No media outlet has done more to bolster President Trump over the past four years than Fox News.

“It was an organic thing across social media and elsewhere,” Newsmax founder and CEO Christopher Ruddy said in an interview. He said the message was: “Take a look at Newsmax. Their coverage is more fair.”
“More fair” meaning: More willing to deny political reality.
