How come Fox News is never held accountable for their lies?

Filed under: Bees |

Question by : How come Fox News is never held accountable for their lies?
When their Lies never come to life, how come nobody ever says anything? Like all of Glenn Becks’ bogus Chalk board conspiracy theories? Like Fox News Promotion of the birther issues? Like Fox News accusing the President of Racism? Like Fox News accusing Obama of Indoctrination children? Like Fox News accusing the President of prolonging the Recession? Like Fox News accusing the President of intentionally raising gas prices? Like Fox News lying and saying he’s quadrupled the National debt? Like Fox News Accusing of being responsible for the the Bush Deficit 1.2 Trillion dollars and the Bush Bank bail outs 700 Billion , labeling it as Obama’s spending? Like Fox news accusing Democrats of Rigging elections in Wisconsin? This network can say whatever it wants to, promote anything nasty about Obama, and when it turns out to be wrong. They never feel the need to correct the record. Why is this?

  1. Amazing isn’t it? We’d have a much better country if our media would be held liable for the accuracy of their content.

  3. There is no laws saying they cannot lie.

  4. Because they’re owned and operated by the GOP.

  8. Wow. If you did your homework, you would find all those things to be the truth. Not even a good try.

  9. Because Fox News is not a real news source. Kinda like the Daily Show, they are there for the ratings. If people watch their opinions on the Obama Administration, then they will continue to produce it. Very similar to that of MSNBC and that of CNN.

    These so called news programs are just entertainment for specific viewing audience. Dont let it get to you. People who watch FoxNews would agree with their stance even if Fox didnt exist.

  10. Most of the things you mentioned are true, and some of the things are things you just made up.

    February 27, 2014 at 4:29 pm

  11. Because they aren’t a legitimate news agency. They are to news what the National Enquirer is to newspapers.

  12. Because it was deemed to be not illegal to make up or alter stories.

  13. for the same reason all the liberal news networks( ,cbs,nbc,tnn,cnn,npr,etc.etc.etc
    ) are not held accountable for all the lies , propaganda,& liberal hate that they spew out .

    February 27, 2014 at 5:32 pm

  14. becuz conservatives are allowed to lie, liberal are not

  15. FOX FAKE “News” is just the propaganda arm of the republican party – and all those guys are crooked as dogs’ hind legs – and pretty pleased with themselves too.

    February 27, 2014 at 6:29 pm

  16. They are very careful to “entertainment”. Their pundits are “entertainers”, they are not reporters or journalists. That is how a lot of them get away with their lies.

    As long as people watch, they can do whatever they want. As long as Rupert is making money off of the American public with hate mongering, it will continue.

    The real question, can anyone with any intelligence actually believe they are being informed by FOX?

  17. Theories are not lies, they are theories. A lot of people believe that Obama is not a citizen, and so they were just doing what all of the stations should have done, and that’s report on the news, the rest just ignored the issue, just because it’s not true doesn’t mean it’s not news. I believe that anyone who brings up the race card to defend themselves, is RACIST. I haven’t heard of the indoctrination of children, so can’t answer that. Hasn’t he prolonged the recession? You can’t continue to print money and get loans and not have some consequences. Has the president done anything to lower gas prices??? Like open domestic oil wells? Excuse me??? The debt has increased by HUGE amounts, under Obama’s tenure, I’m not saying Bush didn’t participate in that, but really, do you pay attention to the national debt issues? I didn’t hear about rigging of elections.

    Just so you know, I don’t watch Fox news, I also don’t watch the horribly biased MSNBC or CNN or the main stream media, because they ALL slant the news they want you to see it. CBS hasn’t apologized for making up stories about Sarah Palin either…so until the other stations see fit to say we’re sorry, we were wrong every time why should Fox?

  18. So you want to hold FOX accountable and let MSNBC off the hook? Let me guess, everything they say is gospel! Anyone who has been lied about has every right to bring a libel/slander suit against the network and any of it’s employees. Have any suits been brought? Let me guess, the GOP controls the court system too right? Guess I’m voting for the right party then.

    February 27, 2014 at 7:38 pm

  19. And you know all of this because?? You need to stop watching MSNBC and watch Fox and you will know that none of what you just said is true…

    February 27, 2014 at 7:57 pm

  20. And will you hold MSNBC and CNN to the same standards? Far as I can see Fox didn’t lie about any of those things. None of it has been proven to be wrong.

  21. Yup, mix bee, the enquirer is why John Edwards is now totally exposed.

    1. Glen Beck’s show is an opinion show. You could write “the sky is purple” and it is nothing for which an accounting is required.
    2. Birther issues? How about transparency with the remainder of his documentation?
    3. Racism? I cannot claim 24/7/365 recall of fox, but I don’t think he has been called racist. Proof required.
    4. Indoctrination of children? No, no need for Obama to do that, he has teachers for that.
    5. Prolonging the recession? Yup, that is a legitimite claim. If you cannot understand a failed stimulus bill (designed not to work) and a two year muddle over tax rates preventing investment, you cannot comprehend the truth behind that one.
    6. Intentionally raising gas prices? Of course not. Doing nothing to lower them? You can answer that one however you like.
    7. Quadrupled the debt? No. Simple math. He has merely nearly doubled the overall debt. He may have quadrupled the annual deficit. Clarify.
    8. Monspotgribblefritz. Just checking if you are reading.
    9. Obama clearly continued the misguided Bush policies regarding TARP and bailouts. Sad. He could have done far better.
    10. Rigging elections in WI? No knowledge on that one, but a pretty serious accusation.

    ANY NETWORK (or BLOG) or (YA-hoo) can say whatever they want (until the first amendment is repealed), and it may or may not be wrong or incorrect.

    The MSM (mainstream media) has very rarely felt the need to correct their incorrect biased reporting or their errors or their biased reporting of portions of events / reports / facts.

    Life — get one.

  22. What is the name of the guy from MSNBC that called Laura Ingram a slut,not once but twice on his radio show.Have not heard any lies or dirty name calling of the state run media people from Fox.

    February 27, 2014 at 8:32 pm

  23. Oh … like :
    my grandfather was a sheep herder.
    my father was flown over by the Kennedy’s
    my uncle freed the Polish
    I was the result of a Selma march
    My mother raised me with food stamps
    I never understood why grammie hated blacks
    My grades were impeccable
    But because they were so good I do not want to embarass anyone that did not do as well.
    I never had anything published in the Harvard School, Columbia, or even a picture in any yearbook.
    Now you talk to me about acountality.
    Fox is a news station that is fed stories.
    Our Prez. is a story that feeds news stations
