Rant of the Week: How Could Fox News Be SO Mean to Trump? (Unfair!)

By Published on .

So you've probably seen the news that a San Francisco billionaire named Tom Steyer has launched something called "Need to Impeach."

He says he plans to spend ten million dollars running commercials to rally people to sign a petition to impeach Donald Trump, who he says has, quote, "brought us to the brink of nuclear war, obstructed justice, and taken money from foreign governments," end quote.

Among the outlets that ran the ad: Fox News.

Fox News, of course, seems to have a different opinion about Trump—namely, that he should be praised relentlessly and perhaps even coronated—but, hey, ten mil is ten mil, and Fox wanted its fair share. Besides, in politics, attack ads are practically the dial tone. What's one more angry commercial?

But then something strange happened. Just watch.
