Why Fox News Is Total Garbage

foxnewsrepublicanI can’t begin to truly convey my disdain for Fox News.  Not just because I disagree with nearly everything they support, but because the channel is pure trash.

To actually call it “news” is laughable, and their tagline “Fair and Balanced” is an even bigger joke.

Now I’m not saying other stations don’t have bias, MSNBC is obviously geared more towards liberals.  But there’s a massive difference between what Fox News does and what MSNBC does.

I’ll be honest, I don’t really watch mainstream news.  I tend to use the internet to research what’s going on rather than have some pundit who relies on ratings telling me what’s supposedly happening.  The only channel I do watch regularly is Fox News, and that’s because I’ve developed a great trick for finding out truth in news.  What I do is take whatever Fox News is currently pushing, research it myself, and in that research I find the truth—which is rarely what I heard from their broadcasts.

But the main difference between MSNBC and Fox News isn’t their bias—like I said, they’re both biased.  The difference is where MSNBC panders news towards liberals, Fox News will simply make stuff up to create a story.  Not that MSNBC hasn’t pushed this line before as well, but this is almost a weekly occurrence on Fox.

A few studies have been done looking at the news channel people watch most, and the amount of factual information these individuals actually knew.   In these studies Fox News viewers are almost always deemed the “most misinformed” of the respondents polled.  Not only are they the most misinformed viewers, they were even more misinformed than those who responded that they don’t watch any news at all.

Basically, if you don’t watch any news at all, you’re more likely to correctly answer simple factual questions about our government and events going on in our nation than if you watched Fox News.

So, what does that mean?  It’s simple.

It shows Fox News distorts the truth so often that watching, and trusting, their “news” actually makes people less informed than if they watched nothing at all.

Now I could give you seemingly countless examples of Fox News pulling stories out of thin air, but I’m just going to use two from last year’s Presidential race to prove my point.

Anyone remember the “You didn’t build that” line by President Obama last summer that sent Republicans into a frenzy?  You should, they built their entire Presidential convention around it.

Conservative media outlets like Fox News jumped all over this line by the President.  They pushed it as the “radical socialist Obama dismissing the hard work of the American business owner.”

Which sounds awful, except for the fact that they took the line completely out of context.  What he was actually talking about was that working together, Americans have achieved great things.  That nobody got anywhere on their own, they had help.  Be it the teacher who influenced them, the parents who raised them or the roads they use to get supplies into their business—nobody gets where they are without help from others.

But the truth didn’t matter once conservatives had their line.  And this wasn’t similar to  the speech recorded of  Mitt Romney detailing his disdain towards 47% of Americans, this was an entire speech which conservatives took 4 words from to create an entirely different meaning.  Which I always found funny.  By that I mean, if Obama is as bad as they claim he is—why did they have to take 4 words from a speech completely out of context to build their entire Presidential convention on?

Then there was the Presidential election itself.  If you watched Fox News, or listened to conservative media personalities, not only were almost every single one of them predicting an easy victory for Romney—they had the nerve to call the overwhelming number of polls that said Obama was going to win with over 300 electoral votes “liberally biased.”

You were hard pressed to find any of these people predicting Obama was headed for a victory.  Knowing how the election turned out, with Obama easily winning with over 300 electoral votes, how could almost every single one of these “experts” have been wrong?  And not just wrong, they were so completely inaccurate that you could have pulled someone off the street and gotten a better prediction for the election than we heard from these supposed “experts.”

But the answer is simple.  It’s because the truth doesn’t matter to them.  After the election results came in, conservative voters were shocked.  Not “fake” shocked, either—they were literally stunned.  How could President Obama have won?  After all, every “news” source they had trusted told them for months that Romney was headed for a fairly easy victory.  But here was reality smacking them in the face—President Obama crushed Mitt Romney.

This is why I call Fox News total garbage.

It isn’t just that they report the side of the story which I happen to disagree with.  It’s that their reporting of “news” is so laughable that to watch (and trust) Fox News means you’re more likely to be misinformed about simple indisputable facts than if you watched no news at all.

Now I’m not saying you have to like ABC, CBS, MSNBC or CNN—I really don’t care whether you do or not.  Like I said, I don’t watch a lot of mainstream news.  But Fox News is on a whole other level when it comes to worthless news coverage.

Because where CNN or MSNBC might sing the praises of how great a blue sky is—Fox News tries to convince you the sky isn’t actually blue.  And millions of people believe it.

    Allen, like you I get most of my news from select sites on the internet and mostly from PBS. Unlike you I can’t stomach watching Faux News so my hat’s off to you to even attempt it if for nothing else but to see what is being pumped out. I was in an office a few years ago and they had it on – I had to work hard to contain myself over the ridiculous bs on there. It isn’t news, it’s a mouth piece for the extreme right – a brain washing session. Nothing but confusion and half witted nonsense, so much so that has the study showed, people who don’t even watch news have a better understanding of events. I also think it caters to the people (I’m not being judgmental, but serious) who have a lower intellect, why else would they even listen without questioning?

    • Cletus

      Even notice, if you’re still in touch with them, that those who you thought weren’t the brightest bulbs when growing up turned out to be the staunchest right-wing Fox viewers? Think about it…

      • James1754

        Listening to liberals attempt to argue intellectually with each other is like listening to small children having a tea party without even water in the tea pot. Entertaining but devoid of any intellectual ‘calories’. Keep it up. You are entertaining.

        I’m not sure why we’d want to argue – liberals have “empathy”. If conservatives knew what it was, there would be ELEVEN commandments!

      • suburbancuurmudgeon

        If conservatives knew what empathy was, they’d outlaw it as a liberal conspiracy.

        Wow, that metaphor makes no sense at all. Good one, brainiac. I thought conservatives didn’t like Liberals because they are “elite” meaning they read books and are aware of things outside their bubble? And yet they are unintelligent. Wowsers.

      The dribble ad the out right lies come from BOTH sides and about all news agencies. None of them are reporting in an unbiased manner – and to make it worse -you have several of them acting as obamas own propaganda machine and protector by NOT reporting on the issues that they SHOULD be -

      • http://www.facebook.com/gdsmithtx Gary D. Smith

        A) the word is “drivel”

        B) What exactly are you referring to regarding issues not being reported? “BENGAZHI!1!1!”?

      • Diana Bauer

        FOX “News” is outraged!! They just “can’t understand why” the rest of the media isn’t covering Benghazi; maybe ‘cos the rest of the media know it’s a non-story, and the other media outlets aren’t out for our President’s head on a spike. Just because they don’t have the same hatred for President Obama that FOX “News” has doesn’t mean that they are his “propaganda machine.” There is no doubt that FOX is only hollering about Benghazi because they have little else with which to try to crucify President Obama. Just about everything else he’s been able to accomplish, despite virulent Republican opposition, has been pretty successful. They are screaming about a fart in the wind.

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Timothy-Roesch/100000685428335 Timothy Roesch

        Or maybe, Diana, people like you at MSNBCABCCBSCNN refuse to investigate the story because they know it will destroy Hilary and Obama. Keep on being ignorant of the truth. Your liberal masters need you ignorant and lazy.

      • RINOVirus

        Bengazi is a bullshit fishing expedition. Four people died there which is tragic. But what is worse is that Republicans lied to us and got THOUSANDS of soldiers killed and still no WMD’s. Where is your fake outrage now?

      • BackSeatJesus

        Exactly.

      • BackSeatJesus

        Or maybe it’s smacks of hypocrisy that none of you titty babies were bitching and moaning when close to 30 embassy workers were killed in various terrorist attacks during the previous administration.

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Zachary-Chastain/1308655925 Zachary Chastain

        Damn straight. This is not some unprecedented event. There were plenty of attacks and deaths under the previous administration. Why is it that this is the one republicans actually care about, Tim?

      • Diana Bauer

        They’ve DONE investigations, and come up with nothing. FOX “News” pulls shit from their asses and presents them as facts. Did’ja know that FOX fought and WON a lawsuit giving them the right to LIE? Their case being that since they aren’t registered with the FCC as a “news” station, (they are classified as “entertanment/satire”) they are under NO obligation to tell the truth. Google it if you don’t believe me. This being the case, please enlighten as to why I should believe a station who is not “news” to give me any kind of substance. You can’t. Your conservative masters need you stupid and AFRAID. It’s the only consistent in their rallying cry: “Be afraid, always be afraid.” Because the fearful are so easily led. Believe lies, if you want to, I can’t FORCE you to be right.

      • Ron G

        What’s strange is why they didn’t go after Bush back when the original 9/11 happened because whether you knew it or not his younger brother was in charge of security for the WTC buildings before the tragedy and from some views of the explosions around many floors below the planes striking it was like programmed detonations all the way around them…they should have gone after them for treason…G.W. was warned months ahead of the attacks and he called it all “bluster”…oh well that’s their slant and it should be called “Anti-Obama News”…period!

      • suburbancuurmudgeon

        And you know the truth, right? Because you listen to FOX? Explain those 3000 people that died on 9/11/01 with a Republican president at the helm. THEN tell me about 4 people in a CIA mission in Benghazi.

      • http://twitter.com/goodfornuthin Ginga Ninja Avenga

        Timothy, you should spend more time looking for whomever stole your chin and less time giving in to your pathological impulse to ineffectively troll your betters. Maybe once you find your chin, you will be a whole, well rounded and pleasant human being, instead of the paranoid delusional little bag of child-molestation-waiting-to-happen that you currently seem to be. Wait, no, you, being a Fox News sycophant must like only easy answers…so instead, please go kill yourself.

Just have to turn on the T.V. and see what kind of shows are “popular” to know exactly what kind of people are out there and watching and I’m sorry but all this “Reality T.V” Shit is off the wall nonsense that just turns people into voyeuristic idiots … “Swamp People” need i explain further?

Even if it is crap. Troll crap. The Republican party is circling the drain, and even if you don’t realize that now, you certainly will in 2016. Maybe even by 2014…..

      • robingee

        Tolerant does not mean putting up with lies, racism, homophobia and bullshit. If someone calls you out on a lie or a bigoted remark it’s not, “Hey you have to be TOLERANT of my ignorant fucktard views!” That’s not how this works.

      • theabby

        I’m tolerant, but not tolerant of liars, fear mongers and outright hate baiters. I don’t tolerate rude news “anchors” who shout their opinions over the heads of their guests simply because they disagree. I don’t tolerate the lack of apologies or remorse when they get a story wrong. I don’t tolerate the snarky, condescending tones taken by the reporters who pretend their stories are “fair and balanced”.

I watch all and check out all that is said and I dvr all, print out all that is said in print, work on it 12 to 14 hrs a day and have 5 boxes of material. I am writing a book and in it I will have what repugs said/what Fox said/what CNN/Msnbc said and what is the truth according to fact checkers & politico and therein lies the truth and that will be what my book will be about. I am waiting til Obama’s term is over. If everyone did that, they would be shocked at what lying, haters, hypocrites Fox news really truly is. The worst of the worst and it is very heart breaking and sad and hurtful to me. Repugs are bill killers of all that is good for us only because it has the Obama name attached. fox is also a bigot, a damned station & may god have mercy on their souls. It is a shame what some people will do for money. some day it will dawn on you. I hope that will be soon. god bless and keep you safe and privy of the truth. amen.

  • Jeff Kurtti

    Two things: a key difference between Fox and MSNBC is the word “news.” MSNBC does not call their network a “news” channel. It is clearly identified as “current events and opinion,” with news “updates” and “breaking news.” As far as bias, please document where in reporting NEWS, MSNBC has “pushed this line before” in “making things up to create a story.”

        This liberal hippy/biker type says they are correct about his Forged Birth Certificate. A child can see the errors of what would have been an error free copy if it was actually scanned from one piece of paper. I wonder why the focus is on his ‘Middle’ name rather than his First name. Oh yeah the wonder is gone,,, the hidden master behind the programming doesn’t want to focus on his first name.

        What I love is the idea that a bunch of jihadists picked a black kid with a Muslim name, without any political ties, without a big money background to–what?—brainwash? So that he could later become the POTUS and destroy America? Pretty iffy plan, jihadists! Fifty years ago, no one would have thought a black man could ever get into the White House except as a servant, much less a middle class kid with no family background in politics. Now, me, I’d pick a kid from a rich family, with plenty of political backing…a rather stupid kid, but vain, so he could be easily manipulated. And with money in the family. Big money! White, of course. Make that guy president and with the right kind of handlers, he could do a lot of damage. Maybe even start a war or two Wait a minute….am I on to something?

      • meatwad_SSuppet

        Both an inside-out job. It could not have happened without the zionNazis goals in mind. The names of the perpetrators are known to those that have looked deeply into it, like Larry ‘pull IT’ Silverstein et al. The reason to lease the entire property? To get the public demand for accountability out of the public’s legal hand.

      • Meh

        Even if 9/11 was an inside job, which it wasn’t, that would not change a little detail you’ve overlooked: the attack was carried out during the Bush administration, which would mean it was the grand design of Bush and his Republican backers, not Obama and the Democrats.

        I don’t understand why people blame Obama for the economy and lack of jobs. By Wall Street standards, the economy is doing well. Productivity is up, but at the expense of people who actually do the work. Corporate America squeezes more work out of fewer people for less money. Jobs go to China and Vietnam.

        If you think the Republicans are interested in creating jobs, you are delusional. Their idea of full employment is everyone working for $3/hr. Or $3/day. Doesn’t matter to them.

    Why is it that everyone always compares MSNBC to Fox? Has anyone really ever watched some of the shows on MSNBC? A lot of it is not GEARED towards the LIBERALS. There’s Joe Scarborough in the morning, and Chris Matthews (who was a republican growing up) who constantly quotes Rush Limbaugh, and Bill O’Reilly. Would the producers at FOX ever have a LIB on their shows and defend anything they say? I think not!

    • Long Beach

      Yes, FOX News would do that, they have several Liberals in their program line up. Bill O’Reilly has people on every night that oppose his views, EVERY NIGHT. Sean Hannity has a panel every night with people that oppose him. MSNBC hardly every does that.

        I frequently see Republicans on MSNBC; usually the moderate ones, because the more extreme teapartiers will ONLY go on FOX. With the exception of Chris Matthews, who tends to talk over EVERYONE, every Republican I’ve seen interviewed on MSNBC was treated respectfully. Not so for any unfortunate Democrats who tread into FOX territory; lefties on FOX are shouted down, and in O’Reilly’s case, their mics are actually turned off when O’Reilly realizes that he’s losing the argument.

It’s like you already know, that they’re gna try and turn it into something negative.. It’s just so funny, and what’s sad is that people believe it.. But i always read your articles and it makes me happy that you write about exactly what i think of,, looking in from outside.

    Yesterday I watched A panel of Fox News spokespeople spend an hour repeating each other while criticizing former Secretary of State, Hilary Clinton and President Obama for how they handled the enemy attack on our Diplomatic Outpost in Benghazi. They repeated over and over again about the failure to authorize a last minute rescue mission and the attempted cover up of the truth about what motivated the enemy to launch the attack. At no time did any of the panel members mention the fact that the Republican members of Congress voted down the Secretary of State’s requests for addition security funding for our Diplomatic locations in the Middle East for the three years prior to the attack. This is why people are finding what’s said on Fox News harder and harder to believe.

    • Long Beach

      FOX News is covering it so much because none of the others really are and its a big story. If the others New orgs want to then they can report the story and mention the Republicans involvement which will make FOX do it.

        The only story here is that it’s tragic that these people lost their lives. Interesting that Fox doesn’t mention that republicans voted down requests for more defense funding for this and other locations before the attacks. Clearly, our President is to blame for these men not being protected.

        Diana is absolutely right. Posing statements they pulled out of their asses as questions and sitting around debating about how this is all our President’s fault isn’t coverage or investigative journalism. It’s bullshit.

I don’t love FOX News by any means but it is the ONLY News org that has a right leaning POV, the liberals have MSNBC, CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS, PBS and every f**king newspaper in the country!!! Not everybody see’s things through a liberal perspective!! The Conservatives can’t have ONE, NOT ONE news channel to watch?!! That’s just way too much, that’s tipping the balance scales? Look at it like this, if the other news orgs weren’t so biased, FOX News wouldn’t need to exist!

      you miss the point Long Beach. Fox makes up stuff. Fox invents scandal after scandal trying to get Obama and the democrats. Nobody cares that they are conservative, but for them to say they are fair and balanced is absolute BS. MSNBC doesn’t say they are fair and balanced. They freely admit they lean left. Right now they are pushing this Benghazi crap, where so far, I have not really heard anything that’s not been said before. Fox bullied the republicans in congress to investigate Solyndra and Fast and Furious and yet when all was said and done, Obama is still POTUS and congress found no laws violated. Anyone who thinks Benghazi will be any different watches to much Faux.

I don’t expect you to change, you will always be on the dark side because that’s where you want to live, you love the hate mongering that you hear and feel that you need to spew it out so that you can make room for more.

      I happen to disagree with the above, but I’m going to query your last sentence. Many of the so-called “conservative” politicians in this country claim to be Christians. The Christian teachings, whether or not you happen to believe he was the Messiah, and whether or not you believe in God, fundamentally come down to loving your neighbour, supporting them, and not judging others. If you look at what Jesus actually taught as a whole (rather than selective quoting sentences), then the closest modern philosophy is Socialism. Jesus’ teachings suggest taking money out of churches, that justice is not retribution, that one should love thy neighbour and feed him and clothe him – all things that seem anathema to modern conservatism, which is mostly about selfishness, and more recently about war.

      If liberals are the ones that “can’t put two thoughts together competently”, then how do you explain the apparent hypocrisy above, because as I see it, it’s these “Christian Conservatives” who manage to have a complete cognitive dissonance somewhere (suggesting that they can’t, in fact, put two thoughts together competently).

The sky is blue based on absorption and re-emission scattering of high frequencies of light (mostly because they’re high energy photons). The sun then appears redder than it actually is as a result of these frequencies being scattered more.

    Well, first off, Fox called the election wrong because the massive fraud Karl Rove was expected to pull off didn’t happen..

    Actually, my real “first’ issue – “this is almost a weekly occurrence on Fox.”? I have to assume you only watch once a week. As far as i can tell, more Fox “News” is fabricated by Chinese workers in $0.30/day sweatshops owned by Bain Capital,

    Racism in USA persists and does so in a cruel and sick.Today, watching MS NBC, heard the story of how over the Internet, there are many people who mock modesty of African American kidnapped the three women in Ohio.

    They laughed because here the hero, not a “blonde Philadelphia.” Because besides being a black man is poor …, made ​​fun of his teeth saying “… where is the tooth”

    No such association because expontanea, I came to mind once FOX.Maybe so son.But false and vile, worst: Besides that, for the high rating you have … THAT’S WHAT WORRY.THAT EXIST BUT ONLY THAT HAVE FANS ..!

    And I knew then that my aforementioned association between FOX and RACISM was, perhaps, because I suspect that FOX viewers and RACIST today commented insult the hero of rrecate, ARE THE SAME!

    To me, the difference is Fox states it is a news station. MSNBC calls itself ‘The place for politics’. Big difference

    Everyone is entitled to their opinion. You must watch Fox quite a bit to form this opinion. I agree with one thing……all of the channels are biased and don’t think that you and I are not either. We all lean one way or another or many! Cite some more examples of …’Fox News will simply make stuff up to create a story. Not that MSNBC hasn’t pushed this line before as well, but this is almost a weekly occurrence on Fox.”

  • Marshall

    We, Conservatives, didn’t take anything out of context. The left thinks the world revolves around government, whereas, we tend to believe in individual liberty and accountability. obama is convinced that nobody can accomplish a thing without his beloved government. Everybody claims not to watch Fox, and yet they clean house every month. If its so bad stop watching it. I noticed that this piece was done by a person, who appears on current tv. That explains a lot because 5 people actually watch that channel.

    FOX is GOP TV … it is dedicated to supporting the Republican corporate 1% agenda and will never engage in actual journalism. It’s a giant distraction and blame machine that functions to damage Democrats, Liberals, the left and keep the rigged financial in place and keep the legal system focussed on the working class so the Wall Street and corporate criminals never face justice.

    There is no doubt that Obama is guilty…guilty of actually following the recommendations of of the republicans to cut partial funding for Embassy security…. I just love this quote.

    When you’re in tough economic times, you have to make difficult choices. You have to prioritize things,” Chaffetz added, “But for Christ’s sake, we’re the GOP. To listen to our advice or enact the legislation we pass is ludicrous. It’s as if Obama wants the terrorists to win.”

    Too bad in our country we don’t have laws that require our news to be true, factual and non biased.

      Good point – did you know that some 40 people died in Baghdad on the same day as the Boston Marathon bomb killed 4, due to a pair of car bombs. I didn’t see it reported on a *single* news station here. Not one. They were too busy with the wall-to-wall coverage trying to find a story of “we know nothing yet, the police have told us nothing yet, there’s nothing to report, but we’ll keep showing you the same images while we try and find out what the real story is”.

      The news in this country, honestly, is an absolute farce. CNN (as pointed out by certain “comedy” news sources) doesn’t even have an investigative journalism department anymore. MSNBC is mostly OK, if you don’t care what’s going on outside America, but they also fall victim to the wall-to-wall coverage of one story with no real developments, but lots of interviews of people who don’t know anything, when there’s a big disaster, and as mentioned above, they get this pass by being “current events and updates” rather than “news”. Fox, as some have said, should not even be remotely regarded as a “news” station. It’s effectively propagandatainment or some such.

      The reality is that pretty much all the politicians are corrupt, due to the legalised bribery that is the “lobbying” process, Eric Cantor is a waste of space and oxygen, and John Boehner not much better. You have a bunch of disgraceful politicians on both sides, I’m probably better at naming the “right” (put in quotes because it should be “far-right”); Louie Gohmert, Lindsay Graham, Ted Cruz, Jeff Flake, Paul Broun, Michele Bachmann, Mitch McConnell and with the recent return of Mark Sanford. Not to mention all the ones that got voted out (finally); Richard Murdock, Todd Akin, Allen West. And on the other side, who can ever know what goes through the apparent air between Harry Reid’s ears. Obama is not a socialist President. If he were, he’d be considered a pretty awful socialist. I’d love it if he were a bit more so, because that aligns with my politics – I believe in paying higher taxes for a greater return to society, and I think society is about not leaving the weak behind.

      Now, how many of those of you commenting on this on the right (Timothy Roesch, I’m looking at you) think that what the politicians are taking for their work is disgusting (not to mention their free-for-life healthcare), considering that this and the last Congress are regarded as the “do-nothing Congress”? And how many of you had forgotten (both on the right and the left) that the original healthcare plan was an actual plan for real socialised medicine and reform of the scam-infested joke that is healthcare in America, but that the ACA as it stands (mostly) and the individual mandate (entirely) was really a Republican idea, and one that they wanted.

    Imagine a workplace where you distort the truth or outright lie all the time – and your management & co-workers accept what you say. Eventually, you’d be fired or your area of work would be in serious trouble.

    Imagine you’re head of the household and you lie to your family all the time. Eventually they would shun you – or throw you out.

    That’s FOX News. I hope their base is eroding such that eventually they’re fired or disowned.

  • alphadeus

    This is a company that dwells on fear mongering, if we want background checks they say we’re going to seize every weapon from a butter knife upwards, we talk about life choices in healthcare and they talk about death panels, we talk about Obamas trip to Asia, they say he’s spending $1B a day.

    .

    They make things up to such a point that they have to go to court to ask for the right to lie, say that everyone is mistaking their commentary from their news…which is quite easy as they don’t do it either.

    .

    Fox has shown edited and even totally different videos to ‘prove’ its point like anti war protesters becoming glen beck rally followers, violence in California for violence in Wisconsin, taking away facts of Obama quoting McCain and then saying Obama said it then doing the exact same thing for biden quoting McCain, even McCain said what they said was terrible and he was the one who said it.

    Allen your personal liberal agenda has blinded you from the truth. It is more accurate to say CBS, MSNBS and ABC idolize Fox News. To understand how that could be we must start at the beginning, back when all those broadcast companies sought to modify their contract with the FCC. It was 1970 or 71 and they all collectively decided that they would honor their obligation to perform emergency broadcast warnings and report the news. But with one nation destroying change. The news depart would no longer be carried as an expected loss as it always was in the days of Walter Cronkite.They would report the news but from now on the newsroom would be expected to make a profit just like all the other depart’s of the company. Go ahead and tell your 5 O’clock story but do it in such a way that it makes people tune in and sponsors will want to buy the time slots. ALL of them started wielding fear and anger as a marketing tool and ALL of their newsrooms were well into the black.

    And then along comes Fox and shows them just how far it is possible to take the concept of reiterating commonly held misconceptions. Fox showed them that ungodly profits of a billion a year were possible. As quickly as they possibly could ABC, CBS and MSNBC copied the proven Fox format and took up the liberal position of describing the other side of the same coin. All of them doing the exact same thing; all of them with happy shareholders and windfall profits. And none of it is truth. None of it is journalism. Allen Clifton is perfectly capable of seeing these obvious transitions but his own liberal agenda has robbed him of any kind of objectivity. He’s now so emotionally invested that without even being consciously aware of it he instinctively exaggerates republican mistakes and helps minimize, hide and misdirect when democrats make the same mistakes. In other words he’s useless to us as a reporter.

    “I could give you seemingly countless examples of Fox News pulling stories out of thin air[.]”

    I wish you had. Instead, we were provided with zero actual information or examples. Where you tried to “prove [your] point,” you did nothing of the sort. Have you watched it in context? He says “if you were successful, you didn’t get that on your own.” How could that be taken any other way? Does every business owner owe homage to the barista that makes their coffee? Yes, roads, schools, and protection are in place, and for those things business owners pay for more than others…

    I wish people would start backing up their statements with solid examples. Sadly enough, this will always be merely a wish.

    • Cletus

      Here’s a solid example – yes, businesses do pay a substantial amount into a community’s’ tax base. What Obama was arguing against was republicxxs and the right wing propaganda machine’s desire to see them and the wealthy pay less and less until government is starved to death.

      Remember when Grover Norquist said he wanted to see government shrunk so small that it could be drowned in the bathtub? Bet you don’t because they don’t like to push that truth on Fox. It was against that backdrop that Obama wanted to remind business owners that they can’t expect the services that helped them get where they are unless they’re willing to make their fair contribution.

  • Edna Jackson Barefoot

    I HAVE LISTENED TO FOX & MSMBC. I DON’T KNOW YOU BUT YOU ARE JUST AS NUTS AS OTHER POLITICAL PUSHERS. YOU PRINT AS MUCH BULL AS ANYONE ELSE & NO I AM NOT A REP. I LISTEN TO ALL SIDES & DECISE FOR MYSELF. I DON’T NEED PEOPLE LIKE YOU TELLING ME WHAT IS TRUE OR NOT. ALL THIS ARTICLE DOES IS SAY WHAT YOU BELIEVE. GLAD I HAVE MY OWN MIND.

  • Cletus

    To refine two points you make:

    When people post or say to me “Well, Fox is the most watched cable news channel ever” (as if that means something) I used to say “Yeah, for the same reason people slow down at an accident scene”. But that felt empty, until I realized the real reason is, if you’re not constrained by the truth, and are gonna just make shit up as you go along, it’s not hard to get people to watch. The same goes for right-wing hate radio. Truth is a hard sell.

    And, if you want a condensed version of the lying and misinformation pushed in the previous week, all you have to do is watch “Fox News Watch”, and wa-la, you’re back up to speed.

    Even more disingenuous is when Fox says, “We’ll report, you decide” Like when Obama received his first nomination, and he and Michelle did a “fist bump” on the podium. The Fox “reporter”, and headline, asked if it was a terrorist gesture. Their editors probably didn’t realize that less than a minute earlier, showing our soldiers passing each other coming and going to battle in Iraq, they were doing the fist bump

  • Norseman75

    Is the Fox News Cable station licensed by the FCC? If they are, why isn’t their licensed being pulled by the amount of lies they tell….it’s one thing to be biased by one side or the other …but don’t the facts still have to be the same??? Facts are facts correct? So why does Fox News get away with telling so so many mistruths…everyone I talk to that are fervent fox news followers state they are so therefore they’re telling the truth…..confused…

    I think the difference between Fox and MSNBC is that MSNBC is the first to admit their bias. In fact, I think they’ve said in the past that their very existence is to present the opposing view to Fox. Faux news would rather have you believe that they don’t have a bias. (Bill O’Reilly still claims he’s an independent!). And of course the Fair and Balanced trademark. LOL!

    Fox News reports the news with an unbiased approach. There’s a difference between the news programs and the opinion programs. It’s uproarious when you say MSNBC “is geared” towards Liberals. They’re so far left they make decent Democrats look like right wing loonies. Fox News is the highest rated news organization in the country. They out poll every single network unless you add together the three that comprise the President’s Propaganda Network…..ABC, CBS, and NBC.

    You Liberals are a joke. Your assault on The Constitution, and on morality, is both disheartening and disgusting. You scream one thing and do the opposite. Liberals need to be renamed Hypocrites.

    I wasn’t even interested in politics when I was watching Fox News several years ago and I started noticing that they either left out a lot or what they were saying didn’t match what other news articles I was reading so I started doing research on what they would report and I found out this supposed news station was mostly all lies. It isn’t news, it is a mouth piece for republicans. I also checked on that charity Hannity was running for awhile to help veterans and found it is really wasn’t a charity for vets, but for wealthy people to fly around, spending time with bands and partying. Out of the hundreds of thousands or millions he took in, only a very minute amount went to the veterans. Say he took in a 100,000, that meant maybe a thousand would go toward helping a vet. He was a scam artist just like they all are on Fox.

    Our most precious freedom is the first amendment right to free speech. We recognize people have vehement disagreements. For millions of sensible educated Americans however, (Fox Lose), is nothing short of an “abomination”, a word normally used in a theological context, it demonstrates the extreme nature of their depraved utterances.
    No progressive would dream of depriving anyone of their right to speak as they choose. That’s because progressives have most frequently been the victims of censorship, and repression by right wing fascists, who do not hesitate to silence their critics at any opportunity. In fact silencing their critics by any means necessary has always been the credo of the right wing Republicans, authoritarians a la Richard Nixon, and extreme fascists like Mussolini. There are many groups of thugs in the United States that from time to time become the vague equivalent of Mussolini’s (black shirts). There’s crazed right wing sheriffs departments carving out their private territories of excessive intimidation, as we see in Arizona, and other States. Even the NYPD has demonstrated it’s capacity to stomp on the first amendment. There’s private security forces spying on American citizens all the time, hacking their computers to destroy data. They degrade our communications in order to gain political advantage, or disguise criminal activity, of individuals in power, or corporations cooking the books.
    We “are”, guaranteed the right to speak as we chose, but as with every action, and choice in life, there can be some very harsh consequences for what we say. Certain types of speech, very narrowly defined, for good reason, are not protected speech. Any constitutional scholar will tell you, that (inciting riot,) and (diversionary speech) used to obstruct justice, conceal evidence, or shield on going criminal activity is most certainly not protected. Speech meant to divert attention for the purpose of aiding and abetting criminal acts, is not protected. The actions, programing decisions, and speech of (Fox Lose), and others by the way, is so despicable, so destructive, so divisive, so premeditated in their blatant attempts to cover up the daily crimes of their financiers, benefactors, and congressional allies, that they amount to obstruction of justice, and inciting riot, on a mass scale. They must ,and will one day, face serious charges for attempting to aid, and abet criminal enterprises seeking to violate the (Voting Rights Act) a federal law, the (Civil Rights Act ), the (Clean Water Act). There’s a long list of other blatant attempts to destroy evidence, cover up the commission of federal crimes. They have long engaged in a carefully constructed, premeditated program of blatant fraud, and propaganda to aid, and abet the Right wing lunatic fringe fascists, inside congress, and in board rooms, and think tanks across the country. They have engaged in a carefully orchestrated campaign of hostile acts against the American citizenry, by willfully, wantonly, creating a massive facade of false reporting, distortion, obfuscation, subterfuge, and I would say (sedition) a very serious crime indeed. This facade of lies, and vicious race baiting, wanton fraudulent reporting, and coverup, constitutes in, and of itself, a criminal enterprise in the view of millions. it’s clear intent is to override the expressed will of the citizenry. They have knowingly participated in an open blatant attempt at coup de” tat in the US. They have knowingly, and willfully provided a 24 / 7 campaign of hostile propaganda to defraud the American people, and created the conditions for the invasion of Iraq that cost us $3.5 trillion dollars so far, and is now set to embroil us again in the utter madness of sectarian war. They willfully concealed evidence that allowed their friends,and allies to evade taxes, and defraud the taxpayer during the war, and even today. They have created the conditions for, and incited both political, and armed groups to commit violent acts, against Americans citizens, and duly authorized agents of the United Staes Government. The justice department has grievously failed in it’s duty to seek prosecutions of individuals within the organization who have knowingly and deliberately conspired to violate our constitution, and bring serious economic damage, and grievous bodily harm to American citizens. This condition represents language, and speech that is a clear affront to the constitution, and civilized behavior. They must pay a heavy price for their treasonous hostile dangerous acts. Their activities have, by any reasonable standard, brought grievous harm to the United States, and have set the stage for a fascist take over of the American Democratic Republic. Wake up people! We are under attack from within.
