There's really no cure for Fux News

These bastards are incorrigible. They lie with the same facility with which they draw each breath. Was just watching their Sunday 'news' program, when the anchor titled the next segment 'Hurrican Sandy victims. President Obama says "no red tape" but victims are drowning in it". So, intrigued, I watched the next 'news' segment, complete with the interchangable blonde bimbette 'reporter' snazzily decked out in the appropriate ;Fux News' hurricane outfit. The entire segment was a prolonged bitch session about how many people on Long Island haven't gotten power back on soon enough to suit them (although it appears that more than 95% have power restored and the power company has 4600 people working each day, as opposed to 200 on a normal day). But in all the harangue, not a single word about the "red tape" the President had sworn wasn't going to happen.

What's the take-away of this type of 'reporting'? "The President hasn't kept his word about there being no red tape with disaster relief. I heard it last night on Fux News".

How can we ever hope to deal with a cancer in the news reporting in this country where outright lies and falsifications are the 24/7 reality?

3. That's OK. They are destroying the reich wing by pandering to them.

The Right can't get accurate information, between Fox and talk radio. Those outlets are only interested in $$$ anyway. So let them keep it up and make their $$$, like Rove and Morris and the rest.

4. I haven't watch Fox News in ages. Do the interchangeable blonde bimbette reporters still wear

tow chains around their necks for necklaces ... at least that's what they looked like to me last time I happened to watch any Fox News crap.

7. Watch the thread with Ann Coulter on Bill Maher

Bill Maher mentions something that Romney flip-floped on and
she says, "Well, that was obviously, a slip of the tongue."

You've got to watch it
It's hard to watch
but
You just can't get the full effect unless you view it with your own eyes.

10. But some will claim it's FOX News' right to be a cancer...

 

I don't know how we go about solving the problem FOX creates, but it's something that needs to be looked at.

11. Censorship can't be a solution, but how about reviving and modifying the Fairness Doctrine?

16. Yes, that would be a step forward ... also, the stopping of outright bold

lies on mega-media that airs to millions of people. There needs to be a standards doctrine. It's clear most of the broadcasters are incapable of doing that themselves. Hatred and lies sell, but that's not conducive to an enlightened population. This country is smeared sooo thick by Hatred and lies media it's unbelievable.

12. Yes, there is. Switch the channel, or better yet, turn off the TV. Watch MSNBC or Current.

13. Fox Breaking News: Obama knew about the Patreus affair and did nothing to stop it

 



They have truly lost their minds.

These are our public airwaves, we should really demand higher standards on who we hand out FCC licenses to.
