Fox News thread of fine journalism


#2164

Haha, holy shit that Always Sunny one is amazing.


#2165

Way to go Australia.


#2166

Wooooooo!

Well, we still need our Parliament to actually do something based on the non-binding poll results though…


#2167

Hannity just wants in on the Gohmert crazy chart action:


#2168

That is a really great explanation of the whole thing–it should be required viewing for Congressidiots.

But it does leave the question: WTF is Shep Smith still hanging out at Fox? Do they just pay him so much he can’t leave?


#2169

My theory is he views himself as one of the last bastions of legitimate journalism on a “news” source that a huge audience watches to get their information exclusively. He probably feels obligated to stay for the betterment of the nation.


#2170

That’s been my theory as well. I’m glad there’s at least one reasonable voice over there.


#2171

Heh I remember memes about those alt-right charts last year. When will Fox News rename itself to Frog News?


#2172

A lot of Fox viewers are very angry about Shep’s piece…I bet he’s fired soon. I understand it’s upsetting to get a few facts in your relentless propaganda feed.


#2173

I wonder if Fox News used Microsoft Visio for that chart?

clippy


#2174

No, visio would have done a better job. I think someone at Fox built that using clipart in Word 6.0


#2175

Unlikely, he’s spewed off plenty that doesn’t toe the company line, and is still there.


#2176

I mean seriously, what could they rationally be angry about (yes, it’s a rhetorical question)? He laid out a bunch of info in a factual way. “This is how the process works, here’s the dates of the issues in question”. I mean, Jeff fucking Sessions isn’t appointing a special counsel. Don’t think they think that this administration would be salivating at any chance of indicting Hillary on something?

#2178

Some of the Tweets are pretty ridiculous:

Translation: “Smith’s reporting facts is messing with my favorite conspiracy theory!”


#2179

He literally just recited a bunch of facts. How is that ‘his own spin’?


#2180

“Alternative facts”


#2181

#2182

If I get “Mouth diarrhea coming from my mouth” stuck in my head it’s all your fault.


#2183

You go, Shep!
