Another common misconception is that Fox News invoked First Amendment protections in order to retain the “right to lie” during the lengthy legal battle between the couple and the Florida Fox affiliate. There was no mention of any such claim in the appeals court decision, and Akre herself does not corroborate it. Ultimately, the FCC concluded in 2007 that the conflict between Akre and Wilson and the affiliate boiled down to an “editorial dispute … rather than a deliberate effort by [WTVT] to distort news.”
The “right to lie” claims are similar to another false story about Fox News’ trustworthiness, that the network was banned in Canada because it does not meet stringent Canadian broadcast standards for truthfulness
A less than informed liberal viner continued the asinine ASSuption that FOX news sued for the right to lie. Except, this never happened. And, while we are at it, Fox was never, ever, ever banned in Canada due to lying. Why is it that the left continues to further this lie? Desperation to remain viable? Addiction to lies? Or, downright stupidity? It is obvious that the latter is correct. Carry on dimwit democrats but never mention your lie again. WE HAVE EYES ON YOU!!!!
