Jon Meacham: If Republicans Could Speak Truth on Fox, the Republic Would Be Saved

‘We’re still fighting nascent fascism in this country, let’s be very clear’

EXCERPT:

MEACHAM: "Oh, yeah, I don’t think — this idea that there’s a group of satraps who — if only they would beam in and speak truth on Fox, the republic would be saved, I think we’re way past that. We’re still fighting nascent fascism in this country, let’s be very clear. And when Sen. McConnell said what he said about the insurrection and said after he voted against impeachment, what he said about impeachment, it’s a little like the line in Tom Sawyer, where an Evangelist came through town, who was so good that they said Huck Finn was saved until Tuesday. So they get saved until Tuesday, then they forget.”
