    Default PBS NewsHour Began Summarizing Mueller Report Last Night. What Did Fox News Do?

    Robert Mueller said America needs to read the report. But the Report is over 400 pages of some very dry reading. Most Americans will never read that, (since most Americans don't read very much or if they do they read fiction) so last night, PBS NewsHour began summarizing the report for us.

    I have to wonder if Fox News did the same thing. Naturally, I can only watch one news show at a time, so I didn't watch Fox News. Is there someone here who watches Fox News and can tell us if they ran a similar summarizing wrap-up of what is in the Mueller Report? (I would be surprised.)

    PBS is going to run a series of pieces each night this week summarizing different sections of the Mueller Report. Will Fox News say anything at all about it? Or will they ignore Robert Mueller and pretend it is old news - no longer pertinent. (as expected, since Fox News is so right-biased.)

    PBS said the first section of the Mueller Report covers the Russian interference with the 2016 election. The Russians definitely influenced our election and they did their best to get Trump elected. This influence was done in two ways. They ran a very extensive social media campaign in which they spread rumors and false stories, posed as Americans, and even became involved in setting up Trump rallies, coordinated with Trump campaign workers. It is not clear if the Trump campaign workers that the Russians communicated with knew that they were talking to Russians.

    PoliTalker anti-troll thread thief disclaimer: If this thread is stolen, plagiarized, will the thief have the nerve to use the entire OP, word for word? Including this disclaimer? If you want my take on it, you'll have to post to this original PoliTalker thread. I refuse to be an enabler for online bullies, so I won't post to a stolen thread. I won't even read it. If you don't see me, PoliTalker, posting in this thread check the author. This might be a hijacked thread, not the original.

    The second way they tried to get Trump elected was by using cyber attacks on computer systems and voting machines. It is not clear if they altered any actual vote tallies. This question is still being investigated, and that's why much of this section of the Mueller Report is redacted. PBS NewsHour said this first section of the Muller report contains the most redactions of the entire report because many of these investigations into the vote tampering attempts are still ongoing and the question of whether the Russians actually changed any vote results for any precincts is still unknown.

    This doesn't sound to me like anything that Fox News would report, but I didn't watch Fox News last night, so I wonder if someone who did can tell us if they covered this important area of reporting....

    Anybody?

    The Mullet report said was formally summarized by both Barr and Rosenstein.

    The Mueller Report was 445 pages. It cannot be properly summarized in 4 words. The Mueller Report strongly implies that Russia got Trump elected.

    Sadly, the majority of them would not even be that nice. If one says anything which is not blindly supportive of President Trump, they frequently turn quite ugly. But not all Trump fans are that way. I am hoping for a Fox viewer who can tell us if Fox covered this important story of if they are blowing it off as expected.

    But I'm not counting on it.

    At some point we are just going to have to assume that Fox will follow President Trump's lead: deny, deflect, attack.

    That is completely wrong. That is why Fox is not news.

    News Flash: 'Fox News' ... is a Propaganda Outlet for the Conservative Right. (it's surprising you don't know that by now)

    What AG? Oh the one that cares so much about the law and truth that he refused a court order? The one telling the admin that they can ignore subpoenas? That the one? The guy who lied about what the Mueller report said?

    I didn't ask what was in the Mueller Report, nor did I ask for a 4 word slanted interpretation. I asked if Fox News is summarizing it in response to Robert Mueller's public statement that America needs to read the report, the way PBS NewsHour is doing.

    If no Fox viewer comes in here and says: "Why yes, they ran their own piece detailing what the Mueller Report says," then at some point we'll have to assume Fox is blowing it off.

    Abortion rights dogma can obscure human reason and harden the human heart so much that the same person who feels empathy for animal suffering can lack compassion for unborn children who experience lethal violence and excruciating pain in abortion.

    Unborn animals must be protected and safe in their nesting places........humans must not.

    To abort something is to end something which has begun.
    To abort life is to end it.

    Tax payers ponied up 35 million dollars for Mullet to come to a conclusion.

    We’re not paying for maybe’s and innuendos. He’s lucky he quit before Barr could fire him. But since Mullet failed to make a conclusion [a conclusion is not an indictment so forget the DOJ regulations excuse] Barr and Rosenstein made it for him.

    No collusion, no obstruction.

    It’s over.
