Fox News: A Danger To Your Brain And Psyche

Trump's latest defection has landed squarely on the NFL. After securing a so-called by Trump "win" from uber-wealthy team owners regarding the practice of taking a knee during the national anthem, the Super Bowl winners and Trump have parted company visiting the White House. The number of players willing to attend dwindled to less than a dozen (the figure included at least be assistant and a water boy aid). Trump canceled the visit as is his practice of canceling on-camera opportunities which will not bode well for his ego.

If you live in the US, each news networks and prefer Fox News, you probably watched Trump's favorite TV news show feed his ego via making a fool of themselves supporting his team visit cancellation.  You may have absorbed yet another example of the feebleness and lack of professionals at Fox.  Fox News (interns or maybe producers) located a video of Philadelphia Eagles players taking a knee, to feed its viewers. Well, there is a problem. Not once in the 2017 Season did even one Eagles layer take a knee. Nonetheless, Fox needed feed for its ravenous hordes of morning viewers and it's number one viewer: Trump
Bears Eagles Football  

Does the guy above seem to be kneeling during the national anthem?

We have witnessed retractions, corrections, and admissions of lies across the full spectrum of cable news TV. Yet we find many more such admissions of lies from Fox News than any television network.

Here is Fox a day after its early morning Fox feeding.

"During our report about President Trump canceling the Philadelphia Eagles trip to the White House to celebrate their Super Bowl win, we showed unrelated footage of players kneeling in prayer." (1 of 2)

11:13 AM - Jun 5, 2018
"To clarify, no members of the team knelt in protest during the national anthem throughout regular or post-season last year. We apologize for the error." -Christopher Wallace, Executive Producer of FOX News @ Night with Shannon Bream (2 of 2)
11:13 AM - Jun 5, 2018

Fox News apology is like pouring water on a hot griddle and claiming you didn't mean for the water to evaporate. Take a few minutes and watch Fox News in action.

Fox News's O'Reilly Busted Again; Tucker Carlson Throws A Tantrum

Yesterday we published a piece which included Fox News's most recent and most blatant example of booking "fake" guest for spewing utter lies on its most popular news shows (e.g. O'Reilly, Hannity). 

The short story about the 39 second YouTube segment which follows is: this guest is an outright liar, convicted and NOT in any way an official for Sweden.

First view a quick reminder of how O'Reilly and Fox News arrived at a common place (a story with a lying guest who is a literal fraud.)  Donald Trump during a recent rally speech followed the misleading lead of another Fox News host's, Tucker Carlson,  misleading news segment. Trump spoke about Sweden Muslim immigrant riots when there was no such civil unrest. 

After Swedish officials and Swedish citizens disavowed any civil unrest we felt compelled to comment via a post

If you did not visit the link, the essence of the post was the following video from an utter fraud.

If you wish to view the full four-plus minute segment with O'Reilly and his producers at that lying best, click here.

On Monday night, the anticipated took place.  O'Reilly on Fox News airtime, again admitting a "fake news" story. As you view the segment notice O'Reilly places a barrier between the psyche of his sycophant viewers and the reality of a "fake news' guest via the use of the world's "left-wing" media.  

A couple of points. What if left-wing media wasn't monitoring Fox News? Yes, of course, the lying guest and Fox producers would have successfully handed yet another "fake news" story to their viewers.  Moreover, the network would have successfully fulfilled its role as a broadcast division of GOP and conservative international communication.

Trump is no longer a lying presidential candidate; he is a lying US President.  

While somewhat unnecessary, we thought we'd end this piece with a couple of fact checks regarding Trump's Sweden unrest.

What would a piece about Fox News read like without mention of its newest propagandist: Tucker Carlson? Arguing with Bill Nye is fruitless when the topic relates to climate change.

Megyn Kelly Rivals Hannity For Tops in Broadcast Lies

The Key To this false story? Michelle Maulkin. Image via Firseshot screen capture

The Fox News business model is widely known and accepted as conservative propaganda laced with entertainment.  When the clock strikes 5:00PM EST, the Fox News machine kicks into high gear. The network;s audience is home, either preparing for dinner m sitting for dinner, or finished with dinner and ready for a full evening of "sycophant feed."

Even if the fact that Fox News has been researched to be accurate only 18% of the time, the Fox News uniform of the day figuratively (hopefully not literally).

Fox News Goes Full Metal Tin Foil Hat with Claim Obama Blackmailed Petraeus

In July 2014 The America Blog published the following

PunditFact: Fox News wins battle for most-false cable network

7/11/2014 8:00am by John Aravosis

Fox News has won the battle for most-false cable network.

A new survey by the Tampa Bay Times’ PunditFact, looking at the veracity of cable networks, found that Fox News won (or lost) the first prize for having the most falsehoods studied.

According to PunditFact, Fox News’ on-air talent were mostly false, false, or “pants on fire” 60% of the time.

MSNBC ranked second in falsehoods, at 46% of the time.

And CNN ranked a lowly (or uply) 18% level of falsehoods – meaning, CNN did a pretty good job getting it right.
After many episodes of Fox News caught intentionally using video unrelated to stories through Megyn Kelly's now famous "white Santa; white Jesus" remarks this past December, 12th, it is impossible for any sane person to recognize the Fox News business model.

"Give the viewers massive doses of lies misinformation, manipulate the viewers psyche and fulfill the mission of its owners: "deliver for conservative America." 

As we move towards the mid-term elections, Fox is as busy as an Ant Farm (tm) exposes to daylight in delivering false information. This past Tuesday, Megyn Kelly aired another segment that comes-in lower than any form of "yellow journalism." Watch the segment and we will show the full scope of Kelly and her productions teams commitment to false reporting.

Now for a 38 second clip of a local broadcast post Kelly's latest truth failure. (Hat Tip to Mediaite)

Last night Rachel Maddow addressed the Fox News misinformation. No one needs to posit beyond Maddow's typically detailed and thorough reporting. 

Despite common knowledge Fox News is not about the business of accurate reporting of news and current events, I remain bewildered at the extent to which the network will wantonly and deliberately lie to its sycophant viewers.

McCain, Fox News, ISIS And The Big Lie

Can you imagine this man as President of the United States?

In today's Senate hearing, McCain leveled a series of condescending questions to General Dempsey. 

McCain's wanton lust for all out war, is utterly shameful. As a US Senator, McCain has a long history of poor judgment, literal wrong doing as a US Senator, and erratic decision-making. 

How about this guy as his Secretary of Defense?

In 2013 McCain pulled what at the time seemed like a treasonous acot. His meetings with the so-called "Free Syrian Army" and its then Gen. Salim Idris, also included active (and visual) conservation with the now current leader of ISIS: Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

Free Syrian Army, Gen. Salim Idris, the fellow in the striped shirt there (Idris was ousted in February of this year).


Now, let's take a Fox News look at ISIS and the business of Right-wing propaganda.

Fox News Lies: ISIS Leader Released By George W. Bush!

And, to sum it all up.  Take a look at Fox News feeds for its viewers. Do you believe one Fox viewer noticed the incompetent production graphics.

Consumer Reports Vs. Sean Hannity And Fox News (Another Bad Week For Hannity)


Hannity has offend yet another information source with lies and a very misleading broadcast. Consumer Reports is the latest victim of Fox baiting its viewers. The segment from Media Matters is linked below.

When will Fox New come to grips with the fact, Sean Hannity is not an asset to their network?   The network has mission that involves broadcast that are comprehensively anti-Democrat  (democratic principles) and a heightened mission of feeding its viewers "Obama Derangement Syndrome (ODS)"; understood.  However, Hannity and his producers are embarrassingly caught and revealed for false reporting at least once per month.

Recently MSNBC broadcast a few segments related to his manipulation of his audience in something of a game show staged testimonial format is frankly despicable. The MSNBC segments were developed around a Salon Dot Com set of fact-checking calls to actual Hannity show participants.  The episode was shameful and it was initial in the manner in which it was developed.  One guest family indicated Obamacare would influence their business staffing model.  The family has a place in media history for lying regarding a law that doesn't even impact their employee census.  The family employed less than ten employees. Obamacare has a provisional requirement for  a businesses with 50 or more employees.  

And , therein lies a clear illustration of Fox News. No one on the Fox News staff knows the provisions of Obamacare enough to even perpetrate effective subterfuge. Now that is a sad state of affairs and a smack against any viewer with any degree of intellect that is not clouded by ODS. Actually, the Fox News Model leverages such reports. Network management is aware people who view their broadcast, will go no farther with research beyond that spewed during their broadcasts.  They also know viewers will not watch other news networks, to the prospect of their ploys inserting deep into the minds of their viewers is as solid as granite.

Fox News producers responsible for the Hannity Show, have to conscience. They also do not appear to care about discovery that makes Hannity appear as a highly compensated charlatan.  

Consumer Reports, on of the most credible of research organization, has taken the network to task for embellishing (via the lie) of their stories.

Fox News; Hannity 'lies' About Aftermath Ambassador (Video)

Hannity video below......

A coupe of days back I ran across a news report and video of Fox News' (AKA Propaganda and GOP Public Relations Outlet) Sean Hannity misrepresenting the sorrowful details of US Ambassador Stevens' death and aftermath. As I had previously heard details of how the dying Ambassador was rescued from the consulate to expire later at a hospital, I felt the need to dig deep and expose Hannity for what he is: a lying demagogue who feeds thed minds of Fox News sycophants. The Young Turks, Cenk Ugyar, saved me hours of researching, cutting and pasting, and contemplation of how best to layout a fact. The fact is Fox News is not a true news source and those who work at the network from the owner (Ruppert Murdoch) down through their news writers know their role in America.  You know their role in the nation, and hopefully you are not addicted to their cognitive manipulation and propaganda.

Apparently, Hannity and his producers have developed a segment for tapping into highly emotional sentiments. He and his propaganda team has actually taken the death of US Ambassador Stevens, a planned attack on an unguarded facility, and develop a segment only fit for viewing in the hellish chambers of Lucifer.

Before we move to the segment, allow a few moments of facts related to the death of the Ambassador. First, allow me to unabashedly state reports are coming forth that the Ambassador was poorly protected and reports of pending danger were not handled properly.  But,  lets deal with a few issues related to Fox News special efforts to inflame. 

First and foremost the credibility of Fox News as a news source. Let's view a Cenk Ugyar 2 minute segment.  

Cenk Ugyar, Current TV, The Young Turks

Current TV, is a progressive news channel, so allow me to post parts of the Fairleigh Dickinson University study.

The Fairleigh Dickinson University Study (pdf)

Excerpt I.

Media outlets such as Fox News and MSNBC have a negative impact on people’s current events knowledge while NPR and Sunday morning political talk shows are the most informative sources of news, according to Fairleigh Dickinson University’s newest PublicMind survey.

Researchers asked 1,185 random nationwide respondents what news sources they had consumed in the past week and then asked them questions about events in the U.S. and abroad.

On average, people correctly answered 1.6 of 5 questions about domestic affairs.

Because the aim of the study was to isolate the effects of each type of news source, they then controlled for variables such as other news sources, partisanship, education and other demographic factors.

They found that someone who watched only Fox News would be expected to answer 1.04 domestic questions correctly compared to 1.22 for those who watched no news at all. Those watching only "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" answered 1.42 questions correctly and people who only listened to NPR or only watched Sunday morning political talk shows answered 1.51 questions correctly.

Excerpt II.

It is a follow-up to a 2011 survey of 612 New Jerseyans that found, among other things, that those who watched Fox News were 18 points less likely to know that Egyptians overthrew their government than those who watch no news at all.



Second, credible reports of the Ambassador found alive in a closet.

Mediaite Photos with Getty Images captions (graphic)

According to the Getty caption for the image below, the photo shows Libyan civilians attempting to help Stevens following the overnight attack.

A second image was posted by Getty, again captioned as Libyan civilians helping an unconscious man identified as 52-year-old Christopher Stevens:

Within days of the attack NPR reproted an AP story indicating young Libyans found Ambassador Stevens alive, celebrated and exclaimed to God about 'someone found alive', and efforts to remove the man from the house. ran a definitive article on the same days as the NPR report. Both articles quoted AP sources.

He is still alive!': Video shows the moment ambassador's body is pulled from embassy . . . as witness says he was breathing 
  • Video shows a man later found to be Ambassador Chris Stevens being pulled out of a room following attack in Benghazi 
  • Libyans reportedly shout 'God is great!' after finding out that Stevens is alive and breathing 
  • He later died of smoke inhalation
Ambassador Chris Stevens was still breathing as Libyans pulled him from a room where he was found after last week's attack on the American consulate in Benghazi, according to an eyewitness.  

A video shot after the assault on the consulate shows people scrambling to save Stevens after he was discovered in a room of the building.  

Fahd al-Bakoush said he was there when a crowd pulled Stevens out of the room inside the consulate where someone stumbled across him, thinking he was dead. 
      No one knew who he was.
            Scroll down for video

 Help: The Libyans can be seen showing concern as they try to clear the way to get Stevens out of the room in the burned out consulate building in Benghazi

Desperate: Stevens' legs can be seen emerging from the doorway as Libyans are apparently trying to help him
Desperate: Stevens' legs can be seen emerging from the doorway as Libyans are apparently trying to help him Al-Bakoush told the Associated Press on Monday that Stevens was breathing, though his face was blackened and he seemed paralyzed.  

A translation provided by The New York Times shows that one of the Libyans said: 'I swear, he's dead.' 

Another man says: 'Bring him out, man! Bring him out,' another says.

There is hope as others are heard saying: 'The man is alive. Move out of the way. Just bring him out, man. 

'Move, move, he is still alive!'

Struggle: A crowd that had developed around the entrance to the room shouted with joy after Stevens' was found to still be alive, but he later died at a hospital

Struggle: A crowd that had developed around the entrance to the room shouted with joy after Stevens' was found to still be alive, but he later died at a hospital 

The crowd that had formed in the area then shouts: 'Alive, Alive! God is great.' 

Al-Bakoush said the crowd carried Stevens to a private car to drive him to a hospital, since there was no ambulance.

Linked video of Ambassador Stevens removal from the house (Quality is not great)

Now, let's take a look at Fox News at its best.  You will notice the Fox News video is much shorter. It seems to be taken from another angle than the AP/NPR video. Of utmost significance, is Hannity's use of inflammatory words, like "Looters", Dragged through the streets". After watching the 42 seconds of Hannity, much of which is consumed with still shot photos posted above, think about seeing dragging.  As I watched the video, I saw absolutely no evidence of abuse of desecration of  the the Ambassador.

Romney's Use of Southern-Strategy Code is Telling And Sad!

Arrange the letters from Genesis 26:5–10 in a 33 column grid and you get a word search with "Bible" and "code". Myriad other arrangements can yield other words.
GOP Southern Strategy Code.....Romney and his son have used it.
After Mitt Romney chose to "go there", joke of no joke, his comments about a decent campaign, and a high road campaign, leveled to that of Donald Trumps seething lies about a birth certificate. I know you saw it and heard it, but for sake of a complete screed, I am re posting Romney remarks.

As the GOP candidate spoke the remarks my thoughts spread across a cognitive spectrum.  First, his attempt at humor was indicative of how humor rolls from the mouths of wealthy people (non-comedians). It just seems to fail to work.  Actually, allow me to be more specific, how humor rolls off the lips of wealthy conservatives.

I offer as an example the Rick Santorum 'rich guy supporter who quipped about contraception 'in his day': Aspirin between the knees.  The conservative wealthy as so far removed from life and challenges of everyday life, they fall to have connection to sensitivity (and basic common sense). They do not need common sense from an Emotional Intelligence (EQ)  perspective as they have no need to foster productive relationships with everyday people.

Steve Who? Fox What? war on women? Stimulus? = Fantasy Land

A P/R spokesperson and a network authorized to misinform!
As a matter or practice I rarely miss a morning of Media Matters headline stories.   There are few Internet and communication related monitoring forces (entities) in America.  I not only find frequent reports on the insane and inane ranting of the likes of Rush Limbaugh and Michelle Maulkin, the site allows quick access to all things FOX News.

Fox News should be monitored on a daily basis for reasons actually decided  and adjudicated as legal by our Court Systems. In 2010, published a piece on an Appeals Court Decision which for legal purposes allows networks to "in effect lie about news stories".  Let's take a ride back in time for a legal backdrop of why it is so easy for Fox News to distort and lie about news stores. In fact, the Florida case has set a foundation for the Fox News business model, which millions subscribe to and follow on a daily basis.

Fox News gets okay to misinform public, court ruling
