Jane Mayer on the Revolving Door Between Fox News and the White House
Donald Trump has made no secret of his great admiration for Fox Newsâ€”he tweets praise of it constantlyâ€”and his disdain for other, â€œfake newsâ€ outlets, which he regards as â€œenemies of the people.â€ But the closeness between Fox News and the White House is unprecedented in modern times,Â Jane MayerÂ tells David Remnick. In a recentÂ article, Mayer, a staff writer since 1995, analyzes a symbiotic relationship that boosts both Trumpâ€™s poll numbers and Rupert Murdochâ€™s bottom line. â€œI was trying to figure out who sets the tune that everybody plays during the course of the day,â€ Mayer says. â€œIf the news on Fox is all about some kind of caravan of immigrants supposedly invading America, whose idea is that? It turns out that it is this continual feedback loop.â€ Mayer pays particular attention to the role of Bill Shine, the former Fox News co-president and now former White House deputy chief of staff for communications. Shine resigned days after Mayer spoke to Remnick. In his tenure in the Administration, Shine helped create a revolving door through which those who craft the Administrationâ€™s political messaging and those who broadcast it regularly trade places. She also discovered that Shine was linked to the networkâ€™s practice of intimidating employees who alleged sexually harassment at work.
