Only solution is a return of the Fairness Doctrine to end LYING on the broadcast media. Still, if that happened today, it would be decades before Republicans stopped thinking Hillary committed crimes, President Obama was a Kenyan and having no restrictions on guns make us safer.


We have Fox and we have MSNBC, CNN, CBS, NBC, etc - what is unfair that requires federal intervention? If anything it is Conservatives that should be whining, not Marxists.


If liberals and the left are called Marxists - then it would be only appropriate to refer to republicans, conservatives, and tRump cultists as fascists...

Getting back to the basic question asked a year and a half ago and still being used for foul mouthed attacks on fellow posters, the answer is "no".

Well - they are mostly the intellectually sub median fools that voted for trump.

 

If they listen to and believe what's said on Fox - there's no question - they are decidedly sub median - bet they listen to - and believe those grossly dishonest conservative talk radio liars and believe that as well...

Are they stupid enough to believe Hannity, Coulter, Ingraham and other deliberately evil creatures? 

 

There's no question that they are boneheads for voting for tRump, and plainly **bleep** for brains for believing Fox.

Idiots are slightly smarter than Fox viewers...

Debunked--really?  Suppose Hillary didn't pa for the fake Dossier, and Obummer didn't spy on Trump.  Obummer needs to get a hobby, as well as Kerry.  They are not in office, and aren't authorized to make vehement accusations against Trump.  Both of them are cohorts with Iran, and funneling money that Obummer did was allowing them to build their arsenal of nuclear weapons to use against the USA.  They're still bad mouthing Trump.  Just get over it, you lost and are no longer in power.  So their criticism means nothing.


Posting half truths and and out and out false things, along with spelling Obama's name "Obummer" is answering the question the title of this topic asks.

No they want to hear what is happening and you do not get ALL the news on the likes of MSNBC .


Then why do posters here bring up the "Uranium Deal" when FOX itself has debunked it?


You watch FOX?  Appears you know more about the network than conservatives.  In any event there are more liberals here commenting on the network that(sic) others.


So why didn't you answer my question instead of making this personal about me?

No way to sugar coat it...if you like the criminal-in-chief, then Fox News is right up your alley...if you fall for this sham of a news organization, then YOU ARE AN IDIOT!!!....The only entity other than Fox News that continually lies is the buffoon in the White House!!

 

If.you don't care about your own interest, then just take your gun (that Obama did not take), AND  SHOOT YOURSELF IN THE FOOT...

Fox News preys on anyone who is sufficiently detached from the reality in which the rest of us exist to believe their distorted coverage. It just so happens that the less educated are more apt to fall for the alt-right propaganda they broadcast.

 

MSNBC, though not as egregious as Fox, uses similar tactics. Executives at the network prevented their hosts from covering Bernie Sanders when his campaign for the Democratic nomination began in 2016. At the same time they demanded that all coverage of Hillary be positive in nature. MSNBC does not promote racism and bigotry so making a one to one comparison of them with Fox is unfair but they have had a negative impact on the democratic process as has Fox.

 

Does Fox News prey on the education levels of their viewers?

Yes, you dimocrats need to stop watching Fox News. You are only used to watching the fake news!


Oh, like the lies continually perpetuated on the Seth Rich case?
