Fox News is awful but not primarily responsible for our ideology-ridden culture; it's been an accelerating problem since at least the 1960s.
William F. Buckley was continually using attack dog attitudes in addressing anyone not suitably to the right. He was an idol to the young Republicans of the 80's. As time went on, we get to Fox News and others, whose main deal is ideologically driven view of events over and above any sort of critical thinking. Why else would anyone take a simple line from a movie review which is pointing out a relevant issue withing the film and turn a memorial thread into jack ass insults of the man's memory?
