It’s the “secret sauce” of Fox News: “tell people who feel socially inferior that you’re really the smart one. You’re really informed, you know the real secrets about what’s really going on,” explains Rick Wilson on the latest episode of The New Abnormal.
For 20 years, Fox has been force-feeding this sauce to its listeners, saying “that your life would be perfect if it wasn’t for that George Soros, your life would be perfect if it wasn’t for ANTIFA. They prep these people’s minds to reject empirical truth all the time.”
And finally, you have them believing in lizard people. In satanic pedophile rings. In QAnon. But maybe, Molly Jong-Fast offers, the QAnon takeover of the Republican party isn’t so bad.
