We all know Fox News is evil and that it lies ceaselessly (my recent favourites include “accidentally” referring to Barrack Obama as ‘Osama’ and to Mark Foley as a Democrat). We also all know that the Commentisfree comments are full of illiterate gibbering nutcases of various different hues and ideologies.
However, ‘Lafayette’ has a very good point:
I find it particularly rich to see British folks holding up Fox News as the prime example for why American media is horrible. Murdoch’s formula for Fox is a simple one: take a British red-top and put it on American television.
I’d be interested to see a comparison in lies-per-fact between Fox and the Sun. I’d even consider doing it myself, except that reading the Sun tends to make me overly keen to exterminate the white working class.
