Fox News is at it again. As reported on Media Matters this morning, they have been perpetuating a whitewash of history, attempting to eliminate any possible references which would put the President in a good light.

Have they no shame? After all the recent countless times they got caught in propaganda and promised a 'zero tolerance' on misrepresentation, they are still at it.

Their licence should be rescinded because they are without doubt, just another arm of the GOP.

And, there are loads of other reasons why their lisence should be revoked!

Propaganda, is just one of them.

I'm wondering how much their illegal activities have to do with Murdoch splitting up his media empire.

There may be more reasons than we currently know about.

There's no licensing of cable outlets. The licensing only applies to over-the-air broadcasting. Fox is the former.

It simplifies things a whole lot.

We can all pretty much conclude anything outrageous we hear on Fox and its like is false on its face.

Same with Issa, now that his tricks with evidence in this same regard are now on display.

He had quite a bit of the same evidence the Fortune Magazine writer put together in her piece. E-mails that backed up the counter-story she pieced together, etc. Other parties that disputed the supposed whistle-blower's tale, and so forth.

Issa hid all the disputing facts, so as to make his case seem true.

Like the boy who called wolf, if these kinds of sources ever have a true warning or claim to make, someone else will have to make it to make it believable. There is no reason in the world to take a thing these people say as true. They are professional liars, when they are not simply making ridiculous errors.
