A Commentary on the January 6th Hearings, Fox News, Facts, Integrity & American Elections

This combines two posts that I ran this week directly on Facebook on Thursday, July 21 and Friday, July 22. Thursday I find it “interesting,” though hardly surprising, that Fox News isn’t carrying tonight’s January 6th hearing.
