Quote of the Day: There’s nothing “straight” about Fox News

How Fox News actually sees their logo

Fox News often states that it has two halves of programming: its opinion/commentary shows (Beck, Hannity, O’Reilly, etc.) and “straight news” for the rest. Of course, anyone who actually watches its supposedly non-partisan reporting – and has a grounding in fact and reality – can tell you how its supposedly “straight” news is anything but. From a Media Matters article about how Faux lied about federal agencies supposedly boycotting Arizona (when it’s confirmed by the agencies themselves that they aren’t), commenter Bad News left this little retort in the comments (I took the liberty of making a few small edits):

“Straight news”? Fox News is so crooked that if they died, you would need to screw them into the ground.

Why wait?
