If FOX News were to report that the election was not stolen, it would change our country.

But, they keep holding that carrot out in front of their viewers and refuse to tell them the truth.

Perhaps they believe the election was stolen? They are a big part of the cult, more than they are a "news" organization. They mostly regurgitate the "grievances" of the day.

But, they stay away from some news stories as if they were a hot stove. They would not want to do anything to harm "their" Party, it seems? There are few stories about the insurrection of January 6th, for example.

Perhaps moreso than any politician or organization, they are preventing our country from moving forward. They are a roadblock to our democracy.

America needs to understand the negative influence this foreign-owned company has upon our politics and our future.

1. I respectfully disagree

Those that still espouse The Big Lie have already left Fox viewership in droves, opting for OANN as their news source.

Those that haven't yet left Fox will just follow suit.

These folks are not interested in having their minds changed.

4. I still believe FOX is their network of choice...

...although OAN is making inroads into their viewership.

10. Fox took a tiny step towards balance and reality

They lost viewers in droves. Then they amped up the bias and lies to a 11 to stop the bleeding and get some of those viewers back.

There is no way to retrain the seals.

they are not redeemable, they are lost sheep who don't want to be found.

6. Only if it came with a successful mass cult deprogramming.

They would also have to do the same with Newsmarx, OAN, Breitbart, Bright Side, and the dozens of other online propaganda outlets.

9. Gotta agree with the sentiment

In these replies. The pilled ones would just find a news source that kept feeding their delusions and FN would be just another deep state corporation.

11. No it wouldn't. They reported that Biden won Arizona and they lost ratings and people moved on to

something far worse.

12. They will always go to the places that tell them what they want to hear.

Fox knows to try to become a news rather than a propaganda site would be suicide.

13. Trump's cultists would declare that Fox News has been compromised

And they would flee to the sites that catapult even more unhinged Right-wing propaganda.

It is naively optimistic to hope that his cultists can be swayed by anything as trivial as fact, evidence, or logic.

16. There's no convincing them, so...

We have to accept that the fight is not about convincing them but rather about preventing their cultish ignorance from being enshrined in law or public policy.

They are a lost cause, so we should focus on protecting those whom thy might harm through their Trump-addled mania.

14. Doesn't work that way. People watch that which reinforces their worldview.

Trumpsters would abandon Fox en masse and move to OAN and other outlets.
