The invention of Fox News coincides with the invention of a political world in which ignorance and hate have assumed the key aspects of dialogue. From Fox News has come a public affirmation of hatred toward people whose skins are darker, of people who happen to come from an Hispanic background. And, of course “political commentators” who believe their task is to denigrate people rather than discussing issues and policies. Fox News host Brit Hume offered an analysis of the performance of Hillary Clinton on Monday night.
“She looked, I think, for the most part, she looked composed, smug sometimes not necessarily attractive. Well, I was commentating on the candidates demeanor which is what you evaluated as a political journalist when you’re watching a debate.”
How about: “Donald Trump was sort of over weight, he waved his arms in all directions, and he certainly would not be described as handsome.”
