Fox News is known for its long and rich history of constant lies, one of their biggest and most recent whoppers being the election lies scandal. And they get away with it because they know their MAGA cult viewers just don't care. — Read the rest
Fox News' effort to get Dominion's $1.6bn defamation case against it tossed out was itself ended today by Delaware Superior Court Judge Eric Davis. The lawsuit will now go to trial–which looks like a dangerous one for Fox News, given the evidence already revealed in court showing that its presenters knew they were promoting lies about the company's voting machines. — Read the rest
After news broke that a Manhattan grand jury indicted Donald Trump, Fox News flew into a theatrical tailspin to keep their angry viewers entertained. The mock outrage, denialism, Democrat-shaming, repetitive use of the word "Rubicon," and even puddling "tears" (that only a behind-the-scenes eyedropper could have produced) was spectacular — at least when condensed into 54 seconds, as seen in the video below, created and posted by Kat Abu. — Read the rest

In one instance, Scott emailed Meade Cooper, executive vice president of prime time programming, and expressed frustration after correspondent Eric Shawn appeared on Martha MacCallum's show and fact-checked Trump and a Sean Hannity guest.
Fox "News" played stupid again, with one of its reporters spotting a "common pattern" she noticed after today's deadly school shooting at a Nashville elementary school that left seven people dead. No, the common pattern wasn't that every killer happened to be toting a deadly weapon. — Read the rest
Fox News producer Abby Grossberg filed two lawsuits Monday which allege the network "coerced" her into providing misleading testimony in Dominion Systems' $1.6bn defamation case against it. Dominion made the voting machines that Fox News pundits knowingly lied about on their shows; Grossberg says she knowingly lied to the court about the lies. — Read the rest
Court records reveal that the smart people at Fox News hate Donald Trump but pretend to like him because it's baked into the business plan. The dumb people there, like Brian Kilmeade, genuinely like Trump, and are thrilled by the fact that he hasn't invited Nazis to sup with him at Mar-a-Lago since, November 29, 2022. — Read the rest
Meet Minnesota artist Marlene Bourne. Bourne thinks she may be a ghost and finds messages hidden in movies, song lyrics, and overheard conversations.

In this video Fox news hosts make a string of personal attacks focused on Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg, and he offers a response straight out of the handbook. According to Fox Mayor Pete is purportedly a diminutive, evil, "flamboyant" man with very bad timing. — Read the rest
"Joe Biden Dementia Cover-Up Exposed!" screams this week's cover.
It's as if they've taken an old story about Donald Trump and merely changed the names, claiming that the president displays "increasingly bewildered behavior, delusional recollections, frequent disorientation and outright distortion of facts – which are all symptoms of cognitive decline".
As no one was finding legitimate signs of election fraud, Fox News, not known for accuracy or legitimacy, took the word of a "time traveler" who sees what others can not see and hears what others can not hear. This highly credible source is unlikely to help their case in the lawsuit by Dominion Systems. — Read the rest
Listening to Fox News' Emily Compagno demand the US build a wall to run the length of its border with Canada reminded me of something. I knew I had seen this movie, and not only was it better the first time but John Candy was fantastic in "Canadian Bacon." — Read the rest
The most recent issue of The Joker: The Man Who Stopped Laughing features a Silver Age-parody backup story in which the Joker, cursed by magic-wielding superhero Zatana, grows a clone of himself in his own stomach. After the Joker literally vomits up his own mini-Joker, the glowing-skull-faced Doctor Phosphorous declares "Guess you weren't pregnant after all!" — Read the rest
It gets harder and harder for me to understand how people even manage to get outraged at what FOX News hosts say. Recently conservatives hated American Girl dolls, now the candy that melts in your mouth but not in your hands is evil. — Read the rest

Every journalists loves to assert their objectivity, but at the end of the day, journalists still make decisions about what they do or do not cover, and why. — Read the rest

Not quite sure what's going on at Fox News in this clip, but perhaps someone walked too close to the coffee shop. They are laughing while discussing the plight of their neighborhood. Weird! Does their argument seem to be that the overwhelming popularity of weed in New York means it shouldn't be legal elsewhere? — Read the rest
