When it comes to facts Republicans seem to live in a different world from the rest of us. One of the main reasons is that they get their information from non-factual sources, such as the Republican Reichsministry of Propaganda, Faux Noise. Here is one of their most idiotic offerings of 2013.

O'Reilly thinks liberals aren't industrious and hardworking??!!! Can we in the blue states keep all our federal tax money in blue states instead of always bailing out the budget woes of red states then???

Clicking on through to the other side....
"A recent university study confirms what many have suspected; people who watch Fox News are less informed than people who don't watch the news at all." I love it!
Anyway in clicking around more Lou Colagiovanni is the author of a Facebook page called We survived Bush you will survive Obama. It's the best!
Thank you TC!

I don't watch Faux news at all, and at #5, I find Mr. Bill a racist, narcissistic boor at best. Thanks, Tom for this.

I've only watched The Fox Follies a few times, simply out of morbid curiosity. It must have been really difficult deciding which 5 to pick as the most outrageous. To watch these court jesters must be like watching the rec room at the asylum for the criminally stupid. The Fox Follies can cause permanent brain rot.

Republicans and Tea Baggers don't bother with facts. They just get in the way. They are masters at creative writing and just make things up to suit their discussion. Vote all Republicans and tea baggsers out of office in every state at every opportunity.

There is another group that I find irritating. Those who walk through life so removed from any news, that even when a major crisis hits, they have no idea what has happened. The explanation is universally, "I don't like politics." For most it comes as no surprise that there are news outlets that address only "things" happening around the world and do not get mired in the politics of each situation. That excuse really does not hold water. "I like being ignorant of the world." Now that is far more truthful statement.

I see some of Fox almost every week night, but Fox seen through the eyes of Jon Stewart is far more palatable than having to actually watch the idiots channel.

Thanks TC - you're getting your grove back!

You're hitting all my buttons today, Kit - for sure, the only thing worse than stupid politicians and Faux News are those who can't be bothered, don't care, find the news too depressing or otherwise just don't want to be bothered. They are, in fact, the ones that make life so much harder for the rest of us because we end up fighting battles for us and for them, too.

Remember when Cronkite just gave the actual news of the day. What kind of NEWS is it when Fox puts everything into a question ...IDLE TALK that is pure speculation and mainly to put the president or the democrats in a poor position who aren't even there to defend themselves against allegations of all kinds. ....NOT EVEN CLOSE TO BE TRUE !!! .such as.... is North Korea going to start testing again ? Is President Obama going to fire Sebelius ? .That isn't NEWS it's pure speculation IDLE TALK mainly to put ideas in people's heads that the administration or democrats aren't doing a good job.

Just sayin.....Saudi Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal, Prince Alwaleed bin Talal owns the second- largest block of stock (7 percent) in News Corp., Fox News' & Fox TV's Rupert Murdock faced police and government investigations into bribery and corruption by the British government and FBI investigations in the US. Remember Fox won a suit in Florida in 2003 against Jane Akre that they have the right to lie.....just goggle Jane Akre and read about it.

Thank-you Tom . . . don't watch the junk...periodically check NewSmack [aka:NewsMax} to see what they're up to and learn about the nonsense from other sources. For some reason "B" words just keep popping up when hearing anything from the Faux News Crowd. . .Bull, Bucks, Barf, Barbie, Botox, etc . . . deeply sad to see the gift of the human bio-form used in such mindless maniacal manners. . .

Note: Holding up even monumental sized mirrors doesn't work as they are completely besotted by their own grossly deformed images and reflections only serve to inspire them further. . .

Case-in-point: Several years ago. . . called NewSmack and Faux News to ask for "their" raw data sources . . .they refused and said ...quote... "we have them" . . .

I rather watch pro wresting than faux news at least they now call it entertainment there's nothing entertaining about the bullshit that these assholes are peddling

I noticed one of the articles referenced Geraldo and his Trayvon's hoodie meltdown. Somewhere on the 'net, I think in the past couple of weeks, there was an article about why do people look at a black teen in a hoodie and see a thug but they look at Mark Zuckerberg in a hoodie and see a genius. It was a site where I couldn't comment for some reason (maybe, like many, you can only comment through Facebook and I will not use Facebook), but I would like to go on record now:

When I look at Mark Zuckerberg in a hoodie, I see a white thug, one far more dangerous than any black teen. Hint: it's not the hoodie.

"… a University of Maryland study confirmed that people who watch Faux Noise are less informed than people who watch no news at all." I think the FCC should make FOX run that exact disclaimer at the bottom of the screen throughout the airing of any FAUX "News" programs!

Don't believe I have ever, deliberately
turned on Fox. Prefer to get the Noise
filtered through Jon Stewart.

Bill O’Reilly says Asians aren’t liberals because they’re “industrious and hard-working.”

Megyn Kelly insists Santa Claus is white.

Ben Carson compares LBGTQ people to NAMBLA, bestiality supporters.

Geraldo Rivera says jurors would have shot Trayvon Martin sooner than Zimmerman did.

Lauren Green interviews Reza Aslan, can’t figure out why a Muslim would write a book about Jesus.

Need I say more.....the titles to the 5 selections state it all. Sadly shaking my head.

I have to agree with a lot of the comments here. I also get enough faux noise through Jon Stewart.

Pity the poor soul(s) who had to watch FOX "News" in order to pick out the worst, that's just cruel and inhumane. I can't imagine having to endure that torture--after a very short time I'd either be suicidal or in the middle of a total psychotic break. And will somebody PLEASE tell the voices in my head to stop laughing, it wasn't that damn funny.

Yeah, Jon Stewart has a much better spin on Faux Spews. I couldn't watch fox follies without throwing my tv through the window. I can't afford another tv, so, no Faux Spews for me!! There is enough crap on the webby-web without sitting and watching their lies for one minute!
Can't wait for The Daily Show and The Colbert Report to get back on the air!
All of the Repuglicans should be beat like a drum in every election! We need to start working on that chore now!!!

I'm probably a bit biased, because most of the Fox News I get to see is through your pickings, TomCat, and a few other posts by Care2 members. So perhaps they have some real news items now and again, but I've yet to see one. But somehow I'm left with the impression the writers of Salon had a really hard time to select five "news items" for being worse than all the others. As Dave C. already mentioned, it must have taken ages to look through a year of news and decide which ones to nominate. And to hold down your stomach contents at the same time.

Noted, and flagged the spammer. I think Fox news should be aired with a warning, dangerous to intelligent minds.

Thanks Tom, It must have been very difficult to choose only 5.! I never expect anything remotely resembling intelligence to come out of Megyn Kelly's mouth. She posses no functioning brain cell. The rest of the "crew" at Faux Noise collectively = a banana slug.
