Fox News was launched in 1996 to provide news to conservatives.  That seems a benign enough goal.  However, in the last 4-5 years, they've moved from leaning conservative to promoting hate for those they deem other. 

On-air personalities engage in language that is extremely polarizing. Groups of people (e.g.immigrants) & specific people (e.g. Congress members) are targeted for harm by audience members. 

These personalities ignore facts at OUR peril. Their audience believes what they say. News should be news & opinion should be CLEARLY labeled opinion. But further than that, these hosts push disinformation, some of it sourced in Russia (e.g.Seth Rich).  

GOP discourse in Congress has been reduced to shouting these conspiracy theories at witnesses.  

This polarization has led to a dangerous environment.  The US AG  lied about the Mueller Report.  Fox repeated & heedlessly expanded this lie. As a result, many Americans believe that Donald Trump was vindicated.  He was not.

And here we are, long past the stage of constitutional crisis.  We are in danger of becoming a fascist state with a leader who is unfit to do so.

Let's ask FOX to find a business model that allows for conservative viewpoint without polarization and more carefully adheres to the spirit of the FCC guidelines.
