The announcement is imminent that Israel and Hamas have reached a deal on a ceasefire and the release of hostages. The news has dominated every out, but Fox News has mostly ignored it.

Fox has spent lots of time talking about Biden’s age and the cost of Thanksgiving dinner, but what they won’t be talking about is how the Biden administration got Israel and Hamas to take the first step toward de-escalating their war.
Fox News would rather continue to make dishonest arguments and paint a picture of a nation in crisis than give President Biden credit for anything.
Biden faces a difficult enough time getting legacy corporate media to pay attention to anything that he does, but the fundamentally dishonest principle that guides Fox News is that everything Democrats do is bad and every wrong in the world is their responsibility.
Fox News viewers are being intentionally misinformed, and that misinformation is created a less educated electorate that is more vulnerable to the authoritarian hopes and dreams of Donald Trump.
