    Yea idk man. I get that people are responsible for their actions; but fox is. It's fox. They know what they're doing. It's like getting upset at a child for repeating the wrong thing they learned at school. Fox is in a position of power and authority over a certain demographic, I feel like fox gets to rile those people up, release them on the world and slink away to do it again and again.

    FOX news one moment says they are news and another time says that they are entertainment. They go back and forth. I don’t watch them. I have seen this on IRbin.

    Well I guess I should believe Don Lemon or Cuomo or other news outlets as they apologize for all the fake new that has been proven just lies. This man is obviously promoting left agenda while besmirching the right. We the people don't need this pointed out to us, we are intelligent enough to be logical. Seem to me ( including this bozo) the left has a sickness and are gullible. The arguement goes both ways buddy

    Yes, people are responsible for their own actions therefore everything that happened in the Capital building on January 6, 2020 Trump can not be held responsible for.

    If Fox tells you to pick up a gun and go start shooting it's your job to not do that not theirs with all due respect I'm pretty sure he was just trying to shoot a get-out-of-jail card

    On another note - how about the so-called kissing scene in star trek, season 3 episode 10. Seems to me that they are not kissing they are being controlled and forced to kiss. In Star Trek, Kirk didn't kiss Uhura. It was an involuntary action on both their parts. So both are victims of Battery by the Alien

    Honestly, I believe the rioters have some type of mental health issue(s). Now if a "News" broadcast says that the election was illegally stolen and that the co-conspirators (i e. The Senate) are about to ratify the vote. It almost seems like the duty of a good citizen to defend their country and Constitution. I 100% believe that Fox News should be held accountable for their part in the riot. The news media in its explicit and implicit ability to frame the issues of the day can wield significant power and have a social influence and bring about changes in policies. On January 6th this was shown to be true. The law needs to catch up to the connected society we live in today. It has to realize the impact that misinformation has . News media that deliberately spreads misinformation should be charged with crimes against society. At the very least, any "opinion piece" needs to be differentiated between actual news before and after the opinion. This has to become law.

  • Nihility Mandate

    Does the capital riot actually count as anything in the grand scheme of things? I mean literally the only people that died were the zealots. The police officer died of a stroke. And honestly the other riots around the country and surging crime rates seem to be a lot more impactful than a useless show of zealots making a fool of themselves. In addition, to inflation and all that good stuff. I mean rather than this guy being prosecuted, or maybe even in addition to, maybe the people throwing Molotovs should be actually held accountable. Or the ones like burning down entire cities. These clowns are clowns, a lot of pizazz and lights, but really quite useless.

  • HappyHippieGaymer

    Yeah fox news has openly admitted they are not a news organization. They can make up whatever they want with almost no repercussions. If im not mistaken the US had some limited regulations on networks using the name and format of news knowingly misinforming the public till the 80s. I bet you can guess when fox news was made?

  • Jake Raymond

    But then how is Trunp responsible for what he said before the riots? He told them not to rush the building but he's now the bad guy?

    • Better Yeetboi

      The issue is that he spend months ramping up his audience, convincing them that the election was stolen and that the whole thing was rigged, and on the day he told he audience they have to "fight for democracy"

    They should all be required to affirm that Trump lost the election and Joe Biden won in a free and honest election. Also, they need to recognize the futility of attacking the Capitol Building since there was nothing members of Congress or the Vice President could have done to change the election outcome without violating their oath to the Constitution. This nonsense must never happen again.

    Remember that American diplomat's son who, a few years ago, committed a hit-and-run and escaped the country with the help of his diplomat mommy. And when they were caught she hired him a lawyer who claimed that his client was not responsible for his actions due to "affluenza"? Yeah, that. Hello déjà vu, nice to see you again, I remember you... Moral of the story, you ARE responsible for your actions, unless you try to argue in court that you are not. 🤷🏽‍♀️

    The massive amount of cuckery here is depressing. A single, tremendous herd of sheep sprinting to slaughter.


    Rioting consist of entering a government building where there are armed security to keep people out that do not belong, but burning and looting of commerical and privet residents while civilians are inside is peaceful demonstration. What has this country become. Where someone can peacefully remove your life force and nothing happens but if you so much as have a difference in opinion with the government no matter what you do you are terrorist and rioting... I say if they can give out a pass for destroying communities they can surely give a pass on being waved into a government building by the armed security that is there to control access to said building. But I guess reality doesn't make for views or ratings.

    • Jason Witt
      Jason Witt

      @Better Yeetboi you mean like the capital cop that shot an unarmed woman through a door killing her? Again why did they not find any weapons on anyone at the capital of your saying they had so many.

    • Better Yeetboi
      Better Yeetboi

      @Jason Witt yes out of all of the protest across the country, only a small percentage had any property damage. And im assuming they were coming inside to harm them based off the fact they brought zip ties, hammers, and bricks and they were assembling a guillotine. And innocent people shouldn't be victimized, like you might have seen the clip of cops shoving an innocent elderly protestor to the ground.

    • Jason Witt
      Jason Witt

      @Better Yeetboi have you ever heard of a coup that didn't involve people with weapons? Or do you believe that there was weapons at the Capitol too. Even though there's never been a weapon found there? Oh you probably believe that the capital officer got killed on the 6th because he died from a seizure. Despite the fact that his family and medical provider said that it was unrelated to the capital.

    • Jason Witt
      Jason Witt

      @Better Yeetboi hahaha small percentage? Billions in damage and countless innocent people victimized. I guess you believed the reporter that told you the protests were peaceful while standing in front of a fire.

    • Better Yeetboi
      Better Yeetboi

      Because there's a difference between a small percentage of protest about racial injustice and police brutality turning violent and an armed insurrection not protesting anything moral and admirable, but trying to attempt a coup because they were upset with the results of the election.

    Fox will soon need to add a disclaimer due to all their BS. "For entertainment purposes only!" That should've been the outcome of the lawsuit against Tucker Carlson at least.

  • anondecepticon

    It may not be a defense, but can we at least acknowledge that anything purporting to be NEWS carries the expectation of adherence to the journalistic code of ethics and standards, which Fox flagrantly violates on a regular basis? E! Entertainment News has more journalistic integrity in their reporting of celebrity gossip, ffs. If the FDA can regulate what’s allowed to be labeled “ice cream” to prevent unscrupulous manufacturers from misleading consumers, surely we can have a federal regulation governing what’s allowed to be called “news”?

    Can we just have a Stream of the first 48 hours each convicted insurrectionist spend in prison? Most people are going to get away with what, in my opinion is a true act of disrespecting this nation, our flag, our democracy, and committed vandalism, looting, and desecrating our Capitol, commiting murder, mayhem and acts of violence while threatening bodily harm to elected officials along with the murder and violence against the police. But, but all means, lose your shit if a citizen takes a knee in silent, non violent protest against inequality when the National Anthem plays to a nation that still doesn't treat everyone equal. Yes, I'd pay to see the first 48 hours each of these insurrectionists spend in prison, where their hero won't spend half a second to think about them or what he incited them to do.

    I have a genuine question, why are we only focusing on finding and prosecuting those at the January 6th riot, what about the BLM riots over the summer that caused over $6,000,000,000 in damages, and left hundreds dead? What about prosecuting those who set up the "Capital Hill Autonomous Zone" where multiple people ended up dieing because emergency services couldn't get in?
