Unfair and unbalanced

Let me try to get this straight. All you have to do is be a compulsive liar, con man, and sexual predator, and Fox “Noise” will silently pay millions of dollars in undisclosed settlements to your victims. And then turn around and pay the predator $25 million to leave your tainted corporation. Then again, similar behavior can get you elected president of the United States. And just recently a dozen or so more alleged victims of sexual harassment at Fox “Noise” have come forward with their claims. Using Trump’s limited words of description, Fox News Corporation is a disaster.

Is it any wonder why Trump views Fox as his go-to network for disseminating his rants of misinformation? Being the original purveyor of “fake news” under the guise of “fair and balanced” for 20 years now, Fox “Noise” and Trump are made for each other. One has been a propaganda machine for the Republican Party for years, and the other can’t see the truth with his own eyes. We’re in a bizarre world where up is down, and down is up. I believe Fox CEO Rupert Murdoch was purported to say, “Don’t tell ’em the truth, tell ’em what they want to hear.” And that’s what the Donald has been doing for a long time now.

Sure would like to see those tax returns. Plain and simple. If you have nothing to hide, wouldn’t disclosing those documents finally stick it to all those antagonizing liberals once and for all? Come on, Prez, show us your cards.
