FOX News really deserves the proper label of FAUX News. A quick scan of their headlines show a clear intent to inflame sentiment and push perspectives in a specific direction.

The latest scandal being “reported” by FOX News is that Vice President Kamala Harris bought some cookware while in Paris. This is a simple act where the VP spent her own cash on some cookware while in Paris.

But the take from FOX News:

Vice President Kamala Harris spent over $500 on cookware in a Parisian shop amid rising inflation and economic uncertainty at home in the U.S.

The vice president visited the shop on her four-day diplomatic trip to Paris last week, reportedly dropping 516 euros on pots and pans at high-end cookware store E. Dehillerin.

The store is located outside of the world-famous Louvre museum, where the famous painting by Leonardo da Vinci, the Mona Lisa, hangs.

See how they did that? Add some irrelevant commentary and this simple act now becomes a “scandal” for the channel’s consumers to revel in.

All it takes is adding some unneeded commentary that has nothing to do with the fact itself and the facts get a twist and a spin and a whole new trajectory.

FOX News really deserves the proper label of FAUX News. A quick scan of their headlines show a clear intent to inflame sentiment and push perspectives in a specific direction. This is not the reporting of facts. It is the alteration of facts to make them appear different than they are.

What FOX is doing is the pre-intepretation of facts. This means that instead of readers being presented with data they can digest and assign importance or unimportance to, FAUX News is telling readers how to view things by how they are presented.

So, there is no news here. Only faked up news intended to look worse than it is. It is supposed to create outrage and anger.

And that is propaganda.
