Each general election the voters of each district (650 total) vote for their Parliament members (MP) who then essentially determine the prime minister. The method selecting a prime minister in the UK is an internal affair (think American primary but more inclusive), which is then defacto decided by members of Parliament who with a simple majority can remove him/her (vote of no confidence).

This is how prime ministers have been selected since at a minimum, the 1900s but I do think even the 1800s as well, albiet with voter in parenthesis at times since districts were... Not equal.

It helps when you don't broadly mischaracterize the case as the person you replied to does. Fox claimed that Carlson wasn't their news anchor but an opinion/entertainment feature. Something nobody with a brain disagrees with. CNN does have those folks too, Chris Coumo was one.

They didn't claim they werent a news station as the Fox news desk is a thing. Fox news desk has the same level of factualness as CNN and slightly higher than MSNBC (they're all in the C grade) with an equal bias to both.
