Does Fox begin every hour with 'Once upon a time'?


Fox News Analyst Claims ‘London is 85% Gay’



Quote:
An expert appeared on Fox News last night and claimed that 85 percent of Londoners are homosexual.

During a segment about the future of gay marriage around the world, Greg Bolton -- the channel’s senior European social policy analyst -- told a stunned panel that rates of homosexuality are rising exponentially across Europe and show no sign of stopping.

“Gays will be a majority in Europe by 2027,” he declared to host Sean Hannity. “In some major cities like Paris, Berlin and Dublin they already outnumber straight people. In fact, according to one estimate, homosexuals made up 85 percent of London’s population in 2014 and that figure will rise to above 90 percent by 2020.

“It’s truly scary to think what this might mean for the future of the continent's demographics. The baby boomers are retiring. How are they going to replace all those workers? Where are all the babies going to come from if everybody’s gay?”

Bolton’s statements bear striking resemblance to those of counter-terrorism hobbyist Steve Emerson, who recently told Fox News that the entire city of Birmingham, England, was Muslim and a no-go area for police.

Although Fox News later apologized for those erroneous comments, the incident typifies the fact-free hyperbolic scaremongering that has come to define the network’s brand.

This guy nails it!!

Leonard Pitts Jr.: Fox faux news forces rare apology

Quote:
Tucker Carlson said on Fox that more children die of bathtub drownings than of accidental shootings. They don’t.

Steve Doocy said on Fox that NASA scientists faked data to make the case for global warming. They didn’t.

Rudy Giuliani said on Fox that President Obama has issued propaganda asking everybody to “hate the police.” He hasn’t.

John Stossel said on Fox that there is “no good data” proving secondhand cigarette smoke kills non-smokers. There is.

So maybe you can see why serious people — a category excluding those who rely upon it for news and information — do not take Fox, well...seriously, why they dub it Pox News and Fakes News, to name two of the printable variations. Fox is, after all, the network of death panels, terrorist fist jabs, birtherism, anchor babies, victory mosques, wars on Christmas and Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi. It’s not just that it is the chief global distributor of unfact and untruth but that it distributes unfact and untruth with a bluster, an arrogance, a gonad-grabbing swagger, that implicitly and intentionally dares you to believe fact and truth matter.

Many of us have gotten used to this. We don’t even bother to protest Fox being Fox. Might as well protest a sewer for stinking.

But the French and the British, being French and British, see it differently. And that’s what produced the scenario that recently floored many of us.

There was Fox, doing what Fox does, in this case hosting one Steve Emerson, a supposed expert on Islamic extremist terrorism, who spoke about so-called “no go” zones in Europe — i.e., areas of Germany, Sweden, France and Great Britain — where non-Muslims are banned, the government has no control and sharia law is in effect. Naturally, Fox did not question this outrageous assertion — in fact, it repeated it throughout the week — and most of us, long ago benumbed by the network’s serial mendacities, did not challenge Fox.

Then, there erupted from Europe the jarring sound of a continent laughing. British Prime Minister David Cameron called Emerson an “idiot.” A French program in the mold of The Daily Show sent correspondents — in helmets! — to interview people peaceably sipping coffee in the no-go zones. Twitter went medieval on Fox’s backside. And the mayor of Paris threatened to sue.

Last week, Fox did something Fox almost never does. It apologized. Indeed, it apologized profusely, multiple times, on air.

The most important takeaway here is not the admittedly startling news that Fox, contrary to all indications, is capable of shame. Rather, it is what the European response tells us about ourselves and our waning capacity for moral indignation with this sort of garbage.

It’s amazing, the things you can get used to, that can come to seem normal. In America, it has come to seem normal that a major news organization functions as the propaganda arm of an extremist political ideology, that it spews a constant stream of racism, sexism, homophobia, Islamophobia, paranoia and manufactured outrage, and that it does so with brazen disregard for what is factual, what is right, what is fair, what is balanced — virtues that are supposed to be the sine qua non of anything calling itself a newsroom.

If you live with aberrance long enough, you can forget it’s aberrance. You can forget that facts matter, that logic is important, that science is critical, that he who speaks claptrap loudly still speaks claptrap — and that claptrap has no place in reasoned and informed debate. Sometimes, it takes someone from outside to hold up a mirror and allow you to see more clearly what you have grown accustomed to.

This is what the French and the British did for America last week.

For that, Fox owed them an apology. But serious people owe them thanks.

Only the double digit IQ audiences in the red state regressive provinces fail to recognize Fox News as nothing more than a conservative entertainment network.

In other words, the same people who don't know wrestling is fake.

Fox News had to apologize for their NO GO ZONES in London which are totally fabricated. One day after Fox News apologized for their shoddy reporting Bobby Jindal didn't get the message.... too comical.

Jindal, other than letting go of fairy tales, needs to worry about his own state and in particular, New Orleans.

Quote:
If it were a country, New Orleans (with a rate 62.1 gun murders per 100,000 people) would rank second in the world.
Now THAT'S a no go area.

Fox knows the net effect of such apologies is zero insofar as the rubes will continue to believe in the existence of the "no go" zones and to parrot the story on message boards everywhere.

Maybe we should look to NBC for the truth when broadcasting the news.

Brian Williams admits that his story of coming under fire while in Iraq was false

Williams said he was not aboard a helicopter that was hit by enemy fire and forced down — a story he retold as recently as last week during a televised tribute to a retired soldier during a New York Rangers hockey game.

New Orleans has had Democrats for mayors since 1870.

NBC News anchor Brian Williams told actor Alec Baldwin in March 2013 that he was afraid he was going to die when a Chinook helicopter he was riding in during the Iraq War was hit by a rocket-propelled grenade.

So you're defending using pinko sources by asserting I use "brown shirt" sources.

Brown shirts like the NY Times? CNN?

I use mainstream sources, not political fetishist sites.

And then there's Lying Williams at NBC.

If it's on TV, it's not real.

That barely made a ripple.

If Limbaugh had lied like that we wouldn't hear the end of it.

Because I'm the one that makes a large chunk of my posts fixating on F0X N00Z...

Apparently you need some education on the basics of journalistic integrity:
Research in journalism ethics typically focuses on the actions, intent and duty of practitioners rather than the expectations of the public at whom messages are directed. When we do devote attention to the public, we find them to be increasingly critical of journalism. Polling data reveals that the public widely believes the press to be inaccurate, one-sided and lacking independence (Pew Research Center, 2011). Interestingly, these criticisms represent precisely the inverse of the ideals espoused by journalistic codes of ethics. For example, the Associated Press Media Editors (1994) Statement of Ethical Principles affirms that “The good newspaper is fair, accurate, honest, responsible, independent and decent” while remaining impartial and dispassionate. Similar statements advocating independence, accuracy and impartiality can be found in the American Society of News Editors (1975) Statement of Principles, while the Society of Professional Journalists (1996) Code of Ethics emphasizes accuracy, fairness and independence.
A grown adult should not have to be told that biased media is advocacy media which means it's not a reliable source of facts.

So yes, when a publication is in the tank for a certain political view - be it right OR left - that source is not objective, professional journalism BY DEFAULT.

You can't cheer lead for a certain political party and somehow magically post facts.

You are out of your alleged mind.

SO please continue making these angry little posts with short insults.

And note that according to the same page I just quoted,
An increase in “liberal bias” was noted in coverage of Senate races as well. Looking at nine Senate races in the 2004 election, Fico, Freedman, & Love (2006) found the coverage to be generally even-handed. To the extent that bias was discovered, it could be attributed to structural (bias in individual stories that favors one side in a conflict) rather than partisan (aggregate news coverage that systematically favors the liberal or conservative side in a political conflict) effects. However, a follow-up study of the 2006 Senate races arrived at a different conclusion. The researchers found that coverage of 11 U. S. Senate races favored Democratic and liberal candidates over Republicans (Fico & Freedman, 2008). Moreover, the researchers noted that, unlike two years earlier, the imbalance appeared more the result of partisan rather than structural biases. They offered two possible explanations for the apparent increase in partisan bias between 2004 and 2006:



First, 2004 was a presidential election year, and news organizations may have been more aware of the need to balance coverage. A second explanation is that journalists studied in 2006 were simply biased toward liberal candidates and shaped their coverage accordingly (p. 509).
Learn the difference between professional journalism and advocacy journalism. Advocacy journalism is biased and thus cannot be relied upon for anything other than telling you what to think.

But apparently this is OK as long as they're with your camp.

And I'm sorry if you're ignorant of The Nation's long history of associations with Socialists and Communists.

That magazine was the first to publish the Cloward-Piven strategy. Richard Cloward was a revolutionary Socialist and worked hand-in-hand with his radical Leftist wife Frances Fox Piven.

The Nation has been a haven of all shades of the Left for decades. Why deny it with these childish personal insults that are the definition of ad hominem, rather than giving points of evidence that what I said was wrong - other than that you cannot.

So you cover it with one-liners and chortling, like a common uneducated buffoon.

Now feel free to give us more of your intellectually superior dismissive one-liner insult retorts.

You're ignorant of the fact that all of your "arguments" are nothing more than ad hominem and begging the question.

You're so convinced of the validity of your absolutist views re: socialism that you believe the mere invocation of the name automatically refutes arguments and/or disconfirms facts.
