AUDIO: Prof attacks Fox News, Wall Street Journal ‘a rag of lies’

Fox News and the Wall Street Journal are “simply lying,” a Florida State University political science professor told his students Monday afternoon.

Dr. William Claggett, an associate professor at FSU, lectured his Public Parties and Campaigns class on party identification when he blamed certain “partisan shows” on providing “rose-colored glasses” for specific parties.

“So you know, when I’m at home clicking through the stations, oh here comes Fox News, the Fox News Channel. Oh, I don’t stop there. I know they’re simply lying, and I keep on going,” Claggett said in an audio recording obtained by Campus Reform. “On the other hand, you know, here comes MSNBC. Well, I’ll stop here for a bit, see what truth I can find out the easy way while I’m reading the New York Times.”

Claggett said that he reads the New York Times, or at least printed out articles, instead of the Wall Street Journal as that publication is a “rag of lies.”
