Fox News SLAMMED by Fox Employees Over Pro-Trump Propaganda

The Trump Administration keeps on churning out scandals, and the news media keeps on reporting them to a horrified public.

Fox News, however, has been doubling down on its unwavering support for Trump.

Creators of some of the Fox television network’s most successful scripted shows have had enough, and are voicing their outrage.

Recently, one of Fox News’ most outlandish personalities, Tucker Carlson, told his viewers to simply believe the opposite of whatever other news sources tell them.

Carlson has voiced white supremacist conspiracy theories and other abhorrent material in the past, but this instruction crossed a line with Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane.

On Twitter, MacFarlane characterized Carlson’s segment: “In other words, don’t think critically, don’t consult multiple news sources, and in general, don’t use your brain. Just blindly obey Fox News.”

That about sums it up.

“This is fringe s–t,” MacFarlane tweeted, referring to Carlson’s clip. “And it’s business like this that makes me embarrassed to work for this company.”

He doesn’t directly work for Fox News, but … close enough.

We’ll explain in a moment.

Modern Family creator Steve Levitan chimed in.

“Let me officially join Seth MacFarlane,” Levitan tweeted. “In saying I’m disgusted to work at a company that has anything whatsoever to do with @FoxNews.”

It sounds like these sentiments had been building up for months or even years.

“This bulls–t is the opposite of what #ModernFamily stands for,” Levitan added.

He does intend to see this series through to the end, but he suggested that he might not choose to continue working with the network after that.

Time will tell.

Tucker Carlson

Paul Feig, a producer, has similar sentiments.

“I have made two films for 20th Century Fox and love the people in the movie and TV divisions,” Feig tweets.

Feig continues: “But I too cannot condone the support their news division promotes toward the immoral and abusive policies and actions taken by this current administration toward immigrant children.”

Filmaker Judd Apatow makes it clear that, while he knows that many people need to keep their jobs, he believes that those who can should choose to avoid working for Fox in any capacity.

“We all choose who to work with,” Apatow writes. “I understand why that is easier for some than others but many powerful people are powerful enough to speak up to their bosses at a moment like this.”

The whole world is watching. And so is history.

And so, by the way, are advertisers. Many of whom are reportedly growing uneasy with not only Fox News, but other Fox properties.

We know that entangled corporate holdings can be a little complicated and that the average person probably doesn’t think about them all that much.

(Aside from the occassional line of “Nestle is monopolizing vital water resources like they’re James Bond villains? Don’t they make chocolate?”)

Fox News, 20th Century Fox, and everything within the Fox Entertainment Group is owned and controlled by 21st Century Fox.

(So while MacFarlane and Levitan don’t work for Fox News, they work for the same people … and clearly, that association has gotten to them)

21st Century Fox is owned and chaired by Rupert Murdoch.

During the mid-1990s, Murdoch created Fox News. He hired Roger Ailes, a former Republican Party media consultant, to run it.

Ah, the infamous Fox News.

The self-described news network has been broadly criticized for a perceived conservative bias.

During the Presidencies of George W. Bush and Donald Trump, the network has been criticized by many as functioning as state-run television.

During the Obama administration, in contrast, the network aired segments in which various mouthpieces criticized President Obama’s choice in mustard and the color of his suit.

Now, various Trump administration scandals seem to get little to no mention on Fox News while every other network covers them.

Many blame Fox for working to warp the views that older Americans hold about the world and the country.

Tucker Carlson telling his viewers — most of whom are white, conservative, and noteably old — to simply disregard other news sources is deeply toxic, even for Fox News.

Javi Marroquin: The Best Reactions to His Big Baby News!

So hey, how are you feeling about the big news that Javi is going to be a father again?

Probably pretty weird, right?

It seems like good news, for the most part — Javi and his girlfriend, Lauren Comeau, are happy about it, at least.

But there are still a lot of questions about the whole thing, because wasn't he dating Briana DeJesus and/or trying to get back with Kailyn Lowry not too long ago?

It's a whole lot to unpack, and a lot of people have a lot of feelings about it all.

So let's just get into it, all right?

1. Baby Time!

Javi and laurens big announcement
Yeah, so Javi is having a baby with Lauren Comeau, that girl he dated long distance for a few weeks last year before getting with Briana DeJesus. They started dating again in March, and now … well, now this is happening.

2. Yep, This is Real Life

Yep this is real life
So he and Briana broke up in January, he and Lauren began dating again in March, and this is what’s happening now, less than three months later.

3. Good Question!

Good question
Kailyn responded to the news by sharing a link and asking “what is life?”, which seems fair. She did add that she already knew about the news, and that she wishes Javi and Lauren well.

4. A Word from Briana

In an official statement, Briana said something similar, telling Us Weekly “I’m happy for them. I wish them nothing but the best. I don’t wish it was my baby.” Cute, right?

5. Teen Mom Bros

Teen mom bros
Tyler Baltierra from Teen Mom OG was quick to offer a nice word — like a genuinely nice word, not the weird cattiness that Javi’s exes have been offering.

6. Aww, Taylor!

Aww taylor
Taylor McKinney, Maci’s husband, gave him a shout out as well.

Angelina Jolie: Did News That Brad Pitt is Dating Make Her COLLAPSE?!

While it’s been reported that Angelina Jolie is pissed that Brad Pitt is dating Neri Oxman, details on how she responded the news have been scarce.

Until now.

A new report describes how Angelina was so overcome with distress upon the news that she allegedly collapsed.

Star Magazine has an explosive, incredible report about how Angelina Jolie allegedly responded to the news that Brad is dating a brilliant professor.

Their source claims that Angelina “flew into such a rage that she collapsed.”

Specifically, they say that she started to respond with a more outward display of her frustration.

“She was ranting one minute.”

But there was a sudden change.

“And then the next, she just sort of crumpled.”

That certainly sounds dramatic!

The report goes on.

“Angie can’t stand anyone who’s smarter and prettier than her.”

(Fortunately, there’s no such person who matches that description)

Apparently, she finds it “galling that Brad has managed to keep his connection Neri hush-hush for months.”

The source says that Angelina has been viewing this as a race.

“Angie is very jealous and competitive, and she wanted to be the first one to start a hot new relationship.”

So, in her world, she would allegedly see this as a defeat.

“If it turns out that Brad beat her to the punch, it could be humiliating.”

The source speaks about where Brad is these days.

“Brad has been ready for a new relationship for a while now.”

This source says that his current lady love is perfect for him.

“And Neri is just the sort of woman he needs.”

Neri is a professor at the MIT Media Lab.

She leads the esteemed university’s Media Matter research group.

She is also an architect and a designer.

Many have suggested that Brad has found his “Amal Clooney” in her, because she’s smart and she challenges him and, in many ways, her career path is more impressive than his.

Some have called this report on Angelina’s response into question.

The dubious dramatics and alleged jealousy aside, Angelina actually has been linked with someone.

And we don’t mean those rumors about Angelina having a revenge-bang with Justin Theroux.

In March, Entertainment Tonight reported that Angelina was seen with an “older-looking man who is a real estate agent.”

So it’s hard to see how Brad could have won the race to find someone new.

If that’s even something that concerns Angelina.

It was, after all, Angelina who broke things off with Brad. And, lest we forget, reported him for the FBI, accusing him of child-abuse.

None of us know what happened on that plane, but there are many who once admired the notoriously handsome actor who have lost all respect for him.

And it seems that Angelina feels the same way.

Does she really care that much about what her ex is up to?

We hope not. Angelina Jolie is an accomplished actress, admired political activist, and she’s done work with the United Nations.

She is better than the petty, vindictive image that some paint of her in recent months.
