I didn't know FOX News was for sale.

If it is, Trump would probably beat Bloomberg to the punch.

Does Trump have real money to pay for Fox News?

If Bloomberg really wants to upset Trump he need only buy Fox & Friends.

I'm sort of afraid of what monster would be formed if righties lost their beloved propaganda network...

Fox is fighting for relevance against OANN in the race to the bottom

Turn Fox into an entire satire network of right wing news, all Colbert report type stuff and ridiculous headlines and stories about "Real Murka". Pretend it's real right wing news, like how Fox used to pretend they were real news.

Remember when we had the Fairness Doctrine and our news media was more truth based? Remember when billionaires couldn't openly buy politicians. Something went very wrong in America and my bet is that it happened in the Supreme Court. We need to fix it.
My slogan from now on is "one billionaire, one vote."

Trump enjoys hating on immigrants but he's on speed dial with the immigrant arch-traitor Murdoch who has promoted a twisted way of thinking which has damaged American culture. We will need a French-style Academy to help redefine ourselves as a country and elucidate ways to get our heads back on straight. American Studies programs should be reemphasized and history majors respected again along with the other humanities in a rebirth of high culture which would result if we could get rid of Donald and Rupert's miasma of negativism. As for Bloomberg, he would probably do what he could to drive down the price for quite a while.

In order to bring america back from the precipice of destruction, someone does need to buy fox news.

Rupert murdoch is having similar decivilizing effects in every country he runs the media in.

Trump will go away, but trumpism is fed by fox, and as long as fox exists, we'll just keep getting worse and worse republicans, catering to a dumber and angrier base.

What does that have to do with the article? Did she make it up?

Do you not agree that fox has had a terrible effect on this country? (By this country I mean america, not russia or wherever you are)

It already has become that. And its viewers still think it's the only source of real truth.
