I don't watch Fox News enough to make a decision if these examples are the norm. I have seen Fox News report on actual news and they present the same
stuff as the other news networks. So the "if it's on Fox News, it can't be trusted stuff" just doesn't sit well with me. I don't think any of
the news networks can be trusted. For sure, in my opinion, Fox News is predominantly Republican bent during, especially, the morning crap show and the
evening crap shows. Really, though, I can't see any difference between the other cable shows, in that the others have a Democrat bend to them.
Wouldn't it be nice if there really was a news network that truly expressed both real liberal viewpoints and conservative viewpoints, instead of
Democrat or Republican viewpoints? Wouldn't it be nice if these "news" shows expressed, also, the opinions of those of us inbetween? The
libertarians, the constitutionalists, the greens, the socialists, the communists,
I really hate this you are with me or against me crap. And the manipulation of news, via a "mix up" of videos, or staged events, is not the
activities of just Fox News. I'll give an example of just two events, that were not perpetrated by Fox News.
The fake military records of GWB, by CBS.
Okay, let's go into the wayback machine for this next one. Yes, it's old, but it still stands concerning a network that has since this incident,
commited the same sort of frauds. NBC. The expose of a dangerous car. If hit from behind it could cause the car to burst into flames. Not trusting
that the car would actually burst into flames, the producers put a small bomb in the back of the car so that when it was hit from behind, it exploded,
via remote control devices and said bomb.
Yes, Fox News seems to be a major criminal in propaganda, but I believe it's only realized due to extreme scrutiny, while ignoring other news
Edited to add "enough" in the first line of my post.
