Wat?  You know he was in charge of fund raising for NPR and not dictating policy, right? I guess Fox News left that part out.

Ahhh plausible deniability.  The liberals are soooo smart.

Plausible deniability for what?

Like we are all surprised OKeefe used questionable editing practices.  Doesn't make much of a difference on some of the stuff thats said.  Hence the resignation. 

BTW can I start using the Blaze as a reliable news source now?  It would make things alot easier.

Depends on if the person who reported this still has a job in a month. If not then it should be clear why.

When debating a biblical literalist, it is most effective to cite the bible. This doesn't mean for a moment that I give the bible any credit.
...It is not hypocritical to appeal to another sources in order to directly show problems from within your opponents framework.

If I'd posted a link to Slate, or Huffington Post you probably would have been skeptical.  I'd already read several different sources and simply chose the one I knew you would be most likely to believe, my reply was tailored for you. I'd never use The Blaze as a source in and of itself, but I might use it as a jumping off point, sorta like Wikipedia.

The only reason you guys think Fox News is more biased than the others is because it's slant doesn't align with your political beliefs. Is that so hard to admit?

Neither does MSNBC, but I still content that Fox is far more biased.

Incorrect. I respect conservative viewpoints much more than what I see on Fox.

I think Fox News is horribly biased because of the staggering proportions of lies, misrepresentations, omitted data, and flawed logic I see aired. For an extensive list, check out the list of cited instances clearly portraying bias on Fox new on liberalviewer's youtube. Don't get caught up on the name, as the content of those videos is logical scrutiny, usually by adding information you can check. --Not a criticism of rightwing issues. Make sure you're on the correct playlist though.

I think Fox news is biased because of their admission to firing employees during the investigation of bovine growth hormone for trying to report on the problems with the hormone.

I think Fox news is biased for issuing memos to their employees that directly tells them what republican issues to ignore and what democratic things to harp on or even invent.

I think Fox news is biased for allowing (and most likely encouraging) many of their alleged 'reporters', to knowingly lie on the air, and then defending that right to directly fabricate news in court.

Classic psychological projection. If that's how he filters news channels, that's what he'll expect others to do.

I don't think anyone implied that any news source is perfect, as you seem to think.  Some are just better (as in less biased) than others.

Use a local news channel. They're usually good, even the ones labelled with the "Fox" name.

Al Jazeera is usually pretty good, too.

You don't need to know about that. If you like I can write you a script that will feed you a daily dose of paranoia and ensure your gun cabinet is well stocked. It will mostly involve aerial footage of black people running.

Of course, though I didn't organize most of it. I just reviewed and researched it once it had been compiled.

I recommend Netflixing the DVD "Outfoxed". It delves much deeper into the subjects than my brief synopsis, and actually includes many more examples of Fox's crimes against journalism. But yeah, they interviewed several of the employees fired for pushing the bovine hormone story in detail and let's us look at photocopies of the written documentation AND the departmental memos outlining intentional bias. It even shows a few clips of Fox reporters directly lying... something youtube has done for us many hundreds of times.


I don't think I implied that any new source was perfect.  I just asked him where he thought we should be getting our news from.  

Anywhere else? If you know something is disinformative propaganda, move on to the next station. I can't claim I have done the same amount of research on other channels, but trying out an uncertain variation of the average is better than sticking to a certainty that is far below average.

It has nothing to do with that. They make outright lies.
