A new tweet from Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA) condenses the California legislator’s take on the Fox News scandal over its coverage of the 2020 election and what were ultimately conclusively proven to be lies about widespread fraud.
The former member of the House’s January 6 Select Committee has been heating up the Twitter feed with his politically sharp tweets. Schiff’s latest missive summarizes the Fox Corporation’s entire ugly affair in just one ominous post.
He has been posting about the overturning of Roe v. Wade, the January 6 attempted coup, Walgreens cutting back on its offerings of abortions by medication, and how Fox host Tucker Carlson’s election propaganda connected, as his own texts appeared to directly indicate, to an interest in supporting the company’s stock prices, thereby displaying character weakness. Schiff is running for the Senate seat held by California Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) now that the former San Francisco mayor has decided against seeking another term.
The Senate candidate’s new message condemns the Fox network, because Rupert Murdoch’s company:
- Fired truth-telling employees,
- Promoted election fraud in spite of knowing otherwise,
- Only appreciated increasing the bottom line,
- Surprised no one.
‘Key takeaways from the Fox News scandal: They fired people for telling the truth. Hosts like Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity pushed election fraud claims they privately knew were absurd. For Murdoch only the money mattered. And the biggest scandal: No one is surprised’
Schiff said precisely what he means about “weak men:”
‘Weak men peddle false election lies while privately dismissing them as absurd. Weak men use fear and hate to motivate their followers. Weak men value money and notoriety over truth and decency. Tucker Carlson is a weak, weak man.’
No “surprise” there.
