Fox news has been outed time and time again to not be news, some people from the network even claimed they are entertainment, not news. Yes, the entire planet is liberally biased except this one network. Seriously, these people are so far beyond any help or reasoning. Hopefully we can stop other idiots from being brainwashed

    The whole "Fox has the best ratings on cable" (note..."cable") thing from the Right...is easily explained in an analogy.

    Imagine a small town where there are five ice cream shops. ONLY ONE sells pistachio. Just one.

    The ice cream buyers in the town who DO like pistachio go to that ONE ice cream parlor.

    The ice cream buyers in the town who DON'T like pistachio but perfer other flavors SPLIT between the other four shops.


    Thus to the eye, the ONE pistacho-carrying ice cream parlor is "the most popular ice cream parlor."

    It also explains why they all say the same stupid deflections, copy the same stupid links, and all just repeat the same talking points they hear on Fox, and why liberals, who get their sources from all over the place, have so much variety in their positions, their arguments, some even arguing with each other. THe Fox news crew are just like brainwashed drones spouting the same shit they have been programmed to say.

    A judge will allow a lawsuit against CNN regarding an allegedly defamatory story to go forward, and that means CNN is fake news and will soon be put out of business.

    And therefore any news station that gets sued, whether successfully or not, is fake news and will soon be out of business.

    That's the Rightwing Media Echo Chamber Effect....

    same reason the Righties were stunned that Obama beat Romney in 2012 (though they all claim NOW... "I KNEW Romney was going to lose the whole time.")


    BTW, that doesn't apply in 2016....when even a lot of Rightwingers thought Trump was going to lose, same as the rest of us. (Ask Spookycolt)

    the largest age group which watches network news is over 65 years of age. Primetime network viewership average age is 57 years.

    Network news numbers have shrunk steadily and continue to do so. For the left to try and shape public opinion, the network news is no longer a good vehicle and that is why FaceBook is so important to the Democrat party.

    and Facebook is full of political memes, fake news, nonsense, highly prejudicial opinion pieces along with real information. That's why critical thinking is so important.
