Conservative columnist David Frum, who was speechwriter for former President George W. Bush, blasted Fox News on Sunday for creating an “alternative knowledge system.”

"These media institutions, they started as political projects. They started as ways to offer an alternative point of view on current events. They have become an important industry and so they see the conservative world not as a set of ideas, but as a demographic and the way you appeal to a demographic is working by conflict."
