A new analysis by PunditFact found that of every statement made by a Fox News host or guest, over half of them were flat-out false. What’s more, only a measly 8% could be considered completely “true.”
In other words, a fancy review of hundreds of hours of video confirmed what many who watch Fox News with any regularity already know: Fox News lies. A lot. Like all the time.
Which isn’t to say that exposing Fox News’ irresponsible journalism isn’t an admirable goal. Despite its blatant spin doctoring, Fox still captivates a large portion of the news watching audience. On a near nightly basis, Fox News programs like “The O’Reilly Factor” and “The Kelly File” crush the competition. Given what we know about how poorly Fox informs its viewers, that paints a pretty grim picture for the millions who consume it without question.
As you can see, Fox manages to capture an impressive range between “Mostly False” all the way to “Pants on Fire” while at the same time just 40 percent could be said to be even somewhat true.
Some might argue that all news networks are pretty terrible and with the seemingly endless drivel that comes out of a 24-hour channel it’s a valid point. Luckily, PunditFact looked at a few other major stations as well and while they aren’t bastions of veracity, they at least look like they’re trying.
Does this surprise anyone?
Some of the best alpine/woodland military camo is developed by the Swiss, but most of the rest of the world refuse to use it because it has pink and red splotches on it, making it look “unmanly.”
Honestly if you’d prefer to risk it for the sake of looking “manly” then you deserve to get shot.
"That couldn’t possibly work, Roman! Alpenflage is dumb and you’re dumb!”
DO NOT I REPEAT DO NOT PLAY “WHERE’S WALDO” WITH THE SWISS
YOU WILL LOSE
UPDATE: CONTEST HAS BEEN EXTENDED! AND IF YOU ARE NOT 18 YOU CAN STILL REBLOG AND WIN THE BOOKS.

Dominance Behavior in Canids
I didn’t really even WANT to make a post about this.
The alpha-beta-omega model of wolf packs is dead in scientific literature, hammered into the ground, so to speak, and it’s been dead for over ten years. So why am I still hearing about it on TV and reading about it in articles? Why are popular dog trainers that encourage you to “be the alpha” still taken seriously?
I think the unfortunate truth is that the idea that there are strong and ferocious leaders in wolf packs and that you, too, can take on that role with your dog is just somehow appealing to people. Almost romantic, in the older sense of the word. And because of this, it makes money. It sells werewolf media. It sells dog training classes. Educational science channels that have no business promoting this false ideology keep it on board because it gets people watching.
If you couldn’t tell, I’m pretty fed up with the whole thing.
Okay, let’s talk about dominance, particularly what the word even means, because popular media does a terrible job of explaining it.
This is fantastic. I roll my eyes so hard every time I see yet another writer trotting out the alpha/beta shit for their werewolf packs.
If you want to write about a group of werewolves that are emotionally and physically assaulted by the individual they elected to lead them on a regular basis, fine. But don’t pretend that’s really how wolf packs work.
(Although, that would be pretty interesting, actually. If the author recognized that she was writing an unhealthy and abusive dynamic and actually portrayed it as such? Pack alpha character actually a violent, terrorist cult leader? Pretty neat. I’d read it.)
