Holocaust Expert Compares Fox News To Hitler’s Ministry Of Propaganda

A free press is a pillar of democracy and a guard against authoritarianism. While Hitler used a new Ministry of People’s Enlightenment and Propaganda headed by Joseph Goebbels to undermine liberal democracy, President Donald Trump seems to be using Fox News.

Historian Christopher R. Browning drew such parallels late last year in a piece for New York Review of Books called "The Suffocation of Democracy."

Fox consistently confirms Trump’s own version of events. Trump then uses Fox News reports in his tweets and other statements to reaffirm his own story.

The reports on Fox News are practically unrecognizable to watchers of CNN or MSNBC. The free media has effectively allowed Trump to lie to any viewer of Fox News with no repercussions.

Regardless of how his presidency ends, Trump’s shadow will loom over American politics for generations.
