As if we needed any further evidence that the end times for America are nigh, results of a poll conducted by Quinnipiac University found that FOX News provides the most trusted news coverage among cable and broadcast news programs.
If you’re like me, you just spit coffee all over your laptop. Only slightly reassuring is the fact that the results run along partisan lines, with 58% of Republicans and 25% of Independents voting for FOX, while Democrats heavily favored CNN and only 3% voted for FOX News.
Still, this is messed up. How are there so many people willing to admit they trust FOX News? FOX News isn’t even news! It’s the right-wing propaganda channel. Its viewers are consistently at rock bottom on the scale of best-informed audiences for news shows. There are libraries filled with the lies, half-truths and distortions that FOX News barfs out on a daily basis. Why in the name of all that is holy would anyone rely on FOX for their news?
Maybe this is an Onion piece that slipped through the cracks. I don’t know anyone who would watch FOX News for anything other than a good laugh. John Stewart just finished up a 14-year career exposing the lies of FOX News night after night after night.
Excuse me while I curl up into a tight ball and cry myself to sleep.
