How Seriously Do You Take Faux News?

There has been an amazing amount of outrage in the Canadian blogosphere and media over a segment on Faux News which was snidely deriding the comments from one of our generals about the CAF needing a break after Afghanistan.

Yes, the Faux News commentary was inappropriate. But seriously, people, how credible is any organization that slavishly adopted every lie the BushCo Whitehouse fed them?

Depends on whether you've ever been on the receiving end of American commentary from one of the millions of individuals down South who still believe Fux tells the truth...because after all, why would a news business lie?

Or for that matter, now that I remember more wincing and sputtering, being on the receiving end of snowbirds (aka relatives) who go South and come back thinking they've been hearing the news.

And people want to bring that feed directly north of the Medicine Line via cable. Yay us.

Faux News has zero credibility. But the kinds of things those clowns were saying made my jaw drop, and there are people who are watching, even at 3 a.m. It wasn't satire. It was just ignorant and nasty.
