For liberals, it’s not exactly “breaking news” to find out that Fox News is mostly comprised of misinformation or flat-out lies. Anyone with even a shred of common sense can watch just a handful of their featured shows and see that the entire channel is nothing more than a propaganda mechanism for the Republican party. Punditfact, a branch of Politifact, has put together profiles for CNN, MSNBC and Fox News detailing just how honest each of these networks are.
Pundifact found Fox News to have only told the truth 18 percent (15 of 83) of the time for the statements they checked. And even of that 18 percent, only 8 percent of what they said was completely “True.” The other 10 percent was rated as “Mostly True.” A staggering 60 percent (50 of 83) comments were found to be either “Mostly False,” “False,” or “Pants on Fire.” The other 22 percent were rated “Half True.”
Essentially well over half of what Punditfact has fact-checked on Fox News has been a lie and only 18 percent has been deemed factual. To compare, CNN was found to have been honest about 60 percent of the time, while only having 18 percent of their comments found to be false. As for MSNBC, they were found to have been honest about 31 percent of the time, while 48 percent of the comments they had fact-checked were deemed untrue.
There is a good deal of off the lame stream information that clearly indicates the vast majority of lame stream reporting from the middle east consists mainly of bald faced lies. Little wonder that Williams did not hesitate to try to enhance his personal rep by pulling a Bush league Billary. He simply could no longer tell truth from fiction.
I would suggest that either party would love to have him running under their banner for a seat in Congress. He has self certified that he is fully qualified.

How about that? Someone actually examined the truthfulness of Fox vs MSNBC:
I'm not debating whether a "right" network is more or less truthful than a "left" network. The thread title specifically notes MSM. Period. None of the bastards are trustworthy.
However, now that you bring it up, what about errors of omission? What if you blatantly do not report the news, period? You obviously haven't told a lie but neither have you exposed the truth. Among dozens, Benghazi.
How does your little survey account for that? "Oh, they never mentioned it so it wasn't a lie. We're obviously better than them." Is that it?
What a crock. For a guy with a PhD, CM, your debating skills, your ability to present a cogent argument & defend it with empirical evidence, really suck.
And, as SINC noted, do you really think that a record of 31% or 60% accuracy in the news is noteworthy? Something to be proud of? Would you consider either number as an acceptable mark on your child's report card? Would you have earned any of your degrees with marks like that?
Have Progressives' standards sunk that low? Edward R. Murrow must be turning over in his grave.
Just a meat eating, mouth-breathing, knuckle-dragging, Harley riding deplorable troglodyte peoplekind, back from a better place...
