Fox News, the outlet that has perhaps been most instrumental in orchestrating the Back the Blue campaign, refused to air an ad that featured Capitol police officers criticizing the Republican politicians who have tried to downplay the events of Jan. 6.
Fox News was one of the loudest voices saying we should “Back the Blue,’’ no matter what they do during the protests against police brutality last year, so one would think that they would be all for airing an ad in support of the officers who put their lives on the line that day, right?
Meidas Touch, the company who produced the ad, has said that the news outlet called them last Friday to tell them that they wouldn’t be airing it. “We couldn’t have fathomed in our wildest imaginations that even a Fox News would reject an ad that simply condemns the insurrection, and condemns people who support the insurrection,” Ben Meiselas, co-founder of Meidas Touch, told the Los Angeles Times. “What Fox has really become is a fascist echo chamber gatekeeper for their base.”
Who knew all Fox News needed to temper its support of law enforcement was cops being critical of a failed insurrection?
@ZincyWhy should it? Most of the people yelling about the "dangers" of critical race theory are either entirely ignorant of what it actually entails or are actively pushing disinformation to stigmatize it, and treating something primarily taught in law school that broadly discusses the persistence of systemic bias and privilege as if it's some kind of communist plot to make kids hate themselves and/or America is frankly idiotic.
It's odd this does not in any way cause you any concern.
