Fox News Goes 4 1/2 Hours in Primetime Without Once Mentioning GM Layoffs

General Motors announcing a plan to close multiple U.S. factories and lay off nearly 15,000 workers rightly led most newspapers this morning, but if you’re an avid Fox News prime-time viewer, you’d never know about it. The cable-news leader managed to go its entire evening slate—from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m.—without once mentioning the devastating corporate overhaul. Some things Fox News determined to be more worthy of coverage:

  • Hillary Clinton
  • Hillary Clinton, again
  • Hillary Clinton and Barbra Streisand
  • A right-wing troll who lost his Twitter account
  • A Trump rally in Mississippi
  • Fears of the “Deep State”
  • Sean Hannity saying the word “moist”

...oh, and a whole lot of coverage of the migrant caravan.
