Brandon Root's article you posted he is just expressing his opinion. He an entertainer also. He wants ratings.
You're gonna take someone serious with an opening statement like this?
"Unless you're a bit brain-damaged, it shouldn't come as too much of a shock that Fox News occasionally plays fast and loose with the truth. Occasionally they will distort, creatively edit, or even fabricate evidence to support their narrative. But don't worry, you're not the only one screaming at your television."
If Fox can get you to be "screaming at your television" they are doing there jobs. You are watching there broadcasts and are helping give them good ratings. They are moving you to the point to be screaming at your television.
Some movies can't even do that. You got to be "brain-damaged" to continually watch a TV show over and over again that you don't like, or more to the point, that is not entertaining you. The fact is they are being entertained or they wouldn't be watching it.
