quoted from the article
At one point, after watching North Korean television, which is entirely state-run, the president talked about how positive the female North Korean news anchor was toward Kim, according to two people familiar with his remarks. He joked that even the administration-friendly Fox News was not as lavish in its praise as the state TV anchor, one of the people added, and that maybe she should get a job on U.S. television, instead.
Trump Thought North Korea State TV Was Even Better Than Fox

This is about the most insulting thing a president can say about a major news network. He's bragging about how much Fox News resembles Kim's propaganda network. Sure, he's saying it as a "joke" somewhat implausibly. But still, how can the folks over at Fox News look at themselves in the mirror when the president is telling the world that he views them as state run media?

i thin kthat's what they WANT to be.. they worked towars that for years.. to be the propaganda TV for the GOP. And now that Trump is the GOP, they do jjust that.

And they love it, because THEY actually dictate to Trump - through their F&F and Hannity reporting - what he's supposed to focus on, to work on, and what he's supposed to tweet.
And so he does.
It's a deal of a lifetime for them.. they run the country in any of their interest through Trump.

So in the end, we have a Fox controlled President, rather than a state controlled Fox News.. and maybe THAT's why they love to look at themselves in the mirror, laughing their jocks off.

that may well be. But, it can't be good for their network to have the president officially labeling them as state run media.

It is a Conservative POV media, and attaches itself to the "conservative du jour", which in this case is Trump, but will move on to the next "Conservative Dear Leader" once Trump falls...

I saw that. Trump was REALLY IMPRESSED. How well they treated the little rocket man. (Ah what a difference a couple of months makes, huh?)
