-inspired agenda, but any neutrality or adherence that doesn’t include public endorsements.
Stewart then suggested that Fox News whipped up its audience into an unruly mob, as if viewers are incapable of discerning facts on their own.
“They revved them up to that point and then it becomes impermeable. And they were aware of that. And they felt that they couldn’t — the Frankenstein that they had created, they could no longer say like, ‘Fire’s actually not that bad. We’ll be okay,’” Stewart said.
New filings made by Dominion this week claimed that Murdoch had misgivings about Fox News’ coverage following the 2020 election.
“Thanks to today’s filings, Dominion has been caught red handed again using more distortions and misinformation in their PR campaign to smear FOX News and trample on free speech and freedom of the press,” Fox said in a statement released Tuesday evening. “We already know they will say and do anything to try to win this case, but to twist and even misattribute quotes to the highest levels of our company is truly beyond the pale.”
