Jane Mayer: Trump ‘Needs Fox as Much as Fox Needs Him; It’s a Symbiotic Relationship’

‘Trump needs the Fox viewers’


MAYER: “Immediately after my story came out, as if to illustrate it, he tweeted yet again something about “Fox and friends.” If he’s worried he’s not showing it. He needs Fox as much as Fox needs him. It’s a symbiotic relationship. Trump needs the Fox viewers. They are his base. Both fox and Trump have the same sort of business model which is in order to keep their support in place they’ve got to enrage their viewers, enrage the base.”
