Just prior to a Trump-inspired 72 hours' hate, in what can only be described by the worst announcement timing ever, Fox News announced its streaming propaganda channel, Fox Nation. You can access it by phone, computer and select TV devices, just like NRATV. What can possibly go wrong?

Via The Hollywood Reporter, Fox announced the service it's been teasing for months will formally hit the market on Nov. 27 and will cost $5.99/month or $64.99/year. Or you can get one of four new Fox Nation membership offerings, including one- (during impeachment), two- (during new Democrat President & Senate) and three-year (during the first year of new Democrat president and Fox Nation's first inaugural victimhood year!) subscription packages.

These limited "Founders" packages, of course, come with swag that will instantly let your friends and family know that you are THE one to avoid during all holidays & social gatherings and social media.


What's a Fox News package without getting you some 'gold coins'?

Fox Nation will stream exclusive programming (and some Fox News audio) and not outright replace Fox News Channel because they already have the older propaganda brainwashed cable news audience on lock and many rural areas (their audience) do not have good internet access.

The goal was outlined by Senior VP of development and production John Finley:

We are incredibly excited to bring our viewers exclusive access, content and experiences from our Fox News stars at an attainable price [...] In an on-demand era of viewers watching content wherever and whenever they want, Fox Nation will complement and enhance our powerhouse Fox News programming for the loyal superfans who want to remain connected to our signature platforms.

"Superfans" like Donald Trump, your racist uncle and Cesar Sayoc Jr. can enjoy "great programming" like:

Brian Kilmeade with his own show. What a delight...

And all your diverse Fox News personalities:

They have to vary the background colors since most of their personalities don't

This was not a surprise after Disney announced in December 2017 that it would acquire the majority of 21st Century Fox. This will bring Avatar, Fox's MARVEL properties, Aliens, Predator, and The Simpsons, as well as networks FX and National Geographic, to Disney. Disney will pay $52.4 billion for Fox, but will spin off Fox broadcast networks, the Fox News Channel and Fox Business Channel, the Fox studio lot in Los Angeles and several national sports channels, leaving them in the hands of Fox chairman Rupert Murdoch and his family. Murdoch said in a statement at the time:

The New Fox will draw upon the powerful live news and sports businesses of Fox, as well as the strength of our broadcast network.

Fox Nation seems to be the first step of the "New Fox." Like "New Coke," it will probably be new packaging but retain the same xenophobic flavor and sexual harassment as the original Fox News. Maybe they can get the former "New Coke" spokesman! (He's available and quite on brand.)

If not, I'm sure based on this Geraldo's tweet...

...after the recent suspension and cancellation of her NBC show, looks like Megyn Kelly could finally go home again.

'Bella" by Wonkette Operative 'IdiokraticSubpoenaKommissar'

Sunday already, which means a substantial portion of US America is preparing to be astonished/heartbroken/outraged by the series finale of that show with the dragons, while another portion is just going to stay off Twitter for three days because nothing will make any sense. Yr Dok Zoom tends to come very late to trendy things, so get ready for our own thoughts on the gamy thrones show sometime in about 2023, or never. But we'd be glad to tell you just how much we enjoy the brilliance and humanity of the Cartoon Network series "Steven Universe," which debuted in 2013 and we started bingeing on the Hulu last month, late again.

Hell, we still want to talk about that one Mrs Landingham episode of "The West Wing," which we first watched years after it aired (We finally bought our new used car yesterday, and know one thing: don't drive over to the White House to show it off to President Bartlet). We might even get around to reading Infinite Jest someday. We hear it has something to do with a superhero team and a guy named Thanos. So hey, let's talk about culture and missing out and patching together some knowledge of what's happening anyway.

Get Me Roger Stone

Roger Stone, his wife would like you to know, is broke. And he is not dealing with it well. Once in khaki suits, gee, he looked swell, full of that yankee-doodle-dee-dum, but now no one calls him Al anymore and he has to stand on a street corner singing "Brother Can You Spare A Dime?"

Yesterday, the conservative but also kind of Never Trumper site The Bulwark revealed the details of a grifty "fundraising" plea sent out by Stone's wife Nydia, begging supporters to give money to the Stones in order to help them keep up the lifestyle to which they have become accustomed.

It was titled "I am embarrassed to write this."

"Dear Friend," begins the missive. "My husband and I have an urgent new problem and we need your help. I told my husband I was going to write you, one of his most valued supporters. I am embarrassed to write this, but I must."

"Mrs. Roger Stone" tells a tale of woe: FBI agents swooping in on them at the crack of dawn to arrest her husband, a subsequent "fake news" feeding frenzy causing friends and fans to abandon the Stones.

"He laid off all our consultants, contractors and employees, and we have 'pulled in our belts' like so many Americans in 'tight times,'" she wrote, sounding for all the world like a plucky working-class patriot, not the wife of a man who made and lost his fortune lying in the service of power.

She should have been more embarrassed.
