William Randolph Hearst is Alive and Well
Yes, he is. This article may be from a liberal website, but that doesn't mean it's false. The influence of FoxNews drives subject matter in nearly every news outlet in this country. Pro and con, everybody discusses what Fox lays on the table. And heck, why not? It beats the hell out of addressing real problems and debating real solutions. Remember when FoxNews had real news, maintained standards resembling journalism, and was a credible source for a conservative viewpoint? I do. It's been a while. Mr Ailes is one of many powerful people, both conservative and liberal, who wants to keep us distracted and ranting, so we don't figure out the nuts and bolts of how our country is really being run.
More and more thinking conservatives are ditching Fox, perhaps because they don't have the energy to waste getting all riled up over senseless bullshit. 'Bout time.
