Fox News tells the truth

I'm putting it in the humor forum because it's so funny, but it's totally true.

I got started when the twitter account of the fictitious Roland B. Hedley Jr., a cartoon character who's a reporter in the Doonesbury comic strip. The twitter account mostly mocks the Republican President.

This account tweeted:

If you can't trust Fox News to put up the right graphic, who CAN you trust? Howie has to go. #SundayBTeam
So I dug into it.

It turns out that host Frank Luntz was talking about fake news when they mistakenly put up the results of a poll showing that Fox news was trusted much less than CNN or MSNBC.

He weakly stated "That is not the graphic we are looking for.

Hold off. Take that down please."

I saw that as well RNG. Even FOX admitted that CNN and MSNBC are far more trusted than FAUX BLUES. LOL

So as usual, TNV lies.

Is it that you don't bother reading a post in its entirety or are you incapable of it?

Get some child to help you navigate to the link in the OP. A link is the blue underlined entry in the post. If you click on it, that is hold the funny arrow that moves around when you move the mouse, and push down on the left side of the mouse, just like magic, the wonders of the interwebz will cause a page from a news source to appear. Then if you scroll down, as your child guide how to do that, there is a picture with a triangle in the middle. Click on that and the video will play and all will be explained to you.

If you can understand English.
