Panel 7 is funny.

If he didn't have a chance of winning, panel 3 would be hilarious.

I saw his doodles on Slate. He's definitely unbalanced in some way.

Interesting use of math. Someone needs a calculator and/or some ethics.

Since when is 8.6 higher than 8.8 AND 9.0

Yet another "oh, whoops, sorry" mistake from Fox. Funny how they all tilt the same way.

Seriously, how can anyone take that junk seriously? Yet some do. *bewilderment*

Fox mistakes are collected by Media Matters for America, who watches the 24x7 channel 24x7, and only report the mistakes that follow their narrative.

Well then they shouldn't give them so damn much ammunition!

As a multi-kabillion dollar corp, they could hire someone to sort of check that kind of stuff.

It's willful ignorance. You know, like G-dub had.

The way you say that sounds like you're critical of them. Are you?

Yes, I think they are part of the new divisiveness that is destroying the nation.

Only in an academic "critique-ey" way

But Toad, don't you think I have a point? That they shouldn't give so much ammo? Do you think a right-leaning reporting agency wouldn't jump all over it if the tables were turned?

So, I do think that they practice willful ignorance, then like to point out how this damn liberal media picks on them.

Really, they have money. Why can't they be more accurate? Answer? Then CAN, they don't wanna. They get away with it with their sheep, and they look shamefully embarrassed when it's pointed out. "Oh we're so sorry but we made a wittle mistake and quit picking on us we're really TRYING for fair and balanced."

IN fact, it's pretty puke-worthy when you think of it, and to lie back and say they're being picked on is not taking a stand, it's buying into the very divisiveness that FOX itself strives for.

I should make my theme "Calm and Thoughtful" then when I'm mean I can feign innocence when people say "OMG you're not REALLY Calm and Thoughtful"?

Fox News is also part of the new divisiveness that is destroying the nation.

MMfA figures the best way to combat this is not to fight divisiveness but to amp it up.

Anyone operating 24x7 is going to fuck up graphics, no matter how much money is thrown at the problem.

As a non-Fox viewer, you have made this up in your own head. You fill the painting out with your own colors, with the way you prefer the world to look. It's not personal, everyone does this. I however am trying to avoid it.

I don't know....

Amping up would be to create and distribute their own incorrect, misleading graphics, etc. Do they go beyond correcting Fox's "mistakes"?
