Holding Fox News Accountable for Deadly Lies

A recent Consumer Protection Act empowers the FTC to investigate and punish companies or people trying to profit from certain misinformation. Is there now a way to protect America from the dangerous lies spewed by various Fox News hosts?

Millions of Americans believe every word said by presenters on Fox News, while never fact checking what they say. Are Fox News staff so far into their own news bubble, that they don’t even know they are misleading their viewers? Or is there something more sinister going on?

Dean Obeidallah joins Thom Hartmann to discuss just what fact checking of Fox News is revealing and why untruths are their business plan.
