Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Businessinsider.com: “Fox News dedicated a segment to QAnon, and supporters of the conspiracy theory are happy for the attention”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

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.

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.
