The Daily Shows "50 Lies" From Fox News; Politificat Validates





You may have seen The Daily Show six second video of Fox New lies. The six second video did not attract my interest until Politificat took the project and handed it to their researchers. After, reading the Politifact piece, The Daily Show video is a strong indictment of a cable news network some consider real news.

Fox News is an entertainment network no more, no less with a dedicated focus to advancing conservative ideology and GOPism regardless of the proven deleterious affect of the GOP on the nation.
