The Fox News program was on while I was at the gym.

I never watch it. I glanced up at it a few times, and my immediate reaction was how simple and childish it appeared.

There was no volume, so I was only seeing the bright colors, flashing lights and silly headlines—headlines that read like Trump Tweets.
How can anyone watch that program, and take it as a serious source of news?—it is so obviously right-wing banter.
Silly viewers: Fox is for kids.

2. Fox is like Nigerian prince scam letters

These are deliberately full of spelling errors and ludicrous wordings because they only want those who are incapable of seeing the scam for what it is. The people who are hooked by such letters are much easier to con. Likewise with Fox - they only want viewers who cannot discern how infantile and tantrum-ish the channel is, because they will be easier to con.

3. Unfortunately,

there are way too many of those people. Blonde bimbos with skirts hiked up to their thighs, and sweaters low cut is all it takes to attract the low info crowd. People such as tRump are big fans of Faux. Anyone with an active brain wants REAL news, not fluff.

4. Yep

We were having breakfast at the hotel before hitting the road for the next gig. Of course Faux News was on. My idiot guitar player nudged me and pointed to the tv. "That's why I watch FOX" he said, meaning the attractive women on the show. I looked up at the tv and back at him and his stupid grin and replied, "yes but you're an idiot. People like you will swallow all the propaganda in the world if you dress it up in flag graphics and mini skirts." The grin slid off his face and he sputtered, "I'm.. I'm kidding!" "I don't think you are," I replied. "And even if you did mean it, what I said is true about those you're politically aligned with. Damn. These are good eggs!" I still hate that asshole.

5. Cable companies have figured them out.

You have to pay for an upgrade if you want to watch both FOX and Spongebob.
