How Fox Influences and Covers Impeachment



Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Julie Millican, Vice President of Media Matters for America.

As the Senate impeachment trial against President Donald Trump continues this week there has been wall-to-wall media coverage of the historical event given that it is only the third time in the nation’s entire history that US Senators are being asked to consider removing a President from office. But one media outlet stands out in its coverage and that is, of course, the President’s favorite: Fox News.

Fox News, which has a symbiotic relationship with the current White House, has not only mocked the case for impeachment as harshly as possible and claimed the President’s innocence, but has also seen its own talking points reflected back by the President’ legal defense team.

Rising Up with Sonali is a radio and television show that brings progressive news coverage rooted in gender and racial justice to a wide audience.

Rising Up With Sonali was built on the foundation of Sonali Kolhatkar's earlier show, Uprising, which became the longest-running drive-time radio show on KPFK in Los Angeles hosted by a woman. RUS airs on Free Speech TV every weekday.
