Christian Fundamentalism and Conservative Evangelicalism in Bed With Lies

No well-informed person should be surprised by any of this.  The following news story is based on a recent study by one of the most famous, nonpartisan fact-checking organizations that monitor the news media in the United States.  FOX News, American Christian fundamentalism, and conservative evangelicalism have been in bed with each other for as long as anyone can remember, so much so that many Americans have come to view FOX News, The Fundies, and Republican Extremists as one and the same.  This story brings to mind a couple of famous Bible verses:

1)  Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. (Matthew 7)

2) Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. (John 8:44)

One has to wonder how any so-called “Christian” faith traditions could live their lives day-in and day-out lying in bed with an organization that is alleged to be the primary generator and purveyor of lies in American broadcast news media.  You can read the news story at the following link:
