Fox News has won the battle for most-false cable network.
A new survey by the Tampa Bay Times’ PunditFact, looking at the veracity of cable networks, found that Fox News won (or lost) the first prize for having the most falsehoods studied.

The list of Fox-falsies is pretty stellar. Here are a few real doozies:
