But wait, says a Fox commentator - the company is a "total joke" that hasn't hired a single employe for the past year. But wait, Fox commentator Steve Doocy. the company has hired 50 workers and according to the Kansas City Business Journal , expects to increase that number to 100 by the end of the year while expanding its operations to other cities. (Its clients include Staples, Coca-C0la and Frito Lay.)
As such falsehoods continue to serve as the sustenance of Fox, I keep recalling a moment in Dostoevsky's somber murder tale, Crime and Punishment. The author writes of a character who talks about the lies emerging in the case. He says:
"What's the most offensive is not their lying - one can always forgive lying - lying is a delightful thing, for it leads to truth - what is offensive is that they lie and worship their own lying."
Despite Fox's empty pledge to play it straight, the news "analysts" there not only "report", they also decide with what manner of distortion they want to report it.
