Speaking of real "faux" news, anyone suprised by this Alesis Debat story?
AP, ABC and other news agencies getting fooled by Alexis Debat, a "news consultant" who has not only faked interviewing various people in the news but has also faked his own education and background. And he's been doing it for years with his writing serving as the main source for some of the AP's and ABC's stories. He even somehow got a job with the Nixon Center, a political think tank in D.C. which is a foreign policy advisory organization with a leaning toward the "realpolitik" or pragmatist view of foreign relations.
Liberals are known to suffer from Freudian Projection.

You do understand that O'Reilly and Hannity are commentators, not journalists. Outfoxed cries conspiracy because fox news keeps editorial control LIKE THEY ALL DO. But at least with your left wing lunacy you can get an ad in the New York Times for half the price everyone else pays.

I do know that O'Reilly was a 'commentator' on a Hollywood gossip show. Apparently that's the only credential you need to work for Murdoch...other than being able to take orders on what to say and when...

Outfoxed doesn't mention a conspracy, they talk to actual people who worked at Faux and they prove that the network is a joke, its a farce.
Murdoch puts out a talking point, which comes from the Repub party fax machine, and the entire gaggle of talking heads at Faux repeat verbatim what they are old to say...

They know there are plenty of people in this country who will never question anything as long as the label says "fair and balanced"

LOL

I was going to stay out of this one. But, here I go again

I sure am glad that Bob Wright, Ted Turner, Anne Sweeney, Janet Robinson, and Don Graham don't allow slanted views in their broadcasts.

See what I mean, it's like dealing with four year olds.

If you can't see that the things your fuhrer has done
Why is it you can't debate a topic without making attacks and over generalizations?

The irony of it all is name calling is a debate tactic of a 4 year old.

Remember CBS had proof of GWB and his NG days. So before you try to slam one news source, you should look and see that all news sources are biased and have been since the first news organization was created. So it is not one side, or one slant. FOX provides the counter to CNN and CBS. So together the total news is balanced, but one source alone is not, never has been and never will be.

The think I find really funny is how the left always attacks the people, not the issue.

Yet every time I've seen a discussion of global warming, the skeptics (typically conservative) attack Gore as if that somehow changes the realities of the science.

If Gore was actually reducing his "carbon footprint", Conservatives might listen to him. However, his do as I say, not as I do attitude is the problem, not his message.

Actually it is his message IMO. Political abuse of science. manufactured claims... The carbon footprint is just the amusing icing on the cake.

The thing that bugs me most is when someone posts a link exposing how the "scientific consensus" was manufactured, the left all runs and huddles into their politics and hysterics. Too quick to rush to dismiss it and not give it any thought at all. Thats what happens in a hyper polarized society. We all see it, we all hate it, yet it persists.

One link posted recently had a very interesting gent say he was astounded that so many folks can be running around " spitting firey contempt over a difference in opinion, that is not the scientific way"... summs it up perfectly IMO.

Thank you for proving my point for me. Global warming and Al Gore are not one and the same. It's actually possible to listen to the thousands of scientists and ignore Al Gore. But I've never met a skeptic that can debate global warming based on scientific facts.

Spork,

the only "facts" they can come up with are from the likes of the creationists who say the world is only 6000 years old, because the bible says so...

Thanks for posting that, remember to post that when you're trying to convince us how 'liberal' the corporate owned media is...lol

Fox is leading the race to the bottom here. Sensationalism and half-truths get ratings and the other corporate media outlets are following the money.

If you've ever spent any time in another country and watched their coverage you'd see that Americans are given a very limited scope of what is going on in the world.

Like mushrooms, keep 'em in the dark and feed 'em bull****...
Remember CBS had proof of GWB and his NG days.
If you're were following the story closely you'd know that the woman who typed the original document attested to the fact that the info was accurate but someone recreated the document. That wasn't the original document. Your fearless leader is a deserter...

There is a BIG difference between pointing out how one man says to make changes, yet does not himself, and blanket attacks on people you don't like or agree with.

I'd love to listen to what Gore says, but his actions speak so much louder than his words. When Gore takes a private plane to a premier of his movie about global warming...Well thats just sad. If he practiced what he says to do I would be much more inclined to listen to what he says.

Pointing that out is SO much more different than calling an entire news organization "Faux news", or calling Bush something to do with Hitler on every occasion you mention his name.

That is biased speculation on your part that Fox tops the list of bad. A prime example of you wanting something to be true, so you claim it is without proof or evidence.
Remember CBS had proof of GWB and his NG days.

Again you wish something to be true, you just claim it was. That whole story was shown to be BS and several people at CBS were fired for treating it like it was the truth.

The story here is how you automatically insult anyone that does not agree with your views. That includes Fox news.

So DON'T listen to what he says. Listen to what the scientists say. It is beyond me how people can't see that global warming and Al Gore are not the same thing.

Not sure why you're telling me this. I've never done either one.

Message to the "good Germans"

So let me get this straight...Al Gore flies in a jet, soooo all debate should stop on global warming. No need to prove outlandish claims that the entire scientific community of the world is "conspiring" to pull a hoax on the people of the world, and they named this hoax "global warming"

LOL, this just gets better by the minute!

This is a perfect example of cons behaving like four year olds...only a four year old would understand this logic...I certainly don't...

BTW, "FAUX" means fake in French..

Fox creates fake news, therefore the name "FAUX"

Get it?

Where's the insult?

BTW, 72% of Faux News watchers believe we have found WMD in Iraq...

that says it all

7% of journalists identify themselves as conservative while 38% identify themselves as liberal. Yet this bozo is throwing a hissy over Fox News commentary.
