Now conservative columnist David Frum, speechwriter for President George W. Bush, calls out Fox News and talk radio for creating what he characterizes as an "alternative knowledge system" and says they "immerse their audience in a total environment of pseudo-facts and pretend information." No kidding?
In point of fact Fox News panders to a conservative audience, delivering 24/7 propaganda tailored to their target opinion demographic. How we got to this point is discussed in Panderbear's post, Polarized Opinion. The Fox News Network is a highly profitable enterprise, but its product isn't news.
