Faux News followers go there to have their beliefs confirmed...not to gain knowledge of what's happening.
So true......they carry pics in their wallets of Hannity and Tucker for when they need some alone time in public restrooms.

Imagine the bias coming from just one side..... Crazy shi t

Wed never hear about craziness like this if not for fox.
Biden urged by House Dems to extend ObamaCare benefits to DACA recipients
Jesus....Another one. I thought the Reagan law requiring Hospitals to treat all a dumb thing and placed a heavy burden on the Tax Payers shoulders and giving freeloaders guaranteed health care a bad thing. Now fox is saying Biden is being pushed by Democrats to do the same thing. The Reagan Law is why people fought the mandate of "ALL MUST CARRY HEALTH INSURANCE OR PAY A PENALTY." Hey they were already receiving FREE health care in the Emergency Room why should they have to carry Health Insurance to pay for medical care.

"The law requires hospitals to treat patients in need of emergency care regardless of their ability to pay, citizenship or even legal status. It applies to any hospital that takes Medicare funds, which is virtually every hospital in the country."

(That Reagan requirement/Law put a lot of small Hospitals out of business.) The Hospital in the County I currently live in closed it's doors. Could not continue to absorb the cost of treating freeloaders and no revenue coming in.

.

Now to the part about we would have never heard of the petition sent to Biden without Fox News, this is false. Yahoo, NBC, CNN, ABC, CBS, and others carried the story. Here is what you did not post from Fox in your allegation and it is from NBC News.


Now let's get to the one other Networks posted but Fox did not/will not post.

Look at this web link where a Arizona elected official, Kelly Ward who supported Trumps assertion that Biden stole votes in Arizona is now having her election scrutinized.

Look this web link. Look for and view the Anderson Cooper interview about statements Marjorie Taylor Greene made about killing Democrats and shooting Nancy Pelosi in the head.

Here is a video of her showing her confronting Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg. A survivor of one of the School Shooting that She alleges were "Staged Events".

Did someone say Fox is not biased? Nope. They all are. Most towards the left with just fox towards the right. Everybody knows that. Waste of time Gator.

The byline on the story from NBC covering this matter that Gator posted is from yesterday, the one you linked from Fox is from an hour ago.

So ... no, we'd hear about it.

Unless what you meant by "we" is only those folks that watch Fox News.

What is really sad is Greene‘s attack for which she has been rewarded by Republican Leadership for her stalking attack on a survivor of the Parkland Florida school mass murders calling it a false and staged event.

Don’t look for this on Fox News.


The big question people must themselves is how they would feel if they lost a son or daughter in one of the school mass murders this person says was faked and was elected to the US House of Representatives And their tax dollars are being used to pay this persons salary, health and retirement benefits.

The biggest thorn though being she is now bringing provided a stage provided by the tax payers to spew forth her hatred and bigotry.

Former Fox host Shepard Smith has some insights into FOX after working there for 23 YEARS



"My goal was to just keep the blinders on and to do my job to the best of my ability," he said. "Opine all you like, but if you're going to opine, begin with the truth and go from there. It's that deviation from that that has caused me the greatest concern. And I believe that when people begin with a false premise and lead people astray, that's injurious to society, and it's the antithesis of what we should be doing."

He added, "I slept very well. I don't know how some people sleep at night because I know there are a lot of people who have propagated the lies and pushed them forward over and over again who are smart enough and educated enough to know better. And I hope that at some point, those who have done us harm as a nation — and, I might add, as a world — will look around and realize what they've done. But I'm not holding my breath."

We no longer have news....we have reality entertainment.......they all cater to their lemmings.

Yep... but once again it WAS FOX (and their Corporate lawyers) that totally Broke the Broadcast News arena.

The whole Monsanto deal and suing their own Investigative reporters for the unforgivable sin of Exposing the Evil of one of their largest advertisers.

from wiki:

Whistleblower lawsuit
In 1997, Wilson and Akre began work on a story regarding the agricultural biotechnology company Monsanto and recombinant bovine growth hormone (rBGH), a milk additive that had been approved for use by the Food and Drug Administration but also blamed for a number of health issues. Wilson and Akre planned a four-part investigative report on Monsanto's use of rBGH, which prompted Monsanto to write to Roger Ailes, president of Fox News Channel, in an attempt to have the report reviewed for bias and because of the "enormous damage that can be done" as a result of the report.[2]

WTVT did not run the report, and later argued in court that the report was not "breakthrough journalism". Wilson and Akre then claimed that WTVT's actions constituted the news broadcast telling lies, while WTVT countered that it was looking only for fairness.

According to Wilson and Akre, the two rewrote the report over 80 times over the course of 1997, and WTVT decided to exercise "its option to terminate their employment contracts without cause,"[3] and did not renew their contracts in 1998.

WTVT later ran a report about Monsanto and rBGH in 1998, and the report included defenses from Monsanto.[2]

When their contracts were not renewed, Wilson and Akre filed a lawsuit concerning WTVT's alleged news distortion under Florida's whistleblower laws,

claiming their termination was retaliation for "resisting WTVT's attempts to distort or suppress the Monsanto recombinant bovine growth hormone story."[3] In a joint statement,

Wilson claimed that he and Akre "were repeatedly ordered to go forward and broadcast demonstrably inaccurate and dishonest versions of the story," and "were given those instructions after some very high-level corporate lobbying by Monsanto (the agriculture company that makes the hormone)

and also ... by members of Florida’s dairy and grocery industries."[4] The trial commenced in summer 2000 with a jury dismissing all of the claims brought to trial by Wilson, but siding with one aspect of Akre's complaint, awarding Akre $425,000 and agreeing that Akre was a whistleblower because she believed there were violations of the Communications Act of 1934 and because she planned on reporting WTVT to the Federal Communications Commission.

An appeal was filed, and a ruling in February 2003 came down in favor of WTVT, who successfully argued that the FCC policy against falsification was not a "law, rule, or regulation", and so the whistle-blower law did not qualify as the required "law, rule, or regulation" under section 448.102 of the Florida Statutes.[5] ...

Because the FCC's news distortion policy is not a "law, rule, or regulation" under section 448.102 of the Florida Statutes,[5] Akre has failed to state a claim under the whistle-blower's statute."
[3] The appeal did not address any falsification claims, noting that "as a threshold matter ... Akre failed to state a claim under the whistle-blower's statute," but noted that the lower court ruled against all of Wilson's charges and all of Akre's claims with the exception of the whistleblower claim that was overturned.[3]

The 2003 documentary, The Corporation, , which was a 2 hr and 24 minute documentary, included a 10-minute section on Wilson and Akre discussing their battle with WTVT,

with Wilson claiming that the jury "determined that the story they pressured us to broadcast, the story we resisted telling, was in fact false, distorted, or slanted."[2]


[6] Project Censored called their story one of the "Most Censored Stories" of 2003,

[2] claiming that the
"Court Ruled That the Media Can Legally Lie.

Fox News was never intended to be a NEWS source from day one...it was created to be a pro Republican propaganda outlet from the start.

Right, the story goes something like Roger Ailes asked Nixon if he wanted to back a republican based TV source.
Nixon declined but "liked the idea" and told Ailes to go for it.
