Bette Dangerous Podcast Ep14 - Meat Is Murdoch - Fox’s History of Lies

It’s not just getting caught in the Big Lie - it’s the culture of lies that should damn Murdoch Inc., who - like his anchors - have blood on their hands

I realize not everyone can afford a subscription to Bette Dangerous so I am unlocking podcast versions of some of my key reports. If you can afford to subscribe, please do. Countering the evil perpetuated by fascist billionaires is not a hobby, it’s what I do. They can afford to harm people and our world, while independent investigative reporters rely on the kindness of strangers.

Please do subscribe if you can and for those who are already members, thank you as always for your Ko-Fi tips - they help me survive each month. I do believe truth has value and will keep hard-charging.

These Fox stories are personal - and I wrote today from both the head - using my training as an investigative reporter - and from the heart.

Here are excerpts from my report:

In Confessions of a Fox Blonde, I wrote about the first time I quit Fox. I wrote a punk song called ‘Meat Is Murdoch’ - a riff off the Smiths’ ‘Meat Is Murder.’

In Thank You for Not Smoking Fox and Fox Is a Shithole Country, I wrote about the Industrial Outrage Complex, and the masses of outrage junkies created by Fox News. Fox Fürhers Roger Ailes and Rupert Murdoch had addicted their audience to right-wing victimhood, which is a fascist trope.

Further evidence presented Monday by Dominion Voting Systems in its $1.6 billion defamation suit against Fox News and Fox Corp. reveal that Rupert Murdoch testified under oath that he knew Fox anchors ‘endorsed’ lies about the 2020 election fraud, and he did nothing to stop it.

This is part of the fallout from the Dominion’s court filings - but there is a far bigger story that needs to be told.

Fox has been lying to the American public for years - Fox is the real Lügenpresse.

Fox stars have blood on their hands, according to a study conducted by economists at the University of Chicago titled Misinformation During a Pandemic
