Goebbels warming

Always remember that Fox News exists to unbalance any factual discussion in favor of Fox's hard-right, anti-environment, pro-corporatist, pro-wealth politics:

Given the controversy over the veracity of climate change data...

...we should refrain from asserting that the planet has warmed (or cooled) in any given period without IMMEDIATELY pointing out that such theories are based upon data that critics have called into question. It is not our place as journalists to assert such notions as facts, especially as this debate intensifies.

Who said this?
That propaganda is good which leads to success, and that is bad which fails to achieve the desired result. It is not propaganda’s task to be intelligent, its task is to lead to success.

I knew it wouldn’t be long before you would start comparing Fox News to Nazi Germany. The truth is that you leftists can’t stand not having the news media all to yourselves anymore. It’s about time there is a place for thinking Americans to go on the dial when they seek the truth. Dan Rather anyone??

Fox is a propaganda outlet, for which any standard of truth is waaay secondary to effective bullshit.

This is a network that revels in its ability to feed you any stupid bullshit it wants. You lap it up and beg for more. Thinking Americans? You?! You crack me up.
