The oldest profession is generally agreed to be that of story teller. Considering that all those centuries ago, there was no TV, radio, cell phones, or even cheap pens and paper to facilitate communication, it would make sense that someone could make a living telling stories.
These days the media include social media, made possible by the almighty internet. It's not enough just to have a TV news program. The show has to have a website, a facebook and a Twitter feed.
The second oldest profession - the one we dare not name - has also advanced into the 21st century, though not all TV talking heads are good story tellers – especially those on Fox News.
These "talking heads," and I use that phrase generously here, sell their souls for a paycheck and a degree of fame. The recite the Fox "version" of the news, claim it is fair and balanced, while we all know it isn't.
What do you call a person who works at Fox News? A Foxtitute.
These Fox TV personalities have sold out. They recite untruths, repeat them over and over until they have traction, and viewers accept the "news" as fact.
Fox News as Religion
It's simple, Fox News is like religion: without faith, it's hard to believe.
