We all know Fox News takes liberties with the true. The ultra Right-leaning network is a bastion of anti-Obama rhetoric and a haven to many Tea Partiers who think their country is under attack. But can it kill you?

According to Tracy Knauss, Fox News, and its repeated lies and slanted rhetoric, is responsible for her mother’s death.

Knauss explained on Facebook:

FOX NEWS KILLED MY MOTHER — For about 20% of Americans, many of them older and/or uneducated, Fox News is the main source of information. But rest assured Fox is not about news any more than it’s fair and balanced. FOX is the main propaganda arm for the Republican Party and America’s plutocrats. It is THE worst of the corporate owned media. FOX’s founder, Roger Ailes, was the top media consultant to the last four Republican presidents. No way was he going to create a fair or balanced news media. FOX News is killing America one lie at a time, one life at a time. I know this personally.

FOX News killed my precious mother, Hallie. She watched FOX religiously. And when she fell ten days before she died, she refused to go to the doctor because, “I don’t want Obamacare to get all of my information! she declared, recalling the warnings from FOX News “anchors.” She was emphatic. She was not going to consort with the muslim enemy. As she made out her will she told her lawyer, “I don’t want any of my money going to the Muslim Brotherhood!” And her last protestation dealt with “Obama’s death panels.” Mother died just days later. I hold FOX News responsible for my mother’s death. 

While most of us easily brush off Fox News and other extremely biased outlets as just propaganda, apparently others are taking it to heart and to disastrous results.

What do you think? Is Fox News partially responsible for this woman’s death?

    Speaking of the Washington Times – any of you ever watch this panel discussion featuring three very, very, very conservative former editors of Moon’s media, including the WT?

    They will explain what the WT is really all about for you. I would be pissed if I were you. I know many of you don’t read it much now but it has been sucking up billions in overseas Moon cash for 30 years. It was the backbone of the right for many years – regularly quoted by Rush and the gang. It served as “journalistic farm system” for the right. The paper has never had anything remotely to do with a “freer market” of idea. It was built with unpaid Moon member’s labor and kept alive with over two billion dollars from overseas –

    This btw is one of the main sources of the billions Moon used to as he says; to “moonize” America – hard right with the theocrats having inordinate influence.

    Well I don’t think the old codger was entirely wrong. Forget about Fox’ nonsense about Obama’s muslim connections and whatnot, but he’s hardly been a force for good in the world, so a healthy skepticism about the possble impact of Obama’s policies isn’t entirely misplaced.

    His policies (like that of every other american president) have indeed meant death to many people in the BLACK AND NON-EURO world.

    His policies hardly ever mean death to white people though – except for the occasional trailer trash thug they arm and put in uniform to go kill non-white people in far off lands.

    So f uck Obama.

    and yeh, Fox News is to blame for this idiot’s death. Obama kills black people abroad, Fox News kills dumb white people at home.
