A new analysis by PunditFact found that of every statement made by a Fox News host or guest, over half of them were flat-out false. What’s more, only a measly 8% could be considered completely “true.”
In other words, a fancy review of hundreds of hours of video confirmed what many who watch Fox News with any regularity already know: Fox News lies. A lot. Like all the time.
Which isn’t to say that exposing Fox News’ irresponsible journalism isn’t an admirable goal. Despite its blatant spin doctoring, Fox still captivates a large portion of the news watching audience. On a near nightly basis, Fox News programs like “The O’Reilly Factor” and “The Kelly File” crush the competition. Given what we know about how poorly Fox informs its viewers, that paints a pretty grim picture for the millions who consume it without question.
As you can see, Fox manages to capture an impressive range between “Mostly False” all the way to “Pants on Fire” while at the same time just 40 percent could be said to be even somewhat true.
Some might argue that all news networks are pretty terrible and with the seemingly endless drivel that comes out of a 24-hour channel it’s a valid point. Luckily, PunditFact looked at a few other major stations as well and while they aren’t bastions of veracity, they at least look like they’re trying.
I THOUGHT THIS WAS KIDDING SOGMLASG

If you your on mobile you can just hold the reblog button down
No sympathy for rapists, no sympathy for abusers, no sympathy for those who side with them. No excuses for their behavior, no justifications, no exceptions.
It’s really kind of impossible to trust men when you’ve seen, as a child, as a trans girl, the rabid fury that enters their eyes when they see you, perceive your movements and your speech, even before you know what you are.
When they detect those aspects of you that you don’t even understand.
And the abuse and violence, often sexual in nature, that follows.
And all you can think is, why. Why me. Because you don’t even know. But they do. Good lord do they.
Men are fucking terrifying.
if a trigger seems ‘ridiculous’ to you, that is because you’re not triggered by it. you can be triggered by anything it’s not that fucking hard
I like the idea that mermaids lure men to their deaths but fall in love with women and help them become mermaids and all mermaids are like beautiful sea lesbians
Who wouldn’t like that idea?
It never has.
This is a concept most of tumblr can’t wrap their head around.
I would like a statistic on how many people received hate for believing that hate wont end hate
hating your oppressor is a VALID response to being oppressed. stop silencing the experiences and voices of marginalized people.
