In a discussion about Islamic ‘no-go zones’ in Western countries, a Fox News pundit has actually claimed that non-Muslims dare not enter Birmingham — and that London has Muslim religious police. “In Britain … there are actual cities like Birmingham that are totally Muslim where non-Muslims just simply don’t go in. Twitter has naturally exploded with lulz, using the hashtag #FoxNewsFacts […]
Forget waterboarding or other Enhanced Interrogation Techniques — all that’s required to get under Dubya’s torture-era deputy chief of staff Karl Rove is a light touch on the back of the hand: A flustered Karl Rove, faced w/ actual facts on enhanced interrogation, snaps at Sen Whitehouse not to touch him on FoxNews. Touchy, touchy. […]

Some classy victim blaming on Fox News, where the alleged rape of a 14 year-old girl apparently merits accusations that the victim is a liar and a criminal. Having claimed that “there are telltale signs of this girl actually lying”, criminal defence attorney Joseph DiBenedetto told viewers that — even if she had been raped — she should […]
Fox News have unveiled a “breathtakingly ridiculous” new newsroom, full of Star Trek style screens and comically huge tablet computers. In a video posted on their website yesterday, perma-tanned anchor Shepard Smith took viewers on a tour of the ludicrous new facility, a base for the Murdoch owned right-wing network’s new headline news show. It […]
Rupert Murdoch’s companies have been found to be grossly misleading the US public over climate change, with Fox News‘ coverage classed as giving dodgy info 93% of the time. In the report, compiled by the Union of Concerned Scientists, Murdoch’s Wall Street Journal comes a close second in the inaccuracy stakes, with a massive 81% […]
As the 2012 presidential election draws ever closer, Fox News seem to be augmenting their traditional right-wing spin with a forsaking of logic. The graph shown above clearly shows the news network attempting to claim that November’s 8.6% unemployment rate is greater than March’s 8.8% and equal to April’s 9.0%. Could it be that a […]
It is common knowledge how seriously US right wingers take their nations constitution, and now Fox News have hit upon a novel way to use it to rally their viewers to a cause: make a new section up themselves!

Embarking on a Top Trumps-style comparison of black politicians, Coulter concluded: “Our blacks are so much better than their blacks.” Coulter’s impassioned comments were spurred on by her vehement […]
