If you don't watch or listen then how do you know they are the worst?
Oh cause someone else said so.
Because some dip# starts a thread useing fox as a source and someone like me eho lives in a area can spot the BS.
Why are people so adamant about dragging all the other media outlets into this

Time and time again, FOX is in hot water for spreading fear and hate and misinformation. And every time, the defense claims all other mainstream media is just as bad. And yet FOX news and the conservative propaganda machine continues to spread hate and fear and lies daily.
other mainstream is biased, but are they full of hate and fear like FOX?
FOX will sell you so much hate and fear you'll sign your sons and daughters up to die in their liar's war....
I enjoy reading about the media shenanigans going on it just seems FOX pulls more than all the other MSM outlets combined.
I once heard or had seen a commercial from FOX news where they said "We don't just report the news we make it" and that statement is true.
Can't a news network at least try to fact check themselves do they not have Google?
Of course they have said they screwed up it only took them longer than everyone else to figure it out.
So as long as they oppose even solid arguments, they may not win, but they don't have to, they just have to cause people stall themselves.

A very important point. Sometimes people don't even realize when it's happening. If you can't get them to believe what you say, you can sure confuse the hell out of them. By the time their head stops spinning, there's something new and shiny to focus us. This either leaves the viewer with their initial belief, confusion, or doubt, depending on what is desired.
But, the results are usually the same. "Derp, my view has been challenged, now I don't know what to think". Do they ever go home and fact check me? I sure hope they do. I love when I come in the next day and they'd like to "chat" with me.
