    Post as many proven examples as you can find of Fox News or the Huffington Post getting caught lying. Biased reporting doesn't count. Only proven falsehoods please. Based on what many here like to say about both outlets, finding examples should be easy.

    Go!

    That is simultaneously funny as shit, and downright repugnant.

    i know, but does it qualify as lying, or is it just an honest mistake by a lowly staffer.

    The Hufpo cracks me up more than anything else.

    There's been a few examples of their titles meaning one thing, causing their readers, like TM, to post and make accusations based on the title. But if you read the whole story, it contradicts the title.

    I haven't read anything from FOX in a long time, so I'm not familiar with how they twist it.



    and no, I'm not going to get any of the stories. to much like work...
