  90. Strike this one from the offical count because it's before August '10, but had to toss it in here. Take your pick here of news sources detailing the Acorn pimp video scandal stuff that was selectively edited, and who the creator went to jail for, and which Fox never fact checked http://bit.ly/pGCXuf
  91.  
  92. Also strike this one from my official count here because its old, but still begs to be mentioned. Fox argued in court it's their constitutional right to report liesif they so choose over the whole debacle with the Monsanto milk drug scandal http://blogs.e-rockford.com/applesauce/2009/10/24/six-years-ago-fox-news-successfully-argued-in-court-that-it-had-a-constitutional-right-to-report-lies/
  93.  
  94. Theres many more i didn't post because they went beyond the August '10 start point. There's a whole lot more though.
  95.  
  96. I don't understand why anyone would put any integrity into a network where its president (Ailes) would urge an employee to lie in a partisan attempt to protect Giuliani's campaign, and now recently we see all this nonsense coming out about the hacking scandals.
