The big problem with comparing Trump to Nixon

  • Donald Trump may look a lot like Richard Nixon right now. But there is one glaring difference between these two men’s presidencies: Fox News.Subscribe to our channel! and Nixon are similar in a lot of ways: they both faced major FBI investigations, were accused of obstructing justice, lashed out at the media, and oozed raw sexual charisma. Some pundits look at those similarities and assert that, like Nixon, Trump will also face impeachment.But Nixon never had Fox News. As trust in mainstream media has collapsed over the past 40 years, the amount of conservative media has exploded. And sources like Fox News have spent months casting doubt on the FBI and the Mueller special investigation. Without a uniting narrative in the media, it’s unlikely Trump will face impeachment or that Republicans in Congress will be the ones to hold the president accountable for his actions, regardless of what Mueller ultimately finds. On Strikethrough, Vox producer Carlos Maza explores the challenges facing the news media in the age of Trump.

    Fox news isn't just supporting Trump -- they're speaking directly to him. Watch the Strikethrough episode on it here:

    It’s funny how the FBI was the best, most respectable agency in America when they were investigating Clinton, but now that they’ve turned their eyes to Trump Republicans say they’re full of corruption and need a cleansing >.>

    Dear Vox, I was wondering if you could do a video about the different types of Democrats, such as Democratic Socialist, or Progressive Democrat? What's the difference of them all.Could you also point out the sudden fall of Hillary? What exactly did she do that made everyone, including her own party hate her?(I'm not choosing sides, but I don't know.)

    Sadly for her, I think there's something about Hillary Clinton that makes it impossible for a broad swath of people to like her. Elections are popularity contests to an extent. Of course misogynists have been talking trash about her ever since she was First Lady of Arkansas. She didn't help herself with the whole email debacle: she should have just said "yes, I shouldn't have been looking at highly confidential emails on my phone. I did so because the way the government has its servers set up make...

    It's entertaining watching it burn down but that is putting CO2 into the atmosphere which affects us all so

    WithAllSpices if a decline in unemployment in the nation means that it is “slowly” starting to “burn” then I wonder what success is?

    The unbiased truth is still out there, we today just have to do much more legwork. If you sit and watch Fox News all day, your world view is skewed. If you sit and watch Vox all day, your world view is skewed. You need to think independently and critically. Glean from sources on both sides.Look to traditionally moderate or unbiased sources. NPR is left leaning moderate. BBC is a solid source as they have no real reason to spin American politics for their viewers as an outside media outlet. Above all e...

    Reuters is also a decent source. NYT leans left but seems to be pretty spot on. Bloomberg can be spot on, but it leans right.
