The only time Fox had to make a retraction was when the video of a black NAACP woman's comments were taken out of context. Fox wasn't the only network who ran it and Obama believed it so much, he fired her.
O'Reilly showed remorse and blamed himself and his research team for not doing their job thoroughly that one time.
Dan Rather was fired for making up lies about Bush.
NBC caught/apologized for editing Zimmerman's dispatch call.
NBC sued for same.
MSNBC caught/apologized editing Biden's comments about gun control.
MSNBC caught lying about a Romney ad.
ABC caught lying about gun control.
NBC caught editing Romney's comments.
Nevermind the New York Times who've been discredited so many times I lost count.
All of them remain absolutely silent when the people need to know what's going on with possible abuses of power in a liberal administration. If they don't have anything on conservatives, they just make it up.
So, no, I wouldn't trust getting my news from any other source.
It's why O'Reilly and Fox News was rated the #1 trusted news source by Suffolk University in Boston - a liberal university.
And Dan Rather was fired.
Dan Rather did not make up lies about Bush.

HEY STUPID! Dr. George Tiller wasn't "caught" he was assassinated by Scott Roeder a mentally imbalanced right wing extremist. Okay, mentally imbalanced right wing extremist is probably redundant and you probably think that his actions were perfectly fine.
Dr. Tiller operated within the confines of the law. Kermit Gosnell did not and was rightfully convicted.
In your comparison between these two you show as you do on a daily basis that you're abysmally ignorant.
The more idiots like you try to restrict women's rights to terminate a pregnancy the more shady operators like Gosnell will come out of the woodwork.
Tiller routinely committed infanticide and calling him "Dr." is an insult to the medical profession.

He should have been prosecuted and jailed instead of murdered.

"Considering that human activity released some 30 Gt CO2 into the atmosphere last year, human emissions are likely 100 (or more) times as large as volcanic emissions. Those who make claims about the Mt. Pinatubo explosion emitting more CO2 than all of human activity for all time, should be made aware that the estimated CO2 emissions from Mt. Pinatubo are 0.05 Gt CO2, about the amount released by human activity in half a day, not our entire history. In fact, in less than 3 days we outstrip the volcanic emissions for an entire year:"

(This is for the benefit of my unhappy little judge-it...)

Obama's doomsday speeches/temper tantrums about the sequester didn't work, so now he's pouting.

He closed the WH doors, cancelled traditional military events and is squeezing public servants.

But somehow he had plenty of money to host galas at the WH, go on lavish trips and play golf with Tiger Woods.

The truth hurts sometimes. But it's for your own good.

Pretty sure that video was seen all over the television on many networks.

Here you pick at this one little scab on Fox News and completely ignore the present gaping open wounds on the liberal media as well as past gaping open wounds.

But again...

Fox News Uses Edited Obama Clip to Attack the President for Media Bias

Fox and Friends attempted to counter Obamaís point that Fox News and Rush Limbaugh punish Republicans for bipartisanship by playing clips of Obama criticizing Fox and having contributor Peter Johnson Jr. label the presidentís criticisms silly and bizarre. However, Fox News confirmed the accuracy of the presidentís criticism by selectively editing video of Obama to create a deceptive, misleading, and very partisan impression.

Here is the Fox and Friends video:....

The president was discussing the danger that comes when Americans only get their information from partisan sources. The president was arguing against partisan media on both the left and the right. Since the entire Fox News business model is based on convincing their audience that all other media sources are liberally biased liars, they are going to view any objective call for less partisanship as a threat to their survival.

By editing an Obama clip to make their argument, Fox News confirmed the accuracy of the presidentís recent comments about the right wing mediaís desire to keep the political environment hyper partisan. Fox doesnít seem to understand that editing clips of the president to fit their partisan objectives isnít the best way to argue that that they are being unfairly attacked by a partisan president.

The Fox News response to Obamaís comments proved that are a big part of the problem, and the solution is to turn off Fox.

Fox has a strict policy never to retract a thing or apologize for anything they publish; right or wrong; just lie more to cover up the previous lies.
They did overturn the individual mandate. It is only constitutional as a tax, BOB!!!

See, I knew it. The Flacktard likes to remain ignorant.

How about you show me a report that says how much greenhouse gas is released during a major volcano eruption.

Here is another source:

"While sulfur dioxide released in contemporary volcanic eruptions has occasionally caused detectable global cooling of the lower atmosphere, the carbon dioxide released in contemporary volcanic eruptions has never caused detectable global warming of the atmosphere. This is probably because the amounts of carbon dioxide released in contemporary volcanism have not been of sufficient magnitude to produce detectable global warming. For example, all studies to date of global volcanic carbon dioxide emissions indicate that present-day subaerial and submarine volcanoes release less than a percent of the carbon dioxide released currently by human activities."

But hey, compared to a expert like you, what does the USGS know.

Right??
