Faux News : Fairly Imbalanced

by angryhippie

There have been a couple of reports lately from the Daily Show with Jon Stewart that have shone a light on the practices over at Fox News that have not only caught my eye, but have also turned my stomach. This is not something new, most of the programming and ignorant commentary produced by the network generally has that effect on my stomach, but I can really take no more. I am not only in support of the Obama Administration’s decision to boycott the channel, but I think that the rest of America not only needs to share in this boycott but that we would all be the better for it!

As Jon Stewart and crew points out in the videos below, the station’s practices are beyond appalling. The station fabricates stories and spreads falsehoods to push their agendas of discrimination, hate, and fear mongering…or as we saw during the Bush Administration the agenda handed to them by the neo-conservative White House. However you slice it, their title as a news channel is not misleading to the point of hysterical but also a flat out lie. And their slogan, ‘Fair and Balanced’, would be as laughable as the idea of their news channel classification if it wasn’t so fucking sad. Sad because, not only do masses of Americans buy into the bullshit, but they seem to believe it as well. Honestly, they take themselves fucking seriously…

How many more instances of improper practices do we really need to suffer? Fox News should just change their names to Faux News : Fairly Imbalanced, and at least then, when the public does suffer through their hourly bile spillage they will be told up front that it is complete and utter shite! Turn the channel, people. This proverbial antagonistic peanut gallery is no longer needed. We want to move forward to a more open-minded and accepting America, and as long as these poisoned tongued misfits are paraded around and passed off to the public as legitimate news agents, that will never fucking happen! Let us take back the airwaves, people.
