I think you are a moron if you believe FOX is not a news source just because our goverment said it wasn't you really going to listen to them.

Ya our goverment is telling us the truth ya right.

I watch FOX and they tell you stuff you will never hear anywere else,
and they have creditable people on FOX saying the same thing.

Here lets see the goverment lies about
Iraq, Aliens,Area 51, 911 and we could go on for days and days and
your listening to them when they say FOX is not a news source.

Sounds to me thier getting scared and they should be because is giving the Truth and not bs like the rest of the so called news sources.

But thats ok you keep believing the goverment, your just another terrorist to them. And they will kill you and your family when they need to do a False Flag attack to protect thier interest and the real
power behind them.

That's the funniest sh@t i came across the whole day. Thank you for making my day.

Fox news....credible....hahahaha

And yet, GW Bush did FAR more damage to the constitution of the US than any other president. But you never saw Fox News cover any of that, it's always been about attacking the democrats. But why turn this into a debate about the merits of whatever president? Shouldn't this be about the INTEGRITY of a supposed "news" outlet? This is one more demonstration that Fox News has NONE.

So by what standard do you judge Fox News? By rest of the MSM out there?

If that's so, then what's the excuse for the other MSM outlets that aren't covering how Obama is trampling all over the Constitution right now? He's done more in his first year to trample Constitutional rights than Bush did in 8 years. But you won't see the other MSM outlets covering that. Where is their integrity?

John Stewart has balls and mostly "calls things as they happen," and, of course, as he sees's funny how so many see the same things he does............this isn't the first time I have read things here at ATS that clearly show that Fox News is the furthest thing from news............when you have karl rove out for his opinion, nearly every hour or so, on "anything," i fear you have lost all credibility.............has anyone noticed how John Stossel is now with fox?....hmmmmmmmmmmmm

If Fox News is so good with their reports why can't they just report the news full stop. The perpetual scoffing and asides they use is boring and juvenile. All the asides and scoffing are intentionally used to try and influence an audience in some way, an old trick that doesn't really work any more, if it ever did. If video footage was used from an event that was other than the event being described in the story then it should have been noted as archive material on screen, as there should be a broacasting code of conduct in place.

So again, what's the excuse of the other news outlets? Since you have Fox News targeted, let's be fair. You're acting as if they alone are guilty of "perpetual scoffing and asides". Here's footage of MSNBC and CNN being outright hateful and judgmental. As I said - what's their excuse?

This title of this thread is "FoxNews caught red-handed FAKING news footage". So, those of you trying to defend Fox by showing what the other crappy MSM news stations have done, are you doing this to show that Fox is no worse than the other crap? Why are you defending a news station? They are not your friends, family, or country. They're a CORPORATE news station. All you are to them are a $ sign.

"The Daily Show" host Jon Stewart pointed out inconsistencies in alternating "Hannity Show" shots of a recent conservative rally on the steps of the Capitol Building. This has led to accusations of Fox News splicing video footage shot at a larger Glenn Beck rally held in Washington two months ago with video shot at last week's rally, thus falsifying footage to make the more recent protest appear bigger than it was.

Please visit the link provided for the complete story.

Fox's Infotainment opinion shows often shoot themselves in the foot. Remember people, what you think of when you think of Fox News is not news. It's opinion programs.

Fox News Senior Vice President Michael Clemente struck back at the White House after Dunn's remark saying, "It's astounding the White House cannot distinguish between news and opinion programming. It seems self-serving on their part." (Full disclosure: I worked for Clemente at ABC News.) Fox went on to define its news hours as 9am-4pm & 6-8pm, parameters which exclude Cavuto, O'Reilly, Fox & Friends crew, Glenn Beck, Greta Van Susteren, and Sean Hannity from the news category and leave a bunch of people you've never heard of.

John Stewart, it's amazing that Comedy Central's The Daily Show, is better at reporting truth in it's fake news show than Fox is when it runs an opinion show.

Not that I would know, but exactly what kind of coverage did the other "news" networks give of that rally? I would be curious to see how they covered and reported on the event. Did they even report it??

This thread is about Fox News, i'm not making comparisons. I don't give a toss, other than up to the point that real people and real events should be just that..real and not fabricated.

posted on Nov, 11 2009 @ 08:50 PM
LOL O.k. that was Great Journalism on John Stewart's part.

Hannity Hannity Hannity.. what am I going to do with you? *Sigh*

I admit I am a member of Hannity's web forum, Not because I believe with everything he says mind you. To the contrary, I joined to give my support to the people and discuss the water issues effecting the people of the San Joaquin valley in California. Hannity had done a special on it on TV and after much studying the issues found that he was only telling one side of it and that very badly too, he simply failed to understand the real issues involved.

I wrote Hannity a letter and posted it on this forum as well and emailed it to him, explaining the situation properly and would he please consider this and tell the people the whole truth of the matter - this because he seemed genuinely interesting in helping the people. I never got a reply from him.

If interested you can rad the thread here:

My point being that this is Not a reflection on FOX as a whole and to bash the entire network because of the faults of one of its members is silly and irresponsible. Every network has it's share of people who don't play by the rules and individuals will do selfish things for their own agenda.

Do we condemn the entire Catholic church because some of it's popes committed horrible atrocities like the Crusades?

Did we abolish the entire United State's government when it was proven Richard Nixon to be a crook?

The bashing of Fox as a whole is nothing more than political posturing because Fox is generally said to be politically bias. Well in fairness if you believe strongly about something aren't you considered bias too?

All the media channels engage in propaganda. The Right and Moderates have one channel. The Left has ABC, CBS, NBC / MSNBC (CEO is and Obama Appointee), CNN and nearly every large newspaper in the entire country.

Hannity however is not a news reporter. He has an Opinion and Commentary show. He has never had a news program in his life. I don't like him either but I won't lie to make a point. I also don't get my news from a Comedy Channel.
Once again -

MSNBC (Owned by GE and CEO is an appointee of Obama)
-All hard core Left.

-The only Right and Moderate channel. Largest viewing audience. Viewed by more Democrats and Independents than CNN.

Hmmmmmm, is this lop-sided at all?

5 major news channels in the Democrats pocket.
1 major news channel in the Moderate to Right pocket.

Try that on a scale and see which way it tips. What a bunch of whiners. Don't even know the difference between a news show, an opinion and commentary show or a comedy program. Sad really.

Keep limiting yourselves to one point of view and dumb yourselves down. The Left is playing you like a fiddle.

The DNC and the RNC are equally corrupt and full of it. Until you realize that you are just victims.

See, however, the Daily Show freely admits that it is a comedy show and not to be taken too seriously. While FOX portrays themselves as fair and balanced.

People don't generally know that the opinion shows on FOX news are in fact opinion shows. They take them for News Shows. (That's really not the fault of FOX) But when a show splices footage from another rally and portrays that footage as from the story they are covering, you can see how they may be misleading the public.

I don't think Fox is very moderate, at all!!! They aren't even true conservative in most cases but they are new conservative.

Hilarious. what do you expect from Faux news

posted on Nov, 11 2009 @ 10:28 PM
Yep, This is what the MSM does. They mislead people. But let's be honest. It is not just Fox News doing things like this. It is ALL of these so called "News networks".

As evidence that ALL news stations pull these kinds of lies, I present you with this video from CNN during the Gulf war in 1990. It is five minutes long but if you watch you will see they are claiming to be in the middle east and goes as far as pretending to be in harms way ( They put on quite a show) Only to see later that they are in some studio far out of harms way.....

The point is, ALL news stations are full of it. Do not pick just one that tells you what you want to hear! Think for yourself! Do your own research and come up with your own conclusions.

We have been hypnotized by the MSM and special interest groups, and we are spoon fed whatever it is they want us to know... Nothing else.

The good news is, that I think we are slowly coming out of the trance and it looks to me like people are not happy about the way they are being treated by the MSM and the special interest groups who control it all.

That is right, we are not controlled by the democrats or the republicans. In a nation that is supposed to be by the people and for the people we are living by the MSM for the special interests and that is a big problem

I'd have more faith in Stewart's intention, if he also said the same thing about MSNBC. Of course, I'm sure he thinks that Morning Joe, with Obama mentor Zbigniew Brzezinski's daughter, Mika is news.

I'm sure he thinks that Rachel Maddow is a news show. I'm sure he thinks that Keith Madman Olbermann is a news show, as is Chris "Tingle up his leg for Obama" Matthews is an unbiased news reporter.

And of course, I'm sure that he really believes that Alan Greenspan's wife, Andrea Mitchell is also unbiased.

MSNBC actually does make FOXNews look like straight news (no pun intended to Rachel Maddow).

if you would ever watch the show - you'd see that he does.

Its not Jon Stewarts fault that Fox News slips up 100 times more than anyone else. Jon Stewart is a comedian - he calls it like he see's it.

He actually bashes on MSNBC and CNN a lot - so much so in fact that MSNBC has responded on their own programs by bashing on Jon Stewart.

As a self-proclaimed professor - i would have hoped you would have done a little research before making such an ignorant claim.

There are a lot of examples to choose from - but i believe the most popular one would be Jim Cramer. If you don't believe me, google "Jon stewart vs Jim Cramer"

You would laugh at your self if you saw the sheer ignorance of your statement by watching some of these videos.

Then, you'd laugh at Jon Stewart, because omfg that man knows how to rip someone a new one.

i usually hate doing this - especially for someone who calls them self a professor

but here ya go:


and there are literally thousands of more examples - if you would just take the time to look....
