    Isn`t FOX already banned in Canada?
    I guess Canooks don`t have the freedom to poison people`s minds like we do here in the You Ess of Aye.

    Actually I believe that FN tried to get into Canada a few years ago but it was thrown out, much to the dismay of that imbecile, 5cats.

    Although I think we do have right-leaning outlets. The Sun is one I think... not sure. I don`t pay attention to useless things.

    Oh, note to Mods... it`s "Fox Fakes Footage" not fox NEWS fakes ITS footage!
    You totally ruined the cadence of the headline.

    Just an FYI...

    I have access to all American news channels, supplied by my cable provider, so I don`t believe it`s "banned", unless you`re talking about a Canadian version of Fox News, in which case it`s likely not to work because our CRTC mandates that all Canadian channels have a certain amount of Canadian-made content.

    In any case we don`t have nearly as many pundits in our news, and although it`s not always impartial news, you could consider us Switzerland compared to US news.

    Well the least they could do is basic fact-checking. This is assuming they didn`t air the footage intentionally in order to influence public opinion, which I`m not sure they didn`t do.

    Sorry Gerry, we get to witness your propaganda machine at work up here too.

    I think the irony is in that if they weren`t so far to the right they would have had more power convincing people of their position.

    The omg point for me was when Obama made a really on point speech about 3 years ago and because they couldn`t find something content wise to criticize they spent 30 minutes criticizing his body language instead.

    LazyMe: LOL, the Sun. I hate tabloids.

    Auburnjunky: Please do shred the damn constitution. Any document that protects peoples rights to be jerks to one another is useless.

    Free speech? By all means, but not if it pisses off everyone but you and your little group.

    Freedom of religion? You bet, just keep it to yourself. Don`t hate on mine, because you won`t see me hating on yours (I`ll disagree with your doctrine, but I won`t call you an idiot for following it).

    Right to bear arms? Sure, if you demonstrate common sense and are willing to comply with federal regulations pertaining to said arms. Anyone should be able to buy a gun, only a select few should be allowed to have firing pins and bullets.

    No, my country isn`t perfect either and I won`t claim it is. I`m just sharing my opinion on your consitution.

    Yep Draculya. Ban them, and shred the constitution while you`re at it.
    I`ve never found it a good idea in the first place to protect a right to lie outright.

    Freedom of speech needs to be tempered by a responsibility to the facts in reporting. Not "government sponsored" facts, but at the very least there needs to be a punishment for being called out when you blatantly lie to millions of people.

    Otherwise you get bullsh­it like Fox news and the case where they won, in court, the right to lie to their viewers as protected by the first amendment because they`re an "entertainment and opinion outlet."

    Of course, anyone with half a brain realizes that Fox is about as reliable a news source as the Onion anyway. Sad thing is, a great number of Americans lack even that much sense...

    So says a Russian news agency, that has screwed up on it`s own reporting, calling the death of Osama Bin Laden a hoax, downplaying the election protests in Russia, that Tokyo would have to be evacuated because of the fudgeushima Radiation and even going as far as to say that recent bus bombings in Israel were an inside job.

    They are just a mouthpiece for Putin.

    Fox only has to be slightly more intelligent than their viewers.

    Which means Fox can be as dumb as an effing brick and still be one step ahead of the mouth-breathing rednecks who watch it.

    Ad hominem. Just because their news is corrupt doesn`t negate Fox`s corruption or ameliorate the usage of untruths. All you`ve really pointed out here is that sometimes it takes one to know one.

    Is anyone dumb enough to think they did it on purpose, Some intern probably grabbed the wrong footage.

    Why do something like this when you know there is NO WAY, you are going to get away with it and are going to be destroyed for it.

    "Is anyone dumb enough to think they did it on purpose, Some intern probably grabbed the wrong footage."
    Except they have a long history of doing this same mistake regularly. Hell, Glen Beck made a career out of it. Using protests from california to lie about protests in Wisconsin. A huge rally video to lie about his own poorly attended rally in Washington. That`s just off the top of my head.

    @ajd121 Unfortunately, Fox News in particular has a very long history of this sort of thing, and they have never been destroyed for it. Instead they`ve become immensely popular in some circles.

    this is very typical of Fox News.

    this was clearly not a mistake...for Fox to say so is for them to assert that they believed an armed protest/revolt was occurring in Russia, when in fact nothing of the sort was happening.

    so either Fox`s employees are complete and total morons or they are trying to push their point of view and stir up trouble.

    Journalists have an underlying tendency to never let the truth get in the way of a good story.
    The sorry product of this practice of frequent lying is believed by a high percentage of the population, who rely on `brer journalist` for their knowledge of world affairs.
    The media have the power to influence the 50% of society, that is too stupid to question the diet of distorted rubbish being fed to them.
    We will never know if the media is the root cause of war and strife in world, because we cannot rely on then not to let the truth get in the way of a good story.
