Fox Finally Maybe Manages To Embarrass Themselves

Amazing: After a long, fabled history of lies, mishaps, distortions and omissions, Fox & Friends finally posted a graphic so egregiously dishonest even they couldn't stomach it, managing to double the rate of unemployment under Obama by basically comparing apples to rutabaga. They plan to issue a correction, which is good. They likely assume not many of their 1 million viewers will notice, which is not. Here are 11 more oops' - gross factual errors followed by on-air retractions and corrections - their viewers probably didn't care about either.

FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
