    Chris Wallace and Shep Smith are both credible journalists. The attraction of Fox News isn't journalism it's opinion from commentators like Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Tucker Carlson or the clowns of Fox and Friends, all of whom never let the facts get in the way of a good narrative. Using an analogy that I've used before, its viewers watch Fox News for the news much in the same way that people used to read Playboy for the articles.

    One problem. He needs a lot more than 5 billion. A minor detail that is being ignored by the scam.
    But hey, anything he can get will go into his pocket right? Will he refund the money to those who gave if he never gets to his 5 billion plateau? Just exactly where will the money go?

    no such thing. a fact is just that, a fact.
    Sad that there are those out there that think there are different kinds of facts.

    If only it were that easy. Information is distorted, especially when big money is involved. American politics is dirty and I don't believe much of what either side says.

    voting records of those in Congress are facts.
    legal documents are facts.
    ...and ad nauseam. You don't have to just "believe". You can check the facts yourself.
    But of course it's much easier to believe the lies you want to believe.
