We all know Fox News takes liberties with the true. The ultra Right-leaning network is a bastion of anti-Obama rhetoric and a haven to many Tea Partiers who think their country is under attack. But can it kill you?
According to Tracy Knauss, Fox News, and its repeated lies and slanted rhetoric, is responsible for her mother’s death.
Knauss explained on Facebook:
FOX NEWS KILLED MY MOTHER — For about 20% of Americans, many of them older and/or uneducated, Fox News is the main source of information. But rest assured Fox is not about news any more than it’s fair and balanced. FOX is the main propaganda arm for the Republican Party and America’s plutocrats. It is THE worst of the corporate owned media. FOX’s founder, Roger Ailes, was the top media consultant to the last four Republican presidents. No way was he going to create a fair or balanced news media. FOX News is killing America one lie at a time, one life at a time. I know this personally.
FOX News killed my precious mother, Hallie. She watched FOX religiously. And when she fell ten days before she died, she refused to go to the doctor because, “I don’t want Obamacare to get all of my information! she declared, recalling the warnings from FOX News “anchors.” She was emphatic. She was not going to consort with the muslim enemy. As she made out her will she told her lawyer, “I don’t want any of my money going to the Muslim Brotherhood!” And her last protestation dealt with “Obama’s death panels.” Mother died just days later. I hold FOX News responsible for my mother’s death.
While most of us easily brush off Fox News and other extremely biased outlets as just propaganda, apparently others are taking it to heart and to disastrous results.
What do you think? Is Fox News partially responsible for this woman’s death?
