    It doesn't surprize me. The sad thing is, most fox viewers take everything that fox spews as gospel.

    Fisker Automotive is an American company that outsourced the building of the Karma until it could get its plant on line. The TM philosophy believed in doing the work in-house as opposed to having other people or companies do the work for them. Fox failed to mention that Nissan got a large portion of government money for the Leaf program.

    FOX please look beyond the politics and understand that EVs are part of the "reduction of foreign oil" game plan. What a shame that Fox still wants US (the USA) to be tied to OIL until it runs out. The Saudi's are moving forward with building the worlds largest solar plant to sell that energy back to the world. China is already ahead of us in that respect with the Golmud Station. When are we going to move in that direction Fox News?

    The only problem about this thread is its title:

    "Fox emits misinformation"

    This is a Pleonasmus!

    Heh - quite ironic the situation he finds himself in... ranting against Fox for spreading lies when they should be listening to him (the expert on the Volt) yet he suffers the same issue regarding global warming - still calling it a crock while the experts in climate science keep on telling him otherwise...

    It's one thing for a private citizen--even a prominent one, like Lutz--to have a stubbornly held POV; it's another thing for a major media outlet to broadcast patently false or misleading stories.

    Personally, I have stopped talking about climate change (in my professional role in the energy biz). Renewable energy is domestic and isn't subject to the price volatility that comes with natural gas or oil. And unlike coal or nuclear, people don't die mining the fuel or as a result of catastrophic failures.

    Someone pointed out that Bob is getting a dose of the same stuff he put out a decade ago.

    See WKTEC.

    This deliberate misinformation from a propaganda channel is carefully calibrated to increase viewership by their rabid, low-IQ viewers in an effort to boost flagging ratings. Faux has marginalized themselves so badly that they know there's a large (majority) segment of the population that simply will never believe anything that comes from their news programs.

    The only thing they have going for them is that they are the only network available in certain rural areas. But as high-speed internet expands across the country and the most aged of the population become too old to care to vote, Faux news will be relegated to the dust bin of history and Fox network will stick with some of their more interesting entertainment programming.

    Not related to the loans, but if it's not fabricated it's too funny/sad not to share it:

    Fox coverage on the shootings in Toulouse, France:
