60% of Fox News facts are Lies

https://www.politicususa.com/2015/02...false-lie.html

"At Fox and Fox News, 10 percent of the claims PunditFact has rated have been True, 11 percent Mostly True, 18 percent Half True, 21 percent Mostly False, 31 percent False and nine percent Pants on Fire.,,"


"And as for CNN? It has the best record among the cable networks, as 80 percent of of the claims rated are Half True or better."

Cnn ratings have dropped 55% in last update. Barely 1m viewers. Thats means approx. .35% of the population watches.

That "study" was in 2015. Maybe the excessive lying starts when the other party is in power. I would be surprised if CNN tells the truth 40% of the time since Trump became President. Probably closer to 20%.

Then again, it's tough to trust a no-name website like politicususa.

Didn't see the date. That certainly puts a different spin on the article, in fact makes it wholly irrevalent.

Well yeah, CNN while never middle of the road has swung really far left. Their coverage of almost all things conservative is off the rails.

Everyone follows the news that fits their narrative. Nothing new here but there are a lot of folks on this site, on all sides, that need to tune out for a while. The world is FAR less F'd up as these "news" sources would tell us.

Straight from Rules for Radicals: accuse the other side of doing exactly that which you are doing.

Your right those Democrats (Dixiecrats) didn't change spots they just changed parties,,

(Dix·ie·crat-

any of the Southern Democrats who seceded from the party in 1948 in opposition to its policy of extending civil rights.)

A fallacy.

The only thing that has changed about Democrats are those they are openly hostile to. In the past it was Blacks, Asians and Natives. Now it's White men and Christians. They are privately hostile to all and do everything they can to control the populace through social programs.

So was the "Southern Strategy" a fallacy also??

Yes. The truth of the southern strategy was to turn southern conservatives into Republican voters. While popular belief is that is was race related, it wasn't. Those voters were conservative but had traditionally voted democrat.


Jimmy Carter carried all but Virginia in 1976 and Bill Clinton won significant portions of the south in both 1992 and 1996.

You believe the Civil War wasn't about slavery either right?

Carter from Georgia and Clinton from Arkansas, that's why they carried the south. Listen to Lee Atwater's own words, when describing the Southern strategy

Yeah and Gore is from Tennessee and he carried nothing.

Lee Atwater is a pig and nothing else.

And if they played racist democrats for votes so what, it's politics. Is the Democrat platform supportive of crime because Bernie wants inmates to vote?

And your point? Reagan performed both good and bad during his Presidency. Bush was a complete zero.

It's funny you scoff at the Post as a source. When the basis of this thread is the amount of lies routinely purported by Fox news, which apparently many on this site take as gospel.

The other half are lies.
Everyone has an agenda.

The networks had their left spin monopoly for decades.

So now Fox as of late has their own spin that doesn’t toe the left narrative. Oh the injustice!

Lies and telling the viewers what they want to be true and ignoring Trumps well who he really is in any capacity obviously sells . Ratings talk is not what the thread is about . But carry on Fox viewers , as Trump himself has said for years “‘ They ( you ) believe anything . So True as Trump often says in his tweets when Fox News spews a lie as he watches and then tweets .
