Majority of Republicans Only Trust Fox News

66%

Of Republicans only trust Fox News as opposed to 25% who don’t, according to Public Policy Polling. “Fewer than 25% of Republicans trust ABC, CBS, Comedy Central, MSNBC, CNN and NBC. They’re closely divided on PBS with 37% trusting it and 39% distrusting it. … It’s almost the opposite story when it comes to Democrats. Majorities of them trust ABC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, NBC News and PBS. And more of them than not (44/30) trust Comedy Central as well. The only outlet they don’t trust is Fox News, although 33% who do trust it is still more than the share of Republicans who trust any of the major networks.”

— President Barack Obama, at Thursday’s National Prayer Breakfast, which was attended by the Dalai Lama. Christianists were quick to retaliate: “Rush Limbaugh devoted a segment of his show to what he said were the president’s insults to the “whole gamut of Christians” and Twitter’s right wing piled on. Guests on Megyn Kelly’s Fox News show spent 15 minutes airing objections to the president’s comments,” the New York Times reports.

Did News Corp’s Muslim Billionaire Investor Force Fox News to Apologize for Anti-Islam ‘Errors’?
Or was Murdoch embarrassed by the ridicule over its lies about 'no-go zones' Fox received in Europe?

Fox News Host Says Obama Administration Is Anti-Awesome

The United States of America is awesome, we are awesome. We’ve closed the book on torture, and we’ve stopped doing it. And the reason they want to have this discussion is not to show how awesome we are. This administration wants to have this discussion to show us how we’re not awesome.
