Brits Cite Fox for Lies

The Center for American Progress has the story, via Kos

The British Government's Office of Communications (Ofcom) – the official regulator of the UK's communications industries - recently chastised Fox News and found it in violation of various regulations in that country aimed at preventing the media from deliberately spreading misinformation. Ofcom found that Fox News anchor John Gibson made "false statements by undermining facts."

Imagine that, requiring news programming to be truthful.
