8. Article reconfirms how stupid those people are....
They care little for the truth,only what Murdoch and his on-air thugs spoon feed them. Fox could tell those idiots that the moon will fall out of orbit in January and they'd believe it--of course all the time running over to Lowe's or HD to stock up on crap to save them from the disaster. Might as well help as many corporations as possible until the end comes.....

10. The Moon
Remember, Fox TV (not the news) actually aired a show questioning if the Moon landings actually happened!

9. the very words "Fox News" provoke laughs!!
I'm always a bit surprised, whenever the words Fox News come up in conversation, inevitably people laugh!

They are somewhat of a joke to everyone except for the people who blindly lap up their propaganda I guess...

11. I Do A Total Fox Boycott
Anything Murdoch does not touch my television. This includes Fox, Fox Sport Net, Fox Movie Channel, FX and Fox Sports World. From what I read about the "regular" Fox network, I'm not missing much.

As you notice I didn't mention Faux Noise Channel...I want to hear the latest lies from O'Lielly, Fumes and Vanity, and my children get a special waiver to watch The Simpsons. I also note advertisers...especially local ones...who won't see a dime of mine as long as they support this operation.

I like the folks who are attempting boycotts of RW sponsors, I wish it was more coordinated.
