How Fox News is hurting our country - Chris Cillizza

Joylandi 28-Yan, 2020
Fox News is by far the outlet that most Republicans trust for their news, according to new data from the Pew Research Center. But is that trust misplaced? From completely ignoring impeachment to consistently providing uncritical and even glowing coverage of President Donald Trump by hosts like Sean Hannity, Chris Cillizza explains how this lopsided information-gathering system is hurting American politics.

  • Hey, Chris here -- have you been watching the Senate impeachment trial?

    • CNN is a Commie Anti American Looney leftist POS network and one day in the near future us real Patriots are going to Tar and Feather your nasty A_ _ E S then run you people the HELL out of our Country and the sooner the better for every God fearing American Patriot!!! Just Wait and 👀

    • If you think CNN and especially Chris Cillizza were wild before,just wait. You're a nincompoop, Cillizza!😂.

    • @Zeke Lugo Santini "Demoncrats," you say. Those taking a stand against a lawless, sociopathic demagogue and dictator who openly welcomes and invites foreign interference in our elections, who has publicly stated that dirt offered to him by a foreign government "isn't an interference," and who we know attempted to coerce the government of Ukraine into announcing a sham investigation into the Bidens in order to help his 2020 campaign by once again smearing his most formidable opponent in an election with false accusations of corruption, you call demons. You stupid fuck. I pity you.

    • @Eric Wood Demoncrats lost the trial; and Trump has been acquitted! You can now go back to your parents basement and sulk!

    • @boston mass LMAO scares there viewers? With what? That there is no evidence? I seriously can't believe people still fall for propaganda these days seriously how stupid do you have to be to believe the clown news network lol wow

  • Dickhead lol

  • CNN is full of shit... Fox and Trump keep exposing your ass and your ratings are on the toilet... Re-runs of Full Hose get better ratings than your best most watched nightly news show...GFY.

  • CNN and MSNBC cannot tell any truth. Why would anyone listen to or watch that garbage? Remember, Bagdhad Bob? Not a single truth came out of his mouth. The Americans had conquered Iraq, and he was declaring victory for Saddam. Remember all the impeachment trash CNN and MSNBC foisted on the American people? Not a single word was true. Will they back off and admit they both intentionally and unintentionally spoke mistruth after mistruth? Not a chance. For them, the end justifies the means. They can lie, cheat and steal and as long as the US is changed into a Totalitarian Regime, they feel their obfuscation is justified. But of course, being the fools, they will be the first ones jailed once the totalitarian they promote takes over and determines that they are no longer needed.

  • Your ultimate biased view can't be seen by anyone, but 😄 the Washington Post???

  • And how many people trust your lying and bs polls?

  • BIGEST LIE IN THE WHOLE HISTORY OF AMERICA!@! 12 MILLION OUT OF HRC & DNC'S TREASURE CHEST!?? OUR AMERICAN MONEY USED AS A WEAPON!@! 35 TO 45 MILLION IN THE MUELLER REPORT ! 3,1/2 YEARS LATER : (EXPERTS SAY) 20 & UP TO: 50 BILLION IN US DOLLARS IN THE ""NEGATIVE"" YEP! WE KNOW ONE THING, 'THAT IS FOR SURE' THEY DID THEIR ""DAMNDEST"" TO REMOVE THE BEST PRESIDENT IN OUR HISTORY!@! IN 7 FAILED COUP ATTACKS!@! DRAIN THE SWAMP!@! SO WHO WOULD YOU INVEST YOUR MONEY INTO? THE ""GLOBALIST'S n WORLD BANKS"" WHO HATE MAGA 1 NOW MAGA 2 FOR TUESDAY! NOVEMBER 3.2020! WHY PLAY ""PATSIE WITH BAD DEALS""!@! Unless You Talked To Joe Biden&son! (?) They Did Dam Good!

  • CNN = Clinton News Network. CNN is full of liars. They wouldn't know the truth even if it slapped them in the face!

  • The power of Fox News.....My brother, who has been a life long 'Labourite' (hard out, far left democrat) over the past 3 years has become a serious 'Trumpist'....he's been caught 'hook, line and sinker'. He only watches Fox news and now becomes extremely angry and [very] vocal if anyone speaks negatively of Trump. He has also lost any of his ability to be open minded toward anyone except Trumpist's and has become downright bigoted....This is the first time I have seen 'hate' in his eyes.........so......to the power of Fox News...we live in New Zealand!

  • cnn really sucks

  • Haha trump supporters hate nh how'd you like getting fucked with and smacked up Haha and right to the cops you run ahhhhhh ha hahaha stay out of nh we don't fuckin like you you'll get fucked with every single time

  • Keep talking trump that wall never gonna get done. And we know Mexico ain't paying right cuz the president over there told you to get bent on TV

  • Talking about trump and fox your the biggest fake ass news in the country

  • Nazi fuck

  • Every word comes out that fat fucks mouth is a lie

  • Narcism at it's best haha

  • You guys jelly

  • Hey Chris your a liar. Please stop it. You look and sound foolish. I doupt the truth can help you now. Once a liar always a liar. Fox and One News Network are the honest networks. Their ratings prove that.

  • All MSM is GARBAGE. The one lies and the other swears by it.

  • CNN is absolutely insane...

  • Go to hell FAKE NEWS

  • Trashy

  • Michael Bloomberg just purchase Fox 🦊 News and then Fire the entire Staff. Better Yet. Insist they all pledge to become Never Trumpers or Pack their shit. OANN, Newsmaxx would love to have them.

  • Trump hurt farmers with his tariffs and now is going to subsidize them with taxpayer $$ while falsely claiming that China is paying

  • 100% opposite.

  • Intelligent insight , into a complex situation .Unfortunately some people have attention spans of gold fish

  • Other examples of US trying to cover or distract are the glue and other diseases blamed on Mexico. Funny that one person that was interviewed and then said he was paid to do so is the mayor in a town in Jalisco

  • I cannot find a video where CNN makes Fox eats crow like Fox has on CNN that a fact

  • Micheal Avenatti yeah right

  • What’s hurting our country is news media hiding the truths, tell the people how Dems have allowed Bloomberg in because of his deal with pelosi and how the dnc is doing what it can to get Bernie sanders out, tell the people how corrupt the Dems r and how they will do anything to fuck over anyone who gets in the way of the agenda they want and not what the people want! Tell That story of century! The media, pelosi, schiff aoc n gang r ruining our values only to get what THEY WANT! And u refuse to report that! You won’t report anything but Trump so u can throw people off the real corruption that’s going on. You won’t report how corrupt the fbi is because the agenda of the pelosi schiff n gang is what matters, people will eventually see thru this n the fake news n corruption will end u n them! So we the people can choose Trump isn’t the problem/Russia its the Democrats who r corrupt hiding truths from people Dems n Rep!

  • Chris, sorry but Soros is not sending you a check no matter how much ass you kiss!

  • CNN. Because we source from twitter.

  • "...but that success comes at a price, and its a big one, and one that we will continue to pay for years and years to come." like the price of the strongest economy in 23 years, the (finally!) confrontation of America's 21st existential threat (China), and the general enthusiasm and energy starting to run through all sectors of American society again after years of the dead weight of left conformism. Oh yeh, Fox may be one network, but 80% of the MSM with the deadhead groupthink parrots who front it and their deadhead producers constitute one extended network themselves, no matter that they might be owned and traded by different shareholders.

  • I think you have it backward , fox news reports the real news not demorats scripted news the rest do.

  • This guy has got to be kidding. Does he really believe what he is saying?

  • Hey Where’s Fredo

  • This was thought-provoking so regardless of my views, I appreciate this content.

  • traitor

  • Trust no media , look at results, he has many!! Trump 2020 clown

  • CNN Fake news

  • U where bullied all your life

  • Stfu clown , he has 1 media outlet, you guys including u are liers and we have social media fuck your media

  • #trump2020 #foxnews CNN is counterfeit news network

  • Our country? What country? China? Fake news trash

  • Chris Cillizza is an American political commentator for television, of whom I have watched and admired from a far, however, thoughts are one thing, appearance is another, when coupled together produces an altogether different animal, when its demonstrated that a lot of hair dyeing is involved any opinions expressed suddenly becomes tainted with marketing and loses much of its luster, with questions like if they ever had any luster or truth in their presentation in the first place.

  • 3k likes vs 6k dislikes. On the official cnn youtube channel. CNN is garbage and everybody knows it.

  • Great commentary on this critical issue - if we are ever going to be more united, right leaning voters need to find some other news sources. I suggest respected media from allied democracies, such as BBC and CBC. They have no skin in the US game, so their fact reporting is going to be accurate. Ignore all opinion bits, learn the facts, and decide for yourself

  • there is no trusted media source including you

  • CNN is causing the divide in this country. I'm someone. Who was not into politics at all. So basically an outsider looking In. Everything CNN does is completely against the president of the United States. This the first time this is ever happened. All they do is slander and make fun of him every day. It's ridiculous. If they just came together we can make this country a lot better.

  • How CNN been hurt because they are fake news journalists. LMAO! The Cass pool of media.

  • I listened to this video and wasted nearly six minutes of my life. The reason we are so polarized in politics, I believe, is the media. The media has an agenda, and often times that agenda is "democrat". It is pretty biased and shameful!!! You have CNN which spins one spectrum of "its" truth, and you have Fox that spins the other end of the truth spectrum. The TRUTH is somewhere in the middle. Both CNN and Fox are guilty of a biased agenda, and the media has gravitated away from presenting both sides, fairly. In the past, those sides were represented on mainstream cbs, nbc, abc networks. But years ago that all changed. You need fox news these days to counteract that tendency towards democrat slanted propaganda, versus real and fair news. That is why most independent and republican voters gravitate towards one network. If you are a republican candidate, president, or congressmen, you will never receive a fair assessment any where else.

  • If you're trying to tell everybody that the president hasn't done one good thing after 3 yrs. As CNN and the dems go ahead you're just proving his point about there being a swamp. People are not dumb.

  • Lol, you liberal morons! Obviously you would be better off turning the comments off, lol. You have twice as many dislikes as you have likes. That’s how the 2020 Trump re-election will turn out also. 100% more for Trump. Fake news... lairs

  • And it’s all anti-Trump. The Democrats don’t talk about any of the issues before the American people, they just don’t like Donald Trump and they bash him. Whether you like them or not he’s done a great job for the country. It’s people going to get off the Kool-Aid and wake up

  • Just go back and look at the statistics that you showed in regard to Fox’s viewership, then compare it to everybody else. You’ll find that CNN and all the rest of them a part of operation mockingbird. They all have the same talking points in same language and

  • Hey Chris, you look very stupid, the same every Dem member. All Dem members have tofu heads! That is why all times they use to impeach President Trump and do not thing for American and Country. Shame on you!

  • I wonder if CNN saw that in one of their polls 55% of Fox News media coverage on Trump was negative lol.

  • Chris Cillizza you use the words facts often. Name one BS story by fox. Insult 60 mil Americans good job. Every Rep knows Trump would make good sales man. Americans choose him to do a job. you are just joke, PLEASE one exmample of fake news from fox

  • Only stupid view FOX! Trump: Unstable Non Genius Narcissist!
