image for Michael Moore: Fox News Helped Create Generation Of 'Violent Conspiracy Theorists’

Michael Moore said Fox News is partly to blame for helping to create a generation of violent conspiracy theorists in America.

The filmmaker’s criticism of the conservative network came after an image of his face in crosshairs was found stickered on the van of suspect Cesar Sayoc, who is accused of mailing pipe bombs this week to leading Democrats, critics of President Donald Trump and CNN.

He also called for people to “vote out of office all enablers of this man and the violent culture he instigates and nurtures. »

The tamper-proof screws didn’t work, all the computing equipment was still intact, and the hard drives had not been wiped.
