Fox News Lies? Prove it.... Make $1000

“Faux News.” “Liars.” “Not really a news organization.” “A right-wing propaganda machine.”
The Leftists have a lot of descriptions for the country’s increasingly dominant cable news channel. They claim that Fox fabricates news stories.
I want them to prove it. And I’ve got a 1-ounce Kruggerand from my Y2K bunker* (today’s spot price: $1,040) waiting for the first ‘progressive’ who can provide me with a documented lie repeated by Fox News reporters.
There are just four simple rules:

  • Fox NEWS doesn't lie. Make mistakes? Sure. There isn't a news organization that doesn't make 'em. NOT ONE. But the NEWS operation is one of the most solid in the country. I know and respect quite a few of the folks there.

    And that's coming from a liberal.

    Fox TALKS? That's another kettle o'fish...though I do like Chris Wallace's program and Stossel is a solid addition.

  • There are just four simple rules:
    • Typos don’t qualify (“ooh, the news ticker used a ‘D’ after his name, not an ‘R’!”).
    • The lie must have been repeated by at least two national Fox News reporters and left uncorrected.
    • The transcripts and/or video clips must be available on the Fox News website for verification.
    • The story, refuting the Fox News lie, must have been correctly reported by news reporters from CNN and MSNBC at around the same time (with links and/or transcripts from their sites).
    Just one lie! That’s all I’m asking for. This should be easiest $1,000 you’ve ever made, libs.
    And given the devaluation of our currency by President Training Wheels, the Kruggerand could be worth $1,500 next week.

  • Interesting. The rule might be that "typos" don't qualify but I find it interesting that FOX has repeatedly put a D next to a Reps name when scandal breaks but have never heard of them putting an R next to a Dems name.


    Just sayin.

  • Friday it was corrected each time. Typos are typos. Just ask MSNBC. Or maybe just ask Jesse Jackson. :o)

  • I am excited to see Stossel over there, too. And I do like Chris Wallace as well. He is my favorite "commentator" at FOX.
