Top definition
A farcical television network that operates under the guise of a legitimate "news" channel. Its sole purpose is to pander to Republicans and to reinforce and propagate right-wing conspiracies and propaganda 24/7. One can get a good estimate of the number of Republicans in the country by looking at Faux News viewership statistics.
Person 1: "Hey, did you hear the news? Apparently they found proof that Barack Obama is an Islamic terrorist born in Kenya, and also the anti-Christ. And I found out that Hillary Clinton is a serial killer who's in cahoots with Obama to bring about the biblical end of days!"

Person 2: "Have you been watching Faux News again? These "news" reports sound an awful lot like conservative propaganda."

Person 1: "How'd you guess?! This wasn't from their opinion section, so it was supposedly objective!"

Often mistakenly spelled, and pronounced, Fox News, this is a faux news channel where highly paid talking heads with highly piled hair talk in sound bites about really interesting and important world events.

What really confuses people is that it is a US news network with a French name (mispelled, of course, to further confuse those of us with only a middle school education).

Get a Faux News mug for your friend Trump.
An entertainment network underwritten and owned by Rupert Murdoch carrying nonsensical news-based programs written to appeal to the far-right of American politics without being fettered to archaic values such as journalistic integrity, honesty or objectivity.
Last night, I saw a report on how the government is planning to enact laws to require all people to sell everything they have and donate the proceeds to help unemployed lazy people.

That sounds horrible! I work too hard for my money to have to help those basterds! Where can I see that report?
