    File this one under "Fox News truly has no shame."

    The latest employment report was expected to put the number of new jobs in the U.S. in the past month at about 150,000. It actually showed that the economy added 528,000 jobs.

    Fox News:

    Faux news knows what their fans love. It is a heavy heaping of bullshit. @Federal Farmer 's real name must be mikey because he likes it.

    No, actually, the gimmick with Mikey is he doesn't like anything, but he likes the Life cereal, so it's a shock surprise how good Life is.
    FF takes right to Fox bullshit like a fly to shit.
    And he'll eat all the other bullshit brands too.

    I don’t watch Fox News. Fantasy rep that all you want, it doesn’t make it any more true.

    No, you just watch YouTubers who watch Fox News and chop it up and premasticate it for you.

    Fuck man! You just posted a clip of a Fox News clip this morning! :lol:

    This was your only response to me posting the actual, from the horses mouth, on AAA’s website data about gas prices:


    Well not your only response. You then whined about me posting hard data instead of responding to you and Peter Doucey’s precious widdle fee-fees on the subject and threatened to ignore me. :lol:

    Watching a short clip of Peter Doocey which wasn't Fox News is not the same as actively watching Fox News programing.

    You don't watch faux news, but you only repeat their lies and talking points along with posting videos from them. You hate trump, but defend him and slurp his ass every time you can. You are not a republican, but yet you constantly love large fascist government over libertarian philosophy.

    You expect us all to believe your lies over our own eyes which shows you are a faux news love because you project your own denial of what you see with your own eyes over what faux tells you onto the rest of us. We see what you post and do around here so we know you are a liar.

    At least make a sock if you are going to pretend not to be a faux news junkie.

    Boy, that's a lame defense.

    That's like if I said I hated MSNBC and anything to do with it, and then was like "whoops, how did all this Rachel Maddow get in here?".
    Biased media is pretty easy to dance around.
    I mean, it requires a little concentration, but not fucking Jedi levels.

    Or you could simply take the source into account and look for other source's reporting on the story and compare the various versions instead of counting on any one source to be "fair and balanced".

    Anyway, this is a classic leftist tactic. Instead of actually addressing what’s being said in the clip people just go on attack mode. They attack the source because they can’t refute what’s being said.

    Wow, it's like FF lives in a universe where you never said this.
    Hm, do you suppose your counterpart in FF-world is mute, or just wasn't born?

    Rick Scott claiming he is opposed to the IRA because ‘it cuts Medicare’ (I remember when Rs believed cost savings were a good thing) when his Senate plan makes Medicare discretionary is… so on brand.

    He also listens to his not-fascist relatives regurgitate whatever they heard on Fox News earlier that day and accepts whatever they say without question. :async:

    Didn't I scroll by some bullshit where @Federal Farmer was trying to use faux news as a source anbd he was complaining they were reliable?

    Someone should check on him because he was pretty high up on that mountain of shit and he doesn't need any more head trauma.

    I'm sure their excuse will be "we didn't make that image, we just shared it." :dayton:

    News outfits have gotten fooled by fake images before, but Fox hasn't deserved the benefit of the doubt for at least a couple of decades.

    I swear we had a megathread like this a few years ago. But maybe it was just specific to Fox News.
