Why does FOX have to defend Tucker Carlson by making the following statement, under oath, in court?

"You Literally Can't Believe The Facts Tucker Carlson Tells You. So Say Fox's Lawyers"

https://www.npr.org/2020/09/29/917747123/you-liter...

"Fox's lawyers: The "'general tenor' of the show should then inform a viewer that [Carlson] is not 'stating actual facts' about the topics he discusses and is instead engaging in 'exaggeration' and 'non-literal commentary.' "

    Once upon a time there was no one willing to criticize American foreign policy! All those wars that destroyed countless countries on some sham provocation! Since 2001.

    To unleash the neocons project for the new American century! After all look at what happened to Donahue when he criticized the fake patriotism! Wars are about profiteering! Democrats lapped up wars just as much as the neocons, queen 👑Hilary Clinton sacrificed her voting base to woo the hawks to get herself elected! She took for granted her voter base wouldn't ditch the warmongering self enriching queen!However as the consequences have left America in deep do-do debt, and hated for its actions, Carlson has debunked that foreign policy!The damage further inflected by the warmongering Obama regime, aided and abetted by queen Clinton and Victoria Nuland have finally been outed!

    And the disclosures are UGLY.

    Hence the network doesn't want to get dragged into the law courts! 

    After all in the past it aided and abetted Bush jr! 

    The politicians have been enriching themselves UNFETTERED! Always above the law!

    Chickens had to come home to roost some day!

    Carlson and his ilk are their to put on a reality tv show, not actual news. They are in the category of opinion pieces,. Yes his comments are racist and much of what he has said is not true or is twisted in some right wing way. Should he be held liable for his words, maybe?  And so should Fox if they are taken to court. People that watch these opinion type shows do not seperate the fiction from actual news, Fox news knows this fact, and they use a number of ethically questionable marketing techniques to manipulate their audience. You should read about it, all sorts of phycological tricks to deceive are used. This is why the Fox News audience consistently has polled as the most misinformed of all the major cable and network news audiences. I think Murdoch has done more to hurt America than any other country since WWII. Fox news is the biggest reason we have this huge division in the country. The rich want it that way.

    That is the truth exactly, however, it still allows people to believe in the truth.

    It's the same script for the CNN and MSNBC "commentators".  Anyone who believes this is actual unbiased reporting of the news is painfully naive.  Can we take a moment to appreciate the smug and condescending Don Lemon for his inability to get over Carlson's mispronunciation of 'Kamala"?  As if there aren't more important things to worry about.  But then were are shown a video of Kamala in Cleveland where she also mispronounces here own name.  At least according to The Don.  When Carlson does this it's sexist and racist.  What do we call it when Kamala does it?

    Tucker takes any news and runs with it.  This is what papers are suppose to do.  Then we figure out the right or wrong of it, but news should not be suppressed as did Twitter, CNN, ABC, NBC, MSNBC etc.  Tucker and Hannity are my news source because tough stories don't bother them.  They can be trusted. Judge Jeanine is tough and unafraid of anything she says.  That is why I like President Trump and FOX News, they tell it like it is.  Have you really listened to Biden and Trump?  Entirely different speakers.  Biden is all political propaganda and hate on Trump and Trump is hate on Biden, but love the people.

    Carlson show is political commentary.. Not news.. He can focus on things that support his views to get a point across.. The only reason it's a big deal to liberals is he is ripping them to pieces..

    Fox is an entertainment network, nothing you see there is true.

    You get what you pay for. "News" is to make shareholders mo' money. Thank Republicans for allowing these mega-news outlets with an emphasis on entertainment.
