I don’t know about hope for the msm

For individuals in it, sure

But at this point, it seems clear that all sides are more interested in being biased commentators than journalists

Thank you. I wonder if they made the revisions or corrections?

I've read their articles and opinion pieces that are full of blatant lies and I rarely ever see them apologize for them. Like I said I am a long time Fox News reader. I love their articles, especially opinion pieces because they're nothing but entertaining.

I don't follow FOX News, so I can't say. I did try Googling to see if any group has setup some manner of scorecard comparing the major outlets' track records on retractions and corrections and what I found actually makes some logical sense... retractions are a pain in the ass for any watchdog group to get an accurate number on, simply because they tend to only come to light if another news group draws attention to them or are a major story. Corrections, on the other hand, are impossible to track accurately. None of the networks draw attention to their corrections and finding them requires one to follow the original posting of the story until said correction takes place because the industry standards simply require a small blurb at the top or bottom of the original article saying "this article was updated to correct XYZ on date/time". In other words, the beast is far to large to properly check for fleas.

Trump just did this to jinn up an issue that didn’t exist for sordid political reasons.

Trump is the lowest of the low

Not one Eagle during the season took a knee.

When is Trump going to call Fox News fake news?


He does every time Sheppard Smith opens his mouth. I have little doubt those two hate each other. You can literally see it on sheps face when he has to talk about Trump.

When they turned on him.

Meanwhile, MSNBC can purposely edit footage of a black man with an AR15 in order to give the wrong impression it was a white guy, then proceeded to incite racist hysteria. They never apologized and nobody ever called them on it besides me and a few others.

Maybe they should have used footage of Eagles players getting arrested.

As to the OP, FOX screwed up. I find your comments on them "not really being sorry" to be somewhat humorous for a pair of reasons.
1. Aside from God, nobody can read someone else's intent. Acceptance of an apology is the ultimate faith action, really... and the acceptance or refusal of such speaks of the character of the recipient more than of the apologizer.
2. By the standard you're using here, no news media outlet is ever really sorry for their errors. They all issue apologies because it's expected of them and they want to keep playing the game.

Trump's comments, on the other hand, were part of his commentary on the Eagles, but were on the NFL as a whole. While the Eagles may have had no kneelers, they certainly had anthem grandstanders as every NFL team did.




Anyone with this view should read this.

Ask any Trump supporter. They'll say, "It must be true, it's on Fox". Shepard Smith isn't going to be happy about this.

Fox News = Fake News.


Definitely. They are the Only station that has a plethora of hosts from both sides of the partisan aisle. Why would you ever want to hear opposing points of view? I am like you, I just like hearing what makes me feel good. I like it when the hosts on CNN MSNBC say things I agree with, because they are smart and make a lot of money, so, it's comforting when I see smart famous people saying things I agree with, because then it makes Me feel like Im also smart. That's why I never watch FOX, cause why would I ever want to be exposed to other points of view and other people's perspectives? I know my team is right, and the other guys are bad. End of story!

Sorry..... but not really sorry, just sorry we got caught.


They had no choice. They had to manipulate the president somehow.

Read it all before you make assumptions. It's not that long at all, I promise I got through it in 5 mins whole being distracted. And I even agree with the John McCain quote at the end, although I question his motives.

I read that stuff in the past. It's crazy but on the other hand recruitment is down so much I can't blame tem too much. Still seems crazy but less so when you realize they can't even get enough applicants to make a full special forces team.

The president going bezerker over such a stupid issue doesn't make sense. How about just cancel having sports players and actors and start bringing engineers and scientists.

I have a feeling the issue would be similar as he couldn't handle the ceo's either in his commission. He doesn't do well with criticism.
