Please watch this one :

From Media Matters  : " Fox News host Megyn Kelly misinformed her audience by claiming that that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has not issued a travel ban over Ukraine, in order to bash President Obama over Israel. In fact, the FAA has banned commercial travel over Ukraine since April."

How do we as consumers of news, on either side of the political divide ,deal with this?

It is not just Fox either, the other morning Joe and Mika went round and round on MSNBC with right wing Joe shouting down Mika claiming that St. Ronald of Regan was instantly back in DC when in 1983 the then USSR shot down a Korean airliner with a US Congressman on it. When in fact Ronnie hung out at his California ranch until forced to head back, very begrudgingly to DC.....

How can we as a country , as a people, have any hopes of being an informed populace if we are spoon fed right OR left wing propaganda on a daily basis. Neil and Koda get to hear me yell at the tv every day .
