Verb. The act (specifically done in debate) of taking someones words and twisting them into something both totally unrelated and utterly offensive in an attempt to detract attention from how wrong the fox newser may be. Comparable to a red herring, Fox Newsing is different in that it usually makes even less sense than a typical red herring. Typically used as a last resort in a disagreement, fow newsing too often can also lead to a warped sense of reality, wherein the fox newser see's the world however they see fit, or, more commonly however any number of pundits tells them they should.
a. "I think it is wrong that children in third world countries starve to death by the thousands, while children in America are obese."
b. "Oh, so you're a communist then. Fascism doesnt work, alright? Not everything hates America!"
a. "That's not at all what I said, in the slightest. Don't fox news me."
b. "Shut up!"
