Why we must win: Fox News falls for a Monty Python bit regarding #CHAZ

3 min read

Fox News, aside from photoshopping images from video and claiming that they are authentic stills, is simply run by idiots. Being devoid of journalistic ethics seems to be a feature in a Fox News propaganda operation unaware of boogaloos.

Falling for stuff on Reddit is gravy. Apparently Fox News and the Daily Cellar(sic) believe that Seattle rapper Raz is CHAZ’s warlord version of Cinque, late of the Symbionese Liberation Army.
