Fox ‘News’ Exposed For Blatantly Lying To Its Viewers

Table of Contents
The fascist news outlet is being blasted for blatantly lying to its viewers so they don't lose them to more radical networks.

If you watch the news to get informed you might want to delete Fox News from your network. Watching Fox ‘News’ is like a smorgasbord of fallacies in logic and reasoning tied in with extreme right wing biases. Mixed with video and reports of cherry-picked content that more often than not lack important context. A study was done and showed that people who watch Fox ‘News’ actually know less about the real world than people who watch no news at all. If that’s not the definition of a propaganda network, I don’t know what is.

I maintain a hard rule of not listening to people I’ve caught lying to me. And I hold the same rule for my news outlets.

Fox 'News' Defamation of Dominion and the United States Election Process

Fox ‘News’ is being exposed in court for its latest, and perhaps most sinister, work of misleading its viewers. The reports of how blatantly Fox ‘News’ acted in deceiving its viewers from the truth about Dominion voting machines and the integrity of U.S. elections are quite damning and it appears Fox is on its way to losing a massive settlement – in the billions – for choosing to lie to its viewers to make them happy and keep them from moving to more radical propaganda outlets like OAN and Newsmax. 

It can be hard to keep up with the ongoing case, but you can check in here as I’ll continue to update this post with the latest revelations as they come out in court.

Study: Viewers of Fox News Less Informed of World Events Than Those Who Don't Watch Any News

Fairleigh-Dickinson political science professor Dan Cassino said of the study, “the results show us that there is something about watching Fox News that leads people to do worse on these questions than those who don’t watch any news at all.”
