Fox News (FOXPEN)




What better way to end the day than with a reminder of why we do not watch Fox News?

FOXPEN (Fox Propaganda And Entertainment Network)

Name that Rapper. Laura Ingraham


Now hear this! Poll Numbers fit for a Carnival tent ticket.



Watch Dobbs a day later..after you used that figurative carnival tent ticket. OOOOPS!



The following is an excerpt The Mashable: 12 major Fox News quality reports from 2018. Or, should I type a lack of quality reports?

Eric Trump's anti-semitic comment

In September, while appearing on Fox News, presidential son Eric Trump took a shot at legendary journalist Bob Woodward and his Trump-related book by saying it was just an effort "to make three extra shekels." No one in the Fox News studio batted an eyelash.
Why was this such a big deal? As Mashable's Morgan Sung wrote at the time about Trump's use of "shekel":
The word for Israeli currency is also a favorite of 4chan and other racist boards. The Daily Stormer, a white supremacist neo-Nazi Holocaust denial site, frequently uses "shekel" to describe anti-Semitic conspiracy theories. 
Unless you're either literally in Israel or spending a lot of time in these alt-right spaces, it's pretty unlikely that you'll even use "shekel" in your daily vocabulary.
If it was just a blind spot for everyone involved, then that is one hell of a shared blind spot. The comments are even worse given the that a month later, a gunman killed 11 people in a Pittsburgh synagogue while shouting anti-semitic slurs.

Oh, the Joy of Fox News.
