To what extent should the freedom to lie, and to undermine society, be protected? I think in the case of Fox News and its even crazier cousins to the right (OAN, etc.) the Paradox of Tolerance may be kicking in.
The problem is, of course, this overlaps enough with the interests of capitalists that nothing will be done and it will proceed to its logical conclusion.
That’s miles and miles in the rear-view. That ship has sailed. Not content to shred every line item in the Bill of Rights except of course the Holy 2nd, on the last possible day of their term they gutted the EPA. Just a final lagniappe for their corporate, fascist masters.

Yeah… so that happened. Tone deaf doesn’t even scratch the surface of this. This is what the Democrats in Congress do while a secular, diverse political order is nuked to make way for a Christo-fascist regime. Fuck these people. Never getting another vote or campaign dollar from me.
