Why is Fox News Propagandist-in-Chief for ISIL/Daesh Atrocities?

John Iadarola, Jimmy Dore, and Desi Doyen | The Young Turks | –

“Fox News has chosen to embed on its website the video of Islamic State burning a hostage to death, a move which makes them the only US media organisation to broadcast the video in full.

The extremely graphic 22-minute video shows Muadh al-Kasasbeh, a Jordanian pilot, being set on fire and burned to death in a cage. Fox News did not post the videos of the killings of previous Isis hostages, and no other media company has hosted this video.

In a statement, the network said: “After careful consideration, we decided that giving readers of FoxNews.com the option to see for themselves the barbarity of ISIS outweighed legitimate concerns about the graphic nature of the video. Online users can choose to view or not view this disturbing content.”

On Twitter, accounts associated with Isis supporters are sharing the video via the links to the Fox News site.”* John Iadarola (Think Tank), Jimmy Dore (The Jimmy Dore Show) and Desi Doyen (The Green News Report) break it down.”

    I for one appreciate it when you pose an easy question. Here, it’s because they don’t have to make things up to rouse their rabble.

  2. Extremists need at least the illusion of opposing extremists to justify their ruthless agendas. What would Hitler and Stalin have done without each other?

  3. They’d be the first ones to broadcast a public execution. The option for their followers to see for themselves, you know, because they have no minds with which to imagine…or to do anything else.

  4. While I am no fan of FNC, I also believe that more Americans need to actually see these videos. Hearing that ISIS has beheaded an American aid worker arouses the normal revulsion, contempt etc., but the emotion quickly fades as people go about their days, their attention reverting back to Dancing with the Stars and Biggest Loser. Watch the videos and you’ll be writing your congressman asking him what the hell he plans to do to ensure that these animals die die swift deaths.
