Fox Spews

Fox News’ “virulent paranoid streak, the unending appeals to white resentment, the reporting that’s a political campaign attack ad” comes from a political consultant who repackaged Richard Nixon for television in 1968, stoked racial fears to elect George Bush in 1988, and waged a secret campaign on behalf of Big Tobacco to derail healthcare reform in 1993.

Climate of Deception at Fox News

It has been long known that the name “Fox News” should really be known as “Faux News” because it doesn’t believe in reporting reality. It just makes crap up and spins everything to avoid dealing with reality. This video looks at their performance on climate change.

Several studies have now shown that those who watch Fox News are significantly more misinformed than those who don’t.  Well there’s a surprise!  Not.  Serious question though, can we have both a free media and a requirement for minimum levels of accuracy and balance, or are those options mutually exclusive?

Fox News – driven by conservative bullshit

Rachel Maddow has a look at exactly how much Fox News just makes stuff up and calls it news. It uses selectively edited stories like the ACORN ‘pimp’ story, the ‘climategate’ e-mails, and many other highly inaccurate ‘stories’, and promotes them for ratings.

In effect Fox News is the (un)official spin channel for conservative activists to peddle garbage entertainment on. Have a watch of Rachael as she tears the facade of conservative story telling apart.

Glenn Beck’s theatre of the absurd

Written By: - Date published: 4:53 pm, March 12th, 2010 - 35 comments

Check out this video of Fox News talk host Glenn Beck. It’s a compilation of his week-long series on how “America is burning to the ground”.

I think he’s trying to argue that Barack Obama is plotting some sort of communist-inspired coup, but it’s hard to know what he’s on about between his confused rants about “THE MACHINE” and the paranoid blackboard scrawlings.

The fighting fourth estate

The Herald can be bad, but it’s not yet a patch on Fox News. From The Guardian: “What a bunch of warmongers we have in the White House. America is fighting the war in Iraq, they’re fighting in Afghanistan, Osama Bin Laden, al-Qaida, the Taliban. And now these people have taken on another enemy: Fox […]

From Finsec’s blog, …the gossip: Fox TV is taking television to a new low with a new show with the working title Someone’s Gotta Go. The show will make ‘entertainment’ out of job cuts, with staff being able to vote for who should lose their job. The employees will have access to internal company information […]
