Policing Fox News is a big job. And CNN’s Oliver Darcy can’t do it all by himself. Brian Stelter pitches in frequently, but that’s still not enough.
Sometimes, Oliver needs the really big guns:
"A Media Matters review found that between May 11 and May 26, the coronavirus’s total U.S. numeric death toll was mentioned between the hours of 8-11 p.m. on Fox only 11 times in almost 36 hours of programming…" https://t.co/walJqlWUrK

Only the most serious journalists cite research conducted by Media Matters.

Citing media matters again.

Lol at using @mmfa as a legitimate news source.
At least you can stop pretending you’re not a biased hack.

The seamless meld between CNN’s media watchers and the progressive activists at Media Matters has been fascinating to watch. https://t.co/k0PxiTUCTA

It really has.
You realize citing them undermines your credibility on being nonpartisan?

To be fair, I think they've dispensed with any notion of being objective.

And just how many times did your intellectually bankrupt news outfit mention NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo sentencing more than 5,000 nursing home residents to death from the Chinese global pandemic sir? We await your answer.

Sorry, but Oliver only has eyes for Fox News.
I truly believe all you do is watch Fox and complain. Is that what CNN pays you for?
Aren't you supposed to be a journalist rather than a TV critic?
