Give it up FOX News


People are playing the blame game.

As journalists, we have a duty to report the facts to the public.

Through emails, Internet on cell-phones, iPads, Kindles, computers, newspapers and magazines, people are reading some type of news.

Journalists take time to attend big events and are the first people to report about them and get all the information out to the viewers.

However, now with the use of the web, journalists are having to quickly put up information, but not all of it is completely correct at that time.

Instead of understanding,though, people in this world are going insane over how wrong and idiotic the media are for reporting wrong information.

This has been going on for a long time, but one news source that stands out to everyone is Fox News.

The Fox News network is heavily biased station toward Republicans.

It is a news source that I will never watch unless I want a good laugh.

From the misuse of words in their scripts, to their horrible headlines and even deeper problem stories, Fox News is nothing but a joke to me.

In 2012 Fox News covered a car chase in Phoenix, Az. A man got out of his car and started running down a hill, pulled out a gun and shot himself in the head, committing suicide.

Fox News played this on air, even when it was delayed and had plenty of time to stop it before this happened. That is sickening to me.

No one needs to see that and there was a reason not one other news network followed the story.
Yesterday, I was going through Yahoo’s news updates and I saw something by Fox News that caught my eye.

Fox News misjudged Zooey Deschanel as the second suspect, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, for the Boston marathon bombing. Now, instead of reporting that on your news station, why would you not look into it first, and try to get your facts straight?

No. 1, Tsarnaev is a male.

The local Fox News affiliate reported in closed captioning on the screen, “He is 19-year-old Zooey Deschanel.” Does he understand what he just said?

How could that have possibly come out of his mouth?

Fox News never stops surprising me with its content.

In this day and age I think that reporting good and accurate news is so important.

There is so much going on in the world today that people need to be informed quicker than on a daily basis.

I know a handful of conservative people who actually watch Fox News and I just cannot understand it.

Nothing I have seen from it is worthy enough for me to take away and believe it.

I already check multiple new sources to get all the facts, but Fox News?

It should be on Comedy Central because everything they say is a joke.

So if you are looking to laugh, tune into Fox.
