First of all, let me just say I would not listen to Warren because quite frankly, she is a hate machine.
If Fox News is responsible for El Paso, is Warren then responsible for the shooting in Dayton by one of her supporters? Democrats are all blaming the president for the shootings without a solid piece of evidence. In fact, the shooter was a Trump hater, but somehow the Democrats still blame our president.
But, Warren takes it a step further and Blames Fox News. I’ve never heard a Fox host praise white supremacists. But I have heard the lamestream press praise Antifa and defend MS-13.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) continued her assault on Fox News on Sunday evening in the wake of the El Paso, Texas, mass shooting the day before, tweeting: “We need to call it out: Fox News is a hate-for-profit machine that gives a megaphone to racists and conspiracists.”
Warren was responding to a tweet by Leah Greenberg, one of the leaders of the “Indivisible” movement that helped Democrats re-take the House in the 2018 midterm elections.

Warren has attacked Fox News on numerous previous occasions. In May, she turned downan invitation to hold a town hall on Fox News, and appeared to endorse boycotts of the network:
Fox News is a hate-for-profit racket that gives a megaphone to racists and conspiracists—it’s designed to turn us against each other, risking life and death consequences, to provide cover for the corruption that’s rotting our government and hollowing out our middle class.
Hate-for-profit works only if there’s profit, so Fox News balances a mix of bigotry, racism, and outright lies with enough legit journalism to make the claim to advertisers that it’s a reputable news outlet. It’s all about dragging in ad money—big ad money.
But Fox News is struggling as more and more advertisers pull out of their hate-filled space. A Democratic town hall gives the Fox News sales team a way to tell potential sponsors it’s safe to buy ads on Fox—no harm to their brand or reputation (spoiler: It’s not).
