More News That You Already Figured Out

I guess this won't surprise you very much:

"Fox News Chief, Roger Ailes, Urged Employee to Lie, Records Show"

And in a somewhat related story:

"Scientists Are Cleared of Misuse of Data

An inquiry by a federal watchdog agency found no evidence that scientists at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration manipulated climate data to buttress the evidence in support of global warming, officials said on Thursday."

And this:

"Poll: Barely Half Of Americans Know Health Care Law Hasn't Been Repealed"

Republicans may not have a clue on earth about how to govern responsibly, but they sure are good at spreading lies, aren't they?

The Ailes thing is a bit convoluted. I had to read it a couple of times (I'm far away and not familiar with Regan).

"Depending on the specifics, the taped conversation could possibly rise to the level of conspiring to lie to federal officials, a federal crime, but prosecutors rarely pursue such cases"

Gee what are the chances of Ailes being charged? Nil to zero?

How about conspiring to lie to the American people? Unfortunately, that's not a crime, because that is what Fox "News" exists for.
