It really says something about the state of our society that these people readily admit they are lying about reality, yet their followers don't care.  Just broken human beings.  

In addition to admitting in court that they are liars on air, they also have admitted that no one should take them seriously as "news". 

We should design some kind of pamphlet explaining all this, that we can pass out to our families at Christmas. "Why Fox is propaganda designed to melt your brain, with explanations from Fox employees themselves under oath".

This should be the preface on the first page-

"If it's bad, I say it's fake. If it's good, I say that's the most accurate poll ever."

Their followers will never find out about the lying because Fox News won't report on it.

Just like warnings on cigarette packs, I hope these voting machine lawsuits require Fox to run a banner before and after commercial breaks that remind viewers that no one should believe anything they see here. 

This is really the only acceptable outcome if we are to maintain a democracy.  You simply cannot have a massive disinformation network posing as real news.  We have our hands full with social media already, but the olds are still majorly susceptible to Fox News.

Oh my parents thought that what Elon is doing with Twitter is great.

I highly doubt they've ever been to Twitter.

No, this year Ukraine and Zelenskyy declared war on Christianity. Mission creep.

 

Is this still because of the several churches he shut down because the priests were "spying" and/or working for the Russians?

Man with newborn baby avoids work calls?  Wow.  My youngest is 3yo and I still pull shit shit.  I've been using "Can't make the 7am meeting, my oldest was up all night teething" for years.  And she's 8 now.

Jesus, those assclowns get angered by everything.

selling fear is kind of their whole business model, and the core of the modern conservative ethos

"Woke" has just become anything that they don't like. Or anything that might possibly help other people. 

It really has.  Anything that can be construed as different in any way from anything they are used to now.

Biggest fucking snowflakes in the history of the US.  They make Obama’s pajama boy look like Magnus von Magnusson, famed Scandinavian strongman.

Great reference, but it's Magnus Ver Magnusson

I definitely watched too many WSM contests back in the day.
