Fox News doesn't have a broadcasting license. It's a cable network.

Thanks, I was afraid it had to be something like that. So there's really no set of standards or boundary for what a cable network can spew? We need to change that --- I'd suggest that any programming calling itself "news" would have to adhere to certain standards (i.e. stay tethered to reality). Otherwise, you must call yourself "entertainment" and run a disclaimer (something like, the statements uttered by our entertainment staff are fictional and not intended to be taken as factual).

If we can have warnings on silica packs in pill bottles saying "do not eat", we can warn people about what they're watching (just like we do with show having violent scenes or explicit sexual scenes).
