Sutter, who executive produces Mayans MC for FX and 20th Century Fox subsidiary Fox21, says of Fox News and its coverage of President Trump's child separation policy: "The political decision made by this administration was heinous. But I don’t consider what Fox airs as 'news.' It’s manipulative propaganda, run by oligarchs, delivered by puppets, to control the fearful. What I do with FX and Fox 21 is not influenced by that energy. Yes, we are all owed by the parent company, but contrarily, at FX, other artists and myself are given the freedom to tell stories that address real issues in a truthful way. I guess we just learn to live with the sad irony that our fiction is more truthful than Fox News’ facts."
