Samantha Bee Reviews Birth Of A Fox Nation
Samantha Bee devoted a segment of Full Frontal to a review of Fox News’ launched-in-November streaming service Fox Nation.
Fox Nation allows Fox News Channel viewers to “gorge on toxic slop all day, without ingesting traces of nutrients that might contradict the right wing narrative” that is found in some of the TV network’s daytime programming, hosted by the likes of Shep Smith and Bret Baier.
“Pure substance free propaganda squirted right down your slobber hole,” Bee described of the Fox Nation lineup which, she noted, stops live-streaming “around the time [FNC] switches from its semi-legit news programming to Must Race Bait TV” lineup in primetime.
Amending New York Times’ description of Fox Nation as “Netflix for conservatives,” Bee described it a Netflix for viewers who “wish its World War II documentaries weren’t so mean to the Nazis.”
“What all of their programming has in common is the Fox worldview that this is our country and those other people are trying to take it away from us,” Bee described of Fox Nation.
