Tucker Carlson of Fox News literally tells his viewers not to believe any other news outlets.

So how is this not like the Nazis?

Courtesy of The Hill:

Fox News host Tucker Carlson is being criticized for telling his viewers on Friday night that they should distrust news reports from the “big news stations.”

“If you’re looking to understand what’s actually happening in this country, always assume the opposite of whatever they’re telling you on the big news stations,” Carlson said, despite Fox News sitting on top of the cable news ratings for 197 consecutive months.

His comments led some to poke fun at his apparent contradiction and to also note the damage such comments can have on the public trust in journalism.
CNN’s Brian Stelter called the comments “sad,” while Michael Barbaro at The New York Times called them “repugnant” and “literally damaging to our democracy.”

This angered Seth MacFarlane, creator of  Family Guy, so much that he responded with this: 


The only way that Donald Trump can lie like he does, and Fox News cover for those lies, is to convince people to mistrust every news source that points out that they are in fact lies.

In other words, the bubble only works if nobody pokes holes in it with the truth. 

If Donald Trump had the power he would shut down every news agency that was not actively kissing his ass and providing cover for him. 

And Fox News would be right there telling the American people that this was perfectly fine and that Trump was only protecting them from “fake news.”

    Tucker Carlson is an opportunist blatantly seeking control over his viewers.

    And yet, barely a peep out of any elected republican. They are so terrified of Fox “News” and Donnie Dotard, that they refuse to challenge or question almost anything that Fox or Dotard say. Of course, something else to consider is that maybe these elected republicans are in support of Fox and Dotard, and want to turn the U.S. into a dictatorship.

      Party before country! They also want to hold onto their precious seats.

    Carlson is a particularly egregious piece of shit, since he portrays himself as caring about an interviewee’s opinion only to mock and belittle them at the first opportunity.

      Seth McFarlane’s reply on Twitter: “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. This is fringe shit, and it’s business like this that makes me embarrassed to work for this company.”

        Seth is working for the very thing he’s condemning. He’s part of the problem.
