I don't disinclude Fox from MSM :3 and are subject to similar forces (need to make money off of subscribers and advertising in an always on news cycle etc etc etc).I actually think Fox News, is throwing its power around. They are the media power arm of 45's government - parroting ideas that right wing online sources are making up and vice-versa.
I think the point of them being the power arm of 4t is redundant; I think that is most MSM. With every tweet with every utterance of 45...they promote the US gov't.
Though Fox News (I've never really viewed it as news but more as entertainment) haven't been around as long as the Big Boys (such as NYT) and thus haven't had as many sinful Manufacturing of Consent acts (promoting Vietnam war, Korean War, etc etc etc). You should watch that doc Manufacturing Consent and pay attention to the media that were around at that time that are there to enforce and create social norms.
When 45 gets out, then another MSM outlet will become the govts mouthpeice. As it always has been (cf. US involvement in Vietnam).
I just wish all MSM would stop lying so much and get down to their important task of sense making so that we all can make our decisions. That is more important than petty tribalisms.
I get my news from google news. Which lists news from all over the world and not just USA and the regular suspects.
I am pleasently surprised to see the overton window/MSM social norms to switch to such things as openly discussing the occult, magic and UAPs without the horselaugh derision :3
I also pray more MSM will drop the brain dead and not useful tribal markers of Left and Right. The French Revolution is looooong over lol
A difference with Fox is that I haven't yet seen them go after youtubers for cutting into their marketshare. That doesn't mean that they haven't done it.
Maybe there's hope for MSM,
