“We were the reason Fox News was created,” Chelsea said.

“Because Rupert Murdoch recognized a huge market opportunity.”

Addressing his coverage of climate change, he continued: “Climate change has illuminated where Fox News was willing to go and its destructive impact.

“It’s not just about Fox News; they are also conservative and right-wing societies that emerged in the 1990s and early 2000s “.

He added: “I’m 42 and when I was in high school, two thirds of Americans knew that human activity is partly responsible for climate change.

“The right wing has proven itself: ‘We can hit people with relentless misinformation and infiltrate their homes every night so they don’t believe the scientists. What else could be possible?’ Today, with COVID, it’s the same playbook “.

His mother was asked if he thought he would win the 2016 election if Facebook was never invented.

“I can’t do it hypothetically,” he said.

“I think it would have been more difficult, but I can’t speculate what would have been different.”
