Roger Ailes largely built Fox News as a response to the media painting Nixon as so terrible he had to resign. He wanted a propaganda network so that would never happen again. And it worked. The party kept building the party on top of Nixon's ideas. That's what the southern strategy is. Click to expand... Click to shrink... Good point on Fox News and the Republican propaganda machine. It was a Nixon era propaganda strategy that Ailes implemented. It pretty much enabled all of this horrible stuff to persist for generations, and get progressively worse. It created the Republican cult we see today.
