Fox host Mister Meghan McCain Ben Domenech let his cards show on Fox Monday. Video and transcript via Media Matters:
“I’m concerned that this latest whistleblower is just going to lead to more behavior on the part of Facebook to silence people who they would like to silence. And those tend to be people who have beliefs that are a lot more like yours and mine than the beliefs of the people in Silicon Valley who run the place,” Domenech said to Republican Congresswoman Cynthia Lummis.
Sounds a little bit paranoid, Ben. Unless you were noticing the number of tweets hoping that your network would be shut down, because Fox is as much of a disinformation death merchant as Facebook, if not more.
14/ While Facebook is a key focus of these stories, let’s not forget what’s happening on other platforms. We filed this report on Friday. https://t.co/cJ0Vaf5Nvj

Good morning. Can Facebook go away again, today? And maybe take Fox News with it?

Today’s hearing is about Facebook, when is the hearing about Fox tv?

You know, I have no problem with US Government and the EU investigating Facebook/Instagram, Twitter, etc but let’s also investigate FOX News for misinformation as well

Fox News needs to shut down for dangerous content and misinformation. I said the same about Facebook before it crashed. Second time lucky? #DeleteFoxNews

If Facebook must be regulated, so must Fox News be regulated! Fox news has caused the great divide in the USA. They are a propaganda machine worse than Facebook. The opinions of their presenters have impacted the hearts & minds of half of the American people for evil & division🇿🇦

Yesterday Facebook, today Fox News?

Without the 15 years of ground work on gaslighting, anti-intellectualism, reality-distortion, & extremism via Fox News, facebook wouldn’t have been nearly as effective. https://t.co/Kf5V5Qoci4

Okay, Ben Domenech, maybe your paranoia is justified, because your disinformation platform definitely deserves the Facebook treatment.
