33. Actually the chyron is the keyboard that creates those crawling banners

... but over the years people became used to calling the banners themselves "chyrons."

It's pronounced KYE-ron with a hard C and a long I.

10. Sometimes I wish someone would compile a book of F&F idiocies. Though you'd probably need

an encyclopedia at this point.

A compilation of video clips would be nice, too, but that would be so long it would take days if not weeks to watch.

I always loved the SNL Fox & Friends skits with the long scrolling list of "fact-checker corrections" -- like the one mentioned in this Entertainment Weekly article:


https://ew.com/article/2013/05/04/snl-fox-and-friends-corrections-list/


Once again, Saturday Night Live opened with a sketch that poked fun at Fox News’s Fox & Friends — and ended with a fast-moving scroll that listed a few things the show’s fact-checkers wanted to set straight before going to break. As always, the corrections were topical (“Jason Collins was not turned gay by a Washington Wizard”), totally random (“New York exists outside the mind of Billy Joel”), and everything in between.

Here’s the full list:

Kentucky Derby losers are not turned into Ikea meatballs.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev did not accidentally blow up vowels in his own name.

The chupacabra does not deliver presents on Cinco De Mayo.

President Obama does not want to take away T-shirt guns.

Most women have only two breasts.

The Memphis Grizzlies are not a gay blues band.

Scientology was not founded by I Ron Man.

Bangladesh is not an 80s metal band.

Peaking at ladies’ butts is not a background check.

Actual crows do have feet.

Pot pie is legal in every state.

The California wildfires are not a soccer team.

Jason Collins was not turned gay by a Washington Wizard.

The NRA is not a branch of government.

-snipping most of the list-

Anytime minutes don’t let you call the future.

4 and 3 aren’t basically the same thing.

Rock beats scissors.

Zach Braff is not the sound a trumpet makes.

13. Sort of like the over-vote for G.W.Bush in Cayahoga county in 2004

https://www.organicconsumers.org/news/blowback-ohios-2004-stolen-election-escalating#close

Blowback from Ohio's 2004 Stolen Election is Escalating

According to the prosecution in the case against Maiden and Dreamer, this method of action led to the recount being illegally "rigged." When investigators working with the Free Press attempted to audit the Cuyahoga County ballots from the 2004 election last summer, BOE officials were unable to find the ballots for four full days. The investigation team, led by Richard Hayes Phillips, had to find the ballots on their own. Under Ohio law, the ballots were to be locked in a known location, and secured by two keys, one controlled by each major party.

Brunner says she acted in part because she is concerned that many of the problems from 2004 and 2006 might resurface in the upcoming 2008 election. "With maximum 18-month prison sentences being handed down to two Cuyahoga County election workers last week, for their role in the 2004 presidential recount, the tremendous problems that surfaced in the May 2006 primary that delayed even the unofficial vote count for five days, and the uncertain future of this board as another Presidential election looms on the near horizon, it is incumbent on me as Secretary of State to provide the direction needed to get this troubled board on track," she says. "The voters of Cuyahoga county deserve it, the citizens of Ohio expect it and the rest of the nation will be watching."

In the 2006 primary, Cuyahoga County used the controversial Diebold touchscreen voting machines. These machines suffered a well-publicized meltdown, in which many malfunctioned. A report from the Election Science Institute (ESI) documented significant differences between votes actually cast on the machines as opposed to those officially counted.

Immediately following the election, 562,498 votes were reported cast in Cuyahoga County, with 30,791 listed as absentee or provisional ballots. But the official results show just 468,056 counted. This means that 94,442 ballots cast in the unofficial total disappeared in the official tallies, representing a shocking 16.8% of all the votes cast in Cuyahoga.

Michael Vu, who was the Cuyahoga BOE executive director, came under intense criticism for the bitter controversies surrounding both the 2004 and 2006 elections. Last month, he resigned "to pursue future career growth," according to a Cuyahoga County Board of Elections release.

And so they got Trump to cut off aid to all Taos...............

Not stupid necessarily. But ignorant.

Most Americans know essentially nothing about history or geography. Most Americans don't have a passport and have never traveled outside of the country. Overall ignorance is rampant.
