That’s what I told Fox Nation in an extensive interview earlier this year. Now the four-part series is out and I get to see the whole thing. I’m looking forward to it.
To view the 20-25 minute episodes, you will have to sign up and spend at least 99 cents.
Before agreeing to the interview, I asked myself a question:
Should I do an interview for a streaming service (Fox Nation) that feeds Fox News, which systematically misrepresents voter suppression, the January 6 insurrection, and climate change
I decided yes for a couple of reasons.
First I have been treated fairly by Fox News in the past. Check out what Fox correspondent James Rosen wrote about my work in 2013.
Second, doing an interview for a documentary strikes me as different than appearing on someone’s show (eg Tucker Carlson) where an appearance might imply endorsement of that person. Am I endorsing Fox Nation? No. I’m trying to reach its audience.
Third, i’m glad that the JFK assassination is one topic where my pro-Trump friends and family and I can agree: the government needs to come clean. JFK is not part of the ongoing culture war and I want to keep it that way.
I agreed to do the Fox Nation interview because I think the state of the JFK case today is an important topic and I want to reach as many people as possible, including people with whom I have profound disagreement other issues.
Does that make sense?
