    You are such a fucking troll. Only you would think that your own ignorance on a topic is an argument.
    The link is to the exact story that I summed up in that post. Dan Rather tried to push a news story based on forged documents. Since you are proudly unaware of that, the link is to bring you up to speed. But since you are too fucking lazy to read it and perfectly happy to be ignorant, then there's nothing else to be done here except for you to shut the fuck up and leave this to people who actually are aware of the Dan Rather fake documents story.

    Ironically, the very people who claim the media is lying to them will believe blogs and non-journalistic websites that have no sources, no journalistic integrity, and is clearly written with a bias. And they have the never to call the major networks and other news "fake"

    the same people that call media biased, also claim all universities, educations centers, and science are all bias. So it shows who really has the bias

    You don't get any more factual than science, which even if they get things wrong from time to time, they correct it, theories change, and we know it works because we use all this technology which works, and is all based on science

    There is nothing news can do. The major papers and networks have standards. Things are going to go wrong, and when they do, they correct it. There is no such things a journalism that doesn't get some things wrong, or are mislead.

    But Fox news gets shit wrong all the time and doesn't even care, they do it on purpose. They clearly put bias into theri reporting, fail to report on facts that go against what they are peddling. Anybody intelligent and honest can see an article, a news report, and immediately see when they are putting a spin on it, rather than just reporting on the facts
    Dr Troll, who constantly whines and cries about "deflection" all the time, shows up and chants Fox News in a thread that has nothing to do with Fox News.

    Don't be an idiot. Fox has it's bias and the mainstream media has its.

    Surely you don't believe there should only be one media with one bias do you? Orrrr mebbe' you do in which case you aren't an idiot your an illiberal jackass.

    Well, mebbe' the joke's on me as jackass and idiot are synonymous. Oh well.

    Don't you love it when one writes a cogent and well constructed rebuttal, and the individual replying focusses upon one sentence that generally ignores the meat of one's point?

    Why fucking bother?

    This wasn't simply dismissing something as fake news. Dan Rather actually literally tried to push a news story based on forged documents.
    You do realize that while the document was forged the information in it was legitimate? The secretary who original typed up the document stated that while the document itself wasn't real it had the same info that the original had in it. The story was true but the document wasn't the original.
