When we talk on the phone and she brings up a Fox story and then we discuss it, she will often change her mind when I point out errors or question the details/positions. The next time we talk, and the same issues are brought up, she's back to believing what Fox originally stated.

Bottom line, if you only take in one news source, the Fox viewers can believe and be indoctrinated. She's old and frightened of the world and change. Unfortunately she also votes, every time, straight down the Fox party line.

The reporter was speaking on behalf of the network.

So..the network was lying and/or incompetent?  Where was this supposed to lead?

The reporter was incompetent. But perhaps the network wants to employ incompetent people, for whatever reason?

It is fox we're talking about, so that's a fair bet. It would appear that the perspective, then, that you referred to fox sharing was that it could and should use incompetent reporters to spread lies which cause immense harm to it's viewers.

Maybe it's time for a warning label, like with smokes?

Not to spread lies, but to spread truth.

We've already acknowledged that the report contained no truth, by it's own chosen referent.

Well I said the reporter was incompetent, not that he was lying.

What would you call it when a person says that a report says something it doesn't say, when they say something false?

I would have to assume that's what the reporter thought it said.

1984 is a fictional book, not real life.

1984 is not a fictional book, it is a work of fiction. The Theory and Practice of Oligarchical Collectivism is a fictional book.
