You mean there's more than one Fox News?

Republicans embrace their phoniness

The Republican Party has finally admitted what has been fairly obvious for much of the past six years: It produces fake news.

This is not an earth-shattering revelation to anybody who has been paying attention, but, still, it’s an important step for the party to embrace the phoniness.

NRCC Launches Fake News Sites to Attack Democratic Candidates” was a headline in the National Journal on Tuesday.

As Shane Goldmacher reported, “The National Republican Congressional Committee, which came under fire earlier this year for a deceptive series of fake Democratic candidate websites that it later changed after public outcry, has launched a new set of deceptive websites, this time designed to look like local news sources.”

Did you look at the "Faux" news sites and not immediately realize that it was no different than most partisan political blogs ?

Look at this Collin Peterson entry and why would you think this is a news site ? Or this Rick Nolan entry ... both written by Geoff ... and no links to other news stories, sports, business or weather.
Except for being able to be linked via Google searches, isn't this just normal "attack your opponent" messaging to the party base ?
If this was really a "faux" news, they did a pretty lousy job.
