The Feedback Loop – Fox and Friends and Trump’s Twitter Feed

October 30th, 2017

Fox News Network’s “Fox and Friends” has become the all-but-in-name media wing of the Trump White House. They craft a narrative out of current events designed to comfort their most important audience member (the President). An hour or two later Trump Tweets out his praise for their so-called “coverage.” The next day Trump’s Tweet becomes a key talking point on the next installment of “Fox and Friends.” In this never-ending feedback loop — a true echo chamber — all of the early warning bells of a dawning fascism are going off.
