Fox News Coverage of Critical Race Theory Plummeted After Virginia Election

  Fox News Coverage of Critical Race Theory Plummeted After Virginia Election The network is not giving anywhere near as much attention on the theory being taught in schools following Glenn Youngkin's victory.In the months prior to the governor election in Virginia, Fox News ramped up its coverage of the academic theory which argues racism is systemic in the nation's institutions and laws, and helps maintain the dominance of white people in society, after previously seeing a major spike in July, data from the GDELT Project reveals.

More than a year after Donald Trump decisively lost the 2020 presidential election, there are still some pro-Trump Fox News personalities who believe the “Big Lie” that the election was stolen.

Fox News host Sean Duffy, a former Republican congressman and ex-cast member of MTV’s The Real World, used concerns over a newly identified COVID-19 variant on Friday to baselessly accuse Democrats of “cheating” in the 2020 elections.

Filling in as one of the panelists on late-afternoon opinion show The Five, Duffy quickly pivoted from his co-hosts’ complaints that President Joe Biden hasn’t done enough to stem the tide of COVID-19 to insisting that Democrats have exploited the ongoing pandemic.

“I think that if you look at the benefit of COVID for the Democrat Party, they won the last election based on COVID,” Duffy said. “They were able to change election rules. So made it far easier to cheat and potentially steal different portions of the electorate in the last election.”

Lone liberal co-host Jessica Tarlov quickly interjected, asking Duffy if he was indeed saying “the election was stolen,” prompting him to double down.

“Do I think there was cheating in my state of Wisconsin? Hell yes, there was cheating! Now did it change the results? I don’t know.”

After Tarlov wondered if Duffy was saying “you don’t know or you know,” the one-time reality TV star argued that he didn’t “say it changed the election results.” Co-host Dagen McDowell, meanwhile, jumped in and told the pair to “fight about this in the break” and “just stay on COVID!”

Why the Arizona Election-Audit Circus Just Won’t End

  Why the Arizona Election-Audit Circus Just Won’t End A guide to how votes from Maricopa County were subjected to a sloppy recount, why it’s still dragging on, and what its proponents are really after.But Trump and his allies in Arizona have not been dissuaded by such independent findings, or their own failure to turn up any convincing evidence that Joe Biden only won the state through nefarious means. Since April, private parties answering to a faction of Republicans in the state Senate have been conducting an “audit” of Maricopa County’s 2020 election results.

Duffy, however, was given a chance to finish his point. Claiming that the government “can impose broader rules in regard to elections that will benefit Democrats,” he then wondered “why haven’t we shut down the border and stop people coming over the border.” He went on to suggest this was part of an ulterior Democratic plan.

“With COVID, if you can shut down an economy, more people are dependent on the government,” he declared. “Who is the party of government-dependence? Democrats. So I think they see this as a victory for them to win elections.”

McDowell then offered to allow Tarlov to rebut Duffy before moving on to another panelist, only for the liberal Fox contributor to demur and give another co-host a chance to speak. McDowell gave a partial endorsement of Duffy’s remarks before moving on.

“To Sean’s point, I worry about overreaction and people using this,” she stated. “Again, when do people give up civil liberties and freedoms? It’s when they’re in fear and so it benefits, certainly liberals, that like that level of control and power.”

  We watched Tucker Carlson's Jan. 6 documentary so you don't have to. Here's why its whitewash of the Capitol insurrection makes no sense. The documentary has led to resignations among Fox News contributors for glossing over the siege's violence and lionizing its participants.This erroneous and misleading alternate history has succeeded in stirring more concerns about the increasingly radioactive Fox opinion host, with two longtime network contributors recently resigning over it.

A large number of Republicans and right-wing pundits have argued since last year’s elections that Trump only lost due to widespread election fraud, with many claiming the increase in mail-in voting in battleground states due to the pandemic was illegal and unconstitutional. Dozens of courts, including the United States Supreme Court, have thrown out these cases contesting the election results.

Fox News, for its part, has largely tamped down election denialism on its airwaves since Joe Biden was inaugurated, most likely due to the pending defamation lawsuits from voting software firms Smartmatic and Dominion over election fraud lies that voting machines rigged votes. Fox News has filed motions to dismiss both lawsuits, citing First Amendment protections.
