Jen Psaki, the truth-challenged former press secretary and future host at raging left-wing propaganda mill MSNBC, slammed Fox News in an appearance at South by Southwest (SXSW).
“The question I have for you then, as a former White House press secretary and now as a host on MSNBC, is should we be referring to FOX as a news network?” left-wing New York Times writer Wajahat Ali asked. “And if so, why do we give them legitimacy?”
“I don’t know,” she replied. “Probably not. We shouldn’t call them a news network.”
“Probably not?” Ali asked.
“Well, we shouldn’t,” Psaki said. “But I don’t know if that’s the most important question. I think the challenge here is all of that is insane, horrific. And everybody should think it’s crazy.”
"We shouldn’t call them a news network."
"So I understand and completely relate to Democrats who are saying we should ban [Fox News]."

“Just top of the dome,” Ali said.
“That’s top of the dome,” she added. “I mean, basically the short version of this that that very, very effective explanation is that they knew better and they lied about it to the public to keep viewers. They misled them and led to a…”
“Deliberately, voluntarily,” Ali remarked.
“Deliberately misled them,” she went on. “That is, I mean, there’s a huge lawsuit about it. But the piece here that is very difficult and tricky that I think is not getting enough attention is FOX News still has an enormous viewership. I don’t know if that’s going to change. Their business model is not getting Democrats on their air.”
It should be noted that Fox News continuously gives more time to Democrats on-air than MSNBC gives to Republicans. The interviews on Fox News are also more professional and fair.
“So I understand and completely relate to Democrats who are saying we should ban it,” she added. “We shouldn’t appear on it. They don’t care. I’m not sure they care. Why would they care? So the question is not just what do we call them?”
“Sure, we should decide that, but also what are we going to do about the fact that they still have an enormous viewership consuming a huge swath of the country, including independents and Democrats who still watch?” she said.
Sounds ominous. Fox News is the only center-right mainstream news network that still exists on some television platforms. DirecTV recently canceled Newsmax and dropped OANN. One has to wonder if Fox News will be next.
However, it would be hard to top Russell Brand’s retort to MSNBC flack John Heilemann to his face about the ludicrous hypocrisy of his network complaining about Fox News’ bias.

“I have to say that it is disingenuous to claim that the biases that are exhibited on Fox News are any different than the biases that are exhibited on MSNBC,” Brand said on “Real Time with Bill Maher.”
Russell Brand then went on a rant where he called MSNBC “propagandist nutcrackery.” Bravo to Brand for standing up to these shills.
