I began noticing the strange, yet obvious, disparities of trending news between Fox News and every other news outlet early in the summer. It was right around the same time my friend, Mike Reynolds, editor of the TX Citizen, a New Braunfels, Texas alt. rag began posting screenshots of his Apple News feed to his Facebook page.
For me, it started out as comedy. Then it became strange. Then concerning. And then, well, as most terrible things are oft to do, it became funny again.
A trend within the trends was that whenever the main news stories of the day involved President Donald Trump and/or his administration in some kind of negative light, where most all other news outlets such as the Washington Post, New York Times, CNN—you know, the fake news—the trending stories on Fox were topics so far removed from what everyone else was reading that it had to give one pause and wonder what planet its readers were on. In short, if the big news stories of the day dealt with North Korea’s boner to kill everyone, Russia in the White House or the rise of American Nazis, Fox News readers were flocking to stories about nude celebrities, a dad trying to get you to date his daughter or boys taking naps with cows. Really.
From this unofficial and institutionally unsponsored study and collection of evidence, it can be determined that Fox News readers—enough to set the trend for online news—are kings and queens of perversion and avoiding the hard truth that their president, their country and their world are going to absolute hell in a weighted hand basket that is already engulfed in flames. But hey, at least Sofia Vergara is posing completely nude at 45. (And that’s her age, not President Trump, you sickos.)
The only other explanation for this is that there is some great conspiracy involving the Apple News feed on iPhones to make Fox News and its readers look foolish. Wouldn’t that explain why the gov’mnt wanted to hack into our iPhones? This alleged conspiracy may likely wind up a trending headline on Fox News the day Trump is impeached.
I collected screenshots from my own iPhone and I share them with you as evidence and for a good, laugh. Although, this is less of a knee-slapper than a head-scratcher.
