OFFICIAL: FOX 'NEWS' IS NOT NEWS SO THEY DON'T HAVE TO TELL THE TRUTH

Fox IS NOT News
overtly biased "news" stories that were filled with misrepresentations and outright lies. PolitiFact has rated sixty percent of their their work as "Mostly False," "False," or "Pants on Fire." THE OTHER CABLE NEWS NETWORKS DON'T EVEN COME CLOSE TO THAT DUBIOUS ACHIEVEMENT.

Nevertheless Fox News has the largest audience.

The mission of Fox News from its inception was to advance the agenda of America's conservatives and the Republican Party. That could not have been more obvious due to its founding by ultra-rightist Rupert Murdoch and GOP media strategist Roger Ailes. The network has spent the last twenty years defaming liberals and Democrats while vigorously supporting right-wing politicians and policies.

Much of what Fox News produced brazenly ignored the standards of professional journalism. They aired overtly biased "news" stories that were filled with misrepresentations and outright lies. PolitiFact has rated sixty percent of their their work as "Mostly False," "False," or "Pants on Fire." THE OTHER CABLE NEWS NETWORKS DON'T EVEN COME CLOSE TO THAT DUBIOUS ACHIEVEMENT.
This shameful record may have contributed to Fox News being yanked from British television for what they said was lack of viewers.

Now Fox News CEO Rupert Murdoch is trying to acquire the remaining portion of Sky Broadcasting (a European network) that he doesn't already own. The U.K. has some stringent requirements for approving media deals that will impact the independence of the nation's journalism. They also review any deal that could put too much power into the hands of a single outlet. On those grounds their Office of Communications (OFCOM) has been investigating Murdoch and his 21st Century Fox corporation.

Unfortunately for Murdoch, concerns about Fox News are stalling, and might kill, the approval process. The network is awash in scandals involving presenters and executives engaging in sexual harassment and related misconduct. They fired their now-deceased CEO Roger Ailes, their top star Bill O'Reilly, host Eric Bolling, among others. That doesn't look good to the regulatory body considering the acquisition.

And that's not all. Fox News is also being scrutinized for its reporting and its chumminess with Donald Trump and his administration. Talking Points Memo writes that:

"British authorities have increased scrutiny of the impending deal following several complaints raising concerns that the Fox News parent company is not fit to own Sky News. That scrutiny followed several resignations at Fox News over allegations of sexual harassment, as well as a lawsuit alleging that the network worked with the Trump administration to push a conspiracy theory about a murdered Democratic National Committee staffer."
The characterization of the personnel matters as "resignations" is overly generous. These slimeballs did not leave voluntarily. But their terminations were also not likely due to Fox having a moral awakening. In fact, it was more likely a self-serving attempt to appease the U.K. regulators by trying to show that they were correcting their problems.

However, the most troubling conclusions coming out of OFCOM's review were related directly to the editorial content of Fox News. In an ironic twist wherein the agency was actually defending approval, they offered an odd justification for why Fox's misreporting should not stand in the way:

"In dismissing complaints about certain claims made on Fox News shows, Ofcom determined that 'Hannity,' 'Tucker Carlson Tonight,' and 'Fox and Friends' are not news programs and therefore do not have a 'due accuracy requirement.'"
To be clear, the agency is making a judgment call that those programs do not qualify as "news." Consequently, they have no obligation to report factually or even to tell the truth. Anyone who has watched for more than a couple of minutes already knows that those shows have abandoned fact-checking and honesty. And now their flagrantly unethical standards may actually help the company's acquisition bid. But they would have to accept the argument that they are allowed to lie because they aren't really news. So far, Fox News has not complained about this characterization of their programming. What does that tell you?

Daily Kos is fake News for libtards who want to believe...

What they offer is opinion journalism masquerading as journalism:

QUOTE: The mission of Fox News from its inception was to advance the agenda of America's conservatives

The fact is Murdochs' sons have taken over and they are more left leaning, because they want to be invited to all the best parties and because they are Fox, the elites in their ivory tower don't accept them. That is why scared little men run from Fox, because they don't want to be tagged as a racist Trump supporter. This is a feeling, not a reality.

FACT: Fox hires more Demorats than Republicans and tries at least to be fair and balanced unlike CNN which will only hire anti-Trumpers,

Another dishonest post by Jazz and Daily Kos. Sad to see your reading material is so low class. Not that Fox is so great, but at least they have Tucker and he tells the truth. That's why they hate him so much at CNN and libtards in general.

Do facts interest Trump cucks at all?

Apparently not because journalists exposing Fox agenda of lying for GOP have existed for years and years now.

Look it up.

Fox sold us the Iraq war after 911

Fox synchs with GOP and talk radio daily for the talking points.

“Sad” is the cult vulnerability to such a con job as Trump.

Man up

None of this means that everyone else has to be unbiased.

They want ratings too, and especially Fox turned news into entertainment, that is why real journalists dismiss everything they do. THAT REASON IS LEGITIMATE

Indeed.

Actually I am. I'm using logic, but the importance of that seems to miss you.

Saying "news source XYZ says blah" is only relevant if XYZ is credible. If XYZ is not credible, or even seems to have an agenda, then what they say is of less credibility/significance, and should be more heavily scrutinized.

I've said it more than once (to you, actually) that I think fox lies along w/ lots of others, like cnn.

But you keep doing this:


You're dismissive of the opposite narrative, not the news source. You just say you dismiss the source. Then, you accuse others of the exact same thing. Wake up.

No no no, all news is biased.

That is lesson number one.

No that Fox made news into entertainment the industry biases are extreme SO THEY CAN GET RATINGS TOO

News that doesn't inspire people to eat endangered species, murder and eat the poor on principle, shoot the browns, deny their children vaccinations, dump dioxin in baby formula, demand complete deregulation of the financial services industry and eliminate taxes on billionaires is by definition fiction and therefore FOX!
