The US Capitol rioter known as Anthony Antonio was ‘hooked’ on Fox News and developed “Foxitis,” his lawyer said Thursday in a virtual hearing. After losing his job the defendant spend six months watching FoX News and developed what his lawyer called “Foxitis” and “Foxmania,” and believed the lies perpetuated about the 2020 election from Fox News and then-President Trump.

“He believed what was being fed to him,” his lawyer said.
While many Capitol riot defendants have blamed Trump for their criminal behavior none have had legal success with this defense.
It’s worth noting that even though Antonio insisted he came for a ‘peaceful’ demonstration he was wearing a tactical bulletproof vest.
If you know someone with ‘Foxitis’ experts recommend blocking the FOX news channel on the afflicted’s  TV immediately.
