What kind of people would pay money to watch propaganda designed to perpetuate their ignorance?

No, Serrano, we’re talking about Faux news. Try to keep up.

i will grant you, if you want vapid gazes from a bottle blond of a certain age, that’s where you go.

Spreading lies, propaganda and racist troopers on a global scale.

We've got it in Australia. So funny to watch when there's nothing on.At least they're an equal opportunity employer. Anybody with a deranged look about them gets a gig.

Only a fascist fool would take their news from the dirty digger. That's why fox is Trump's favourite news channel.

Where Murdoch goes, right-wing populism follows, with predictable results. Thanks to them we’ve had such wonderful things as the Iraq War and a non-scientific response to a global viral pandemic. What other price will we have to pay in the future for their ignorance and cynicism?

The same kinda people who pay for CNN. The number one station for propaganda designed to perpetuate ignorant people.

Fox "news" has a higher viewership than CNN. Fox is the "number one station for propaganda designed to perpetuate ignorant people". Fox is the most MainStream of Medias.

Finally, a News channel that focuses on reality.

LMFAO almost choked on my sandwich,

recent court hearing FOX stated they are not a news channel but an entertainment network, spread false misleading lies is one of the reason AMerica is doing so badly in this pandemic

That link from the Democrat driven media hit piece "Now This" 

there are many links on YT both Republican and Democrat that call out Fox all the time. Even Fox has called out Trump

gravitating to a network that gives multiple viewpoints of various news story and not just being a network that bashes Trump 24/7

multiple viewpoints doesn't make them facts, coronavirus isn't the flu , coronavirus isn't a hoax, Trump has handled the pandemic with competence. American isnt ranked 7th highest deaths per capita in the world because they have more testing , its ranked that high because of more infections meaning not enough is done to contain the spread, even FOX called out Trump on his "misleading viewpoints" thats arent facts. That the thing with science and math it'll always belittle the deniers

. In 12 years they didn't heavily go after Obama or Hillary....odd.

because maybe they didn't get it wrong so often. Just look at Supreme and Federal courts Trump has had about 80% of decisions go against him, so it shows the constitution doesn't even agree with Trump on the majority of issues. Are we going to attack the constitution now because it doesn't agree with us!?

multiple viewpoints doesn't make them facts,

Doesn't make them not facts and facts change. YT Fauci and his constant changes and for liberals to think that Fauci is the only Doctor with the expertise to give a professional medical opinion is just laughable.

Trump has handled the pandemic with competence.

As did Newsom, Cuome, DeBlasio and Whittaker and other Dem leaders as well

American isnt ranked 7th highest deaths per capita in the world because they have more testing , its ranked that high because of more infections meaning not enough is done to contain the spread,

Because the media in the US is more concerned with force feeding the public with 24/7 coverage of the infection rate, but not mentioning the death rate decline and the infection rate on a 30% decline, no mention of that.

even FOX called out Trump on his "misleading viewpoints" thats arent facts.

On some things, yes, but on others like Trump's travel ban during this crisis, they praised him as did Fauci.

That link from the Democrat driven media hit piece "Now This" always have selectively picked out tidbit nuggets they like that they can use to attack conservatives. The claims weren't lies, they are opposing viewpoints with experts that gave an opposing opinion and that's what debate is about and liberals want conservatives quiet and kept in the basement like back in the old days before there was a more conservative leaning network. CNN allowed only conservative points of view on Sundays with old Bob Novak sparing with some liberal that's the extent of it, but because these networks get beat to a pulp nightly goes to show how people are gravitating to a network that gives multiple viewpoints of various news story and not just being a network that bashes Trump 24/7

Yes and there is nothing wrong with that, every President was called out on issues, all of them, nothing new, but "Now This" has always been actively working to undermine conservatives for years. In 12 years they didn't heavily go after Obama or Hillary....odd.

They went after Romney, hated the guy, but when he suggested Trump should be impeached that site praised Trump....hmmmm...

Fox is the most MainStream of Medias.

Now if the other local msm stream networks what are they going to do and more importantly, what will they do if Trump loses? I can tell you exactly, they'll be right back to where they were and that's losing viewership again because their won't be anyone to attack, they'll never go after Joe or Harris for that matter and going after the Republicans won't help their ratings, not helping them now and they would further erode. Maybe if they go back to telling news like they did back so, so long ago, people might watch.

The model blocks diversity of thought and content because the networks have incentive to amplify fringe voices and events, at the expense of others… all because it pumps up the ratings,” Pekary continued. “This cancer risks human lives, even in the middle of a pandemic.”

The former MSNBC producer wrote that “this cancer risks our democracy,” too, and that “context and factual data are often considered too cumbersome for the audience.” On rare occasions, “the producers will choose to do a topic or story without regard for how they think it will rate, but that is the exception, not the rule,” she noted.

“Again, personally, I don’t think the people need to change,” Pekary explained. “I think the job itself needs to change. There is a better way to do this. I’m not so cynical to think that we are absolutely doomed (though we are on that path). I know we can find a cure.”

Yeah, CNN and MSDNC are really despicable.

What kind of people would pay money to watch propaganda designed to perpetuate their ignorance?

Half the country and if presenting opposing viewpoints, with the largest watched cable news at number one beating the competition for over 20 years is considered ignorant then so be it.

Finally the rest of the world will have access to fair and balanced news.

-12 ( +1 / -13 )

Finally, a News channel that focuses on reality. Can’t understand why some people actually believe that CNN is truthful but Fox is not. CNN supports radical protests, riots, looting and doesn’t report the killing of children and so on. Fox reports all news.
