If you want the real factual (information) news without mistruths, exaggeration or personal opinions being passed off as factual news, where do you go? Recently I have been turning to the comic section of our local newspaper. Mary Worth is not all that bad! A lot has been posted on the threads here. I am wondering, "Where did you hear or see it?" Who do you believe? What is your source? Anyone need verification before accepting something as the truth or is one person saying it enough? I also follow Peanuts even though the original writer has died awhile back. Does anyone listen to BBC? Who was it that said "A lie told often enough can soon become the truth?" At least someone's truth.

The party that constantly says the right is racist and sexist just chose their BP based solely on race and sex. The is all you need to know and has nothing to do with FOX news. This is factual news reported from all news outlets.

Please give a recent example of something you see posted derived from Fox news exclusively. My most recent post about Chicago was direct from a Chicago police bulletin and my siblings who live and work in downtown (just telling you my source).

Non Pumpkin Related Board is just what it says. What does this have to do with FOX news? Does it bother you that most folks watch fox news? CNN is just around to bash Trump, that's all that matters with them. Can't trust them for any real truthful news.

Anything wrong with RT America? They like to skewer both radical sides.

Excuse me Marv, lol. Bottom line people are gonna believe and watch whatever makes them feel good. I used to think it was ignorance. It ain't it's like loyalty to a football team that sucks. No matter how bad they are you keep rooting them on. Both sides are well represented here. Call it whatever you want.

RT America is a U.S.-based pay television and internet-based news channel which is part of the RT network, a global multilingual television news network based in Moscow, Russia, funded and controlled by the Russian government.

When Fox so called news propagated the original sin "Lie" that Barack Obama wasn't a US citizen well that said all I needed to know about Fox.

I never mentioned Fox News here. Please stay on topic. I am asking a very simple question which is "What news do you trust?" Only Spudley and Porkchop have actually answered the question so far.

Nice to "see" you here, Marv! and everyone!

I don't trust any of the news providers. I will watch press briefings directly on occasion, and I have watched NHK News from Japan. There are also newscasts available via my digital antenna in English based out of Germany and France. They are probably viewable on the Internet somewhere as well, like everything else.

All news sources have bias in there somewhere, so the question becomes, "Which bias does one listen to?"

Wikipedia on fox news:

Fox News has been described as practicing biased reporting in favor of the Republican Party, the George W. Bush and Donald Trump administrations, and conservative causes while portraying the Democratic Party in a negative light.[15][16][17][18] Critics have cited the channel as detrimental to the integrity of news overall.[19][20] Fox News employees have said that news reporting operates independently of its opinion and commentary programming, and have denied bias in news reporting, while former employees have said that Fox ordered them to "slant the news in favor of conservatives".[21] During Trump's presidency, observers have noted a pronounced tendency of the Fox News Channel to serve as a "mouthpiece" for the administration, providing "propaganda" and a "feedback loop" for Trump, with one presidential scholar stating, "It's the closest we’ve come to having state TV."[22][23]

LOL like we didn't know...

Ok who out here thought Fox News had integrity and no agenda? Who drank the cool aid? lmao.

You don't have to get your news from one source, or two. You can watch all of them. Watch the right bash the left, watch the left bash the right and watch the hand full of people in middle that keep integrity alive. Every channel has good ones and bad ones. But fox news has taken propaganda to a despicable level feeding on ignorance, hatred, fear and xenophobia (if you gotta look that up, your are probably a fox viewer).
With so many viewers its probably not the last time we get a fool like Trump in the White House since the era of fiscal conservative republicans seems to over.

Compare the national news put out by CBS NBC ABC the original networks before cable news networks came around. Anyone that watches national news networks and CNN and FOX can see the original networks line up much more with CNN compared to FOX. l my opinion the original networks don’t have to broadcast exaggerated news (FAKE NEWS) to draw advertisers like Fox News and their commentators like Sean Hannity, Laura Igraham and Tucker Carlson do. If all you watch is Fox you are getting 90% fake news.

I always figured that if a network (Fox)always has to end radio news with "fair and balanced" they are hiding something. CNN and MSNBC just blatantly slant things to the left. Russia Today admits in their name who they represent. But 4 years ago they were the only network to cover Green and Libertarian debates. Had an unbiased moderator, Jesse Ventura's son Tyrell. At least they didn't censor the election like our so-called free press.

Cool story Frank, anyone can edit Wikipedia. You probably just did that right before you posted. Lmao!

Marv, personally I try keeping with the local news outlets. They report the news at the world, national and local levels. They aren't big enough like a CNN or FOX to be biased either. Most of us on here have that option.

One of my best friends and fishing buddy is a homicide detective. We are headed to Lake of the Ozarks to fish in a few, and I get plenty of local stories that way. We use the words "earmuffs kids" quite a bit.

The piece seemed pretty spot on Luke. But lets face it, whether editable or not, these days no facts are safe from conservatives. If it doesn't fit the agenda, or world view or its simply to hard to digest its called fake or a hoax and whatever source it comes from no matter how credible or legit will be questioned publicly and portrait as flawed and bias. From Scientists, to generals to news channels to other politicians. No body is safe.
The one thing they all have in common is that its always the same person accusing them. And its doesn't matter whether they are democrats or republicans. Mere opposition or a different opinion can result in public persecution by this administration. No one is safe.

So where twitter only reaches part of voters, Fox news functions as an amplifier and distributes the presidents mis-information and spin. That's not a secret. That's a fact.

I don’t have twitter and not even sure if I can stream Fox News as I don’t watch it. Not everyone who disagrees with you watches Fox, so not a fact.

OAN and Fox News are your trusted sources? Now I comprehend your stance on current issues Old Rookie. Shows like Jerry Springer, Maury Povich and the Steve Wilco’s show must be on your daytime TV watching list too.

Thanks for the good laugh Rookie, your posts are usually quite comical because you are actually a real person with real opinions. Keep them coming.

One thing for sure is Trump watches and takes his advice from Fox News commentators like Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh. Sad but true! It has been proven many times through Trump’s twitter account. His twitter account is his own worst enemy.

I dont think you could win a debate on here NorthShoreBoyz. You pick the topic... and tell us the "truth" about it. Somehow I think you and the truth have never mixed.

Trump just threw Fox News under the bus, which was smart. Tucker Carlsens latest thing about calling Kamala Harris 'Camel-uh' Harris was just stupid. Trump tried but I think it's over. Stupid people (like myself) outnumber smart people in this country... Trump relies on the people around him to be smart. And... who remains??? Kushner and Old-Rookie. The rest of us are idiots.

Because NSB believes in loyalty to his boy while deriding those of us with loyalty to ours. Makes perfect sense to me.

1) GKins - I’m glad you can identify your shortcomings. Your opinion of yourself is the truth and most people on here will agree with your assessment of yourself...fact

2) Old Rookie - I said nothing about your President and was only commenting on your view of OAN and Fox...fact. Your comments and posts on here speak for themselves. Pretty well travelled and well educated, I’m guessing...Not.

3) Trucktech - I have no allegiance to our boy and we would vote him out in a heartbeat if he lied and acted like your boy on the world stage...fact.

I asked him to do it over a month ago. He apparently is not spending that much time on BigPumpkins. Maybe the GPC should just buy it from him and hire someone to run it? He seems to have lost interest.
