The FOX News specializes in fuzzy math. When they hear government reports that back up their argument, whatever it is at the time, they say, “Hey, see, we told you this is not working and we need to repeal it!”  But when government figures come out that contradict their arguments, they claim that government conspiracy exists. “See the government that we don’t trust, that said ObamaCare is failing, is now saying that it is working!”

There are people, both in the Republican Party, the Democratic Party, and fringe independents, who only listen to news that backs up their political beliefs. I give you the FOX News audience on the Right and Far-Right. And MSNBC on the Far-Left.  The Right uses FOX News and the Far-Left uses MSNBC for the same reasons that other people use The Onion. To see what is not happening in the world and to make fun of it.

Listening to FOX News is like listening to kids trying to convince their parents that if they allow them to have cake for dinner, it won’t spoil their appetites.  They’ll say “Hey, I had cake before and it didn’t spoil my appetite then. Why would it spoil it now?”  When you point out that the last time they had cake, they had an upset stomach and had to stay home from school the next day, they say, “I hate you! You’re always saying no and won’t let me do anything!”  Seriously, why would anyone interested in real news take FOX News seriously?
