Summary
President Donald Trump watches over six hours of Fox News a day, a habit his staff refers to as 'executive time.' In January 2020, when Fox News began to downplay COVID-19, the President was quick to agree. In March, as the deadly virus spiraled out of control, Sean Hannity mocked "coronavirus hysteria." Stelter tells how Trump has exploited the leadership vacuum at the top to effectively seize control of the network. He exposes the media personalities who, though morally bankrupt, profit outrageously by promoting the President's propaganda and radicalizing the American right. -- adapted from jacket
