I think it's pretty telling that you don't consider "a gut feeling" sufficient grounds for a citation, libtard.  Why don't you go watch the Newshour with Jim Lehrer on your precious PBS.

Weaver95: The Voice of Doom: Marcus Aurelius
Fox News, a professional news organization

Since when has FOX News been a news organization?

Yeah. Like Weaver95 mentioned - weren't FOX lawyers the ones who were successfully arguing in court that FOX is providing entertainment and not news?

something like that.  the point being that Fox news went to court to prove they had a legal right to flat out lie to their audience...and they won the case.  so...why would you want to listen to an organization that actually put down real money in a real court case to confirm that they've got a legal right to lie to you?

I just don't understand the Republicans anymore.  they LOVE to be lied too and abused.  makes no damn sense if you ask me.

I dunno, there were lots of the Syndrome sufferers here long before me.

But again folks, lets try not to make every thread about me, mmmm'kay?  I mean it is flattering and all, but 16.5 Derangement Syndrome is getting as boring as Fox News Derangement Syndrome.

 

Nai: http://foxnewsboycott.com/resources/fox-can-lie-lawsuit/

"The attorneys for Fox, owned by media baron Rupert Murdoch, argued the First Amendment gives broadcasters the right to lie or deliberately distort news reports on the public airwaves. "

Just sayin...


That is a complete fabrication, and you should feel bad for posting that garbage:

Thunderpipes: Jesus Christ liberals are morons.

Fox is like any other news station now, news, and commentary. They are more in the center than any other news outlet. But to liberals, that freaks em out.

Remember, liberal "news" networks are saying Rubio is done because he took a sip of water. That is what liberals are, weirdos who can't handle the truth.

Then again, you think 11% unemployment and trillion dollar deficits combined with terrible or negative growth in the economy is awesome, because your "God" as one liberal news reporter put it, is at the helm.

Blogger?  Jesus. You think that the Center for Competitive Politics (CCP),  is a blogger?

And claiming that a statement that "editorial decisions were based on an effort to air a fair and accurate story, and defended its editorial prerogatives" = "right to lie" is the dumbest god damn thing i have read in a thread full of stupid god damn things.

Yeah, but their timing is wrong, most of their stories are posted somewhere between a month and a decade earlier than the actual event.

jst3p: There is no such thing as an unbiased news source.


Fortunately that's not what she told them to find.  She just told them not to use a biased news source, i.e. a source where the entire source has a unified, coherent political agenda for which it acts as a propagandist.

There are plenty of networks that don't have a specific or network-related bias, basically any network but Fox or CSNBC qualifies.  The fact that there are individual author biases, statistical biases, etc, are different things than source bias at the network level.

Canton: Weaver95: Keep in mind that Fox News was also consistently reporting a Romney landslide against Obama.  For months prior to the election they were saying Obama was toast, Obama was gonna lose, the Democrats were doomed, gay marriage was gonna fail, nobody would ever legalize cannabis anywhere ever for any reason...then each and every one of their predictions was proven wrong.

so even if you don't want to believe fox news and their 'right to lie' court case, you STILL have the problem of a news organization that has a ZERO percent success rate when it comes to predicting trends in this country.  do you know how hard you have to work to be wrong so many times and on that many issues!?  statistically speaking Fox News should have gotten at least something right...even random guesses would have had a better success rate.

You could start a news show run by dogs and monkeys under that premise.

I'm not arguing with you. I'm saying, please, somebody, start a dog and monkey news show. (If there isn't one already.)

You know why, because you are here repeating a grossly unfounded, untrue internet rumor, and there are people here who due solely to their political inclinations would be willing to accept that even though it is a god damn lie.

And that is why you are now spinning a completely unfounded ad hominem fallacy in an attempt to spin out of responsibility for repeating a false tale.
