Even non-Americans know the truth about FauxNews
Yesterday, my husband and I were playing World of Warcraft and one of the guys we play with online currently lives in Canada and has been living there for about 5 years but is originally from Russia. He's never been to the States. Someone else watching some report on FoxNews and said, "Hey everybody, turn to Fox News and check this out!" Our Russian-Canadian friend said, "I don't have FoxNews." Someone asked him if they offer it there in Canada and he said, "Yes, you can get it, I guess, but I wouldn't watch it even if I could. I've heard it's nothing but government propaganda. I had enough of that living in Russia."

My husband and I were laughing so hard, we had tears in our eyes.

6. I would say especially non-Americans
see Foxnews for the shit they broadcast. We have had it on cable in Australia for a couple of years and it is truly frightening from an outsiders point of view that so many Americans watch it and believe what they say.

7. Canadians have been up in the know since day one.
They watched in horror (December of 2000) just like we did in America. And on 911 and Katrina and so on. I bet they watch what goes on in Mexico too, not a very safe place at the moment.
