A new study released shows that only 18% of what's on Fox News is true. It's no wonder Republicans are so filled with misinformation since most of them watch Fox.
What's worse is when more informed people try to explain how they're confused ,they start name calling and get angry that they had been lied to.

The attorneys for Fox, owned by media baron Rupert Murdoch, successfully argued the First Amendment gives broadcasters the right to lie or deliberately distort news reports on the public airwaves. We are pushing for a consumer protection solution that labels news content according to its adherence to ethical journalism standards that have been codified by the Society of Professional Journalists (Ethics: spj.org ).
Fox went to court to lie to the public. They won.
The people that watch it.....lost.

I guess all that Professional Journalism coming out of MSNBC and The REV Al Sharpton mouth is pure 100% truth!!!LOL what I load of shit!!!LOL I wonder WHY if as you state that their News worthy information is 18% true, WHY is it that their the number one rated news show in America for 145 consecutive months???I believe it could be your Liberal News show is AGAIN Lying about that 18%... You should try watching A real News channel instead of Rev Al sharpton and MSNBC Idiots, you just might learn something!! Im sure Rev Al will tell you anything just to keep you LIBTARDS happy, His WHITEY hates blacks usually works with you Litards!! yeah that outta do it!!!

If the President of the United States can lie with every breath, maybe we can cut FOX some slack for telling you democrats the uncomfortable truth every now and then.

Don't you realize that MSNBC would not exist at all if it were not for FOX!
All MSNBC role is - is to counter all the lies coming out of FOX, LIMBAUGH, BECK, HANNITY, ORIELLY & THE REST OF THE RIGHT-WING PROPAGANDA MACHINE.
Heck, somebody has got to inform Americans the truth & also telll people about the lies coming from the right-wing!
Why would you even question that FOX only tells the truth 18% of the time. Any program that has to go to court to get approval to LIE TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE is capable of anything!!!
And, believe me - FOX is not concerned about the good of the American people. They are only puppets to their deep-pocket benefactors like the Koch brothers & many other wealthy people & big corporations.
That's right - FOX is nothing but a bought & paid for RIGHT-WING PROPAGANDA MACHINE...
Oh, Jerry - you keep swearing over & over & over that you are not the least bit racist. If this is true - WHY DID YOU SINGLE OUT AL SHARPTON???
In case you don't know - I am very well read & very well informed about what's going on in this country - and I have watched Politics Nation with Al Sharpton many many times - and not one time have I ever caught him telling a lie.
I only wish I could say the same for FOX, Limbaugh, Beck, Hannity & O'Reilly - for, they only rarely tell the truth...
I think it shoud be a law that in the corner of the tv screen (on every right-wing show) there should be a little sign warning people that THIS IS NOT A REAL NEWS PROGRAM - BUT ONLY A BOUGHT & PAID FOR PROGRAM WHICH PUSHES THE RIGHT-WING AGENDA...
Yes, there should be a warning label for people to not take FOX or any of the other right-wing shows seriously. This warning lable should also say that these shows are for entertainment purposes only...not to be taken seriously...

I don't know why anyone would single out a Twana Brawley, race baiting, trouble making, SOS like So Sharpton...lol
Alumni61, you're a quack...

Don't people realize that when you defend the Republican Party and your not a millionaire , it displays your ignorance.
I just don't understand why poor or middle class people would support a party that shafts them daily. You can fix ignorance but not stupidity.
#9 Jul 22, 2014
Have you ever actually watched Al Sharpton on Politics Nation? If you haven't - who are you to make judgment???
So, you hate race baiting, trouble making people, huh? Well, I guess you just loath Rush Limbaugh, Glen Beck, Sean Hannity & the rest of the clowns who make up the right-wing propaganda machine.
If you want to talk trouble-making - you don't have to look any further than RUSH LIMBAUGH! This big-fat-tub of lard, drug-head, talk show host has caused more division in this country than any other person since our country was founded.
Not only has Limbaugh been caught obtaining illegal drugs - How are we to know - every day as he spews out his hate, venom & fear-mongering - that he's not under the influence of drugs!!!
To spew out all that venom & hate with such passion as he does day in & day out - he would almost have to be drugged up on something!
Yes, that's right - every time you tune in to 'ole Limbaugh - chances are - he's flying higher than a kite! All you have to do is watch clips of Limbaugh spewing out his hate on radio - to see the face of a man under the influence...
Oh, and did I mention Rush Limbaugh also travels to foreign countries so he can meet up with young girls (I'm talking about little bitty girls). Yep,'ole Limbaugh has had several failed marriages - guess he just can't make it with real women...
Compared to Rush Limbaugh - Al Sharpton is as pure & clean & innocent as a new born baby!
#11 Jul 22, 2014
Quote from the Loon called Almuni!!(Compared to Rush Limbaugh - Al Sharpton is as pure & clean & innocent as a new born baby!) Really???
Al Sharptons history of hate is so voluminous and well documented, where does one even begin!!
Sharpton, Maddox and Mason accused the Dutchess County prosecutor, Steven Pagones, of being one of the perpetrators of the alleged abduction and rape...The Tawana Brawley case!!. The three were successfully sued for slander and ordered to pay $345,000 in damages, the jury finding Sharpton liable for making seven defamatory statements about Pagones, Maddox for two and Mason for one. Pagones was white.
In regards to the Crown Height Riot he caused. Sharpton became the de-facto representative for the Cato family. During the funeral he referred to "diamond merchants" considered a code word for Hasidic Jews, for shedding "the blood of innocent babies" leading marchers shouting "No Justice No Peace". A visiting rabbinical student from Australia by the name of Yankel Rosenbaum, 29 years old, was killed during the rioting by a mob shouting "Kill the Jew".
In 1995, Sharpton led a protest in Harlem against the plans of Freddy's Fashion Mart, a Jewish-owned clothing store, to expand into a black neighborhood, displacing a black retailer. Sharpton told the protesters, "We will not stand by and allow them to move this brother so that some white interloper can expand his business." Three months later, an armed protester forcibly entered the store and burned it down, killing himself and seven others..
Caught on an FBI Surveillance Tape Discussing a Cocaine Deal!
These are just A few of Sharptons Highlights from his VAST Depository of Racist banters
Al Shrarpton Should Be FIRED from MSNBC!! All he knows is Anti Semite or Anti White Remarks!! And Alumni IF anyone looks like A newborn child It sure as Hell aint Al!!! That FAT Bastard is A True Raciest through and through!!!
#13 Jul 22, 2014
whats the matter?? The Truth got stuck in your craw ?
Al sharpton and Jessie Jackson have Gotten RICH off of Slandering whites and spewing HATE in the Inner Cities! Most of the Time its at The wrong people or at the wrong ethnic group!! Most of the time it ends up with some Innocent person being sued who had Nothing to do with The infraction or worse Murdered ! AND Sharpton and Jackson Go Laughing all the way to the Bank!!
More Right wing rabble?? you have no clue!!!
#15 Jul 22, 2014
Very few black journalists (MSNBC excluded) out there who will defend either Jackson or Sharpton. They know the facts. They realize both are nothing more than professional race baiters, extortion and racketeering specialists. Only guilt ridden white liberals, hood rat trouble makers and the ignorant leftovers support either.
#16 Jul 22, 2014
It's obvious you know nothing about Al Sharpton; nor have you ever watched his tv show "Politics Nation". If you had, you'd know that Sharpton is not fat at all. He probably weighs about 165 lbs soaking wet.
All the tripe you've written about Al Sharpton is just that - a load of TRIPE, LIES & RACIST SLURS & TRASHING - because YOU ARE THE BIGGIST RACIST ON TOPIX!!!
And, you should be ashamed of yourself...
If Obama were white we wouldn't hear a word out of you - because you'd revert back to being a staunch Democrat again. The only reason you've now become right-wing is because of the color of our president's skin!!!
You prove this with every post you make (even though you're constantly claiming that you are not racist).
Your biggest problem is that you don't have enough sense to even know that you're just an angry old white man who is 100% RACIST...
You are pathetic, Jerry...
#17 Jul 22, 2014
Did you not watch the farcical Twana Brawley trial? You do know Al Sharpton was her attorney? You do realize he rode Miss Brawleys pack of lies all the way to race-baited in chief heaven? You do know he was picked up on FBI wiretaps doing drug business with New York mobsters, don't you?
He's the perfect democrat...lol
You are pathetic, 1961 alumni....

Again, I say; when comparing Al Sharpton to Rush Limbaugh - Al Sharpton STILL comes off being - as pure & clean & innocent as a newborn baby...!!!
Yes, Al Sharpton has been heavily involved in the civil rights of Afro-Americans for years - but his involvment in civil rights is a mere drop in the bucket the damage Rush Limbaugh has done to our whole nation - with even world-wide reprecussions.
Yes, Rush Limbaugh has almost single-handedly divided this country more than any other person or event since the civil war.
Of course, there has always been political radio talk shows - but, none have ever reached the level of hate & fear-mongering as Rush Limbaugh's show. And, because of the success of Limbaugh - hundreds of copy-cat radio & tv shows follow Rush Limbaugh in the hat & fear-mongering...
Yes, he has million & millions of listeners who believe every word he says & have abandoned all common sense to follow his rantings.
These brain-washed robots can neither describe themselves as Democrat or Republican!
No, these people are simply followers of their idol - Rush Limbaugh. Limbaugh tells them what & how to think.
It seems that these people have lost their ability to think for themselves - so, they depend on Limbaugh to do their thinking for them. IT'S A SAD STATE OF AFFAIRS & A BLEMISH ON THE INTEGRITY OF OUR WHOLE COUNTRY.
Limbaugh's influence has even effected he leaders of our country - No Republican politican would even think of doing or saying something that Limbaugh didn't approve of. If they did, they'd be trashed on Limbaugh's talk show the next day.
So, we've reached the point - where our government is at a standstill & in gridlock. We cannot even get any legislation passed any more - all because of the hate & fear-mongering that has proceeded out of the mouth of Rush Limbaugh!!!
After Obama was elected - Rush Limbaugh was the first one to say "he hoped Obama failed as president."
This statment was picked up by Republican House members & Senators & on the day Obama was sworn as president - they met behind closed doors & made a pact to make Obama a one term president. They agreed to never pass any of his bills...
So, as a result we have THE WORST DO-NOTHING CONGRESS IN HISTORY & OUR GOVERNMENT IS IN CONSTANT GRID-LOCK.
This has had dire consequences throughout this country - and even extended world wide...
So sad how much damage one loud mouth racist biggot has done to our country...

Why are all u people jealous of Al Sharpton? Al made something out himself. Jealousy is one of the 7 deadly sins
#20 Jul 22, 2014
You've drifted off into the world of the weird....
#21 Jul 22, 2014
Yes, I certainly have wandered off into the world of wierd...
It is very wierd that grown men would abandon all common sense to follow the ranting of an idiot like Rush Limbaugh.(I don't think many women listen to Rush Limbaugh). If they do - it's because their husbands are clinging on to his every word. Most women are smart enough to see Rush Limbaugh for what he is - a bloated biggoted, racist idiot!!!
If Rush Limbaugh had to depend on women - his radio show would have been canceled when he first began his hate & fear-mongering back in the 80's.
#22 Jul 22, 2014
Al sharpton Better than Limbaugh?? I Laughed so hard I bout peed myself!!!! Sharpton is nothing but A criminal!! Palin and simple. Look up Criminal in Wikipedia and Sharptons face is to the left of it!!!
You wanna talk about Limbaughs drug addiction of pain killers and try to MKake Sharptons Cocaine Abuse the same?? your outta your Mind!! Sharptons has gotten RICH of of Race baiting!
Take A look at his record! TAx Evasion in 88, TAWANA BRAWLY: 1987.CENTRAL PARK JOGGER: In 1989 the jogger, a young white woman, was monstrously raped and nearly beaten to death in Central Park. Sharpton insisteddespite the defendants confessionsthat her black attackers were innocent, modern-day Scottsboro Boys trapped in a fit of racial hysteria. Sharpton charged that the joggers boyfriend did it, and organized protests outside the courthouse, chanting,The boyfriend did it! and denouncing the victim as Whore!
During the Million Man March in Washington, civil rights activist Al Sharpton thundered,O.J. is home, but Mumia Abu Jamal aint home. And we wont stop till all of our people that need a chance in an awkward and unbalanced criminal justice system can come home.
FBI TAPES/COCAINE: In 2002, HBO aired a 19-year-old FBI surveillance of Sharpton with self-described mobster Michael Franzese and an undercover FBI agent posing as a Latin American businessman. The three were discussing promoting boxing matches and musical events. HBOs Real Sports got a hold of a hidden camera video that shows undercover agent Victor Quintana posing as a drug dealer trying to convince Sharpton to play a middleman in a big cocaine buy. FBI TAPES/DONATIONS: After Sharptons name surfaced on wiretaps in an unrelated Philadelphia City Hall corruption case, the FBI launched a probe into Sharptons fund-raising for his failed 2004 presidential run. The FBI secretly videotaped Sharpton on May 9, 2003, pocketing campaign donations from two shady fund-raisers in a NY City hotel room, and then demanding $25,000 more. The two fund-raisers were La-Van Hawkins and the late Ronald White. Hawkins is currently on trial in Philadelphia on corruption charges. White was going to be indicted, but died before charges were brought. A later wiretap recorded Hawkins telling White that they had raised more than $140,000 for Sharpton the previous quarter, but Hawkins was concerned that Sharpton had only reported about $50,000 to the Federal Election Commission, as required by law. Sharpton said the allegations were a politically motivated smokescreen to hide the fact the Justice Department is out to get him. He ripped the probe and the secret videotaping, saying,Can you imagine what would happen if it was a white presidential candidate?....OH therees LOTS LOTS more on Sharton!! He is crooked as an old Tree limb!! All he cares about is what he can get outta of A deal and HOW much MONEY is in it for him!! He gicves A shit about the Poor Blacks he walks on when MONEDY is involved...LOL and YOU Listen to This IDIOT Nightly??? Alumni you are LOST!!!HA HA!!
#23 Jul 22, 2014
Limbaugh actually does great with the women listening audience. It's the Al Sharpton loving dingbat quacks he has trouble attracting.
You've wrongly been predicting his demise for years...lol You can give it up Alumni, he ain't going anywhere.
