Fox News: Exposed

Have you heard the news about the Fox News Network apologizing to Canadians for one of their show’s “extra ignorant” segments?

I saw this video before the hoopla about apologies and it really made me angry. Angry enough to post it on my Facebook feed and write an email to the show saying I hope their show is cancelled, and that the complexities of a World War at the stage of weaponry we have today (e.g. nuclear bombs) eludes them.

Be warned this video is really ignorant stuff, and it could make you really angry. You may even join a Facebook group about it!

This is a great “comeback” to the segment. It is a series of pictures and words depicting the history of the Canadian/U.S. military relationship shown over the audio of the show’s segment.

I am very surprised it garnered this much publicity, but you can’t make fun of over 150 Canadian heroes and expect to get away with it.

Side note: Fox News only exists because there is a market for their nonsense. I was watching Bill Maher and one of his guests, Keith Olbermann, said that after talking to the owner, Rupert Murdoch, he found out money is his only motivation for producing the channel. If he could make money running a totally liberal channel, he would do it.

Food for thought.

  1. This has added to my hate for FOX news… Now officially boycotting them (though I don’t watch much TV to begin with).

  2. I wish there was a way to cancel just one channel so we could make a point that would effect them financially.

  3. great story,
    thanks

  4. Do you think it would’ve gotten as much publicity if there wasn’t things like facebook to spread the video? If it wasn’t for that maybe people wouldn’t of been as aware of the video, and wouldn’t of contacted Fox and others..

  5. Thanks for the comments guys!

    Good point, Laura.
    Social media is a part of trend of social awareness that is keeping organizations accountable for their actions.

    I would also like to dedicate this post to my friend Cody McMullen who just finished a tour in Afghanistan. Glad you are home safe, buddy!
