Gabriel Lemay Have you seen the Democratic debates my friend? The effects it would have on our economy would change this country forever if any of them were elected. Our children would suffer for our mistakes.

Fox n friends is tvs dumbest news show ? But the brightest ? Yeah! What a mouth full of ignorance and it speaks of its own filth . and problems and the reason those problems are still in existence is because it puts a different name on the problems than its original owner of the problems .It gropes the wall in front of it and cannot see what it gropes . And it acts so weird that his own boss fields weird for it does not have any human abilities to interact with humans .....

Well Fox & Friends made a huge mistake this AM ! Interviewed KELLY LEFFNER! She doesn't know a peanut from a watermelon. She was given the job because our governor obviously owes someone something. Our last Sunday pollical shows were like me. SHOCKED. They came right out and ask WHERE DID SHE COME FROM out of the blue.

All other "news" outlets are Dem propagandists. Fox is by far the highest rated cable news shows and has been for years. Just check the Nielsen Ratings. The Senate will acquit Trump and he wins again in 2020 by a larger margin.

All Fox and Friends did was do what the rightwing has been doing for awhile. Get one insignificant individual to cover something small, get three smaller outlets owned by the same people to cover it, and by doing that generate enough hype to get a larger organization or influencer to talk about. This is the same thing, only its progressed to the presidential level. For a long while the left has needed something similar, and it is slowly taking shape but hasn't yet reached the national level. - Keep doing your bit to balance the scales.

I think the word you're looking for is projection. Which, unironically,is exactly what you're doing. Fox News and all the other facisist media outlets you consume, have created your fearful and paranoid state of mind. Your devotion to Trump is directly related to your own racial, social,and economic Insecurities!

Vidoushi Purgaus (2 months ago)
Lol Trump didn't anticipate that people would be monitoring his habits so closely. But the fact that Trump relies on Fox and Friends as a source of informantion really bugs me. He's the president! He's expected to be the most well-informed man in The White House! But no, here he is rooting for an entertainment show like an addict who needs his/her dose of tv serials. I just can't wait for 2020.

Hunter Riegert (2 months ago)
I grew up in a very Republican household and as a kid every single morning without fail my family would wake up at 6 am and turn on fox and friends. To this day when I hear the fox and friends jingle my body gives a involuntary whence, and honestly they still watch it just like they've been doing for 16 years. it's really weird, at a time I honestly thought it was regular news just like any other news show it wasn't until left the nest and started watching new from other sources that I realized how really forked up the show is. I'm not sure if it's just blinding sentiment from my childhood but for a while I wanted to believe that the show had a genuine light spirited nature to it but it got a point where now after not seeing it for a long time I can't believe the places and topics the show will stoop to just to pad time out it's really sad to watch now.

When my dad was alive, he'd watch fox especially the big three in the morning. I decided i'd watch it a few years back and realized this was not my pops' news team any more. In the last three years, i've not watched even a teeny little bit. As well, i turned to MSNBC and haven't missed fox for a second.

can we get fox banned from using the word NEWS, they are a conservative opinion channel. nothing more. they were founded by a millionaire because the news wasn't talking about issues that concern the 1%. so he invented a channel to push his narrative agenda and force REAL ACTUAL INVESTIGATIVE JOURNALISTS to react to information that just isn't worthy of being on the news. they should be classified a foriegn adversary due to the damage they have done and continue to do to our democracy.
