Brian Stelter: Fox News and Trump Want Their Viewers To Stay Mad and Stay Tuned

‘Fox News, the beating red heart of the right-wing media machine, molds reality into a serialized drama’

RUSH EXCERPT:

STELTER: “Fox News, the beating red heart of the right-wing media machine, molds reality into a serialized drama. Think “Lost” for “24,” gold medals or “Breaking bad.” West world or the wire. Developments in this entertainment drama, new twists to keep you watching. Fox and Trump have this in common. They want you to stay mad and stay tuned. So this political entertainment careens from conspiracy to conspiracy, like a serialized TV drama.”
