As we have discussed in the past, when you compare Fox (the supposedly one single right wing source on TV) with all other networks, you find that the majority are patriots, not right wingers.

Big deal. Fox does stuff to make money. That's hardly a surprise.
Whichever one was top dog of the moment is pretty irrelevant. They're pretty much all the same in that the only thing they give two hoots about is how many suckers they can get watching in order for them to make more money. They couldn't give a crap about decent quality, human beings as anything other than watchers, etc. McLuhan was dead accurate: "Celebrity is news. Everything else is entertainment".
I think it's about time I watched "Citizen Kane" again. Citizen Kane (1941) - Synopsis Helluva movie.

Fox News propaganda in one mind numbing, mind dumbing chart - 110% of Americans hate Obama.

Fox News' Phony Obama Approval Rating Chart

Here's Fox News' latest example of mind numbing right wing propaganda that they are known for.




Fox News' Phony Obama Approval Rating Chart | Crooks and Liars






"Let's all take a minute and give Roger Ailes a quick math lesson. One plus one equals two. Three plus three equals six. Now we can continue.

Fox News has a history of posting bogus charts and graphs to make a poll or study appear to be much worse for a democratic politician and I am at for loss of words to describe their latest mind-numbing example of right wing propaganda.

A Fox News segment displayed a misleading chart based on a poll that appeared to show 110 percent of Americans disapproved of President Obama's job performance.

On the July 30 edition of Special Report, the following chart was shown during a report by Fox News political correspondent Carl Cameron on Obama's popularity in the "twelve states most likely to decide Senate control...

I will say that Fox News is giving 110% in their efforts of lies and deceptions."

Bahhaaaa! Your heroes aren't exactly known for reporting the "truth'':


Fact-Checking Site Finds Fox News Only Tells the Truth 18 Percent of the Time


Fact-Checking Site Finds Fox News Only Tells the Truth 18 Percent of the Time
July 10, 2014 By Allen Clifton





For liberals, it’s not exactly “breaking news” to find out that Fox News is mostly comprised of misinformation or flat-out lies. Anyone with even a shred of common sense can watch just a handful of their featured shows and see that the entire channel is nothing more than a propaganda mechanism for the Republican party.



Punditfact, a branch of Politifact, has put together profiles for CNN, MSNBC and Fox News detailing just how honest each of these networks are. And while it’s obviously not a completely comprehensive profile (it would be nearly impossible to fact check every single thing said on each network) it’s a decent measure of the honesty of each.
And what do you know, Pundifact found Fox News to have only told the truth 18 percent (15 of 83) of the time for the statements they checked. And even of that 18 percent, only 8 percent of what they said was completely “True.” The other 10 percent was rated as “Mostly True.”
A staggering 60 percent (50 of 83) comments were found to be either “Mostly False,” “False,” or “Pants on Fire.”
The other 22 percent were rated “Half True.”
Essentially well over half of what Punditfact has fact-checked on Fox News has been a lie and only 18 percent has been deemed factual.
To compare, CNN was found to have been honest about 60 percent of the time, while only having 18 percent of their comments found to be false. As for MSNBC, they were found to have been honest about 31 percent of the time, while 48 percent of the comments they had fact-checked were deemed untrue.
So while MSNBC’s numbers aren’t exactly worth bragging about, they’re still far better than the “fair and balanced” Fox News.



Though I’m sure any conservative who might run across this article, or the Punditfact profiles, would simply dismiss the results as “liberally biased lies.”
You know, because anything that’s not approved by Fox News or some other right-wing media source is clearly “liberally biased propaganda.”
Which is really a fantastic piece of rhetoric, isn’t it? Fox News, and other right-wing media sources, can lie as much as they want. Then if any other source debunks the nonsense they’re spewing, the conservative media simply dismisses it as “lies perpetuated by the liberal media.”
It’s how conspiracy theorists manipulate their sheep. They perpetuate some kind of asinine conspiracy, then when it’s completely debunked, they claim the information debunking it is “all a part of the conspiracy.”
And that’s exactly what the right-wing media does.
Which is why tens of millions of conservatives believe that Fox News is a “fair and balanced” beacon of truth, despite the fact that Punditfact found only 18 percent of their comments to be factual among a fairly large sampling of 83 relatively important statements made on the network.

I like Cenk - he routinely invites Republicans to be interviewed by him but they all decline because he will confront them with the facts.

Holy hell, did this guy just insinuate he's open-minded and is exposed to many differing opinions because he watches FoxNews AND CNN?

Most likely just shout over them and refuse to let them speak. That's the way ultra libs usually conduct interviews.

True but I still enjoy PBS shows especially for its British comedy, old movies, and cooking shows. Besides it has local news and it's always good to keep up with events that go on every day.
