Question: Did Fox rely on liars, or did they lie to gain a manipulative advantage and twist the far-right narrative?
Answer: It doesn't matter.

Is anyone keeping a running tally of the number of times Fox News has been caught in a lie? I'm sure it's somewhere on Media Matters.
no, you look it up yourself timidares.
whackity shmackity doooooo
The set theory symbol refers to a set having the same cardinal number as the "small" infinite set of integers. The symbol is often pronounced "aleph-null" rather than "aleph-zero," probably because Null is the word for "zero" in Georg Cantor's native language of German. It is sometimes also pronounced "aleph-zero" or "aleph-naught," the latter of which is also spelled "aleph-nought."

I posted this because I was baffled by the fact this is the first time the media so openly criticize Fox news. For anyone living in Canada, Fox has always been utter tabloid crap. I dont know the perception in the states but from around here its ludicrous.
Lots of folks take it pretty seriously around here, my family included.
I've worked with a bunch of wannabe actors and anchors. Only the most very desperate and soulless of them ever end up thinking about joining Fox news.

If my dad is watching the news it's almost always Fox.

You know I watched this video on another site, expecting something significant from it. MSMBC and Fox News are in the business of scaring people and getting them pissed off to keep them watching, so I expected the truth to be elasticized. But mostly what he does is say there's deception and hypocrisy without being clear on what he means. He just keeps repeating it over and over as if believes if he says it enough times it will become true.
I can't blame Wolf Blitzer though, who was probably thinking if this guy was challenged, he's so mad, he'd jump through the monitor and strangle him.
I am not challenging your point but I will say that it is a little incoherent.
He says that Fox News claims they didn't send people out on a trip because they would be used as human shields and propaganda tools, but they actually did send a rookie out to take photos in their stead and are just motivated by laziness. Was that somehow not clear?
I still can't believe how wildly successful that strategy has been: create an out of control misinformation machine known for outright lies that support the Republican party so that whenever something legitimate comes up that supports the "other" side, it can be dismissed as "the left equivalent of Fox news" all in a warped sense of fairness and objectivity.
the gulf between msnbc and fox is enormous
Both networks cherry pick their information, both use logical fallacies to making their points, both networks use mockery toward the party they oppose. Fox News angers their viewers by telling them how Democrats are destroying America and scares their viewers with what might happen if Democrats take control. MSNBC angers their viewers by telling them how Republicans are destroying America and scares their viewers with what might happen if Republicans take control.
A country's population, caught in a friend-or-foe political dichotomy, with fear and anger in their hearts, will refuse to cooperate with each other even when it's in their own best interest. When that happens the only possible path is backwards.
