Fox News is the worst at everything
If you want a good example of journalistic “slant”, I urge you to watch this video carefully. The story itself is quite shocking; a judge who received kickbacks for sending juveniles to private correction facility has all his convictions thrown out. So over 6500 kids are now free from this nightmare.
Since this video is on Fox News, what is the likeliest angle to approach this story? Will she be shocked that the privatization of the correctional system has incentivised convictions? Is she at all concerned for the families of the children who fought to have their kids back from these institutions? What about the sheer number of convictions alone (was she not curious as to why the number was so high in the first place)? Nope. The news anchor’s first question is to ask how many of them would be retried, since they were “probably” guilty.
When the gravity and depravity of the situation is finally made clear to her, it’s almost painful to watch her squirm as she admits moral defeat. I don’t fucking care what your political leaning is: when you have a story about kids’ lives being destroyed in order for a bunch of rich corrupt judges (who have asked for immunity) to make money, you report on that fucking crime. Period.
