Fox News peddles blatant falsehood about so-called voter fraud

Fox News Channel has long been the ratings leader among cable news outlets — mainly because it knows how to rile its core audience, which consists mostly of viewers who are at least 69 years old. The formula is simple: Give the gullible geezers a steady of diet of stuff that will anger them even more than the kids who are always playing in their yards. A perfect example was afforded the other day by Fox anchor Megyn Kelly (above),  who told her viewers that Democratic officials in Colorado have come up with a dastardly scheme that...

Is Fox News a victim of its own success?

In its 18 years of existence, Fox News Channel has been a big ratings and financial success. But as a political influence, the network has been something of a bust.
