1. One pic up and one pic right from the bottom left corner...
... is the most accurate description of the Faux viewership I've ever read:

"The sheep off in a garbage can"

5. What shocks me; that smart co-workers watch that BS religiously
Edited on Thu Mar-26-09 12:29 AM by upi402
even the non-religious.
Smart people are easy to propagandize. They retain and ingrain deeply, the BS from a seemingly "official" source. Then it's all over. Since they know it, it MUST be true and right.

Because they got praise all their lives for learning things fast and remembering stuff well. So critical thinking is trumped and then any new information that conflicts with what they know, is seen as wrong.

21. James Randi said that the intelligent and educated...
are most at risk for swallowing horseshit, for the very reason you state. They lose the capacity to assess whether what they "know" is, indeed, the truth. So you end up with PhDs who deny global climate change and think that space aliens are kidnapping people.

25. intelligent people also tend to be more imaginative...
That's also how you end up with a lot of otherwise intelligent people getting involved with cults (or excessively dogmatic in their "home" religion). The strange, convoluted beliefs of those cults satisfy the person's imagination.

A person with a high intelligence but who's starting at the wrong point can build incredibly complex mental edifices that are still nothing more than fantasy. Like Bishop Ussher, who originally came up with that "4004 BC" date back in the 1650s for the Biblical Creation: by all accounts he was an extremely well-read and intelligent person with an absolutely massive library of books, but because he began with certain false assumptions (inerrancy of the Bible, etc.), he constructed an entire, internally consistent dating of Creation that was nevertheless complete bullshit.

66. You obviously haven't been around many smart people
The smart people I hang out with question everything especially what they see on TV or read in newspapers. They question what they themselves know. New information is compared with what they currently know and if it's different leads to cognitive dissonance which will bug them until it's resolved either by changing their world view or discovering the new information to be faulty.

If they suspect it's propaganda, it's that much more difficult for them to embrace.

96. What you say is well understood by the Masters of Propaganda
After a Blue Ribbon, independant panel labelled the gas additive MTBE high risk, with no benefit, the newspapers went wild carrying tales of the "latest" study on MTBE.

Because the Masters of Propaganda knew that for most people "latest" means best.

Pretty intelligent and kind-hearted who buy into this BS. Fox will make you flat out an idiot. Most television news is weak for various reasons, but Fox is more like watching pro wrestling than anything. The problem is, like with pro wrestling, some people think it's real.

51. Considering that Murdoch got most of his original fortune from the Enquirer
making up shit like two-headed, goat-mutilating alien-baby stories and weekly Elvis sightings, then took the same writing staff over to Faux, it stands to reason that he'd be pumping out the same shyte for the same gullible crew of fools who think it's real. That's the same bunch who think WWF is real, too. Only an idiot would believe that just because the pictures move now the content of the writing would be any different.

Apparently a lot of idiots do.

The only thing missing is the grocery-store checkout counter. The rest of us are still snickering at the fools who eat that shit up.

18. I love my parents dearly, but since they started watching FOX news
they drive me crazy. They are so woefully misinformed that is sad. I keep gently telling my dad he needs to get news from other sources, but he is stubborn and clings to the fake reality that he wants to hear from that crappy "news" network.

I had an argument with him about how much Obama will raise the top income tax bracket. Mind you, he is nowhere near the top bracket, but he brought the subject up out of the blue, and refused to believe me when I told him he was misinformed. It is so sad.

Edited on Thu Mar-26-09 07:42 AM by depakid
it's become every bit as big a problem for America and- and by extention for other nations as the big corporations on Wall Street. Probably more so- since the deregualtory craze might well not have happened if there'd been a fair, accurate and accountable media.

43. "They're not allowed to lie on television"
So I was at a reunion of my sorority in Las Vegas this weekend, rooming with my old college roommate. I should note that I went to a state school in the Northeast, and, far from the elitist stereotype, sorority girls at that time were the daughters of middle management and of union workers.

Anyway, she got really angry when I asked her if we could watch something other than Faux "News". Why?! What do we liberals have against Fox?!

I said "because everything they say on there is lies."

Honest to God, she said "they're not allowed to lie on teleision. Name just one lie"

It was 7 am, and the first thing I could come up with was "there isn't now and never was a speed train between Disney World and Vegas in the stimulus package" (yeah, I know, I should have asked her where the WMDs are")

"Yes there was! Didn't you heasr them debating that in Congress?!!" (I wanted to say "because your idiots all watch Faux "News" )

She got all wound up, and started yelling about how she "knew all about my 'leanings' even before she got to the reunion" as if I had just come out as a pedophile or goat-rapist. I said I didn't want to discuss politics, and she kept coming back and coming back and coming back.

They get SO angry when you refuse to engage with them - they're just SO sure that if they argue and present the "FAX" that we deluded "lefties" will come around. But how do you debate with someone who thinks "they're not allowed to lie on television"? Seriously. So I just refused to continue the discussion, and ended up leaving and going off to find breakfast.

God, the damage that station is doing to our country.

I wasn't very political in college, so I don't really remember anyone being Democrats or Republicans, but I remember her getting very upset over my drinking and smoking.

It is scary though, that anyone would think that "they can't lie on teevee"

100. I've been through some nonpolitical phases
where I didn't realize how ignorant some acquaintances were. What a shock to later hear them blurt out something like "they can't lie on teevee". It wasn't as surprising when it came from friends with little education, but to hear such stupidity from someone who went to college is pretty depressing.

Holy fucking shit. :wow: :wow: :wow:

So questions for the stupidest MFers on the planet (aka republicans):

-So if it's ok for us to think that way, then it's ok for them to think the same, right?

-So we're not actually "better" than anyone else who tortures people, such as Saddam Hussein, right?

-So we're just spewing more bullshit when we claim to be better than everyone else on the planet, right?

-So you truly ARE the stupidest MFing idiots on the planet, right?

Holy fucking shit...I still can't believe in AMERICA on NATIONAL TV we have these kinds of headlines. TORTURE is ILLEGAL under our own laws, always has been! In war it's a WAR CRIME. And here we have HEADLINES on NATIONAL TV saying hey why all the fuss about TORTURING people! :wow:

That's a first for me!

I post this after midnight on a weekday, come back today and look what happened.

I found this on Reddit pics. It's not mine. There's no attribution or details given and I know nothing more about it. Here's a link to find the post at Reddit:

http://www.reddit.com/r/all/search?q=img523.imageshack&...

It was a lot of work for whoever put this together and I wish we could give credit where credit is due. It's quite an indictment.

I'm happy I found something to amuse some of you and my apologies to the rest for the nausea.

you found it to share.

Someone deserves some major league kudos, I hope we somday find out who.

I watch O'Lielly (just to see what Keith will be talking about the next night). The other night I saw at least four obvious misspellings in his various 'segments'. You know, the kind that just sort of POP out at you? Maybe O'Lielly's show is just extra, extra low-rent? :shrug:

I don't think there's one out of all that garbage :wtf:

Oh, and any suggestions for music would be great.

90. Presented as it is, Faux Noise's "message" is so laughable that it's..
...hard to believe anyone even pays attention, let alone have it convince them of anything at all. I suspect (but cannot attest to, as I can't stomach even 5 minutes of it) that it's more insidious and effective when fed in bite-sized portions.

A very nice collage, though. :thumbsup:
