Actual Headlines v. Fox News Headlines

Buzzfeed has an absolutely hilarious article showing actual news articles compared to the Fox News, um, creative reinterpretation of those headlines. Here is just a small sampling of them:

Actual News Headline Fox News Headline
USDA gay-sensitifity training seeks larger audience Obama Bureaucrats Imposing Radical Homosexual Sensitivity Training?
Michele Bachmann’s First Dude The Left Launches Attack on Bachmann’s Husband
Obama Will Speed Pullout From War in Afghanistan Obama Doesn’t Thank Petraeus
NY Officials Want Schools to Teach About Unwanted Baby Laws NYC Public Schools Teaching How to Abandon Your Baby?

In each case, Fox News cited the articles with the “actual news headline” as their source. That’s fair and balanced!

    The problem with Faux News is that there are enough people that chose to listen to them that they can continue to grow and make money. Faux has just completed the heterodyne loop by taking the ignorant fear and hatred of a large number of Americans and feeding it back to them at a higher volume.

    So how do we combat that ignorance? I would say education, but as we all know the Republicans are defunding it. And if they get there way, the loop will really become closed as the same people build their own “education systems” that will teach their version of reality.

    Freedom is Slavery, Ignorance is Strength

    “Bachmann feels Obama uses too many limousines.”

    Liberal headlines: “Bachmann wants secret service cut back on Obama.” Don’t forget it was Bush who ordered the extra secret service on Obama because Obama was black. He wanted him protected. In fact, Bush has said he is an Obama supporter.

    I recognized those headlines as from FoxNation, not the actual Fox News site. It’s their completely biased, totally unfair companion site. Their minions love to point out that FoxNation is the opinion page for Fox News and not “actually” Fox News. But Fox News advertises Fox Nation as the place to go discuss the news topics of the day, so they really are attached at the hip.

One Trackback/Pingback

  1. [...] This might explain why political talk radio is popular with conservatives, but progressive talk radio has had more problems finding a large audience. Conservative talk radio often plays to fears and helps foster a sense of group membership. Or why conservative politicians are more willing to vote in lockstep with conservative talking points, while liberals are more willing to openly attack their fellow liberals. Or why Fox News engages in so much fear mongering. [...]
