Former Georgia Lt. Gov. Jeff Duncan (R) offered his two cents about the damage Fox News has done by “fanning the flames of all these conspiracy theories” on its network.
Duncan weighed in on the ramifications of the network’s coverage on the Republican Party — and on viewers — during a State of the Union panel Sunday.
“What happened on Fox News was difficult for the Republican Party, wasn’t it?” Duncan said.
“It allowed, it might take a decade to unravel some of these, to fan the flames of all these conspiracy theories and it was painful to watch and listen to.”
He added that all media must find a better balance in running a for-profit business operation with its mission to share the news.
Karen Finney, spokeswoman for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, also joined the panel and slammed Fox News for promoting “lies that led to violence” like the one seen during the Jan. 6 attack.
“We’re still in a country that is largely divided on whether you believe the 2020 election was legitimate,” Feeney said.
“Fox News — ‘news’ — was part of creating this divisive part of America, and it’s a shame, frankly.”
