here's more proof to ignore about the Faux News network, righties.

    Time and time again proof of the lies spread by the Faux News netwotk surface and are dismissed as lies by those who base their life and votes on lies. This wont change the mind of a Faux News robot but I am looking forward to hearing how and why a former Faux News employee is lying. Remember that before you can claim something is a lie you first must know the truth. If you regularly watch the Faux News Comedy hour, you have no idea what truth actually is.

    Welcome to the Unitede Soviet States of America you are working so hard to bring out of the closet. Yes folks, repubs can be found in any number of closets these days.

      That's a great link. Faux News is worse than I realized, (and that's pretty bad).

        wow, an unnamed source such amazingly potent proof!!!!

          It has a ring of truth. Fox is a despicable organization from from Murdoch and Ailes on down.

            And a lack of courage and integrity.  An anonymous source is not a source any more than a rumor is a fact.

          It works for the faux news comedy hour doesn't it? This is not the first time this charge has been levied against faux news. There are numerous examples of how the faux news/repub propoganda machine regularly broadcasts political spin or out right lies. How do you explain that when faux news viewers are tested on current affairs against people who dont watch faux news, they consistantly provide faux news answers that are incorrect? Faux news fought for the right to lies to it's viewers in a Florida  court and won. Their lawyers stood up in court and admitted that faux news knew some of the stories were lies but that their right to free speech gave them the right to broadcast anything they choose to.

          Seems if one can't tell nonsense by the faux news network, there is left something to be desired. The fact that this one link is an unamed source indicates that everything else written about faux news is also a lie in your opinion, correct?
          I was under the impression that unprovable sources are the cornerstone of the right's entire existence. Cant prove a thing about the bible and yet it's regarded as gospel, pun intended. You should be jumping for joy at finding another unnamed source to worship. Are you trying to tell me that faux news actually broadcasts nothing but the truth, so help me god?

            I am so glad you know what I think and believe better than I do.  I think I have seen five minutes of fox news in the last week perhaps an hour in the last month.  I have watched more CNBC than any other of the news channels.

    Does this make you feel better now

    Here is another example of the hundreds of documeted examples of how the faux news network is nothing more than a mouthpiece for the repubs for the faux news righties to ignore about the Faux News network.

    If the faux news network was fair and balanced wouldn't they have a couple of 2012 democratic presidential hopefuls on their payroll? Must be a little hard to find one that will lie everytime they open their mouth.

      Good example. I've got that one myself. Of course those who have watched long enough will know in their heart that it is all lies. Bill O Lielly told them so.

    Actually all big media in the US is
    Faux. Fox is just completely blatant and
    doesn't pretend to be neutral.

    1. lovemychris profile image78
      lovemychrisposted 5 years ago in reply to this

      Exactly. That's why this myth about a "liberal" media is just that---a myth.

      We have one now, with MSNBC......SOME of the time.

      kno, I agree and all the major networks supported fox's efforts in court to legalize lying to their viewers. What galls me is the lack of intelliegence that is required to believe that faux news is the only one telling the truth. They know this because the faux news network tells them what they want to hear.

      Say something derogatory about the enemy and all good soldiers in Faux news's army of idiots will cheer and spread the lies.

      I believe that before too long the faux news network will gain a spot at the top of the federal list of dangerous cults operating in America. They certainly have proven how good they are at brainwashing. You must realize of course that a brain the size of a walnut is really, really, easy to wash.

    I don't suppose the FCC could yank their license or insist they change their name? Surely there should be some across the board standards for calling yourself a "news" channel...

    Meanwhile, Murdoch and Ailles have ways of finding out who the leak is. And they have ways of punishing whistleblowers, I'm sure. This unnamed source is likely on his/her way to being the next execution story who got what s/he deserved....

      More than likely to share a cell with Manning. 

      I dont believe the FCC can do anything about truth in journalism.  they actually do have the right to lie to the American people.

      There are laws about truth in advertising that should apply as Faux news is nothing more than an ad agency for the right. The fact that they fear and hide from the truth so much should tell you the quality of the product they are shilling for.

    My favorite: "You could never error on the side of not being intolerant enough.”

    Of course anyone with a brain can see what they do.  We all know it, and we all know that the people who deny it are lying through their teeth, hopelessly indoctrinated, or just too clueless to see it.

    The funny thing is how many of them claim to never watch it, but they jump to defend it anyway.

    But that's the far Right, twist, deny, lie, because the Greater Cause excuses anything.

      Pc, I know what you mean about the denials od watching and how every word out of the persons mouth is a verbatim regurgetation of the last faux news show.

    I find it absolutely fascinating -- in a gory train-wreck kind of way.
    I wouldn't last one day there! I cannot even imagine being told to spin stories based on intolerance.
    I cannot imagine being able to look myself in the mirror if I made up lies and broadcast them to millions of people.

    Pcunix,
    Of course anyone with a brain can see what they do. I suspect that some (not sure if I'd go so far as to say "most") viewers recognize that the Fox opinion programs are not "news."
    But do they recognize that the news itself is being so deliberately slanted to annihalate Democrats? That's really scary.

    Also concerning is the amount of money Fox employees were able to donate to political candidates. Keith Obermann got it trouble for that!

    Wow, an UNNAMED, FORMER Fox employee....that alone should tell you something.

    The fact that they are running to Media Matters, a decidedly leftist site, should tell you something else.

    If you're looking for "proof" about something untoward about Fox News, I suggest you move along, definitely nothing to see here....

        Yeah, and I'm sure you'd be willing to watch Ben Stein's EXPELLED or HILLARY: THE MOVIE to educate yourself on other issues, right?

        No thanks....

    If you have decided how you feel about the revolution in Egypt, watch this clip which condenses the positions of commentators on Fox and compares it to the positions of Presidents Obama and Bush.
