This really happened: A Fox News host shows off his cufflinks that portray a caveman dragging a woman by the hair.

THIS ACTUALLY HAPPENED ON A NEWS CHANNEL.

no way

i can’t decide if this is figuratively or literally unbelievable

Literally look at this misdirecting shit. Look at it. 
Look at how they organize the y-axis in descending order in order to make the chart go DOWN, assuming people wont look at it for two seconds and assume that enrollment is falling when its actually nearly doubled since its first estimation. 
This is the kind of shit that Fox News pulls to lie to its viewers in plain sight. This is how desperate they are to discredit the ACA as unpopular and unwanted when its actually the opposite. 

Jfc.

Ever see something SO ridiculous that you check the notes for people crying “Fake!” and Snopes it just to make sure?
Nothing yet….

Wow….

This is fake. It’s from a @darth tweet.

This asshole.

See, this is what’s going on here: Colbert thinks he’s making fun of Washington Redskins’ owner Dan Snyder and his open letter announcing a new charity to “make a real, lasting positive impact on Native American quality of life,” all the while defending the team’s name. With this little quip (which was also featured as a segment on his show, apparently), Colbert and his liberal white audience believe themselves to be SO OBVIOUSLY above and beyond racism to the point where they can ironically deploy racist slurs to ostensibly insult fellow white people’s ignorance, oblivious to the very real and still quite literal hurt that those slurs continue to evoke for its targets. Because, you see, the joke is not for Asian people. Here, Asians are just collateral damage in the service of white liberals enjoying the freedom to mock the people they deem the REAL racists (by racially mocking the people racists supposedly mock, funny how that works). And according to Colbert’s supporters, Asian people should understand that our role here is to swallow our discomfort and be appreciative that our pain was used as a comedic device for the greater goal of self-congratulatory “progressive” white entertainment.

Just a suggestion: If you’re going to make this critique, spend a few minutes necessary to watch the segment in question, so you can argue from strength, not partial information of one tweet.

In 1986, the United Way attempted to break the world record for balloon launches, by releasing 1.5 million balloons, which resulted in two deaths, millions in lawsuits, and a devastating environmental impact.

Fox’s Krauthammer Very Upset FCC Wants To Study Their Propaganda Channel

The Republicans are horribly upset about an FCC study — which the agency is required by law to conduct — that is “intended to examine barriers of entry into the news media industry for small businesses.” So naturally they’re screaming bloody murder, carping that… gasp!!!… it could lead to the return of the Fairness Doctrine. And of course the pundits at Fox like Charles Krauthammer are up in arms as well…
Krauthammer claimed that there’s plenty of diversity in the media, but failed to mention that fact that 90% of the media is now controlled by just six companies. Sorry Charles, but this isn’t my idea of a “diverse media.”


GE does not own Comcast. This chart is outdated.
