Fox News, Faux News, Fox Snooze - The Lies Keep Pouring In

Whether you call them Fox News, Faux News, or Fox Snooze, they're really a news organization, aren't they?

From Addictinginfo.org, we learn otherwise:

"Analysis: Over Half of All Statements Made on Fox News Are False."

foxpundit

"A new analysis by PunditFact found that of every statement made by a Fox News host or guest, over half of them were flat-out false. What’s more, only a measly 8% could be considered completely “true.”

"In other words, a fancy review of hundreds of hours of video confirmed what many who watch Fox News with any regularity already know: Fox News lies. A lot. Like all the time.

"Which isn’t to say that exposing Fox News’ irresponsible journalism isn’t an admirable goal. Despite its blatant spin doctoring, Fox still captivates a large portion of the news watching audience. On a near nightly basis, Fox News programs like “The O’Reilly Factor” and “The Kelly File” crush the competition. Given what we know about how poorly Fox informs its viewers, that paints a pretty grim picture for the millions who consume it without question..."

Well, at least they started out as a news organization...

"How Roger Ailes Built the Fox News Fear Factory."

The Chairman: Roger Ailes at Fox News. The network says his "dear friend" Rush Limbaugh, "is a reflection of him."

"The onetime Nixon operative has created the most profitable propaganda machine in history. Inside America's Unfair and Imbalanced Network.

"The key to decoding Fox News isn’t Bill O’Reilly or Sean Hannity. It isn’t even News Corp. chief Rupert Murdoch. To understand what drives Fox News, and what its true purpose is, you must first understand Chairman Ailes. 'He is Fox News,' says Jane Hall, a decade-long Fox commentator who defected over Ailes’ embrace of the fear-mongering Glenn Beck. 'It’s his vision. It’s a reflection of him...'"

Anyway, Fox is a program that our children can watch...

"Bob Beckel Uses Racial Slur On Live Television."


"Fox News host Bob Beckel used a racial slur in a rant about China on 'The Five' Thursday.

"'The Chinese are the single biggest threat to the national security of the U.S.,' he said. 'They have been, they will be and they can wait, they're very patient. Do you know what we just did? As usual, we bring them over here and we teach a bunch of Chinamen -- er, Chinese people -- how to do computers and then they go back to China and hack into us.'

"The other 'Five' hosts gaped in disbelief..."

But that O'Reilly fellow is someone adults can all look up to...




I'm watching Fox News anyway, it's all the news I need, says the average Fox News fan...

"Ben Shapiro on Fox: Obama WH Is 'Borderline a Jew-Hating Administration.'"

Mrs. Shapiro's little boy, Benny.
"Conservative commentator Ben Shapiro threw some tough words President Obama‘s way when he said on The Kelly File Thursday night that the current administration not only hates Israel and is refusing to give it vital aid as it escalates with the Palestinian government, but it’s a borderline 'Jew-hating administration...'"

At least Fox News' viewers are young, vibrant citizens sticking up for their country...

"Half of Fox News' Viewers Are 68 and Older."



"Fox News is losing younger viewers at an even faster rate than its competitors. With a median viewer age now at 68 according to Nielsen data through mid-January (compared with 60 for MSNBC and CNN, and 62 to 64 for the broadcast networks), Fox is in essence a retirement community ... If it is actuarially possible, its median viewer age will keep creeping upward. (It rose by two years over the course of 2013.)..."

********************



Only a moron would watch Fox News and only an idiot would believe them. If 8 percent of their stories are true, it doesn't bode well for their listeners.

The Supreme Court said they can lie if they want, even though they're a "news" program, and the Supreme Court should join them on the ash heap of history.

Criminalizing Conservatism will solve the problem and let the country live in peace. Without propagandists like Limbaugh and Fox we wouldn't be  in this mess.

Criminalizing Conservatism will let us begin to repair the damage they have caused and put us back on the road again to achieving a true democracy.

"It's all part of the secular progressive agenda ... to get Christianity and spirituality
and Judaism out of the public square. ... Because if you look at what happened in
Western Europe and Canada, if you can get religion out, then you can pass secular
progressive programs, like legalization of narcotics, euthanasia, abortion at will, gay
marriage."

Fox News host Bill O'Reilly, decrying the purported "War on Christmas" in 2005.
