“Toby . . . I created a TV network for people 55 to dead,” Ailes said.

“They look like me…white guys in mostly Red State counties who sit on their couch with the remote in their hand all day and night.”

“After the producers/host scares the shit out of them, I want to see YOU tear those smug condescending know-it-all East Coast liberals to pieces . . limb by limb . . . until they jump up out of their LaZ boy and scream “Way to go Toby…you KILLED that libtard!”

“And Joan they don’t want to see anyone like you,” looking directly at my liberal friend . “They don’t want to see you — they don’t even want to know that you exist!”

. . . he perpetrated the biggest TV scam ever . . . against the most vulnerable and gullible senior Americans . . . one that makes the game show fixing scandal of the late 50’s look like a tea party.

By careful design and staging Fox News manipulated (and ultimately addicted) the most vulnerable people in America to the most powerful drug cocktail ever: Visceral gut feelings of existential outrage relieved by the most powerful emotions of all . . . the thrill of your tribe’s victory over its enemy and the ultimate triumph of good over evil.

The outcomes for Fox’s “panel debates” have ALWAYS been carefully fixed by the producers so that the home team (i.e, the conservative panelists like me) ALWAYS won.

It‘s ’always been a scam; the Fox News tagline in reality should be “Fear & Unbalanced.”

All I had to do was perform my lines with conviction and leave the host enough time to “tease” the next totally choreographed and contrived segment.

At Fox News conservative contributors were expected to play their designated role on the air…especially on the “The O’Reilly Factor”

And what about those designated liberals aka “libtards” on my shows?

The goal at Fox News is explicit: Produce outrage inducing partisan performance art in sufficient emotional intensity to produce enough pleasure/dopamine to get their dopamine addicted viewer the high the need until the NEXT Fox News opinion program.

In short: there is NO better feeling in life than when a person’s existing beliefs are attacked and then a smart sounding expert PROVES you right all along. Fox News turns this process of ideological attack and ultimate victory of the righteous into partisan performance art of steroids.

But yet another big part of the Fox News scam is that many times the “Democratic Strategist” label was a ruse — let’s call them “fake analysts”.

Then of course another feature of compelling Fox News scripted performance art are the fake/contrived “cat fights.” What male DOESN’T love a good girl-on-girl fight in high definition TV?

“Tobin, I read your article on “fixed debates” at Fox. I can say the same thing happened on the Military analysts side of the house and is the main reason I tore up my contract in 2005 with Fox. Thank you for telling the truth!”

Liberal dudes aka “libtards” are mostly selected out of Liberals Central Casting… the smugger, nerdier and more ethnic looking the better.

“Man you KILLED that Libard on Saturday Tobin…I loved it!”

I knew what the “libtard” was going to say because their “POV” aka point of view talking points were in my hands BEFORE the segment ever taped.

To some people the idea of retirees yelling at the television all day may seem funny, but this isn’t a joke. We’re losing the nation’s grandparents, and it’s an American tragedy.
