The lying Press can kill our economy in debt and strip our nation of factories

This organization is just admitting the tip of the iceberg for how much deceit they create.

The problem is the public was sold huge lies on supply side economics. Massive lies. All lies. Every last word of it. Bad for the rich, the poor the middle class everyone last one of us has been harmed materially.

If you believe it is all about tax cuts you have been harmed. If you support lower taxes you are harming our nation. We have $32 tr in debt and for some 40 years no industrial policy. That has been idiotic. To say this is about welfare is just nastiness to poor people. Ironically the seniors get the welfare which is a very small part of the federal state and local budget. While SS has until more recently been used for interagency debt. In other words self sufficient. The only reason SS is not self sufficient today is the income ladder has been beaten to crap by the supply side econ lies.

If you really think what Faux Noise did was just a First Amendment freedom of the press thing, ask yourself is sowing discord and lies about an election and being part to an attempted coup really something to be protected???

My fearless forecast, Fox Noise will not change it’s MO one bit, just like Cramer didn’t after his dressing down by Jon Stewart, or JPM, after it pays another multimillion dollar settlement for yet another violation of securities laws.

Because crime pays in Shiny-land, if you are a big enough crook.

Be fun to see how much they offer to settle the Smartmatic suit…

They will pay nearly anything to keep Rupert, and their paid talking heads, out of the dock. As long as they don’t say anything in public, they can keep insisting it’s all a big conspiracy of Soros, Commies, and wokies.

Dominion’s annual revenues are on the order of $40 million a year, so I’d guess profits are 10-15% of that. So the settlement was many, many multiples of actual damages. Apparently $787.5 Million is the amount Rupert Murdoch is willing to pay to keep his media stars from admitting under oath that they are lying stooges. Double that, if Fox folds in the Smartmatic case too.

Imagine 40 years of lying about supply side econ and not one person in congress will use the term “supply side econ” as of today.

Looks like you posted about 25mins ago. I’ll see if I can post.

Just guessing…maybe TPTB at the Fool are Fox Noise fans and they don’t want a lot of posting that doesn’t put Fox in a good light.

I’d guess that this version of boards has a “velocity” tool that can be turned on for current political events that can often garner many many rapid replies that cascade.

They have mostly if not all insisted on being huge liars. It is not just Dominion. It is not some sort of one off. Do not be gullible steer clear of Fox no matter how lacking your econ knowledge is Fox is just using you.

Dealbook, NYT

The game plan revolved around getting damaging evidence out in public, Hootan Yaghoobzadeh of Staple Street Capital, which owns Dominion, said on CNBC today. That contributed heavily to what was a stacked deck against Fox News, with the broadcaster facing what one legal expert told The New York Times was “unquestionably the strongest defamation case we’ve ever seen against a major media company.”

You mean ‘facts’ and ‘evidence’ of malice and lies and deception, right? You seem to have issues picking the correct flavor for the words you use!

Jim,

It is a quote from NYT Dealbook by Andrew Ross Sorkin. He is an extremely good business writer. It is a twisted statement on purpose.
