Little Help Please? - re: Fox News

I have indicated to my students that Fox News is not a credible source. I am collecting verifiable instances of lies, obfuscations, smears, etc, that they have used. Other suggestions would also be helpful. Thank you.

I generally start by using the poll results that viewers who watch Fox are less informed than those who don't, etc.

2. This is only one thing I remember, but do you recall when Mark Foley = Page Scandal

was going down?...Fox News kept listing him as a DEMOCRAT and he, of course, was a repuke

I believe they've done that with other disreputable repub politicians, too.

6. How about

Murdoch's other media ventures overseas and the hacking scandal he claims no kknowledge of.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2099727/Rupert-Murdoch-close-The-Sun-5-MORE-journalists-arrested.html

This one makes me wish I could spit nails into murdoch's eyes:

Milly Dowler was kidnapped and murdered. murdoch's "reporters" hacked into her phone, listened to and deleted messages leading the police to suspect she was a runaway.

http://www.cbsnews.com/2100-202_162-20076780.html

The Wall St journal? another murdoch rag.

The Wall Street Journal has published op-eds from 10 writers without disclosing their roles as advisers to Mitt Romney's presidential campaign.
