Faux “News” is NOT a “real” news organization — it is a political POOPaganda machine CREATED BY REPUBLICAN OPERATIVES AS A MEDIA OUTLET FOR REPUBLICAN SPIN. It is FALSE ADVERTISING and FRAUD to be marketed as news when it was created for the stated, explicit purpose of being a media outlet to represent the views of the Republican party.
In a 15-page memo from 1970, that had been in storage at the Nixon Presidential Library in Yorba Linda and only released years later, it was revealed that Roger Ailes started planning “Faux Noise” while working for Nixon, though it was not practical in an age before cable made it feasible to establish entirely new media outlets. As a top Republican party strategist, Ailes engineered the election of Nixon, and later Reagan and George H.W. Bush before officially leaving his Republican party political role and establishing Faux “News” with the stated intent, expressed in his 1970 memo, of creating a Republican POOP-aganda machine disguised as a news outlet which occurred by the 1990’s.
There has never ever been a similar instance where a former top political strategist of a political party was the head of a television news department. (ABC had Diane Sawyer [a deputy press secretary for Nixon] and George Stephanopoulos [media spokesperson for Clinton], but neither was actual head of the news department, and the two — Republican and Democrat — balanced each other out.)
