Fake News – Fox, CNBC and CNN Style

by Dr. David Gruder

The following two videos from The Daily Show are brilliant illustrations of today’s massive deficits in journalistic integrity. The clips speak for themselves. The moral of the story is one of my frequent refrains on the many radio interviews I provide each week: what you think is fact is usually spin. (Adobe Flash Player required to view both of the following videos.)

This next clip is an all-too-typical example of the hypocritical double standard in reporting that permeates Fox News (spin conservative style) and CNBC (spin progressive style). Which station’s integrity deficits are more disgustingly unpatriotic? Spin is spin no matter where on the political spectrum it occurs.

    Thanks for providing the "no call" list available to folks in Wisconsin. For those who don’t live in Wisconsin, one way to find out if a "no call" list exists in your state or province, is to try googling "______ no call list" where "_______" is your state, province or country. I added myself to reputable "no call" and "no junk mail" lists years ago and they really work.

    What a factual article. Thanks for the nice update. Keep it up! But aside from that breaking and sizzling report let me impart something new concern to you.  Residents of the great state of Wisconsin wishing to no longer be bedeviled with annoying telemarketers are urged to sign up for the Wisconsin No Call List.  Those already on the Wisconsin No Call List are urged to renew, at nocall.wisonsin.gov, where they can, for free and without needing no faxing payday loans, make it so it is illegal for them to get called to try and sell them magazines, long distance, or underwater woven baskets.  No call lists, including the federal lists, have been popular, as very few people like to get telemarketing calls.  It’s great to know that you don’t need debt relief to get on a no call list, especially those on the Wisconsin No Call List.
