Criticalstudies.org sounds pretty important, right? Wrong: USA says it’s an Iranian fake news front

Re: Disinformation?

I know this isn't going to be a popular opinion, but there's really nothing wrong with Fox News except its editorial stance.

Fox's opinion spewers, of whom there are way too many, include some of the most awful human beings in media anywhere, and that's against some very strong competition. But its news programs are fine. The hard part is keeping the two separate, but Fox isn't alone in having that problem - every news publisher has been struggling with that, ever since some wanker-who-deserves-a-very-special-place-in-Hell coined the phrase "24 hour news".

Don't take my word for it. Check out fivethirtyeight.com, which rates Fox among the most reliable and unbiased publishers of polls. Or the number of times just in the past 48 hours when Trump has lambasted them for not supporting his bullshit - and no, that's not "new" since the election, that's been going on for years now.
