Hello /tv/. I'm from /tg/. I need strategies that Fox News uses because I play a character in a game based on Fox News, so I need to mislead people to obey my politics. I already stole the idea of Water's World.
That bitch often has a thing about black people doing fried chicken and watermelon shit that's pretty edited. Maybe once every couple weeks. They put it at then end and laugh about it, like it's normal news, that whole closing on a lighter note thing. But the story doesn't matter, a guy and his pit bbq or whatever, it's the laughing part that's important.
>pose an opinion as a question
Is OP a faggot?
>use other people's opinons to confirm your opinion
Is OP a faggot? well, 70 percent of people that were polled say yes
>skew polls in your favor
for example an actual question of a poll may be "do you think OP is married" and make the assumption
people think OP does not like the company of women
people think OP is a faggot
>le Fox News is the devil meme
Fox News is actually the LEAST deceptive cable news channel left.
CNN and MSNBC do the same shit in a different way
This.. They legitimately are centrist, regardless of what you hear from Reddit. I know because my mom watches it all the time and I hear. I find myself pissed off at all the leftism on it.
They are all pretty bad anon. We can cherry pick all day.
>CNN and MSNBC do the same shit in a different way
Fox straight up lies because they don't consider themselves a news outlet so they're not bound by the same rules of journalism.
It's a false comparison, Fox got a ruling in court officiating them as an entertainment medium.
CNN and MSNBC do it too though. Fox just never backpedals because for their audience, it doesn't really matter. They're not pretending to be anything different than what they are.
>Western Jew are disproportionatley represented in mass media, finance and politics
>unrestricted illegal immigration will have serious repercussions
>Holocaust was politicized, mythologized and even commercialized to suit various interest groups
>identity politics are bullshit
That's what Fox wants you to think, that they're just giving equal time to another side of the story but really nothing comes close to Fox levels of fabrication.
They're just making shit up and they're allowed to do it because they're not officially a news outlet. That's why you almost never see them apologizing for a fuck up.
Even MSNBC makes the occasional retraction. Fox is so far up its ass and of course none of you dipshits ever bother fact checking.
No I agree. I'm just saying that since they started it, the other two overcompensate with left-leaning politics because Fox moved the goalpost. There's no way Sharpton should have his own show and CNN is practically foaming at the mouth for unrest in the streets after every verdict and are in fact helping to foment it.
See all of those points are facts and that's what /pol/ used to be (when it was pretty decent and actually wanted to point out bullshit in the world) but now its LITERALLY a combination of stormfront 2.0 and christianmingle.com where all critical discussion not fitting the hivemind is shut down.
/pol/ is dead
You say that and yet you and many others bizarrely haven't been able to point out a single thing they've gotten wrong when put on the spot.
Even now you'd probably have to look it up just find something posted on some tinfoil website.
The most I ever hear about CNN or MSNBC (usually the latter) is that they're "too smug," which isn't really an argument at all.
"God why are those liberals so smug?"
Basically you've gravitated to the source that tells you what you feel most comfortable hearing, and everything else is just leftist tripe.
Basically you've been force-fed Fox propaganda for so long that that's become your new paradigm and point of reference.
>fox is actually the most center news alphabet soup MSM outlet there is
>the lefty faggots at all the other stations are so far left, that fox seems ultra omega right by comparison
Wonder who's behind this....
I'm not the same guy, but fuck me Fox news just straight up lies and changes figures while never admitting it. Point me to several good examples of CNN and MSNBC doing that and I might be inclined to accept that, but if they are truly as bad as Fox its a wonder the country knows anything
>I'm just saying that since they started it, the other two overcompensate with left-leaning politics because Fox moved the goalpost.
It's actually the opposite.
The other networks are more right-leaning because they see how well Americans respond to red meat.
As a nation we're way more right wing and willing to follow fringe conservative politics than we were during the Cronkite days. Now Eisenhower, Reagan and even Bush Jr.would be considered pinko lefties by today's Trump/Tea Party conservatives that have basically kicked the moderates to the curb.
It's gotten to where Fox News can't even keep up with the monster they created.
>MSNBC and CNN which are both just as bad as Fox
Except they're not, that's just a lie you tell yourself to to justify you only following Fox.
Those other networks are nowhere near Fox's level of bullshit and you really are a brainwashed idiot if you can't see that.
Not who you're responding to but that's actually the best way to talk about it. Otherwise it's build wall kill jews no part of holocaust ever happened. No nuance or thoughtfulness LEADS to identity politics and everybody ends up suffering. This is how you exploit an electorate basically, say it dumb, say it loud and say it again and again and again.
1. i dont watch fox senpai
2. How about the disproportionate amount of time they give to stories about black kids being killed by cops when they never cover the stories of black on black crime when black on black crimes is exponentially higher. How about them ruining the lives of these cops who are most overwhelmingly found NOT GUILTY in the court of law yet they are never able to work again due to the LIBEL and SLANDER by the mainstream media?
This is just the most blatantly false thing I've read in a while
They ruled that if the individual program was a "commentary show" they could present "opinions" whether they were true or not
If the show is classified as a "news" show it's illegal to lie
90% of MSNBC's shows are commentary shows, 60% of Fox, and 50% of CNN are commentary shows
>And liberals think conservatives lie to prove their points
>Those other networks are nowhere near Fox's level of bullshit and you really are a brainwashed idiot if you can't see that.
Except they are, and I DONT WATCH FOX
Literally return to reddit F A M
>Trump and the Tea Party
This is hilarious
Apparently all it takes is opposing higher taxes and opposing illegal immigration makes you "far-right" these days.
You are legitimately a sheep.
>MSNBC and CNN which are both just as bad as Fox
nah, maybe MSNBC for being more left red meat, but CNN is just milquetoast slightly corporate sponser pandering news.
You're a faggot who doesn't know dick about shit.
>Fox news just straight up lies and changes figures while never admitting it.
Do you have any actual hard-evidence of this?
Most of the ones on Google Images have been Photoshopped.
>You say that and yet you and many others bizarrely haven't been able to point out a single thing they've gotten wrong when put on the spot.
MSNBC literally edited a phone-call's audio to make Zimmerman sound "more racist".
CNN aired a legitimate segment on how Zoe Quinn was the "victim of a misogynist hate-campaign by people that hate 'female gamers'".
They also have regular articles on their website about how real "rape culture" is.
>Basically you've been force-fed Fox propaganda for so long that that's become your new paradigm and point of reference.
OH THE IRONY
The irony is that you think you're not completely brainwashed sheep.
You're in for a rude awakening when your fruity lunatic of a candidate doesn't even make it past the primaries.
I take comfort in knowing that in your old age, you'll either have outgrown this phase of retardation or you'll go completely insane when the world doesn't turn out the way you hope.
Unbias non-american here.
Fox News are actually the least manipulative mainstream American news source because they often get someone with an opposing view on with other talking heads to give the liberal opinion on the topic at hand but you'll never see a right wing person on any liberal news station being allowed to give their 2 cents.
Fox is extremely biased but MSNBC is just off the charts with bias
My dad watching it the other day and they were arguing how illegal Trump's plan to kick out all the Muslims was
They had lawyers and everything and they argued for 5 minutes about how illegal it is to kick out all the Muslims
Except Trump has never said anything about kicking Muslims out
He's said some offensive stuff, but they had a 5 minute circlejerk over something he never even said
The whole network is a joke
Nigger, stfu. You're a goddamned retard. You're not fucking smart, you're not fucking "enlightened", you don't know "the truth", you don't know shit. You're a piece of trash whining about "muh librullll bias" on a wapanese imageboard.
CNN is shitty, but because it's just boring and unwilling to step on anyones toes (corporate sponsors most of all).
It's miles better than Fox or MSNBC because at least they attempt to be unbiased in a left/right sense.
Godamn, I am so fucking sick of the retards in this country.
>show me good examples
Dude they lie when it has nothing to do with politics are your retarded
News agencies mostly lie by omission or have plausible deniability. They're pieces of shit on the whole and there is virtually nothing on the electric jew worth defending
They use hot women as guests on all their shows.
FOX does this more than any "news" channel on TV
Here are things aren't exclusive to FOX that all TV news dabbles in to different degrees:
>They invent sensationalist narratives that prey on sensitive issues and preconceived biases to incite a reaction and thus ratings
>They pick and choose instances of "news" that most fit the narrative they're trying to spin.
>The ignore or dismiss inconvenient facts that go against whatever narrative they're pushing.
>They invite "Expert" guests with agreeable viewpoints to lend misleading weight to the station's agenda
>The anchors police the topics that can be talked about, sometimes outright cutting off guests that go "off script"
>They accompany stories with imagery that cue audiences what to think about it
>They allot time to stories based on their potential ratings rather than their "importance"
>They accept money to air or not air certain pieces. (CNN took money to not air a documentary that cast Bahrain in a negative light)
>They use charismatic spokespeople to sway audiences
>Bury potentially disagreeably or unfavorable stories under pulp and "personal interest" stories
There's other stuff. As you might could tell, I do not have a high opinion of TV news.
>It's a false comparison, Fox got a ruling in court officiating them as an entertainment medium.
This is completely false.
The fact that you fell for Internet Clickbait without checking your facts and honestly believed it was real indicates you are in no position to accuse anyone else of relaying inaccurate information.
>these are his only platforms
Haha. You really don't read up much on Trump, do you? He's saying everything to get attention like he's always been doing since he started ruining for office in the 90s
He knows he won't get the nomination, he's just trying to drum up as much fanfare so he can sell his new book.
>Any non American can see that you're one of the most right wing nations on the fucking planet
I love when libshits tell themselves this.
Yes, you're nation is super "moderate" when it literally appropriates tax-payer money to buy clean needles for Heroin-addicts.
>frogposter calling someone else an idiot
Theoretically the rest of the world could just go straight communist and it would fit your retarded argument
America isn't conservative, we started half the shit plaguing the rest of the world
If you keep up for any period of time it becomes obvious the right in this country is just reactionary, much like every other western shithole
>You had no argument to begin with
Do you just ignore things you don't like?
>Trump and the Tea Party
>Apparently all it takes is opposing higher taxes and opposing illegal immigration makes you "far-right" these days.
That's the argument. Refute it or quit wasting everyone's time.
Did you get confused and think you were "trolling" or something?
Sums up the Republican platform quite nicely.
1. Do literally nothing for eight years
2. Blame it on the brown man in the oval office despite him having like a 50% approval rate vs like 10% for congress.
3. Something something BENGHAZIIIII
>defending anime unironically
Wait, let me laugh even harder
CNN is pretty centered with but their anchors usually have a slight liberal bias, which is impossible to completely hide
Fox is pretty conservative, but besides O'Reilly and Hannity they're a right wing version of CNN
MSNBC is just the Daily show 24/7
>getting triggered for the president being held accountable for being the president
You faggots literally lost your minds when Bush was in office.
Now that he's not, the president apparently can't be held accountable for anything.
holy shit you have to be underaged
there is literally no way an adult can have this elementary of a worldview on politics
this may be the first time in my life I have ever been legitimately triggered
>do literally nothing for 8 years
So an extended military campaign in multiple hostile nations is nothing?
>implying Pragmatism is anyhow flawed
>blame it on the brown man
nobody cares he's black, only black people care he's black
>50% approval rate
>implying approval rating is a good metric to base a President's actions off of
>implying Benghazi was not the biggest fuck up this government has done since the Iran-Contra affair
OP, you are a glorious bastard for creating this thread. Have you even had to stir the pot once since making the thread?
lel, people hated Bush because he started 2 trillion dollar quagmires to no benefit and blew a hole so massive in the budget due to unnecessary tax cuts and the aforementioned wars, that we might not ever fully recover from it.
>present the argument twice
>"You still have no argument!"
Again, do you think you are "trolling"?
There is more to "trolling" than just going into threads and forcing people to repeat themselves.
>to no benefit
you're probably the type of person that believe that ISIS is a legitimate entity of mudslimes trying to take over the world, aren't you?
senpai, the game is so much bigger
That's not a bias, that's just what they think is pertinent news
They might lack journalistic integrity but I don't consider that a bias
MSNBC would have said "Jury blows Zimmerman case and let's a murderer walk"
>Any non American can see that you're one of the most right wing nations on the fucking planet
If you're watching TV news you're passively swallowing propaganda.
It doesn't matter if it's FOX, CNN, RT, BBC, Sky News, Al Jezeera, or MSNBC. They all have some kind of axe to grind and they all routinely misconstrue or misrepresent reality to their own ends as a matter of doing business.
If you honestly cared about getting "unbiased" news you wouldn't be getting it from the TV. If you DO gets your news from the TV arguing about which has "Less" or "More" bias is pissing in the wind.
gay marriage is such a tiny issue
we're not a left-leaning nation just because faggots can get married
i know you're underaged but please don't post about politics when you have no clue what you're talking about
Nobody gives a fuck about a few cheeky bombs moron.
A bomb here, a bomb there. Whatever, it's not ideal, but everyone does it.
People do care when we've wasted trillions of dollars doing fuckall in Afghanistan and Iraq. If you can't see the fucking difference between 10 years of attempted trillion dollar war vs. dropping a few bombs on occasion, just kill yourself for the good of the voter pool.
That's because its much more newsworthy when a cop shoots an unarmed black than when some niggers kill each other over some gonorrhea infested hoe. People expect that shit from black thugs, not cops. Cops are supposed to be trustworthy and unbiased upholders of the law. Now if they're denying the fact that black on black crime is the most common in America thats a different story, but It would get fucking redundant if they reported every act of violence comitted by a black e.g. Fox News
>gay marriage is such a tiny issue
>The Supreme Court felt the need to outright override the right of a State to decide which unions they recognize as official and which ones they do not, simply due to "MUH FEELINGS"
If it was such a tiny issue then why did Liberals literally lose their minds over it, and then go full-on Big Government over it in order to please a minority?
To all of the morons ITT who think that Fox is worse than MSNBC, see pic. Anyone with this opinion has either never watched Fox, and just goes by soundbites, or is so indoctrinated that they are beyond saving. I'm not saying that Fox is worth watching, but in terms of OP ED bias MSNBC takes the cake.
Can you please point me to the two trillion dollar wars Obama started?
Quit trying to excuse horrendous fucking results and drawing false equivalences because muh Obama. It's so fucking idiotic it makes my brain hurt. I admit I'm left of center politically, but I didn't give a fuck when Reagan and Bush senior dropped a few bombs on occasion because they didn't waste 5 trillions dollars that could have been put towards infrastructure, healthcare, education, social security, or expanded medicare/medicaid.
Quit. Being. Fucking. Dense.
>Can you please point me to the two trillion dollar wars Obama started?
I can point you to the ones he actively continued and escalated.
>it's OK when Obama does it but not Bush
>also that decision was totally unconstitutional
I'll forward this to John Roberts. I'm sure they'll re-hear the case since you said it was unconstitutional, despite it being declared constitutional by the group which decides whether something is unconstitutional or not.
senpai, this is not a partisan issue
These conflicts in the middle east have been going on during Clinton's presidency, Bush Sr's Presidency, Bush Jr's presidency, and Obama's presidency
These wars are those of the Washington political machine and the military industrial complex
You're playing right into their hands when you pick sides and point fingers.
It's not me (right) vs you (left), its us (the people) vs THEM (the powers that b)
Having seen all three, I definitely believe this. I've become more and more disgusted by the fact-light opinion-heavy shit I've seen on MSNBC over the past few years. The Ed Show is straight pandering garbage. He's essentially Rush Limbaugh's liberal mirror. I say this as a center-leftist who has long disliked Fox news. I just don't like bs news that seems like it's trying to reinforce my assumptions just to make me feel good about myself.
>These conflicts in the middle east have been going on during Clinton's presidency, Bush Sr's Presidency, Bush Jr's presidency, and Obama's presidency
And yet nobody wasted trillions of dollars until Bush Jr. and Dick Cheney decided they wanted to swing their dicks around in places we shouldn't.
This nigger gets it.
Did you even read the post you are responding to? It doesn't matter which figurehead they've got you arguing for or against. In the end, they all serve the same people, and have the same agenda. They just keep us arguing about minor, or irrelevant stuff, while they keep on doing whatever the hell they want.
>It doesn't matter which figurehead they've got you arguing for or against. In the end, they all serve the same people, and have the same agenda. They just keep us arguing about minor, or irrelevant stuff, while they keep on doing whatever the hell they want.
you're too far gone to even reason with
literally just a pawn for the system
>le left vs right meme arggh if only i had a lefty president all this would be fixed
OH FUCKING WAIT
EVERY president spent trillions on war
the defense budget was 400 mil during Clinton's presidency, it peaked at 700 mil during Bush's which has been maintained and has not been reduced significantly in Obama's 8 years.
Guess what, the President doesn't set the budget. CONGRESS DOES.
The military spending has been increased thanks to the lobbying of Congress by the military industrial complex.
And maybe these wars are fucking good but you're liberal brain can't comprehend that we're destabilizing the region to prevent another fucking Ottoman empire popping up under the leadership of Iran who has repeatedly seeked to expand power, land and influence in the region. Imagine a world superpower of religious zealots of an enormous stretch of land connecting Eurasia laterally and major ports and waterways while sitting on top of huge reserves of oil. Imagine what would happen.
>m-muh medicare m-muh social security
fucking grow up kid, the world is bigger and more complicated than you think it is
Of course it is legally constitutional but it is not legitimately constitutional
If the court wasn't filled with corrupt hyper-ideological kikes it would be deemed unconstitutional
>another fucking Ottoman empire popping up under the leadership of Iran
This is terribly farfetched.
A Shia theocracy laying claim to a majority Sunni middle east? How do you figure?
Iran is certainly trying to project and consolidate soft power across the region, as seen with the close ties to the Shia run governments of Iraq and Syria as well as their support for the Shia Houthi rebels in Yemen, but an "Ottoman Empire" of Iran? Ridiculous. Not even the Ayatolla dreams of it.
>surveys conducted on Americans' knowledge of world news and current events
>Fox News viewers demonstrated to consistently be the most misinformed
>Bill O'Reilly doesn't even deny it "we have the most viewers, we can't help it if some of them aren't paying attention"
His name is Darren Wilson.
He shot a person.
The shot was fatal.
The person's name was Mike Brown.
Mike Brown was unarmed.
Mike Brown was black.
Which of these statements is not a fact? Facts are deception now?
