Agreed!

Next up for Fox is the Smartmatic case. Mike, my understanding was that Fox Corp had between $3-4 billion in the bank before the lawsuits. And Smartmatic is asking for more....$2.6 billion. And then a former program director is suing them for harassing her, and coercing her to give false testimony in the Dominion case. Any chance that lawsuit payments could run them out of business? I guess My Pillow guy is facing lawsuits, too. He's one of their few remaining pillars of their advertising, other than Big Pharma.

I must say, I'm much more enthusiastic about the news these days than during the reign of 45 and all the grifters he brought with them. May they all go to Hell (or Guantanamo) forever! And take the Murdocks, Tucker, Hannity and the rest with them!

Loved the rebuke that MTG got on the floor of the House yesterday! Love that Ralph Yarl is already up and around! Love that the Kansas City mayor is Black, and he watched his prosecutorial staff diddle around with the Yarl case. We all know that if it was a young white man who walked up to the wrong door by mistake he wouldn't have been shot.

I see your contributor, Mark Joseph Stern, one of my favs, is getting more face time on CNN and MSNBC. I can always cheer for more of Mark's excellent discussions of our legal system, along with Elie Mystal - Elie is the quentissential Angry Black Man!

One other thing - if the Supreme Court comes down all wrong about the Mifepristone case, then we should chip in for a funeral for the Supreme Court, because they will lose all, ALL, credibility with Americans. Inserting judges into the work of medical/pharmaceutical specfialists is just crazy, and should have people thinking, what might the Far Right go after next? (We know it WON'T be Viagra, right?!) Will we see statins, or diabetic drugs, or anti-depressants end up in some courtroom? Judge Roberts may go down as the worst Chief Justice.

You know, Mike, it's kind of sad for us 'first wave' feminists that having more women in Congress has brought us the likes of MTG and lauren Boebert - the're both such a waste of space and genetics.

Even if Biden or Karine Jean-Pierre don't use the "Fox lies" mantra every chance they get, there are plenty of other Dems and pundits who will. The problem is that many of them don't get enough air time, especially on CNN or even MSNBC. Rep. Jackson from NC is using TikTok to his advantage, so he will probably be one of the Dems using social media to get the message out about the Fox propaganda channel, along with AOC and others.

A great suggestion, but sadly neither the press secretary, nor the president are very good at thinking on their feet or at messaging. The previous press secretary would have done a very good job, and should not have left her position for the big money at MSNBC.

Now that we can call a spade a spade, let's demand Faux News preface every reporting with "Brought to you by lying liars". Cannot wait for the other 6 or 7 lawsuits remaining or in the immortal words of Patsy Stone (AbFab): "Let them Die"...

It is true, but the right people won’t say it at the right times.

Fox news viewers wanted to believe Trumps big lie because they didn't want Biden to be President. They wanted Fox to help Trump stay in the White House. Fox is on their side and that's all they care about.

Trump outsmarted Fox and he made $millions on his "Stop the Steal" donation campaign with Fox news' help.

Unfortunately Michael they will do none of that as they are weak and spineless and just like playing the game. I wish that was not the case but sadly the Dems are the corporate media party and just do not like calling out the lies. It is really shameful.
