I can’t begin to truly convey my disdain for Fox News. Not just because I disagree with nearly everything they support, but because the channel is pure trash.

To actually call it “news” is laughable, and their tagline “Fair and Balanced” is an even bigger joke.
Now I’m not saying other stations don’t have bias, MSNBC is obviously geared more towards liberals. But there’s a massive difference between what Fox News does and what MSNBC does.

I’ll be honest, I don’t really watch mainstream news. I tend to use the internet to research what’s going on rather than have some pundit who relies on ratings telling me what’s supposedly happening. The only channel I do watch regularly is Fox News, and that’s because I’ve developed a great trick for finding out truth in news. What I do is take whatever Fox News is currently pushing, research it myself, and in that research I find the truth—which is rarely what I heard from their broadcasts.

But the main difference between MSNBC and Fox News isn’t their bias—like I said, they’re both biased. The difference is where MSNBC panders news towards liberals, Fox News will simply make stuff up to create a story. Not that MSNBC hasn’t pushed this line before as well, but this is almost a weekly occurrence on Fox.

A few studies have been done looking at the news channel people watch most, and the amount of factual information these individuals actually knew. In these studies Fox News viewers are almost always deemed the “most misinformed” of the respondents polled. Not only are they the most misinformed viewers, they were even more misinformed than those who responded that they don’t watch any news at all.

Basically, if you don’t watch any news at all, you’re more likely to correctly answer simple factual questions about our government and events going on in our nation than if you watched Fox News.

So, what does that mean? It’s simple.
It shows Fox News distorts the truth so often that watching, and trusting, their “news” actually makes people less informed than if they watched nothing at all.

Now I could give you seemingly countless examples of Fox News pulling stories out of thin air, but I’m just going to use two from last year’s Presidential race to prove my point.

Anyone remember the “You didn’t build that” line by President Obama last summer that sent Republicans into a frenzy? You should, they built their entire Presidential convention around it.
Conservative media outlets like Fox News jumped all over this line by the President. They pushed it as the “radical socialist Obama dismissing the hard work of the American business owner.”

Which sounds awful, except for the fact that they took the line completely out of context. What he was actually talking about was that working together, Americans have achieved great things. That nobody got anywhere on their own, they had help. Be it the teacher who influenced them, the parents who raised them or the roads they use to get supplies into their business—nobody gets where they are without help from others.
