Why Should Fox News Be Allowed To Lie To Us?


When ex-Fox News host Glen Beck said this - "This president I think has exposed himself over and over again as a guy who has a deep-seated hatred for white people or the white culture....I'm not saying he doesn't like white people, I'm saying he has a problem. This guy is, I believe, a racist." - it sparked an advertiser exodus from his show in 2009.

But even though it's been proven that Fox NEWS lies most all of the time, we still allow them to exist!


"Fact-Checking Site Finds Fox News Only Tells the Truth 18 Percent of the Time."



"For liberals, it’s not exactly “breaking news” to find out that Fox News is mostly comprised of misinformation or flat-out lies.  Anyone with even a shred of common sense can watch just a handful of their featured shows and see that the entire channel is nothing more than a propaganda mechanism for the Republican party.

"Punditfact, a branch of Politifact, has put together profiles for CNN, MSNBC and Fox News detailing just how honest each of these networks are.  And while it’s obviously not a completely comprehensive profile (it would be nearly impossible to fact check every single thing said on each network) it’s a decent measure of the honesty of each. And what do you know, Pundifact found Fox News to have only told the truth 18 percent (15 of 83) of the time for the statements they checked.  And even of that 18 percent, only 8 percent of what they said was completely “True.”  The other 10 percent was rated as “Mostly True.” A staggering 60 percent (50 of 83) comments were found to be either “Mostly False,” “False,” or “Pants on Fire.” The other 22 percent were rated “Half True.” Essentially well over half of what 

"Punditfact has fact-checked on Fox News has been a lie and only 18 percent has been deemed factual. (See more at: http://www.forwardprogressives.com/fact-checking-site-finds-fox-news-tells-truth-18-percent-time/#sthash.IocwXw9P.dpuf)

Fox even tried to report on "media bias" to their foolish audience...

"Comic Relief: Fox News Runs Laughably Biased Report On Media Bias."

Fox News

"Reminiscing about the year gone by is a favorite pastime of media outlets as the calendar turns the page to a new year. At the top of everyone’s list are lists – generally assembling the best or worst of some category of events. And Fox News is no different as they try to capture those things that resonated for the nation, or at least for their viewers.


"However, being so devoted to misinforming their audience as they are, Fox couldn’t help themselves as they demonstrated an Olympian mastery of self-delusion and unintentional comedy. They chose for their topic a collection of what they called “The Worst of the Worst: Ranking the Most Bias (sic) Reporting of 2014″

By "foolish," we mean incredibly stupid - but white...



...and by "incredibly stupid," we mean "practically comatose."



Here is the problem...



And the problem was known to exist thousands of years ago too...



...so here is how it looks today in the U.S.



Although they don't fool anyone in more enlightened countries...



Oh, and here is their audience...



...and here is a group of people Fox hates.



So let's call Fox News what it really is...



...and what it is can only be described as "criminal."



We don't allow anyone to yell "fire" in a crowded theater, nor do we allow heroin dealers to push drugs on our campuses...yet Faux News is allowed to broadcast their lies to us 24/7 ON OUR AIRWAVES...it's time to shut them down or rename them the GOP Marching Orders.



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

As a Roger Ailes invention, Fox News has proceeded along its merry way to misinform and turn fear into hate.

If they seriously want to be a news organization, they should report - not distort.

If they seriously want to be a propaganda tool, then their name should reflect that fact.

Or we can deal with them when Conservatism is finally abolished. (by Joyce, Jnr.)

"Halloween is a liberal holiday because we're teaching our children to beg for
something for free. … We're teaching kids to knock on other people's doors and
ask for a handout."

Fox News host Sean Hannity (October 31, 2007).
