(Townhall)   The real reason Fox is somehow "America's Poison" is because of its willingness to go around the liberal censorship wish list and define what is "fit to print" in a different way   (townhall.com) divider line 135

Is it me, or does Fark's greenlights seem to stagger, like some sort of drunk with an inner ear infection and uncomfortable shoes, from Townhall/Twitchy/WND to DailyKos/TPM/Huffington Post?

I simply cannot bring myself to click on a "Townhall" article. I fear I would be made stupider for having read it.

Yeah, that's what it is.

Yes.
Let's greenlight a few articles from the derpiest places possible.
Let's do that!

No, they're poison because they lie a lot and promote an anti-American, radical, bigoted agenda that will crush what's left of the middle class into the dust.

They also distort the news radically in a media landscape that was already pretty freaking bleak to begin with.

Propaganda isn't news.

Mr Spock, set trolling headlines to maximum.

The stories aren't the issue... most of the pieces, in terms of the events being covered, are worthy of attention.

It's 'how' those stories are portrayed, the language used, and the means by which commentary and context are generated by the 'not news' part rather than something more methodical and purposeful and professional.
 
2012-05-09 10:02:49 AM
no its mostly the craven manipulation and the amoral dickishness

You are not happy unless it is a story on how out of touch, stupid, retarded or racist the GOP is....so in typical liberal fashion you will try to shout down any opposing view.

The United States media is not liberal. They are actually neoliberals (nascent fascists) and paleoconservatives (social libertarians).

2012-05-09 10:13:30 AM
Some liberal pinko says that Fox News is biased and that the NYT at least tries to be unbiased. And to disporove that assertion, Townhall brings up two comments the guy made from 1989 and 1996; whereas I could turn the channel to foxnews and find blatant bias backup up by proven falsehoods before the next commercial break.

It gets higher ratings than any other network, by far!
And like every other news organization, it does has its opinion pieces.
The news shows just put the facts out though - and unlike the other news channels, it is not afraid to run stories....and Shepard Smith is is funnier than hell.

Ah, those insufferable elites.


I keep seeing this word thrown around by 'conservatives'. Can I get an explanation? What does it take to be an elite?

Just a college grad? Growing up on the east coast? Or, do I have to be a college grad AND grow up on the east coast? Or, do I have to go to a certain college? Is it as simple as watching MSNBC or Maddow, or is there more involved? How about an atheist - are they automatically elites? Must I hate Fox News and Murdoch? What about RINOs?

just trying to edumicate meselves.

Seriously people, do you NOT UNDERSTAND how Fark works?

Drew is not your kindly uncle. He's a businessman. Fark is a media outlet, like any other media outlet. When hits start to fall off, Drew trolls for hits the same way that Skinnyhead trolls doe responses. If you don't like it, stop posting in obvious Troll threads. Otherwise, just admit that we all kind of like spewing our outrage, and that what Drew does works and generates traffic.

Fox NEWS isn't that bad. But they only do about two hours of NEWS a day.

The other 22 are filled with GOP talking points centered bias. TDS glasses this up occasionally by clipping everyone chanting the same phrase.

I haven't checked in in a while, but they don't do much reporting outside of politics, do they? CNN used to be really good about the little stories to fill in the hours.

2012-05-09 10:26:16 AM
Heh... Well, what else do you expect? We're talking about a network with the most uniformed viewers of all News stations.

My brother in law is a regular Fox News viewer and he's a jibber-jabbering moron. If I read about something ridiculous that was broadcast on Fox, I can be assured my dim-witted brother in law will be screaming about it the next time I'm unfortunate enough to be in his company.

Almost all the cable News networks are useless, but FOX seems to take perverse joy in pandering to the lowest common denominator.

I don't have a tv so the only time I watch cable news is when all of the following apply:

1. I am visiting my parents
2. They don't have any furniture that needs to be assembled
3. There's nothing good on TCM

I've probably watched Fox News a total of twice over the past five years, and both times I caught them telling blatant lies. The most recent time was a round table discussion on spending from early in Obama's term. One of the speakers mentioned "the deficit" when he clearly meant "the national debt", and not only did nobody correct him, but they continued to say "the deficit" instead of "the debt" throughout the rest of the segment.

That's not news from a Conservative perspective. That's lying in order to associate the president with the national debt.
