FOX News Argues in Court That They Don't Have to Tell Truth..


....and wins. It turns out that courts have decided that news media can legally and deliberately lie. Fox made no effort to dispute the fact that it was lying to the court. That's because courts don't like it when they get lied to. They only think it's OK when you get lied to.

In other stories, the NY Times gives another report on court action where FOX News boss Roger Ailes conspired to keep secret information that could have damaged the chances of Mayor Rudy Guiliani- if he had had any chances! Guiliani was the fake conservative that the establishment tried to sell the GOP voters on last time. Hannity for one gave him lots of gushing press. That effort was an epic fail. Who will be the new fake conservative? Looks like Mitt Romney from here.

The story is seriously undermined by the ads on that page.

Don't see why that is so. Either the things reported in the story happened or they didn't.

I don't quite see how Romney could be called a fake conservative. Maybe not the most hard line conservative. But I wouldn't quite call him a fake conservative.

Yes, true stories may be found in the lousiest tabloid rags, and have nothing to do with the veracity of the story, but surrounding the story with with zany conspiracy stories makes it look fake as heck.

Was pro abortion when it suited him. Romney Care is Obama Care at the state level. No serious plan to cut spending- and tax cuts don't count if there are no spending cuts. It just means taxing the next generation. Was with Bush-Kennedy on "no child left behind" fedgove takeover of schools. I can't think of three issues where he has acted in office with more conservative policies than Bill Clinton.

I have ad blocker, so I can't see what you are talking about. I can't even see the ads on this blog. I have no idea who is advertising here. Doesn't change the facts of what I say one bit.

I think that's just an excuse. What in the story do you think is not factual?

...and the 2nd story is from the New York Times. So why do you choose to disbelieve that one?

I don't disbelieve, never claimed to do so, I've just pointed out the sites you've linked to are silly and that silliness undermines the content considerably.

Yes but while you point out he was pro choice before you conviently miss his reasoning on changing his mind. Aren't we supposed to be in the business of wining people to our side. After all Reagan was a democrat before changing his mind. You also conviently miss the fact that no Governor has stood up to the gay marriage lobby as much as Romney did while governor.

I am all for changing hearts and minds. The convenience of the timing makes me wonder if we can't find a presidential nominee who has known all of their public careers that it is wrong to suck the brains out of babies.

But you are ruling out him as a serious conservative, just because he saw the different after starting his career. It was in office he got to see the evidence and said he would rather side with life than not. I think you are seriously short changing Gov Romney.
