Also, for quarter 2...Fox Corp was Fox News' 4th biggest advertiser in terms of spend. Fox Corp (aka Fox News) basically bought a bunch of ads on Fox News during Q2...and then tout that as somehow bucking a larger market trend. That's not revenue.

So, this seems like borderline fraud and Fox should probably be investigated. For starters, in Q2 Fox Corp made very large “purchases” of ads on Fox News - something they hadn’t done before. On many Fox News shows, Fox Corp is Fox News’ second largest “advertiser”

Trump tries to compare the coronavirus outbreak in the US to other countries like Japan. Japan had 853 new cases yesterday -- the US had 47,335.

This is a big deal. Much as Trump et al want, domestic groups like the anti-fascist movement can't be formally labeled terror orgs. But tying them to foreign groups like the YPG (based on <12 people, incl. those who don't ID as antifa) opens them to otherwise-illegal surveillance
