verbaltoxin: Uranus Is Huge!: Are you a worse person if you work at FNC and believe what they are shoveling, or are you worse if you're just doing it for the paycheck?

This is true. Think of slap bracelets. 4chan is the kid in class who first showed up with a slap bracelet. Reddit are the kids who saw 4chan doing it and went, "Me too!" and next week, every kid in class has slap bracelets. Fark is the kid who gets a slap bracelet six months later, after all the other kids are tired of slap bracelets. The other kids laugh at Fark, but Fark turns around and says, "Haha, joke's on you! I only wore it because it's so lame! I mean, slap bracelets, right guys?!" And then Fark slowly, softly lets one tear roll down its cheek as it cracks a big smile to mask the pain.

More_Like_A_Stain: Vegan Meat Popsicle: You have to be pretty goddamn stupid at this point to not realize that FNC is anything more than 24/7 republican propaganda

And yet, they're the highest rated cable news network. And during the daytime "hard news" shows, only SpongeBob commands more eyeballs.


Because it WORKS for them. They are making a lot of money by focusing all of their resources on a specific demographic.

Look at Current TV. It started as a network that wanted to be a real organization dedicated to higher standard of intellectual progressivism. No one wants to see that boring shiat. We care about Brangelina, angry black men, people who cannot spell "moran", OMFG HOW AM I GONNA DIE TODAY!?!?!, etc. Current TV does not appeal to that segment and they are suffering because of how serious they are.

TimonC346: Fox News viewers aren't smart--that's why I have such a loathing for Fox. It's manipulating morons, and they know it. They convince people of vast liberal conspiracies that don't exist. They bring on "experts" to parrot right wing talking points and promote bullcrap like our president being a Kenyan Socialist, and how the movie 2016: Obama's America is probably the most important movie of this generation.

It's sick what they tell people for ratings.


THIS. I used to compare it to hucksters preying on Christians to send them money. Say "Jesus" a few times and have that number at the bottom of the screen and you'll be rich, as long as you're a very convincing con man with no scruples. But while those people do alot of damage to society they are not actually undermining the very foundations of our democracy like Fox News is.

A democracy is dependent on an informed populace, and that is reliant on an open media. That's why it's the very first thing mentioned in the Bill of Rights. I don't have a problem with Fox being Fox. I just have a problem that they are passing off their propaganda as unbiased news. News is not there to perpetuate opinions, it's to relay facts and ideally separate them from bias. Biased "news" is not news at all.

Dogpants: THIS. If Murdoch could make one more dime from doing it, Fox would be a left-wing propaganda channel faster than you could say Rachel Maddow.


The main issue is the ease of writing and platforms of ideologies. Let's just take the DNC for example: They had removed God from being uttered in the venue. So, they hold a vote with hardly anyone in the arena to formally propose it be brought back. Half said yes, and in my opinion, more than half said no. I said that exactly the way it needed to be said, because it's probably accurate... they were liberals after all.

And, that's been my complaint of the Democratic Party for a long time: Too many differing viewpoints to a common cause. Republicans will get in line pretty quick with a solution, as it's usually fast, blunt and takes out Democrats in the process, but Democrats will hem and haw, beat around the bushes, get differing viewpoints and come out with a milquetoast response to the whole affair.

Mind you, these are generalizations. But, let's just say it's easier to feed a dog than it is a cat. A dog is going to snatch up anything that comes close to it's mouth where a cat is going to stop, sniff, hit it with it's paw, walk way, leap back at it, then sit on it for a while, make sure it's still there, then walk up to you and ask for something else to eat. Fox News feeds the dogs. It's a much easier and precise market to feed: Stick to the basics of God, Country and Guns, and maybe venture out to get opinions on other things.

I'll listen to Sirius XM news channels: CNN, Fox, NBC, BBC, and the commercials are VERY interesting.

Fox News Commercials: Buy Gold, Buy Boner Pills. Every commercial break, you'll get a variation of both of those, then generally some ambiguous claim about the Nation going to Hell, so go to a website (that always has a number in it...) USAGoesToHell66.com or USAIsInTheShiatter34.com or KissYourInvestmentsGoodbye42.com. It's always the doom and gloom websites that some unknown genius has prognosticated through years of social research and how they predicted some small thing that made big news. Without this information, you and your loved ones will be at risk when it all goes down. They never say what 'it' is, or what's about to 'go down', but it's highly important!!!

Other news channels: Investment Opportunities, Time Shares, Life-Alert, Landline sales (Vonage, AT&T, etc), Computer Virus Cleaners that you can install FOR FREE, and I swear to God I heard a Chia pet commercial not too long ago, but was in a driving haze, so it may have been another commercial with a similar jingle, and let us not forget REPEATING PHONE NUMBER OVER AND OVER AGAIN, I said REPEATING PHONE NUMBER OVER AND OVER AGAIN, one more time REPEATING PHONE NUMBER OVER AND OVER AGAIN, REPEATING PHONE NUMBER OVER AND OVER AGAIN, REPEATING PHONE NUMBER OVER AND OVER AGAIN, REPEATING PHONE NUMBER OVER AND OVER AGAIN so remember: REPEATING PHONE NUMBER OVER AND OVER AGAIN.

Yep. Let me agree with you more:

Fox News actually did a ton to perpetuate the idea Obama wasn't born here. They've screamed "socialism" more times than anyone here--and when I have a dialogue with any Republicans about Obama's policies, I know exactly what they are going to say and when, because it basically appeals to morons who need an oversimplified version of good and bad. A few of the gems I've heard:

"Obama's just an extremist socialist."
"The economy is still just not improving. "
"Liberals just don't want to focus on the economy."
"Of course Romney will fix the economy--he's a business man!"

Contrary to all facts or previous experiences--I hear these every farking time. Data? Psh. Who needs data when Brit Hume's easy on the eyes mug tells me what to think.

There is no grand media conspiracy to destroy OWS and the Tea Party. They don't give a shiat about them in the grand scheme of things. All they want to do is showcase the morans of the group.

Congratulations for catching up with the rest of us.

I have seen many make the claim that OWS was taken down by corporate media. Most of those claims that I saw originated on fark.


I am a fark junkie, and didn't know this was a common position (or a position for that matter). I think the OWS movement slid off a bit because of winter mostly.

It's not the point that everyone does it, it's that Fox news does it so egregiously, outrageously and often, yet the viewers of the channel eat it up as Gospel.

Then again, they're only asking questions and allowing the viewership to make up their own minds, then post on their website, then they gather the data, find out what's most prevalent and common, then run that screed for the next 24 hours. It's quite amazing to watch it happen, and downright genius to see it come off quite so well.

Pose Question. People post many answers, find answer F to be the most popular. Next 24 hours, tout Point F as the truth, because so many people believe it to be so. Those that didn't answer F to the question now know F is the correct response. Now the entire Right Wing establishment starts saying F it! while every on air personality on Fox News spits out Point F 2-3 times an hour for the next 24 hour news cycle.

During this 24 hours, the thinking heads are giving the talking heads their talking points. 3rd 24 hour cycle has the talking heads, people like Krauthammer and Rove and Palin endlessly shilling Point F, giving their own little twists to it, but never breaking ranks. Some, like Palin, like to tout themselves at the same time, which polls well with the audiences, so they let her have it, but the talking points must be fully rounded out by the talking heads. Once the talking heads had fully formed all angles of the circular talking point, they begin mixing it in with other tried and tested talking points.

It should be noted, in order to be a talking point, it must reflect Obama or Pelosi in a bad light. That's the first order of business. After they've taken their shots at the 'leaders' of the Democrats, they begin with the broad stroke graffiti of the left as a whole. This is why we get people thinking all blacks are poor, and all minorities want free stuff all the time and never want to work for what they get, and the president is half-black, so he's twice as bad (it's Republican Math, don't ask).

MSNBC has Rachel Maddow and other opinion shows, true, but I have never gotten the senese that they are a full-on propaganda arm of the DNC the same way I get the feeling that Fox News is working for the RNC.

Aside from Chris Matthews at any rate.


Chris Matthews isn't working for the DNC, Chris Matthews just likes to hear himself talk. Hell, this guy was voicing disappointment in Obama's victory speech 10 seconds after it was done on election night.

I think you are missing the point--MSNBC wasn't lying--they were reporting what was advantageous to their agenda. It's not objective reporting, but it's not the actual lying that Fox News was spewing to fire up their retarded base.

Now I don't advocate either of these behaviors--but they are different behaviors.

I had to spell it out to my mother with the Security Clearance angle. She knows I have security clearances, she knows the interview process, and my security clearances were low in comparison to what the farking President Of The Farking Untited Farking States Of Farking America would get, and she truly believes that all the intelligence agencies of our friends AND enemies, and our very own intelligence agencies couldn't find evidence of him being a secret Muslim born in a foreign country, but Trump and Arpaio could?

Explain it that way, making sure to emphasize exactly how stupid it sounds when you put a voice to the thought of it all.

TimonC346: I think you are missing the point--MSNBC wasn't lying--they were reporting what was advantageous to their agenda. It's not objective reporting, but it's not the actual lying that Fox News was spewing to fire up their retarded base.

Now I don't advocate either of these behaviors--but they are different behaviors.


Perhaps I did miss the point. I was pointing out that Fox Viewers are the first to claim MSNBC is biased diametrically to Fox News because Fox News told the viewers this. The masters are giving the peasants the rules, regardless if they're true or not, because that's what the masters want the peasants to believe.

Zombalupagus: TimonC346: "Obama's just an extremist socialist."

A friend of mine is so brainwashed that when N0bama won he said, "I really hope you're right about this and Obama isn't a Muslim plant as part of a conspiracy to destroy our country." He was being serious. Though in truth that probably has alot more to to with Glenn Beck than Fox, per se.

/also, Timon, I C what you did there. Much appreciated.


No worries--I enjoyed your point of view. I like people that aren't retards.

jake_lex: Aarontology: cman: I have been saying the same farking thing for months

MSNBC and Fox News DON'T care about news. They care about money.

There is no grand media conspiracy to destroy OWS and the Tea Party. They don't give a shiat about them in the grand scheme of things. All they want to do is showcase the morans of the group.

Thanks for the input, captain false equivalency.

MSNBC has Rachel Maddow and other opinion shows, true, but I have never gotten the senese that they are a full-on propaganda arm of the DNC the same way I get the feeling that Fox News is working for the RNC.


Rachel Maddow is less of an opinion show and more like investigative journalism. Big difference.

Hey I know this guy, we bothe graduated in '04 from Notre Dame. We met once and exchanged a couple sentences. He was a bit infamous for desecrating the alter in my dorm's chapel for one of his film projects. He is actually a very outstanding individual and I can't imagine a job that would kill his soul faster than working for fox, I'm glad he chose the nuclear option as an exit strategy.
