60% of FOX "news" is mostly false to pants on fire lies

Postby jonnygothispen » Fri Jul 11, 2014 6:36 pm

http://www.addictinginfo.org/2014/07/09 ... are-false/

A new analysis by PunditFact found that of every statement made by a Fox News host or guest, over half of them were flat-out false. What’s more, only a measly 8% could be considered completely “true.”

... a fancy review of hundreds of hours of video confirmed what many who watch Fox News with any regularity already know: Fox News lies. A lot. Like all the time.

How do Fox News viewers know less than people who literally don’t know anything about current events? ... Fox viewers thought they were watching informational content – instead they were being lied to under a carefully constructed veneer of responsible journalism. Later, when someone asks them about what’s going on, they feel like they know the answer when they haven’t a clue.
Ouch...

I see your FOX "news" skills are at work again, Sandi. Sometimes things are a little deeper than the birdbath you draw your climate info from, and with better content.

Actually I watched CNN: until many here were bad-mouthing them, then I did start watching FOX.

Really ironic how you can belittle FOX and not a peep about MSNBC which is by far worse than any news network past or present.

... 46 percent of the claims made by NBC and MSNBC pundits and on-air personalities have been rated Mostly False, False or Pants on Fire.

At FOX and Fox News Channel, that same number is 60 percent. At CNN, it’s 18 percent.

If you believe in news studies, I have a few things you might like to buy:

1 can of steam.
Checkerboard paint.
A bridge
Skyhooks

You forgot the best one in your repertoire: climate change denial.
