I don't mean to nitpick...... but the headline itself should probably read "Fox News Text Is rather than Are.
That would be the consideraton ONLY for the bastardized version of English that is uniquely American (I
am American, BTW...but, I also
have travelled, and have an awareness of other versions of the English language and grammar).
The use of the plural verb are
is actually correct, when referring to the collective GROUP of FOX 'news'. ( I put 'news' in quotes
because...well, do do otherwise would give THEM too much credit!
It IS a sort of semantics, this difference....not really an issue, since in common usage, BOTH can be considered to be "correct"...just a matter of
Like, spelling too......"license"/"licence" -- "specialized"/"specialised" -- etc.
( I don't mean to nitpick... )
