Fox Nation -- Fox News' purportedly non-"biased" and "fair and balanced" website -- has frequently promoted posts from the falsehood-ridden conservative blog NewsBusters.

Fox Nation -- Fox News' purportedly non-"biased" and "fair and balanced" website -- has frequently promoted posts from the falsehood-ridden conservative blog NewsBusters.org. Specifically, as of 10:30 a.m. ET on June 30, six of the 13 stories that the Fox Nation was promoting on its front-page "Media" section came from NewsBusters.

NewsBusters describes itself as "the leader in documenting, exposing and neutralizing liberal media bias" and is a project of the Media Research Center, a self-described "conservative" media watchdog group. NewsBusters and its contributors have a history of promoting falsehoods and misleading or discredited claims about progressives and Democratic figures.

The following are headlines that appeared on June 30 on the Fox Nation and linked to NewsBusters:

Krugman: 'Politicians From Both Parties Stray, but Dems Punish Theirs More Harshly'

Media Ignore EPA Suppressing Skeptical Global Warming Report

Time Magazine Blames California's Mess on... Low Taxes

Krauthammer on Press/Obama: 'The Hot Sex Is Over. They're in the Cigarette Stage'

Oliver Stone: 'Reagan Was a Dumb Son of a Bitch... and Bush Was Dumber'

Sam: It's Hard to Forgive Bible-Thumping GOPers for Sex Scandals

Media Matters for America previously examined Fox Nation's "Politics" subsection between May 1 and May 15 and found that none of the 15 newspaper op-eds and columns that the Fox Nation linked to were written by a progressive figure or presented a favorable view of the Obama administration. Fox Nation has also frequently mocked and made falsehoods about progressives and Democrats.
