Who's your news?


Fox news rated accurate 18% of the time. 1   Read some of the outright lies told to people on Fox News. The only one of their talking heads I admit to liking is Bill O'Reilly mostly because he is a bit more honest than most and because he makes it clear when asked that he is NOT a journalist, he is an entertainer.   These "FOX Correspondents" do a great inustice to real news organizations because their whole spiel is right-wing propaganda, not news and seldom based on fact...certainly not fact checked!

What does all this say about FOX personalities?  Which of the following do you think is most true?

  1. They are willfully ignorant of facts
  2. They know they lie but don't care
  3. They have abandon personal ethics for cash
  4. They are stooges for the political right
  5. All of the above.


For example:


"In countries where there are higher, more strict gun laws, there is more gun violence."

FALSE, we lead the world in gun violence except war zones!

~ Politifact


I am not saying all news organizations are pure and accurate all the time but most real news organizations do check facts. There is always a bias even if it is in the decisions of what to report and what to ignore in the news. There are liberal outlets who choose to report news with a positive liberal bias, however I am not familiar with any that resort to outright lies as part of their reporting.

FOX is not a news organization despite it's fancy logo, it is a conservative entertainment platform dedicated to the proliferation of ignorance in support of right wing politics. The fact that the right relies on lies and misinformation says a lot about their integrity...or lack there of.  If a political movement is based on lies and false propaganda it is unworthy of the American people...even those who believe this crap!
