A brain room?

So you check them at the door when you enter the building?

"Fox" and "brains".  Two more words for you.  Mutually.  Exclusive.

"brain room" is code word for "ball sack", trust me.

Duh. "Facts" have a liberal bias, as you well know.

Given their business model, they should fire the guy who kept the fact-checkers on staff for so long.  What a colossal waste of payroll.

Xev would starve on brains like that.

To judge by what makes it onto the air, their fact-checking people needed firing. They were either shiatty at their jobs or determined to be irrelevant to the overall goal of shiatting out stupid 24/7.
 
2020-09-29 5:44:24 PM  
Of course they had a Brain Room, subby. Where else are they gonna keep their four collective brain cells when no one's using them?

We have found that all life forms in the galaxy are capable of superior development. Perhaps you're not as evolved as you believe.

Fox News always used their brain room as a way to apply a thin veneer of legitimacy to what they do. They have since learned that in the time of trump their cultists don't even need that thin veneer of fact to legitimize their insanity. All they have to do is make it up and then blame they are sworn enemies and the cultists will follow.

They weren't using the fact-checking research unit anyway, so naturally lay them off. It was dead weight to them.

After that nytimes article all about it I'm not surprised.

So, top right picture... What's that from?

For science of course.

Certainly not Fox News.

Fox News Channel has a "Brain Room"
Fark user imageView Full Size

It's got all those monitors, and people pushing buttons, ant that guy...
...the guy with the headset microphone...
...resisting the urge to hang himself with it.
 
2020-09-29 7:17:24 PM  
Yeah, it's kinda like a cloak room and is used the same way.

People show up, turn in their brains in the brain room, pick up their claim checks, and go to work.
 
2020-09-29 7:25:52 PM  
Layoffs. Fox "news" doesn't make enough money to be solvent. When Fox Entertainment was purchased, the company spun off the "news" channel. Without the cash from fox entertainment to stay afloat, they are going to have a time trying to stay afloat.

Pillows and catheters can only get you so far.

Cultivating the stupid actually takes intelligence. Their audience is dumb. Tragically, Fox News is not. Most of what they promote makes sense as a strategy. "Cultivate the idiots into a bloc, then use their wilful ignorance to maintain power beyond our sell-by date" is that strategy.

Imagine what we would be as a nation if Fox News wasn't out there telling their viewership to hate all of us.

Huh. I thought that was people protesting for more remedial/adult education funding. I think it is desperately needed.

The outlet's so-called "Brain Room," which the late Fox News founder Roger Ailes established as the 24-year-old channel's fact-checking and research unit, has been especially hard-hit,

Who bought it?  Might the new owners decide that the whole "Maximum Derp" thing just wasn't working out, and change the entire slant of the channel?
