Is it time for Dems to start discrediting Faux News?

Seeing that they are officially the station of crazy and stupid is it time for dems to discredit them via strategic slips and leaks of easily falsifiable accounts?

Without the Faux News mouth piece and bubble what will conservatives go to?


your take?

4. Crazy Is As Crazy Does...

I'm perfectly fine with Bullshit Mountain remaining what is it...a cesspool that is dragging down the rushpublican party. Faux discredits itself by being itself. That video of Rover trying to manipulate the election results will go down as a classic of television gone bad...propaganda in the guise of a "network". In short, the marketplace of ideas is discrediting Faux. The difference between now and the past is there's alternative voices...from folks like Rachel, Ed, Lawrence and others at MSNBC, Jon Stewart and a wide range of websites that helped not only refute the talking points but turn the light on the network's dishonesty. They were a liability in the past election and will continue to be in the future. Leave well enough alone...

5. Why? they served our purpose well

Seriously though, there are people that are "simple" (versus evil) and believe what is presented to them because they lack the resources to look at info critically ... there should be something to counter the FOX "stupid making machine""

8. NOOOOOOO! We should let Rush and Fox and Ann just continue just as they are.

Right now Dumbfoxistan is concluding that the only way to win the next election is to go further RIGHT and that the idea that the Republican party needs to become more moderate is "a pig in a poke."

Let them just keep going with this and we'll win supermajorities in 2014.

This is the best thing that has happened to Democrats EVER.

9. Way past time. They need to be ridiculed and belittled

and shown to be what they are, and not afforded any credence as a "news" organization. This is not saying to shut them up ; they have every right to spew bullshit, but to refuse to act as if they were anything but that...(although being held liable for actions stemming from their words, i.e. O'Reilly and Dr. Tiller would be appropriate) .

10. I've tried but its impossible to shake them. They firmly believe Faux is NEWS, not propaganda.

I've got direct experience with this. Bill O'Reilly I'm told, is the best NEWSman, evah!

11. The crazies I know are always quoting websites rather than Faux.

WorldNutDaily. Dimbart. Idiots like that.

Only those that are willfully blind or just plain mean, don't see it, and you aren't going to change those minds. Let em' rant, all the good it did them...

16. "Fox" has torn some people in my family from

being happy and reasonable to very angry and very hot headed and not at all reasonable for a second. They are a major part of the divide in this country. I don't think that anyone who has not experienced a "fox watcher" who wasn't in the past,) can understand the strange change in these people. They are so angry and they don't think they are , They think there is something wrong with You!! They think they know you -but how for a second do you NOT see it as they do! FOX is a major part of all our problems I don't know the point or end game but it is terrible for this country and families and friends and co workers.

17. My daughters all know that my mother's house is a 24x7 FOX dung heap.

 

It's constant hate. I love my mom, but I don't like my daughters being subjected to that. At least they're old enough to know it is raw sewage.

14. Faux is doing a pretty good job of discrediting them all by themselves.

Better to just leave them alone in their own little echo chamber.

18. They are better of letting them

self-destruct...They have been caught lying, they lied about the Polls and people spent invested in
the Romney campaign based on Fox News and Karl Rove. They have been humiliated and
the far-right is becoming unhinged... The Dems just have to leave them to it.
