‘Pants On Fire’: Analysis Shows 60% Of Fox News ‘Facts’ Are Really Lies

Fox News leads the major TV networks in broadcasting lies, but that doesn’t mean CNN or MSNBC are far behind.

    MINNEAPOLIS — Analysis of Fox News suggests that the TV news network is a leader in lying to the American public, beating out CNN and MSNBC for the amount of falsehoods broadcasted.

    The analysis comes from Punditfact, a partnership between the Tampa Bay Times and Politifact.com, which maintains scorecards on the accuracy of major TV news networks. As of January, about 60 percent of facts reported by Fox News were false.

    Criticizing the accuracy of Fox News is not a new pursuit — comedians like Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert built substantial portions of their career out of spotlighting the network’s lies and misdirection. Stewart is so well-known as an opponent that he made headlines in March for admitting Fox had actually been correct in one, specific instance.

    Fox News’ falsehoods gained particular notoriety in the wake of Islamic-extremist terrorist attacks in Europe earlier this year, when Fox began claiming that neighborhoods and even entire cities were off-limits to non-Muslims. Fans of Fox continue to repeat the claim, even though it’s been debunked by everyone from local residents of these regions to British Prime Minister David Cameron. The controversy gave rise to the Twitter hashtag #foxnewsfacts, which is still popular today.

    Fox News’ penchant for inaccuracy has give rise to popular urban legends, debunked by Snopes.com, suggesting that Fox won the right to lie in court — a claim based on a court case that involved a local Fox affiliate — and that the network was banned in Canada for lying.

    Punditfact divides Fox’s on-air falsehoods into categories, from claims that are mostly false (21 percent), those that were completely false (31 percent), and the most blatant lies, which are termed “Pants On Fire” (9 percent).

    But Fox News is not the only network blurring the lines between fact and fiction. A combined scorecard for MSNBC and NBC shows that Punditfact found 44 percent of the news broadcast by those networks was at least “mostly false” or worse. CNN got the best grades on their scorecard, with 80 percent of their reports deemed at least “half true.”

    Punditfact began maintaining these scorecards in 2014, and their January analysis shows that MSNBC and CNN are improving their truthfulness score with time. Fox, however, is not improving — in fact, it’s getting worse.

    Punditfact warns that these scorecards are based only on analysis of selected claims, not a statistically accurate survey: “We use our news judgment to pick the facts we’re going to check, so we certainly don’t fact-check everything. And we don’t fact-check the five network groups evenly.”

    Even so, the Punditfact score cards show that while it is a myth that courts upheld Fox News’ right to lie, it can hardly be considered a reliable news outfit. Despite this fact, Fox routinely ranks as the top TV news network in terms of viewership, based on Nielsen statistics, causing irreparable harm to public perception of events.

    In March, Jon Stewart compared this effect to blindness caused by a solar eclipse.

    “It’s recommended you only watch Fox through a tiny pinhole poked in a piece of cardboard,” quipped Stewart. “You can’t look directly at Fox. It will indelibly burn your soul!”

      Even Fox News can’t except the fact that Trump is so far ahead in the Election, all of this is BS.
      They are looking for ratings. If they declare it over , which we all know Trump in a
      blowout then no money no ratings…..Well could be rigged, do your own survey sampling, but it’s
      only 7 out of 10 for Trump

      You acknowledge you don’t check the networks evenly, therefore the statistics you give are invalid. What rubbish.

      • Bruce Charles

        If you bothered to actually go read the article they quoted you would see that they are acknowledging that they did not “fact check the five news networks evenly” because CBS doesn’t really actually have a news station equivalent. They did not weigh heavily into ABC either.

        • James Tidwell

    • Facts are these. In order to reach a proper conclusion on anything heard or seen in media, it’s to your advantage to check as many sources as possible and then form a conclusion from the best possible sources at your disposal. Factcheck.org is a good place to start. Politifact.com. It doesn’t take a lot of work to get reliable sources. You can forget the networks. NPR is generally fair enough. But like I said, cross check the references. If you have a brain larger than a walnut, you should be able to sort things out.

          They won’t bother to read it because they don’t want to know the truth. Politifact.com has won a Pulitzer prize for their research and reporting of facts. They are neither left or right. If a person takes time to go there they can look up all the people who have been fact checked including Clinton, Obama, Trump and many others. There are detailed explanations for each fact check.

      Is FOX news bias in their reporting? Absolutely. But why do so many crap in their diapers about FOX while blinding ignoring the obvious liberal bias of the others?

      • Because Fox has edified the lie to the status of truth. They are in uncharted territory for the sheer number of lies they report on a daily basis. Although it is now amusing seeing them try to hammer Trump to little success. A Republican! Unthinkable just months ago.

        • brerol

          Oh please. Most if not all do it. FOX is just one of the very few that do it with a conservative bent. Once again we see someone crapping in their diapers about FOX while blindly ignoring the obvious liberal bias of most of the rest.

          • You seem to be mistaking me for someone who gives a damn. I’m not invested in FOX or any other news agency. Few things in politics are reported without bias in one form or another. Next.

            • brerol

              The fact you are commenting here would tell anyone that you do give a damn. I agree with your bias reporting in one form or another. So why is FOX so scrutinize while most of the rest are blindly ignored?

              • I didn’t create the post. See my follow up on this post as a separate point of view instead of trying to answer all of these posts. That’s where i stand. End of my discussion on this topic.

          • Actually, I feel exactly the same way about MSNBC that does the same thing for liberals. It;s not a Liberal conservative diaper issue. It;s a media bias issue in general. I don’t watch these progeams fro exactly that reason. I prefer factcheck.org, and Politifact.com, outlets that actually do some background checking to ascertain the veracity of statements made by the media.

      • Spring1217

        Actually if you read Politifact or Snopes regularly, they’re non partisan, and call out all people and both parties on their inconsistencies and lies!!

      I simply can´t watch Fox for more than 3 minutes. They either lie or criticize Obama. As a matter of fact, they criticize Obama 24 hours a day.

      • BeefnBean

        How would you know what FoxNews reports on 24 hours a day when you just stated you can watch for more than 3 minutes? So, for 1,437 other minutes you are watching something else. I bet you voted for Obama, twice.

        • Nana Nana

          Your retort is moronic. If you watched fox news 10 times at 3 min a pop, totalling 30 mins, and every time you watched they were either telling a lie or criticizing Obama, what is the likelihood that they do it 24 hours a day?

          Strange how republiKKKlans will get particular over a phrase here, but will vote for the party that took us from Surplus to Cesspool, & bet someone voted for the president Elect X 2 that recovered much of what bushCo. stole from them & America.

      • joeyr

        I too am sick of the Obama bashing. Certainly he isn’t perfect but who is. I thought we as Americans should respect the leader of our country, but I guess I was wrong. Try going to your job everyday and having to fight with everyone. I have great respect for any person whi even wants to become president, except for Trump. Obama has done the best he can with the people on the other side he has to work with.

        • samurai6669

          Did you say the same thing when the networks bashed Bush?

          • AKRNC

            According to Fox, when Bush was in office, it was disrespectful and almost treasonous to speak against the President while the U.S. was at war. However, their tune changed completely when President Obama entered the White House. After that it became almost mandatory that you speak out against the sitting President, war or not. They are the worst of hypocrites among any news source.

            • samurai6669

              Nice evasion but that wasn’t the question I posed.

        • Martin Green

          You can respect the office but despise the incumbent. I bet you didn’t cut Bush the same slack.

      • That’s their job. They are an arm of the “Conservatives” whatever that means anymore. Let’s ask Trump of he knows what a Conservative is. After all, he is their leader now.

    • CountyBoy561-610

      Maybe if fox spent some time reporting actual news instead of bashing Obama maybe this wouldn’t be the case.. The people who see fox as a legitimate news source only are looking for someone to validate their racist Muslim hating views. The GOP is so out of touch with reality and what common people need, no wonder they haven’t won an election in 12 years, and their going to loose again this year for the same reason.

      Faux news is simply entertainment. Anyone with a brain knows it isn’t news. It has always been just hate and lies.

      • BeefnBean

        I’m sure you’re an expert since you used that clever faux word in place of Fox. All this derision heaped on FoxNews has the opposite effect. People want to see what the fuss is all about. They tune in and discover it is both Fair & Balanced. Plus the beautiful women are nice to look at as well. Much better than the hags or old farts on the other news stations. Keep telling the world how bad FoxNews is and they’ll get even more viewers.

        • Candice Edelen

          Fair and balanced? Do you work for Fox News? Because clearly you’re a liar.

          • Martin Green

            Multiple studies have shown that in the 2012 election Fox had more balanced ratio of Pro-Romney/Anti-Obama reporting than the major MSM outlets had with Pro-Obama/Anti-Romney. The 2016 election news cycle is even more unbalanced on the part of the non-Fox Pro-Hilary MSM.

        • l’Augure3VI

          Fair & Balanced? They are like a feather and an anvil on each end of a teeter-totter. Boobs over brains doesn’t exactly make for reliable reporting either.

          That’s how I discovered Rush Limbaugh years ago. The leftist media had told me he was a hateful racist war monger for so long that I picked up his first book just to be able to be able to find out what this moron really thought. After two or three chapters it was… “wait a minute”.

              Rush Limbaugh, O’Reilly, and Hannity are all OPINION/ENTERTAINMENT personalities, not reporters.

            Hate to break it to you but fox news spent the past 8 years making up stories and not actually reporting news..

          I guess admitting your failing liberal views will never happen. But then again thats why fox has been awarded the most truth worthy news. Your insanely stupid liberal views are lies even though you waste time and air claiming fox to be. Oh well I guess you’ll just have to accept America isn’t as whacked out liberal as you want is to be. When we elect our new conservative president you’ll still be equating all Republicans to racist bigots. But democrats that shared the same morals with in the last ten years are just educated people. Lmfao gtfoh Hopefully you quacks will shut the heck up about being the majority when we get our 100 million votes. But only 1 million watch fox. Hmm I wonder how 99 million know that liberals are ignorant fools without watching fox?. Oh that’s right, you don’t have to watch fox to know CNN and MSNBC are failing communist with a dash of socialism mixed in

          • CountyBoy561-610

                Sure we should cut taxes start wars and giveaway a new drug program that’s how you balance the budget right? its the Republican way. Then when a new President comes on board you can blame it all on him. By the way I read that More Louisiana Republicans Blame President Obama For Hurricane Katrina Response Than Bush that just shows how bats–t crazy they are.

            • Ryan Wheeler

              It’s basic math there genius. I said that based on the numbers from all those national news networks. 10 years of being number 1 does mean something. When a station does better than the other 2 combined national news shows its pretty obvious who is liked the most for their news But not to liberals have a deep hatred for rich white men and the way they’ve made this the best country on earth to live. You and many liberals try to say that fox watchers are old poor white trash which is contradictory to when yall call them rich old white bigots. Bte it is hilariois hearing CNN(who fakes being at war places) and (msdnc with Brian Williams) are believable and trustworthy. Even though 71% of Americans believe the leading Democrat is a liar that puts troops at risk you don’t believe it. Most of us know she would put this whole country at risk but not feux news haters. Its the 29% that is hardcore liberal that blindly support the overspending wreckless policies that have us where we are right now economicly. FYI: 19 trilliin isnt a good thing! Which leads right into why Republicans are winning in states that always elect a Democrat. Or have the majority in the House of Reps. A majority that they haven’t had since your supposed “party switch” the left tries to exploit every chance they get. At the end of the day Fox talks about important topics and truly let’s both sides opinion be heard. That’s in complete contrast to the other 2. With that said its easy to be naive and continue villifyng people because they look at situations in the full context how we do. Personally I know conservatives that watch the other declining news stations and they always end back at fox. At the end of the day I know none of those facts mean anything to someone who deeply hates hillbilly’s or rednecks. And I do know there are some white supremacists that push somewhat of the same narrative but that is because they want to preserve their actual race. We want to preserve the country and morals. Instead of taking the time to know people for who they are like myself who has 2 mixed nephews and there father as a brother in law, I’m labeled a bigot simply for wanting to be more conservative. Not turn into a society of which having an abortion every year is just normal. Oh well, enough time wasted already. Enjoy being a naive puppet

                All of your numbers are wrong by the way, but assuming there is some grain of truth to them I would hazard a guess that the reason that news network has so many die hard republican followers is because those toothless freaking morons that watch it love to hear their own racist, homophobic, sexist, moronic, torture loving and largely false rhetoric spat back at them. It makes them feel less alone in the world because their population is depleting so drastically. It also makes them run around the internet and troll because in their heart of hearts all a neoconservative die hard republican who follows fox news and really wants to see a fascist world order take over America, is hate. It’s your only skill.

                  You are dilluisional. Anyone that HATES Republicans can come up with a web site that uses “Pants on Fire”. I mean are you really this naive? Discuss is what they decided to use as who is telling the truth? Lmfao. Only ignorant leftist actually believe this non sense. Which you are obviously one of btw..Just because a few hundred thousand sheep read this trash doesn’t make it true. Just like because Fox has millions of daily viewers that doesnt always make them perfect either. But to suggest that you are sane and the majority of law abiding, tax paying fox viewers are stupid, is rediculous .. You are one of the libtards that thinks the wonkette is more truthful yhan the program rated #1 for the last ten years. And you may not think that matters at all but the rest of us just sit back and laugh at how ignorant you sound. At the end of the day there is a reason fox is #1 and fools like you keep defending failing liberal organizations. But we love your pathetic jealousy. Just do us all a favor and when you brush your dentures tonight, use a pistol.

            THIS is a perfect example of why I no longer identify as a Republican. I am still a conservative, but there simply is no conservative party anymore. The GOP debate has turned into “candidates” simply bashing each other. When did people decide that it was a good idea to support candidates that don’t even understand foreign and economic policy? Also, here is a link to an article that quotes an old school Republican, Barlett. http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2015/05/how-fox-news-is-hurting-the-republicans/393485/

            I’ve also read that people like me are considered a new type of Democrat…that’s right, conservatives (by the actual definition, not this new definition) are finding a home in the Democratic party.

Should I then “guess” that youre black “i dont have to see your face…” YOU ARE THE RACIST – maybe if people would discuss ISSUES then that race discussion could actually happen in a productive way with people airing out legit concerns on both sides not name calling.

What kind of reporting is that? I think most of us know the answer to that question. Annual polls always identify FOX as the most truthful by a longs way over the others. In other words, the people know the real truth of what these liberal rags try to do.

I also listen to BBC for international perspective. I also get a Sunday paper (yeah, I’m that old – but there is never anything in there that I haven’t already heard on the radio.

                    If you want a more educated conversation do not start off with the idea that FOX is lying but that the other major media isn’t either lying outright or by leaving out important information.

                    When I was first recovering from a concussion I watched Obama in a speech before the nation look right into the camera and say that the economy was Improving and that unemployment was down – the VERY NEXT DAY the reports from the departments were EXACTLY OPPOSITE. Unemployment was up and the economy was down.

                    Switching from station to station and looking on the Internet revealed NOT ONE SINGLE MEDIA OUTLET EVEN MENTIONED IT.

                  Obviously, you have never listened to” All Things Considered” or “Morning Edition”. They report news in much more detail than any cable new organization. This morning, they revealed the automated system that would have prevented the Philadelphia derailment was in place, but because of issues with inadequate radio band width and the need for testing, it had not yet been activated. Last night they went through how the system to slow the train was not costs effective for preventing deaths because so few deaths occur of the rail system. It is very expensive to place the sensors in the tracks and takes a lot of time and expense. However, passage and freight trains can have more rail traffic and potentially faster turn around times, increasing profits, so it is not industry holding it up. Radio frequency issues are the major problem, and that is being resolved between the parties as they find the problems. All systems should have the system up late this year by government mandate, but a lot already have it in place and are using it.

                  I realize the conservative whining point is “liberal biased”, and you have been conditioned to respond “liberal biased” whenever you are told too, but this is the typical quick news story that NPR puts out without the hateful biased that Fox relies on to whip up idiots into a frenzy. Most of you fools have no clue.

                    I never said anything about liberal bias. that is your bias and is fallacious: a straw man argument. I have listened to All Things Considered and Morning Edition. I didn’t find either one to be news worthy. More elitist, globalist propaganda. And I am no morea conservative than I am a liberal. I have not been conditioned. Unlike you I control my own programming. you have been programmed. You immediately assume anyone who doesn’t agree with you must be a conservative, because you think you are a liberal.

                        You must be a CON – you make up your own facts as you feel the need.. Know what you said, but in reality, you have likely not listened to NPR news and are a Fox Bot. Most conservatives I know have few few issues with NPR – and a lot of that is with stuff other than the national news (Dianne Ream show, Fresh Air, Native America Talking) or other talk and population specific news. Some even contribute during fund drives. NPR is funded in large part through listener contributions. It is much less bias than Fox which was created to have biased. For you education.

                        You have been programmed. I don’t even own a television. And I have listened to nationalist propaganda radiation, as it was the only station I could tune into with my mp3 player on my daily commute. You have been programmed to believe that anyone who disagrees with your opinion must be lying. And your ‘reasoning’ isn’t even close to consistent. Yousay I must be a conservvative, but then you say most conservatives ‘have few few’ issues’ with nationalist propaganda radiation. They aren’t conservatives, most likely. More like authoritarian collectivists who worship nationalism. As for Fair, here’s some articles for your education:

        But they didn’t ever demonize the last president. Fair and balanced…even their tagline is a lie.

            Ok, I did. I don’t see one that has the Fox News logo on the signs or one with a Fox personality holding one.

      • infrahuman

        There is no Democratic party. It is the Progressive/Muslim/Marxist party and after 60 years of infiltration and indoctrination it controls virtually every social, cultural, legal, educational, political and media institution in what was once the greatest country on earth.

        Where have you been hiding?
        http://www.thedayamericadied.org/

        • Phil

          Wow. How should I respond to that. Hmmmmmm. Maybe when you beam back to earth I can try to teach you:
          The fundamental difference between liberals and conservatives is that liberals believe the government has a responsibility to look after it’s citizens. Conservatives believe there should be limited government intervention and that citizens can and should fend for themselves.
          The GOP and Fox News demonizes Obama, labels liberals as socialists, so for the benefit of you conservative republicans here is what your party and Fox News stands for:
          Fact: Conservatives believe in little to no government intervention.(80-90% of CEOs are conservative). Coincidence? dream on!
          Fact: Conservative Politicians believe everyone on welfare is lazy and undeserving.
          Fact: Conservatives insure their freedom from government control by painting liberal democrats as socialists, communists, marxists in hopes of getting your votes and 2014 was a very good year for them.
          Fact: Conservatives would rather the tax burden be shouldered by the middle to lower class leaving less of a tax burden to the ELITE. Why? Because of Fact number 2 primarily.
          Fact: Conservatives could care less about your wants, needs or desires once you’ve cast your vote. If you have a senator or congressman voting party instead of constituency….9 times out of 10 it’s a republican.
          Fact: Liberals are NOT interested in taking away your 2nd amend. rights. They ARE interested in gun control and reduction of death due to gun violence.
          Fact: The NRA cares about one thing. PROFITS from the sale and manufacture of firearms and ammo. PERIOD!
          Fact: Conservatives feel that everyone can and should fend for themselves without government intervention. That’s an easy statement to make when you’re in the top 1-5% income wise. They want to abolish: welfare, social security, medicare for a voucher program.
          Fact: If Obama were guilty of even a small percentage of what he’s accused of he wouldn’t be in office. C’mon, Folks! This has been going on for 6 1/2 years.
          Fact: Since the election of 2008 it has been the focus of the GOP to sabotage every effort by this current administration (foreign and domestic).
          Fact: One of the biggest lies told in the last 6 years is McConnell or Boehner saying they are willing to work with this administration.
          NOW you can quote the constitution, show me graphs, call me names(you conservatives are good at that),make your case quoting Fox News, or just continue to believe that YOUR party has your best interests at heart. And, if your income is among the top 1-5%….they certainly do. The rest of you had better open your eyes, your minds and look at things a little more objectively. Take that to the bank.

          • infrahuman

            You should have replaced the word FACT with the Progressive/Communist word CONSENSUS. Nothing you have said is factual. Who writes your script media matters? For FACTs review the two sites below and follow the links and report back to me. I will determine whether you have learned anything or not.

            For your edification, I was a life-long, liberal democrat until I realized what the non-citizen, Muslim terrorist in the White House meant by TRANSFORM.

            • Arcanek

              Not even consensus, opinion or delusion is more apt.

            • Phil

              I think it was when you stopped taking your meds and laxatives, to be frank. Now take a seat!

              • infrahuman

                Phil have you looked in the mirror lately? Deaf, dumb and blind and scary old? Great analysis by the way.

                  Yeah, SUB-HUMAN
                  Everyone should age this well. Now take your laxative and then take your seat.

            • Mike

              Your last sentence shows your ignorance and hate. Unless you are talking about the oil baron in the White House that did business with muslims, lied us into a war for oil, tried to sell our ports to a muslim company and let the family of the guy that just attacked us on the only flight out of the country on 9/11.

            • Arcanek

              You can’t be both liberal and democratic. Just like you can’t be both republican and conservative.

          • Arcanek

            No. A liberal is someone who believes in no class ditintion: equality for all. A conservative is someone who tends totheir own needs without interfering in the affairs of others. They are not opposites. Someone who believes in tending to their own needs without interfering in the affairs of others and also believes in equality for all is both liberal and conservative. A liberal would not vote, because that creates the calss distinction of ruler and subject. A conservative would not vote, because that is interfering in the affairs of others. Your facts are opinion, not fact.

            • Andres Herrera

              Q; A conservative is someone who tends to their own needs without interfering in the affairs of others.

              Unless of course, the others are brown, or gay, or tg, or unwed mothers, or muslim, or orphans etc etc ad nauseum

              • Arcanek

                No. Those aren’t conservatives. If they don’t fit the definition, they are not conservatives.

                • Andres Herrera

                  I have yet to see a conservative support gay marriage. ergo your belief is fraudulent as best.

                  • Arcanek

                    Because you don’t know what a conservative is.

                    • Andres Herrera

                      Apparently neither do you. All you know is hypocrisy.

                      • Arcanek

                        I defined it. You did not. You just use the definition that the media spews because you are incapable of thinking for yourself. How am I a hypocrite? Where is the hypocrisy in my posts? Do you believe conservatives are the opposite of liberals?

                  • SHOTGUN285

                    You haven’t seen it because you choose not to look for it. Your beliefs are founded in emotion, not logic or fact.

                  • Dan Marchildon

                    Wow, I’ve yet to see a leftist help a black person therefore it must not happen. I’m a classical conservative – I believe government has strict limitations, states have rights and the individual is the basis for a free society. I believe in personal responsibility and the freedom to succeed and fail. I believe our republic cannot survive without a responsible and educated electorate and populace. It is not the job or the power of the government to stop two consenting adults to marry. You have been served.

                    • Andres Herrera

                      Q: I have yet to see a leftist help a black person.
                      Curious statement coming from a conservative. Your type are generally complaining about having to support black people. And that it’s the democrats that encourage blacks to be dependent on handouts. The only thing you served was a feeble attempt at marketing yourself a “classical conservative.” hahahahaha

                      • Dan Marchildon

                        Kind of funny how you ignored my disruption of your point – a conservative supporting gay marriage. Nice, classical dodge! You and Phil are made for each other. You don’t make sense, you strut around like you’ve won something, and your posts….sheesh. What other examples can I give you to dispute your weak assertion? Just because YOU haven’t seen something does not mean it is true – in this case conservatives supporting gay marriage. If we can use a bit of higher thinking, I’m not supporting gay marriage – my political beliefs do not let my feelings get in the way. You might have to come off your high horse to actually think about that one. Feeble….sheesh….Like arguing with a freshman…in high school.

                      • Andres Herrera

                        I’m ignoring you cause you have nothing of value to add. i don’t bother with morons like you.

                • Mike

                  Then most of the people that vote republican are not conservatives.

                  • Arcanek

                    None of them are. Nobody who votes is conservative. A conservative tends to their own needs and does not interfere in the affairs of others. Voting is not tending to one’s own needs, and it is interfering in the affairs of others.

                    • Mike

                      you have a different definition of conservative.

                      • Arcanek

                        Well, state yours. My is based on the philosophical notion, not the political notion, as politics is merely authoritarian collectivist propaganda. Themedia wants you think that liberalls are the opposites of conservatives. If you believe that, you have been programmed.

                      • Mike

                        You know exactly what I mean. People think alike and form groups labels are put on to them. Even if the origin or traditional definition doesn’t fit it does evolve. Like the swastika, it was a sign of peace for some but evolved into a symbol of hate because of those associated with it. I do agree that people are brainwashed if they subscribe 100% to either ideology or party agenda.

                      • Arcanek

                        Evolution of the language requires new terms for new concepts. changing the meaning of words to fit a new methodology or ideology is corruption of the language,

                      • Mike

                        Again, you know exactly what I meant and what everyone is talking about when discussing politics about what is conservative and liberal. No matter what your research or deep studies tell you where you feel you have to point out something to make you feel better about yourself. There is a general consensus in America (and in many other countries) of the political terms Conservative and Liberal.

                        It is not evolution of a language, just a word.

                      • Arcanek

                        You’re missing the point. the terms have been misapropriated to foment diviion aong the people. It is a very old tactic. And exactly where is this conensus you speak of stated? Very few, if any people agree on exactly what the terms mean, which is the whole point of them confusing the meaning.

                      • Mike

                        The consensus on this very thread. The one you see on TV and the internet every 5 minutes. Republicans = conservatives, Democrats = liberals.

                      • Arcanek

                        This thread is hardly a valid determination of any consensus. And I don’t watch TV. It’s for idiots. And you can find just about anything on the Internet, but that doesn’t make it true. You’ll find republicans called neocons, tea party, warhawks, etc. You’ll find democrats called marxists, communists, socialists, etc.

                      • SHOTGUN285

                        the classic definition for a liberal is someone that wants immediate, radical change regardless of potential unintended consequences, and a conservative is someone that places the burden of proof upon those that would change from the status quo. Not that change is bad or shouldn’t happen, just that you need to prove that the proposed change will be better than what we have now. You people need to stop letting the idiots in social media redefine words for you.

                      • Arcanek

                        Where did you get those definitions? your definition of a liberal sounds more like a progressive, and your definition of a conservative sounds more like a reactionary. Nobody in social media has redefined anything for me. I don’t see anything in the root etymology of liberal that indicates anthing like your definition. same for conservative.

              • SHOTGUN285

                do yourself a favor, buy a dictionary and stop making up definitions for words you don’t understand. and better yet, do some reading in the political science spectrum and find out what words like “liberal” and “conservative” actually mean

                • Mike

                  Look up the word Gay. It now has a reference to homosexuality. 30 years ago it didn’t. Popular culture shapes and evolves the meaning of words and decides what they are even if they don’t always exactly fit the traditional, ancient meaning. Just like the swastika and confederate flag have changed meanings over time and who used them as symbols.

                • Andres Herrera

                  Why don’t you stick to fellating black men?

              • Mike

                LOL! nailed it.

            • Phil

              I stand by my facts and question your brief description of liberals and conservatives.

              • Arcanek

                You mena your opinions. They suffer from the fallacy of generalizations so blatantly, it is obvious that you lack knowledge in formal logic. And of course, you question my description of liberals and conservatives, because it undermines your opinion.

            • Mike

              then why all the crying over ACA? Conservatives cry when people get stuff for free but when they are asked to pay their share they cry even more?

              • Arcanek

                A conservative is someone who tends to their own needs without interfering in the affairs of others. Nobody gets anything for free from the government. Somebody pays for it. The share anyone should pay for something is the share they get. If I get something, I pay for it. Icontribute to charity, but it is by choice. Paying ‘their share’ is paying for what they get.

                • Mike

                  Again, you have a different definition of Conservative.
                  In the ACA the GOP cried about the mandate, which means everyone must be covered and pay for their own health insurance. Therefore, not getting anything free from the government. Yet they were against it.

                  • Arcanek

                    No, the definition is the same one I have always had. And nothing from the government is fre, and the government never makes anything less expensive. And they have no right to require anyone to purchase anything.

                    • Mike

                      Your definition maybe, you wouldn’t be trying to point it out to everyone if we all agreed. Do you not see how the whole country calls the Democrats liberals and the Republicans conservatives?

                      The government requires you to have auto insurance, they require you to pay taxes. Conservative, I mean Republicans are always crying about the poor getting free things from the government. Taxpayers pay for the people that don’t have health insurance if they go to the emergency room. The ACA wants the people without healthcare to pay for it themselves so we all don’t have to. It is fiscal responsibility, something the republicans toute all the time except when a democrat suggests it.

                      • Arcanek

                        No, I don’t see the whole country doing that. I’m not doing it, and I’m not alone. It’s mostly the voters, and they are dwindling in number. There is no authorization in the constitution for the government to requireanyone to purchase anything. Andyou just corrected your improper conflation of conservative with republican. How is requiring someone to pay for something whether they want or need it or not equivalent to fiscal responsponsibility?

              • Dan Marchildon

                Maybe it is because it is not free? Maybe because the idea of “fair share” is skewed? Maybe it is a little more detailed than all that?

            • SHOTGUN285

              do yourself a favor, buy a dictionary and stop making up definitions for words you don’t understand. and better yet, do some reading in the political science spectrum and find out what words like “liberal” and “conservative” actually mean.

            I love it when morons publish their emotionally held beliefs and stamp the word “fact” on it, as if there is no room for discussion or dissenting opinion.

            Your entire rant could be taken from the Huffpost or MSNBC talking points, and you’ve got no facts to support your position on almost every point you so smugly try and make.

            Here is a suggestion, stop acting like everyone that doesn’t agree with your marxist agenda is a clueless lemming, and learn to engage people in debate and not talk down to them. People like you think you are engaging in discourse, when in fact you want to shut it down.

            • Phil

              Maybe you should read the replies I’ve gotten from IDIOTS such as yourself and then you’ll see that I’m more than willing to engage in discussion on any and all of my facts. Idiots such as yourself deal in insults and that just won’t work on me because, you see, I’m BULLET-PROOF. That’s a term even an IDIOT such as yourself can recognize. My sources, for your information, are basic human nature. The same basic human nature that allows Idiots such as yourself to hide behind a keyboard and SPEW. You see, no one else is interested in engaging me in discussion. They just tell me the same things you do. Let’s see, you’ve labeled me a moron, Marxist and made allegations that I’m unwilling to engage in discussion. You want to engage me…pick a Fact and engage me. Otherwise, take a seat.

                    Cool, now you are playing the victim. “Mean ole conservatives insulting me…whahahahahaha!” It is not even about politics now. Hate Obama more than they love the country?

                  When you’re not on here verbally bludgeoning people to death do you find yourself talking to yourself and answering yourself in the affirmative? Talking to you is kicking a dead horse and this one is RIPE and beginning to SMELL!

                    Now, aren’t you sorry that you attacked me with your ’empty gun’ (mind)? Otherwise, I wouldn’t have counter-attacked with real ammunition. You have been entertaining, but now I’m bored and done with you, so you MAY HAVE THE LAST WORD. Try to top yourself with an even more absurd rant. Sadly for you, I WILL NOT READ IT. Adios, loser!

                    • Phil

                      You’ll read it if for no other reason than you LIKE KICKING DEAD HORSES! You’re a sad pathetic old man that serves as a reminder of what can happen if the mind isn’t nourished by a positive attitude. You must be one miserable old coot in person. Sadly you never get bored. Even after bludgeoning something to death you probably still keep pounding….LOL. That is So Sad!

            • StraghtGate

              Yup; even “facts” can be spun. It’s called “propaganda” which flows daily from the leftist media and the White House.

          • Dan Marchildon

            Political parties and their news outlets demonize the other political party. You are doing the “conservatives are mean and we aren’t” shtick – not going to let you get away with that.
            Now, please prove your facts – 80% are GOP? Like Google, Facebook? GE? IF you actually did research you’d find CE’s are heavily involved in both parties – once again your “only GOP is bad” mentality
            Believe everyone welfare recipient is lazy – that is not a fact, it is a rhetorical generalization to make a group look bad – well done.
            Leftist insure their greed, er, “freedom” by painting conservatives as racist, fascists, blah blah blah. Also, when it comes to calling Leftists communists, etc – quack like a duck?
            Dang, just looked at your entire post. I have a headache from the rhetorical nonsense you have vomited onto the screen!

            • Phil

              I did the research on the CEOs and the figures are accurate. As far as your headache goes…..truth stings a little doesn’t it? Anyone that uses the term communist in regards to liberals is, in my opinion, too far gone to reason with so you can hold fast to that belief. I can’t fix stupid or closed-minded or lacking in objectivity.

              • StraghtGate

                You are such a habitual liar that the ‘Liar-in-Chief’ should invite you to the White House! Furthermore, you keep doing it when we all see your lies for what they are!

          • Bruce Hodgkins

            Your first “fact is a lie” 80%-90% of CEO’s are not conservative. But what is the matter with being a Conservative. Liberalism is a failed philosophy in every country, state, county and city where Democrats are in control. Your second fact is a lie. Republicans do not believe that EVERYONE on welfare is lazy and undeserving, but there certainly is a good number that are lazy. Democrats are socialists and communists, examine their policies and it is quite clear that the Democrats embrace socialist and communistic policies. Obama is a communist, his book will tell you that, his mommy and Daddy were communists, his grandparents were Communists, Obama was mentored by Frank Marshall Davis, a noted communist and Obama studied under Sal Alyinsky, a famous Communist. Fact 3 is false and completely without proof. The rich pay over 50% of the tax burden. Fact 4 is completely false and not worth commenting on. Fact 5 is also a lie, Obama and his administration concocted “Fast and Furious”; a program to show that the Mexican drug cartel was getting their guns from the U.S., when in fact Eric Holder’s Justice department gave the guns to the Mexicans in order to shut down gun stores on the border. In fact, unconstitutional gun laws were written by Democrats. in Democrat controlled cities that have Democrat written stiff gun control laws, deaths from shootings is higher than anywhere in the country.Fact 8 is also a lie, the NRA has nothing to do with profits from the manufacture and sale of weapons. Fact 9-Republicans do not want to abolish welfare and Social Security, but their plan to provide vouchers for health care is an excellent idea. It gives us seniors the right to choose our health care provider, Fact 10 Obama is guilty of everything he has been charged with, but the impeachment process could not be started with the Democrat Controlled Congress. Now it is too late, because the process takes too long . Fact 11 is absolutely true. The Democrats have proposed laws and regulations that are extremely harmful to this country. In fact, the Democrats have not produced one piece of legislation that benefits the country since they have been formed. It is a good thing that the Republicans blocked the Democrats. Fact 12 is backwards, they have tried to work with the Democrats, but it is the Democrats that refused to work with the Republicans The Affordable Health Care Act is a good example, the Democrats did not allow any Republicans to participate in its creation. Can you provide one instance of the Democrats wanting to work with the Republicans?

            • Phil

              The first fact is just that. The second fact, if you know how to READ, refers to republican POLITICIANS and it’s spot on. I don’t need to hear from you how people abuse the system. And, the rest of your rhetoric is wasted on me since I could care less about the degree of brain washing you’ve experienced in equating democrats with communists. Fact 12 is spot on as well, BTW. Fact 8 is spot on and only a passionate gun owner would deny it for his precious NRA. You’ve spoken your peace and I’ve spoken mine. You believe what you wish and insult if you must but, I’m firm on my facts. Deal with it. You’re too narrow minded and brainwashed to warrant a second more of my time. Take a seat.

              I notice that all of my critics share a similarity and that is their excessive use of the labels, communist, Marxist, socialist. That tells me that you all drink from the same polluted well and dismissing your claims, insults and so-called facts is easy for me.

            Fact: YOUR assessments are wrong. The right is about balance. We are hardworking and can make our own way. The left/progressives are about CONTROL and dependence on the government. You look at places like Baltimore where billions have been dumped into it and it is a mess and going down the tube. Look at Chicago and so many other D controlled states that are in trouble. Government is to protect us from foreign invaders yet they are not doing that. Look at our boarders, terrorist from anywhere can pour in, yet good people from other countries are turned down when they try to enter legally, I know too many that have had this happen. DC is out of control and they love the division among the citizens because we are too busy fighting among ourselves instead of pulling the plug on their corruption, both sides. WE are the victims here. That is how the few RULE the many. That is why so many civilizations fall from within. Too many people know nothing! Watch some of the “on the street” interviews with average people. Scary!!!! I am middle class and see the government taking more and more and not just in the monetary department. It is our freedom and rights they plot against. There are no longer 3 branches of government when a president can ignore the other 2. I do see the behavior from the left that you say you do not do. It is like the left is from Mars, I just do not understand their reasoning. The inmates are running the asylum!

BTW I could probably do some brain surgery but, mine’s fine. You can have the last word. I don’t wish to waste a minute more like I did with “straightgate” what’s his name.

        • Arcanek

          It wasn’t 60 years of infiltration and indoctrination. The first groundswell political movement in the US was the anti masonic movement in the early 1800s, because the masons controlled both parties because they started the parties. As for the US being the greatest country on earth, that is just nationalist propaganda. The only time the US was not involved in one military action or another was during the anti masonic movement. Here is a link to the story of the constitution: http://www.thetruthaboutthelaw.com/they-really-put-the-con-in-constitutional-convention/

          • StraghtGate

            Please name the country you believe is greater than the U.S. – why are you not THERE?

            You are grossly misinformed about Masonry; I’ve known many Masons (an uncle was a 32nd. degree Mason who wished to “control” nothing – and they did/do great things for children and many others. There is a great women’s auxiliary and I, myself, was a member of DeMolay or ‘junior Masons.

            • Arcanek

              Read Albert Pike’s Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry. He was a 33rd degree Mason, who, along with Nathan Bedford Forrest, founded the Ku Klux Klan. He says, in Morals and Dogma, that their god is Lucifer. He fled the country after the Lincoln assassination. The anti Masonic movement was in response to the control the Masons had over both parties.

              • StraghtGate

                I guess that garbage helps sell books, etc. However, I know what I saw and the good work they have done. That means far more to me than ancient history, good or bad, or the actions of a few individuals. As to their God being “Lucifer,” you crossed the line from sanity. My uncle was strongly involved in his church as was his entire family so, again, it’s garbage.

                • Arcanek

                  Where did this come from? What does it have to with my post? Do you have a problem with free speech? Why aren’t you in some country that doesn’t allow it? Even if the US was the best country on the planet, does that make it good?

                  • StraghtGate

                    You post broad, horrible accusations against a revered organization and ask me a question like that? My uncle, the 32nd degree Mason was honored by both the American Legion (for his military service) and the Masons at his funeral and grave-side services. That’s “where that came from,” Lucifer! Direct your distorted, “free speech” to someone else.

                    • Arcanek

                      You don’t want the response, then you quit responding. And why didn’t you address the free speech issue? If you’re opposed to free speech, why don’t you go somewhere it’s not allowed? I wasn’t referring to your uncle, anyway. I was asking where this ‘greater country’ misdirection came from. I see you avoided answering my questions, but insist I answer yours.

                      • StraghtGate

                        Your posts are rambling nonsense. In fact (look up that word), you “addressed” me first – and I did answer your questions but disagreed with your accusations. I’ve supported the First Amendment repeatedly but it doesn’t excuse stupidity.

                        In your original post, you stated, and I quote, “as for us being the greatest country on earth, that is just nationalist propaganda.” I asked then (and again later) to tell me what other country is greater than the U.S. and why you aren’t living THERE. So, I ask that once more, what other country is greater than the U.S. and why aren’t you there rather than here attacking me? Not going to answer, are you? Adios.

                      • Arcanek

              Any country that apply true justice is greater than USA..

That’s not greater.. that’s golem nation live to serve a sick master.. you have no will.. The very idea makes a true free loving person think any other country better than U.S. I don’t want to even visit my family there. They can come to me but state of satan is not for me. I am happy with the fact many Americans are waking up from this hypnoses of twisted bitter taste “greater” USA. Some are even fighting back.. I was only commenting about that line: “Please name the country you believe is greater than the U.S. – and state why are you not THERE?”

              The rest is not business.

              • StraghtGate

                Wow; you just posted some of the most incoherent, ignorant slander that I’ve ever read. Define, “justice,” and tell what tiny Sweden or Iceland done for the rest of the world. And, AGAIN, why aren’t YOU there?

                Evidently, you are too mentally ill to grasp the fact that Israel is the only Mideast country with a degree of personal freedom. Most of the others are dictatorships that sponsor terrorists who are trying to kill us – and every other non-Muslim – including Swedes and Icelanders! Because of that and because she is surrounded by countries trying to destroy her, we support her any way we can. Seek help, sicko!

            • Phil

              I’ve read some of your other posts and one thing rings true about you, Dave! Your arguments have ZERO fact or SUBSTANCE to support them so out of sheer frustration you resort to PROFANITY, NAME CALLING, and INSULTS. The ONLY point you are making is what an IMBECILE you are. The American People who see Donald Trump as a viable candidate believe so because they’re tired of POLITICIANS in general and who can blame them. I’ve said for a long time that this country should close it’s shores and borders and let the rest of the world fend for itself. Unfortunately, there is a bit of a cancer that threatens to weaken THIS COUNTRY’S core belief system. This cancer focuses on making this current President and his administration look bad instead of working with him to find solutions to problems. If you’re going to vote conservative you need to understand your party better:
              The fundamental difference between liberals and conservatives is that liberals believe the government has a responsibility to look after it’s citizens. Conservatives believe there should be limited government intervention and that citizens can and should fend for themselves.
              The GOP and Fox News demonizes Obama, labels liberals as socialists, so for the benefit of you conservative republicans here is what your party and Fox News stands for:
              Fact: The GOP believe in little to no government intervention.(2% of CEO’s are registered Democrat). Coincidence? Dream on!
              Fact: Conservative Politicians believe everyone on welfare is lazy and undeserving.
              Fact: The GOP insured it’s freedom from government control by painting liberal democrats as socialists, communists, Marxists in hopes of getting your votes and 2014 was a very good year for them.
              Fact: Conservatives would rather the tax burden be shouldered by the middle to lower class leaving less of a tax burden to the ELITE. Why? Because of Fact number 2 primarily.
              Fact: Conservatives could care less about your wants, needs or desires once you’ve cast your vote. If you have a senator or congressman voting party instead of constituency….9 times out of 10 it’s a republican.
              Fact: Liberals are NOT interested in taking away your 2nd amend. rights. They ARE interested in gun control and reduction of death due to gun violence.
              Fact: The NRA cares about one thing. PROFITS from the sale and manufacture of firearms and ammo. PERIOD!
              Fact: Conservatives feel that everyone can and should fend for themselves without government intervention. That’s an easy statement to make when you’re in the top 1-5% income wise. They want to abolish: welfare, social security, Medicare for a voucher program.
              Fact: If Obama and Hillary Clinton were guilty of even a small percentage of what they are accused of they wouldn’t be in office. Come on, Folks! This has been going on for 7 years.
              Fact: Since the election of 2008 it has been the focus of the GOP to sabotage every effort by this current administration (foreign and domestic).
              Fact: One of the biggest lies told in the last 7 years is McConnell or Boehner saying they are willing to work with this administration.
              Fact: Pro-Lifers would have you believe that all “pro-choice advocates condone murder of a fetus.
              Fact: Most Pro-choice advocates are for abortion ONLY in cases involving RAPE or if pregnancy endangers the mother/fetus/both.
              Fact: The GOP cares nothing about the middle class, small business and the disadvantaged.
              Fact: Proposing a tax structure that is fair to ALL classes isn’t Socialism. I know the definition, DO YOU?
              Fact: Most conservatives will tell you that the rest of the world has lost respect for this country because of President Obama when in fact it has lost respect for the U.S. GOV’T because of a GOP majority congress that continues it’s petty obstinance in the face of real world problems.
              Fact: Benghazi is a “dead horse” that neither GOP nor Fox News can stop kicking. And, NOTHING else.
              NOW you can quote the constitution, show me graphs, call me names(you conservatives are good at that),make your case quoting Fox News, or just continue to believe that YOUR party has your best interests at heart. And, if your income is among the top 1-5%….they certainly do. The rest of you had better open your eyes, your minds and look at things a little more objectively. Take that to the bank. And while you’re at it…..look up “socialism” in the dictionary and show me where you see socialism in the making. There’s a reason why Trump is a front runner in the GOP race. It’s because he’s NOT GOP and he actually wants to enact solutions to problems. Something the other candidates on the GOP sorely lack. Class Dismissed!

              • Candice Edelen

                But are his solutions, solutions, or are they more problems?

                How can America shut out the rest of the world for instance, when the rest of the world is all around us. It’s not a matter of petitioning a queen for a boat anymore Christopher Columbus. We live in an Era of planes Trains and Automobiles, not to mention the internet. The world is literally at our finger tips and like Nitche said about the voi,d when we look into it, it looks back. To shut out the rest of the world at this point would mean going purposefully blind. And when you can’t see things tend to sneak up on you.

                While I may not agree that Trump would do anything but take us back to a time with Fascism was all the rage, I do appreciate reasoning. It is lost on many in this New Age, kind of like problem solving skills and patience.

                • Phil

                  Candace, I’m not a Trump supporter. I make an observation based on the FACT that Trump took a look at the Republican party and the Fact that for the last 7 years they’ve been guilty of: Obstructionism, Demonization, Sabotage, Mudslinging, and Racism. He decided that no one was more qualified than he was to be President. The polls show it. At one time the Republican’s leading candidates were: A Narcissist Billionaire, A Delusional Neurosurgeon, and a Lying, Failed CEO. No politicians.

              Oops

          • Davillus Hynzerelli

            Alright pseudo intellectual far left clown u want the truth u can’t handle the truth

            Fact: Hildabeast left 3 SEALS & an ambassador to swing in the wind then blamed it on a dopey vid. Then when congress tried to investigate stonewalled & wouldn’t release emails pertinent to the investigation till recently.

            Fact: the Clintons set up a “charity” slush fund & took milllions from foreign states looking for favors.

            Fact: Hildabeast set up a private email to thwart the freedom of information act then passed classified info on it. That’s why the FBI is involved.

            Fact: top 10% of earners pay almost 70% of the fed income tax. The gov’t then taxes 40% of wealth when u die which is in fact double taxation. This is not fair enough for u??

            Fact: medicare, medicaid & social security if not fixed will be insolvent in next 20 years according to the CBO.

            Fact: I personally want a fully funded planned parenthood, free birth control & abortions. Please libtards have abortions till your uterus’s fall out. Less parasites, less future thugs & democr4ptic voters WIN-WIN>>>>>Use the parts & organs too might as well get something good out of it.

            Marry who u want, heck polygamy should be legal too. Plus legalize majority of soft drugs pot, ecstasy etc. Citizens should have the freedom to destroy yourself. Except opiates like her0in cuz that crap is bad news. Big pharma already has the country legally loaded to the hilt w/ oxy anyways .

            • Phil

              Your “facts” aren’t facts at all. Pure conjecture from a disgruntled conservative. Plus, they don’t exhibit ANY original thought process. My guess is that you are a “cult” member, in good standing, with Fox News and you worship the likes of Bill O’Reilly and Rush “to judgement” Limbaugh. As I stated in my FACT, “if Hillary and Obama were guilty of even a fraction of what they’re accused of they’d be in jail. You’re nothing but, a brainwashed little weasel trolling around on media sites looking for “libtards” to agitate. The man below is a true Republican. The party you endorse is an UGLY mutation.

            Fact: I’m a atheist libertarian white male who doesn’t give a d4mn about social justice, income equality & white privilege nonsense or a abhorrent democr4ptic party that paints me as evil. We’re in a 2 party system so I’m stuck w/ the repubs.

            On climate change
            For all I know the earth will be a radioactive wasteland within the next couple hundred years due to religious fanatics having nuclear weapons so why would I make my life extremely onerous & expensive from micro managing of some bureaucratic environmental dolts quixotic futile efforts to combat what could be the biggest hoax since god/ religion.

      • Shaleena

        The same as when the media demonizes everyone who opposes their agenda. If you have common sense, know what is going on, you know what is a lie or an attack. You can see parts of Russia from parts of Alaska, go look up the Diomede Islands, then apologize to Palin. And no, Behghazi was NOT over a movie. And no, many could not keep their doctors due to that control/revenue bill. There is little transparency in this admin. We do not treat our allies as Obama has treated Netanyahu! If one has nothing to hide, you do not lock up your personal information or wipe out emails on your private server. You put a D/F student in the WH. Prove me wrong, oh, that’s right, you can’t. Those grades Mr. Transparent is so proud of, the ones he got while smoking pot and running around with radicals, are LOCKED UP!!! I am jumping all over the place here because they provide so much fodder, the right should not have to make up any lies (but they do, or sometimes it is even the left masquerading as the right, to discredit the right) too many people do not verify information they receive because it seems so plausible and fits the persons behavior. No one wants their president to fail, it affects us all. But when they do, their actions/ideologies are going to be addressed.

        • Chartreuxe

          That was a SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE line, why should anyone apologize for a joke on a television series? Tina Fey’s a brilliant writer and comedian. It’s hilarious that you still think Palin said that!

          The man who planned and carried out the embassy raid said it was about the movie. Republicans want it to be about 9/11. Whom should we believe, the guy who is responsible for killing the ambassador or the people who want Secretary of State Clinton to fail? This is a perfect example of Fox Lack-of-News lies.

          • Davillus Hynzerelli

            Really?? Bold face lie it just coincided w/ 9-11 by chance.
            HA HA HA the fact libtards still stick to that nonsensical story is incredulous

            • Candice Edelen

              Republicans, Liberals.. Liberals Republicans… I wonder if either side profits from division. The fact is when there are only two parties it’s easy to point fingers and then fall in line blindly because you hate the other side so much more you are willing to ignore everything else. The fact is we’re all being manipulated but to what end I wonder? Who profits from our division and hatred of each other? And why do the networks go to such lengths to nurture it? But then that’s like asking what came first the chicken or the egg. Did we start hating each other first which made the extreme bias on our TV screens profitable? Or did it become profitable because we were manipulated into hating each other and drawing lines of red and blue?

      • Shaleena

        They are the ones providing the fodder. Too many debacles to list but I wish we could get the 5 terrorists traded for the traitor! All these conversations are crazy.

    • don cook

      Evidently MintPress News is another bunch of liberal, pro-CNN, pro-Obama dunderheads! Lately Fox News had the highest ratings in ALL of cable! Why is that? Because they are the ONLY network who consistently reports the FACTS, not the fantasies made up by the liberal press!

      • societyissick

        High ratings that were bought. Do some research on which cable TV shows spend the most money. It is apparent that get the news from other commenters on Discus and have no clue as to what is really news. You are like 3rd graders calling names and generally acting immature and unreasonable. Not all of society is sick, but the majority of commenters on Discus are.

        • Brhurdle

          Are you so naive that you don’t realize that FNC ratings are due to it serving the conservative audience (about 50% of the populace) while all the remainder (both cable and broadcast) compete for the remaining 50%.

          • liberalconservative

            Its a entertainment channel not a news channel. Even their boss would tell you that they are opinion news not real news. Telling people what they want to hear that they are a victim and its everyone else fault for their problems. Works every time with the weak minded to control them.

            • Brhurdle

              I sincerely hope you realize that any form of TV is a business with an objective of making a profit – there is no such thing as a “news channel” that exists with the noble objective of informing viewers of “facts”. I readily admit that FNC has a conservative bias and I consume their product since it fits my ideology. The marketplace also provides liberal biased outlets and I welcome their existence. Be honest and admit that all the handwringing about FNC is based on jealousy of their success – no one forces you to watch FNC rather then tuning in to MSNBC. I am also a dirty old man and enjoy looking at the ladies.

              • liberalconservative

                The problem is people believe what fox news says as the truth. How many fools believe Obama wasn’t born in America. Wait they heard it on fox news so it must be true. They have guest on their show and let them say anything without a rebuttal even knowing what is being said is a complete lie. If you want to be lied to that is fine but don’t debate and pretend to know what you are talking about when you heard it on fox news.

                • Brhurdle

            • societyissick

              Right you are. I, too, am a liberal conservative . I do NOT see everything as black or white as the youngsters who spew their hatred on Discus. Unfortunately these Discus conservatives see no middle ground and simply throw out terms like liberal, conservative, communists and socialists that they cannot even define. I think that there are enough people with the intelligence to see through Fox News so we, as a country, are not doomed to their tyranny yet.
              Obama not see these as major accomplishments. I disagree with Obama on abortion, gay rights and failing to call the Islamic terrorists what they are which is terrorists. Obama got us out of Iraq where Bush put us and Obama also steered us out of the recession Bush put us in in 2007. He is drawing down our troops from Afghanistan and had Osama and other terrorists leaders killed.
              These hate spewing youngsters on Discus will be the ones drafted if we get into a war with Russia or China, just as people my age (73) were drafted into a war that we should not have been in–Viet Nam. They won’t be so brave and loud if that happens.

              • StraghtGate

                No such thing. Decades ago, a self-described, “yellow dog Democrat” said this to me: “All you will find in the ‘middle of the road’ are dead armadillos and a YELLOW STRIPE!” He was correct.

              • liberalconservative

                If you agree with everything a politician does or a political party you are brainwashed. I disagree with many things no matter which party or leader is in office. The problem is that nobody wants to fix what is broken our political system. Obama is a moderate not a leftist so is Hilary. The problem is the right is now so far right they are corporationist. Money rules the bills in congress to pay back their donors.

            • StraghtGate

              Bull droppings! If you actually WATCHED Fox News, you’d see both liberal and conservative commentators expressing comments all over the political spectrum.

              • liberalconservative

                That would be like saying since MSNBC has conservatives on their show its fair and balance. So straightgate is MSNBC more fair and balance since they have more conservatives than fox has liberals? What changed your tune?

                • StraghtGate

                  Oh? Name some ‘conservatives’ who REGULARLY appear on MSNBC – or news shows of ABC, CBS, CNN or PBS? I’ve already named some of Fox ‘liberals’ (Alan Combs, Juan williams, Geraldo Rivera, Chris Wallace, etc.) who make up more than half of their commentators. Now, name yours…

                  • liberalconservative

                    Riveria? Wallace? Are not liberals. Williams is a moderate. Combs is a moderate too. MSNBC has Joe Scarborough and Micheal Steel the 2 top conservatives. I am still laughing that you consider Wallace a liberal. That is funny. SMH

                    • StraghtGate

                      Then in your fantasy world, there are NO liberals. Thanks for the big chuckle!

                      Download the names from Fox News and see the numerous other ultra-libs; a dozen or so. Incidentally, neither Scarborough nor Steel are REGULARS on your MSLNBC.

          • societyissick

            Right you are. And that conservative audience is filled with racists and war mongers.

            It’s not exactly “breaking news” to find out that Fox News is mostly comprised of
            misinformation or flat-out lies. Anyone with even a shred of common sense (that leaves you out, Brhurdle) can watch just a handful of their featured shows and see that the entire channel is nothing more than a propaganda mechanism for the Republican party.

          Well Politifacts is run/owned by Tampa Times. Therefore they are the same. In regards to their bias, you obviously have access to the inter web. Try googling “politifactbias” or “is politifact accurate”.
          Recently, they gave a false charge to Rubio after his assertion that Cap and Trade would “with certainty it would have a devastating impact on our economy.”
          It is fairly ridiculous that Politifact would call someone a liar for a prediction. You can have an opposing opinion but calling someone a liar for theirs is bogus.

            Why did you capitalize the “C” in “cable” and not capitalize the “R” in “Randi” genius? One of them is obviously a proper name, and the other – isn’t.

            • James Lavenburg

              I don’t know why I capitalized C. Just a typo I suppose. However “randi” does capitalize their own moniker so I shouldn’t either.

    • Danielmey

      So…they admit they cherry pick which stories to look at, and don’t look at news networks “evenly” (ie, probably look mostly at Fox”, yet this is still somehow news?

    • DJordan River

      Please tell us something we didn’t’ already know . Fox News have some of the dumbest viewing audience in this country .Most sit around all day on their sofa watching Fox news and begging other white peoples to GoFunMe.

      • Danielmey

        Might want to look at the story again. They admit they don’t look at the networks evenly (ie, probably look at Fox the most), and that they cherry pick which stories to look at. They specifically tell you its not accurate, yet you leap to its conclusion and hug it tight. Which news networks have the dumbest viewers?

        • Raymond Pelfrey

          FOX covers what the others won’t. That’s why they are #1.

          • Jake Grey

            As opposed to the liberal fascists of MSNBC?

      • MarryMeAnnie

        So your saying the majority of the population is stupid?……..I say this cause Fox news has the highest ratings…….

        • OhPlease

          The ratings are misleading. It’s usually background noise in public areas. Most people don’t even what the channel like that and i’ve talked to some real Republicans that can’t stand Fox news at all. I’ve been in auto shops, VA hospitals and restaurant chains were workers were told by owners or supervisors to keep the new channel on Fox. You also have to remember that most people are sheep and are too lazy to find out what’s real and what’s not. Fox and every major mainstream network have shareholders to please. Having shareholders mean they have to turn a profit so they will push forward with an agenda to bump ratings. It doesn’t have to be true…only conveyed by someone they feel looks trustworthy and believable.

          • MarryMeAnnie

            Polls are misleading…….not really ratings. Ratings I think are accurate. I think you mean cattle, not sheep.

            Cattle by the way is how the powers that be view the population in general .

            Easy to see this at the Airport. When they subject people to the humiliation of so called security measures that they take there . And the cattle line up and put up with it! When they really don`t have to!

      • Steven

        I watch fox, when I get home from work, which I do 8 hours a day 5 to 6 days a week in order to support my family. Very rarely do I sit all day on a sofa, and I don’t beg anyone for anything.

    • Billy Jordan

      I generally watch Fox News and, overall, after it’s all said and done, they have proven themselves to be correct or mostly correct. A few times, there have been incorrect things said—most recently, a story that Shepard Smith broadcast on his show just last week—but when the truth is found out, at least Fox immediately corrects the info, they apologize, and then move on, as Smith did a few minutes later right on his show last week. Honestly, the few times I’ve watched the other networks and heard something that was not quite the truth, I cannot recall one instance—WHEN I WATCHED—where it got corrected and they moved on; either this scenario or else the networks either said NOTHING about a situation, just ignored it, or else they basically read a headline but didn’t delve into the story. These things occur on a MORE THAN regular basis when it involves anyone with the last name of Obama or Clinton or their close affiliations. If anyone has either of those last names, they get a “hall pass” to move about the country without being asked to explain themselves ABOUT ANYTHING. That’s the truth.

      • Jarod Russell

        Did you not read the story above? It says the exact opposite of everything you just wrote. So, no, your post is not the truth.

        • Raymond Pelfrey

          The article is BS from 2 Liberal sources.

        • Danielmey

          @Jarod Did you not read the article above? They *specifically* tell you that they cherry picked which stories to study, and that they did not bother to look at the networks “evenly”. Meaning this study has virtually no basis for credibility.

        • Billy Jordan

          Mr. Russell, thank you for responding and, to answer your question, yes, I DID read the story. IF I agreed with it, why would I waste my time responding? Everything you read in MY post is true; I’ve seen and heard things with my OWN eyes and ears and, for the most part, they give viewers the truth. But that comment is about the news department, not the commentators. The commentators are, for the most part, reliable, but even I disagree with their COMMENTS from time to time. And, as I said in my post: when Fox commentators report something that is later found out to be not quite the truth, they are honest enough to correct themselves—and I have seen that happen a few times. But this joint effort by the Tampa Bay Times and Politifact is BIASED from the git-go! I know this because I live here in Florida and used to subscribe to the Times when they actually had some integrity. So this whole story is skewed from the start and, honestly, cannot be given any amount of consideration at all. Sorry that doesn’t gel with your opinion. You go ahead and keep on believing what you do, but the results from the election this past year should at least give you SOME hint as to what America believes right now.

            ( Leftist have been in control of the media for the longest time, dude! Don’t you know Fox is rather new! as networks go!

      “Fox News’ falsehoods gained particular notoriety in the wake of Islamic-extremist terrorist attacks in Europe earlier this year, when Fox began claiming that neighborhoods and even entire cities were off-limits to non-Muslims.”
      The above comment was not made by a member of the Fox News Team but rather, guest from England who was being interviewed and later recanted (after being bullied into it) what he was saying. However shortly after this several officials in France went public with similar statements about Muslim neighborhoods in France. BTW – The Muslim neighborhood in England where the young British soldier had his head hacked of was the type of neighborhood the Fox British guest was speaking of. Other than that and the on screen typo there are no facts given to back such a scurrilous claim.
      This article is erroneous and a hack attack by a pathetic excuse for a wanna-be website.

      • Jarod Russell

        “Fox News issued an unusual on-air apology
        on Saturday night for having allowed its anchors and guests to repeat
        the false claim that there are Muslim-only “no-go zones” in European
        countries like England and France that are not under the control of the
        state and are ruled according to Shariah law.

        The
        statement was referred to as “a correction” by the Fox Report host
        Julie Banderas, who said that “over the course of this last week, we
        have made some regrettable errors on air regarding the Muslim population
        in Europe, particularly with regard to England and France.””

        • Heartlandman

          “Pants On Fire’: Analysis Shows 60% Of Fox News ‘Facts’ Are Really Lies”
          Nice job digging for dirt Jarod. An error or a lie? And a correction was immediately released. NBC and MSNBC do this type of thing frequently and there is never a word said. Fox has been on the air nearly 19 years and this supposed story claims 60% of its content are lies? Better keep digging for the hundreds of thousands (if not millions) of examples you will need to support this outrageous claim made to appeal to liberals with strong emotions and few brains.

    • John Els

      Well there you go, conclusive proof that FOX quotes Liberals 60% of the time. So much for fair and balanced. I suggest dropping the Liberal viewpoint all together since it’s so incorrect so often…

    • disqus_BAvz0LV7zw

      FoxNews is the most reliable, and patriotic news outlets in the US media today. Most of the MSM spew lies and deceptions just like what the leftists do. MSNBC, CNN, Huffington, are mostly propaganda about liberal ideologies, praising Islam the cult religion. Fact is, Islam is not a religion but a political ideology of Mohammad that started about the 7th century, 622 AD. These liberal media are the tools and instruments why Muslims have multiplied so rapidly in the US even practicing their jihadists warfare in NY, where they had their sanctuary of Islamabad. There liberals and Muslims protect there radical plans against the US.

    • StraghtGate

      I suspect that leftist ‘Plitifact’ is the least accurate of all! The major leftist media gets ‘up front’ on national issues with big lies, knowing that Obamaites will fully embrace and perpetuate them! A perfect example are the black criminals that recently got themselves killed by police officers.

      • Jarod Russell

        Oh yeah, that 12 year old boy totally deserved to die…..

    • Chaz

      I wonder if that includes secondary lies. One face says something at 8AM and another cites it as an unnamed source at 1PM. Is that 2 lies or one?

    • Reese

      Assuming NBCs former anchor is the liberal’s poster boy for truth in reporting, why do ratings of the major networks continue to fall so fast? Why is CNBC about half what it once was – which as never much. Why has CNN fallen to irrelevance while Fox News grows or stays even? Hasn’t the New York Times reported such loss of circulation that it is now reporting a loss at the bottom line? And the Sox are not the only red in Boston, the liberal house organ Globe is off its axis financially. Me thinks this article is wishful thinking, but not at all fair and balanced…

      • Jarod Russell

        Why? You ask. It is because the conservatives like to be fed stories that agree with their worldview whereas liberals get their information from more than one source.

    • Dan Marchildon

      Does anyone read HuffPo? My God the errors, the lies, the silliness! Of course it is located in the editorials.

    • Dan Marchildon

      The question is: Is this “study” claiming news or pundits? There is a difference between a news anchor telling “lies” and O’Reilly or some other pundit yammering about politics. MSNBC has given up on news and is nothing but punditry whereas CNN still has decent headline news but still has the Leftist crowd yammering their brand of “truth.” Also, in a hurry to be the first network to report a story, agencies get issues confused, wrong and constantly issue corrections. Sometimes a news agency outright tries to sway opinion – I noticed the usual leftist droll about Fox but are silent on NBC’s “white Hispanic” and obvious editing of the Zimmerman case. Fox may not be right all the time, but CNN, ABC, CBS, PBR, are no better. When it comes to news it is almost better to go to foreign sources. Sad really. Don’t call the “other” agency a liar then defend your own propaganda office.

      • Jarod Russell

        MSNBC’s motto is: “The Place for Politics”. They are not a “news” organization like the one which claims to be “Fox News; Fair and Balanced”. Do you not see the difference? The article disappoints you and you lash out. The facts do not support your claims, though.

        • Dan Marchildon

          Lash out? I was very calm. At least you admit that MSNBC has surrendered any semblance of being news yet I see their links in almost every political chat. The article disappoints me because it reinforces a slanted view while ignoring the bigger issue – the “News.” Some Leftist yammer constantly about Fox while either ducking any conversation about NB “White Hispanic” C or defending news agencies that fit their beliefs. My issue is: Don’t point at Fox and their viewers and claim they are ignorant while watching incredibly examples of misleading and biased news from the Left. Wasn’t their a study that said some 80% of mainstream journalist were Left of center or registered Democrats?

        about the ongoing holocaust underway in south west asia right now.

        No one cheerleaded us into the idiot war on terror quite as much as FOX news did.
        I watched them lie and lie and lie. Over and over and over again.

        • StraghtGate

          ….now, that’s the biggest lie, yet bigot! Thanks for confirming my comments below. You do NOT watch Fox News so you haven’t a clue as to what is reported there. If you did, you’d know that more than half of its commentators are well-known leftists like Alan Combs, Juan Williams, Geraldo Rivera, Chris Wallace, and many others whose names can be downloaded from Fox’s website.

          • scott_ewing

            I don’t have my head clouded up by an idiot left-right paradigm – so drop the false distinctions that have been fabricated to distract and divide you as a population.

            I watch FOX news from 9/11 through to 2004 (until I couldn’t stand it anymore)
            and they were basically white house stenographers. No Fourth Estate in sight.

            They gave Bush II a TOTAL PASS on all his aggressive idiot foreign policies
            (which the obama administration has now taken to higher, more obscene levels)

            and FOX (and the other channels) let an unprovoked all out attack on South West Asia

            unfold completely unchallenged – all the while faithfully reporting the deceptive disinformation from the mouths of the press secretaries (Ari Flischer and the like)
            AS FACT – rather than the willfully distorted falsehoods that history has proved them to be.

            And people like you just went ahead and swallowed it all – hook, line and sinker.

            FOX also actively shouted down and smeared any critics of these policies

            – which were policies based completely on lies, if you recall.

            Intellectually dishonest pigs like Hannity and O’reilly have an unbelieveable amount of blood on their hands.

      Here is a fact. Fox News sued for the right to tell lies to their viewers, AND THEY WON !
      So why would anyone in their right mind choose to defend a corporation that’s determined to tell lies ? That’s just Ludacris.
      You Conservatives can try to spin that fact all day, but at the end of that day, Fox News is the only one that sued for the right to tell lies, AND YOU ARE DEFENDING THEM ? SERIOUSLY ?

      • Dan Marchildon

        Wow, even this article says that the “Fox sued to lie” is a myth, an urban legend.

        Here is the link to Snopes.com – and snopes.com is run by a bunch of leftists. Basically try reading the article.

        • Green Glory

          Dan, here is the link you are referring to, http://www.snopes.com/politics/business/foxlies.asp

          That article mainly argues about the date of the lawsuit and they try to separate the plaintive from Fox news, ( another lie). That is what conservatives always do, they try to defend incriminating facts by arguing a different subject. Also, Snopes in not a leftist website That is another lie that the corporate machine put out to defend and disguise their evil intent.

          Here in a Wiki page that tells of the real case, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jane_Akre

          Here is a fox news affiliate explaining the facts http://www.thomhartmann.com/bigpicture/thom-hartmann-why-fox-news-has-right-lie-us

          Now, would you like to tell the people why Fox News was banned in Canada ?

              Another thing Conservatives always do. whenever you present several facts that dispel their claims, they ignore them and laugh at one. They refuse to see certain facts, because those facts interfere with the way they choose to see the world. It’s called Cognitive Dissonance.

        Ummm….here’s a fact–this *very* article states that the belief “Fox sued for the right to lie” has already been proven untrue? Do you even read an article before commenting on it and believing it? SERIOUSLY?

        • Green Glory

          It does not say that at all. Out of dozens of websites that have proof that Fox news sued for the right to tell lies, under the first Amendment, only one, (Snopes), says the opposite.

          The fact is, ( and you can not wiggle your way out of the truth) The Corporation owned by Rupert Murdock also owns Fox News. They sued for the right to tell lies. They were able to win this lawsuit because Fox News is not really a news station, it is a corporate owned employee information and entertainment venue. The FCC does not hold them to the same standards as actual News networks, because they are not a news Network. Therefore, they have the freedom of speech to say whatever they want.
          I do not understand why you Conservatives continue to deny this truth. Everyone knows that Fox News tells lies all day, (it’s common knowledge in American). Fox News was banned in Canada because of this Lawsuit and their reputation for telling lies, (another indisputable fact). Fox News’s reputation for telling lies is not a myth, it is reality and you can not convince intelligent people that it is not, so give it up.

How STUPID is this! And Walmart is cooperating and some of their stores are going to be used as “processing centers?” This is going on in Texas!

            What were you saying about LIBERALS lying and not facing facts? GEEZE! Mann up and look at the GOP.

He hates the white race with a rage, and he hates anyone who doesn’t agree with his fascist ideals about how to run government. Obama is a ticking disaster waiting to explode on Americans in his last days as President. He will do as much damage with Executive orders as he can before he leaves office. If he doesn’t try to stay in power, I put nothing past Obama.

Fact check any progressive show and you will find out that they are all spot on with truth.

    • zizitsu

      Every rational American knows it to be the truth, that Fox is just the cipher for the current right-wing talking points put out be Roger Ailes, remember, he created the network in the first place to be the mouth piece for the republican party, one reason the goobers are always in the dark on current issues, is because they’re being spoon fed fantasy by the likes of Seal Six Bill O”Reilly, the ever Hysterical Sean Hannity and the blond bimbos whose main function is to decorate the set and keep the rubes glues to the tube. Every non-partisan study has shown Fox viewers to be the least informed of any viewing demographic. It’s not that they pretend to be stupid, it’s that they lack any analytical skills to decipher the truth and hence why they’re always on yahoo spewing the same inane remarks that have no basis in reality.

If your well read you really would know that a lot of their claims and facts are wrong, I mean rarely do they ever quote an actual source. By the way, a Republican led committee investigating Benghazi found that there was no one individual to blame, it was an unfortunate unprovoked attack. You’ll notice FoxPAC very rarely brings it up anymore.
        Why don’t you just admit it that like anyone else you watch it for all the “leg shots” that Fox makes sure are always front and center. By the way, besides Harris Faulkner and Juan Williams are there any other minorities on air for Fox? Just wondering.

        Where was your/their outrage when there were 13 U.S. embassy attacks resulting in 60 deaths when Bush was lying it up?

        Fox has been busted for so many lies. They even used video clips of other events in the background to try to get their agenda across. You don’t seem to realize that all the investigations have cleared Hillary and the President on Benghazi. You would know that if you turned off Faux and took the blinders off.

            June 14, 2002. Karachi, Pakistan. Suicide bomber connected with al-Qaida attacks the U.S. Consulate, killing 12 and injuring 51.

            October 12, 2002. Denpasar, Indonesia. U.S. diplomatic offices bombed as part of a string of “Bali Bombings.” No fatalities.

            September 17, 2008. Sana’a, Yemen. Terrorists dressed as military officials attack the U.S. Embassy with an arsenal of weapons including RPGs and detonate two car bombs.

When he lied us into a war to make his buddies richer while killing thousands of our troops? How about when Reagan sold weapons to our enemies and also gave them to Bin Laden for free? Do you still watch Faux News knowing that they are part owned by a Saudi prince? Or did Fox not tell how to think about these issues?

                “Anyone can play a video game” that being said, a drone strike is still military action. So is a smart bomb, a torpedo and a long range missile. Just because boots are not on the ground it does not mean it is not military action. You, yourself said you were in the Military yet you were in the Navy. You did not have your boots on the ground.

        I don’t watch TV anymore. For the very reason they mentioned here. That the majority of major news networks are willing to outright lie to you. Fox being the worst. I agree with their findings as it matches my experiences with the networks.

        The truth is the media tells you what you want to hear. You don’t want the truth. You want Obama bashing and pro-christian talk. So they give you that. Your happy. Advertisers are happy. The other channels know how to get your goad. They poke at your sore points to get you in an outrage. Doesn’t matter if you are happy with the content or outraged at it. YOU ARE STILL WATCHING IT!

        If you don’t understand how the media works, read the article again, then read all the comments you posted.

          You’re missing the point of my post. It was a biased study, nothing but bullshit by punditfact. Just a reason to get a bold print headline bashing a network based on admitted horseshit. I never mentioned what I personally thought of any network news outlets. I will say that punditfact ought to go back to school.

          • Unrepentant Atheist

            Well considering they gave bad ratings to the left media too, I don’t think that makes them biased. Most people here hear that Fox is being pointed out assume that it is a “fake” article. I personally would like to see a more thorough study done on this subject, because I would love to have a news station that did not have a much bias as we have in today’s news.

            They were pretty transparent about their methodology and said it was NOT to be taken as a statistical fact. However their sampling does show a tendency of falsehood that should not be so even if they were cherry picking the stories they researched. That is what should be gotten out of this article. Not who’s on what side, and why it is wrong to pick on one network or another.

            I’m not a fan of Fox because many of their representatives do not even hide their bias. I say that being conservative on many issues. But I have little faith in most of the news outlets to get me the important stories in a truthful manner.

      Sorry, but “Mint Press News” is hardly an arbiter of “truth”. “Fox News” is mainly opinion about “news”, so is MSNBC, and for that matter, NBC, CBS and ABC, (CNN is worthless) and opinion is just that, not fact, opinion. Mint Press likewise is not about news either, but the bottom line is, Fox is the most watched cable “news” organization. So, they will continue in this venue as long as they make so much MONEY!!!

        • Lloyd

          Exactly! CNN watchers more informed than Fox news viewers on average, but if you want better news, dump the cable networks and go with NPR. It beats them all. Always look at other outlets to get a feel for the issue, but NPR is generally more thoughtful and informative, and has much better depth and context than cable news outlets. It is not 24hrs per day and they don’t have to make the news up in order to have something to say. They do a better job of reporting on truly important issues and providing background that cable news does not. They are not focused on images since they are radio, and they add background information instead of focusing on sensational pictures to get your attention.

    • El_Guitarrista

      Since most of America, by admission, is “Christian”, it may be apropos, here, to quote a verse from their Holy Book (Holy Bible) sort how Muslims do with the Koran.
      Since, I presume, FOX’s employees that anchor “Journalistic” shows are Christian or anyone else, please react to John 8:44 and meditate on its message.
      “You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies.”

      • Mike

        Satan is also described as the *accuser*. go figure.

        • El_Guitarrista

          @michaelleadixon:disqus I give you a thumbs up on account you stated correctly. As far as “Go Figure” I already have. That’s the reason for my posting John 8:44. While “Accusers” have been known to lie, such as Satan is related doing in the Bible book of JOB, my quote shows Jesus explaining that, in order to have God’s approval, one cannot knowingly be a liar. The Bible teaches, “God does not lie.” Furthermore, both Demos & Repubs claim to worship the same god. And the article points out whose the biggest liar. God’s Word gives no license for the “Less Liars” to indulge in lying. Don’t be misled. Thanks.

      • societyissick

        IN JOHN 8:44 Jesus was giving characteristics of the devil. Your misunderstanding of the Bible is reason enough for you NOT to quote it. Meditate on that, El_Guitarrista.

        • El_Guitarrista

          @societyissick:disqus While the context of my quote was directed to a certain group of Jews, the premise of physical and verbal actions remain. YOU (as those Jewish compatriots of Jesus) miss His point. God does not lie. Jesus does not lie. You claim to be Jesus follower? Lying is not an option for you. If you practice lying, then John 8:40-44 applies to you and other liars excusing themselves via protectionism. Simple. Meditate on that SIS.

          • societyissick

            As I said before, the verses in John to which you refer are descriptions of the characteristics of Satan. Yes, I do study the Bible and suggest you do the same and get some help understanding it. . I m not lying. Perhaps you aren’t either. But you certainly did not get the point of John 8:40:44. Just as neither the Jews who precipitated the crucifixion of Christ nor the Roman gentiles who carried the crucifixion out got the point that Jesus was the Messiah. You seem about 2 sandwiches short of a picnic. Meditate on that EG.

            • El_Guitarrista

              @societyissick:disqus, Study the Bible? You? and I’m not? I’ve been trying to have a decent discussion with you but all you do is attack me. Some of Satan’s characteristics are clearly defined in John. Humans can and DO emulate those same characteristics. Those imitating Satan are NOT from God but Satans’ followers. Accept that or not will not change anything. Jesus telling the Jews if they lie, they have Satan as their father. Since YOU can’t see the truth behind THAT, I don’t condemn you. Jesus has. You and your zeal has lost it’s way. The Jews of Jesus day new he was the Messiah. The religious leaders and pundits of the day also knew but had their own agenda. Israel rejected God’s appointed and anointed King. God rejected Israel as well and to this day Israel has no god except the one they have made up.

      • Steven C. Douglas

        In 2007, more than 78 percent of Americans said they practiced some form of Christianity. Today, in apparently the lowest figure in US history, 70.6 percent identify as Christians, according to a new Pew study.

      • Tim Sheldon

        42 Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love me, for I came from God and I am here. I came not of my own accord, but he sent me. 43 Why do you not understand what I say? It is because you cannot bear to hear my word. 44 You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies. 45 But because I tell the truth, you do not believe me.

        • El_Guitarrista

          @timsheldon:disqus, your quote expands on my post. Jesus is teaching his listeners. The premise is that a lover of God not only says he loves God but proves it. In this case by not being a LIAR such as Satan. Since Jesus accurately identifies the ‘Father” of the lie and you lie, then you are Satan’s children obeying him implicitly. Not good. Thanks for your input.

      • mfd doc

        Interesting that you use a quotation from the book of John, which of course is a direct quotation from Christ as he spoke to the Jewish Leaders, who by the way would later kill him for this and other things they found offensive to them and thier religion, you are using it to somehow indict those who work at Fox,(they like all of us are under the direction of Exodus:20;16, so we need no further Biblical evidence of “lies” as a “sin”) as if they are the only ones who regularly misrepresent the truth on cable and network news programs, but you ignore the next verse, 45, which applies to you(and all of us), quoting: “And because I tell you the truth, and you believe me not”.

        • El_Guitarrista

          @mfddoc:disqus, I appreciate your laying out some ground work of John 8:44’s context. That’s good, clear writing. Thank you.
          Hopefully, I wish not to sound trite, but I detect a tad of anger (or is it discontent) in your reply to me.
          we are discussing an article that claims to be factual. We, the readers, take out what interests us, right? I, being a sinner, am condemn to death for being such. Therefore it’s of interest to me how others (like those in the article) can claim to love God (which the Bible says does not lie) and knowingly, willingly (for $$$) do it in the course of their day.
          One can not help but see that your citing Ex. 20:16 is a good quote.
          Since the worlds founding, people have abused others and many have been incarcerated- even murdered via false testimony sanctioned by religious leaders.
          It happened in Jesus day. It happened during the Inquisition. It happened to Galileo. It happened to many a fair maiden after the May Flower’s voyagers set up camp in the New World. It happened in our civil war, WWI – WWII and it’s happening right now.
          If you don’t practice lying, you need not worry. Thanks.

          • mfd doc

            Nope, no anger, not even a “tad”. I actually appreciate the opportunity to discuss the Bible, if it is an honest discussion, and I thank you for that opportunity.
            “Apostate” religious leaders, especially those who claim to know what is correct for other people, should be ignored. Read the Bible for yourself, do not rely on others to interpret it for you.

      There you go!

      • Fred K

        Bingo. One wonders the political orientation of the fact-checkers. I do not doubt for a minute that their fact-checking is accurate (too easy to call them on it) but WHAT you check is as important as HOW you check it. Nothing easier for left-leaning “journalists” than to research the more outrageous Fox statements that are likely errors, prove them to be so, and then make claims of bias on the part of Fox. Just to seem neutral, you pick a more balanced scorecard of MSNBC “reporting,” find the errors and lies (like shooting fish in a barrel with those clowns) and claim to be unbiased.

        Balderdash. I watch them all, and no doubt Fox is proud to be a counterweight, and selects stories in a way that advances conservative thinking and points out liberal failings. If, however, you did a fair, random survey, you would find Fox’s errors and misleading reporting to be significantly less than all the other networks save CNN (which still displays a subtle liberal bias but is pretty objective for the most part). I believe it has been done by some academics and the results are in line with my observations…

        Also, Fox is actually more likely to issue corrections than the other networks — a good example of at least trying to be factual in its reporting…

      Pathetic.

      • red, white, & bLuke

        Journalism is not about progressive-activism. The problem is FOX News manipulates truth to what it’s viewers want it to be rather than hurt their feelings.

        • Arcanek

          The media blathers whatever their paymasters wants them to blather about. The illusion of choice in media is just the choice of which programming the gullible are willing to accept.

          • red, white, & bLuke

            That’s reasonable, I don’t think that most media/journalists behave that way, but you’re on to something. It’s kind of like how a laissez-faire government in the same society as leviathan corporations gives many people the impression of more free agency, while they’re actually being oppressed more by the corporations than they would be if they used their government to regulate corporate abuses.

        • miagear

          Not to say that Fox News is exempt from an occasional mistake (all news is), but to say that they deliberately “lie” is simply ridiculous.

          With all of the scrutiny from the MSM of Fox, if there were a REAL issue, I’m sure it would be headline stories on all of the news networks, NYT, etc….

          • red, white, & bLuke

            A manipulation isn’t always a lie, it is telling a story in a way that would be more receptive to a certain audience (you see this with how children and their parents communicate most often). It is a REAL issue but it goes ignored by conservatives, because they can point to the 40% of stuff and say, “They were right about this, the other stuff must be true.” The problem with FOX is that their manipulations take on several forms and are often layered. (1) They choose news stories that aren’t really news and make them news. (2) They continue to cover certain stories even after no evidence has been found to support the premise. (3) They disguise opinion as fact, O’Reilly and Megan Kelly are the best at this. (4) They cover certain topics with more frequency to give the impression that the story is bigger than it is. (5) They tell outright mistruths (but this is only a fragment and the least used of their manipulations). (6) The vast majority of their host personalities are conservative (this is indisputable). (7) When they portray liberals the token liberal invited to a discussion is often sickly or weak in either appearance or demeanor, often both (think Alan Colmes). (8) Their slogan is “Fair and Balanced” (if so, why do they need to say it so much? Does any other news organization say, “The truth and nothing but the truth?” or “The news you can’t get elsewhere because they’re a bunch of cheats?”) FOX uses it’s slogan to imply that every other network is the manipulators, and they are clean. No other network does this, it just doesn’t happen, because when you perform good journalism the facts and truth reveal itself. That’s why the other networks almost always agree and FOX often does not. FOX is excellent at rhetoric. FOX News is very interesting to study.

        • willie5

          And I suppose you are a regular viewer of Fox.

          • red, white, & bLuke

            I am a fairly regular FOX News viewer, I just don’t always buy what they’re selling. I’m also a regular viewer of all other major news organizations. I like CBS Evening News, prefer ABC’s This Week Sunday show, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow is top notch, MSNBC’s Morning Joe has the best guests, ABC’s 20/20 has good variety of investigative journalism on social issues, Bloomberg has two of the best pundits in Heilman and Halperin. The only three people at FOX that are worth a damn are Megan Kelly, Shep Smith, and Chris Wallace–even though Wallace’s show suffers because of FOX’s bias.

        • Mikeyprissy

          What the devil are you smoking? Now Fox is attempting to not hurt feelings? Sure seems they hurt yours. Try again. That balloon didn’t fly.

          • red, white, & bLuke

            Then how do you explain the differences in how they cover the same stories as other networks? A couple examples: (1) The morning after the Baltimore riots began the news banners on CNN, CBS, and MSNBC all read something like “Riots in Baltimore,” the FOX News banner read “Police Under Attack.” (2) The other networks don’t talk about Benghazi much anymore because there is no evidence that has proven malfeasance after multiple congressional hearings and investigations. Benghazi is still a staple story on FOX News, only because it has to do with Hillary Clinton and they are trying to abase her candidacy.

            • Mikeyprissy

              You have to be kidding me! Hillary Clinton has abased herself more than any news program could ever in this wide world think to abase her. The police in this country are under attack. Benghazi is not over because Hillary is a master at evasion and lying. Four of our citizens died in Benghazi for no good reason and I expect if you were one of the family members you would want the truth told sooner or later. Yu see, there is more than one way of seeing the world. It is just that you left wing blind as bat brain dead suckers for lies and deceit do not have the capacity to see anything other than what you are fed by MSNBC and such.

              • JD

                Let’s work on how 4,000 of our citizen soldiers died in Iraq. Actually, we know the truth and it turns out that no one in our corrupt government is interested.

    • anon3232

      so fox lies 60% of the time, 21% mostly false, 31% completely false, and 9% blatant lies. first what’s the difference between a blatant lie and completely false? Second, CNN has 80% that were deemed at least half true, which means they are somewhere between 0% and 50% false or lies. so that means 20% is fully a lie, and somewhere between 0-80% are only quarter to half lies. sounds to me like they lie quite frequently. glad that they didn’t break down any of the other news sources the way they broke down fox’s stories. just another biased article trying to place shame on someone else to cover up their own falsehoods.

    • Point45_ACP

      I love the caption that they used to prove their point. Yes, we agree that an air strike would be considered military action but when you have an Administration that considers military action “boots on the ground”, the caption is factual. But when you have Susan, who never served her country in Uniform and Barack, who never served his country in Uniform and Valeria, who never served her country in Uniform…and you will have poor choices of language when dealing with the military. Any news program who allows Leslie Marshall to say anything in a “fair and balanced debate” must be fairly unbiased as she is really unbalanced herself. As Terry says, what about the fact checkers??? Perhaps we need a neutral French judge?????

      Even the highlighted example is actually just an example of how this article itself distorts things. I’m sure if you could hear the audio, it would explain that the US has conducted airstrikes, but the coalition has not conducted ground operations (as of the story’s date). The two claims were probably not inconsistent at all, although the story seems to be claiming they were both false. The wording could have been done differently, but intelligent people understand the content. Other people just continue to believe that all of Hillary’s emails were personal and that Benghazi was a protest against a video.

        • DirtDiver

          just because they don’t tell you what you want to hear and they speak in complete sentences does not make them liars..mmkay

          • DMICH

            Just because they tell you what you want to hear doesn’t make them truthful…mmkay.

            • Mikeyprissy

              Doesn’t make them liars either.

            • Wayne

              If they told me only what I wanted to hear, there would be no Democrats talking out of their rear end. Lord knows that’s not the case, there are numerous of them on the channel every day preaching their love of socialism, Obama and the Clintons.

          • Mikeyprissy

            Any time you tell a brain washed liberal something they do not want to hear you are a liar.

        • willie5

          You must be a regular viewer in order to make that assumption.

      “We use our news judgment to pick the facts we’re going to check…”

      I’m done.

    • Joe E Hatcher

      as the replublicans say, repeat a lie ten times and it becomes the truth.

      • DirtDiver

        if that were true the Democrats would not still be controling the KKK’

      • willie5

        Obama and Bill Clinton have taken that advice to heart. We don’t know about Mrs. Clinton since she refuses to talk unless she is in a controlled environment.

      • Wayne

        Sounds more like the motto of MSNBC to me.

    • lainer51

      MSPMS has lost more than half of their so-called show hosts due to lies. Gee, imagine that?

      • Terry

        MSNBC doesn’t know the meaning of the word fact.

        • lainer51

          but they sure do know the meaning of fugly.

    • savant

      Liberal source….No credibility….

    • duke_mantee

      I used to think the paranoid conspiracy theory about lizard men from the Moon was hogwash. Then I saw Ann Coulter. I’m so sorry crazy conspiracy people. You were right.

      Also, too, I think his Adam’s apple is protruding more now that she’s aging…and not so gracefully, I might add…

      • Wayne

        Rather than rebut her opinions, you decide to take the classy route of calling her names and insult her appearance. Way to go duke.
        Also, if you bothered to do some checking, Ms Coulter goes on all three of the big cable news channels, not just Fox.

    • Dave Tindall

      Fox News lies, I am shocked to find this fact, shocked I say!

      • Jon Finch

        Punditfact warns that these scorecards are based only on analysis of
        selected claims, not a statistically accurate survey: “We use our news
        judgment to pick the facts we’re going to check, so we certainly don’t
        fact-check everything. And we don’t fact-check the five network groups
        evenly.”

        says everything you need to know about this hillarious article.

        • Terry

          agree, totally a lie, the whole damn article.

        • DirtDiver

          epic
          epic

      • Vincent Mileto

        If Fox News lies 60% of the time, then MSNBC lies 100% of the time! Shocking!

      • Terry

        That’s cause you are a liberal democrat and wouldn’t know a truth if it hit you in the face.

    • Peter Constantine

      The Fox News audience is largely made up of older people on social security and medicare.

      • Terry

        now their is a stereotype if I ever saw one and you democrats accuse the republicans of generalizations. Oh I forgot it only matters if it doesn’t agree with you.

      • drwho2

        That is BS they have a larger 25-49 demo than the other two put together!

      • DirtDiver

        that cant be true because the GOP and FOX are throughing granny off a cliff..right? No now go home and write I will not be an ignorant uniformed liberal 10 times

      • virginia wino

        Not true. If it was, what is your point?

      • willie5

        Do you have statistics to back that statement up.

    • duke_mantee

      FAUX is listed as an “entertainment” network, problem is their followers are too ignorant to recognize it and since they benefit greatly from that they aren’t inclined to admit it or do anything to ruin the illusion..

    • Jake

      Uhh DUH! Fox “News” isn’t news, it’s a network built to satisfy the fantasies of white conservative males who don’t want to watch their worldviews being criticized but rather praised. It’s a place where the average conservative can validate their irrational dislike for immigrants, liberals, blacks, gays and validate their sexist views. All males on Fox are predominantly old white guys, 3/4 of them are overweight; so basically Fox News represents their demographics, average-looking American white male between the ages of 40 and 70. The other pundits on Fox are predominantly young and pretty ladies the kind who don’t watch Fox News to begin with, but does-satisfies the fantasy that old white men like to see on TV; to top it off many of the women claim on Fox that they don’t mind the cat calls and sexist views which only validates the typical white conservative male viewer’s fantasy about the world. Fox viewers believe because “their show” is watched more than MSNBC or CNN that this somehow validates it. Well that’s like saying more people watch Honey Boo Boo re-runs than Fox News therefore that-show must be more valid than Fox? Actually they’re about the same in terms of entertainment value. If 1.77 million people watch Fox News in America at any given time…it means that 298+ million viewers aren’t. So that means a whooping 0.05% of America watches Fox news…hardly validation for its views.

      • Jon Finch

        You opened your mouth and crap came out.

      • Annunaki

        What would happen without Fox News? There would be no checks on the one-sided Media that supports the Democratic Admin..
        Any rational thinking person should see the need for an alternative. All the others are the same.

        • Joey Brenner

          They are not considered “checks” if they need to lie to make a point. It is really still just a lie.

          • Annunaki

            So you’d rather not know the 40% that is truth?

            • Joey Brenner

              How does one know what the 40% truth is? The “one sided media” you speak of is Fox News.

              I have to ask. If they have to lie to make their ideological point, do you really think the point is valid?

              • Annunaki

                Well how do you know that the 60% is a lie? Goes both ways. Their reporting is much more truthful than the others who sit in the Democrat’s lap.

                • Joey Brenner

                  I believe the point of the article asserted Fox News lies 60% of the time. I watch enough of this network to know they do lie, twist and spin to fit and agree with those who watch.

                  Again, if Fox News has to lie about a story to fit their ideology, why would anyone consider them anything more than entertainment? They certainly are not journalists.

                  • Annunaki

                    I agree that they lie, but the fact is, I think they lie much less than other mainstream news outlets.How many scandals and lies would we not know about if not for Fox? The others damn sure won’t report it because they are in the pockets of the Democrats.

                    • Joey Brenner

                      Please cite the “mainstream news outlets” in the pockets of Democrats and who is paying them to lie.

                      • Annunaki

                        ABC, CBS, CNN, NBC–
                        George Soros, Michael Bloomberg, Warren Buffett, George Lucas, Bill Gates, Charles Schwab how many you want?

                      • Joey Brenner

                        Can you please cite what news outlet(s) Warren Buffet, George Lucas, Bill Gates and Charles Schwab are associated with? See, this is where you lose credibility. This would be like me bringing up the Koch Brothers or Adelson as “mainstream news outlets.”

                        I am not aware of a conviction or a suit brought against the networks for being “in the pockets of Democrats and who is paying them to lie.”

                        Please cite the suit or the claim. I would like to research it.

                      • Annunaki

                        ABC News–George Stephanopoulos.

                      • Joey Brenner

                        Just when I think the right wing can’t possibly get any more bizarre, i get a post like this. According to you, George Stephanopoulos is “in the pockets of Democrats” which says he is being compensated by Democrats to perpetuate lies.

                        The anchor donated money to the Clinton Foundation, not the other way around. The Clinton Foundation is not paying him nor are the Clinton’s. You can listen to Fox News attempt to draw lines between the media and Democrats but in the end, the lines are blurred by Fox News. Mike Huckabee was an employee of Fox News and is actively campaigning for President. Talk about being in ones pocket. Palin was a commentator, Romney was paid. Come on. Be somewhat realistic.

                      • Annunaki

                        Yeah, I’m aware of the details. Just supporting my point that the majority of news outlets favor the Democratic Party.

                      • Joey Brenner

                        You do realize there are more than one or two news outlets I hope. Wait, my mistake, you only watch Fox News and consider that a news organization. Citing one network with a ridiculous example is just laughable. I asked you for examples of the “majority of news outlets favor the Democratic Party” and that was the best you can come up with.

                      • Annunaki

                        You would have the same response if I cited 20.

                      • Joey Brenner

                        If you tried to use the example of someone being paid by the Democrats like George Stephanopoulus, yes. That was ridiculous. He CONTRIBUTED the money to the charity, he did not receive money from the Clinton’s or the Democrats.

                        Your example of ABC does not hold water. No examples of biased stories against conservatives, no examples of bias towards liberals.

                        All you seem to have are Fox News talking points with no facts. Pretty easy to discredit really.

        • red, white, & bLuke

          It is obvious there is nothing anyone could say to change your mind. It’s not about honest debate and persuasion anymore because many conservatives would never believe anything the vast majority of educated people say like scientists, economists, historians, and journalists. But the media should check administrations equally. Only FOX piles on Democrats harder, while the other outlets are much less biased either way.

          • Annunaki

            Have you ever watched Chris Matthews? Check him out..

            • Wayne

              Just Chris Mathews? Click on that channel anytime, day or night (well, not the weekends, prison stories are more important than the news) and it sounds like a DNC meeting.

              • Annunaki

                I agree.

      • Terry

        You guys just can’t accept the fact that fox is the most believed network and as usual you use your racist crap in your arguments.

      • Vincent Mileto

        We could say the same thing happens about Secure boarders, 60 million murdered babies, a a balanced budget, the right to defend ones, the sanctity of marriage that can reproduce, etc. at MSNBC, CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS, the New York times, the LA Times, the current left wing socialist nut job administration, 99% of Hollywood, 99% of universities, oh and lets not forget unions! especially public sector! Also the source is left wing and the method faulty! You have no argument. You lose! A former liberal!

      • virginia wino

        The old white over weight guy you must be talking about is Bob Beckel

          • Wayne

            He is indeed in rehab but it is from having back surgery.

    • Craig Russell

      Uh oh. Truth Police?? HANDS UP, DON”T SHOOT!!!

    • Wake

      I would probably agree with that assessment of 60% lies from Fox. But that still is better than the 99% lies from MSNBC.

      • WarRoom92

        Guess you can’t read either…

        • David Green

          WarRoom92 – you apparently can’t read either. Near the end of the article you’ll find this “And we don’t fact-check the five network groups evenly.” That pretty much destroys any attempt to make a comparison between the networks.

          • WarRoom92

            Wasn’t making an attempt to compare, just pointing out that Wake’s 99% comment was ridiculous.

      • Vincent Mileto

        No, 100% lies!

        • Wake

          Vince – they usually get the subject correct, It’s just all of the facts pertaining to the subject that they purposely lie about.

    • Lester Shearhart

      If you only had a mind of your own.. Keep in step with the powers that be on the left. That is why the left has only one person running for President, they would all look alike and sound alike. Be afraid if you ask questions, you may be the next one to get the personal attacks. What difference does it make.. You know how it is when you have 3 mortgages and you leave the White House broke..

      • Sal Tessio

        There are at least four and likely 6 people running on the Dem side.

        • Wake

          You aren’t playing with a full deck are you? If the primary if a foregone conclusion to the media there are no other runners.

        • virginia wino

          Correction: Bernie boy is a socialist.

          • Sal Tessio

            But he usually caucuses with the dems, so you can count him as a primary challenger to Hillary

        • Wayne

          Who might these 4 to 6 be that are serious? You have Clinton and Sanders of coarse but Biden, Webb and O’Malley can’t make up their mind and Warren says she isn’t going to run. Who else is there?
          Do you really think any of them have the kahones to take on the Clinton machine? If you remember, around the time President Clinton was Governor of Arkansas, people have come up “missing” when they crossed them.

          • Sal Tessio

            O’Malley is announcing tomorrow. Chafee has essentially announced and Webb is going to run as well. Plus Bernie. That’s 4.

        It is so convenient to just throw out any story you don’t like by labeling it “leftist”. Sure, you aren’t going to believe anything that criticizes FOX because you’re completely brainwashed. This is America and you have the right to be completely fooled. It’s your choice.

        • Mikal Gastpipe

          Said the brainwashed, kool-aid drinking JD! What I’d LOVE to know is this: Were the ‘facts’ they found that were ‘wrong’, did the ‘facts’ originate from someone’s OPINION or were they reported AS A FACT in a news story? Liberals, I have found, do NOT know the DIFFERENCE between NEWS and someone’s OPINION! NONE! ZIP! ZILCH! NADA! To you guys and gals on the left, as long as it’s ON FoxNews, then it’s ALL news, which, OF COURSE, it is NOT! So, YEAH, I do NOT trust the source WITHOUT the details! In EITHER CASE, in a 24 hour news cycle, SOME stories will ORIGINALLY be reported wrong, no matter WHO the news organization is! That’s when CORRECTIONS are noted, except when you’re MSNBC!

        • Terry

          you mean fooled like you liberals. You have such honest people running, like Hilary; Oh I forgot she doesn’t know how to tell the truth. She just refuses to talk about anything that would prove she lies and she deletes or hides all evidence and by some miracle it shows up later. I don’t know how those travel records got there, yuck yuck.

      • moob_rex

        How about you just watch Fox news once and look for the lies, you will see most of it is a lie and you can open your tard eyes to whats actually happening in the world.

        • Terry

          I watch it every day and I don’t see any lies. When they make a mistake they own up to it not like the other networks.

        • Vincent Mileto

          Your the Queen of Denial!

        • Wake

          I see political agendas and not lies. But the FOX agenda is NOTHING like MSNBC that simply doesn’t report anything detrimental to the left and trumpets each and every Conservative failure.
          Oh yeah, and after almost 7 years in office it’s still not Obama’s fault – it’s Bush’s.

          • moob_rex

            Yes Bush gets blamed for alot, but he is responsible for collapsing the economy, getting us into Iraq which destabilized the region and lead us to where we are today, along with many other atrocities he committed

            • Wake

              Again we have someone that screams panic when he hasn’t even bothered to look at the reports from the Treasury Department.

              The FACT is that Bush was one of the most conservative spenders since Reagan and not only did he balance the budget after 9/11 but for his first six years in office only spend about a trillion and a half over budget and almost entirely because of 9/11. There WAS a 9 month recession that only took the unemployment rate to about 7% but that was gone by the time that the Democrat Congress came in within TWO years they had doubled that Debt Held by the Public.

              What’s more when it finally looked like Obama was a shoo-in unemployment shot through the roof and sure enough within the first three years Harry Reid did not allow ANY budgets to cross the floor of the Senate and Obama with a free hand DOUBLED the Debt Held by the Public and printed so much money that the dollar was devalued for the first time in history not once but twice.

              Bush may have made errors but NOT ONE SINGLE ONE that he is most often blamed for.

              • moob_rex

                apparently you read the wrong books and don’t have a clue how he almost killed the american economy.

                • Wake

                  Apparently you can’t read at all – I said the REPORTS FROM THE DEPARTMENT OF THE TREASURY. Or are you telling us that Obama’s own government is out to get him?

        actually they provide the news and the democrats hate the real news; after all they believe it when Bill says, “It depends on what the meaning of is is. ha ha, you guys are hopeless.

      All “news” stations lie or stretch the truth to further their narrative. It’s all about ratings and money from those advertising on their stations. Unfortunately, people do not care and will watch whatever trash is on just to be entertained.

    • Travis Decker

      CNN, MSNBC, FOX, etc… are all just infotainment on the same level as the Daily show and Bill Maher. IT is stupid to just pick on Fox News and it shows your bias.

      • JD

        The other major networks were mentioned; FOX is the worst; those are just facts.

        • Terry

          They are not facts, they are some liberal hack groups opinion on what the facts are. Like the US is not bombing ISIS; I believe this happens to be a very true statement, even the damn generals talk about the number of bombing sorties have been done against ISIS. This just proves your fact checkers are clue less.

          An independent study! Not a left wing study with a flawed method!

                I can’t speak for these “liberals” you are referring to but as for me, I tend to discount any media that has to lie to further it’s agenda.

                If Fox News has to lie to fit it’s ideology, why would you make excuses and deflect for them? Why would you believe what they say? You look foolish spreading the lies Fox News feeds you.

                • Annunaki

                    What “attack”? You made false claims and assertions. Please cite the source and article that claims MSNBC lies 80% of the time.

                    You also have no factual basis to dispute the assertion from “mintpressnews” but since it goes against your ideology, you dismiss it. If you dismiss it, please cite the source and piece that claims the “mintpressnews” is inaccurate.

          I agree!!! Try asking a “tea party” person, under who’s regime did this country almost go down to a depression and under who’s Presidency was this country saved? Welcome to reality “tea party” person!

          • Terry

            If this is saved I would rather go down. I lived pretty damned good under Bush. If O’bama would have let the bankruptcy laws take the course they should have we would have been out of this crappy economy a long time ago.

        Sure, as soon as you do it for CNN, MSNBC and all the other so called “mainstream News organizations”

        • WarRoom92

          Please stop lumping cable news in with the Associated Press, BBC, or NPR. Those are mainstream, REAL news organizations. MSNBC, CNN, and FOX are not in the same business. Stop equating them– you just look stupid.

          • Neil.Verea

            You wouldn’t know real news if it were staring you in the face.

Step 2 watch FOX News for a “Fair and Balanced” report on News. 3. Start voting Republican. After a few cycles of this you should be cured, minion.

To recover use of your senses will require going cold turkey to get off the Radical so called “Main Stream” media (CNN, NPR, Democracy Now, MSNBC, etc.), emails and roundtables of the pelosi/reid/Obama and Democrats as a whole for a year to completely detox. Afterwards a slow entry to the News starting with Wall Street Journal, The Economist and the like.

        I do every day and they stand up damn well. Of course you are probably counting Hannity, O’rielly and Greta as the news. You don’t know the difference between opinion television and the news that’s the real problem. Just like I don’t consider Al Sharpton and Ed as the news, I realize they are opinion television. You guys need to not be such haters.

    • VicioousAlienKlown

      If they can get a pretty face to “comment” on the news and “report” on stories then there will always be problems. Money influences news and the need for entertainment really taints the integrity of reporting. This is beyond making mistakes, outright lies is to manipulate people so a few can get away with crimes. Doesn’t really matter if it’s a republican or democrat anymore. If you want real change then vote independent or put your self on the damn ballot.

      • Arcanek

        Voting changes nothing. If you need someone to tell you what to do, you’re lost. They control who gets on the ballot. They ‘count’ the votes. The only change voting accomplishes is the face of who is holding the gun to your head.

        • VicioousAlienKlown

          The problem is Washington itself corrupts anyone that comes in to do some change.

          • Arcanek

            They only let corrupt people in. That’s the nature of politicians. They can’t mind their own business.

            • Terry

              You vote them in, if you don’t like them run for office yourself. It kills me that people don’t vote then cry about what they get. If you want it better get off your butt and participate.

              • Arcanek

                I don’t vote anyone in,and you can’t prove anyone else does, either. They determine who gets on the ballot in the first place, where the polls are located and who counts the votes. The whole system is rigged. They declared themselves to be government. It was never voted on inthe first place. Purely fiat. They used or threatened to use force to gain and maintain their hegemony. Get off your butt and educate yourself. You have been schooled. http://www.thetruthaboutthelaw.com

                • Terry

                  Schooled by a fool, you conspiracy guys make me laugh. If you were educated you would know how people are elected. Anyone can run and anyone can win. Just cause you are to damn lazy to participate doesn’t make your wacco ideas fact.

                  • Arcanek

                    I do know how they are elected. I suppose you think you can vote for the president.

                  • Arcanek

                    None of what I wrote was theory. And you have presented nothing to dispute it. Not anyone can run. There are constituttional requirements. You probably think you can vote for the president.

                    • Terry

                      I know I vote for President through my representative in the electorall college. That’s why it is called representative government.

                      • Arcanek

                        You vote for an elector. The elector is not obliged to honor your vote. How can the system be considered representative given the nature of the electoral college? How can it be considered representative when you have a single representative for an entire legislative district unless the entire poulation was unanimous, or at least nearly so?

        • jim barta

          Voting in a two-party system is an exercise in futility. It can be compared to several life events-TO WIT:
          1.) Playing a game of strip poker with a riverboat gambler (AKA politician) as the dealer. Not only does he deal from the bottom of the deck, but he always keeps all of the aces up his sleeve. You will always end up in an em-bare-assing position.
          2.) Playing a game of Russian roulette where you are the only player, and all of the chambers are loaded. There is no hope for survival.
          3.) Playing a game of thermo-nuclear warfare (with fully armed missiles) against the computers at NORAD. The only way to win is to NOTPLAY THE GAME!
          4.) Buying a single lottery ticket once every four years (Using the same numbers every time) in the hope of winning the jackpot. Sadly, your odds of winning are still better than of finding a politician who can keep all of the promises they made while campaigning.
          5.) Wetting yourself while standing outside on a cold, windy winter day. It gives you a warm, fuzzy feeling at first, but will always leave you cold in the end

          • Terry

            It is still the best system on earth.

            • jim barta

              If you honestly believe that this is the best system, you are too dim-witted to vote. The only thing it is best at is corruption, It only works for the top 1% of voters. It has made us the laughingstock of the world. The only time it was ever best was when it was thought of back in 1775, and it has gotten progressively worse ever since.

              • Terry

                Go live in cuba or saudia arabia then if you think our system is so unfair. People like you aren’t worth debating all you can do is insult, you have no concept of how good you have it.

            You can express outrage all you want over Obama’s doctor BS or Clinton’s BJ, but when you say NOTHING about W declaring “WMDs” and “Mission Accomplished” and then allowing over 4,000 troops to die, you need to just keep your blatant hypocrisy to yourself.

            • Joey Brenner

              This is usually where the right wing runs off and hides. They want to try and equate SOMETHING with 9/11/01. Stretch “if you like your doctor…” or Benghazi or now the Clinton Foundation and see what sticks. Ridiculous. Over 3000 people died because they failed in their responsibilities. And to make it worse, invade a country and 4500 more of our bravest killed. Great legacy.

              • Annunaki

                “if you like your doctor…” or Benghazi or now the Clinton Foundation, IRS”
                So you are ok with all this? It doesn’t bother you?

                • Joey Brenner

                  Again, I have had it with the right wing and the farce that is Benghazi. To equate the tragic deaths of 4 people with the 3000+ on 9/11 is disgusting. People like you stain the memory of those lost on 9/11 trying to equate these two tragedies. Mrs. Clinton had nothing to do with the attack and did nothing wrong in the eyes of the 7 or 8 conspiracy nuts investigating this incident. Where were people like you when there were 13 outpost attacks and over 30 deaths during the prior decade. The feigned outrage is just pathetic.

                  The author of the book you cite on the Clinton Foundation readily admits there is ZERO evidence of any wrongdoing. If you have evidence, present it. Otherwise, it is time to move on. Again, the Bush family was in business with the bin Laden family (look up the Carlyle Group). The only planes in the air 9/12/01 were getting the bin Laden family out of the country. Where was your outrage over that? Shouldn’t the CIA or FBI have interrogated the murderers family instead of a private flight out of the country?

                  The “doctor” comment is another ridiculous complaint about perfection. I do not believe the health care system should be for profit. Life and death should not be a for profit industry. I look at the 11+ million who were denied coverage by the for profit system who now receive care and a better chance to live.

                  The IRS I agree with. This was a mistake and those responsible should be charged and punished according to the law.

                  • Annunaki

                    I can’t understand how you can overlook all the corruption. There is no hope for understanding between us.

                    • Joey Brenner

                      As I stated above, what “corruption?” What has been proven to be corrupt? You have your beliefs and they are not facts. I do not share your beliefs. Your own right wing committees (7 or 8) have cleared Benghazi yet you people won’t let it go.

                      The Clinton Foundation- The author admitted he has no evidence. I saw today where the publisher now has had to make many revisions to this piece of fiction. I thought this was America? Innocent until proven guilty?

                      My spouse works in the insurance industry and they were compensated in part by disallowing claims. I have a healthy respect for what the insurance industry will do for profits and that has no place in health in my view. As I said, nothing is 100% but the distortions of the ACA are a joke.

                      I already spoke of the IRS issue.

      • James in NC`

        Everybody know CNN, HLN, and Bloomberg TV lie as much if not more, and the left-wing liberals not only don’t care, they applaud it. What is really sad is that Fox and CNN will run the same story, from the same AP story, and folks will claim the Fox story is a lie.

        • JD

          Try reading the article. It clearly shows that FOX makes things up much more so than other outlets. It’s a fact. Oh, wait, it’s the “fact” part that has you confused.

          • James in NC`

            Its not a fact, not even close. Its the opinion of Pundi, which is not known for having a great relationship with the truth themselves. Sad, that you liberal nuts can’t admit that your idols are just as bad or worse.

        • swdetroit

          Fox news has been known to edit their video segments to suit their convictions (aka lying) to get people on their band wagon. Yet they are the first to cry foul when other stations do it.

          • James in NC`

            So has CNN, HLN, Bloomberg, and your local news station. It wasn’t FOX that was sued for faking things in some of the high profile cases lately.

The point was to show the administration is saying there has been no military action against ISIS but here have been 160 airstrikes. SO I guess what this article is really saying is the White House was caught in a pants down lie. Silly little liberals, tricks are for kids. Shame on you for pretending to be credible.

That would make me a liar because in fact I had just indicted you based on your basic lack of spelling and your posted belief you are an Alien.

        They are not liberals. A liberal is someone who believes in equal rights (freedom) for all: no class distinction. A conservtive is someone who believes in tending to their own needs, without interfering in the affairs of others. The two are not opposite. One can be both liberal and conservative. Neither liberals nor conservatives would vote, as voting creates the class distinction of rulers and subjects by interfering in the affairs of others.

      • swdetroit

        I saw this segment as well and Fox news is contradicting itself with what it is saying. The segment was based on the coalition with getting other countries to put boots on the ground, not just airstrikes, as most countries, including the US, have been doing to fight ISIL. So the captions are deceiving, yet they are also misleading the public.

    • Selkie52

      The Mint Press is a socialist propaganda rag that is only worth lining the bottom of a bird cage!!! Every story is a lie, fabrication, slanted communist fabrication and they will regret all of their corruption!

      I noticed that FOX news along with Breitbart are pushing that Obama’s ‘war on cops’ is responsible for the rise in police being killed. The only problem with that is–cop deaths (feloniously or purposely) are lower than they were for Bush.

        • Melissa Ferryman

          No it’s about all of the comments I have read and the commenters going after the group who did the study instead of going after the news networks that do not report the truth. The problem is the “news” networks not the group doing the study. The news networks should report the news not their opinion about the news. There was already a study a couple yrs ago that proved fox news viewer were the least informed. Again, never underestimate the power of stupid people in larger groups.

          • Arcanek

            You missed the point. The school system creates stupid people in large groups. The news media does the same thing. They are regulated by the government. If the media reported the real news about the wars, the economy, politics, etc., there would be retaliation from thecontrollers. Face it. It’s nothing new.

    • David

      First, why does Yahoo publish such an article but does not mention MSNBC or any other new organization? Secondly, Pundifact was the organization that when the republicans questioned Obama’s statements about Obamacare lowering costs, allowing you to keep your health insurance, etc. said that the republicans were all lying. Turns out everything the republicans said was spot on. Years latter they admitted as such when they called You can keep your plan the lie of the year (but five years latter). Of course, by then, Obamacare had been passed and was the law of the land. I don’t believe Pundifact on anything.

      • VicioousAlienKlown

        MSNBC WAS mentioned, maybe you should read the whole article instead of the headline. Quit defending Fox News, they’re a bunch of liars.

    • Bruce Hodgkins

      sean-corporations do not pay tax, they pass on the tax to their customers. Therefore if no tax is paid prices come down and corporations are less likely to send their products overseas for manufacture. Unions are a blight to civilization. Getting rid of unions will: increase the productivity of companies, reduce prices, give opportunities to employees to advance without the stupid seniority rules, employees will not have to pay to keep their jobs giving them more money to spend. The GOP federal budget does not take money from our schools and colleges, that is a state issue. Money being poured into schools does not equate to better education. This country produces the dumbest students of any country in the world, yet we spend more per student. The GOP budget does not cut food stamps from veterans and old people. I don’t think that you have read the budget, but got your information from some left-wing lying website.

        I am neither left or right, and was truly excited when Obama was elected… but was highly disappointed. Transparency, healing the racial divide in the nation, and a government that works – just words. The difference between myself and a liberal is that I have the balls to say he didn’t come close to being the President he said he would be.

        so buddy what is it like to be so easily duped when the age of the internet is here….see I just go and fact check stuff that I hear on any news channel if I think it is untrue…but your probably republican so fox News will tell you stuff that you want to hear….I may be liberal but at least I can think for my self…..also read the GOP’s last budget and then tell me why you would ever vote for them.

        • C000159

          So easily duped – ha! The libs are the one who has drank the kool-aid.

I suppose you support her too? But of course you do! You’re drunk on the kool-aid!

          • sean

            So I take it you never read the budget that the GOP put forth…I thought as much you are probably a avid Fox News watcher…just drinking the Kool-Aid all day and never bother to check your facts…So tell me how is giving more tax breaks to the 1% and corporations going to help the middle class? tell me how getting rid of unions is going to help the middle class? how is the Keystone pipeline going to stimulate our economy? How is taking money from colleges and our school system going to help our country?…Come on man just answer one of these questions just one…I know people like you that can’t think for them selves would have trouble answering them all but just try one. Oh ya how is cutting food stamps from the elderly and veterans going to help our country? the challenge is on it is the feeble minded (you) against a person that has the brains to actually read a budget put forth by the GOP…so what you got?

            • Wayne

              OK sean, I’ll answer your questions:
              While I haven’t read the entire budget that passed, I have been keeping up with it’s progress as it went through the process and have read the summaries from both parties involved. Sounds like a good budget to me. It is the first balanced budget either party has put forth since 2001. It also cuts $5.1 trillion spending. Then according to CBO, it will put $400 billion into economic growth and 1.2 million new jobs. Protects and strengthens Medicare and SS. And the best part, repeals Obamacare and replaces it with a better patient first program. Personally I would like to see the government get out of healthcare business, aside from Medicare and the VA.
              Since you seem to have a major problem with it, what is your biggest issue with it? The tax structure for the “1%”? Do you not realize that the corporations that you demonize employs and pays the middle class that you seem so concerned about? A majority of the big corporations get tax credits, not a tax break. You do know the difference don’t you?
              Next, unions are the worst thing these days to the average worker aside from the federal government. If you need an example of how they will destroy an industry, look no further than Detroit. Way back when, unions had their place to ensure worker safety and a decent wage. With federal agencies such as OSHA, DOL and the EPA, all of the workers main concerns are well covered by the government. Unions are nothing but a burden on both the employer and the employee.
              Keystone pipeline will create jobs. Some will be for the time it takes to construct the project but some will be permanent. Also, according to the Department of State, the pipeline will have less of an environmental impact than transporting it by rail or truck.
              Who is taking money from colleges and school systems? Local schools are funded by their local community and the state run colleges have to run according to each state’s budget. The federal government shouldn’t have their fingers in any of it. Education should be run by the community it is in, not a politician that doesn’t have a clue what a local education system might need or not need.
              As far as food stamps, are you saying that this program doesn’t need to be looked at more closely? With almost 50 million Americans using this program and reportedly over $800 million a year in fraud, cutting the elderly and vets is not a priority of anyone in Congress. How long do you think a politician would last if they even uttered the words cut and elderly or vets in the same sentence? When people are witnessed selling their cards, using it at strip clubs or simply not making wise use of the funds, to give you a few examples, the entire system needs to be revamped from top to bottom since people on it have proven to be culpable.
              Is all this clear enough for you sean or do I need to dumb it down even more for you? Ohh, that’s right, you can “read a budget” so you must be smarter than all of us “feeble” minds.
              “so what you got?”
              Clearly “you got” a lack of common sense, grammar, punctuation and civil discourse. It might behoove you that in the future, rather than insult someone with ignorant name calling, you make your points in a respectful manner and people might start to take you seriously.

              • sean

                Adopting so-called dynamic scoring has been a holy grail for Republicans going back to the days of Arthur Laffer’s famous economic theory-making on a bar napkin. Laffer later advised Ronald Reagan.

                The idea is that cutting taxes unleashes economic growth, which in turn produces additional revenue. Republicans want to count that extra revenue against what the Treasury loses when Congress hands out tax cuts. That would reduce the hit to the budget, making it easier to push tax cuts through Congress. Incoming House Ways and Means Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) calls it “reality-based scoring.”

                The effort, which Ryan is leading, aims to make it easier to finance what Republicans hope will be a once-in-a-generation overhaul of the Tax Code.

                Democrats accuse Republicans of trying to cook the books — and risk ruining the hard-won credibility of Congress’ independent scorekeepers — in an ideological crusade to cut taxes.

                The bid is being driven in part by the failure of the outgoing Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R-Mich.) to make good on long-standing promises to present a tax reform plan that cut the top individual tax rate to 25 percent. Camp, unable to make the math work, was forced to settle for 35 percent — just 4 percentage points below the current top rate — and part of an overhaul plan released in February. Republicans believe dynamic scoring will make it much easier to finally reach 25 percent.

                Some also want to replace CBO Director Douglas Elmendorf, though it’s actually another office — the Joint Committee on Taxation — that analyzes tax bills. The two offices, both stocked with Ph.D. economists, share responsibility for putting price tags on lawmakers’ legislative dreams, with JCT focused on taxes and the budget office handling the rest.

                Democrats scoff at the entire effort, saying the economic implications of bills are impossible to accurately forecast.

                “Any effort by Republicans to interfere with the professional integrity of the CBO by selecting someone to push their failed ‘trickle down’ economic theory of tax cuts for the wealthy through dynamic scoring would undermine the credibility of CBO and the entire budget process,” said Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.), the top Democrat on the House Budget Committee.

                Sometimes lost in the often heated debate is the possibility that Republicans will be disappointed by dynamic scoring — just as they are sometimes confounded by scorekeepers’ current budget estimates.

                Ryan acknowledged that, even if scorekeepers adopt the new methods, they still may not always tell Republicans what they want to hear.

                “It’s much closer to accuracy, but it’s no panacea, and we know that,” he said.

                “As a policymaker, I want to know whether my policies stand a better chance of growing the economy or not,” said Ryan. Right now, “we don’t get any answer — you’re just flying blind.”

                Though the government does not currently use dynamic scoring, House rules require the joint tax panel to produce such analyses for tax bills as supplements to its conventional revenue estimates.

                Those reports suggest dynamic scoring may not always be the windfall Republicans are expecting.

                For example, JCT’s analysis of Camp’s tax reform bill suggests lawmakers may be overstating the likely economic benefits of reforming the business side of the Tax Code.

                It found that while Camp’s plan would boost the economy between 0.1 percent and 1.6 percent, producing from $50 billion to $700 billion in extra “dynamic” revenue, the proposal’s business section would probably increase the costs of investments — a key ingredient of economic growth.

                That’s because Camp took away so many narrow tax breaks — most notably accelerated depreciation — in order to finance his rate cuts, that taxes on new investments would actually go up.

                “On net, the after-tax return to business capital is reduced relative to present law by these changes overall,” JCT wrote.

                That’s a clear warning to lawmakers now considering a corporate-only tax overhaul that the effort may have only a mixed impact on the economy, said Alan Viard, an economist at the conservative American Enterprise Institute.

                If lawmakers look to the same pay-fors as Camp — and as one of the largest corporate tax breaks, accelerated depreciation is a fat target — they’ll likely find the economic benefits of their plan will be similarly muted, said Viard.

                “Frankly, it’s what easily could emerge under any corporate tax reform package that might end up getting adopted,” he said. “If you’re talking about cutting the rate, and slowing the depreciation, which I think is what the current discussion is about, then the tendency is you’re going to get a negative effect.”

                Other dynamic analyses by JCT suggest it is harder to boost the economy via tax cuts than many Republicans may believe.

                In May, then-House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) said a Republican plan to extend a corporate research tax break is “one of the most generative things we can do from a policy standpoint” to “grow jobs and to have America work again for more people.”

                But the joint tax panel said only that while the bill “could” spur companies to increase research expenditures “by up to 10 percent,” it’s hard to draw a line from that to economic growth. Just because a company spends a dollar investigating something doesn’t mean it necessarily boosts overall growth. “It is difficult to find objective measures of productivity, and of the stock of knowledge created by research expenditures,” JCT said in its analysis of the plan.

                In June, House Republicans passed a bill to permanently extend a tax break known as Section 179 expensing, which allows small businesses to immediately deduct investment expenses rather than taking those write-offs over a longer period of time. That’s designed to put more money in small-business owners’ pockets.

                The problem? Lawmakers targeted small businesses so that relatively few would qualify for the break, so the economic impact of the $73 billion plan was limited.

                “We expect that the bill is likely to result in a small increase in overall economic growth,” the joint tax committee said.

                In July, JCT said a Republican plan to permanently renew so-called bonus depreciation, which also allows companies faster investment write-offs, would have a similarly modest impact on the economy despite its nearly $300 billion cost. That’s partly because many of the businesses targeted by the measure either ran losses or were taking advantage of tax rules allowing them to count losses in previous years against their current profits, which means they don’t have much of a tax bill to reduce in the first place.

                “The bill is expected to provide a modest incentive for an increase in investment, which is expected to result in a small increase in [gross domestic product],” JCT wrote.

                JCT analyses also frequently highlight an issue Republicans often ignore: the cost of not paying for tax cuts. In its analyses of the R&D credit and Section 179 bills, JCT noted that each would increase the budget deficit, which would eventually push up interest rates because the government would be increasingly competing with the public to borrow money. And that would mitigate some of the economic effect of the measures.

                Rep. Charles Boustany (R-La.), a member of the Ways and Means Committee, said he was not surprised that some tax bills would have a limited impact on the economy. While some of the measures may appear large compared with the government’s $500 billion budget deficit, they’re often quite small compared with the $17 trillion U.S. economy.

                “A lot of times, smaller provisions just won’t trigger enough of an economic impact to give you a dynamic score,” he said.

                Rep. Pat Tiberi (R-Ohio), a Ways and Means member who sponsored the bonus depreciation plan, said he didn’t understand why JCT said his plan would have had a modest effect, saying he believes it would have had a “huge” impact.

                  For your numbers on drug testing, I would like you to cite your source on this. Since it is clear that you like to copy/paste, it shouldn’t be a problem to do the same to the source.
                  As for your other colorful replies sean, if you have to resort to juvenile responses, you clearly have no concept of how the basic fundamentals of the taxation system works. It’s rather common for people like yourself to take this tactic when you have no common sense answers to basic economic issues. So put down your copy of “How to be a better socialist” and read up on how the free market and capitalism works and how it has made the USA the best country in the world.
                  Now see if you can grow a vocabulary and give me a reply without using your cute catch phrase like “Kool-Aid” in an attempt to make a coherent point.

                    yawn…here is another example…blah blah blah socialist…you do have the Fox News speak down…I mean the whole conversation was started from you above idiots defending the Fox News for their accurate news reporting was it not….when a comedian can have an over ten year career based on the news channel you and the other mouth breathers are defending would you not think maybe I should fact check said news station? f you want to talk tax code and economy if you are the GOP backer I think you are you might want to pass seeing how they have killed the economy every time they get office.

                    See wayne I hold a job and pay taxes so I can only reply to your idiotic ramblings when I get a 15 minute break….btw your thinking of America as the best country in the world that is a lie also….Denmark is considered happiest place in the world to live. we are good at replacing governments we do that a lot…..capitalism made this country great?…ya until your boy Reagan started the trickle down economics which basically took from the middle class to give to the rich….guess how many GOP presidents reduced the debt in the last 50 years? ding ding ding the answer is one compared to 4 democrats…So what your saying is the party that can’t control debt and get crushed in every economic category should be the people that run the government? so what does your extensive research consist of? you crapping in your hand and throwing it at a pie chart…I really expected more there wayne but you showed your true colors when you defended Fox News and the lie factory that channel is.

            Where are the death panels? I thought no young people will sign up for it? Where are the costs spiraling out of control? Where are all the lost jobs from the ACA? what I love the most was when the governor of Florida said just tell me what you hate about the ACA and everyone gave it rave reviews at the town hall…priceless…..but then again this is the guy that says climate change is a hoax as the beaches get swallowed up by the ocean in the state he governs…hey I don’t expect you to back anything with facts you said that Fox tells the truth you obviously have not a clue.

    • Rainbowrider JT

      Every news organization makes mistakes, but if you’re going to pick on one, then the first place you should have looked at was MSNBC!!

    • What a load of crap.
      Liberal media’s desperate attempts to disparage Fox News are laughable – and Fox is laughing all the to the way to the bank as it consistently massacres CNN and MSNBC (does that network have ANY viewers?) in the ratings.

      • sean

        lol what a truly ignorant comment….because they get better ratings they are somehow given a golden ticket to tell lies…you fit right into their demographic…the ignorant and feeble minded…I read another study that said all the colorful tickers they stream in the bottom keep people tuned in because the colors are entertaining to people that can’t think for themselves…I guess this station will keep your child like mind entertained there Jack….Thanks man you win my idiot of the day award and it has only been two hours.

        • jdgrn01

          Yes Sean… You Liberals take everything so personally… The only idiot here is you. You believe that Fox news spews nothing but lies however, when they’ve been called out they always have facts readily at hand.
          Unlike the Democratic Political Pundits who use speculation and hearsay to try and make their points. They are the best at twisting stories and changing storylines to make the “News” work in their favor.. Just follow the facts, follow Fox

      Fox Ruse is just blatant yellow journalism that so-called conservatives lap up like hyenas so they can seem informed to their equally brain dead neighbors and friends. Republicans are obsessed with telling Democrats how things really are and constantly bad mouthing Obama as if he was a 3 year old child waving a shotgun. (No, that is McCain) Obama has been a welcome relief after the Bush/Cheney orgy of corruption and lies and Hillary will be a great leader as well because our government needs a woman in charge to balance out the overwhelming testosterone poisoning the broth. Our nation is so divided now because so many people seem to want to push their God in our face and stroke their own ego’s in the process to garner favor of the invisible man in the sky. Some day we will evolve past that and you can bet that Fox Ruse will be screaming like the world is ending only to find out that it is only their relevance that is ending.

      A guy goes in a bar in Boston:
      A robot is the bartender…..
      The robot says, “What will you have?”
      The guy says, “Whiskey.”
      The robot brings back his drink and says to the man, “What’s your IQ?”
      The guy says,” 168.”
      The robot then proceeds to talk about physics, space exploration and medical technology.
      The guy leaves, . . . but he is curious . . . So he goes back into the bar.

      The robot bartender says, “What will you have?”
      The guy says, “Whiskey.”
      Again, the robot brings the man his drink and says, “What’s your IQ?”
      The guy says, “100.”
      The robot then starts to talk about Nascar, Sam Adams, the Red Sox and the Pats
      The guy leaves, but finds it very interesting, so he thinks he will try it one more time.

      He goes back into the bar.
      The robot says, “What will you have?”
      The guy says, “Whiskey,” and the robot brings him his whiskey.
      The robot then says, “What’s your IQ?”
      The guy says, “Uh, about 50.”

      The robot leans in real close and says,

      “SO, . . . you people . . . still happy . . . with Obama?”

      • AJF

        They are the most popular News Station in the Country. So you are really saying that the majority of the citizens are idiots? Sure they lean to the “right”, but they do have the majority of their shows with a discussion of both Democrat/Liberal and Republican/Conservative. You won’t find that on MSNBC or CNN. They do nothing but smear Republicans and when they do put a guest on for any time of discussion, they vilify them, and barely let them talk. Alot of us FOX news viewers watch all the Stations. We like to get information from all the News and make our own decision. That is how you should treat the News. Those that look at one side religiously, will never get their facts right. Try watching all three major News stations, and make your own decision.

          To get a true idea of what is happening in the world, you should get your news from various sources, also from ” the other side”. So for news about the Middle Ease for example, watch Al Jazeerah, watch some BBC World, watch both Fox and CNN for domestic news, and try to be open-minded. else, you will only learn what you already know and agree to, you will never discover the truth (if that would exist anyway, I believe there are many truths, all depending on your background, values, believes. What is true and good for you, may not be for me, and we both are right in our believes.)

            It was a question, hence the “?”, not fact. It’s ok, Sven. English is obviously not your strong suit, so I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt, and let it go. I’ve gone through that post above, and I can’t for the life of me, understand exactly what you posted. I do see that you use the word “Fact”, but you post no links, to verify your “Facts”. So really, it’s just your opinion. The title means nothing to me, as I do my own research into what is fact and lies, by viewing all News Stations. Hence my previous post.

            • Sven Johannson

              you watch Fox.. great .. you don’t want facts .. i get it .. again, the Articles headline is.
              “Pants On Fire: Analysis Shows 60% of Fox News ‘Facts’ are Really Lies.. I came up with 2 new slogans, one’s that are more fitting than Fair and Balanced, and you write that FOX is the most popular News Channel .. it’s not .. Cable News it is ..the Fact Fox is #1 Cable News Channel and wrong 60% of the time . how can a channel be wrong 60% of the time, and be the most popular? ideology before facts is a Fox mainstay, So if your a conservative Republican or a Libertarian Conservative or a Tea Bagging Conservative . there is a station just for you and it’s name is Fox News.. great a nation of dimwits is the goal .. now your post makes sense..

        So the democrats say that the republicans want to throw granny over the cliff. Can any Obama supporters explain what Obama and Obamacare has done to our seniors?
        Read below tell us why this is so good for America?

        On January 1, 2014, ObamaCare cut nearly $22 billion from Medicare home health care over four years. That means an estimated 3.5 million poor and ill homebound senior citizens woke up on New Year’s Day to discover that ObamaCare had slashed funding for their home health care program.

        Last year, Medicare home health services were delivered to approximately 3.5 million Medicare beneficiaries. According to the federal government’s own data, these seniors are older, poorer and sicker than the Medicare beneficiary population as whole. Many of these seniors also reside in rural communities, where home health care is especially important because other sources of treatment are often located many miles away.

    • Maxx Longfellow

      This corresponds to the many studies that show that the Fox News audience is the least informed among all of the major news outlets. NPR has the most informed audience. The study simply tested the audiences of different networks on some basic facts about current events. Fox News watchers knew less than all others. Fox News makes people less informed, as this study also shows.

      Fox likes to brag about the size of their audience, but that only shows they are sensationalist that entertain and tell people what they want to hear. It doesn’t mean they are actually informing people, which they are not.

Not to mention all the attempts to manipulate Americans to think a certain way.

To bad, intelligent Americans will listen to different sources and decide who they think is best for America. You know, use their own mind.

      All on air Fox personalities and right wing pundits are actors who play fictional characters who have the same name as they do. These fictional characters are crafted to appeal to a demographic of the dimwitted, the bigoted, the paranoid and the senile. They hold on to said demographic by, in the guise of their fictional characters, repeating back to them their own prejudices and opinions in a much slicker way they could ever muster. This makes them feel validated, and so, they keep tuning in. The agenda is to rake in the dough, and bamboozle them (the demographic) into voting against their own best interest. These people will never drop their fictional personas while in public. So, we will never know how they really feel about anything. The over all goal here is to assist people like the Koch bros., Sheldon Adelson, the uber wealthy and the big corporations (who are the owners of the Republican Party) in dismantling the federal government and establishing a feudalistic state where 98% of the people labor in sickness, poverty, hunger and ignorance while the upper 2% enjoy the results of their efforts. If, in fact, the owners of the Republican Party as listed above (who also own or influence all Fox personalities and right wing pundits) succeed in this plan, the Republicans and the right wing media who helped them achieve this will be extremely surprised when they get thrown under the bus with the rest of us because they are no longer needed. Addendum: As well, if this happens, that is when the big gun grab the NRA is always whining about will occur. The gun grab will be implemented by the privatized/militarized police forces across the country who will be working for the above mentioned owners of the Republican Party.

      Perhaps we need to analyze the “analyzers.” Who are the Tampa Bay Times and Politifact.com? Do they have an agenda all their own? If so, then the very basis of this report is biased. And not worthy of repeating. Why is it that nearly 68% of americans turn to Fox News when a major story breaks? Not CNN, not MSNBC, but Fox News. And unlike their competitors, Fox fesses up when they “F… up.” I am a liberal “baby boomer” but when I want the real news; real fast, I will watch Fox and not the others where I will have to sift through a preamble of viewpoints before getting to the news.

      • David Jones

      • sjangers

        Exactly. Politifact’s “fact-checking” has been a bit sketchy in the past. I don’t consider them particularly reliable. The problem is that many “facts” today depend on one’s perspective. Objective facts are measurable, but an awful lot of people confuse their own opinion with “fact”.

        • DK

          They usually provide their sources so you can fact check politifact too.

          • sjangers

            Which is reasonable. But intelligent readers should be careful in examining conclusions provided as factual. Quite often a fair amount of opinion intrudes. Whether it’s in the sources they use, the sources they choose to not use, or even when they take information from sources buy present it in a way that suggests it means more than it does. There are many ways that “facts” can mislead in the hands of a clever- or even careless- writer.

            • DK

              I agree the ratings can have opinion. I mean, who determines whether something is mostly true or half true? How much of it do you take literally or do you go by the point they were trying to make?
              So what you have to do is figure out what the assertion has to support it and how accurate the assertion reflects the substantiating info. Fox usually has little to support their assertions and frequently their assertions are debunked by facts.
              The problem right wingers have is they automatically deny facts and castigate the source if the data isn’t in agreement with their beliefs, while conversely never questioning the data they get from places like fox.

              • sjangers

                “Fox usually has little to support their assertions”
                I assume your talking about their opinion programming here. And I’d certainly agree that O’Reilly and Hannity often fall into this category. Greta Van Susteren isn’t much better. But I can’t recall many times when I’ve heard commentary on other networks, that I would characterize as liberal, and concluded that while I disagree with their conclusions, they certainly offer arguments well-supported by fact. I don’t do statistical analysis of commentary, but generally speaking I do find that liberal commentators are no more slave to accurate information in forming and supporting their opinions than their conservative counterparts.

                • DK

                  Most of fox is opinion programming. That is the problem. They promote themselves as news when it is mostly opinion. And their viewers can’t tell the difference between fact and opinion.

                  You may not find that other stations are more accurate than fox but the survey did.

                  Actually some liberal commentators are more accurate since they cite the source document IN CONTEXT whereas fox cherry picks things out of context in order to promote their narrative. Some also have the expert guest, (not some hack pundit) verify that their explanation is accurate.

                  BTW, you do know that Roger Ailes, the president of Fox news, was a republican political advisor and media consultant? He wrote a book “You Are the Message: Secrets of the Master Communicators”

                  So you actually think other channels are as biased as Fox? Amazing.

                  • sjangers

                    Probably a bit more than half of Fox’s programming is opinion programming, although almost all of their evening programming is opinion. And while viewers can be confused about what is news and opinion programming, I also can’t recollect CNN, MSNBC and other networks making that distinction clearly for their viewers. The big three evening news shows used to be pretty good about that, although I don’t watch them enough now to know if they’ve maintained that standard. With George Stephanopoulos as the face of the ABC information programming, I certainly hope that network is advising their viewers of the distinction between news and opinion.

                    I think the main point of disagreement between you and I has been the reliability of this report. Re-stating that the survey found other networks more reliable that Fox is a meaningless statement to me. It’s a flawed survey. Based on my personal experience, the conclusion is also flawed.

                    I have no idea what your third paragraph is supposed to “prove”. You call the guests on Fox “hack pundits”. I’ve often found the guests on other networks “hack experts”. I do know that CNN, the liberal network I rely on most frequently, brings on an awful lot of their own “hack pundits” to support their programming bias.

                    I am familiar with Ailes and his background. It doesn’t make him and his operation more credible in my eyes. But when I look at the ways that large numbers of on-air personnel at most other networks are conflicted by previous political entanglements, I don’t have a lot of confidence I the impartiality of the operations that hire them.

                    And you don’t think other networks are just as biased. Yet I’m not surprised.

                    • DK

                      No, most of fox is opinion programming. The evening is practically all opinion and the daytime is mostly opinion, masquerading as fact. Stations don’t need to make the distinction between fact and opinion. They present what they present, fact or opinion, and the viewers should be able to tell the difference. The problem is that fox viewers believe opinion on fox is fact and truth, when it isn’t.
                      The only thing you base your belief on that the survey is flawed is your bias. You have posted nothing else to substantiate your belief.
                      A hack pundit is one who has no technical expertise in what they commenting on and the facts refute what the hack pundit is asserting. What the hack pundit is mostly doing is making claims based on nothing but their bias.Fox is rife with hack pundits, but they also appear on other networks. CNN never did that before, but unfortunately they are engaging in the same drivel that fox has been promoting for years in order to compete. I’d rather they go back to news like they had before. However CNN according to the study did not lie as much as Fox.
                      The difference is that the on-air reporters on other stations are usually much better at hiding their political views than those on fox, where their political views drip from just about every question or statement they make. The difference is also that the person RUNNING THE STATION on fox, not just some host, is a political operative who specializes in political media presentations.
                      There is no reason to think that the other networks are just as biased as fox. The facts don’t support that they are. That you ignore facts is not surprising.

                      • sjangers

                        Your perceptions are rife with bias.

                        Starting with a few facts, six or seven hours of Fox daytime programming is news programming. While “Fox and Friends First”, “Fox and Friends” and “The Real Story With Gretchen Carlson” all include a fair amount of news programming, I think it’s fair to call those opinion programs. “America’s Newsroom” (9 a.m. to 11 a.m.). “Happening Now” (11 a.m. to noon and 1 p.m. to 2 p.m.), “Shepard Smith Reporting (3 p.m. to 4 p.m.), “Your World With Neil Cavuto” (4 p.m. to 5 p.m.) and “Special Report with Bret Baier” (6 p.m. to 7 p.m.) represents seven hours of largely news programming. Cavuto can get a bit partisan in his presentation, but the other six hours are generally solid hard news. So if you look at the eighteen hours of original programming airing on Fox each day during the week, at least a third is solidly news programming. And that doesn’t take into account special reports and news updates breaking into the opinion line-up. You claim that Fox doesn’t present much news programming because, well, you say it isn’t true. But it’s a little hard to argue with the facts.

                        Your definition of hack pundit probably wouldn’t stand the test of application. I look at people like George Will, Charles Krauthammer, Brit Hume, Paul Gigot, Doug Schoen, Pat Caddell, John LeBoutillier, Jonah Goldberg, Kirsten Powers, Juan Williams, Bob Woodward, Evan Bayh and dozens of others, for that matter, as very experienced and knowledgeable people. I may not always agree with their opinions, but I would never call them hacks. Doing so only exposes your own ignorance or prejudice.

                        I’m afraid I couldn’t even agree with your assessment that presenters on other networks are better at hiding their political views than those who appear on Fox. It rarely takes me much time with personalities on other networks to understand their bias, in much the same manner that one can see the Fox bias. Peter Jennings was one of the few major news personalities whose views didn’t often interfere with his on-air performance, although I tended to assume he was somewhat liberal. CNN’s Gloria Borger and John King, today, don’t offer a lot of insight into their personal views. Neither does Shepard Smith on Fox. But if you’re paying attention, most news personalities today don’t do a very good job of hiding their personal viewpoints. Frequently this even extends into bias.

                        The left gets worked up quite a bit over Roger Ailes. They tend to assume that his known bias and his previous political experience somehow trumps the clear bias of the people running operations or programming at other networks. And many of the important players at other networks also come from the world of political experience, are influenced by that world, or have dabbled in that world from their sacrosanct positions in the media. But lefties breathlessly point to Ailes’ specific circumstances as if that were the only acceptable way to define partisanship and conflict of interest. Please! Get over it! There’s lots of partisanship and conflicts of interest in the power cliques at other news organizations.

                        The only “fact” I see insisting that other news organizations aren’t as biased as Fox is your own persistent bias. As someone with relatively centrist views, the bias at Fox isn’t lost on me. But I’ve observed the bias at all the other television news operations for more than three decades; the same for most major newspapers; and major news journals; and most of the web sites that have sprung up over the past decade or so. It may be hard for your to see bias in organizations that usually agree with you, but it’s definitely there. If you need a little help understanding the underlying concepts of that bias, and how you might be blind to it, you really ought to read Bernard Goldberg’s “Bias”. The former CBS news reporter spells it out in clear and hard-to-ignore terms. You may not want to hear the message, but you really should. Else you continue to spout more drivel like your claims that other television news operations aren’t as biased as Fox, and then support that contention with a questionable report from an information outlet that is also biased.

                      • DK

                        Sorry, six or seven hours of daytime programming on fox is not ‘news programming’. It is a mix of opinion and news, with most of it opinion, based on the information presented. Shep is probably the closest thing to news that I have seen on fox. If you think the others are not mostly opinion, then you obviously can’t tell the difference between fact and opinion.

                        “Solid, hard news”? LOL. That proves you can’t tell the difference.

                        If they don’t say anything much, then breaking news is often mostly news….like saying a train crashed, etc.

                        ‘…as very experienced and knowledgeable people.’ Actually most of them are not. That is what you don’t get. They are political pundits, and to varying degrees, hack pundits. They comment on issues politically without knowing much about the issue. For example they make assertions on climate change while knowing nothing about climate change, but ignoring the real experts who do, and just spout their bias as fact. Can’t you see that? No wonder you are misinformed.
                        Jennings and Borger are pretty good. King is a bit iffy. Wolf is pretty opaque. There are a bunch on CNN that play it pretty even, which is probably why the survey found CNN to lie the least of the 3 cable news channels. It is obvious from the questions that Fox asks, the way they ask them, and the stories they present that they are oozing bias across ALL programming. Jenna is also not as bad as most, while her partner John drips bias.
                        The whole point is that we should be getting our news from reporters, not ‘news personalities’.
                        Hello? Ailes RUNS fox….the WHOLE STATION, not just one show. Ailes has the power to hire or fire ANYONE. A show host does NOT.
                        You think a former political operative specializing in media presentation RUNNING a channel which purports to be a news channel, which everyone knows presents a bias, and that bias JUST HAPPENS to coincide with the political ideology of the former political operative, and the channel presents their information as ‘truth’, is not something to be concerned about? Wow.
                        I’m citing a fact…that the survey found Fox tells the most lies. You have to keep ignoring that and denying that since it refutes your beliefs.
                        Oh, I see bias on other stations than just fox. However as the survey found, fox lies the most.
                        Goldberg is a biased hack. It doesn’t matter if he worked for CBS before. I don’t care where a person works. It is how they present themselves that matter. If they are promoting themselves as presenting news, then they should present news and not opinion, regardless of what their opinion is.
                        Sorry, but the survey provides data to back up that it found that fox lies the most. You have NOTHING to back up your assertion that the others are just as biased, which is, in fact, debunked by the survey.

                      • sjangers

                        Six or seven hours of news program out of eighteen hours of original programming supports my original claim that you were questioning. And now you change the rules and insist on interpreting what counts as “news” and “opinion” because you’re apparently constitutionally incapable of conceding a point, even if the factual evidence shows you are wrong.

                        Let’s see… opinion… blah, blah, blah… more opinion… blah, blah… and still more opinion. But I do give you credit. At least you don’t give up. There’s certainly something to be said for persistence.

                        You and I don’t agree. Even on fundamental pieces of evidence that most reasonable people would realize at least deserve some respect, you’re going to insist on seeing it your way. I get it. You can’t fix stupid. But you could consider slapping a Band-Aid on it. At least then it might not be so obvious.

                      • DK

                        Again, there are NO six or seven news programs on fox. There are just programs with mostly opinion or just about all opinion. Obviously part of your problem is that you can’t tell the difference between fact and opinion, like most fox viewers. Just because they CALL it news, doesn’t MAKE it factual news. It is mostly opinion.
                        Actually their survey is based on fact, whereas your opinions are debunked by fact.
                        No I don’t insist on seeing it ‘my way’. I insist on seeing facts. And you haven’t posted any so you have to come up with excuses such as not being able to convince me, etc. which just shows that you can’t come up with an argument based on anything.

                        I can’t slap a bandaid on your lack of an argument. It is obvious.

                      • sjangers

                        You sound like a religious person. Am I right? Or at least you do on this issue. ‘It’s true. It’s what I’ve been taught to believe. It’s in the Book.’

                        I certainly don’t watch each of them on a regular basis, but the program I listed are news programs. Cavuto can get a little opinion-y in his presentation, but I see Shep Smith and Bret Baier regularly enough to be confident in my assessment of them, and have certainly never watched the other two show (two hours apiece, just in case you didn’t know and the math seems confusing) often enough to be comfortable with my assessment of them.

                        The Nightly News Hour does have some roundtable “opinion” segments, much like you’ll see with news shows on other networks, but the focus of the programming is hard news. And I find both Baier and Smith pretty good at what they do. You may quibble with bias on those shows, as they do tend to cover what they consider ‘news’. But that’s what happens are every news outlet. Anyone who doesn’t have a left-wing, head-up-the-butt bias understands that ‘news’ at CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS, NPR and PBS comes with a bias driven by the world view of those there who determine what gets covered every day. It doesn’t make them ‘opinion’ shows, any more than what Fox chooses to cover doesn’t make their news shows anything but news shows. They have a different world view from you. It might even be good for you to occasionally live in their world to see how it looks from their perspective. There is no one true way of looking at the world.

                        I guess that’s about all that needs to be said. You constantly regurgitate this idea that my views are unsupported, while you offer nothing but your opinion to support your assertions. It’s probably just further evidence of your lack of perspective that you can’t even see yourself clearly, but it doesn’t make the behavior any more attractive.

          I have to admit, Fox screws up. But they admit it (like last week). I have only seen MsNBC apologize when they are caught with their pants down. I DO know news, Sir. I make it a life study now. Yeppers, Fox slants the news. Does Cnn, MsNBC and the rest not do the same? Please don’t call upon the name of Geo. Orwell lightly. He was a man of keen insight and interestingly enouf a man of rather conservative views. An early Libertarian, I am guessing. He was my great, great uncle a time or two removed. I still have two hand-written letters from him about his writings. In one he tells my young grandmother that his writings will “undo” him but that she should still be strong in her desire to “destroy the machine” of government.

            There is always a slant to news since it is impossible for people to present things objectively. That said, the degree of slant is important to know and the way you determine how much slant there is is by fact checking. And fact checking fox shows that they lie the most.
            Well if we destroy the machine of govt, we get Somalia. Orwell was a good writer but he stunk as a realist or economist. He was good at making up fairy tales.

        You’re kidding, right? The only time Fox ‘fesses up’ is when Stewart calls them on it with video to back up his claims. And that’s damn near nightly. I too am a liberal baby boomer but the only news I’ll accept from cable TV is from the Daily show. Otherwise, I watch local network.

        • jackied423

          Obviously you get your news from “entertainment” sources. That’s cool. I like both Jon and Colbert. But it is NOT news my friend. It is opinion.

      • DK

        They fact check stuff. It isn’t all that hard. Anyone can fact check with google. You can hear the actual speeches IN CONTEXT, see the source documents, etc. Then you can check that against what the pundits say. Simple.
        You can’t just claim that someone is biased because they don’t believe what you do. You need to show their statement is not factual, or your claim that they are biased is baseless.
        The reason that people turn to fox for breaking news is because they have so many stations and are on all the time. Fox doesn’t provide ‘real news’. It provides a bit of news surrounded by a bunch of biased and baseless commentary so you have to sift thru whatever fox says to find the kernel of actual news.

      “Faux News”… Need I say more?

      • sjangers

        We hope you won’t.

      Total nonsense. Politifact poses as a fact checking organization when in fact they are a wing of the Dem Party. They recently got exposed attributing wrong information to Rush Limbaugh when in fact Rush plainly noted that the story he was telling was from an published article and who wrote the article. Politifact not only missed that part but was then even corrected by the actual author on what Politifact said was not factual. They are a sham.

      • Jon

        Rush is the biggest liar of them al. It’s an easy assumption to make that he lies. It’s realy amazing that Rush actually had facts THAT ONE TIME.

        • Dennis Nickell

          Most people on here just want to bash Fox and could careless if the source of the article is a bunch of hack Dems that spend their time misleading people.

            Couldn’t care less, half-wit

          • DK

            All anyone has to do is fact check Fox themselves and they can see all the lies Fox tells. Apparently fox viewers don’t care about facts.

      • DK

        A wing of the dem party? Anyone can fact check, but apparently Fox viewers don’t bother. It is possible for people to make mistakes, especially with attributions. Rush is much more of a liar than Fox.

      The Hilarious Clinton “What Difference Does It Make” Comedy tour is underway. You do not want to miss Hilarious joke about her role in Benghazi, her deleted emails, how she can justify the Clinton Foundation taking donations from foreign countries and not disclosing the donations when she was Secretary of State, hear how Hilarious will say anything to get votes and hear how Hilarious has no constructive ideas to better the USA.

      • Ron Mc Daniel

        They found NOTHING. 8 TIMES. ALL REPUBLICAN LEAD INVESTIGATIONS.

      • Jon

        A boring attempt at comedy atilla. Don’t quit you day job yet.

      • DK

        Good job blindly parroting some of fox’s lies.

    • David

      Wow, and we suppose to believe this liberal partisan piece? hahaha. People, have an open mind.

      • DK

        How is fact checking statements made a ‘liberal partisan’ piece? Oh, right….citing any facts that debunk fox claims is a liberal partisan piece. Facts are liberal and lies are fox.

    • Most all MSMedia was OK with the “ISIS is not Islamic” lie that supports the funding of Islamist
      [who are supposed to be waging war on other Islamist].
      Most all MSMedia also is OK with America murdering nation [Libya, Syria and more] that never attacked the USA.

      • DK

        What?

    • 2 Sets Of Rules!

      “Terri Schiavo is eating, and everyday tells her mother I WANT TO LIVE!”

      Um, yeah OK! Need anymore? How about “Gary Condit is responsible for that young girl’s disappearance!”

    • pinkpinkbear

      And yet stupid people will vote for liar Marco Rubio and his lies about human rights in Cuba.
      Hillary is our next leader. for sure. got to love her

    • One BIG LIE is the MSMedia supported lie that Obama is even waging war on ISIS.

    • rob2234

      It’s funny to see how upsetting this article this is to teatards. They worship faux news. Actually maybe it isn’t funny, but rather scary.

      • Dennis Nickell

        Politifact is a sham organization. It would be the equivalent of asking Donald Trump if Obama tells the truth.

        • Ron Mc Daniel

          What would Trump no about truth?

          • Dennis Nickell

            Trump would know about as much as Politifact would. That is why I compared them to Trump so a liberal would understand.

            • DK

              It is easy to debunk Trump. If you can provide data to refute politifact, go ahead. We won’t hold our breath.

        • Jon

          Did you see Trumps speech the other day? His hair is getting weirder and he looks freekin insane.

        • DK

          You just don’t like that the facts debunk fox lies.

      • sjangers

        What’s even funnier is the way left-wingers get so bent out of shape they can’t even think straight at the very mention of Fox. I watched all three network news operations for many years, same with PBS and CNN, and nave used dozens of other information outlets to stay informed. I consider the Fox news operation- not their opinion shows- about as reliable as any other news operation today. Until about four years ago I considered Fox the best of the bunch, but in recent years they’ve adopted many of the same tactics as their competition, except with a right wing slant, and have slipped a bit. But I’d still say that anyone seeking to be well informed should get some of their information from Fox News. It will help sort out the left wing bias of the major networks and CNN, just as they’ll help you sort out Fox’s bias.

        • rob2234

          I appreciate what you’re saying. The people who only watch faux don’t fare so well.

          • sjangers

            The people who get their information from any single outlet rarely fare well. I can’t think of any news source today that doesn’t display at least some bias. National television sources are all guilty of pretty substantial bias.

            As I noted above, there was a time when I considered Fox news the best of the bunch. But going into the 2012 election cycle I saw their coverage shift and they started to adopt a lot of the misleading presentation styles that had turned my off of CBS, NBC and ABC decades earlier. Now there’s little to differentiate among the big three, CNN and Fox, aside from the specific philosophy that drives the bias.

            All things considered however, if I had to choose just one show for my news, I think that Fox’s “Special Report with Bret Baier” is probably the best for comprehensive and accurate information. Shepard Smith is also very good, and Chris Wallace and Harris Faulkner run very good weekend news summary and opinion shows. Even if you don’t like the political bias that you find on Fox, they do still provide good and reasonably reliable coverage with a number of their news people.

        • DK

          Fox is the worst of the bunch, as the fact checkers found. If you don’t check the facts then you don’t know who is lying, no matter how many news operations you listen to.
          Anyone who cares about facts should get bent out of shape over the massive amounts of lies fox spreads.
          Fox started the opinion shows which they promote as news shows. They didn’t copy the others, the others copied them, since people flock to big drama and boost ratings.
          The only thing that fox is good for is breaking news since they have lots of stations and they are on all the time.

            I’m not sure why Punditfact even bothered with this “study”. All they had to do was come to you. You nailed it in your first sentence, without even bothering to examine any evidence. I don’t have the time to get into an extended analysis of Politifact’s “fact-checking” here, but I’ll try to at least mention a few flaws I’ve found with the way they reach their conclusions.
            Any fact checking that isn’t objectively measurable is more prone to error than facts that are objectively measurable. Political and social issues- even economic issues- are notoriously difficult to measure accurately and are open to a variety of ‘interpretations’. Most of us can’t avoid some degree of personal bias when ascertaining “fact” in these areas. “Truth” depends to some degree on life experience; where you came from, how you were educated, and the views of those with whom you come into daily contact. Because- as the opinions presented by many competing “think tanks” should make clear- there can be many ways of “accurately” looking at the same issue.
            Casual thinkers will dismiss those who don’t share their perspective as “biased”. They aren’t aware that there are other legitimate ways of looking at the same issue. Politically motivated thinkers do the same thing, although some may have greater awareness of what they choose to ignore than others. But in my opinion, most of the time most people simply aren’t aware of their bias. It’s their world view. They’re smart people. They know a lot of smart people who think the same way. Anyone who doesn’t share their view must be stupid or dishonest.
            As someone growing up in an increasingly-liberal state in the 1980s, one of the phrases I heard a lot from progressive-thinking acquaintances- and one I learned to absolutely despise- is: “everybody knows…”. “Everybody” knew what they believed. Anybody who didn’t know
