    Roger Ailes and the rise of Fox News

    "Even Rupert Murdoch is afraid of Roger Ailes, the paranoid boss of Fox News. But 'the Chairman' is using his power to make Americans more rightwing, more ignorant and ever more terrified."

    Oh, thank you. We've been praying someone would notice.

    Does Maryland's study mean anything like the old say, "Stupid is as stupid does"?

    How about Soros and the rise of Media Matters etc? Or are they ok cuz they're left wing.

    Stop trying to silence people. Idiot. Don't like Fox? Turn the fucking channel. Seems simple enough... except for the more moronic lefties who seem to think that 'freedom of speech' translates to 'freedom from any speech I disagree with'.

    Seems so. And they're so freakin rabid! Some of my high school classmates are big into Fox, and it's ... like talking to zombies, really.

    Of course your telling the same old lies;

    {“Who are the most consistently misinformed media viewers?” The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart asked Chris Wallace this weekend on Fox News Sunday. “The most consistently misinformed? Fox, Fox viewers, consistently, every poll.”

    Actually, though, he was the one misinforming the viewers.

    PolitiFact looked at three different surveys, which showed mixed results. One June 2010 survey showed that “Fox actually scored better than its two direct cable-news rivals — MSNBC, which is a liberal counterpoint to Fox, and CNN, which is considered more middle-of-the-road. Also scoring lower than Fox were local television news, the evening network news shows and the network morning shows.”}

    Hey though, lying through your fucking teeth is just what you leftists do....
