Fox News dedicated a segment to QAnon, and supporters of the conspiracy theory are happy for the attention

fox news watters' world

Fox News’ Jesse Watters did a segment explaining the conspiracy theory QAnon, and his neutral-to-positive spin on the topic was well-received by its supporters online.
“Q,” the figure at the center of the popular but easily discredited theory, even posted that the “Watters’ World” segment “generates awareness.”
The QAnon theory encapsulates a number of pervasive conspiracies, but at its core involves the idea that President Donald Trump is secretly working to take down a satanic child sex trafficking operation run in part by Hillary Clinton, who Q says will be taken to Guantanamo Bay in an operation termed the “Great Awakening.”
Watters didn’t discredit the theory and said one of his good friends was a believer. Some QAnon supporters even suggested that there was “pushback” from Watters against the political science professor he interviewed, who emphasized that QAnon was a fantastical conspiracy theory.

A Fox News segment explaining the QAnon conspiracy was received positively online by its supporters, who believe President Donald Trump is secretly conducting an operation to expose Hillary Clinton and other prominent Democrats for running a satanic child sex trafficking operation.

Jesse Watters, host of “Watters’ World,” interviewed a political science professor about QAnon, and offered a few neutral to positive takes – conflating the more outrageous, easily debunked parts of the theory with real events (investigations into Trump’s conduct) and noting that one of his good friends is a QAnon supporter.

Before the segment aired, “Q,” the central figure of the conspiracy, posted that it would be biased but that more discussion “generates awareness” for the theory. Q posts on 4chan, an image-based forum that houses several fringe right0-wing communities, and claims to have “Q clearance” in the Trump administration, giving him access to top-secret information.

As Watters’ guest explained QAnon, the Fox News host stayed away from criticism of the outrageous conspiracy

Watters’ guest, Joseph Ucsinski, an associate professor at Miami University, described QAnon as a theory that originated around two years ago about “a battle going that was going on between Donald Trump against the deep state,” made up of satanic pedophiles, including Clinton and John Podesta, former White House Chief of Staff and Clinton’s presidential campaign chair.

Ucsinski zeroed in on the more outlandish aspects of the theory, which is overall objectively disputable for numerous reasons, but is extremely pervasive and has been indirectly supported …read more

The new season of Rick and Morty on Adult Swim is already phenomenal, and it seems like the best is still yet to come. If you’re used to watching episodes of Rick and Morty on Hulu, then you may be wondering just when you’ll be able to watch Rick and Morty Season 4 Episode 4 on Hulu.

Steve Harvey Is Back Hosting the Miss Universe 2019 Pageant

For the fifth consecutive year, Steve Harvey is hosting the Miss Universe pageant on FOX. As if this comedian, actor, talk show host, game show host, radio personality, and father of seven children doesn’t have enough to do already, he is once again taking the stage with nearly 100 beautiful, worldly women to help crown Miss Universe 2019.

In a recent behind-the-scenes segment from Family Feud where Harvey answers audience questions, someone asked him if he would ever host Miss Universe again and he chuckled and said of course.

“Why, is that a problem?” Harvey joked. “Y’all thought since I f*cked the name up that was it? Guess you figure when you f*ck it up one time, I’m surprised they keep having your stupid *ss back,” Harvey deadpanned.

The comedian is referencing his infamous gaffe in 2015 when he announced the wrong name during the big moment where he was crowning the winner. Harvey said that Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez was the winner — she even did a walk-and-wave, reveling in her win. But then Harvey had to come out and apologize and reveal that Miss Colombia was actually first runner-up and the winner was Miss Philippines Pia Wurtzbach.

Harvey subsequently welcomed Wurtzbach on his talk show and apologized profusely for the mistake.

“I’m truly sorry, I wish we all could have gotten it right that night,” said Harvey at the time, adding that he was receiving death threats and harassment online after his mistake.

“Don’t beat yourself up for this anymore,” says Wutzbach. “Move forward, let’s just be happy.”

Later, Harvey and Gutierrez were visibly emotional when they sat down together to talk about what happened.

“After all that happened, the only thing I wanted to do was be with my family and take a rest from everything that I went through. It took time because I couldn’t stop thinking [about it] … it was like a nightmare,” said Gutierrez.

“I just want to say how sorry I am. I’m beyond sorry for what happened that night,” said Harvey.

The gaffe didn’t stop the Miss Universe organization from supporting Harvey. He has hosted every year since the famous debacle.

The 2019 Miss Universe pageant airs live Sunday (Dec. 8) from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. ET/PT on FOX.
