And in other anonymous news, another former employee, this time from MSNBC, said Keith Olbermann quit because Chris Matthews refused to be his gay lover. The source also said that the country of New Mexico has nuclear weapons and is threatening to nuke Mexico if they don't return the land that is rightfully theirs.

Disclaimer: The above news story is mean for entertainment purposes only and is only a parody. Much like Fox News, MSNBC, CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, NPR, Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, the Today Show, Good Morning Amerika and Good Morning Vietnam.

Then you must not have seen THIS yet, If that is your option..


The guy that they call a journalist on Fox is nothing more than an opinionated prick. But you have to also remember, and realize that the right and the left is nothing more than an illusion. An illusion to fool the whole population into thinking that, the major news media is actually reporting the news to inform the public, when really they are 90 percent of the time reporting their own opinions, views, ideas, and what they have been ordered to report to the people.
That, is part of the Matrix that we all live in. Unless, you are awake, you will be fooled.
Remember, who owns the media.

en.wikipedia.org...

"A theory seeking to explain a disputed case or matter as a plot by a secret group or alliance rather than an individual or isolated act." this is the new term for future generations of CS.

I'll bet you he's on somebody's payroll

This whole thing reminds me of pro-wrestling, the bad guys are threatening and going on on how their going to kick the other guy's ass and the so called good guys is threatening how their going to kick the bad guy's ass. Then when they're off camera, they're having a beer or barbecue together.

You know the old saying, their all in each others pocket.

I don't think it's really news whenever the source, such as MM, is a Soros backed media outlet. However, Fox doesn't take a 'fair and balanced' approach as they claim. Same with MSNBC. It wouldn't surprise me that all of the networks over there make up news, considering they twist the hell out of the news that comes from over here.

I know media will always have some good.... but I think most of the time most of the media is a lie. Sometimes you get lucky and they only stretch the truth.

What on earth leads you to the conclusion that Fox lies "outside" the "mainstream media." The fact that Fox is the core of mainstream is a huge chunk of the goddamned problem

Except he didn't. It's an excerpt from the "Outfoxed" documentary.

Fox, Makes stuff up, Fox
Fox News is made Up, no really. But Balanced.

Like when I want to find out the "Real" news, I always watch Fox. (Wink..Wink)

Come to think about, I'll bet they have at least Nine Hundred and Eleven fake news stories stored away in the Vault.

It's the same with every mainstream media source, the only difference being they have different political perspectives that allow the masses to fight amongst themselves over menial social and political issues, while the political parties remain identical at the top tiers, with everyone being blissfully ignorant of the primary issues facing us.

obama = bush 43 = clinton = bush 41 ... and so on ... they are identical where it counts - in economic and REAL foreign policy decission.

same goes for congress except a few patriots who are not powerful enough to enact real change alone.

if you don't agree, go do some real research.

we are being manipulated, controlled, and murdered ... Forced down a path, through legislation, educational indoctrination, and social engineering efforts, towards a one world government, the loss of liberty, freedom, and nation state sovereignty, so that the worlds ruling class can control a totalitarian power structure where the worlds resources belong to them, with the rest of the citizens ()you and me) are debt slave servants. It's gradual, incremental, and evil.

It wouldnt matter if an Archangel sent by God descended on a beam of light and announced in a booming voice heard round the world that FOX news is a propaganda machine. People, the vast majority of all people, believe what they want to believe after a certain age. You program them with beliefs when they are young, and then you really dont have to worry about it. They will seek out information that reinforces the beliefs they already have, rather than information that may contradict it.

And when they DO come into contact with information that threatens their belief system, all sorts of things happen depending on their level of attachment to that belief system. But generally speaking, it is ignored, or even aggressively rejected.


Not true. I was brainwashed, but that was by nuns and priests. I have no recollection of any political beliefs, except being taught to respect the office of the POTUS, etc.

When I was a teen, I was definitely liberal in my views. As I grew older and assumed more responsibilities, my outlook shifted towards conservatism. It had nothing to do with brainwashing, and everything to do with becoming a responsible adult. I think I am a perfect example of who Winston Churchill had in mind when he said:

“If you're not a liberal at twenty you have no heart, if you're not a conservative at forty you have no brain.”

That brings us back to the topic: most people are conservative because they have assumed responsibilities, FOX News has a conservative spin. Ergo, most people agree with FNC.

Former is key word. Why is he a former? Why did he not speak up while he was employed? Why not take all the proof while employed and run to CNN? And anonymous? yeah, ok.

I rarely trust "former employees" who suddenly feel the urge to come forward and trash their previous employer. I really do not trust some anonymous person who makes such bold claims. Maybe this alledged anonymous former employee is a disgruntled CNN employee since FOX ratings are always higher.



My best guess would be the former employee
is Brit Hume. Plus the fact that Hume has a vendetta
against Murdoch.

Now to add insult to injury, Fox hired
Keith Olberman and paid him 3 times his
salary at MSNBC to compensate the loss
of Hume. Would that not be considered
motive ???


What are you talking about with these firings and hirings? Neither has happened, afaik.

the employee, whose name was kept anonymous


Any time an anonymous person makes a claim, usually they are deemed unfit as evidence. I hardly accept anyone's statements about ANY source, when they wish to hide behind the very hand that feeds them.

Not buying this alleged " employee ".


I agree to a point, just want to know where you are coming from..... would you be as skeptical if it was a CNN or MSNBC former employee???? All the MSM skews information to a point but c'mon.... Fox is the absolute worst out there.

I stopped taking Fox news seriously over 10 years ago. They have only gotten worse in their BS over the years. But, when I'm looking for entertainment, they never cease to amaze.

Wow FOX sure had me fooled oh boy, here i sat thinking they were reporting real news the whole time.

Ya know... all the credible information they report


The sky is green and the grass is blue, Obama was born in Haiti , Elvis is still alive ect

You just cant go wrong with Bill Orielly and Glen Beck spreading all that love and sun shine



I was at my Cable providers office once paying a bill and some fella was asking if he could just get FOX news. And cancel all the other channels because he claimed it was left wing, socialist propaganda. They explained he couldn't just pay for one channel lol.This guy was irate i think he will go postal sooner or later. There is something severely wrong with FOX fan boys. I have my cable set up to block FOX
