Do you believe Fox News is just a right-wing propaganda network that tends to Donald Trump and his supporters? Well, that may just be the case. Newly obtained documents revealed on Tuesday just how cozy the Trump administration is with Fox News and Fox Business.
Communications obtained through FOIA by the non-profit Democracy Forward found that administration officials tried to shape the coverage across Fox.
According to the documents, there was an instance where a Treasury official told a Fox Business Network employee to make changes to an article about Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin – to which Fox Business happily agreed.
“This kind of cozy, behind-the-scenes interaction between government employees and members of the media raises alarm bells, and such direct intervention could be illegal,” Democracy Forward told the Daily Beast, accusing Fox of acting as a propaganda channel for the Trump administration.
This is the kind of things that are seen in totalitarian nations. Not in a democracy like the United States. We must not allow this to continue. Remember to vote vote vote!
