Faux News

Doing some quick research, I found lots of examples of Faux News today:
Two reporters caught on tape conspiring against Senate candidate.
Forged memos regarding armed forces service of Presidential candidate.
Doctored photos in the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Staged photos regarding the aforementioned conflict.
Fake hate crimes reported at George Washington University.
Hiring actors to stage a sting operation for political correctness.
Hiring actors to show sports fans are racists.
Reporting on massacres that never happened.
A Journalistic Cabal created to collude in demonization of people with opposing views while advancing the agenda of the White House.
A page one story about an alleged affair by a candidate for the White House, that had no evidence whatsoever and was later retracted.
Firing someone  for expressing feelings that most of us have known, even though his point was that we need to get past that as a nation.
What do all of these events have in common? They all happened in journalistic organizations not called Fox News.
As Ronald Reagan said:
Well, the trouble with our liberal friends is not that they are ignorant, but that they know so much that isn’t so.
And with the help of organizations like Reuters, CBS, ABC, NBC, The Washington Post, and The New York Times that will continue to be true.
UPDATE: I added some more events and cleaned up the text a bit.
