Why don't you sit down for 24 hours and make a note of every story you can prove is a fake.

There's your answer.

If you mean "fake" as in biased in any manner, they are ALL fake. And that is not limited to cable "news", it includes every conceivable source of information. Even the theoretical "objective" source is biased because it is not omniscient.

Why do we need to do that?

CNN has said they create fake stories so the Trump Deranged will watch them for something to complain about. Good for ratings.

Is no longer a debate.

FOX comes the closest to being a fake CABLE news network but even they try to actually report the news however slanted and editorialized it often is. I can't answer your poll because you're using the word 'fake' in an ambiguous and incorrect way. Try defining what you mean.

Where's the (especially Fox News) option? Without that I can't vote in your biased little poll.

Fox News was recognized in Canada long ago when they tried to join our Networks.... They were unacceptable and since they actually went to COURT after cases filed against their FALSE reporting of news proven FALSE.. they admitted... They aren't News at all.. BUT Entertainment!! Well, Canada barred their application for licence to access our airways .. What a sigh of relief .. but was still able to see their BS on cable through internet access and Cable expansion accesses! Boy, Canada actually stood up to their brand of "Faux" news.. O'Reilly especially was such a huckster claiming " Fair and Balanced" cr@ppo$$a .. was so glad he finally got the BOOT!!

Fox News' Lies Keep Them Out of Canada
Fox News' Lies Keep Them Out of Canada
Quote:
Canada's Radio Act requires that "a licenser may not broadcast ... any false or misleading news." The provision has kept Fox News and right-wing talk radio out of Canada and helped make Canada a model for liberal democracy and freedom. As a result of that law, Canadians enjoy high quality news coverage, including the kind of foreign affairs and investigative journalism that flourished in this country before Ronald Reagan abolished the "Fairness Doctrine" in 1987. Political dialogue in Canada is marked by civility, modesty, honesty, collegiality, and idealism that have pretty much disappeared on the US airwaves. When Stephen Harper moved to abolish the anti-lying provision of the Radio Act, Canadians rose up to oppose him fearing that their tradition of honest non-partisan news would be replaced by the toxic, overtly partisan, biased and dishonest news coverage familiar to American citizens who listen to Fox News and talk radio. Harper's proposal was timed to facilitate the launch of a new right-wing network, "Sun TV News" which Canadians call "Fox News North."
While I personally recall voting on a Government website against allowing Fox News access to a licence ... All it did was disallow them occupying our personal ( Country space) to claim to speak for Canadians. In truth They actually started to TRASH Canada and their rights to have any say.. belittling our standing in the world.. making fun of us.. it went on and on for years++ Bully's cannot bully us, yet will still stand up for American's when it's the RIGHT THING TO DO!!
