  2. Slanted headline:

    The same poll says that 35% of people think that Trump and the Republicans are most responsible.

    You can also take from those results:
    – 56% of people think that the Democrats are responsible
    – 59% of people think that Trump/republicans are responsible.

      Rupert Murdoch has turned Fox into trumpTV; he’s quite happy to treat the truth and journalistic ethics with distain if it suits his political or corporate interests.

      And trump knows Fox is his sock-puppet, hence the WH leak of the Nunes nothing-burger to Fox a full half hour before it was posted up on the WH website.

      John Dean’s on the money: Nixon “might have survived if there’d been a Fox News”

        Calling it a nothing-burger does not make it so. Since when has Russian collusion, fraud and corruption been a “nothing-burger”?
        Hillary Clinton’s name is all over this nothing-burger, even though she cheated and spent $1.2 B on her campaign she still couldn’t win. She is a big-time loser, like all those who call her crimes a nothing-burger.

      The headline is literally true and I’ve seen much worse on the Lefty media side. I don’t see much evidence it is misleading since a 35% result is not anywhere close to a majority and it really just invites the reader to look at the article.
