Every once in a while one of my posts gets a lot of traffic. Yesterday it was this on.
2 different independent studies find FOX and Republicans (who get their ‘news’ from FOX) – lie.
‘Surprise! 72 Percent of Fox News Climate Reports are LIES’!
‘The above is a pie chart created by the UCS over the course of
a one year study (conducted in 2013) of various networks’
climate change coverage on the three major cable news networks:
CNN, MSNBC and Fox’.
‘The USC found that Fox covered climate change 50 times over
2013 and that 72 percent of the statements made were either
misleading or outright false’.
‘CNN — 70 Percent Accuracy’
‘MSNBC — 92 Percent Accuracy'(1)
Actually as it turns out, there is a very good chance they are.
‘A study by the nonpartisan Center for Media and Public Affairs at George Mason University have found that Republicans are significantly more likely to lie than Democrats’.
‘And here is the kicker that the liberals have been saying all along: the lying gap between Republicans and Democrats is widening as President Barack Obama spends more time in office’.
‘In their study, 100 statements involving factual claims by Democrats (46 claims) and Republicans (54 claims) were examined, which were fact-checked by PolitiFact.com during the four month period from the start of President Obama’s second term on January 20 through May 22, 2013′.
‘In just four months worth of fact checking the GOP was found to be lying the most. Here is what they found’:
‘PolitiFact rated 32% of Republican claims as “false” or “pants on fire,” compared to 11% of Democratic claims – a 3 to 1 margin’.
Conversely, Politifact rated 22% of Democratic claims as “entirely true” compared to 11% of Republican claims – a 2 to 1 margin.
A majority of Democratic statements (54%) were rated as mostly or entirely true’,
‘Compared to only 18% of Republican statements were rated true’.
‘Conversely, a majority of Republican statements (52%) were rated as mostly or entirely false’,
‘Compared to only 24% of Democratic statements were rated false.
‘Regarding Benghazi, the IRS and the Associated Press, Republicans have continued to fare worse than Democrats, with 60% of their claims rated as false so far this month (May 1 – May 22)’.
‘Compared to 29% of Democratic statements rated as false – a 2 to 1 margin’.
However, it should be known that Politifact has won the Pulitzer Prize for its non-partisan journalism. And they gave President Obama the lie of the year with his “You can keep your health insurance” claim’.
‘If you look back on the 271 ‘Pants on Fire’ claims that Politifact has measured since 2007 – 217 of them have been perpetrated by conservatives’.
‘They range from chain emails claiming the ACA will question your sex life, to President Obama being a Marxist Muslim’.
‘Now well all know every politician lies. But why do Republicans do it more often? And do they really still think they can get away with it’?(2)
