The Senate impeachment trial for former President Trump continues today, and New York Times columnist and North Korea apologist Nick Kristoff is wondering if Fox News should be made to be a co-defendant of sorts:
My new column: "Can we put Fox News on trial with Trump?" With a couple of suggestions for how to do that. Hint: Should every American with basic cable have to pay $20 a year to Fox News to underwrite extremists and seditionists? https://t.co/1aM08SDlho pic.twitter.com/z8BIVPdC55
