Faux News Admits It Finally
« on: June 15, 2017, 10:38:40 AM »
They've officially dropped 'Fair and Balanced' as their slogan.

No shit.

Apparently they're using 'Most watched, most trusted' now, which the former may be true, I don't know, I don't follow news ratings, and the latter is entirely subjective and probably refers to the knuckledraggers who only believe it if they hear it on Faux.

"Lying Bastards" was taken?

I can't believe you just referred to our president as a knuckledragger.

Their slogan should be "Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them."

I have that Franken book, and it's always made me think of FAUX News.

There are many places in the U.S. where the only radio stations available are the Christian station, the country station and FAUX Pas News. and in more than half the U.S. the Tv in the gas station, diner, or truck stop is left on Faux all day... you risk having an arm broken if you dare to change the channel
god is never early, but he is never late either... so true, so true; but I would rather have him show up late than to not show up at all. When was the last time god showed up for anything??? uh never

Changing channels is possible.  I go to a barber shop on weekdays.  The place is deserted.  I demanded the barber change to MSNBC and turn my chair to see it.  He did.  On the other hand, that is only once every 2 months.

I had more effective luck when my Dad was living here.  He wanted Fox News all day.  I made so much fun of it that he agreed to watch CNN if I would shut up.  He never could argue well with me.

Why are you mean to a helpless old man?  While my mom lived with me, it was veterinary show after veterinary show.  They were always doing castrations!
