Gina Sirois, I hate that I somehow missed your comment when you originally posted it. Thank you so much for attempting to help in defense of sanity. I’m really sorry about your Fox watching parents. Have you seen “The Brainwashing of My Dad”? It’s a great, well-researched, well-presented documentary by Jen Senko. Worth every second. This piece I wrote a while back might be of interest to you:

For Anyone Who’s Lost Loved Ones To Fox “News”

Also — you’re the first person I’ve “met” online who shares my last name (my last name by marriage). Which leads me to ask, are you French-Canadian? Or live up north? Maybe we’re related distantly :-)
