Last Sunday ten-year Fox News Veteran, Eric Burns, told CNN that his old network and their devout followers are like a cult.
Burns was the host of the media critic show, Fox News Watch, for a decade.
He told CNN’s Brian Stelter:
“I think the way to understand this is to make a distinction between culture and cult. I’m saying that the people who watch Fox News are cult-ish. Because for many years, conservatives have been extremely upset in this country because the only newscast that they had to watch were liberal, you people at CNN and how liberal you are. And NBC and ABC and CBS.”
Not only that, but he confirmed what liberals have always known, Bill O’Reilly is nothing more than a pompous gas-bag who reports on his opinions far more than the actual news.
Olbermann made quite a compelling argument that no one could really disagree with…no one with a brain anyway.
“Olbermann had all the evidence possible. It’s not new.”
“No one expects much out of O’Reilly as a Fox News host. No one expects the truth. He’s been caught in numerous lies, and those have never been a story. To the Fox News cult, this kind of thing doesn’t matter. It’s a lie from the liberal media.”
Faux News followers still proclaim that O’Reilly is God-like, and they will continue to drink the Kool-aid.
Burns said O’Reilly is allowed to run amok at Fox News, saying whatever the hell he pleases:
“The extreme right… they never had their own television station. When they got one, their appreciation, their audience loyalty — and I know what the audience loyalty was like when I was there — their audience loyalty soared. And so O’Reilly as the head of the cult is not held to the same standards as Brian Williams.”
